Shorts and Blazer


I hope you've had a wonderful Thursday! I was inside my cubicle at work, thinking that it was cold and raining outside -- and then when I left the building after work, I was pleasantly surprised by a glorious evening! I love that! Even the weather channel was predicting rain all day. I think Mother Nature knew we'd had enough rain in Vancouver and thought she'd give us a little treat :)

We thought we would go down to the water to take a couple of photos as the sun was setting. We haven't been down there in a few weeks and it has definitely gotten busier. I love Kits beach in the summer. There is always so much life and activity. Such a huge contrast to the winter.


In these photos, I'm wearing an outfit that I would typically wear when it gets a little warmer out. I love to wear shorts as much as I can possibly get away with, so wearing them with a blazer gives the look a touch of class. And, of course, the heels to make my legs look longer and slimmer (it's scary to break out the shorts for the first time!). Hopefully, I'll actually get some colour on my legs soon so that I don't blind you with them :)












I was wearing

Aritzia Blazer
Zara Shirt
Zara Shorts
Zara Shoes
Versace Sunglasses
Tiffany & Pyrrha Necklaces

Thank you so much for reading!
