Happy 95th, Grammie!

Today is my Grandmother's 95th birthday, which I think is pretty amazing. Since it is certainly something worth celebrating (95 years of life! Seriously, I hope I inherit those genes!) I'm travelling down to SJ to have dinner with her, along with some other family. I'm super excited to spend some family time, it doesn't happen nearly often enough with us living in various parts of the maritimes, but I'm always very happy when it does!

Now, there are various parts of this outfit that I am thrilled about. First - the shoes. Like every other blog-reader out there, I swooned over all the girls rocking the Seychelle's Blimey, or anything remotely similar. I couldn't find anything similar where I live, and not only was my size sold out in black on the Seychelle's website, the shipping to Canada is also pretty steep. So I sadly swooned, and thought I'd never have anything similar to call my own... UNTIL! I walk into a local consignment boutique and see these shoes. They weren't even on the shelf yet, but my eyes lit up and I asked if they were for sale. And they were. And they were my size. And because I had credit at the store from selling some of my own clothes there, I left without paying a single cent for them! Beautiful!! I don't think they are truely vintage, but am not sure of the brand. Either way, I'm a happy girl. Nothing beats free shoes!

The 2nd part of this outfit that I am in love with is the bracelet - I am completely enamoured with it. It was a very last minute pick up at H&M, it was located near the cash and I am so glad it caught my eye before I checked out. I adore all the rich jewel tones! I think I will be wearing this every possible chance I get this summer!

Oh! And I also added a twitter icon on my sidebar - so now you can all follow me on twitter!

Wishing everyone a beautiful weekend! Happy Friday!
