Style Peek: Weekend Friend Style

Hi friends! Happy Monday to you all...did you have a good weekend? Mine was superb. One of my bestest came in from Calgary for a work conference and extended her stay to include a weekend with me. It had been over a year since we've seen each other so there was oodles to catch up on! Plus since my move to Winnipeg three and a half years ago, I've been missing my strong established circle of girlfriends. It was joyful to spend time with someone who knows me so well. It will be hard to see her go :(

Friday we stayed up late drinking beers on a patio near my house and Saturday we were up bright and early for a day of shopping and eatings (girls fave things!!). We had breakfast at Stella's, browsed the St. Norbert's Farmers Market, shopped on Academy and in the village and had afternoon Margaritas on the patio at Carlos & Murphy. In the evening, J joined us for a bbq and some laziness. It was a scorcher that day so we dressed appropriately...

Floral top - Kohls
Denim shorts - Gap
Flip flops - Joe Fresh
Necklace - Silver Lotus Boutique

Isn't Danielle a cutie? Her style is such a cute mix of surfer/skater girl and super feminine details!

Sunday was another perfect day so J and I decided to whisk Danielle away to my fave place on earth - Gimli! We took the boat and zipped around the lake, stumbling upon the most amazing calm, private beach. We chilled out while J fished, then we had pickeral dinner at the Beach Boy. The day was capped off with frozen yogurt and a walk around the Forks. Perfect!

Floral headscarf - thrifted
Sunglasses - American Eagle Outfitters
Navy tank top - Old Navy

Aaahhhh, I'm totally relaxed after such a great weekend. I love the easy chatting that comes with being old friends.

By the way, I've been in heavy duty scarf hunting mode for my Scarf Swap, and I'm loving the retro 50's headscarf look for summer!

How was your weekend friends?


  1. looks like fun- glad I got to see some sneak peeks on Instagram!

  2. awesome thanks! spent the day in Toronto with a bevy of blogtresses and shopped in Kensington Market!

    found out my bestest from Vancouver can't come this summer but it is because she is trying to adopt the sweetest puppy in the world....so, she is forgiven :)

    love your headscarf!!!

  3. Thanks Lenore! Back at you... I also had a fabulous weekend hanging out and exploring the wonders of WInnipeg and Gimli with you. So nice to see where you live now and your and J's hospitality has been amazing.
