Cool Blue

My boyfriend and I (and our beagle, Gus!) are planning to move in July, and so have been hitting the pavement to find the newest apartments in our favorite residential neighborhood in Vancouver, the West End.  


These searches can last hours and can have us out in all of the weird weather we have been having here lately (it's sunny...it's raining...it's sunny!) so layering is essential-I love how a dress can transform from looking beachy to city appropriate with just a sweater and a pair of boots.

  14. Love this! Probably one of my favorites. I really like how you get extra miles out of your dresses by wearing tees over them.

  19. This is my kind of outfit. And reminds me of Quinn style (from Glee). Good luck with the apartment hunting, I hate looking and moving. It's such a long and painful process, hopefully you'll have some luck! :) X




    P.S. Don’t forget about my giveaway!

  27. I feel your pain. We are house hunting right now, and we have already put in the notice at our current place. PRESSURE. Best of luck to you. You definitely look more chic on the hunt than i do.

  28. Gus is too cute! The West End is definitely my favourite neighbourhood, the move there is a great choice :) I'm loving this layered look- definitel essential for this bizarre weather we've been having. The striped tee looks gorgeous layered over that delicate dress, and of course I have a bias toward those wonderful ankle boots ;)
