Five minutes before these pictures were taken, I was almost kicked out of the building. This was my last day staying in Canmore, and the weather decided to be evil and rain all day. So, I was forced to relocate and take pictures inside. I found this cool rec centre in town and for those who find yourselves in Canmore, definitely go visit it, it’s calledElevation Place. Anyways, dogs aren’t usually allowed in buildings as I was told by the manager. But as soon as he stopped to pet Oakley, he said we could stay. I swear I could get away with robbing a bank as long as I had Oakley by my side. (Attn police: don’t worry I won’t actually rob a bank.)

I really love this tank top that I am wearing. It is from the cutest online store called Caralase. Everything at this store screams my name. I need everything. My shirt is a loose black tank with crochet detailing on the hem and the neckline. It is so pretty! It also comes in grey and ivory but I definitely love how the lace stands out on the black version. Because it was a bit of a chillier day in Canmore, I was forced to pair it with a sweater. This sweater is from Bethany Mota’s collection at Aeropostale and I am way too obsessed with it. It just feels like you’re wearing a blanket and who doesn’t want to wear a blanket all day?

The necklace that I am wearing holds a very special place in my heart. It is from an online marketplace called 9th and Elm. It is a wooden sideways cross on a silver chain where I engraved Jeremiah 29:11. Ever since I started my blog a couple years ago, I’ve had this passage stated on my homepage. I have always found comfort in this verse. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Whenever I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing in life, it reminds me that God is watching over me and He already has a plan for me.

My Favorite Town

If there was one place that I had to live for the rest of my life, I would choose New York. However, if New York wasn’t an option, I would definitely choose Canmore. For all you non-Canadians, Canmore is the cutest town you will ever see. It’s buried in the mountains, about 20 minutes outside of Banff. It’s so peaceful here and recently, we took Oakley (my dog) to the town and he loved it just as much as me.

How can you focus on my outfit when there are mountains right behind me? The mountains are distracting me with their beauty. For those who have never seen mountains in person, you need to get your butt over here.

Anyways, my shirt is from a cute boutique called Simple Addiction. It’s a lace high low shirt with three quarter length sleeves and a low, open back. I’m usually not the biggest fan of open back shirts but I thought this one was very tasteful and pretty. I paired it with these orange shorts from Gentle Fawn and added strappy, snakeskin sandals. For jewelry, I wore my Fossil watch (duh!), a new bracelet from Simple Addiction with pretty blue stones, and my favorite grey and gold bangle from J.Crew.

So folks, I hope to see you all in Canmore when I’m there next. It really is the best place on earth.

Puppy’s First Roadtrip

Ever since we got Oakley two years ago, we have never been on a road trip. He’s a bit of a handful so we didn’t think he would do so well travelling in a car. But like any dog, Oakley absolutely loves people and walks and nature and car rides so we decided to take one final trip before school started up again.

First stop was Lake Louise. It was crawling with tourists who were all way too excited to see Oakley. Eighteen people (yes we counted) asked to take a picture with him. Zero people asked to take a picture with me. It’s alright. Oakley was so excited to see canoes in the water. He wanted to join them.

Now, on to the outfit. I am wearing one of my favorite new t-shirts. I recently picked it up on sale from Zara. I didn’t even try it on, I just saw it and bought it. I love graphic tees, you can never have too many! And ‘AGGGGHHHH’ just seems to sum up my life lately. I also really love the pants I’m wearing today. I have such a special place in my heart for printed jeans.

The name necklace I’m wearing today is from 9th and Elm. 9th and Elm is a marketplace featuring products from independent and handmade designers. I am obsessed with this necklace. Is it narcissistic to wear a necklace with your own name on it? Maybe. But it’s super cute so we’ll just ignore that.
