View finder: cropped jeans with a sequinned tee, floral kimono, booties, and a fedora

Hard to believe…but it’s been almost four years since sharing my outfits via a blog first became a “normal” part of life for Robin and me.  (I’m including my hubby in the equation because, as my photographer, I sure couldn’t do it without him!!)

Those readers of mine who also happen to be personal style bloggers will understand what a “labour of love” this thing can be…there are definitely days when I (make that “we”!) wish the pictures would just magically take themselves!!  But on a warm and sunny afternoon, when we have all the time in the world to drive to a scenic location and experiment with lighting and camera angles??  Now that’s fun!!

This particular day – the finale to our extended anniversary celebration a couple of weekends ago! – we took the aptly-named Sea to Sky Highway to Squamish, which is about 45 minutes south of Whistler.  Squamish might not have quite the panache of that well-known ski resort, but it does have a certain charm of its own…and an impressive “guardian” in the form of a 2300 foot tall dome of granite known as the Stawamus Chief.

If you’re brave enough, you can hike a very steep trail up to summit of the Chief…but Robin and I felt much safer exploring this tranquil estuary we discovered at the outskirts of town.  Besides, there sure ain’t no Starbucks waiting at the top of that great big rock!! 😁

    Great look. I love the edgy sequin mouth on your T-shirt. The coat is calling my name. So chic. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style.
