blush blouse



During my move to Vancouver this month, I went through my entire closet and purged. It felt really great to only keep what I loved and donate the rest. At the same time, I was also able to 'shop my own closet' and find pieces that I'd completely forgotten about (or thought looked terrible on me, but actually suit my style now). So when I discovered this blouse tucked away from a few years ago, I knew I had to style it again for Spring. This light blush colour is one of my favourites, and I love the simple collar embellishment. So much so, that I opted out of wearing any jewellery at all (a first)! So don't be afraid, take a look at some of your closet items from past seasons and re-style them for Spring. I dare you. Happy Tuesday! xo

new perspectives

I've been living in the heart of Vancouver for a week now, and I've already opened my eyes to the incredible possibilities that the city has to offer. Between simple walks to my favourite coffee shops, having brunch with creative minds, and going through ridiculous antics and long life-conversations with my roommate, I feel as though I have a new perspective on where I'm headed. Things recently have been thrown a little off balance, but I'm seeing it as a way to build strength and determination to get to where I want to be.

Speaking of new perspectives, I recently worked with PRSPECTV by Pierce, an up-and-coming photographer in Vancouver with a seriously cool vibe and amazing talent behind the lens. I put together this outfit to reflect my style recently, pieces that I feel great in and can take me from day-to-night (also recreating this look from Instagram). We went with a balance of hard and soft, shooting in Gastown, and I love how the photos turned out. Check out his work and have an amazing weekend everyone. xo
