INSTA LATELY #3



Spent that Saturday afternoon hitting a few golf balls.  I almost hit someone in the head so I don't think I'll be going back anytime soon…


Yummy lobster salsa and chips at The Craft in Olympic Village


Visiting the family 


Feeling preppy a few days ago 


One of my favourite buildings I walk past on my way to work

Brainstorming ideas for redecorating when I move back to the burbs next month


A favourite combo.  Stripes, converse and Starbucks.

HIS BASEBALL HAT


Shoes - Birkenstock look-a-likes (the real thing HERE)
Shorts - Forever21
Top - Old
Sunglasses - Raybans
Hat - Stolen from my boyfriend (Love this one too)

I randomly stumbled upon one of my boyfriends old baseball hats last week and really loved the way it looked with my simple button-up and cut-offs.  This outfit is what he likes me in best.  Simple simple simple, with the added bonus of a baseball hat.

  Guys just prefer simplicity, and are confused by fashion forward stuff.  He says "that looks weird", "I don't get it" or "it looks like your wearing a doyle", haha.  We've been together long enough that I actually appreciate his honesty and find it quite funny.  When it comes down to it, my style is my style and I'm sticking to it! But I do love a a good t-shirt and jeans kinda outfit every so often.

Halter Top - Brandy Melville

I've been on a bit of sunglass kick recently. I think I've bought about 8 pairs in the last few weeks.  They are all trendy styles so I didn't splurge on any of them.  

The right pair of sunglasses can totally change an outfit and turn a plain old outfit into something really interesting and stylish.

It's kind of ironic that I'm editing this happy, cheery outfit on a day that sucked so much. It was just one of those days that felt like anything and everything went wrong.  Work wasn't great, then I walked back to where I had parked that morning (usually I bike but once and awhile I'll drive as a "treat"), only to find that my car had been towed for the a ridiculous reason, I then had to waste more money on a cab to the tow yard. When I got home, I found my soaking wet laundry from the morning sitting in the dryer.  Apparently the dryer had decided not to work today. Everything smelt like mildew so I had to do it all over again.  Just to name new a few things that didn't go quite my way today….

In the grand scheme of things, it seems like I'm whining over spilt milk.  Which I am. I know that.  I just can't help but get myself into these funks when things go wrong.  I don't know about you, but I find it terribly hard to just get over it and move on with the day. It's usually an all night thing.  And I hate it.  Which only propels the situation, haha.

I hate to be such a downer on the blog, but life isn't all sunshine and rainbows.  

Leave me a comment about your "funk" days.  I'd love to know that I'm not the only one that suffers from a whole day of grumpiness from time to time…
