Fall Neutrals

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Although it's still feeling like summer in Vancouver, I'm quite aware of how close the cold weather is. Fall always seems to sneak up on me, so I thought I'd start planning my fall wardrobe now. I like to start with a few neutral pieces that are super versatile. Although a few crazy prints (okay stripes aren't that crazy) may not seem neutral, in a neutral palette they really can be paired with anything. Fingers crossed I will be able to cross all of these goodies off my shopping list!

Wedding Things

Dress: Club Monaco | Wedges: Tory Burch | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Bracelet: J.Crew

This past weekend my fiancé and I had the pleasure of attending my good friend Tasshia's wedding. The day was absolute perfection, filled with beautiful handmade details and a stunning mountain backdrop. Can you believe the bride did it all herself? Such talent. I love a good wedding, don't you?

Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup

The Vancouver rain seems to be creeping back this week and with it brings a fall chill that causes me to crave a big bowl of soup. I picked up a pile of heirloom tomatoes at the farmers market over the weekend and decided tomato soup had to be made. This recipe is seriously tasty especially when paired with a grilled cheese sandwich (drool). Enjoy!


5 large tomatoes chopped
3 cloves of garlic smashed
1 yellow onion chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
a few sprigs of fresh thyme
salt and pepper
2 cups vegetable broth
2 tbsp butter
a handful of fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup whipping cream


Preheat oven to 375f. Spread the tomatoes, onion and garlic onto a rimed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with fresh thyme and salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast in the oven for 40 minutes stirring a few times. Pour tomatoes etc into a soup pot. Add the vegetable broth and butter. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 15-30 minutes. Pour soup and fresh basil into a blender and puree. Stir in cream and enjoy!

Diner En Blanc

Dress: Anthropologie | Shoes: Jcrew | Flower Crown: All and Sundry 

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the incredible Diner En Blanc. A sort of flashmob picnic in all white that began in Paris and is now celebrated all over the world. Each guest brings their own table, chairs, dinnerware, etc and of course everything must be white. It was such a memorable experience that we almost didn't capture due to a forgotten camera battery, oops! Luckily we found a spare and were able to capture a few of our favourite moments. I'm already looking forward to next year!
