Union Jack Jumper

I have always liked flag patterns. Especially the Union Jack. There is something so symmetrical and black red and blue about this flag.

Don't get me wrong, the maple leaf is not bad. But I think it's the fact that it lacks a little blue. It's just not edgy enough.

Since England is technically Canada's mother country, I don't feel too bad for embracing the flag of the Queen.

These bramble bushes can be so beautiful in a clear day like this.

This Union Jack jumper is actually a thin knit. Which I like, a good layering piece without adding too much bulk. Sometimes, it is a little insubstantial to keep warm. You can get it from Romwe.

Of course nothing a warm infinity scarf can't fix.

My Corona

No I am not talking about the sipping kind. Though, today would be the perfect day for one.

Last Thursday night to Friday, I went up to Squamish to visit Micheal. He was away for the annual BC Bike Race. The event is a world wide recognized single track mountain biking extravaganza. People from all a round the world pack up their things, and get embraced by the beautiful British Columbian wilderness.

I went to visit him during the Squamish day.

That is the logo he designed.

This is the station he manned.

It was a gorgeous day and as I walked around Brennan Park Recreation Centre, these guys caught my eyes.

Since I had the day to frolic around while he worked, I quickly turned those flowers into decoration.

They lasted a while, until finally welting to the unrelenting heat of the sun.

Sunny Disposition

Welcome summer, your timely arrival could not be more appreciated.

I have been going through some personal matters that have put me in moods that matched weathers prior to this glorious sunny day.

I remember years ago it would be quite hot beginning of June already. It would be shorts and sandals weather three before it's actually summer.

However, last year and now this year, spring has been more like fall. Rainy, gloomy and if it's ever sunny, it would feel like a crisp autumn day.

It's really warm outside right now and there is not a more beautiful place than Vancouver when it is sunny out.

I decided to reflect the beautiful sunny day in my outfit as well.

I stuck with various tones of yellow to establish a sunny disposition.

The rest of the accessories finishes the complete outfit.

I haven't worn feathers in awhile either. It feels nice to bring back the combo of hair accessories that I lived in last summer.

I hope nice days are here to stay from now on.

Have a good one, everybody.

Kiss of the Golden Sun

The weather gods have been extremely generous last week, until the weekend that is.

I still had enough time to go traipse around in my new maxi statement dress.

I have this dress in two colours.

I originally only knew of the dark version until I visited the websites that carried the dresses.

http://www.dollskill.com/unif-flounce-dress.html

http://www.karmaloop.com/product/219382

You can also get it here.

At the time, the dark version was only available in L, but the white version was available in all three sizes.

Knowing that the large may not fit as well as a medium and small I decided to order both dresses. The dark in a Large and the white in a Small and hoped for the best.

They both arrived super fast.

I am so glad I ordered them in both colours because even though they are the same dress, the colour difference dramatically changes the entire look.

I will do a side by side shoot in the future.

I love how this dress is short in the front, adding some sex appeal to a sweet print.

The only criticism I have is that I have to wear this dress with a belt. Perhaps it's the way it's cut, perhaps it's the shape of my body, if I don't cinch at the waist, the whole thing looks much more frumpy.

But my trusted flower belt from Gentille Alouette does the trick very well.

I also love clothing that takes on a life of their own when I move around.

The dress seem to be dancing with me.

The glow of the setting sun highlighting my outline makes my heart jump for the joy that it will be summer very soon.

That means, the dress can be worn without the accompaniment of these tights.

Who am I kidding, I will probably live in these tights through out summer.

Frolicking in Sunlight

April showers and May flowers they say. I hope they are right, we have been getting some extremely weird weather lately.

However, in all this erraticism we get beautiful peaks of sunlight that brightens the day.

Today, I will show you the perfect transition outfit. For unpredictable weather.

Last summer, while visiting my beautiful friend and shopping buddy in Toronto, I fell in love with these amazing Versace shades from the store she was working at Fashionably Yours.

Since she work there, I got these upside down orange shades for a steal.

I always trip people out when I wear them, they can't help but wanting to flip them over.

That's precisely why I love them so much.
Perfect for a day of frolicking in the sun.

Since it's not particularly that warm out yet, this leather jacket is the perfect outer wear. I am still amazed that I found it at Talize. Though it is not that evident in this photo, and sorry for forgetting to take photos of the back side, the fur trim looks like wings from the back.

If it gets warmer, a thin black cardigan will also do to cover up the outfit. Mine was from Aritzia awhile ago.

My favourite part of this outfit would have to be this tube dress.

From Gentille Alouette, it captures a sunny day perfectly. Light fabric, fun print with a touch of denim.

I like how all of the colours work really well together even though they are seemingly random pieces.

Finally it's warm enough to let a little more skin show.

Can't wait for more sunny days to come.

On a sunny day

Vancouver may not get very many of these, but when she does, she is the most beautiful city in the world.

This past weekend we were blessed with such amazing weather.

It's finally warm enough to frolic around sans coat.

I hope this Spring is not so rainy. Even though I wear colours all year round, it feels great to know that soon the city will also be matching.

I got this denim crop jacket a long time ago. I think it was from Guess.

At the time I was so excited to wear it, but it ended up being neglected in my closet. When I was looking for something to finish my outfit, this jacket did an amazing job.

Cropped jacket and high-waisted skirt help elongate the entire body.

It was actually even warm enough for me to not wear a jacket for a bit.

I really like this dress, especially after I hemmed it into a high low skirt by pinning the front portion. Very similar to how I hemmed this dress.

I wish I could stay out longer to enjoy the sun that day.
