Olive You Berry Much

Hi,

The great thing about Pinterest is that it inspires me to play with different colour combinations. I recently came across a colour palette that I am so excited to try during my next blog shoot. I asked a couple of my followers about my next hair do and I concluded on braided cornrows. My little sister calls me a sexy ant with this look, I guess I can take it lol. You know my love for linen this summer is growing so when I came across this pants at Oak and Fort in Chinook Mall, I wanted to have it. This pants are not on sale and they are cotton (not linen). I adore the colour and the high-waisted detail. Also, I was happy that I didn’t have to hem the pants #petitegirlproblems. For the petite girls out there, Oak and Fort definitely caters to our market so I guess they have truly found a customer.

What does Art mean to you?

Hey Guys,

What’s happening this weekend? Someone dropped a comment on my Instagram asking me to do a video of how I tie my head wrap. If many people would love me to do the “how-to” video please comment below.

The wonderland sculpture by Spanish Artist Jaume Plensa outside the bow building downtown Calgary. I actually thought it was a man’s face but after doing research, its actually a young girl’s head which is 12metres high. There are two entrances into the head sculpture which enables individuals interact and engage with the sculpture just like getting into someone’s head and get your own interpretation of art.

WaistCoat Season

Hey Guys,

How was Labor day? Any shopping spree or amazing discounts? Please share!

It’s getting colder by the day in Calgary by the way so I decided to pair my shirt with a waistcoat (scored for 4CAD) , culotte pants (an obsession, lol) and my pink shoes. I really love thrift shopping and finding unique items.
