Tacos & Tequila

 More Mexico pics, you ask? You betcha! I've actually got quite a few photos that I haven't had the chance to show you yet and I can't believe it's already been a month! I'm so far behind... But I have to admit that it's pretty fun to revisit them after being home for a while. It brings back a flood of good memories and is seriously making me want to go on another trip!

On this particular day, we checked out the town of Puerto Vallarta, drove along the coastline and up into the mountains to do some tequila tasting. So, before this trip, I was far from a fan of tequila and even though everyone told me I would change my mind when I tasted the real thing, I was still quite a skeptic. But, I have to say -- the real stuff is really really tasty! They even had chocolate and gummy bear flavors. They sure do know how to impress a girl :)

For the occasion, I obviously had to wear my Tacos & Tequila top that I had picked up especially for this trip. I didn't actually get the chance to eat any tacos on this day, but I did have plenty of tequila! And I'm aware that these shorts look about 4 sizes too big on me, but I am almost certain this is due to the fact that I lost about 10 lbs from sweating on this day alone. While I was there, everything was hanging off me as though I hadn't eaten in weeks! But don't worry -- I got back to my regular size the second I got back to Vancouver.

I hope you have an amazing long weekend!! I'm going to spend it with some good friends that I don't get to see nearly often enough. Now, time to catch the ferry!

Crochet & Leather

Happy Hump Day! I keep anticipating (with dread) the beginning of fall but am once again pleasantly surprised with the gorgeous hot day we've had. I really can't get enough and am trying to take every opportunity to soak it in. I'm also trying to get as much wear as possible out of my summer clothes before they have to be tucked away to the back of my wardrobe for another 10 months. This outfit is actually a recycle of a look I wore for a photoshoot I took part in for KVBijou, but I loved it so much that I decided to wear it again. To be honest, I wear these shorts pretty much every second day, so it's no surprise they're on the blog once again. I just can't avoid these items that go with everything!

Another item that goes with absolutely everything is my new Daniel Wellington Watch! I've been on the hunt for a new watch with a classic face and leather strap and am so excited to have found it in this brand. The watch is everything that I was hoping for and I have a feeling this one won't be coming off my wrist anytime soon. And the best news is that you can get any item from Daniel Wellington at 15% off using the code "stylingmylife"!! You're welcome :)

Project Warehouse

 On Saturday, I co-hosted Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren's Project Warehouse event at the Bay and it was such a blast! Thank you so much to everyone that came. There were lots of drinks, food, amazing Avicii music (spun by the adorable DJ Flipout), dancing and, of course, awesome fashion. I wore an entire look by Denim & Supply and it has made me actually begin to get excited for fall fashion. I was dreading it for a while there, but being able to wear fun stuff like blazers, slouchy jeans and funky tees has made it so much better.

Check after the jump for images from the event!

Stop and Enjoy the View

 Isn't it funny how many times you can drive past a place and never stop to check it out? Ollie and I always say that we would like to one day stop at this gorgeous lookout but always just keep on driving right past. Well, after an amazing weekend at the Squamish Music Fest a couple of weeks ago, we were still riding the high from an amazing weekend and took advantage of the empty highway at 6:30 in the morning to actually stop and take it in. I love moments like this, where you take the time to appreciate the beauty in the world without being in a hurry to get to the next place. Don't get me wrong -- we were actually in quite a big hurry, but we wanted to avoid the stress of the coming week for just a little bit longer. And I think it worked :)

After that amazing weekend with Denim & Supply and Hudson's Bay at Squamish Fest, I have been asked to co-host a really exciting event to celebrated the launch of Avicii's new single! I will be co-hosting alongside Justin from Walking, Talking Style and DJ Flipout and it really is going to be so much fun! I would really love if you would come and check it out this Saturday, August 23rd from 2-4 pm at the Bay downtown. Check the invite below for the address. There are going to be a ton of fun prizes and even the chance to be a part of Avicii's album teaser! How cool is that? I hope to see you there! 
Thanks so much for visiting!

Hot Hot Nights

These photos are transporting me right back to the hot hot nights and gorgeous sunsets of Mexico. These are some of my favorite photos from the trip and I was dying to share them with you. It has only been 3 weeks since we were there but it feels like months already. We have been so busy ever since we got back that we haven't had time to soak it in and reflect. I really can't complain though, lots of amazing and exciting things are happening right now and I'm really looking forward to the future of Styling My Life. I've actually decided to focus a little more of my time to this blog (by cutting back on my other work) and I'm so happy that I'm finally able to do this. Thank you so much for all of your support and for following along on my journeys! I truly couldn't be doing this if you didn't check in on what we've been up to.

One thing that I'm super excited for is an event this weekend with Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren/Avicii that I will be hosting alongside DJ Flipout on August 23rd from 2-4pm. It will be held at Hudson's Bay in Downtown Vancouver and I really hope that you can all make it! There will be a lot of prizes and giveaways and, of course, amazing clothes from Denim & Supply. I will have more details on it tomorrow, but I hope you will mark your calendars with the date for this weekend! xoxo

Fall is coming up so quick and although I would like to avoid it as much as the next person, I am getting more than a teeny bit excited about fall fashion. I'm not quite comfortable shopping for the actual clothes just yet, but I'm always excited about accessories. These are the easiest things to transition into fall and I love combining booties with summer dresses during this in-between time where almost anything goes. This window is so small in Vancouver that we have to jump on it the second it arrives -- and I'm pretty sure it's already here! Above are some of my fav items from Shopbop that I wouldn't mind getting my hands on. Doesn't it make you a bit excited for fall as well? Time to get shopping. xoxo
