Only happy when it... shines

Last night was busy with Zumba, running in to book club very briefly and then racing to a ringette game. I was very happy to relax later on with my newest favourite invention: Lazy Daiquiri (loads of ice, rum and lime cordial!)

I realize that I'm backlit and the quality of the pictures isn't amazing. And you can't see the detail of my awesome belt that I got for $4! It has flowers and feathers! But you know what is amazing? THERE IS SUN!! We don't get enough of it so I refuse to shut my blinds! In my last job I had to wear sunglasses to see the computer screen and was laughed at continually but it was worth it for the sun. Isn't it amazing how much better we can feel emotionally and physically when there is sun? Sweet Mercy I love the near spring!

dress: Joe Fresh
tights: H&M
shoes: New Look
belt: Ricki's
necklace: self-made

Today I am thankful for puddles. Not because they make me leap over them to save my shoes but because it means that the piles of snow are melting. And in a few months it will be spring!

Lady, those tights are sexy! You are the queen of tights! I have yet to see any fashion blogger who wears groovier tights than you do! :) Love this outfit! Especially the three fourth sleeves and neckline on the dress. Lovely!

Have I mentioned how much I love the way you end your posts, with your grateful statements? I love it. A lot.

You look gorgeous in this dress! The patterned tights are absolutely perfect with it.

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

You have the most creative poses and I only wish I could give myself up, throw my hands in the air, do funny things but I always take my outfit posts under the office building and I am petrified of being seen!

Please keep doing that because they put a smile on my face.

Oh and the lace tights are gorgeous, very sexy even ;)
