skorting by the harbour

jacket: h&m (recent) // tank: aritzia // skort: zara // wedges: aldo (old, but similar here) // sunglasses: ray-ban // watch: michael kors // necklace: james michelle 

I know what you all are thinking, "Melanie succumbed to the Zara skort". If you were indeed thinking this, it's true. I tried so hard not to get it since I've seen a zillion other bloggers get it as well but I couldn't help it! I tried it on and fell in love. 
This was also the case when it came to this blazer/jacket from H&M. I saw it in the window at the Seattle H&M and told myself that I could not go on with my vacation without it (like my reasoning? My boyfriend just rolls his eyes haha). 
Anyway, how beautiful is my scenery? Pretty different from my usual post of a random forest eh? This was right by our hotel in Vancouver. We stayed at the Westin Bayshore which was the most perfect location. Right on Coal Harbour, near Stanley Park and great walking to shops, restaurants and so on. We spent all our evenings just walking the harbour looking at all the beautiful boats. Seriously, you Vancouver ladies are SO lucky! The city life is getting me so excited to move to Calgary in January! I don't think I'm meant for small town life as much as I tried. 

Have a great Wednesday & Thank you for reading!

  5. This was a great place to take some photos. I'm finding myself to be all about the random forest too.

    I have found myself buying pieces based on what I see on blogs, but hey, we all have great taste, right? I feel like most people I know in "real" life don't read blogs, so the great pieces all seem like my own ideas.

    xoxo Jackie
