Whew...

OOTD Feb 20 2010

Outfit Details:

dress - Martin and Osa, earrings - The Bay, tights - Joe Fresh, boots - Frye, bag - Rebecca Minkoff MAC

Excuse me while I crawl out of a tired haze. Maya has been sick and pukey for the last three days. Yesterday, she seemed to be getting better, and she is back to her old self today. In the meantime, I'm recovering from the lack of sleep and the toll of worrying. This is probably the sickest she's ever been, so DH and I went through a lot of "new parent" stress - even though we should be old pros by now.

You probably wouldn't have cared to see me over the last few days - no shower, no make-up, yoga pants, faded tees and greasy hair have been my uniform. Today, I'm looking a bit better since the "no shower" and "greasy hair" have been rectified. (Still wearing the yoga pants and old tee though).

But here's a little shot of my last decent outfit, which I wore to a fundraiser comedy club event on Saturday night. Whenever I'm feeling unsure of what I should wear and want to feel fabulous, I tend to throw on my favourite things. In this case, Frye Adrienne boots, Martin and Osa sweaterdress (love the extra long sleeves), Rebecca Minkoff MAC (which I saved my birthday bucks for) and gold filigree earrings.

Oh wow, you may feel you look slobby now, but I think that is because you took up your week's allocation of hotness in this outfit! You look fantastic. The varying shades of gray/black really work well together. And those Adriennes will always be my favorite boots ever, they add such visual interest to outfits.

Sorry Maya has been sick, that must really be hard on the whole family. Hope she continues to feel better!

Oh lady, you are the very picture of sophistication in this. Glad Maya is recovered, and that you will be soon, too!

Sorry to hear that your little one has been sick.

I love those Frye boots. I want them in navy so badly, but they just haven't been cheap enough. I will stalk ebay.

Thanks for the kind words... I think Maya is all better because she's acting like her happy and cheeky little self again.

Linda, yep... I'm from the GTA. I was just checking out your blog and realized that you are misketch! I've loved your work for a while now. Will be following you too!

Rachel, I was lucky enough to snag these boots when Amazon had them on megasale a few years ago. One of my best purchases since I find all Frye boots unbelievably comfortable.

Sorry to hear about your daughter. I'm sure she'll be up and running around soon.
Those boots are amazing. I'd consider donating an optional organ for them. Beautiful Edith Warton-esque vibe.

I love that dress! I've been hunting for a good sweater dress all season, but now it looks like I will probably just knit one myself before next winter.

Those boots are amazing!

I just discovered your blog through See Jane Remix, and it is absolutely fantastic! I love your style and can't wait to delve deeper :) Also, the clarity and richness of your photos is AMAZING. *I'm not worthy!*
