“Beautiful British Columbia” says the licence plate – a little full of ourselves aren’t we?

The blogging begins! True, I did get back from Vancouver early this morning (still laden with jet-lag and the three-hour time difference) but the next few posts will all be about my time there. Sure, I could have blogged this in real-time but like I mentioned before, the Fairmont doesn’t offer free wi-fi (but A&W does?) and I was on vacation…so deal with it.

comfort? almost.

When I fly, not literally of course, I like to do so in the utmost comfort because to not be comfortable for a five-hour flight is, well…uncomfortable. So to battle discomfort, the operative word being comfort, I wore black American Apparel leggings, a charcoal grey McGill University t-shirt and navy-striped Urban Outfitters sleeveless long cardigan with Citizen Eco-Drive watch and purple Hunters. Why the Hunters? The forecast called for rain in Vancouver. I wanted to be prepared upon arrival. My need for preparedness compromised my comfort-ness. Noté bien: never wear rubber boots on a five-hour flight. Sure, they do their job very well in keeping outside moisture, well, out. But what about inside moisture? It stays in.

Moral of this story? One can never be fully prepared; life never turns out the way you plan anyway.

PS – I apologize for my terrible self-portrait skills, or lack-there-of. I’ll practice that, I promise.

  1. Too bad about the boots but otherwise this looks like a great travel outfit! The yellow lining on your coat is unexpected but so pretty. Sometimes I’ll just bring slippers to change into on flights and ignore any ensuing stares.

    • Thanks for reading Kat! I learned my lesson for the flight back and opted for some gold flats. That coat gets a lot of use, so a pop of yellow adds a little something to what could be, dull khaki.

What's on your mind?
