I was waiting to post this look, mostly because these were my last photos to put up from Vancouver. Now that reading week is over, and classes have resumed, I am totally wishing I was back in Vancouver for a slightly extended vacation. Oh well, once things get rolling again I’ll be too stressed with due dates to dream of getting away from Edmonton.
It was a really overcast day when I shot these photos, and unlike many others, I really like rainy, cloudy days. There is no better time to stay in and get things done (napping included) than a day like that. It’s just nice how the world seems to slow down a little bit when it rains, amongst our hectic lives in the city. So, while everyone is feeling gloomy, I am feeling totally refreshed and getting ready for sunny days by being totally productive on the not-so-sunny ones.

Oak + Fort
My trip to Vancouver has been absolutely amazing. Enjoying a few days out of town with some great friends was one of the best starts to my reading week – and I couldn’t be happier right now.
I am just about to get on my flight back home, and back to reality. I am making sure to enjoy the last few minutes of my Vancouver trip by sipping on a (well-deserved) Starbucks latte while I wait for my flight home to begin boarding.
I took these photos in gastown yesterday during a relaxed day of shopping. I made sure to stop by the Oak + Fort in gastown, and snagged some great accessories and an amazing new shirt that will be perfect for Spring! The sun was shining, and although it felt warmer than Edmonton, I may have overestimated the spring vibes I was getting that morning. Regardless of the chill in the air, I really enjoyed donning a lighter outfit. We are slowly inching towards Spring across Canada, and so far Vancouver has been the warmest yet!
I kept this look fairly pale, and opted to roll up my pants for a sunny, cropped look. I have been loving my new slate-blue cardigan from Club Monaco, which is brand new to their Spring collection. It was the perfect pairing with my shoes that have such fun green laces. I got some awesome new bracelets from Brandy Melville downtown that I am in love with, and thought they were a great match for my gold Michael Kors watch! Topping it all off was an amazing anorak – which was absolutely essential given the chilly breeze breaking its way into our sunny day. It was just totally relaxed and comfortable, which was perfect for a day out shopping in such a chic neighbourhood with my close friends.
Anyways, It looks as though I am about to board my flight back to Edmonton – See you soon!
