Day 5

I am on day 5 of my style challenge and I feel its going great and think it will only get better. It is making me think outside of the box and to really go through my closet. I am having to find piece that haven’t been worn in a while or not at all. Yes, I am only on day 5 so the though process it still a little on the easier side. I do feel its going to start to get a lot tougher by next week when part of my plan of doing this challenge was to try my hardest to not ware the same thing twice if I can. Yes, there will be some exception as jeans are different. Everyone including me have a couple of pairs that are loved so much that they get worn all the time. So yes I will most like be wearing my jeans more then once, and really who doesn’t.

if you haven’t checked out my outfits on instagram here are the ones from the past few days. I f you are on instagram and want to follow along or try my challenge yourself,  you can do so with the hash tag #MrsLongsStyleChallenge. I would love to see the outfits that you have styled and put together. And for those who are following along I have see some great pieces and cant wait to see the rest.

Enjoy!

A Spring Start

Hello again I feel I should be saying as it has been so long. My March was jammed packed full of life evens and my April is off to the same start.

As I never got to do a post for the month of March here it is in review.
I had an amazing March. If you follow me on instagram you may all ready know this, as I have posted a few pictures there. For some reason I always find time for a quick update as I have a little love for instagrm and a life full of pictures.
My month started off with a wonderful week with my family to the in Cancun Mexico. The place was just beautiful and great for our whole family. There where things for the kids to do everyday. The pool was great as we spent most of our week there and we met a lot of great people. My husband and I could not have asked or wished for a better time. We are already trying to plan our trip back next year.

My month was also full of a few different outfit changes. Now that the season spring has arrived I am hoping to have a better verity of colours and style. The problem I have been having is the calendar is saying it’s spring but I have to say here in Toronto it hasn’t felt to much like it. I could really use some more warmer days as I would really like to get rig of the socks and pull out the flats. I know I really could but I am one of those people that just cant get warm and once my feet are cold that is it an I am done for the day.
so as April is here please send some warm beautiful weather our way so I can put away the boots and bring out the flats and enjoy some good choice in style and fashion as I am a little tired of the winter wardrobes.

Buck & Doe

Yesterday we celebrated my brother and soon to be sister in laws buck & doe. We had a fun time with family in friends and it was a  great way for everyone to meet before the big day. There were games to be played and prizes to be won. Fun was had by everyone!
As it was a buck & doe I felt the need to dress a little on the lumber jack side and go wearing some purple plaid. It was a fun and cool outfit as it got quite hot in there once the hundred people showed up. As it turned out to be a fun evening here below is my sparky lumber jack look I went for.
Enjoy!

Wednesday!!!

It’s another grey day in the city and I’m not feeling to colorful. The outfit I have put together is showing everyone my mood and how I’m feeling, a little dull with a crazy pattern. Guess I should be used to this as August has been more grey and cool then sunny and hot.
The only thing exciting about my outfit today is my necklace. I have had it for 5 years now and purchased it on a cruise ship when my husband and I got married. I have loved this piece of jewelry ever since the day I saw it. It’s just one of those piece to me that will always be my go to accessory.
Well here is what I’m wearing today!

Enjoy!

Feels like Fall!

Today I woke up and the weather was feeling a lot like fall out. The sun was shinning It was just very cool and windy. (14 degrees is just not summer weather to me.) With it being the middle of August I was not so happy with it being so cool out as I’m still waiting on a hot summer. I am starting to think that these hot summers we are used to are just not coming this year. Guess it’s time to star thinking about fall fashion with the hope that it’s going to be a warm one.
For today’s outfit I have pulled out the neutral colours.
