honey i ain't nothing new //

I have to say, that this past weekend I had a PERFECT Sunday. What on earth could constitute an entire day of perfection you ask? Well, to begin, I slept in until 11 am and it was all kinds of glorious. Adam and I then went for breakfast at The Whip where we shared a fruit smoothie and I indulged in french toast stuffed with strawberries and cream cheese. We headed up Main Street wandering into stores along the way. Adam purchase a winter jacket and an East Van t shirt from Exhibit, which I loved because the only thing that makes me happier than shopping is watching other people shop! I obviously stopped by Barefoot Contessa to see the windows that The Anthology styled, then the final and most damaging to my bank account was Front & Co. Adam and I both bought each other "birthday presents" aka we both knew we shouldn't be buying anything and justified purchasing them for each other as gifts. Our birthdays aren't until November. Basically, this black hat is not yet mine. It was an extremely early present that I essentially borrowed for this photo because I really liked it with my outfit.

After shopping we got coffees at Liberty Cafe, I watched Adam's team kick ass at his soccer game, and then myself and some of Adam's family members ate "Thanksgiving" dinner at White Spot. We went to my parent's house to see my brother and catch up on our PVR'd Mad Men episodes (only 2 left of the season eeep) and ended the night with Hot Tub Time Machine.

I don't know if it really was the perfect Sunday or it just seemed that way because we had another day off on Monday. Or maybe Sunday seems so lovely because my car was broken into on Monday night. But that's a whole other post in itself, wouldn't you say?

  1. Love the polka dots and the great big floppy hat! So much fun!

  2. Hi Alicia,
    Sounds like a day of perfection.

    I've haven't been on Main Street in ages. Do you remember the Orange Bag? It was on the corner of Main and King Ed (it's closed down now). Working downtown keeps me hitting up H&M and True Value Vintage. Love!

    Have a great day and the sun is suppose to be out today :)


  3. Sounds like a wonderful Sunday. I adore your outfit! The red bow in your hair, with the hat and poka-dot shirt is too cute. Buying gifts for eachother is always a great way to justify a purchase. It doesn't count in your budget when you buy gifts for those you love.

  4. Adorable!
    I'm obsessed with that hat.

  5. Love this outfit! That hat is too cute. Sounds like a perfectly lovely weekend! : )


  6. That little bow is the CUTEST thing! Love how it is paired with the studded bag as well.

    That Sunday just sounded lovely. When you're birthdays actually roll around, I hope they're just a great!

  7. You look so cute!

  8. Wow, that DOES sound like a perfect day. Any Sunday that starts off with sleeping in is great in my books, but then an indulgent breakfast and shopping along Main St? Nicely done. And I love this hat with your outfit!

  9. im loving the whole boho inspired look, and sorry to hear about your car..as*holes!


  10. Love the hat, & studded bag toned down with the polka dot, cowboys and red bowtie. Isnt Hot Tub Machine so funny.. one of Charles good friends plays the younger version with the High cut. Im totally like that with xmas gifts with Charles.. by gifts extra early and end up swapping before the official day!

  11. Wow, what a gorgeous outfit, Alicia! I love the socks and boots combo. ;)

  12. Great outfit, but I really love your hair! That's what my hair would look like if I had any choice in the matter.

    Love discovering blogs of fellow Canadians!
