Pop of Pink

One of my favorite things about this time of year is the beautiful sight of cherry blossom trees blooming all around the city. The delicate pink petals floating throughout the air paint Vancouver in a wash of romance.

It’s a shame that they only last for a few weeks, but I suppose that’s what makes them so special and celebrated. Their fleeting nature adds weight to their beauty and reverence.

Experimented in shooting with my Nikon 55-200 mm camera lens, which I barely ever use due to neglectful laziness.

My Fair Lady

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.

Layered Silks

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.

Stepped into Starbucks for my daily fix to discover that it was their 20th birthday! I believe this was only specific to the location though (not brand-wide).

To celebrate, they gave away little take home bags of their tribute blend coffee.

If you follow by blog, you’ll know it’s not often that I’ll don a pant but I just couldn’t resist this rich color and the exquisite fit.

Vancouver Coal Harbor

It’s pretty rare to catch a sunny day in Vancouver these days, so I felt the urgent need to take advantage when the clouds finally relented, letting us have a peek of summer weather.

I hopped over to Coal Harbor for a quick visit and a brain break- over the past little while I’ve been immensely busy with an animated commercial that I’m working on. Despite my best efforts however, the project is a little behind with a copious amount of work left.

Why is it that production schedules never go according to plan??

I also can’t wait until all the gloom passes and summer finally hits. I am definitely a summer girl. It’s been my favourite season ever since I could remember.

There’s something in the air that just buzzes and hums, it gives me an extra surge of energy to do… stuff. To go out, meet with friends, get a drink, whatever. Winter just makes me want to stockpile food and hibernate forever alone.

But honestly, I’m really excited for the first few days we make it past 20 degrees. And patio dining. And ice-cream on those sweltering days. And hitting the beach. And summer blockbusters! And finding the perfect summer anthem on the radio :)

Can’t wait!
