Shorts – Ken’s old jeans I cut up 😉
Hat – Old vintage find
I still can’t believe the luck we had with the sunshine over the weekend in Gibson’s (See our float plane journey there HERE). I mean, it’s called the Sunshine Coast but lets be honest, we are still in Canada or Rain-couver. Especially because we were attending an outdoor wedding on the Saturday, we were a little sad to see a forecast of nothing but pouring rain all weekend.
The morning of the wedding, we thought there was no way this outdoor wedding was going to happen. It rained more over night than it had in a very long time and all I could do was imagine their beautiful farm setting completely flooded. But not long before we were to leave our cabin for the ceremony, the clouds started to part. Everyone gathered near the barn where the “I do’s” were to take place, huddling under the awning, hiding from the slight sprinkle that was still coming down. I kid you not, within about 1 minute of the bride entering the barn, it stopped. AND not only that, but the sun peeked out from behind the clouds at the exact same moment they began their vows. I couldn’t believe it. All of a sudden we had beautiful sun shine and it was directly on the bride and groom! That’s got to be good luck, right?!?
I don’t think we saw another drop of rain all day. It was perfect.
Ok, so I know we are out in the forest, but I just can’t help putting together an outdoor chic outfit. Even if we were just going for a walk and to grab a bite of lunch. You can’t beat a simple sweater, denim cutoff and gumboot outfit. Even Ken liked this outfit! He thought the boots were pretty darn cute.
This sweater was actually another vintage find from my last minute thrift pick up I spoke about in my last POST. It’s by Nasty Gal, which is a brand I’ve known about for ages but never bought anything from. I initially thought it was meant to be worn the other way around – with the V in the front… Maybe it is mean to be warn in the front, but I much prefer it in the back. Who knows. With the V in the back, it’s still cute and playful, but doesn’t show all the goods 😉
I apologize if I’ve been over doing it with the vintage finds – I know it can be a little frustrating seeing items on a blog and not be able to buy the same thing. But the truth is, my blog is about what I REALLY wear. I’m a vintage addict and I love a good buy, so more often than not, one or more of the items I’m wearing are vintage finds. Anyone else out there as vintage crazy as I am?
