Victoria Weekend Photo Diary

Ironically enough, I spent Victoria Day (and a couple days before) in Victoria, British Columbia. A couple posts ago, I mentioned that I shared in the joy and celebration of my brother’s marriage. While I am still trying to gather pictures from the weekend’s main event, I have a couple pictures I uploaded via Instagram (@talktomyshoes) that I thought I’d share on here as well. Most of them are taken from my whale watching adventure but regardless, it is still a bit of a peek into a few days well spent.

I had an amazing time being a bridesmaid for my new sister-in-law! She made the bouquet herself, beautiful isn’t it?

When we arrived in Victoria on the first afternoon, I spent some time with family just watching the float planes land in the harbour. I think E was practically in heaven! 10931163_10101164765523566_602976974343377081_n

Because my dad and I are BFF’s and total (proud) dorks, we did not stop ourselves from taking our selfies- even on our whale watching adventure. I thought that I would end up with more selfies on that trip than pictures of whales- thank goodness someone has better whale-capturing-photography-skills than I because all my pictures sucked. Selfie included. Whale pictures to be shared soon. Dad’s hat by Coach haha! 11165324_10101158047636266_6848398111129700494_n

Meet Plumpy, the harbour seal. I thought we were pretty good friends but I found it awkward he kept reading out for wet hugs and flaring his nostrils at me. Nevertheless, we got along quite well. 11168019_10101171237902866_942024317164114241_n

A little outfit of the day action on our catamaran. So what am I wearing? Layers upon layers because the ocean is breezy. Oversize sweater from Aritzia, and a pink lulu shirt you can see popping out underneath (also a tshirt that reads “It’s getting haute in here” and a tank underneath. Told you I went nuts on the layers). Scarf by Tory Burch, Sunglasses by Chanel. Leggings by TNA and some of my favourite flats by Salvatore Ferragamo. Burberry crossbody. 11206019_10101152030589476_2360690808018268844_nFunny to end with one of the first things I did but the windswept look really captures a lot of the weekend. We took a little harbour taxi- so cute!- on our way to an accidental mid-day lounge hopping fest. Wearing my Tory Burch Scarf, Chanel Sunglasses and Trench and Crossbody by Burberry.

Anyway, I am hoping to have more pictures to share with you soon. Life has really kicked up its pace and has been incredibly busy for me lately. Unfortunately/fortunately it can be expected to be that way for a while. I’ll still be trying my best to update as regularly as possible. As I gradually share some posts I’m sure you’ll see a little more of what is going on. Looking forward to some great things to come!

I hope that you’re all doing excellent, thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to say hello in the comments section! I always love hearing from each of you!

A Whale of a Tale: Kobi Levi, Artistic Design

Kobi Levi is one of those designers who always seems to leave an impression. Perhaps not due to the sheer beauty of his creations but to the amounts of quirkiness in design. Foot Wear Art. Kobi is known for some, may I say, “viral” designs, including the dog pump and the sneaker heel that stepped in gum.

 

 

When I saw these Orca shoes, I knew that I absolutely had to share them with my readers. Kinda silly,  quite adventurous and actually kinda pretty on someones foot. I would totally rock them, had I had a pair. They also are made in a mens flat sneaker type shoe, so you and your boyfriend can match. How sweet.
