FABULOUS FRIDAYS: Mother’s Day, Challenges DIY’s…And a Question

Lifestyling – All in a Week…

Gonna hit you with my question right from the start…Would you guys be interested in me doing a weekly Link Party? I always link my blog to other blogs- and I enjoy this so much. I get to read what other bloggers have to say and I think it’s a great way to open the communication and to get tons of ideas and open up our minds. Plus it gives us all exposure- win/win!

I was thinking of doing a Linksy every Friday. What do you think? Please let me know as I would love to get your feedback on this! Thanks!

Now onto the post! So here we are knocking on Weekend’s door…already?!  It’s been pretty busy!  So here is what life in this styling diva’s world looked like:

I loved joining another challenge on Instagram:  #7daysofprints! It was a lot of fun.  This was led by Annette from @vintageplendor and Aubrey of @thedandyliar. Mixing prints can be so liberating if you just go with the flow

Here are some of my print-mixing styles for this challenge (some of these you’ve seen before!) :

Here’s a clip of me styling these up:

And of course, for me there’s nothing more perfect in my styling world…than doing at least one or more diy’s !

What was once a boring white top who’s had its days, that is now-under this striped blouse- a newly cropped top turned dickey

Here’s a clip of the diy and styling (you also get a glimpse of my Mother’s Day Gift!).  At the end of the clip I also add the diy of an old filing cabinet we’ve had for centuries lol!…we gave it a facelift!

This was an old ugly filing cabinet that became super cute I find! Don’t you?

And of course there was my ‘Dress into a Cardi’ diy that I wrote about here.

What about Mother’s Day though? Memorable that’s for sure, is all I can say.  Who would have thought we would be social distancing with our own kids and grand-kids?  I found this very difficult- but at least I got to see them! Even if from afar. 

Keeping Social distancing away from these loves is so difficult.

I recieved a beautiful piece of jewelry from my kids- earrings, by Katherine Karambelas!

Then yesterday, I received this beautiful art work from a very talented Montreal artist: Shiny Art.  This is my blog post pic- I’m thrilled!

Finally, maybe the warm weather is really here to stay?  Have a wonderful weekend, and week to come my Lovelies,

THE FRIDAY FASHIONPHILE: What Would Carrie Bradshaw Wear During Quarantine?

Fact:  Carrie Bradshaw is my fashion muse.  I’m completely obsessed with her styling.  Where do you think my love for mixing patterns, styles and colors comes from?  And that whole thing with her being a writer…another thing we both have in common.

So, as I bring you fashion inspiration here and on my Insta feed, it got me pondering about what Carrie might be wearing if she were in quarantine.  Hmm, based on what she wore, it would probably be original, creative, laissez-faire – but most of all, fun! 

Let’s look at some of her looks from Sex in the City and see how she can inspire us during this confinement time.

Let’s start by rummaging in our own closets. Ahh we should all look at our wardrobes in such an endearing way- just look at her whole demeanour!

And trying on some of your clothes and just dress up for the fun of it!

And maybe doing some unboxing of things you haven’t had a chance to wear yet!

Choosing the right fresh looks that are both invigorating and yet still laid back- like this cutesy shirt outfit!

Putting your feet up to relax while still upholding a bit a glam…maybe sipping something cool…confinement at its best!

Or maybe a cutesy Tee with motif pants just for hanging out and chit chatting on the phone, catching up with people you miss seeing.

But a girl’s gotta work- and that doesn’t mean staying in your pj’s just because you’re working from home…unless that’s your statement for the day. Check out all these cute looks Carrie wears while hammering away at her laptop…

How chic is this?
And this one!
Slip dress!
Love the KImono look!
Every working girl needs a Rolling Stones Tee.
Something about pearls and the feeling they give you…ahhh!
Adorable little dress…
Dresses can be darling as well as super comfy (just look at how she’s sitting!)
And…we still have to eat…so for a quick trip to the grocery store- look how cute! And obviously if it really were during this quarantine- betcha Carrie would have the ultimate fashionable mask!
Ok…This has got to be my very favourite grocery shopping look!
And we can’t forget puppy duty! Isn’t this outfit da bomb?!
Just try not to get closer than 2 meters from others!
And after all that…just call it a day! Adorable silk top and she’s got her blanky to snuggle…luxury!
And it starts all over again in the morning…Back to the closet!



Hope you’ve enjoyed these ‘what would Carrie wear during confinement’ moments! Keeps me dreaming of fun styling whatever the situation. And now…Back to Work!!!!

How are you styling your looks during this quarantine? Please let me know in your comments.
