still standing

August long weekend in Kelowna wasn't at all how I pictured it, but then again nothing ever really is. It was filled with boozing, clubbing, and sloppy drunks. I even lost my shoes on the third night, apparently you can't get into clubs without shoes. Which would have been a bummer, but I think we can all agree the shoes I bought [pictured above] were well worth the trouble. & I never would have found them if it wasn't for my desperate ass running into some random boutique desperate to buy footware so I could get into the festival. Can sure cross a lot of stuff off my bucket list after that weekend.

Stripes and denim

I've been crazy busy the last week, between planning the move to vic, spending time with my family visiting from Hawaii, and work, I've had no time for blogging. But alas, I took some pictures and have ten seconds to write. I went shopping for housing supplies today, my roommates were MIA so I ended up buying up half the housing aisle. All that's left is a stop at IKEA for furniture.

Why do fools fall in love?

I officially signed my house for next year today! It's nothing short of amazing: all hardwood floors, granite counter tops, our own patio with a bbq, chandelier in the living room, words can't describe how excited I'm getting. After stalking the house for hours and jotting down decorating ideas for every last inch of it I walked outside to see a parcel on my door stoop. I open it to find these lovely Bandolino shoes that I ordered months ago and totally forgot about. Is today my day or is it my day?

You been flying so high and flying so low

I finally understand the hype over American Apparel high waisted shorts. Oh hot damn, is the only way to describe them. Picked up some on a day-trip down to Seattle yesterday and might never take them off. Yes I know I'm a bit late to get on this trend, but better late than never.

When it comes to the summer month's comfort is the main priority, and nothing beats loose tops with shorts, so when I so kindly received this top in the mail from sugarlips I knew I'd have to put a summer twist on it. I paired it with my favorite linen summer-time shorts and some flats, although it would have gone lovely with my brown wooden heels I'm still kicking myself for forgetting them at my house in Hawaii. Living out of a suitcase is getting old very fast, half my wardrobe is in storage in Victoria, a third is in boxes at my parent's in Hawaii, and the rest is in three, very small, duffle bags. But somehow this look managed to come together nicely, I've got to say my absolute favorite part about this top was the opened shoulders and back, just enough to let the summer breeze in but still make any outfit look classy and put-together.

Queen of the Castle

Whew, it's been quite awhile since I lasted posted. But low and behold my tripod was dropped on my door step today. Lately I've been wearing these high wasted shorts with everything, I feel they tie together any outfit, although with summer on the rise I shall soon be sporting all the lace and chiffon skirts I bought during winter, when the hot days were just a dream. Well I'm off to work, not like this was supposed to be my day off or anything, thanks boss.

ol' cowboy boots and denim

Off to a good ol' canadian hoe down, aka a cowboy themed barn party. Check-out the gems [vintage leather cowboy boots] I found in my grandma's basement, apparently they were my mum's when she was my age.

I'm not so sure cow gals wear sheer flowey tops and feather hair extentions, but hell I'm a mod-cowgirl and I ain't wearin no plaid. I promise I'll post photos from the party later on tomorow! Once I've recovered from the massive hangover I'm bound to have.

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!
