Hello friends!

Last weekend I took a little trip to Vancouver Island. I haven’t seen my best friend since February, and it’s sad that even in Canada, we’re so far apart. On our to-do list? China town, B.C. Parliament buildings, Market Square Flea Market, Green Cuisine ( AMAZING VEGAN BUFFET with food that will convert you) , Baggins Shoes (too many Vans & Converse — in the best way) and an awkward encounter with a flower truck driver. Turns out, he didn’t want to join our photos.  Thankfully, I managed to snap a beautiful pic before he sped off.

The next day, we also attended Victoria Pride. For the event, sidewalks around town were permanently painted rainbow. Awesome.

When these photos were taken, it was also 33 Celsius. Essentially, this makes putting together blog looks far more difficult than usual (I say that a lot — but I prefer cold-ish weather). Since I only brought a backpack to Victoria, I also had to bring lightweight pieces that could translate from day – to – night. Pre layered skirts and dresses are my go-to.

Of course, the Vince slip ons made another appearance. No surprise there.

See you next week! Let me know if you’ve ever been to Vancouver Island — if you haven’t, you’re missing out <3. Also: Whipped Cream is bomb and she’s from Vancouver Island. Reason enough to go :).
