I ordered this maxi dress off asos a few days ago with high hopes and am so happy with it! It has a slit on both sides that makes it more interesting than your average maxi dress and the jersey is a nice light material.
I wanted to keep it a really easy but stylish look with few accessories; I didn’t want to get pedantic and lose the effortless essence. This is going to be my go-to look for summer!
Maxi dress is definitive warehouse (ordered off asos), belt is h&m, wedge heels and sunglasses from Aldo, bag is Louis Vuitton, cuff is Joe Fresh, bracelet is by Paired Hummingbirds
I took these photos when it was quite warm but it’s gotten a bit chilly so if you’re wondering I took these photos last week. I’m really excited because the Vancouver Art Gallery has a new Modernist exhibit that I’ll definitely be checking out soon! In the meanwhile, it’s the boy and me’s anniversary this weekend and I’ve got a special dress waiting to show you guys for the occasion! Stay tuned =)
Oh! how I love, on a fair summer’s eve,
When streams of light pour down the golden west,
And on the balmy zephyrs tranquil rest
The silver clouds, — far, far away to leave
All meaner thoughts, and take a sweet reprieve
From little cares; to find, with easy quest,
A fragrant wild, with Nature’s beauty drest,
And there into delight my soul deceive.
There warm my breast with patriotic lore,
Musing on Milton’s fate — on Sydney’s bier –
Till their stern forms before my mind arise:
Perhaps on wing of Poesy upsoar,
Full often dropping a delicious tear,
When some melodious sorrow spells mine eyes.
I took these photos a couple of weeks ago in the glorious and beautiful sunshine to practice my photography skills. I think I’m getting better but I definitely need to keep practicing to take consistent photos worth showing.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
I’m really excited to show you guys my first truly vintage piece! I’ve been looking for high waisted denim shorts for awhile and I found these at Mintage on Commercial Drive. I absolutely love that they’re pinstriped; it evokes a really nostalgic feel of decades past.
I’ve gotten sick again and I lost my voice for a day and a half despite it being ‘summer’. I swear, my body has the worst immune system! I lose my voice probably twice a year and have a runny nose for around nine months of the year. Anyway, I watched The Hurt Locker which is amazing, by the way, and am about to embark on the Lord of the Rings trilogy finally!
I had never tried green nail polish before so I tried this ‘jade’ shade from Joe Fresh and added some green to the crease of my eye for something different and just a little edgy to round off the look.
Leather jacket from Danier Leather, pocket tank from Club Monaco, high waisted denim shorts are vintage, tights from Daiso, ankle boots are Aldo, purse is Rebecca Minkoff
I hope you’ve all been having a great week so far! My parents are leaving for Paris on Sunday and I’m really excited for them. I also can’t wait to have them out of the house, especially considering this is only the second time they’ve ever left the house to just me and my siblings. Here’s hoping the weather is sunny for them so they can really enjoy the beauty of the city.
