denim dreams.

Can we all take a second to appreciate this denim jacket? Guys, I’m obsessed with it. It’s so comfortable and versatile, I’ve worn it almost every day since I got it, and I have no regrets about any outfit I pair with it. It’s perfectly over-sized without completely swallowing my petite frame. A true miracle jacket.

I love to rock it casually with some black skinny jeans, a t-shirt and ankle boots for a super cool and casual vibe. It also has massive pockets to make up for the lack of pocket room in women’s skinny jeans.

I’m also in love with the way it wears as a little more of a going out mood. Here I threw my jacket over a simple, thrifted LBD for an effortlessly cool look. (Please note, nothing about me is effortless, or cool – I just like to give off that vibe)

I promise guys, this jacket is the best piece that I have ever purchased from Forever 21 – it’s excellent quality and has a great weight to it – I will wear it until there are holes in it, and then even still (if distressed denim is still trendy).

sweater weather in back alleys.

These past few days in Vancouver have been so cold, what happened to summer? It’s mid-June and it feels like April! I’m so ready for the sun to come back permanently.

Seb and I leave today for England, fingers crossed for better weather there. I’ll write all about it once I’m back.

I worked with a photographer and old friend for this shoot, it was a pleasure to work with Dave again after all these years. I feel comfortable around him and we always have a lot to chat about and to catch up on.

I’m also so thankful that Dave prefers shooting me in all black. It’s not secret that I’m most comfortable wearing black from head to toe, so it makes wardrobe planning that much easier.

Unfortunately, the sweater and boots I’m wearing are discontinued now – as they should be since it’s June. Anyways, I have to go jump on a flight, have a great weekend!

A Sunny Day at the Pier

Last weekend Seb and I took a day trip out to the New Westminster Quay, which happens to be my favourite place I’ve ever been to. I feel more at peace and more happiness when I’m here than anywhere else in the world I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. I love to walk along the boardwalk, explore the market and smell the fresh air.

My mom and I used to come here all the time when I was younger, and it will always hold happy memories. It’s also where Seb and I had our first kiss (sappy, I know). I sure will miss being able to come here whenever I need a pick me up.


a mild day in chinatown.

As we prepare for some big changes in our lives, it’s nice to be able to spend a day outside with my best friend. We had a lovely walk through Olympic Village and Chinatown before grabbing a cup of coffee and just being girls for a while.

There’s so many incredible, interesting places in this city.
