We Have Power!!

On early Monday evening Toronto was hit with heavy rain fall and sections of the city were flooded. My family and I were fortunate enough to be spared any flooding in our home but had no electricity from Monday evening till late Wednesday afternoon. My saving grace was that my children are with my in-laws and we were all spared from their discomfort. Having no electricity gave me a new appreciation of what those in Calgary had gone through (their situation was much worse) and how fortunate I am to even have electricity and all the comforts it brings.

Before the kids left I took several pictures of outfit posts and today's features shorts and a sleeveless blouse. I wore this shopping and running around doing errands. I just felt like getting dressed up a bit. It's been happening more often then not.

Lots of help from the kids!

  1. Love those shorts - great color and pattern. Ann Taylor never dissapoints :-)

  2. You look great! Love the top. It's one of those that work for work or for errands. Happy to hear you were spared any flooding. We have a tropical storm that just degenerated to a tropical wave moving towards us and it's gonna rain us out all weekend long. But I don't think it'll be severe.

  3. Great look! Super stylish shorts!

  4. I need to learn how to wear shorts well - here you are showing me - love this

  5. glad you got the power back on. With the recent heat wave, it is intolerable not to have a/c available. Great outfit! I just saw you on BT yesterday. Looks gorgeous as usual :)

  6. You have gorgeous long legs :-) Beautiful look! The orange top is fabulous, I love that colour because it makes my skintone shine.
    Lovely smile of your daughter!

    Too bad you didn't have electricity for such a long time but good to hear you didn't have to suffer any damage.
