Wearing a cape makes me a superhero right?











Hope everyone had a great mothers day. I spent the day with my mama doing what we do best, shopping! Found a couple really cute items I can't wait to show off over the next little while. When we woke up this morning, the ground was covered in snow. Yuck. It all melted by noon though (and before I was able to snap many pics, just got the one of the tree in our front yard. Most of the snow was melted off, but you can see a little bit if you look close) It still stayed really cold throughout the day, which was a great excuse for breaking out my cape. The cape I found while shopping with my mama one day in the fall. I saw it and though "ha ha, look at the silly cape. I'll try it on for fun." Joke was on me though, cause I loved it and bought it. Today's dress I've shown a zillion times before, but it's my favourite. It's my only time wearing it during these 27 days, so only wearing one of your favourite things once during 27 days is quite a feat.
Between shopping we stopped down by the lake so my mama could snap some pictures for me. It was FREEZING and so windy. MY cape actually ended up blowing up over my head at one point like those head funnels they put on dogs to keep them from chewing their stitches. At the lake we saw an adorable goose family. Mama Goose was pretty protective and didn't let us get too close, we got hissed at. (A hissing goose is actually pretty scary) My mom managed to grab a couple pics though.
Outfit today was:
Dress & Stockings: Ricki's
Cape: Sears
Necklace: Some little store in Montreal
Shoes: Zellers
Purse: Aldo's
