Summer Daze

by Jen on Monday, July 4, 2011

I'm not one for just lying on the beach and baking in the sun for the whole day, but I can't deny how absolutely wonderful it is to walk along its vicinity and enjoy the warmth and gentle breezes. In Vancouver we're blessed to have beaches enveloped with greenery and mountains that seem to stretch on for miles, and last week the bestie and I took that all in after an afternoon of shopping.

Happy 4th of July, dear American readers!

Wearing: Club Monaco tee, Zara skirt and scarf, Forever 21 cardigan, BCBGMAXAZRIA sandals, Coach bag (c/o Coach), Tom Ford sunnies


You look wonderful! I love your skirt ^^ x

Just beautiful! I love how you are always so put together no matter what the occasion! I especially love that you can wear heels most of the time. On the weekends you will rarely catch me in heels, I can only seem to tolerate them for work when I'm mostly sitting down or only for a couple hours at most.

Jen, that first photo is ultra glam! This look is simple, yet oh so chic. So YOU! So sexy. ;)

I miss shopping with the BFF. She lives so far away (Las Vegas), but although an ocean separates us, we're still as close as can be.

Here's to a wonderful week, Jen!

xx Love & Aloha

p.s. I hope you got my email. :) I sent it a few days ago.

Super cute! Love the stripes paired with the leopard scarf! Enjoy the sunshine :)

I'm absolutely with you, Jen- just sitting on the beach isn't my favourite, but I can't deny the appeal of the Stanley Park/seawall area for a sunny day walk :) I'm really loving your return to classic, lasting pieces. If your wardrobe is any indication, Albert Elbaz is a truly brilliant man. Can't wait to meet you on Saturday!

I was sick through all the sunshine but managed to still make it to the beach - glad you made it there too and did it in style! Love all the different patterns, you look incredibly chic and beautiful as per usual. The most glamorous person at the beach for sure!
