Blue Florals and Pink lips

I've been trying to incorporate more blue into my wardrobe, because I tend to buy a lot of pink dresses and I feel like blue is less cloying. I've also been trying to buy more dresses in darker colours but I find
that quite difficult, partly because I can't find them and partly because when you see a cute summer frock I mean really how can I resist. Summer dresses always win that battle.
I live in a country where we enjoy beautiful Summer weather for hmm about 2 months and then its back to rain the rest of the year so when I look at my closet and see that 80% is summer clothing I sometimes just want to migrate for Winter. Anyone else think of the next season even though you're in the middle of the current one? I do that A LOT.
On another note, I have to repurchase the lipstick I am wearing here. Its my absolute favourite MAC Girl about town, its super creamy so I went through it fast but I love it, even though it leaves a weird patchy stain when I take it off. I also want to try and find a lighter lip colour but I think it might be weird going from bold lips everyday to light lips, but I want to try so I think a makeup shopping day is in my future.

Hope you all have a lovely day. :)

Pink and Mustard

Oh I feel like I took these pictures so long ago. It was the a couple of weeks ago now, just when us Vancouverites were starting to get real warm weather. (Finally). I have been spending much of my free time outside and I love it. I was never that person who really enjoys Summer, but now that has completely changed. I love Summer, it is probably my favourite season. I just love the simplicity of it, and the smell, just yesterday I was at the beach and walking along the pier where the wild flowers are uh the smell is amazing. Its hard to explain but that smell of warm grass and salty air. I could just sit there for hours just enjoying everything. Although reapplying suncream gets annoying after a while, but us pale variety have to so as to not look like a lobster.
I love this dress, I think the shape is perfect and because it is thin straps it is perfect for those hot summer days. Also I have seriously been loving mustard and pink together. I would have never thought to pair the two but after seeing Marianne of Esme and the laneway wear it so well I had try it, and I think its a new favourite combo. :)
I'll keep it short today but I will be back soon. I have a couple of post lined up, just a matter of posting now. I'll see you soon. Happy Tuesday. :)


Im back, re inspired and ready for the next season. I took a break from the internet...well I still went online to find gorgeous new to me dresses. I thought my first post back should be of what has been going on the the last couple of months. The pictures seem stretched here...opps.

1. Wilfred my new Wisteria tree my absolute favourite...and yes I named a plane. 2. Mmm dessert for dinner, don't mind if I do. 3. Mongolian HotPot, perfect for and early spring storm. 4. My favourite road trip coffee. 5. Lilac oh they smelled so good. 6. Delicious sushi fest.


Last Wednesday I went strawberry picking and then flower shopping, I like how the flowers matched my dress. :)

Well I'll be back later this week and am excited. :)

New Things and Spring Dreams

I am so glad to leave March behind, it was a pretty rough month for me so good riddance. Any hoo I have bought many new dresses and they finally arrived. (I actually have a couple stuck in customs or are just taking their sweet time to get here). The weather was amazing over the weekend, on Sunday it was 19c which is pretty much our summer here on the WestCoast, but today its back to the normal overcast :( I can not wait for warm weather again, I even bought a Wisteria plant yesterday, I love Wisteria and I think it's totally going to be worth the up keep. :) DRESSESThe dress with the red roses was a custom made dress from Oh Sew Vintage and I absolutely adore it  I've worn already a few times since it arrived. I don't think anything can ever beat a 50s style cotton dress.
Can you spot Mr.Fred?
I bought this purse at the flea market, I don't think its vintage or anything but I love the look and it looked like it would keep things organized, I really dislike purses where everything is tumbling around on the inside. The best part was that it cost me $2.25. :) 
I bought a few more things but didn't take a photo but I had to show this Lighthouse that really is a bird house. Oh I love it, I love Lighthouses and I just couldn't pass this up :) I hope everyone is having a lovely start to April, and have plenty of Easter Chocolates. :)
