SUMMER, IS THAT YOU?

Outfits

Shirt: Aritzia / Jeans: Citizens of Humanity / Shoes: Timberland

Anyone ever have those days where you are just ridiculously happy? Like, way too happy? And you walk around smiling like a total idiot? Yes well, that is me right now. 

It is likely the fact that the rainy days here in Vancouver are becoming fewer and far between. Thank god for that. Summer is coming and it’s going to be great.

Short update today, but will talk soon!

LACEY LOVE

Lifestyle

Dress: Honey Punch / Shoes: Stuart Weitzman

When I tried this dress on in the store, I thought, “oooohhh so pretty and chic! I could definitely wear this to a wedding this summer.” Promptly marching my butt up to the cashier I bought the dress + about 14 other things. (Shopaholic, anyone??) In hindsight after looking at these photos, the dress is still very cute and I love it but Vegas would be a more appropriate place to wear it. ? I most certainly underestimated the level of see-through it has going on and the very deep V in the front. Regardless, who could be mad about an excuse to go to Vegas? Not me. That’s who.

Ok totally RANDOM rant, but have you guys noticed how EVERY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM EVER now has “live stories”? We are talking WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat (obviously.) This is sooooo unbelievably unneccesary and nobody is using the feature on any platform other that Instagram and Snapchat. I blame this excessive use of stories on Facebook entirely, becasue they own both Instagram and Whatsapp. We get it, you tried to buy Snapchat they turned you down and now you are determined to show them their product ain’t shit by putting it in literally every single other platform you own. In a way, I respect your rage. ? BUT, let’s think about the user for a second shall we? I do nottttt need to be posting stories on all platforms I use. WhatsApp, for example, is not a social networking platform (in my opinion.) It is a messaging platform and it is not entirely relevant to have live stories on a messaging app. The following meme perfectly describes my feelings about this subject:

LOL. Can you imagine. Hilarious. So a public message from me to Facebook: STOP THIS MADNESS. Nobody wants stories on Facebook mobile or WhatsApp. Kthxbi.

Anyways, random rant. But that’s how things go around here ? Thanks for sticking around and hanging with me 🙂 Maybe you come here for the cute outfits, travel photos, and bikini pics… but sometimes you get a serious side of random ramblings. And for reading that, I love and appreciate you. ?

CANADIAN TUX

Outfits

Jacket: Zara / Jeans: Citizens / Shoes: Michael Kors

I. LOVE. CALIFORNIA.

Just wrapped up a weekend in LA and was it ever amazing. There was a sun, I saw the sun, the sun was on my face, and I was not cold. I repeat: was. not. cold.

Definitely packed as much fun as possible into this short trip… Starting with Malibu! These photos were shot just outside Malibu at “Malibu Creek State Park”, which was simply stunning. The pictures really don’t do it justice. If you are ever visiting California, or live there and haven’t been yet, definitely go check out this park. There’s a great walking trail and the further you go the more gorgeous it gets!

As for my outfit, did my best to rep Canada with a Canadian tuxedo on my American weekend. Jean-on-jean all day every day. Really into it right now haha. I especially love these Citizens I picked up at Aritzia the other week. They fit like a glove and somehow comfortably fit my bum and are still tight on the waist. It is a real struggle finding jeans that fit both my waist and rear end (really.) So super happy about this purchase. Also shout out to the Citizens team for FINALLY lowering their prices back down to $300 a pair. For a while there these went for $420 each… which in my opinion is kind of stretching it considering in a few months they will likely not be in style anymore. So yay! Back to semi-reasonable pricing 🙂

What do you think of this look? Would you rock the Canadian tux?

SILVER SURFER

Outfits

Top: Billabong /  Bottoms: Billabong

Hey guys, sharing my Hawaii vacation pics at a bit of a delay here. I went in full vacation mode — nothing more than instagram was done for a whole week! It was AWESOME. Sometimes it is great to unplug and unwind.

