Wow, where has the time gone? I feel like just yesterday it was the beginning of July, and now here we are, four days into August.
Lately, I have been working my buns off, selling clothing to customers and attempting to keep my head afloat amongst the other hungry stylists. I cannot even begin to explain how tired I am from working so much. I literally have had no time to post, to take photos, or to put together outfits.
But this past Saturday, I had a day off (finally), and it was the perfect time for Kyujin and I to take a little vacation to our province’s capital: Victoria.
Though we didn’t take too many photos, I did want to share the ones we were able to capture, as few as they are. The day was so grey in the beginning (which I loved), but slowly, the sun started to show its face through the clouds. In the end, it turned into a beautiful sunset, which was perfect for snapping a few shots on the ferry back to the mainland.
First stop of the day: The Parliament building. I just love the look of it, and the gorgeous fountain out front makes the perfect backdrop for a picture. (Ignore my expression in this one)
My accomplice for the day (and pretty much my life): my amazing boyfriend, Kyujin. Ain’t he a cutie?
Most expensive hotel in Victoria (and all of BC, for that matter) say, what?! Even going inside there you feel inadequate. Absolutely gorgeous. I’m making it my mission to one day stay a night there.
I caught him off-guard. My bad.
Look who we found. I just love how different our expressions are here. Me, attempting a supermodel pose and Kyujin, trying to copy Sully’s stance. Sigh.
Chinatown in Victoria is amazing. If you’re in the area, you need to go.
And now for the outfit.
Since we were going to be walking the entire time, I wanted to opt for something comfortable and cute. The weather in the morning was terrible, so I knew riding boots were going to be a must. As well, I wanted to add layers, just in case it warmed up as the day progressed (which it did) so I wore a lightweight and flowy white button-down under my new duo-toned cardigan/jacket. Going along with the colour scheme of the overthrow, I chose to wear my comfy black skinny jeans which blended well with the rest of the look.
I kept my accessories minimal, with my gold watch, leather friendship wrap bracelet, silver and pearl cat earrings (see the photos below for a better look) and a few rings. I really love to mix metals, so my little details really incorporated that into the look.
The final shots of the day, on the ferry home. The sunset was absolutely stunning, and we had to go on deck for a better look. The way it reflected off the ocean… I am so glad I got to share that with this kid. It was magical, just like the day itself. A perfect finale.
