Anthropologie Sale!

I know most people are focused on the Nordstrom Sale right now, but Anthropologie is having a great little sale right now too. I love Anthropologie for everything floral, ruffled and embroidered. Everything is super feminine and classic, things which reflect my style 100%. 

I picked out my favourite items from the sale and you can shop them using the widget below!

Lavender Fields Forever

One of my top summer activities includes a visit to the local lavender farm. Lavender is a hard plant to grow in Canada but Terre Bleu has mastered it and it's such a wonderful place to visit. There are thousands of lavender plants in many different varieties. My personal favourite is the white petaled lavender because it is very unique and stands out among the purple. 

Another great thing about the farm is the amount of pollination that happens there. When you go out into the fields, you hear a consistent buzz coming from all of the different types of bees pollinating the lavender plants. The farm also has its own apiary and they sell lavender honey and beeswax candles and also lavender ice cream (😍)and lemonade!

I always look forward to visiting the farm and taking in everything it has to offer. The season is almost over so I'll hang on to these photos until next year!

Simple Summer Outfit

I've come to realize that my Summer style revolves around simplicity. Simple silhouettes, colours and fabrics are what I'm drawn to and mostly what I end up wearing. This stems from the desire to look nice while also being comfortable for the entire day. 

Off the shoulder tops and chino shorts (in a variety of colours) work so well together and tick my boxes for being aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. I am getting to a place where I need to stop myself from buying more of the same thing! This navy and pink combination is a personal favourite that I know I'll be wearing into Fall!

iPhone Snaps + Tips for a Staycation

It was my birthday this past Tuesday and I've been having so much fun celebrating. I turned 25 which is kind of a huge deal! To celebrate I had a small party and took a small stay-cation to visit my friends from university!



I am obsessed with these shoes and this sweater from Club Monaco. I saw them in store and fell in love immediately!



Snaps from my birthday party! I held it at a Victorian home turned restaurant and it was such a great experience. We had a small private room upstairs with personal service. The food was so good and everyone had a great time!


Lavender from my garden!
  



These lavender pancakes were SO delicious! I would eat them every day if I could.

Now for some staycation tips:

1. Once you've chosen a location, decide on your transportation. If you want the flexibility of going wherever you'd like, maybe driving is for you. If you're looking for ultimate relaxation, consider taking the train 

2. Check Instagram for ideas on local attractions. 
There are likely pamphlets at the hotel with ideas on where to go and what to see, but I find that looking up the location on Instagram gives you a better idea of what the locals enjoy compared to tourist traps. 

3. Don't work!
Photos aside, I made a real effort to stay away from my phone and e-mail over the weekend. It was really nice to just spend time with friends and relax. I was able to clear my mind and now I feel mentally prepared to take on the upcoming week!


Do you have a staycation coming up?
