The PJ Shirt

 Isn't it such a tease when the sun comes out for 3 days and then it's back to winter weather? Not that I'm complaining about these beautiful sunny days, but now it's back to winter coats, long pants and boots. Oh, and umbrellas... So these photos clearly weren't taken today, but rather on the beautiful weekend that I am now missing so much. But luckily, it's a long weekend for Easter and I can't wait! There's always a bright side to everything, isn't there?

This shirt is another one that I "borrowed" from Ollie's closet and I just love the pajamas feel of it. It's just as comfy as pjs too, so it's really the best shirt ever! I'm pretty obsessed with this Alexander Wang Romper, so anything that recreates that pj look is a winner in my books. Now I just need to find some matching shorts!

Hello Sunshine!

 Isn't it just glorious? I feel like a whole new woman! This was the first weekend that I was able to wear shorts for an entire day and I couldn't be happier. We took advantage of the sunshine and went for a nice bike ride along the seawall to soak it in, then had lunch on a patio. I just love patio season and it has breathed new life into me. I feel so inspired and motivated to take on the day. Except maybe not this morning -- it was Monday after all :)

I was wearing:

H&M Shirt
Aritzia Tank
H&M Sunglasses 
Rebecca Minkoff Bag

Thanks so much for visiting!

VFW Day 6

I can't believe I am so behind in my Vancouver Fashion Week posting! This is the last set of photos that I have from this season, although there was a seventh day as well. Make sure to check out the photos from it here!

My feet were killing me by this day so I decided to go with my Isabel Marant sneakers to be casual and comfy. I was so happy with my choice because my feet didn't even bother me for one second on this day! Plus, it was so gorgeous out, I thought I would take advantage and wear a super short mini to give the legs some sun. In the end, it was absolutely freezing, but now that's all past history because today is soooo beautiful outside. I'm going to get some exercise and take as much advantage of this beautiful weather while I can! 

Make sure to check out the photos from the shows after the jump!

Inspiration

 We all find inspiration in different places -- whether it's from art, nature, architecture, fashion or the millions of other sources; it's always so important to find out what that is for us. On any given day, I can find inspiration from the most random of things but on this particular day, I found it in the beauty that is Vancouver weather. It's true, I usually complain about our rainy days, but last Sunday we had the most amazingly unpredictable day. We ran outside as soon as we saw a stunning rainbow and decided to shoot the clothes I had just received from Denim & Supply and was in the middle of trying on. The clouds were moving so quickly -- going from bright, sunny and warm to dark, cloudy and raining. It was actually near impossible to shoot because the light was so extreme from one end to the other, but we were both just laughing and trying our best to get the shot. My very favorite is actually the last photo in this post because the rain looks so magical against the sun.

It turns out that I was quite lucky I was in the middle of trying on these Denim & Supply clothes because I absolutely love them and am so happy that I was able to capture them on this day. I love a good ripped jean and I think these ones are the ultimate. How amazing is the zipper detail within the rips? So badass. And don't even get me started on the jacket. It really can't get much better than a leopard print bomber. Especially in black and white. A couple of Spring staples have just been checked off the list.

I'm so happy to be teaming up with Denim and Supply by Ralph Lauren to show you the new Spring line which is now available at Hudson's Bay. Make sure to check out B Insider for your chance to win a $1000 Denim & Supply wardrobe!

Ampersand

Happy Sunday! I hope you had an amazing weekend. Sorry for the short blog silence, but I was pretty sick for the last couple of days. I don't know what it is about this year, but I've already been sick like 3 times. That's all of my sick days used up within the first quarter of the year and I swear it just keeps getting worse every time. Does anyone else feel the same way? I felt like a little kid this time with one of those 24 hour stomach flus that just totally wipes you out. No fun at all. I hope you all avoid this one.

But on to super fun things -- clothes! I bought this top from the Obviously Chic pop-up last week and I just love it. They run quite small so make sure to purchase a size up. As long as you do that you'll be super happy with it. Mine is a size large and I'm 5'9" so you can judge by that. Another new item is this perfect white blazer from Sheinside. I've been eyeing their low-priced trendy pieces for quite a while now and am so happy with the quality and fit. It arrived to my house at a reasonable speed as well, so I'll definitely be using this site a lot in the future. Hello new summer wardrobe!

March Looks

Happy April! I just love the month of April because this is when the real Spring starts. We have trees full of blossoms and that freezing bite is no longer in the air. Tonight I went out with a lighter jacket on and was actually fine! I do this quite often anyways, but tonight I wasn't immediately regretting my decision, so that's a good thing. This is my favorite season for fashion and I can't wait to shed the winter layers! So many possibilities...

I hope you liked my looks from March. Do you have a favorite?

VFW Day 5

Day five of Vancouver Fashion Week was perhaps my favorite of them all because I got to wear this gorgeous skirt and top by Nina Tan. The designer, Stephanie, had presented on Day 2 of VFW, and I instantly fell in love with this look. The skirt had been worn with a different top, but I thought they looked so adorable together that I couldn't resist. It was pouring rain on this day, so Jess and I used the lobby of the oh so gorgeous Opus Hotel to snap a couple of shots. 

Another reason this day was my favorite was because two of my fave designers presented on this day. Can you guess which ones they are?
