Beachside Gingham

Finishing up our incredible week in my husband's hometown on the blog today. I meant to post this post last week but wasn't able to because my best friend ended up going into labor and gave birth to her second child! In fact, the reason we took this Canada trip at the beginning of the month was so I was sure to be home around her due date.

J.Crew dress (similar here and here), Gap denim jacket, Serena & Lily belt (sold out, similar here), Chloé flats, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Illesteva sunglasses (these ones are on sale)

One thing my husband always has fond memories of is going to the beaches in Vancouver in the summer. His oldest brother used to be a lifeguard at Spanish Banks beach, and so we took a drive over there. The beach was quiet and almost deserted (it was a bit cloudy that day), which made it the perfect spot to sit in peace and admire the mountains and downtown Vancouver in the distance. It was touching to visit the spot where my husband used to spend time with his family when he was a boy.

You can't go wrong with a good gingham dress. I loved this dress the moment I first saw it in the catalogue. It sold out really quickly, but if you keep checking back on the website sometimes they get more in. I also really like this dress and this dress.

We flew home to Los Angeles with our cats in tow (even if Daenerys threw up all over me during our rocky landing) just in time for another heat wave, but we look forward to next family adventure coming up!

    You should check out the Secret Garden Tea Company the next time you’re in Vancouver – I think you’d really enjoy it! Butter Baked Goods also has a great high tea.
