Shop girl: styling a sheer lace top with slouchy trousers, cut-out booties, and a crossbody bag

I can’t possibly be the only one who believes a holiday isn’t really a holiday without a bit of shopping…can I??

Which is why Robin and I decided to do exactly that on the weekend; just to get our stay-cation off to the perfect start, of course!!  Honestly, I haven’t been super enthusiastic about shopping recently…mostly because the new fall merchandise showing up in stores everywhere is a depressing reminder that summer (my favourite season!) is coming to a close.

But it’s rather obvious that a Sunday afternoon visit to our favourite outlet mall managed to change my mind!! I found a fab pair of sandals at Browns, snagged a hat and several necklaces at Lucky Brand, and added some jeans to my denim collection care of Winners!!

So there’s more than enough new stuff for me to wear through the rest of our little Vancouver vacation…and to show off here on the blog in the coming weeks, as well!!  Be sure to stay tuned!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    We also shop together when we have vacation! I love to do that because my hubby knows what looks good on me and is honest! That s what we need when we shop for clothing! And ……when I say:no, I already have enough shoes, hรจ says:oh come on it s vacation!

    I'm glad I am not the only one who doesn't want to see summer end. I'm so sick of people blathering on about how much they love fall. I hate to see summer end! I always feel like I "waste" summer too much. I go on my annual vacation, but then I feel like I want more. I need to SWIM more and I need to go to festivals and fairs, and I need to drink at more outdoor bars, and I need to spend more time outside.

    Would you believe my husband is sometimes more into vacation shopping than I am? If we're in a city, he wants to see what kinds of snazzy shirt and shoes he can find. I'm more about finding the most unique boutiques possible. I have been known to take a day-long staycation to shop the local outlet malls though. I can relate to your recent excursion.

    Super sexy look with that top!
