What is Super Mario’s favourite fabric?

Denim, denim, denim.

Sing it to the Nintendo tune. It’s a terrible joke, but it pops Into my head every time I think about wearing this gorgeous denim trench. The Canadian tuxedo, denim on denim, is the quintessential Canuck fashion choice. Pair a trench with great boots from Clarks (complete with orthotics), some basics and a cool attitude and it’s an outfit that works as well with a belly as without.

Purposefully did no touching up on these photos. We all need a bit more realness, right?

Also, I’m not super keen on matching my shoes to my handbag. obvs. All my fashion choices are practical – Can I walk in these shoes? Am I warm enough? If I get too hot, can I take some of this off? Can I sit and eat a massive meal in these, as baby kicks me in the guts, and still feel comfortable? If yes, proceed.

Cheers to you and hoping for many blue skies ahead.

Why is it such a task to upload a few snaps from the UK trip? Maybe because I’m seven months pregnant. Yup. Probably that. But here is an OOTD with rose quartz necklace, beaded bracelets, rose tank, cuffed boyfriend jeans and a colourful HM dress worn unbuttoned as a layer.

A hop over the pond: What to pack for 10 days in the UK

Indulge

Vacation Packing 101, or 102 if you consider this the upgrade from my trip this weekend (Cottage Trip)

Hot on the heels of a gorgeous cottage getaway (stay tuned for that), I am packing it up for a vacay to the UK. I’m going with my mum, while my lovely wife stays on the homefront. I managed to pack for 4 days of beach and countryside in a carryon (including all my pregnancy vitamins and meds), so this time, the challenge will be taking all those extras, for more than twice the time away, in a medium sized case and soft-sided carryon. I’m a classic over-packer.

The UK is the perfect not-too-hot, not-too-crowded, great healthcare in case of emergency destination for a pregnant gal on the go. So, as I lay out my look book for the days away, what is the inspiration?

Here you go! For all images, links and credits, check out my Pinterest page, Vacation Lookbook 

Dresses will the the staple of this trip, with some basic black pants (one flowy, one pair of skinny jeans) and two skirts thrown into the mix.

Some hats, a classic bag and comfortable shoes are also making the cut. Simple gold necklaces, a few good bracelets and my wedding ring will be the basics that come along.

Can’t wait to get wheels up… I’ll be posting as I go. Cheerio and see you on the other side!

Heading to a beautiful house in Prince Edward County, near Sandbanks Provincial park… and I’m ready to go. With WhoWhatWear’s inspiration, I made a list of my own and some pics for good measure.

H&M (above) has some awesome suggestions for easy vacation palettes and pieces that mix and match effortlessly.

I’ll be packing basics that intermix easily, go from day to night (just in case it gets chilly) and can go anywhere – from poolside to the fruit orchard, to the winery (not for me) or small town street for ice cream.

Stay tuned for sun and fun pics with the little nieces and family!
