living in vancouver, we see more than our fair share of rain (more like 300 days a year of it!), and i always thought i was a-ok in my anorak, wellies and umbrella, but after i headed out in my trout rainwear, it was obvious that wearing an actual rain coat was something i’d been missing out on.
trout is a rare find: their rain coats are actually stylish and functional! these jackets made by trout are fantastic and hit every mark on a fashionable rain warriors check list: fashion forward, waterproof (not just water resistant like most on the market), and totally quality… and they look like your every day spring trench! each style has a huge hidden hood to keep you (and your hair and makeup) protected with a relaxed easy fit that can be worn rain or shine. did i mention the jackets are made right here in vancouver? i seriously love that.
the line was founded by sisters jenn lancefield and ashley mcdonald (how fun would it be to work along side your sis?!) and i had the chance to chat with them about their rainwear focused line.

i am such a fan of a pop of neon and seem to buy quite a bit of it to add in to my (mostly black) wardrobe. especially for summer, i love pairing a neon tank with maxi skirts and have been known to wear a lot of it at the gym. i love all of these ideas on how to splice a dash of it into your every day look.

my iphone is naked and i’ve been browsing around for a stylish iphone case – our iphones have become an accessory and she needs a new case to dress her up! these are my faves on the market right now – i have my eye on one of them in particular, which would you choose?

the sun is starting to make an appearance more regularly and i’m feeling so bright and happy! these are a few things i can’t get enough of right now.
dayNa decker sent over this luxe peony candle – i’m not only in love with it, but the packaging is stunning and so right up my alley; i’m defo keeping that box! oh, and it’s natural and basically chemical-free. the candle burns with a soft crackling sound that is so tranquil with a book. i actually get sad when i have to blow it out! | please tell me you like a smidgen of trash tv? well, i love a lot of it and am watching the new season of real housewives of orange county online… with my bf (he pretends he’s doing me a favour, but i know the truth) | every year around this time, i break out my jo malone nectarine blossom and honey cologne. it’s so, so fresh and bright and instantly gets me in the vibe of spring and summer | i have this cook book on order and (as you may know) am a huge gp fan. based on what i’ve heard, her newest cookbook is all about a natural, organic and gluten free lifestyle which i try to adhere to myself | i picked up these sweet, tiny and delicate heart shaped earrings for myself at a local boutique, loft 82 and can’t take them off
call me nosy, but i love to see what a woman has in her handbag. we carry around the most practical, and impractical things, don’t we? the moment i see a blog spilling ‘what’s in the bag’, i click through to see if there’s something cool i need to know about! well, are you ready to see what’s in my brand spankin’ new 3.1 philip lim pashli?
