AMERICAN APPAREL crop-top TOPSHOP trousers ADIDAS sneakers URBAN OUTFITTERS backpack

I found this really cool crop-top from American Apparel and I just couldn't resist buying it. I love the geometric detail of the lines on the top and my absolute favourite thing about it is the back. This is going to be perfect for hot summer days and especially on my vacation where it's going to be super hot. I paired it with these white trousers and my mom's vintage ADIDAS sneakers to keep the look sporty. The necklace is from a store in Victoria which I can't remember the name of and I have no idea which brand it is… All I can remember is it's made by a Vancouver designer! I'm so excited that it's finally summer so I can whip out my summer clothes and enjoy the warm weather (well hopefully it'll be nice, with Vancouver weather you never know…). Also, can we talk about how my hair is FINALLY growing!! I'm not wearing extensions… Yeaup, that's right people that is my natural hair and it is getting longer.  No more painful, hair-pulling, annoying, such a hassle to maintain extensions for me! HALLELUJAH is all I have to say. If you guys would be interested in how I take care of my hair let me know and I'll either make a YouTube video or write a blog post about it. In the mean time, I'm going to go thank the Hair Gods for this bloody miracle.

My mom's birthday gift was taking her to Victoria for a day, since I knew she wanted to go back for a while. I think the last time we went was 2 years ago so it was nice to finally have the chance to go back and enjoy a beautiful sunny day there. Our ferry left at 7 and we got there at around 8:30 so we had the entire day to relax. We started by going to the Butchart Gardens which had a beautiful display of different types of flowers and plants. We then went to downtown Victoria where we walked around and had some lunch. We ended the day by visiting a beach in Sidney and going for a nice walk there and then we headed back home. Overall I had such a relaxing day with my mom and I hope to go back soon!

Photoshoot with Vera Wilde: Part 2

The second look for my shoot with Vera was mainly focused on the back of this gorgeous dress. I am in love with the open back and how this dress can make a statement by itself, hence why I didn't accessorize at all with this outfit (other then the flower crowns). I kept with the grunge vibe from the first look but toned it down a bit to make this look feel a bit more effortlessly grunge. We shot in parts of Gastown in Vancouver which was the perfect setting for these photographs with the whole grunge feel and all. What more can I say... Once again extremely happy with these photos, Vera is an amazing photographer!!

Photoshoot with Vera Wilde: Part 1

UNIF dress SABOSKIRT bralette CLAIRE'S choker ANTHROPOLOGIE necklace DR.MARTENS boots FOREVER 21&TOPSHOP flower crowns

Last week I had the pleasure of working with the extremely talented Vera Wilde. I came across her photography through another blogger's blog and I instantly knew I had to shoot with her. Her photographs exude an ethereal feel that leaves you breathless and in awe of the style. Make sure you check out her Facebook page and Blog!

This was my first look for my shoot with Vera. I recently purchased this UNIF dress from LUNA B. as it was on sale for a pretty good price (considering how pricy UNIF can be..). I love how this dress has a grunge feel to it but in a pretty way with the white mesh material. I think this dress will be perfect for the hot summer days to come so I can wear my bralettes underneath without being too revealing. My goal with this outfit was to look like an abandoned grunge doll that was looking for a home (I think I accomplished that?). I love the contrast of the white dress with the dark flower crown and boots. 

Overall I am so pleased with the outcome of these photographs and look forward to working with Vera in the future! BIG THANK YOU to Lakeisha McNeill for doing my hair and makeup, she is one talented lady who always gets me amazing results.

TOPMAN leather jacket WILFRED FREE overalls TOPSHOP crop-top DR.MARTENS boots CLAIRE'S choker OAK + FORT necklaces MARC JACOBS bag

Yesterday was my mom's birthday so I spent the entire day with her. We started off our day by visiting Science World since we haven't been in a long time. They changed some things around but it's just as I remembered it from when I was younger, definitely re-lived some childhood memories. We walked along the seawall for a little since it was a beautiful day (although I was a little warm in my leather jacket in the sun, but hey I made a commitment to wear it so..!). Then we went and watched Maleficent since my mom wanted to watch it for a while and I really enjoyed it. Angelina Jolie is incredibly beautiful and a wonderful actress, definitely a really cute movie! We ended the day with dinner at the Hart House Restaurant where I enjoyed the most delicious duck breast I've ever had. I had a really fun day catching up with my mom and I hope she enjoyed it too! She gets more and more beautiful with age, I swear!
