Sprig Stripes & Mother's Day

I am back to my regular Friday fashion post.  Last week I missed it because life was just too busy and this year I've really given myself permission to do what I need to in order to feel blogging as a creative, enjoyable and positive experience, not a job.  I have a job.  A busy job.  One that's wife/mother, etc. and one that actually pays the bills.  Speaking of being a mom, last weekend was Mother's Day weekend.  I hope all the moms out there enjoyed the day and were acknowledged in whatever way their family does that.  To all the women out there that have chosen to not be moms, or have had that choice take away from them, I want you to know that I think of you on these hallmark moments.  It's actually the reason I prefer to celebrate and acknowledge March 8th, Internationals Women's day, because it celebrates all women regardless of their status.   That being said, I spent a lovely weekend with my girls, my husband and my own parents.  We keep it super low key and fancy presents are not part of our celebrations.  I did get out the our local greenhouse to pick out some flowers and the girls planted little pots for their grandmother's as a gift.  

I recently ordered this Vero Moda dress from the Bay and instantly fell in love with the cut.  I absolutely adore when the straps are adjustable.  We all have different upper bodies and different levels of comfort of how we share them with the world.  I love that I can adjust it to suite my body, needs and event that I might be wearing the dress for.  I prefer to be able to bend over without worrying about showing off anything too much, especially at work or when I am out and about with my kiddos.  I am also huge fan of stripes and love these vertical navy and white ones.  Another bonus is the cute button detail, I am all ga-ga over buttons and the length.  Basically this dress checks all the boxes for me and it's a new favorite of mine.  Couldn't be happier with my purchase!

It's a long weekend for us here in Saskatchewan and it's also kind of lake kick off season.  We are going up to the lake with some friends and we have great fun planned!  Hope you all enjoy the sunshine and the weekend ahead.
