Last weekend we headed down to Lethbridge to see my family and to attend my high school reunion. I’m not going to lie, I was pretty nervous about the event! I’m not even really sure why, it just seemed like an awkward situation to be in a room full of people you used to know 15 years ago… In the end, it was a really fun evening and I loved catching up with a great group of people. I’m glad I went.
The best part of the weekend though, was spending a few days with my family. My brothers and their wife/girlfriend came over and I got lots of time with my adorable nephew who I almost zipped into my suitcase and brought home. Seriously, he gets cuter every time I see him and I am turning into the crazy auntie who can’t get enough. My mom and dad got up early with Ella and I SO enjoyed a lazy morning in bed and coffee in my pj’s. We are so incredibly lucky that both sets of our parents help us out a tonne. Since they don’t live close by, they really make such an effort to give us breaks when we visit. It’s the best.
I hadn’t seen my family since my birthday and they all spoiled me. My sister in law, who always finds the cutest things, picked up this kimono for me at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery in Lethbridge. It is made by a Calgary shop called Lost in Layers. They have a few stockists around southern Alberta (including SAAG) as well as an Etsy shop and a website. She only makes two kimonos from each piece of fabric, so they really are unique pieces with a custom feel. There are so many cute ones and I am loving her bridal collection (such a cute idea for you and your girls the morning of). Head to the website or Etsy shop to browse. For you gals in YYC or YEG, watch the website for upcoming pop up shops too!
This particular pattern is so bright and springy and I love how colourful it is. I kept it casual and easy by pairing it with jeans and a tee and a cute pair of wedges. This is legitimately an outfit I would wear to the park with Ella (minus the wedges) or out for a casual dinner. This piece is so versatile and I have a few more ways that I can’t wait to style it!
Have a great rest of your week! As always, THANK YOU so much for following along 🙂
