Fashion Finds - July Edition

Fashion Finds - July Edition | City of Creative Dreams

With work, shopping has been almost non-existent, however, I did get a chance to go shopping the week before my weekend getaway. I went to my favourite value village... don't hate until you have gone into the one in the rich areas. I always say those are the best for the fact that rich people donating are like finding awesome treasure... brand clothing at a fraction of the price! So we went as a family because we haven't seen the re-launched store and found my little man some very cute clothing.

I bought these summer shorts because it was time for some new ones that were actually his size. What is summer without adorable shorts? The navy blue Joe Fresh shorts cost me $1.99, the Cherokee grey shorts cost $1.99 and the Children's Place shorts were only $3.99! 


It may have been way too hot for sweaters but it before we know it, fall will be fast approaching... at least that is what I told myself to get me into buying these cute sweaters. The Children's Place light blue sweater cost me $3.99 as well as did the brown GAP sweater and the black Next jacket cost me only $4.24!




Let's get dressed up in these shades of blue, shall we! These dress shirts cost me $3.99 each. 


 Adding the cherry to the top of these dress shirts with a slick dress jacket ranging from $7-8.

Lastly, dress pants to seal the deal, These dress pants each cost me $2.49 each!

Great shopping trip, I must say, I wish that I bought more. Then again, I may not have any room for any more clothing. Guess it is time to move into something bigger to fit in all of these new clothing.

I hope you have some time, I would love to hear from you. Leave a comment to say how much you enjoyed my post or even say hi, follow me on TwitterFacebookGoogle+PinterestInstagram page or even subscribe. I will do the same! Have a wonderfully creative week!

LIVE LOVE LIFE LATELY

LIVE LOVE LIFE LATELY | City of Creative Dreams

More lovely pictures from my trip. I loved this navy blue dress, there is something about it I guess that makes me feel a little royal, a little hot and stylish. I paired it with some fringed, open toed small wedges. It is the next step to heels. I hope that I am not the only one but to be fair it is okay if I am but I haven't worn heels in a while. I don't think that it is practical for running after my active son so when I slide on a dress, I wear these shoes. Makes me feel like a like I get a little height! Love it!

Top 3 Things Kids Should Know Before Kindergarten

Top 3 Things Kids Should Know Before Kindergarten | City of Creative Dreams

What does my child need to know before kindergarten? This question has been floating through my mind for months now. I am still in shock by the fact that my son is even going to kindergarten this September. I thought I had more time I mean I swear he was born yesterday but no, it is happening soon and even though I am personally not ready I need to make sure that he is ready for his big day.

I hated seeing all these long posts making me feel horrible because my child didn't know how to do that 100 things listed on what something thinks my child should know how to do before he starts school. Last I checked, school is supposed to be teaching your child some of these things, not us teaching everything before they go.


Potty Trained
That is one thing that is important. Even if your little one is not fully trained they will learn by watching the others get up to go to the bathroom. Accidents can happen but the best thing to do is to have spare clothing in their backpacks. 

Self Independent
Your child should know how to pull on and off clothing before and after the washroom, also able to take off and on his or her shoes and jacket. It is so easy to fall into the habit of doing everything for your child but it doesn't help when it comes to school. Since you won't be there, it is good for them to know ahead of time to do these things.

Basics
1,2,3's, A,B,C's, shapes and colors. Those are basics that your child should know already. Of course, the school will only enhance on that. Another thing he/she should know is their name but also their last name. Knowing their parent's name is also another importance for if they needed to identify you for any reason they should at least know that mommy's name is not  only mommy.

Don't sweat about everything that your little one needs to know because they will learn how. It will happen. It helps that you teach them, yes but remember that kid learn at their own speeds. It also depends on the age that your little one will be going into kindergarten.

6 Best Outstanding Popsicles Out There

6 Best Outstanding Popsicles Out There | City of Creative Dreams

It is hot out there! Hot is seriously an understatement since I can literally see people melting into a puddle of sweat. I have been pretty cool in my air conditioning workplace and cool subway transit but at home, my medium size fan doesn't always do the trick. The only think that can make me feel better about a heat wave is a delicious treat and what is better than a frozen treat! So I have pulled together some outstanding popsicles out there that I believe are the best. They are creative and more unique than your simple juice in a popsicle mold. Indulge on this!







If that did not cool you down then you are surely missing out! Be sure to check out more sweet frozen treats out there on my Pinterest. That is my go to place for something delicious and yummy! Cool down and stay hydrated this summer!

LIVE LOVE LIFE LATELY

Live Love Life Lately | City of Creative Dreams

Normally, I don't buy shoes often but I couldn't resist. I mean it was on sale at Payless! Recently, I went away for the weekend. One of the days I got had some cherries as a snack (which are my favourite fruit btw) and enjoyed the summery day. I love when clouds are perfectly fluffy. Also, since you enjoy me sharing personal pictures, here is one of my favourites from the weekend. Me and my son looking sharp.
