Victoria, BC OOTDs

We are just back from a wonderful time in Victoria, British Columbia... the weather was gorgeous and we spent some slow-paced, relaxing family time enjoying The Empress (beautiful, beautiful, beautiful) and surrounds. I have lots of pics (actually over 250 somehow) so I'll post a few later, but for now, here are my oufits-of-the-day for the trip:

Travel day (my new favorite travel uniform = comfy dress over leggings, cardi, ballet flats):

ON dress in gray, Target leggings in black, LOFT cardi in ivory, Tory Burch Revas in Silver, light blue stone earrings from little bead shop

First day in Victoria:

LOFT ruffle top in white, J Crew Jackie in Misty Lavender, Merona denim, TB Revas

Tea on Saturday:

Liberty of London for Target dress (girls' dept XL), LOFT cardi, Jack Rogers Navajo in Gold, Anthropologie earrings

Cocktails & Dinner at the Bengal Lounge:

J Crew Impressionist Floral Cami in Golden Beach, ON white denim (years ago), Jack Rogers Navajo in Gold

Last day in Victoria:

J Crew Ringspun Cotton Rosette Tee (last year), ON denim in white, oatmeal cardi from Nordstrom Rack, TB Revas in Silver

Hope everyone's starting out a great week!



  1. These are some really cute outfits!

  2. Each and every outfit looks wonderful!

    I love that you wore that cute LoL dress to tea. It's so appropriate!

  3. You certainly know how to do casual very chicly. I love the Nordstroms cardi and that Impressionist cami just pops!

  4. oh my, love, love, love that white ruffle top from the loft in the 2nd OOTD pic. I need it! How recent did you buy it?

  5. I'm gonna invest my Nordie bday gift card in another pair of TB ballet flats. You are making me think metallic is the way to go :)

  6. Looks like you and your family had a wonderful time in BC. Love the outfits---i was waiting for some of your OOTD's!! Love the dress over leggings look---this is one of my favorite ways to dress, so comfy and cute!! LOVE the 2nd outfit, that LOFT ruffly tank is beautiful! Is it a new item, or something you got a long time ago? I was in the LOFT recently and picked up some cute things in their sale room recently.....anyway, I just love that tank with the lavender cardi and silver flats! Also love the outfit you wore to dinner/drinks. So pretty!! The last outfit, LOVE the nordstrom cardigan over the white capri's--what a great outfit!! I must find one of these cardigans!!

  7. Pink Julep - thanks!
    Pamela - thank you :) It is so British there I thought LOL would be fun :)
    Lisa - thanks so much!
    Sassy in the South - I bought maybe 2 months ago? But saw it there more recently - maybe a month ago - and it was still hanging in the front, not back to the sale rack yet - though with all the FP promos I think FP is selling through faster. There were 1 or 2 other colors too.
    Janna - I agree - I have been wearing metallic - silver or gold - so much this summer.
    mrs.anketell - thanks! The ruffly tank is pretty new though I couldn't find online when I wrote the post. It was my first time wearing - you may still be able to find in store.

  8. ALL are great looks! I've also been getting into the dress over short leggings look. So comfy :)

  9. Fabulous!
    Love the Empress and Bengal Lounge...looking forward to more.
    I love the ruffled front detail on the tank too..

  10. Every outfit looks fantastic. Loving that last cami on you, especially the colors.
    what camera do you use for your pictures? Thanks!

  11. Thank you so much everyone for stopping by and the nice comments! I recently found the LOFT ruffle top on final sale for $12.88 and picked up the navy (86852142) and a brighter blue (86851411) - those are the #'s for size small in those colors if anyone wants to do an online search to find in store :)
    Bellamama - thanks! I use a Panasonic DMC-ZS3 Lumix. It has all the features- good zoom/video etc I want but easy to use and reasonably priced.
