Sunny Vancouver


Vancouver in the sunshine is a completely different world. Not just from the bitterly windy other coast, but the rainy city itself in mid February. Since my arrival the weather has been undeniably gorgeous. What I remember as a quiet city on a wet Monday morning has seemingly increased tenfold in population. Fighting the jet-lag we went for a stroll along the Seawall yesterday to soak up some Vitamin D. My skin is a pretty ghostly shade of white, but even already my freckles are starting to burst through. So many people were out tanning on the beach & in the park. I can't wait to take a picnic & a book to put in an afternoon there myself. 

As always on a sunny day, I wanted as much colour as possible. The base of my outfit was one of my all-time favourite vintage pieces - my striped Adrienne Vittadini skirt. I paired it with a mint crop top from American Apparel, atop a white bandeau, & accessorized with my pastel yellow satchel, gold/white bangle & sandals, & a hand-made necklace (black braided with pastel baubles). Classic Ray Ban wayfarers to top it off. Simple look for a Summery day :)








I was wearing:
Striped Skirt - Vintage, Adrienne Vittadini
Mint Crop Top - American Apparel
Necklace - Handmade by my Auntie
Yellow Satchel - H&M
Bangle - H&M
Sandals - Aldo
Wayfarers - Ray Ban
