THISway



Dress by Shakuhachi from Charlie and Lee (similar here), Hat from Top Shop, Purse by Mi Piaci, Hand Bracelet by Liselott, Heels from Lulu*s

I love everything about days spent with amazing people doing simple things like enjoying the scenery or a walk along the beach, even just a good chat with a girlfriend is such soul food. This was one of those days. It started with a coffee date and then hosting an event at a beautiful store called Kiss and Make up (stay tuned for behind the scenes on that) and ended with a stroll in West Vancouver and dinner with a good friend. So perfect! This dress I borrowed from my friends closet and am in love with the detailed geometric play with the straps. The straps and cut out single handedly change this dress from simple to night out on the town. The purse is kind of a big deal as well, which is why it gets to be the pop of color in this ensemble, it is made out of 24 karat gold leather! I love the dainty size which makes it perfect for fitting necessities. Phone, Wallet and lip gloss thats really all you need. XOXO happy friday loves! Photos by Aaron Schwartz

NYFWinspired

NYFW is around the corner and I have been feeling the buzz all week already. I cant wait to walk the streets in what is the most stylish city by far especially during the week of Fashion Madness. My outfit planning is being built around crop tops, overalls playing with multiple patterns and textures, sneakers where I usually would wear heals and of course some fall layers. Since the weather will be amazing shorts and skirts with layers on top or long  maxis are coming into play as well. I can not wait to see what strutts down the runway for Spring 2014! Follow along on Instagram for my NYFW adventures.

Tee by Lovers + Friends, Shorts by MinkPink, Shirt by Lovers + Friends, Leather Hi Tops by Converse, Purse by Rebecca Minkoff, Rings by Gorjana Griffin and Charlie and Lee

Since being away from Vancouver for almost 3 years this is an extra special post. Back in my home town, (finally the blog caught up to my real life) Gas town has revamped its self into the hot spot place to be and almost comparable to my favorite zone in NY, Soho! I love that this part of town has such a different vibe than the rest of Vancouver. The best restaurants and such a busy bustling scene on the streets. So far, blown away by a these 3 restaurants / lounges called The flying Pig and Diamond Bar and for breakfast a cute little spot called Nelson the Seagull. This day was one of my favorites, grabbed a bike and rode around the entire city including Stanley Park on a beautiful Vancouver day! It seriously is an untouchable city when it comes to scenic views. Plus I was rocking my brand new kicks that I have been on the hunt for forever... these white leather hi tops with a black stripe rather than red! Its all in the details right? I found them in Edmonton, of all places at a very popular shoe store in Canada called Gravity Pope! Also rocking new pieces from the Lovers + Friends fall collection, which literally kills it in every which way. This Tiger tee has so much fierceness going on and I am sure you all know by now that I am a fan of the graphic tee and cut off shorts look by now, so this qualifies pretty much as a daily uniform. Photos by Mike Bishop

DEEPblue


Bikini by top and bottom by Giejo

We finally made it to heaven, or something like it! In the middle of the prairies in western Canada, lies this perfect lake with white sandy beaches and a cabin we stayed at for a couple days. The sunsets there were way to perfect, bright red skies and boat silhouettes, come on! So good! Perfect time for maybe one last bikini post for the season as I feel like we are headed straight for fall layers way to fast. But this bikini was a constant this summer, the mix and match look has always been a favorite and the fit is perfect even staying on through my first adventure on a skidoo! Mix and match your own Giejo bikinis on Shop Bop! Its not to late for bikinis girls, we still have the long weekend coming for us, thank god! Happy friday loves!
