YLF is a unique community where we get support for hard moments in our lives but it is also a place where we share the happy moments as well. I would like to share such a moment with you today.
I have sponsored my parents to come to Canada 10 years ago. My mom's only sister is living in Russia. Over these 10 years they met 4 times and the last one was 2 years ago.
My mom had her 70th birthday last Thursday and her sister decided to come for a surprise visit from Russia. I was in on the secret and convinced my mom to move the dinner party from Thursday to Saturday because "I am busy at work". In reality it was because my aunt was arriving on Saturday and we wanted to have a surprise.
I was able to keep the secret for months and my mom had no idea. This morning we drove to Toronto to pick up my aunt from the airport and then showed up in the restaurant. My mom had a shock - she could not believe her eyes! (pic 5) Then she found out that as my birthday gift for her I am sending her and my aunt for a week to a resort in Cuba! They both were very happy and excited (pic 6) - and I was happy and excited too! (if my aunt does not look very happy in the picture this is because she was up for 20+ hours and was very tired)
Now to the WIW part :-) :
Pics 1-3 were what I wore to the trip to the airport. BF jeans are ideal for this 6 hour trip. I am including pictures from the back and the side as well because I was not sure lately that these jeans still look good. Somehow they feel too big and baggy when I look in the mirror but looking at the pictures I think they look ok.
Teal t-neck - Banana republic
KUT BF jeans
BP cognac tall boots
Aqua scarf - a recent b-day present from my friend. I was neglecting my scarves lately but somehow it felt right here.
Pic 4 what I wore to a restaurant to celebrate my Mom's birthday.
Pleione crossover top - Nordstrom

Thank you for looking and for sharing my happy moments with me today!
