Winter has felt more like spring here in England. I was preparing for a lot of rain and some snow, as I was warned by locals that this was going to be "the worst winter in decades".  Vibrant green grass, flowers and temperatures above zero degrees make me feel like I'm back in Vancouver, minus all the the rain! The dry mild weather has been great for wearing spring clothes all winter long.
This layered look includes three bold patterns mixed with solids to create balance. Spring is the perfect time of year for adding bold pattern to workwear or casual looks. Stripes and animal patterns are both classics for spring, so I decided to layer them to create an interesting contrast. The micro houndstooth pattern on the Komono watch finishes off the l…

Waking up everyday to extraordinary architecture is a dream come true. The history and intricacy of these buildings from hundreds, even thousands of years ago is incredible. An adventure to Lincolnshire, England led me to this stunning cathedral from Norman times. The original cathedral was completed in 1092. From 1311-1549 the Lincoln Cathedral was the tallest building in the world. The blockbuster film Da Vinci Code Was filmed in the Lincoln Cathedral in 2005. Other successful films have been filmed there as well including; Possession (2002), The Young Victoria (2009) and The Wind & the Willing (1962). 
The fashion photos were  taken in Castle Square, in front of Lincoln Castle. The 1000 year old architecture vs. contemporary fashion was my goal for this post.…

Three hours before taking off to the airport, I was booking flights and accommodations for a few days in Brussels, Belgium. A last minute trip to celebrate my boyfriend's 30th birthday. 
This was our first time in Brussels, so we wanted to get a taste of the city and culture.  Our goal was to relax and wander around the city with no schedule. We came across cool contemporary buildings that I have only seen in Azure magazine, and other historical buildings and sites from hundreds of years ago. 
We managed to explore a lot of the city and some great chocolate shops, beer tours and restaurants along the way. Shopping at Royal Galleries is a must. The alluring smell of chocolate is tough to resist as you walk from one chocolatier to another. What could be better than fresh Belgian chocolate tast…
