1st birthday: wilderness outfits

mk-outfits-5-version-2Choosing family outfits for Remy’s Moonrise Kingdom birthday party has not been easy. I have been going back and forth on what we should wear. Should we dress up as the characters in the film? Geoffrey would be in a khaki scout costume, me in a schoolgirl outfit, and Remy in an island police uniform.

Or should we wear our regular clothes, but stick to the warmer tones that are complementary to the film’s vintage colour palette? Outfits that are also wilderness-inspired? In the end, I decided to go with the latter.

mk-outfits-4Remy is wearing her checked dress from Zara, black tights from Carter’s, and Elk moccasins from Minimoc. I am wearing a brown romper from Threadsence and black tights. Geoffrey has on a plaid shirt and Lucky Brand jeans.

Because we are hiring a photographer, I wanted the photographs to be reminiscent of a themed birthday and not a Halloween party. While I still may alter our outfits before the big day, these are very similar to what we will be wearing as a family.

Less than one week to go! Happy Family Day, Canadians.

threadsence is closing

letter

Rather than publishing an uplifting fashion post, it’s with great sadness on my end that I will be writing about the closing of one of my favourite online stores. Over the last year and a half, I’ve written about my purchases and sales from ThreadSence numerous times. Not only did they offer stylish clothing, but everything was always so reasonably priced and shipped quickly. I always received compliments when I wore or sold my dresses from their site.

Why they have to do this now when I’m less than two months postpartum and still hormonal is beyond comprehension. I feel as if I’m losing a friend. However, as the saying goes “all good things must come to an end.” So, ThreadSence, I guess this is goodbye. You brought so much joy into this prairie girl’s life. You will be missed.

what i wore: swedish floral army

WW6-2Today officially marks my first outfit post of the year!

WW6-1I decided to pair a few of my favourite clothing items together to make what I call my Swedish Floral Army outfit. I chose my favourite Lotta from Stockholm clogs, Forever21 flower leggings, ThreadSence skirt, and my newest H&M crop top. I feel girly, yet badass, and ready to take on the world. Overall, a great attitude to have and outfit to be wearing upon entering the new year!

WW6-3So, 2015, show me what you’re made of!
