A River Runs Through It..........

Prior to my trip out west, I was feeling a bit uninspired by my wardrobe!!! And since I live in Saskatchewan, which has a very limited shopping scene I felt like there was really nothing I could do about it!! But alas, the streets of Vancouver have again replenished my closet, so you can expect lots of exciting new photo shoots!! I bought this cute little sun dress at United Colors of Bennetton for a super great price and I have already gotten so much use out of it!! 

These photos were taken at one of our picnic stops!! Since Canada and especially Saskatchewan are so vast, most people are accustomed to driving long distances. And as such, we have also come up with ways to enjoy these long distances. One of the ways our family likes to combat the long hours of driving is with picnic stops. Since Canada has so many scenic places to stop, we tried to stop at least once a day for picnic so that we could thoroughly enjoy the scenery. Picnics are not only great beacuse they give you a chance to get up and walk around, but also pic-nick food is often way better than any of the fast food options in the small towns we drove through!! Plus, I had a few opportunities to take some photos which is where these photos were taken!! Do you ever stop for picicks on road trips!! 

Jean Jacket: Gap
Dress: United Colors of Benetton
Shoes: Repetto

Also, I just wanted to thank my mom and dad for the wonderful trip. I am sure they never imagined that they would still be taking family trips with their almost 30 year old children. Nevertheless, we had an amazing time and it is so great to have parents like you!!

Beach Getaway!

Dominic and I have started packing for our little beach getaway to Mexico next week!! And since it is going to be about 36 degrees celcius every day, I am trying to pack super light!! This is what I hope to be wearing for the majority of our trip!! And although I still have not purchased a Panama hat, my research tells me that there are an abundance of Panama hats for sale in Mexico, which obviously I am looking forward to!!

Song of the Week: The Deep Dark Woods

I can't seem to get enough of the Deep Dark Woods!! Home grown in my home province of Saskatchwan, the Deep Dark Woods are steadily gaining popularity throughout North America!! I for one, am a fan and I thought I would like to share their unique sound with you as it is kind of like you get a little taste of Saskatchewan!!! Make sure to check out all of their albums which I am totally loving!

Mountain Casual....

We are finally back from our little adventure out West. And although we had a wonderful time visiting our family and friends, I didn't end up taking that many photos!! I did have good intentions of taking as many outfit photos as I could, but somehow the time just slipped away as we were having such a good time!! Does that ever happen to you??? Anyways, I did manage to take a few outfit shots, so I will post what I have!!! 

These photos were taken in the Rocky Mountains somewhere in between B.C and Alberta! And although this is not the most glamorous of outfits, it was super comfortable for the 12 hour drive. I do like to be comfortable, as do most people, and I think that your style should never be compromised in the name of comfort!!! As such, I chose to wear jeans because they are super functional for getting in and out of the car. And to give the look a bit of an edge I wore pink jeans!!! I also wore a cardigan because when you are driving with other people in the car (there were six of us), there is always somebody too hot or too cold. So a cardigan allows you to adjust your heat by taking it off or putting it on!!! And finally Birkenstocks because they are obviously the most comfortable sandal out there and they can easily slip off in the car to get the perfect driving/sleeping position!!  What do you wear when travelling??

long shadows of july sun

I have to start off by saying that I am so sorry for not posting these past weeks but somehow time just got away on me!! But I guess those are the joys of having your own blog!!

These photos were taken on August 1st which was our 3rd wedding anniversary! I have to say that the past few years seemed to fly by as it seems like just yesterday we were in GDL getting married! Nevertheless, they have been the most wonderful years of my  life full of lots of laughter, happiness and adventure!!! To celebrate, Dominic and I made a delicious dinner on our charcoal bbq which was of course accompanied by a bottle of Prosseco while we watched the set on the beatiful prairie!!

Playsuit: BCBG
Sandals: Sam Edelman
Bracelets: Aldo Accessories

 P.S - We are currently on the West Coast of Canada (Vancouver and Victoria), so if I have some time I will definitley post some of the new clothes that I have been purchasing!!
