utilitarian garden...

This week has been a busy blogging week- I've been trying to play catch up on my 30 for 30 posts, fighting a heavy chest and head cold, and meanwhile there's a lot of current fashionable happenings to cover! This has lead me to double up on blogging to cover all my current interests as well as posting  for Kendi's 30 for 30 fashion challenge I've been participating in.

Oh, and by the way, you should really check out some of my fellow remixers! (I plan to eventually do a post showcasing my favourite fellow remixers somewhere along this 30 outfit's on the long list of great blog post ideas I have been jotting down.)

For this outfit, I took a floral print summer dress and paired it with a military shirt, boots and tights to make it more seasonally appropriate. I wore this outfit Monday for a day of work and to attend the Customer Appreciation Event at Reflections Day Spa that evening.

I love the green jacket belted over the summery dress. I have a fancy dress that I added to my 30x30 that I was thinking about wearing for day with a similar green jacket over... thanks for the inspiration!

Ooh, I love it! That's a great summer dress to make seasonally appropriate. That green shirt really makes it pop.
