chambray all the way


dress c/o // bag // shoes (old - similar) // sunnies

It is no secret that I love sundresses, I mean what girl doesn't? They are comfy, flattering, and easy peasy to throw on and head out the door! When this gorgeous chambray blue and white embroidered dress came to the door I immediately fell in love. The long sleeves are so cute but most of all I love the waist line that flares out a little on the bottom. Seriously, THE most flattering dress I own. I was afraid maybe it would look a little boxy but not. at. all!

This dress is under $50 and would look perfect with a bold red lip for the 4th of July! Since I am here in Canada we will be celebrating Canada Day on the 1st of July wearing our red and white... no blue this year!


On a personal note, life has been so busy! Busier than we had expected it to be. With the building of the home (and yes, we are doing the actually building. My father is a contractor so it is an entire family affair putting up beams, painting, building cabinets!) we are at the site daily trying to get as much done in one day as possible. I just spend the last 4 days white washing pine planks.... lets say my back is hurting! 

Other than the house we are still trying to get all of the move paperwork finished. We officially have BC drivers licenses, our cars are almost finished with the important process, and we now have bank accounts. Little steps each day in the right direction! The other night Stephen and I had some time to ourselves so we decided to be spontaneous and run some errands. I looked at him and asked if he felt like Vernon was home yet? We both agreed we don't know if it feels like home... just yet, but definitely feels comfortable. 

This weekend we are excited for the Canada Day celebration full of maple leafs and fireworks and enjoy the amazing weather we have been having. Talking high 90's with warm sunshine and blue skies!
