20 July 2011

just came to say hello


I'm baaaaack! After a long July hiatus, I finally have a few spare moments in my busy life to share some amazing material for my readers. Work has been especially time consuming, and when I'm not working I've been spending some great quality time with friends and family. The Vancouver summer has been such a let down this year, so whenever there's a moment of sunshine I try to embrace it. I ventured to a pretty location with amazing friend and photographer Kelly Swanson to capture a few photos. I fell in love with this dress at a small store in Penticton when I was up there over the long weekend. It's so easy to wear, and I have a secret love for anything with an open back. And did I mention my wedges? These babies are so comfortable and I've been wearing them with everything from shorts to pants to dresses. I love finding easy to wear heels - I need a little bit of height being only five feet tall! Thanks again to Kelly for the beautiful photos, and I hope you all have a happy Wednesday!
