Lace and Wayfares

As of this afternoon, I'm officially a working girl complete with a lovely uniform that is not puke green this time! & in other news, I popped the cork on my very own wine. It's nothing fancy like my own vineyard or anything, just one of those home-wine kits I tested out last Summer, and after letting it sit in my Grandma's cellar all year I figured it was time to sample the goods. I must say it was damn good, better than I was expecting. Hell, with the alcohol prices in Canada I might take on a side job next year, making this shit and selling it to the unsuspecting freshman. The Lovely Blonde Alcohol Dealer! Just jokes, anyway off to bed. Hope your all off to a lovely week!

Lipstick Junkie

(Sunglasses- Aldo, Bodysuit- American Apparel, Red Quilted Purse- Vintage Monet, Shorts- Forever21, Shoes- Fioni)

Marilyn lips and striped bodysuits. Sunny rays on her porcelain skin. It's only the start of the beer by the pool and bike rides down to the sea. Bubblegum vodka on our cherry lips as we hop from pool to pool curtesy of the abandoned mansions, billionaires forgotten Hawaiian purchases. Tying ourselves to the pursuit of fun, a train plowing through all obstacles straight for the beaches.


I know, I know, my posting have been absolutely pathetic lately. But if you'd ever attempted to mold your grandma into your new photographer you'd see my dilemma. As if losing my roommate and best friend for the summer wasn't hard enough, I also lost my personal photographer. Thankfully my tripod should be turning up soon, every day that passes is making me regret not paying more for the overnight shipping, live and learn I guess. I promise I will have a ton of new looks up the minute my tripod comes in.

Center of Gravity

The countdown is on to the highlight of my summer. For those of you who don't know, aka the non-canadians up in here. Center of Gravity is EDC meets Coachella meets the Olympics. Ok, I'll admit that's moderately exaggerated. But it's half music and half sport, like Volleyball, Basketball, Wakeboarding, FMX, Freestyle Mountain Biking, Skateboarding, and BMX. As much as I claim I'm into it for the music and sports, the truth is the whole three days are basically a giant drunk tank. And the best part? It's the day after my nineteenth birthday, which means I'm officially legal in Canada. three legally smashed days by the beach, at concerts, and sleeping in our car. It's like heaven

This was what I wore to my interview today for the Chamber of Commerce position! As you can see, my favorite long single-strand pearl necklace is currently being used as a headband. It got tangled up in the rest of my necklaces while I was traveling, and I broke it trying to separate them, not impressed. Although seeing how good it looks as a headband does make me feel a bit better. Hope you all are enjoying the beginning days of summer, these truly are the best before it gets dreadfully hot.

Has it ever been a long day, drove half way across Canada to finally arrive in my Grandma's little town. These photos above were taken at a rest-stop in Kelowna. I just had to stop to check out the beach park, which for those of you who don't know is where Center of Gravity is being held! (I'll do a post about that later) The weather was insane, it literally went from a sunny gorgeous morning to snowing as we drove along the quoquitlam overpass. Hello, isn't it supposed to be summer time? I sure planned my outfit thinking it was, wearing my pastel orange pleated dress under a baggy tee made for the perfect comfy outfit. This would sustain the long ride alright, as for the snow, not so much.

may mood board

Inspired by Rogue Fox, I've decided to create a monthly mood board. For those of you who haven't heard of a mood board, it's a place to excite us for the months fashion. A bit late for May, but I've been busy with university and figured better late than never.

THE LATEST LOVES: neon pops, bodysuits, high-waisted anything and everything, lace, chiffon skirts, gold watches, and the prada inspired round sunnies.

Hello denim

(Denim vest- H&M, Mocassins- Minnetonka, Navy Pleated Dress- Urban Outfitters, Floral Clutch- Fossil)

Breaking out the denim, with a summer twist. The usual high wasted shorts, was replaced with my latest favorite vest from H&M. I'm not typically a fan of the whole vest trend, but this piece felt different. I loved being able to dress it down with Minnetonka's or just throw it over a swimsuit as a cover-up. Overall a summer essential!

Hot. Red. & Blue

The perfect mix of country and rock n' roll. Went on a little tour round the apple farm in Vernon today, they had samples of every apple product you could imagine, from sauces to fudge to slushies. Next we checked out the petting zoo at the back, not sure how apples and animals relate, but I guess it's all country. In case your just tuning in now, my roommate is from Vernon, and I'm from Hawaii, so this summer we decided to do a location swap for a couple weeks. First she came to Hawaii and did more than the typical tourists, and now its my turn to experience Vernon, which is slightly less exciting but nonetheless I'm getting the full Okanagan experience.

Soaking up every last ray of sun in my last day on the islands therefore I don't have any cute outfits to display, however I did capture some snap shots. Wish I could have taken some at the north shore but I forgot my camera! I will miss Hawaii, but as of tomorrow I'll be a small town girl for the summer.

Nothing says summer like chiffon and coral, the perfect outfit for my last day in Hawaii before I leave for Seattle. An entire day of traveling tomorrow, but the Seattle shopping should make it well worth it. Any shops I should check out while I'm down there?

Being back home for a week, I decided to take advantage of a house full of five girls and began digging through everyone's closets. My major find was these vintage Roberto Vianni boots in the back of my mum's closet, if only they weren't a size six and a half. I'm practically big foot with my size nine feet! As for the rest of the outfit, I paired my beach cover-up with a lace romper and my new Pandora leather bracelet for a practical chic look.

Back to Hawaii and Blogspot

After surviving a long cold year in Canada, it was great to slip into summer with this marilyn monroe inspired look. NARS red-orange lipstick ties the polka-dotted skirt and red sunglasses together and the bikini top gives the look a modern twist. All in all it set the tone for the day. Today, I took a trip down to Waikiki beach with one of my future roommates and browsed through the market place, pssst did I mention the 3 story forever21? That in itself is a reason to take a trip over to Hawaii. All the latest pastels, polkadots, and neon colors reminded me why I loved fashion in the first place. Which brings me to why I'm back here in the first place, everyone on lookbook and the store windows have rejuvenated my love for fashion. With school out of the way, my main focus is back to fashion, my blog, and lookbook. So be prepared for day to day updates. Enjoy!
