Airport chic

Travel airport outfit idea blogger

Growing up, travel was a luxury. We didn't take many family trips because money — and time — were too tight. So, when we did happen to venture on a vacation, it was always cause for celebration.

And called for dressing up.

The air of celebratory excitement has stuck with me, so I always attempt to look stylish when I'm heading off on a trip.

But while I enjoy dressing up for my holiday,  I don't like to go overboard. So, cue a comfortable pair of shoes and pants, with a few eye-catching accessories thrown in for good measure.

Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale: Top buys

Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale: Top buys

Everyone's favourite sale — the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale — is back. And I don't know about you, but it seems to be better than ever this year.

I literally want it all. But alas, I'm trying to avoid shopping until after my birthday next week, so I won't be able to take part in the amazing deals. 

But a girl can always dream, and dream I have.

Check out the pieces in my wishlist-worthy weekend outfit above (comprised of all deeply discounted items, of course!) for a little shopping inspiration. 

I've been so into distressed denim, stripes and sneakers lately, so this outfit hits right on my current summer wish list!

And if I can't shop this epic sale, somebody's got to get out there and get their shop on for me!

Happy Saturday and thank you for stopping by!

Tunic talk

Vero Moda tunic top outfit idea Vancouver blogger

As far as a ranking of my current closet covets goes, tunic tops are a close second to denim.

But I often find it difficult to find one that's long enough to fit properly (I have an oddly long torso!), or else doesn't resemble a maternity piece.

That's why when I spotted this rust-coloured version during a recent browse through the Hudson's Bay — and found that it fit me correctly and didn't resemble a third-trimester top — I had to have it.

Paired with an Aritzia dress that can sometimes be a bit unforgiving, it creates an effortless ... and office-appropriate look that I will surely be repeating well into the summer.

Happy Thursday and thank you for stopping by!

Nothing signals the pending arrival of summer quite like stripes, chambray and sweet new sandals.
