Stubborn Love

In the last week, it feels as if nature is just been squeezing out sporadic periods of sunshine like squeezing out the last dainty drops of lemon juice from the wedge. (Oh look I'm doing that Vancouverite thing again talking about the weather. Well whaaddup I'm ownin' it).

The Lumineers concert was last Thursday and took place at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby. We were truly blessed by some good dry weather, which came into effect pre-emptively in the mid-afternoon. After a brief costume change after work, voila, I transformed into a concert bo-ho with my trusty Hipster Lion (if you haven't met him, he made his first appearance on my birthday as a honorary Leo).

Fall into Autumn

Usually I am not a grey kind of gal, but lately I am definitely in the mood for all shades of grey (um not at all what you are thinking about). Not too long ago, I popped into the new-ish pop-up boutique Loft 82 and came out with a lovely birthday present for myself =) This skirt is perfect for a vertically-challenged girl, showing off a little legs in the front but not at all cutting off the elongated visual. Paired with maroon heels, I break the rule of pairing warm colours with only its own kind. Maroon and grey? Sounds like a foreshadow of a stylish fall lineup as we transition out of summer.

Perhaps the busy life has caught up to me. Lately all I want to do is curl up on my (new) couch and nap. I just bought a nice, long white couch and is currently working on the decor the compliment it. It is evident that how an individual lays out their place reflects their personality and mindset. In my case, I much rather prefer the simple neutrals and the earthy tones - a comfortable sanctuary to come home to everyday. Someone said the other day, and I paraphrase, "no matter where you are, it's the same body, same mind. It's just the situations that are different." If you can maintain a strong, stable spirit and mindset, you can do anything.

Have a great week!

P.S. Thanks to my man for taking these shots. I really think his photography skills are getting pretty awesome!

Pink Mink

This is me paying one final tribute to my white denim DIY shorts as the season passes by. Too soon, but we had a good run. It's been chilly, but not cold enough for a real jacket. So for a stroll and a quick bite at the infamous Nero Waffles, I threw on this light pink leopard scarf to keep warm and also to tie the fuschia and white together. There's no such thing as too much pink in my books. Just some extra sweetness for the road in case the sky gets a bit dim.
