Currently blogging from the YVR airport gate heading to LA for a quick little project! Vancouver has been kind to me lately in terms of weather and Jack and I managed to capture a particularly sunny day in Gastown a few weeks ago. We wandered around, mostly around Main & Alexander, before deciding to check out graffiti alley off Homer. And here the pyjama shirt strikes again. What I love about this top is how breathable and lightweight it is. Perfect for layering over some rugged, opaque leather shorts. Fringed with delicate lace, these Rag & Bone Highclare's are still my favourite - the hidden pockets were a good selling point. Haphazard buttoning skills and black accents paired well with my lazily slung Miu Miu bag. I'm still in love with the harlequin pattern and feel a little smug that I coincidently channelled my inner Harley Quinn in such a hooligan appropriate surrounding. I wonder if any Batman fans read my blog?
