thrifted threads: fallen plum

welcome to 'what i wore wednesday'
today i'm linking up with lindsey for some fashion fun
fall has definitely arrived.
the temperature has cooled down quite a bit 
which is fantastic, because harlow and i can walk in comfort anytime of the day now. 
with the cooler air, i am usually chasing after him, calling for him to slow down instead of him lagging behind me wondering where to find the nearest water bowl.

these days...i live in long sleeve cotton shirts (thrifted) 
and my favourite cut-off jeans (also thrifted)
after such a long hot and dry summer, 
we had so much heavy rain and strong winds in such a short time period
 that caused havoc to so many trees.
i was sad to see that this old plum tree up our road came down.
it was a beautiful tree - both inside and out!!!
if you are wondering why this momma is smiling
yesterday...was the first day back to school for the children in british columbia.
for my high schoolers, it was a short assembly to pick up their schedules 
followed by a school barbecue.

even though there are a couple of needed changes 
to their time tables that i have to attend to, 
it looks like it is going to be a great year of learning!!!
wishing you all a happy humpday



  1. Hope your kiddos enjoyed their first day back. Plum looks lovely on you :)

  2. How sad to lose a nice tree. But how interesting is the pattern inside. Kim is right - that color of that shirt looks great on you. I don't come here often enough. I just scrolled through a few posts and your pictures tell me you live in a lovely place. And I want to say I'm sorry to read of the passing of your aunt recently. Hugs to you.

  3. Erica you are such a cutie- you look lovely- sad news about the tree :(

  4. I hope your teens have a super year!
    Yes, plum is a great color on you.
    I'm sorry about the tree, we have lost a few due to this weather too, so heartbreaking.
    Have a great weekend.


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
