Weekend errands in Penningtons

Weekends are the best! No work, no stress, none of this “I gotta get up early to beat the traffic” nonsense, and definitely no negativity to bring life down! The weekends were made for relaxation, rejuvenation and most importantly….fun!

This past weekend was great….dinner and ice cream with friends, wine and appetizers with the hubby, and a last minute sprint to my local Penningtons to find a new spring outfit!

I’ve viewed white coloured clothing as an enemy in the past but lately I’ve come to love it! I still love my dark clothing but slowly and surely I’m finding more and more flattering options in lighter shades.

For this new spring outfit I chose this flattering white sleeveless linen vest from Penningtons.

This military inspired sleeveless vest is made of a light linen blend featuring wide collars, a drawstring and large side pockets.  This vest also comes in green.

I decided on a different coloured Jean this time, usually I’ll get the typical blue jean that we all know and love but I was really feeling these grey skinnies when I saw them. The Sales Associate Kim convinced me that they would look great with the vest, plus the rhinestone design on the back pocket was so cute!

These jeans are made of a light weight cotton blend with enough stretch to feel super comfy…AND they fit high on the waist which I really love because I can’t stand a jean that fits below the muffin top!

The knit top is also from Penningtons, I’d consider it a basic but not too basic because of its string detail in the front. It Features a high-low hemline that is long enough to comfortably wear tight leggings with.

I was very happy this past weekend, it was bright, the time spent with friends and my hubby was fun, and I found a fabulous new spring outfit to feature on the blog 🙂
