Boho with a faux fur shrug

In honour of the weekend, I'm posting an outfit I wore to dinner last Saturday for a troika of birthday celebrations with 'les gars', a group of close male friends I've known since my pre-teens. No surprise here, I was feeling inspired by the 70s. A (consigned) beaded Bob Mackie purse will do that to a girl. After a couple of quiet weekends of painting, cleaning, organizing and errand-running, it was nice to put on some makeup. This past weekend I headed to Kingston, Ontario to visit my sister in her new city of residence. We were joined by our close mutual friend - and recent newlywed - M and her hubby, who live too far for anything but the occasional get-together. It was great to make the most of a weekend with a few of my favourite people. I packed a batch of homemade chocolate-chip cookies and a suitcase of cozy clothes for layering. We enjoyed sunny lakeside walks and saw the leaves start to change colours in a picturesque town that is also my former university stomping grounds.

    That purse is straight up fabulous! I love the beading, it's very intricate looking and is very glam, it works perfectly with the beautiful shrug. It's always so fun to get out for a night and to have a reason to get dressed up! (That big cocktail ring is lovely, it looks lovely with your nails.)


I genuinely enjoy reading everyone's comments. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!
