My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to find peace with exactly who and what I am. To take pride in my thoughts, my appearance, my talents, my flaws and to stop this incessant worrying that I can’t be loved as I am. Anais Nin

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.’” -Lewis Carroll

Heidi and I went out to snap these photos on a crisp clear -20 day in the stunning bow valley. I couldn’t feel my hands or my feet but still managed to get some shots equipped with a set of 10 thumbs and a gorgeous model. It is so easy to forget to look up and realize how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful valley. Most of what inspires me comes from my experiences as a ski racer, being outdoors and surrounded by simple and raw elements. Sometimes all it takes is a fresh snowfall to rediscover your surroundings.

 

Thanks to my good friend Heidi for taking some time out of her busy training regime (Canadian Olympic hopeful) and letting me snap some pictures of her, she is just as strong and beautiful as the mountains.

 

Here is a quote I have been thinking of lately:

 

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. Colossians 3:12-14 MSG

It’s fall everybody! Time to cozy up with a warm drink… maybe paint your nails red and throw on a warm sweater too! : ) Out here in on the west coast, darkened clouds have been sputtering rain all morning; a prime opportunity to wear my gumboots! Wet leaves break free from their branches and tumble down, glueing themselves to the side walk. I’m feeling a late afternoon pumpkin spice latte to bring in the first day of Fall!

A couple weeks back I purchased a few items from Brandy Melville and instantly fell in love with the fit of the Bethan dress. I have linked below a few other dresses perfect for summer and that can easily transition into fall:) hope you find this helpful!! xx

 

1. This t-shirt dress from Urban outfitters is super easy to wear, comfy and casual.

2. I’m love with this Free people dress that can easily be transitioned into the different seasons.

3. I love everything about this dress. Plus its on sale!

4. Nasty Gal has some seriously cool cut out styles, I particularly love this one.

5. My favourite style of dress is a comfortable shift dress with selves like this one here

I bought this shirt from the sale rack at Superstore and thought I would add it to my winter wardrobe. The flower pattern was a little too much though, so I decided to eliminate some of it by cutting off the sleeves. I absolutely love how it tuned out; pretty, easy, and cute – my new go-to summer shirt!

Some friends were heading down to Canmore for the weekend so I literally made a last minute decision and caught a ride with them. I never pack much when I visit Michaela because I know I’ll be living in her clothes the entire time anyways! She put together this adorable outfit and I loved wearing it! This Jean vest is the new favourite and I can’t wait to get one for myself. I’ve already worn it a couple times this weekend!

It is so nice to have evening light again! I was waiting for a friend to pick me up for dinner and I was so happy I was able to snap these pictures without my winter parka on! Even though there is still snow on the ground there are sure signs that spring is just around the corner!

Now that it’s finally reading week, I’ve had time to indulge in activities other than studying! After my last midterm on Friday, I travelled back home and haven’t cracked open a textbook since. I was rummaging in the back of my closet and found a pair of old, slightly grubby shoes from Wal-Mart so I decided to spice them up a bit! My family just booked our tickets for Hawaii in the spring so I’ve been in the Tropical mood of late. : ) I put on some Jack Johnson and doodled away. This craft was easy and relaxing and I love how they turned out! I was tempted to stick with the black and white but ended up adding some colour anyway. Just imagine long boarding with these, jean shorts, a baggy tank and a topknot! If only I knew how to long board!
