boutiques of johnson street

Last week I had the greatest time with one of my best friends in the beautiful Victoria. A mini-vacation from the distractions of work (and life in general), we stayed for two nights in the Grand Pacific Hotel and spent our days shopping, eating, and relaxing. In addition to its iconic harbour views, Victoria has some pretty amazing shopping. We hit up Johnson Street which is home to some of the cutest tucked-away boutiques with local and one of a kind designers. With summer sales every where we looked, our wallets were soon feeling light - and, in addition to my other wonderful purchases, I finally said hello to my first pair of J Brands!

  2. Oh my God. I'm so jealous! I really love the trench-coat you got (: Victoria looks so beautiful, I only went there once, and all I remember is we went to the Butchart Gardens. The shopping there looks amazing!

  11. All of those stores look so cute! I would just love to be able to go shopping there just from seeing these pics. I really like your purchases too. Jeans are a must for me. The shorts are so cute with the bow and the print of the jumper is so pretty. My favorite thing of all is the jacket!
