Houndstooth

I ventured out to Fort Langley for the first time recently, which is a little ridiculous considering the fact that it's the birthplace of B.C. and not even an hour's drive away from Vancouver. I really should make the effort to leave the city sometimes!

After wandering around the main street, we happened upon a canoe relay race down by the water - complete with silly tasks like catching pumpkins dropped off a bridge and running across the sand with a wine glass balanced on a paddle. As you can imagine, it was quite entertaining...

  5. I love the mini houndstooth print... it gives an added bit of dimension to the outfit.

    I think your cheeky smirk is enough personality for these photos, though! :)

  21. @Niki They are pretty comfortable though start to hurt if I'm doing an excessive amount of walking. Not sure if I need to break them in more though!
