Celebrating Canada Day

Happy Sunday everyone! Canada Day is fast approaching and just last week I decided I would be going out to celebrate. My girlfriend and I are thinking of checking out Granville Island first as they're hosting a Canada Day Parade and Fireworks. As many of you may or may not know, Granville Island is a huge hotspot for Vancouver Tourism and entertainment, so if you ever decide to visit beautiful Vancouver, I'm sure that's where you'll end up:-).

I believe the last time I was out for Canada Day was about 4 years ago - Yes, it's been a while. I went on a Canada Day boat cruise with a few friends and my girlfriend and I wore matching outfits - see below, if you want to see how silly and in the spirit we looked. However, this Canada Day I thought I'd go with something a bit less flashy:).



I found these fun and funky white earrings with tassels at H&M recently - They're a great statement piece for this outfit as the outfit is quite simple. I decided to pair this look with a low white wedge sandal since will most likely be doing quite a bit of walking. 

I wore these sandals all day today and they're super comfortable. Definitely a great find! Thank goodness.

  1. You guys look like you had tons of fun in 2011! Love your look now, especially those earrings! H&M always has great accessories if you can make it through their crazy messy stores. Happy Canada Day!

    1. Thank you so much Angelina and yes this is so true! However, I do find H&M to be a lot easier to manage than Forever 21 - That store is always a zoo and I tend to give up after 10 minutes of being there, so messy.

  12. You look stunning! Love how this outfit just pops, but is simple and chic at the same time. Love the tassel earrings too. Such a fab statement piece! I think its going to be raining here on Independance day, but hopefully we'll still be able to do a small cookout with family.

  14. You're rocking those white shorts perfectly, such a babe! I'm so jealous I can't be in Vancouver to celebrate with you guys (I did American studies back in Poland and Canada's history was always my favorite, even once I did a presentation about British Columbia and wanted to come there ever since!). Love your country!
