The New New: Dalina

May 15, 2017

 

When you come across a coffee shop that has copper pans hanging from the ceiling and white marble, it’s hard not to go back. DALINA is one of those places. Situated in the heart of Chinatown, at Main and Georgia, the Italian-inspired café is a hybrid one-stop shop for coffee, quick meals, and hard-to-find groceries.

Serving up a menu of local-ingredient filled salads, sandwiches and more, you can stop here for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you’re that kind of person, they’ve also paired up with Krokodile Pear to serve you juice on the go.

A little bit retro

Shirt | Jeans | Bag (Céline) | Sunglasses (Céline) | Shoes (Sold out — similar)

I’ve been into the whole ’90s throwback trend with clothes these days and this look is no exception. My favourite way to style these mom jeans is to tuck in a fitted shirt on top and throw on a pair of Vans or low block heels for a more sophisticated look.

With summer coming up I’m excited for (a) the rain to stop here in Vancouver and (b) to break out the off-the-shoulder tops and breezy dresses that can be thrown on in the morning in under a minute. The warm weather is apparently supposed to come next week, so stay tuned for summer content here on the blog.

Holiday Dressing for the Unenthusiastic

December 12, 2016

I do quite like the holidays, don’t get me wrong. However, I don’t think you need to dress overly festive. Partly because it’s a waste of money to buy something you only wear once, but also because I don’t think you need to wear metallics or sequins when the holidays come around. Subtle details can work wonders, my friends.

This outfit is really not that festive. The only thing I did was add a fancy choker, as well as red nails and lips to make it more in line with the holidays. I paired one of my favourite ruffled blouses with a pair of classic Levi’s that I wear almost everyday.

The outfit without the choker is something I would wear for a night out regardless of the time of year, which is exactly how you should be putting together your wardrobe! For those who are left scratching their heads while getting dressed for a holiday event, here is an outfit formula for you:

Crisp white blouse + a pair of classic washed denim + a good heel + red lips = easy holiday outfit.

Shop: Jeans | Top | Bag (Céline – similar) | Choker | Boots
