from my closet...

Thursday was Je Suis Prest's 30% off anniversary sale. I met Katie in Brunswick Square after work and we  browsed the racks. Kiera plays with the layout and displays so that everytime I go in there, I find a mixture of new pieces and a pretty sweater or dress I might have missed last time. So, as per usual, I hauled half of the store with me into the dressing room! I left the store happy with 4 new pieces.

My shopping bag on the couch once I got home- the trip to Je Suis Prest was followed by further shopping with Krista & Shauna and then we met Alex and Tabor for dinner @ Urban Deli.

So I decided to do as Jessica Shroeder and play  What I Wore.
(Jessica runs a personal style blog- What I Wore- and posts pictures of what she wore for a particular occasion or event. She and I have slightly different styles- but I do admire hers and I love her blog.)
I photographed my outfits from this weekend:

Dinner @ Lemongrass with B & work friends (Jane, Alex, Shauna, Sara + Justin) and then later, drinks @ Rocky's & Churchill's.
