Summer has always been my favourite season. It’s when I feel most alive, and have the most energy.
The long days and rich sunshine inspire me to seek out new adventures, explore and create lasting memories.
I guess that giddy excitement of upcoming summer break from school has never left me, even long after graduation.
Whenever I put this hat on, I instantly feel more elegant and lady-like.
I have always admired the spectacular hat game they have going on at the formal social gatherings in Europe.
Beautifully structured couture hats that are more like pieces of art than head gear… Kate Middleton must have the world’s most gorgeous accessories closet.
Sadly mine is just the basic black felt hat, but I do think it still adds that touch of lady.

An outfit for strolling through downtown.
I wore my navy silk dress layered with a deep plum silk blazer. It’s hard to see in the photo, but there is actually a lovely bird texture imprinted on the fabric.
Great day for walking along the water to Gastown, where I finally grabbed my new business cards! I love it when online businesses offer local pick up as an alternative to shipping, it’s faster and saves on cost too.

I am in love with the vibrant hue of this gem-toned dress. Such a rich color, and the cut-out gives it a unique shape.
To give this feminine dress a bit more edge, I added a hot coral lipstick and my cropped leather jacket.
