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.

Light my Sapphire

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.

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!

Chambray with Me

The ever present denim shirt trend keeps going, and I wanted to do a little twist on it for my own version. I knotted the bottom ends, and folded in my collar to pair up with a leather A-line skirt.

I also did something I very rarely ever do… wear lipstick!

my new watch

Went with a classic red lip, and finished off the look with my new watch that just came in.
