Travelling fast

I seem to be having to pack a lot and we haven't even found a place to move to yet!

I got to use my new wardrobe planning skills for the annual weekend retreat.  I didn't chose a neutral but just went with my favourite burgundy combos.  You know, not many actually notice that you are wearing the same skirt!  lol  My best look is medium values and monochromatic colour schemes.  So easy!  I will be adding the accent colours for the neutrals with accessories.

The fashion site is focusing on accessories this month.  I had no idea shoes and belts were accessories.  I have always worn earrings but even they need 'bumping up' so it'll be an enlightening month.  Most of these accessories except for purse and shoes comes from the thrift shop.  I had never even looked in their accessory section before.  :O

I will be traveling to Edmonton, a major city, to be with my DD#1 who is facing surgery for the first time in her life.  I'm the blankie and chicken soup brigade.  We will arrive the day before and spend it shopping.  She wants me to keep her from her favourite pastime- books and chocolates, and focused on replenishing her wardrobe.  I now have 'skills' so I'll be happy to usher her into the change room, confiscate her garments, and send in all the possibles.  So fun and it'll be her money we spend and not the Roosters!  lol  She wants, navy, grey and natural (taupe) to be her neutrals and the colour to be burgundy.  I am only on the look out for a burgundy purse.  Here is hoping!

 We are still traveling all over the place looking for the perfect spot.  Timing will be everything!    A smaller barn at this place but tons more yard work!  :/

In the mean time, I need to travel around the flower beds.  After a yes/no/maybe so,  we seem to be settling into YES!  Its Spring!
