The life of a blogger means that I bring all of you on vacation with me:) Today’s post is a typical day on my trip and my outfit is based around a column of black. Yes, I still wear black clothes because I love them. To be honest, I’m not comfortable being limited to any one color palette so you’ll continue to see me wearing what strikes my fancy at the time:)
As always, you can click the red highlighted text for more garment info and to shop the pieces.
We spent much of the day soaking up the gorgeous natural beauty. No trip to Vancouver is ever complete without spending time in Stanley Park. I can still remember my granny bringing me here many years ago to see the Hollow Tree, a popular landmark, that is still popular today.
I always find a column of color slimming and a column of black to be dead simple. I’m on vacation, so easy to pull together and easy to wear is often the name of the game. Neutrals are my go-to for travel because I never tire of them and that means a lot when I have a limited wardrobe for 5-6 weeks.
Accessories are more important than ever with a limited wardrobe, and for some unknown reason, I left most of mine at home..except for a few scarves which you’ve seen me wear on repeat. This day I folded a cotton bandana on the diagonal into a narrow strip and threaded through my never-used button holes and tied tiny knots at the end. Voila, color, pattern, and no fuss with a scarf.
A quick change of jacket, scarf, earrings, and shoes, (for a cab ride to and from a restaurant) to meet our daughter for dinner at Miku’s on the Burrard Inlet next to the Vancouver landmark Canada Place. This restaurant is a must when visiting Vancouver for truly unique Japanese flavors with a West Coast flair.
When you go, be sure you try the Salmon Oshi Sushi, which is flamed and out of this world.
My shins are much improved and I’m careful to wear shoes with support, cushioning and that don’t require me to grip my toes when I’m walking further than the corner. As you know, most of my shoes are at home so there will be a bit of a purge when I get home and much more thought going forward.
How do you switch up an outfit from day to night? Is color an important component?
