Boardwalking: styling a striped pencil skirt with a white patterned blouse, white sunnies, and white ankle-strap sandals

I think this might have been the very first time in four years of blogging that Robin and I ever managed a photoshoot in the morning, dear readers!!

We had friends invited over to our place for an afternoon barbecue, which meant that pics and picking up groceries had to happen earlier in the day…much earlier than we’re accustomed to.  Unless it’s truly unavoidable, weekends are all about sleeping in around our place!! 😉

That being said, it was rather nice to be outside enjoying fresh air and sunshine at an hour we’re usually still home yawning and contemplating how we’re going to spend the day.  But I considered it a bit of a bonus that we didn’t have to make a second pit stop just so that we could take advantage of the beautiful floral displays at Westminster Quay for our photos…since my favourite specialty market is located right at the end of the boardwalk!!

Aside from the flowers, the eagle-eyed among you may also have noticed a palm tree or two.  While they don’t grow nearly as big as they do in California, they can actually be found all around Vancouver…and I can only imagine that they’re enjoying this record-breaking hot and sunny summer weather even more than I am!!

    Do more mornings. I love the sharp morning light on those floral displays and on the crisp look of your outfit. It just goes together. I'm biased though. I'm always out of the house early. My weekends are way too busy and I have to be on the road too long to stay in bed too long. I always feel like I have to catch the day before it gets away from me (I just made that metaphor up, but now I like it and feel I need to use it more).
