The cherry blossoms are in full bloom in Victoria and it really feels like Spring. Dave and I were lucky to have the long weekend off so we headed back to my hometown to visit friends and family. The sun shone the whole time we were visiting, which we greeted with open arms after a rainy month in Tofino. After going for a run and passing this beautiful tree, I made Dave drive back and take some shots of me in an equally blooming dress.
One of my favourite things to do when the days get longer and it begins to warm up is search through my Spring & Summer clothes that I've packed away for the cold winter. I was happy to see this old favourite when I opened the box, a Nasty Gal dress I bought a few years back. Even on a cooler Spring day this dress is great paired with tall boots, tights and a leather jacket. Here I layered it with a black lace bralette from Aerie for a little extra texture. After scrolling through my Instagram feed and seeing Coachella posts all weekend, I felt inspired to put a festival spin on my dress by adding a black wool hat. Dave bought me this black hat last summer when we started out on our road trip to the Rockies from the cutest boutique in Kelowna, Ginger Lily. I highly recommend any of you visiting to stop in to Ginger Lily, all their stuff is to die for and if we hadn't just started our road trip I would have bought it all!
