Sun-Kissed

What a beautiful weekend! We spent the entire time in Vancouver and it turned out to be the perfect staycation. These photos are from Saturday.
We spent the entire day on our bikes -- riding around Granville Island, through Yaletown, English Bay and the Seawall, where we took a nice 2 hour break at Third Beach to go for a swim and work on our tans. Then, back on the bikes to Tap & Barrel for dinner. I just got a new bike this week (as you may have seen on Instagram) and am so loving taking advantage of all the beautiful weather we're having. I'm so glad that Ollie convinced me to upgrade to a better bike so that I actually want to ride it.

As for the outfit: I knew it was going to be a super hot day and that we would be outside the entire time, so I wanted to wear as few clothes as possible. Mission accomplished?  But actually, this black top proved to be pretty scorching once the sun hit it, so I spent most of the bike ride in my bikini top. I think I'm going to have to get this same crop in a lighter colour so that it is more summer friendly -- I just love it so much. The shorts are a light and flowy material, so they were perfect for the heat and I really like the look of the high-waisted shorts with the bikini top, so it's win-win!

How was your weekend? I hope you had the chance to take advantage of this beautiful weather as well!


I was wearing:

Zara Bikini
American Apparel Top
Urban Outfitters Shorts
H&M Bag
Random Stone and Wood Bracelets
Tiffany, Pyrrha, and La Dama Necklaces