But baby I am back! My Oahu vacation stories are long overdue, so here we go…

To start, SURFING. Love it like crazy, and go at every opportunity possible. The first time we went in Oahu (see my last post) it was an astronomical failure. We ended up at this military beach (random?) and had to find military personnel to “sponsor” us to be allowed to rent surf boards. Honestly had never heard of something like this before so the concept was all new to us. After stalking down and bothering a couple military guys (lol) and getting them to sponsor us, we were finally out on the water. The waves were TINY (like, the smallest) and the wind was crazy. There wasn’t enough surf to actually catch anything, so we ended up drinking margaritas on the beach and eating a bunch of junk food haha. #closeenough

Anyways, found another beach a few days later and killed it! The waves were a bit bigger and the wind was minimal. Surfing is so addictive, once you get a good wave you just want to go again and again. 

If you can’t tell, slightly obsessed with surfing and know it would be a huge part of my life if I actually had the opportunity to do it at home. More Hawaii pics and stories to come!

A big thanks to my friends at Billabong for this dope suit!

SHOREDITCH LOVE

Outfits

Shoes: Michael Kors / Jeans: Citizens of Humanity / Jacket: (I can’t remember will 2x check!)

HELLO FROM HAWAII!!!!!! If you follow me on instagram (https://www.instagram.com/robynkimb/) you have already seen the obnoxious amount of pics I have been throwing up on my insta story. This place, is heaven.

Before we get to that, here are a few more snaps from London last week! Totally in love with the Shoreditch area. Most locals say it is “so over” because it is too commercialized now, which I can really understand. As soon as big brand stores come in the charm of an area has a tendency to kind of die a bit. That being said, there are still tons of gems in there. Whether it be  restaurants, clothing shops, or vintage markets… Shoreditch did not disappoint (for me, at least.) Some of the best restaurants and shopping I have had in a while.

Anyways, now I am in Hawaii and about to go surfing (hell YEAH!) Going to be like Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush, just you wait.

BARBICAN CENTRE

Outfits

Coat: Small shop in Shoreditch / Shoes: Michael Kors / Jeans: Citizens of Humanity

How cool is this location? This is called the Barbican Centre and it’s a multi-arts and conference venue for theatre, music, dance film… etc. There’s also residential apartments and offices. Such a cool area. I think it was built in the 70’s? Anyways, you would never know this is in London, a totally unique architectural look. Love it.

My jacket was found at this uber cool shop in Shoreditch, London that makes all of their apparel on site. It was the dopest. I am still having the worst buyers remorse that I didn’t pick up more stuff. It is literally killing me. The shopping in London was incredible, definitely need to do another trip over there with the sole focus of emptying my wallet. Yes, it would be 100% necessary. 😛

More photos to come! (Photos by Joe Davs)

The jetlag, is SO REAL.

Welcome to London! I’ve been waking up at 4 am, and stumbling through my days in a zombie-like haze. 

The benefit to waking up super early? HYPER EFFICIENCY. I have been getting so much work done between the hours of 4 and 6 am, it makes me think I should wake up at this time every day. Then I spend about <10 seconds logistically thinking about actually waking up at 4 am every day and oh-so-quickly retract that thought. Have to say though, am loving the extra time to get things done.

Another thing I have learned waking up this early? Apparently there are other people who go to Oxford Street and literally wait for the shops to open… like… line up…. outside the doors……. Couldn’t believe people actually do that haha. Thought I would be the only one awake so early and keen to shop. 

On that note: shopping in London makes me wonder the following things: 1) WHY IS CANADA SO EXPENSIVE? 2) WHY DOES CANADA GET NO GOOD PRODUCT? 3) WHY IS THE QUALITY OF CLOTHING SO BAD IN CANADA? All good/valid questions. If anyone can report back and let me know why the f we get the short end of the stick in the retail world that would be great.

Essentially what I am trying to say is holy lord is the shopping ever good here. And so well priced too! Even with the horrible CAD –> GBP conversion. It is insane. 

Needless to say, I shopped my little heart out yesterday with all the other early morning retail keeners. 

