Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Outfit deets:  Dynamite blazer, BCBG top, Sirens envelope / origami skort, Iro heels & Aldo clutch.
 
On Friday night I hit the gym after work which brightened my spirits after a slightly stressful week at work.  I went home and got ready for date night with Marco and he picked me up around 8pm which was sweet--it felt like 'old times' where I'm getting ready on my own and he's waiting for me.  It was also the first time I'd really seen him since he returned from California since I was dead asleep when he got home.

We went to Milestones, had drinks, appetizers and caught up on our week apart during an amazing dinner.  It was so nice to be out and catching up.  I had the California salad with chicken, him the burger and we started off with calamari and the baked garlic-flat bread appy.
 
The next day...
 
More photos after the jump...
...I hit the gym solo and the rushed home to get ready.
 

I met up with my friend and we decided to kick off her birthday celebrations with brunch at... Milestones!  Her pick, haha. 
 
I planned for us to rent a canoe after and take a leisurely paddle down the canal, but, since neither of us are the outdoorsy type, and we had already paid to park downtown, we decided to check out the mall instead (where we discovered Zara is in the midst of their semi-annual sale, hello!).
 

Afterwards, we stopped in at Home Sense, then grabbed a veggie & dip platter at the grocery store to combat my hangry-ness, and then it was off to Winners to do some damage.
 

I got home around 8pm and Marco was out for the evening so I ordered Greek on Wheels for myself and tucked into some Orange is the New Black.  Are any of you watching?  I have three episodes left in season two and I'm trying to prolong it as best I can!
 

Outfit deets:  Mondetta tank and crops (both new from Winners), Payless flip flops & Lululemon bag.
On Sunday morning I hit the gym with Marco--in my new gym duds, no less--and had a great back workout.

From there, we headed over to Baker Street, again, for brunch.  There is always a line, and this time it was extra long despite it being a rainy and drizzly day, but we had our Tim Hortons coffee to sip while we waited and per usual, it was worth the wait.
 

I spent the afternoon being lazy until I finally worked up some energy to get ready and filmed.  We grabbed thai for dinner and I spent the evening editing.
 
Hope you all had a great weekend (no Monday, no!).

Yikes, why all the negativity people! Not necessary!

Anyone who is reading her blog/twitter is clearly over the age of 18. That being said, you are over 18 and cyber bullying......If you don't enjoy reading her blog or twitter stop taking the time out of your day to comment. Grow up and get a life. And it is you the ones who need help.

I think it is pretty clear who is smearing the hate on this blog. Grow up and get a life. Don't like it, don't read it.

Your weekends always look so fun and those breakfasts look delish! Ignore the negativity, haters are gonna hate! Keep doing you :-)

I've been thinking of going to Milestones for my birthday (the big 19 woop woop!) later this month. Would you recommend it as a place for a fun birthday dinner? I've lived in Ottawa forever but I've actually never been haha.

Amanda @ A.Co est. 1984 said...

Yes!! Such a fun and chic spot for a birthday! I would highly recommend. The Pinecrest location is awesome but it's probably better to be downtown (hello 19! Yeah!!). Sit in the lounge/bar side and try the frozen Bellini--the bomb! Happy early birthday!!

Oh my goodness, I just love how you styled your new IRO booties/sandals! You are definitely my fashion inspiration and I just love how you live in Canada. This way, I can actually get my hands on some of your amazing finds. Love you Amanda!! :):)
