When summer arrives there comes a point when I can no longer get away with wearing stockings with all my dresses and skirts… my legs are still so white that they will practically blind people. That is when I say hello to my favourite warm weather transitional piece; white pants!
I love u-pick farms and lucky for me there are actually plenty of them around the Vancouver lower mainland area. It makes for a fun day out in the country, the farms usually sell delicious ice cream and other treats and you come home with more juicy berries than you know what to do with at an awesome price.
The Off the shoulder neckline is back. It seems plenty of trends are on a 2 year cycle at the moment, but I’m glad to see this one back. Off the shoulder necklines have been the staple music festival piece this spring, but this trend goes way beyond the festivals, it stretches from casual boho chic to sultry glamour. It gives that flirty extra wink of skin without the (often trashy) plunging neckline. I’m not one to jump on trends, I just follow what captures my attention and this is a style that I want in my wardrobe right now.
Heading out rain, shine or cloud is always a good idea and sometimes I need a reminder of this. Its so easy to stare out the window, take one look at the solid grey cloud coverage and decide that staying on the lounge with a big bowl of popcorn is a far better idea. But clouds can make for some fun and dramatic photos…
I got given a kitchen torch for my birthday… naturally I now want to set EVERYTHING on
I needed an excuse to use my new toy and making crème brûlée was just too obvious, so I sat pondering my options and scanning the kitchen shelves. I had graham crackers, I had chocolate, I had vodka… AHA! all I needed was marshmallows and I was on my way to a S’mores martini.
I know you have all seen this outfit before, but I just love stealing my boyfriends pants, and his belt, and his watch… yeah ok so I basically just raid his half of the wardrobe. And if you don’t currently borrow your mans clothes then I highly suggest you give it a try… your outfit options just doubled.
