I spent my weekend laughing with dear friends, going to the symphony and listening to records I bought in NY (La Bamba, The Temptations, General Public). The weekend’s festivities may be over but the goodness continues…
The last of four outfits I styled for Jillian Harris is up on her blog! I think this retro babe on a bike look might be my favourite one on her. Who can resist the vintage head scarf & bicycle with basket combination? Adorable.
I can’t reiterate enough how incredible it was to work on this project. Jillian is exceedingly photogenic and happy, and the photos below attest to Janis Nicolay‘s photographic genius.
Today’s retro bike babe outfit, plus the boho chic outfit Jillian featured 2 weeks ago, are below. Which of the 4 outfits is your favourite? Smart, high tea, boho chic or retro bike babe?

It’s a holiday today and we are on the cusp of Summer in one of the world’s most beautiful cities. I’m feeling pretty lucky today.
My work situation ain’t too shabby either; my colleagues make me laugh all day long in a great work environment and I have personal projects that keep me challenged and inspired when I’m not crunching numbers at my desk.
Case in point: the photo shoot I am sharing today, which I alluded to in an earlier post. Some background: I was approached by Jillian Harris, host of Love It or List It Vancouver, to style a Spring photo shoot with her and all-star photographer, Janis Nicolay. Saying no to this would be like saying no to rum slushies at Third beach on a sunny day.
To stay true to Jillian’s style, we opted for preppier looks, complemented by an abundance of colour and prints. Every outfit was very distinct yet still very her. Working with Jillian and Janis could not have been easier. Nor sweeter! They are lovely. And so are the photos.
Ps. Check back soon for part 2. Woo!
