Today Gordon and I went for a walk around the South End. We needed to get out of the house because it’s so sunny and beautiful outside! We went down by the train tracks and then into Point Pleasant Park; on our way back we stopped to pick up groceries for dinner tonight. Tonight’s menu will be spaghetti with salad on the side and garlic bread to top it off. yum!

Sorry these photos are so sunny. We’re trying to get better at taking outfit photos and now I’ll know for next time that shade works much better for capturing my outfit. Also, I’ve had this dress forever. I wear it when I want to be completely comfortable and free! Also, it looks like my hips don’t lie in these photos but I kinda love it. BAM.

Here’s a close up of my mug so you can see my glasses! I love ’em.

Cheers!

 Ah! I am have loving the weather here lately so when I heard it was going to be sunny again today I decided to walk down to this lovely little European nook on Hollis Street to take some outfit photos. I wore this outfit today in the anticipation of attending a board meeting on behalf of the Women’s Centre where I work. I wanted to present our views on an inappropriate article that was published at my university. Hopefully it went well and that the board members will see the light and be inspired to remove hateful and hurtful content in the newspaper.

All of that aside, I decided to post this outfit because of the shoes! I am loving nude shoes right now…they go with everything and they remind me of spring weather. They also make my legs look super long which can never be a bad thing. I’m now on the hunt for  good quality sandles–do you have any suggestions?

Hope you enjoy!

I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve posted an outfit! Yesterday the sun was shining and the birds were chirping so I thought I’d try my hand at some colour. I wore this outfit for a walk around Point Pleasant with my grrl Gab (check out her new layout!) and then a jaunt down to Cheese Curds located in Dartmouth which was a complete fiasco in a good way. It was definitely an experience and it was well worth it (I may do a seperate post on this restaurant soon!). Anyway it’s surprising how good I felt wearing colour yesterday–vibrant and alive! It’s been awhile since we’ve seen sun so I made the best of it.

Hope everyone is enjoying some sun too!

Oh my goodness, I’ve been away from this blog for quite a long time. It’s odd how fast time flies (especially around exam/holiday time). I’m currently back in BC for the holidays and today my family and I picked up my poppy from the airport. Afterwards we headed over to a family friend’s house for a delicious brunch that was presented so beautifully. I wish I had my camera to show you how lovely the entire spread looked.

Anyway, I wanted to update everyone on some of my winter goals which I’ve actually been trying to stick to. In terms of my wardrobe re-haul, I’ve been making some progress with sticking to my strict rules of choosing classic and well-cut pieces for my wardrobe that will last me for a while. Two new things that I bought are this jean jacket and these new boots which I felt will carry my through milder winter days as well as the Spring weather in Halifax. I love the ‘tougher’ look of the jean material paired with the leather and buckle.

Oh! I wanted to post this video from my boyfriend’s best friends band in Vancouver. They’re called “The River and The Road” and all I can say is…wow. I’ve been listening to them non-stop. Here is the video for ‘I Tried’ sung by Keenan Lawlor
