Pink Pleats & An Antique Bookstore!

October 6, 2011 – 01:20

We finally had a rain-free day, so Martin & I happily headed out for a mini adventure. Oh boy, life on the West Coast isn't easy when you're a blogger -we've been getting so much rain! We headed to a small historic town (close to where we live) and explored the downtown area. The streets are lined with heritage homes which have been converted into charming tea shops, bookstores and even a few art galleries. It's so quaint; we love living here!!

Ah, this little bookstore was so full of charm. I loved the interior... old hardwood floors and lined with fantastic books -everywhere! Hopefully (sometime soon) we'll get to take some outfit photos inside too. How fun would that be?! I absolutely love old bookstores! It's amazing to think that it used to be someone's home, filled with memories, family dinners and just to day-to-day life! Pretty neat, right? That said, I'd love to own a heritage home one day. But my goodness, Vancouver has such insane real estate prices!! So for now, we are happy condo dwellers.

Pleats. Ruffles. Pink. Oh my!! When Emily of "EL Vintage" sent me this dress, I was immediately over the moon in love with it. I've already worn it several times this week and paired it with a chunky cable knit cardy and black ruffled ballet flats -loved that look so much too. Also, be sure to pop by "EL Vintage, " guys. Emily has such an amazing eye for gorgeous vintage pieces and she's offering you (yay!) a 15% discount with code: "15girlcloset"! Happy almost Friday. Does anyone have any fun adventures planned for the weekend?!
