Summer time morning runs are my favourite. Now just because you’re going to get sweaty in these clothes doesn’t mean they should be any less stylish. I love to get a bit matchey with my workout clothes and have some fun with patterns and prints.

I actually do own these shoes, thats how this outfit came to life… now I think I need to go get the rest of this outfit. And just a quick FYI, most these items are currently on sale.

I also put together a few more of my favourite pieces that would make some good mix and match outfits.

Vancouver U-Pick: Strawberries at Krause Berry Farms

Vancouver U-pick: strawberry picking at Krause Berry Farms in Langley

I love u-pick farms and lucky for me there are actually plenty of them around the Vancouver lower mainland area.

5 Ways to Wear the Off The Shoulder Neckline

June 5, 2015

5 ways to wear the off the shoulder trend 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.
