weekly outfits (36)

Short and sweet is the goal today. It’s the beginning of Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, and we are hopefully going to have time to go to our town agricultural fair  if the weather cooperates.  It’s raining now, and we’d rather not walk through the wetness and mud on the ground!

Last Saturday I photographed a wedding and wore this outfit.  It’s not what I’d wear as a guest, but it works for photographing because it has a high neckline, I am can move around and bend freely while still keeping my lower half covered, and the whole outfit sort of blends into the background.


I had David get some shots of my hair, too because this was the first time I attempted this style for a whole day.  With several well placed pins, I was able to keep my dutch braid intact all day!

October 1 was the start of the new fashion challenge I’m doing.  The theme for the day was “brown” so I used a couple different shades.

On October 3 we had the theme of “cozy”, which was a bit tricky since I had to work.  I decided to wear one of my fav maxi dresses over a long sleeved top (for warmth aka coziness) and this long short sleeved cardigan.  I was pretty pleased with this outfit!


For a day at home spent canning (again!) I wore my comfy new maxi skirt and a sweater I got last year.  The fashion prompt was “fall layers” so I wore a tank under my sweater, which I pretty much always do anyways!  I also received my new Flexi Clips in the mail and used the sunflower one for my braid.

Yesterday’s challenge theme was “sweater weather”, but it was surprisingly warm during the day!  In my hair I wore the other new Flexi in a half up dutch braid/bun.  Are you tired of seeing dutch braids yet? I haven’t quite mastered the french braid so this style has been my go to because it is easy, quick, and keeps my hair out of my way.



I am LOVING this orange cardigan, especially paired with this thrifted dress.  I actually wore almost this exact outfit last week but it never made it to the blog.  You can see a close up of the dress print here on IG.


Happy Thanksgiving, fellow Canadians!
