It’s definitely a happy Monday today as it is Canadian Thanksgiving. We’ve had a great long weekend so far full of the three best F’s: fun, food & family. Saturday was a bit chaotic for us but in a good way we had a birthday party in the afternoon, then another birthday party and Thanksgiving dinner at my parents place.
Today’s post is featuring one of my new Old Navy purchases the red buffalo check dress, I know many of you have seen this in stores. It’s a super cute fall dress and I snagged it for 30% off. I wore it for our family outing last Tuesday at Ripley’s Aquarium downtown. I always look for comfort and practicality when I’ll be out with the kiddies all day but that doesn’t mean grabbing sneakers and sweats. You really don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort, you can easily make a casual outfit look stylish with good accessories.
The dress stands out on its own so I kept it simple and paired it with black tights and my denim jacket. You know I love these lace-up wedge booties, what can I say they are perfect for fall! This Express leopard infinity scarf is a fave of mine and the black and white goes with anything. I stacked my Tiffany bead bracelets (gifts from my hubby) and I was good to go. A dress is always such an easy piece to style.
The Aquarium is so pretty and quite magical for my girls. We had been before, however, the last time we went was during summer vacation and it was absolute chaos so we didn’t enjoy it as much. To any of my Toronto area readers I recommend going on a weekday (not on a holiday or a school break). If you go when it’s crazy busy you really won’t get the full experience. Here are some of my favourite pictures:
