Noul oversized top (similar) and distressed boyfriend jeans (similar), H&M sandals, Monki bag and Necklace bought at a market

We had the best time in Tofino, relaxing eating amazing food and enjoying the beaches. I think it has become one of our favorite places and we can't wait to go again. The beaches there are so nice and it is awesome to sit on the rocks and watch the waves and surfers. Just thinking about it makes me want to leave right now and go there, but one more day of work then the weekend at least.

I have a friends birthday brunch to go to today. We are having crepes and I am so excited because she makes yummy crepes and I don't get them very often. I don't do a lot of cooking and when I do I stick to few recipes. I want to get more into cooking but I think it would help if I had a bigger kitchen. The kitchen we have right now is so small, so once we move then I will try to be more creative with my meals.....hopefully!!

These pictures were taken after an amazing day spent on the water in Tofino. My boyfriend and I had tried surfing for the first time and it was amazing. We had wanted to try it for a long time so when we had the chance we went for it. We had so much fun with the instructors and learning how to do it. We both got up on the boards right away and started catching the waves. After 3 hours in the water we still did not want to get out we had so much fun. I would say it is a new passion of ours so now we will have to think about going on surf trips. Have any of you tried surfing?

Anyways, after getting the wet suit off, I wanted to get in something easy so I threw on one of my favorite sweaters and my relaxed denim jeans with sandals. Super casual laid back and perfect for the moment and place!!!

Somewhere between Victoria and Tofino we stopped at a beach to eat the sandwiches we picked up. We sat on a log on the beach staring out to the ocean and cloudy skies and it was beautiful. We were lucky enough to see a mama otter and her 2 babies swimming around and they were so cute and fun to watch. There was also tons of beautiful rocks with lots of shells and stuff you would find on the sea bottom and it was a great place for photos, as you can see here. I was wearing my white jeans which I had to throw away after because I got chocolate all over them, haha. That is why white scares me because I will ruin it almost immediately. But it turned out to be the perfect outfit for the scenery, matching the almost white background. Also I am loving to wear my new Zara cardigan with all white outfits. Anyways...I hope you like the outfit and the pictures!!!

American Apparel top and belt, One Teaspoon shorts, Olivia & Joy bag, J Crew bracelet and G:21 sandals

While in Victoria we went to the BC Museum, they had an exhibition on Vikings so clearly we had to go, seeing as I was traveling with all Scandinavians (vikings). It was actually pretty cool and interesting. After that we ate and went to this community of boat houses and its so cute but pretty touristy. All the houses were so cute and there was a seal and otter hanging out there and we got so close to them. It was awesome, I love watching wildlife and find them so interesting, so I quite enjoyed that. We had nice weather while there so I was able to wear my favorite shorts and you all know how much I love stripes so I wore this top that I have had for a long time but never wear, but on this day it worked and I liked it!! Does that ever happen to you? Randomly liking an item in your wardrobe that has been sitting there forever but on that one day you like it? Weird...

Anyways....I can't wait to show you more and all of my vacation photos. The best is still coming!!

Wednesdays Wishlist - Fall Feeling

Wednesdays Wishlist - Fall Feeling
Rag & Bone bag, Isabel Marant sneakers, blazer and sweater, Elizabeth & James coat, Zara culottes and scarf, Saint Laurent belt and jeans, Proenza Schouler bucket bag and Schutz mules

I am definitely thinking about fall and trying to figure out necessary items that I should get for my fall wardrobe. I am really feeling and wanting to wear lots of neutrals, like beige, nude, white but also black, dark red, olive, navy and gray. I think those are the main colors and also what I have most in my closet, so I guess you could say that I have always liked those colors so I am glad that those are in this season. Aside from colors, I am into leather, shearling, plaid, suede and dark denim, which just seem so perfect for this time of year. Obviously these items here might not be necessities but boy would they ever make my fall attire so much better and amazing. But for now I need to stick to more basic (and budget friendly) pieces for my fall wardrobe.

p.s. I actually just got one of these items myself using the Shopbop iPhone app, check it out for yourself, you can find everything from the website on the app and it makes it super easy to browse and shop no matter where you are!!

Zara cardigan (similar) and jeans, Acne Studios Chance ten top, Olivia & Joy bag, J Crew bracelet and H&M sandals

This was from our first evening in Victoria. We walked around sight seeing, checking out the beautiful old building like the Fairmont and the Parliament building. They were amazing and that whole downtown area was filled with cute old buildings. I loved it, it felt more cozy and smaller town feel then Vancouver and sometimes I miss that, seeing as I grew up in a small town!! After checking out the area we went out for dinner along the harbour. If you ever get the chance to go, it really is a beautiful city.
