Fancy Soirée

So, we attended my mom's President's Banquet to mark the end of her second mandate as the Ontario Teacher's Federation's President. We were not going to miss this milestone, so out we went to purchase fancy clothes. I already had an outfit planned out for this event, but seeing as I could no longer wear that, I had to kick it into high gear and find an alternative. Off to Banana Republic I went! I know I can always count on BR for classic pieces. I was lucky enough to snag this sapphire blue dress on sale and got some nude sandals to go with it. The necklace and earring set is one I've had for ages, and had been planning on wearing it to this event, so when I found the blue dress, it was meant to be! This jewellery was actually stored in its original clam box and survived the fire and smoke damage. The final missing link to complete the look was a clutch. I waltzed into Aldo and low and behold found the perfect pink bag on clearance. I swear, my shopping karma was definitely on point that day! We had an absolute blast that evening! It was great seeing friends and family and meeting who my mom has been working with all year. She is definitely a passionate and devoted teacher and all that she has done for the teaching profession over the years is not going unnoticed. I am extremely proud of the work she has done and can only hope to one day be as successful in life as she has been. She is the best role model a daughter can ask for. Je t'aime maman!
