What’s a girl to do when the weather looks like this…
47th day in a row yet again?
Only one thing: go shopping!!
It just worked out that Mom and I had a date for our May Outing of the Month yesterday – and that we had pre-selected Conestoga Mall as our destination. When you can’t see the outside conditions, the weather is whatever you want it to be, right?
We started off at…
…where mom was on the hunt for some new jammies. We had great luck – she ended up with three pairs. I was the ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’ voice of reason. Also the re-hanger-upper of cast-offs. You can take the girl out of the store, but you can’t take the retail out of the girl…
Then we headed over to Old Navy. We mostly just poked about but I did score…
I chose the brightest pair I could find. Thanks for the treat, mom! (Payback for hanging the discarded pajamas?!).
We toured around…
Since they are no longer located in the mall across the street, we *needed* to take a walk-thru.
Then it was on to…
I’m totally laughing over how many 80’s looks are back in style right now. Cropped tshirts, neon colours, shirt dresses…all being featured right now at the usual H&M reasonable price point.
By now it was lunchtime!
I’ve been wanting to try wonton soup + noodles the last 2-3 times we’ve lunched at the mall, and always have gone with an alternate option. With the damp chill still in the air, today was the day!
Haha, I’m carrying over the spring rolls theme from yesterday!
Mom went with one of her favourites, the cottage cheese + fruit plate from Cultures.
We strolled through Winners after our break. As per usual for us, zero luck. Mom and I do not know how to shop Winners. Sharon, please come with us next time, and work your winning Winner’s ways, ok?!
Hey! We didn’t know this was here!
I snapped a photo of a divine dress that I now covet:
Don’t you just love that retro styling??
When we exited the mall, it was still cloudy but at least the rain had stopped. Nevermind – our spirits were high after our very fun outing. Thanks, Mom!
Now where will we go in June?
When’s the last time you shopped at a mall? Any interesting purchases? I don’t get to Conestoga Mall all that often as I tend to just shop in Uptown Waterloo (my neighbourhood).

Explain me this, if you will…
Why are these geese standing on one foot?!?
