Easter Bunny Surprise OOTD

style

It has been a while, and for good reason: I’ve been waiting to reveal a big StyleSaVie surprise. The ootd section, to name one, will be getting an update – maternity fashion. I’m just about at the end of my first trimester and bump fashion is on the horizon.

I couldn’t say no to this Jane Plus One ruffle dress. It’s perfectly named, though not maternity fashion, and its stretchy waistline and billowy skirt will easily accommodate my expanding belly.

I am excited for the challenges ahead, maternal and style-related. I know that one in four pregnancies do not carry to term, and 1 in 8 women have struggled with fertility, from first hand experience with my wife and my own pregnancy journey. However, I’m feeling hopeful and am ready to embrace all the feelings and big changes ahead.

What suggestions do you have and what sorts of posts are you wanting to see?

Peasants Feast.

style

My very cool, radically humble friend, Erin, hosts a yearly event called peasants feast. You bring food and drink to share, and you share something of yourself. In past years I’ve seen mime, song, poetry, and video installations. This night always features some quirky entertainment, laughter and lots of surprises.

It always merits, for me anyway, a fabulous outfit.

Dress and boots: Zara

This year was no exception. There was the repotting a plant to the soundtrack of Beyond ThunderDome. A burlesque performance to Fever, Telling the story of the making of a femme fatale. Short stories. Canada Heritage minutes performed at rapid pace. A power point about the highs and lows of teacher-Life, with funny visuals of student work.

Cheers til next year.

Ps. The boots were an impulse purchase and I regret them not at all.
