A Day with the Bees


I'm so happy that it's a long weekend and it's absolutely gorgeous! Today, Ollie, Tarryl (my beautiful and talented friend from Tarryl M Jewellery) and I went to a bee farm to pick up some local honey. I've been having allergies for my first time this year and local honey is supposed to help with this. I like the idea of this as opposed to taking medicine everyday for it and I love honey, so it's win win! They even had pollen that is especially for curing your allergies, so we picked up some of that as well. Hopefully it works :)

Tomorrow is the solar eclipse, so we're going to try to get some photos of it. It's supposed to rain in Vancouver, so hopefully the weather for somewhere close will be clear. It would be such a shame to miss it! I hope you are lucky enough to see it wherever you are :)

For our trip to the bee farm, I wore a green maxi dress that I got from River Island. It's the comfiest thing in the world and I love that it's long enough in the torso for me. I always have a problem with elastic waists because they always hit too high on my body and don't look quite right -- somewhere between an empire and regular waist. Not hot. But, I ordered this one online because it looked like it was a little longer than usual, and it was! I love it!







I was wearing:

River Island Dress (find a similar one here)
Forever XXI Belt
Michael Kors Bag (newer version here)
Charlotte Russe Sandals (similar here)
Pyrrha Necklace
Versace Sunglasses
Tarryl M and XO Bella Bracelets
Kenneth Cole Watch (find one with rose gold here!)

Thanks so much for visiting!
