Vancouver Weekend {OOTDs, Thierry & Taylor Swift}

Last weekend we went to Vancouver, BC. My nine-year-old is a big Taylor Swift fan... I found out too late about her tour and the Tacoma Dome show was sold out... but I was able to get five seats for the Saturday show in Vancouver, so North we trekked...

Of course we took the opportunity to do a little shopping at Zara and Rocky Mountain Chocolates, as well as Thierry, which I found out about from Rose in her blog post here.

We stayed at The Fairmont downtown and were able to walk to the show at Rogers Arena in the beautiful weather.

Here are some pics from the weekend:

what I wore to dinner (Zefferelli's) and the concert:
Project Alabama tunic (from Anthropologie), Target slip under, Old Navy denim, nude patent flats from Las Scarpa Paris (two yrs ago)

(My oldest couldn't believe she was there and was so happy she cried.
Which made me cry.

Happy Friday!



  1. Looks like a fun trip!
    It's always frun to shop in another come north we go south!

    I'll add Thierry to my list of places to go next!

  2. So fun! my niece went to the concert in Orange County. Love the hotel - and you look fab.

  3. It's sweet that you cried, I would have done the same thing! I remember years ago watching my daughter be *SO* excited to have Barney at her birthday & it made me cry...*sniff* It's great to be a mom though, isn't it? :)


  4. hostess - so true! Theirry was lovely.
    suburban mom - thank you!
    lottie - Yes it is :) xo

  5. Great to see you enjoyed yourself! I hope you got the chance to meet him... he is very personable.

  6. Looks like a great trip! We stayed over at Fairmont on our last trip to Vancouver too :)

  7. Hi Sweet tea and & Seattle! I love your style and read your blog. I have the same top from Anthropologie, but haven't worn it because I don't have a cami that looks right to go under. Can you tell me which target cami you bought please? Thanks!

  8. Kaylee - thanks so much! It is actually sort of a satin-y, short slip that I bought at Target last year. The tag says "Gilligan & O Malley intimates", style #248678. Maybe they will do something similar again this year - check out the lingerie dept. for short slips since this Anthro top seems to need something longer than the usual cami :)

  9. Rose - I didn't but we enjoyed the visit - thank you for posting about it.
    Tanya - lovely place! :)
