Club Monaco top, Aritzia wool pleated skirt, Zara sneakers and bag and H&M sweater/scarf

Isn't mixing grey's fun...I think so!!! I love using the same colour palette but different shades to create a minimal yet unique and definitely not boring look. This skirt is another one of the those new pieces that I said I would show you and finally, here it is. I love this skirt and you know me, I am not one of wear skirts much but this thick wool pleated skirt had me from the first time I saw it. Obviously my favourite way to wear it is with sneakers but I have worn it with heels as well and it looks great with that too.

Along with the skirt I wore this wrap top from Club Monaco that I got a while back (in the summer time) which has been fun because of the wrap and being able to wear it different ways, see this post here and how I wore it, it's completely different.

Anyways, wearing all grey is a great way for someone who likes minimalism and keeping this simple and basic too have some fun and experiment a bit. Also with the scarf/sweater, but like I said in my last post, more on that later!!!

Happy Sunday morning. I am enjoying this cloudy morning a lot. I woke up early on my own, made coffee, drank some water, put on some candles and tried a beginners yoga class on youtube. Probably not the best way to try yoga but it's better then nothing.

I really want to start being healthier and I know I say this a lot but it's because I find it so hard to stay focused and determined to exercise and eat only healthy foods. But I am not getting any younger so I need to start taking better care of my body. I don't have the same metabolism I did when I was younger and could eat whatever I wanted and do nothing without gaining a pound...Now it's another story.

Especially since I had my knee injury last year, the struggle has been real, since I was off my feet for about 6 months, of course I gained weight and loss a lot of strength and energy I had before which has been difficult to get back. But I really do want to try. I think one thing I need is a partner to do it with me, to make me go on runs with them and do all sorts of activities with. I have a hard time convincing myself so I think another person would be able to get me out more often.

So if anyone reading this lives in the Vancouver and wants to be my exercise buddy then holla at me!!!

But about the outfit above...I was happy that I was able to get these pants on cause last time I tried it did not work so YAY. But it was a tight fit, I could still be a bit smaller and it would be better. But you know I love black on black and when you mix black materials like with leather, it looks so good. Also I love the look of leather and denim together, very cool!!! Also the scarf is not actually a scarf but more on that later, I am making a post about it so stay tuned!!

As you know, my parents were out visiting for September long weekend. We had such a great time and I wish they could have stayed longer but we had a lot of fun and kept busy with adventures for the 4 days they were here.

They drove all the way from home which is in Manitoba so that is a good 2 day trip but it was so nice to have a car to get around in while they were here. So my boyfriend took on the task of being the driver so we could show them around. We took them to all of our favourite places like Whytecliff Park, Whistler and Victoria on Vancouver Island.

They got here on a Thursday evening so we just ate and chilled then on Friday we took is easy and strolled around the city, shopping around and eating. We drove to Whytecliff Park in the evening for a little walk and good views before heading to dinner in Horseshoe Bay at one of the great seafood places alone there. We ate at Trolls and the fish and chips there is amazing, literally SOO GOOD!! Then we walked around there as well and spied on some seals...seals are so cute!!

Saturday is headed to Whistler on the Sea-to-Sky highways making stops along the way at all the best places like Shannon Falls and Brandywine Falls. We hung outing Whistler for a good part of the afternoon just relaxing and walking around. On the way home we stopped at another falls which I had not been too and I don't think it's as popular but it should be cause it was beautiful. It's called Alexander Falls and it is super easy to get too so I would recommend paying it a visit!!

Sunday morning was relaxing just around home and a little breakfast near by but in the afternoon we made our way onto the ferry to Vancouver Island. My parents had not been to Victoria since their honeymoon so I though it would be fun to bring them back there. We had great time especially at our favourite location there, Fisherman's Warf, which is a house boat area where there is lots of good food and tons of seals up close. The house boats there are so cute, it makes me want one. This is another spot I would recommend. 

Monday was a very cold cloudy day so we stayed in Vancouver, drove around Stanley Park, played games at home and went out for a nice meal but they left on Tuesday morning. It is always hard to say goodbye but we had a great time together and I already have to next trip home booked for the end of October so I will see my parents and lots of my family again soon!!!
