Brights.

When it comes to my purse, my coin pouch, my wallet and my suitcase; I tend to always stick with the basic black. Black is safe, won’t get dirty and goes with everything! At this pointe I pretty much have my black staple ‘everything’, I feel like I need to be a bit more adventurous and grab some bright colours! So many cute options, I think I’m ready to invest in bright neons and funny patterns and designs. I might just start with a new coin purse to ease in! ;)

Receipt Pouch in dot. | J. Crew $40
Color Block Clutch | C Wonder $28
PS1 Wallet | Proenza Schouler $585
Party Girl Coin Purse | Rebecca Minkoff  $55
Neon Yellow Costmetics Case | Tory Burch $55

hello to a new week!

Happy new start to the week!

I’ve been a little MIA here on the blog and I’ve missed you! My husband and I headed down south (California) to celebrate my birthday and to find the sun! We haven’t really been getting any summer weather here in Vancouver, desperate times call for desperate measures! ;)

We had a great time soaking up the sun in LA, Sonoma and San Fran! It was my first time in San Francisco,  I fell in love! What a beautifully unique city. If I could just get up and move I would be relocating! No, no, no, we are not moving there… one of my instagram photos caused a little bit of confusion.

But… It’s good to be back in Vancouver continuing some more birthday celebration. And it looks like the sun might have followed us home! Fingers crossed it stays!

The Floral Blazer

Good morning Monday! Another day and another week to accomplish something amazing. Time to work hard and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Fruits of your labor… hmm, maybe a new floral blazer? Yes, I know there are far more important things to worry about first, but  summer shopping always fits in there too!

I’ve been eyeing a few floral blazers, but haven’t quite crossed the line yet. I’m all over the floral pants, now I think it’s time to move to the blazer. They are so adorable and add such a splash of colour and uniquness to any outfit! Not to mention, it makes it so easy to turn any blah look into something more eye catching!

Any thought or suggestions to lure me over to the other side? ;)… On second thought, I think I’ve just convinced myself!

It doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg to create a relaxing outdoor environment.