Going to attempt to get a bit more sleep now. Key word: attempt. Talk soon!

Lol. It snowed. And it was even more hilarious than could ever be imagined. See all those MOUNDS of treacherous snow and dangerous conditions around me? Yup. Things got crazy this week in Vancouver. The city saw an entire 1 inch of snow on Monday and totally lost their marbles. And I drank in every second of it. Pure. Gold.

 In light of my previous holiday party themed post, I wanted to continue the trend with a slightly edgier look. A velvet pant suit made for the nastiest of women. This is a great option to grab for a holiday party if you are in a slightly more badass mood than a dress will do justice. (Also ode to my girl Hillary, you worked those pantsuits!! We all hated it at first, but now I have seen the light.) Do you also dress for your mood? I do. If you see me with black nails (basically all the time these days) I am feeling like a bad betch who can’t be stopped. Seriously though… anybody else do this? hahah ?

Anyways I am stoked on this pantsuit right now, and am feeling very Hillary Clinton in it. Nasty woman to the core. 

Okay that’s enough babbling from me for one day. Enjoy your Thursday!

HOLIDAY LOOK

Outfits

Dress: WAYF / Shoes: vintage / Choker: Brandy Melville

Went out during a 30 second break in the rain to shoot this outfit, and alas, it started pouringgggg rain literally the second I was outside. So this was the only photo I could get before it got super dark from rain clouds again ?

BUT, December is here and you know what THAT means… it’s time to get FESTIVE! Holiday parties, treats, and… well… mostly treats.? December is one of my favourite months of the year. I love how the city lights up with little twinkly lights everywhere and it is all cozy. There is a potential chance of snow, which is always hilarious in Vancouver because the entire city loses it’s shit. Nobody can drive, schools close, and the national guard is brought in (this actually happened one time in Ottawa and I doubt the nation will ever forget it hahah.) Absolute mayhem. It’s great.

Since December is upon us, it is officially holiday dress season! The other day I happened upon this gorgeous wrap dress at Nordstrom. Wrap dresses are a favourite of mine, because they are super flattering and bring out them currrvvessss. All about it. Only had a few of these left when I went in, so tried to find it online for you guys but it’s not on their website 🙁

Today I am prepping for a weekend of skiing up in the mountains! So excited I can hardly contain myself ? And with that, happy Friday everybody!

Talk soon.

What have I been up to lately? Straight hermiting. All I want to do these days is stay cozied up inside and watch Gilmore Girls. Anyone else watching?? TOTALLY ADDICTED. I have set a personal challenge (aim high, friends) to crush through all 7 seasons before the new episodes launch in the end of November. This started 3 weeks ago and I have successfully binged my way through the first 5 seasons. Not sure if I am ashamed, impressed, or just overall shocked by myself. Honestly I rarely watch tv, if ever, but Gilmore Girls has me RIPPING through episodes. It’s like a sickness, some sort of Stars Hollow induced disease. The only cure? FINISH THEM. Every last episode. Then I can be done and never have to watch again. Oh and by the way, I am like 16 years late on the whole Gilmore Girls thing. I am brutally aware that everyone else watched this show at a normal pace in the early 2000s, but alas, I have only discovered it now. Better late than never?

Managed to rip myself away from Netflix for long enough to hit up brunch in my gorrrrgeous new leather jacket from Bernardo! Leather jackets are the perfect piece for fall. Just enough warmth, and great for layering. If it is possible to feel actual love a clothing item, oh baby do I feel it for this coat.

Another thing I managed to do once I shut down Gilmore Girls for a few hours? THE SEPHORA VIB SALE. Yes ladies, that darling little 20% off sale they have where I basically lose my marbles and buy all the makeup. Any of you partake this weekend? It was a good haul this year. My face = happy happy. Wallet? Not so happy. 😛

Okay so enough from me for one day. I seriously need to finish this series so I can get my life back. It has taken over. This is a phase… I swear………. Someone send food.
