Blue skies: styling a black denim pencil skirt with a grey tank top and olive suede ankle boots

After almost two weeks of collateral smoke from the wildfires that have been burning relentlessly in British Columbia’s interior, Vancouver is finally enjoying some blue skies again!!

And just in time for our stay-cation, too!!  If you’re a regular reader, you might recall that Robin and I had actually been planning a road trip down the coast of Oregon and across to Portland this summer; alas – due to a “technical” difficulty – that’s now been postponed until next year.

But I’m honestly only a little disappointed; our beautiful city was a vacation destination for 10 million visitors (yes – 10 million!) in 2016…so why shouldn’t we have a perfectly good holiday right here in our own “backyard”?!

Of course, having a vehicle that makes even the most routine drive (grocery store, anyone?) feel like a bonafide getaway kinda helps out in that department, too!!  It’s been about two months since we’ve had to put the top up on our Solstice…let’s hope this coming week doesn’t disappoint!!
