Pacific Spirit

August 31, 2010

Well thank God I went away to my cabin for some downtime in the sun this weekend…got back to Vancouver today and was greeted by our world-famous rain…lots of rain.

My boyfriend jeans took a big beating this weekend…they were rolled around in beach pebbles, drenched in sea water, and I even caught my dog Bailey (who was soaking wet post-swim) taking a little nap on them. To make it up to them, I thought I’d show them a little bit of love by pairing them with this lace bustier camisole by Wilfred. I wear Wilfred bustier tops compulsively, but I am loving this new lace one. Normally I’d layer it under something else to keep it from being too risqué, but I was working on my tan and lace lets more light in, so there you go. Couldn’t compromise my bronzing.

The weekend was so relaxing, and really very well-timed as I somehow still needed some de-stressing time after finishing school. It’s funny how easy it is to switch from hyper-active work mode into quite literally doing nothing other than swimming, reading, lying on the beach, and playing with my doggy. Miss it already!

    Hi ! I like your lace top ! I've got one that looks like it, but it's a t-top, and it is not as "dark" as yours (understand that people can see too much of my skin underneath and THAT is too risqué ! lol).
    Your dog's cute 😉

    Hi Alexandra,

    I saw your profile on weardrobe and just thought I'd come by and say Hi.

    I have just started going through your blog, but are you based in or around Toronto by any chance.

    Really adore your style and wouldn't mind if we could keep in touch.

    How would you feel about following or doing a link exchange with my blog. I'll be sure to return the favour. 🙂

    Love from Toronto, Canada

    Love that top so much! I'm all about the lace camis/bodysuits right now. They are so perfect to layer with or even wear on their own. Sounds like a lovely weekend <3
