It’s hard to believe these pictures were only snapped this Sunday – it’s been so miserable and wet for days now that this sunshine feels like ages ago! Nevertheless, once many moons ago Vancouver was indeed sunny and Matt and I decided to take advantage of it by going for a very chilly but very beautiful bike ride to watch the sunset from our favourite lookout point. I’ve really missed my daily bike commutes (it’s too wet and dark for my liking to really commute to work via trusty old Mojito lately) so it felt so good to get back on the bike and wheel around, even if it was freezing beyond belief (check out the pink nose for evidence)! Let’s just say we were very happy to have remembered to pack a blanket – it came in handy come sunset.
Also keeping me cozy? This Obakki Foundation scarf, and not only because it’s beautiful, but also because of what the scarf stands for.
I’m sure many of you have heard of the crisis currently going on in South Sudan. The nation’s been torn apart by conflict since mid-December and over 200,000 people have had to flee from their homes. They quite literally have nowhere to go, no sense of safety or security and no basic resources like water. It’s really heart wrenching to see this statistic go up every day and to know it’s that many more people without basic life necessities. 
I’m always proud to work for Obakki Foundation but never so much as right now – despite the ongoing daily violence, the foundation’s incredible field team is back in South Sudan, carrying out our clean water relief efforts as I type this out. I know it can seem a bit sales pitch-y to talk about a product that comes from a company that you work for, but I really wanted to highlight the scarf because if you love it and buy it for yourself or a loved one, 100% of net proceeds literally get streamed immediately toward these projects that are saving lives. So if you love it, the time to buy is now! The more wells our field team can drill, the more people we can help!
Anyway, switching gears to a much lighter note – I will probably be back on Monday with a much shorter ‘do. My hairdresser tends to talk me out of going too too short but I really need a more drastic change – I’ve been coming back to this pic again and again for inspo. Thoughts? Major chop or little chop? Let me know what you think! Hope all of you have the best weekend 🙂

    Love your bike attire! Last time I rode a bike was when I was in Vancouver in the summer along where you are! So beautiful! Also, GO FOR THE CHOP! I think you'd look amazing! I once chopped off all my hair and it was so liberating! Can't wait to see what you do xx

    First of all love the colors on this look. And I say major chop, I think the cut in the picture would look great on you.

    Nice outfit, Hope you had a great time riding! I'm not sure about short hair it always seems so tempting for me too, but in the end of the day a long hair has much more presence and it takes years to grow hair back! So think twice before any drastic haircut!
    Have a great weekend too!

    Perspective is a funny thing, isn't it?! I just checked out your hair inspiration photo…and to me, it's still plenty long!! 😉 It's a pretty style – bobs are always very chic! – so I say "go for it!!" And I am slowly building up my own comfort level when it comes to wearing red…the scarf does some amazing things both for the wearer (talk about a "pop!") and the cause it supports!!

    I love the casual outfit. For some reason, the bike makes the look extra special.

    I've been loving red a lot too these days. Fashion aside, it's always nice to wear something with a greater meaning and or cause.

    Looking forward to seeing the new do. I have a feeling you went for the chop!!
