What are you loving lately?
We are starting to see a bit more sunshine and blue sky. The thermometer that has been stuck below zero for months on end has finally inched its way upwards and I feel like my favorite season of the year is almost upon us. I thought I’d take some time to share what I’m loving right now.
I woke up to this today…

Never mind, I’m sure it’ll all be gone in a few days…fingers crossed!
What I’m Loving Lately
Taking The Pug For Walks Again
As we haven’t been able to do this for months Zoë is enthusiastically enjoying all of the fresh and stinky Spring smells and my body and brain are delighted to get out of the house for some air and exercise.
I was prescribed some new meds for my latest health scare and my taste buds have packed up and gone on vacation. Nothing tastes like it should anymore. The only food that still delivers on its taste promise is an orange. I don’t often eat oranges so this has been a weird dietary change for me. Now I eat an orange a day, which of course keeps scurvy and the White Walkers away. Ha! Is anyone else starting to get pumped about the final season of Game of Thrones? Mind you, it’s been two years since the series stopped, I can barely remember what I did yesterday let alone what Game Of Thrones was about two years ago. I’m crossing my fingers they’ll have an extra detailed recap or some really good flow charts to follow.
If you haven’t seen this brilliant series yet you need to check it out. I’m watching it for the second time, this time with my husband and have almost finished the final season.
Even the second time round the series made me laugh till I cried which is a rarity. I’m going to miss it.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Sharon’s quirky and colorful vintage inspired wardrobe which has been a source of inspiration since I first began watching the series several years ago.
I just discovered Maggie Rogers a week ago and have been listening to her non stop on repeat. It’s not unusual for me to drop everything I’m doing and dance around like a fool while the pug watches, only half amused as I’ve disturbed her from her day long nap which is normally only interrupted by intense bouts of begging for food for her belly.
I like all of her songs but Burning is one of my preferred dancing tunes.
Ebay Score Pucci Maxi Dress
I almost fell over when I won an auction on Ebay for this designer Pucci maxi dress in silk jersey.
This exact same dress previously sold at Harrods for $6,500 US.
The silk jersey feels like hundreds of rose petals kissing my skin.
As much as I loved wearing this incredibly silky piece I have a feeling it will soon wind up in my Etsy store as the color isn’t ideal for me.
What about you? What have you been loving lately?
Are you a fan of animal prints?
A tried and true classic animal prints never go out of style.
I have quite a few pieces in my personal collection that are animal prints. I’m always on the lookout for leopard prints for my Etsy shop which are often snapped up as fast as I can list them.
Animal prints are a surprising neutral and should work with almost everything in your closet.
Animal Prints Never Go Out Of Style
This unique animal print vintage a-line dress includes the whole jaguar in the pattern. The print thrilled me immediately and I was delighted when I managed to make the dress work for my frame with the addition of the belt and some high heel boots.
I thought I’d try this with a different hat for fun.
As much as I like wide brim hats, the 1970s one featured here is one of my favorites, they aren’t as easy to wear as a cotton beret.
Ultimately I decided on wearing the beret.
It isn’t often that I’m drawn to black and white but the print was too good.
Spring may finally be on its way. Yesterday it was +6 C and sunny, warm enough to take the pug for a walk which put a smile on both our faces. This morning it was back below freezing at -3 C but I’m ever hopeful that we can avoid a late March or early April snowstorm this year. When you live in Canada winter is often like an annoying house guest refusing to move on.
Here are some other animal print pieces either from my closet or my store.
This 80’s leopard jumpsuit is just so freaking fab. I need to wear it more often.
