listen up mother nature....

I am over the rain, wearing a jacket, carrying around my umbrella, and dressing like it's fall. Oh, and I miss the sun. Please bring on summer or at least a warmer spring!

my boyfriend's jeans

Top and Sweater: Anthropologie | Jeans: AG Tomboys | Clutch: Miss Albright | Shoes: Forever21 

I could live in boyfriend jeans. They are comfortable yet stylish and can be worn so many ways. My wardrobe consists of a lot of floral prints and ruffles, so they are a nice contrast to all of the feminine pieces.

colourful weekend

On Monday Andrew (boyfriend) and I headed to Granville Island. After a weekend of mostly rain, we were thrilled to finally see the sun (sort of), and apparently so was the rest of the city! The market was full of happy people buying produce, flowers and delicious treats, us included. After enjoying some yummy baked goods we headed to a friend's for dinner and drinks. What a perfect way to end the weekend.

may long

Hello lovelies, are you as excited for the long weekend as I am? I've been longing to be on a patio with a glass of sangria all week! Most of my weekend activities depend on this nice weather so I'm hoping the sunshine sticks around. Fingers crossed! 

I picked up this great Vancouver travel guide on my way home from work today. It's full of amazing restaurants and shops, I think it will be living in my purse from now on. Discovering a new city is such a fun adventure!

Happy Friday!

shades of green

Top and Sweater: Anthropologie | Jeans: BDG | Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

After two weeks straight of rain, the sun has finally decided to make an appearance in Vancouver. I am trying my best not to let the dismal, gray weather get to me, and today made it worth the effort! This city is SO beautiful! The clear sky allows for a breath taking view of the mountains, everything is a vibrant shade of green and the city is buzzing. Oh, and did I mention the cherry blossoms? 

The turn in the weather has not only brightened my spirits, but has also allowed me to put away my boots and break in my new shoes! Wedges are my favorite trend for spring. I love that I feel a little dressed up and I'm able to comfortably wear them all day! I may need to invest in a few more pairs...

shop crush: bicyclette boutique

On a recent trip to Toronto I stumbled upon a new boutique in my old neighbourhood, Bicyclette, and to my surprise I learned that an old coworker, Paige Boersman, owns it!

Paige launched Bicyclette online in August 2010. She then proceeded to do two pop-up shops and in March opened her permanent location on Queen St. West. She strives for a "downtown feel with a touch of whimsical and nostalgia" and achieves this feeling with vintage props and reproduced pieces upon which she displays her product.

Walking into Bicyclette is like walking into every girl's dream. The all white space, with a touch of glitter, has a dream-like feel and the product is to die for! In addition to independent local designers like jewelry designer, Lauren Elan, and textile designer, Danielle Dengerink, you will also find rare lines from around the world and some great vintage pieces.

I was truly inspired by Paige's beautiful boutique and I can't wait to go back to visit again!

new beginnings

Dress: UO | Cardigan: UO | Tights: Hue | Socks: UO | Bag: Michael by Michael Kors | Shoes: Zigi 

Along with this blog, there have been many recent changes in my life... My boyfriend and I moved in together (ending our long distance relationship) I accepted a new job, and moved across the country from Toronto to Vancouver. I am so excited and inspired by all of these changes; nothing makes me happier than a new adventure! 

I am also excited that spring has finally decided to arrive. Bring on the sunshine and floral dresses!
