How I wore it and a surprise visit to the city!

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Please check to see if you are the winner of the monogrammed golf glove!

Yesterday I had a surprise trip into the city - we were supposed to be going today but the Little Prince is sick and the Suburban Prince has to work tonight so the Bestie and I decided to go alone yesterday rather than take the Little Prince today.  We leapt into action, got showered, dressed and in the car within 45 minutes and sped down the highway!  It was such a gorgeous day and it felt so good to go out without coats!

We hit Starbucks the second we got the car parked then spent a few hours wandering around the Eaton Centre shopping our little hearts out!  Lunch was a shared jerk chicken salad and a side of coconut shrimp!  YUM!

It was such a fun day we didn't want it to end but our families need us so we started making our way back out of the city - but not without a stop in Michaels on the way home!

When I left in the morning I thought the Little Prince just had a cold but by bedtime last night he was throwing up, feverish and well...a hot mess!  Fortunately the Suburban Prince is used to night shifts so he slept sitting up in a chair so the Little Prince could sleep upright.  We think he was throwing up because of all the snotties he was swallowing.  I cant assure you...all the fantasies of having a child never include this part!


I wore this ensemble the other day when I went out for lunch!  This scarf was made by LWhelan over on etsy.  I asked her to include lots of the Mommy and Me fabric since it is one of my favourite Lilly prints!  The sweater is the green cotton cableknit from LLBean.


I decided to put a pink vest over it because even though the weather has been mild here, I live by the lake and sometimes there is a sharp breeze coming off it that can be unpleasant!


I learned two things when I saw this photo.  1.  Clean the mirror before taking photos.  2.  Turn off the flash.  I would've taken more photos but I was in a rush and needed to get out the door!  I will work on my technique and see if I can figure out the best setting for this sort of thing!


Have a fabulous day!

Great outfit!!! Now go clean that mirror!

Suburban Princess said...

LOL I have a toddler...the mirror only stays clean as long as I stand in front of it - the moment I walk away the little one is all over it! He is his mommy's son!

What a cute outfit! I was at the Eaton Centre yesterday too, we could have walked right by each other!
Hope the little Prince is feeling better soon, we have already had two of those 'throw-up nights' during this March Break week and it is only Wednesday. Go figure, the one week were I can get up relatively late (8:00am as opposed to the usual 6:00am) and I haven't been going to sleep till 5 in the morning!

Hope you have a great week!
xoxo

Number 3. We need to see your face too! :)

Suburban Princess said...

Ahhh I will never show a photo of my face on here or identify myself publicly - how could I whine about the people in my life if they could find it?!

I posted from my phone earlier today, or so I thought. Thank you so much for the shout out. I was at the hospital with my mom until they released her, and this made my day!!!

Hope your little guy feels better.

Love the scarf, and your new travel mug too!. I have the same problem with photographing mirrors. I always see every mark on them and realise how dirty the ones in my house really are.!

Savvy Gal said...

You will love using the Lilly travel mug...I use mine ALL the time! I adore that scarf!!! I just received her Lilly-fied flower pin and can't wait to wear it. I'm gonna put one of those scarves on my shopping list. Love the photo--I should photo my outfits that way instead of on the hanger.
