Whistler Weekend

Blouse: Joe Fresh / Pants: 7 For All Mankind (here) / Bracelets: Derng


It was my boyfriend's birthday this past weekend, so we headed up to Whistler for a mini getaway. I haven't been up since before the Winter Olympics in 2010 so it was interesting to see how the Village has changed... all sorts of Olympic paraphernalia to remind us of the Games.


There is still snow on the mountains and a couple of runs remain open for skiing/snowboarding. However, down at the base, the weather was quite nice so we decided to go on a "hike" around Lost Lake (the more athletically inclined among us would probably call it a "walk").


Now I'm back in the city and ready to hit the books - my Bar Exams are in 10 weeks!

  2. At least we had some good weather for you to go up to Whistler the last few weeks! It's a shame the long weekend wasn't as nice. Good luck with studying!

  9. Love the polka dot blouse! I haven't been to Whistler since before the Olympics either, looks like I'll need to make a trip up there to see what's left from the 2010 Games. Good luck studying for your Bar Exams!

    1. Totally feel the same way. It was so hot in the sun yet people were still winter sporting it up on the mountain.

    4. Aw, just missed each other! As much as I hate to say it, I actually miss law school sometimes (compared to articling/PLTC/etc.)

  23. Love how it's so sunny and you can still see the snow on the mountains. I always forget about the mountains (just not used to them) :-)

    That Joe Fresh blouse looks great on you! Did you end up buying both colors or just this one?

    Hope you had a good weekend! xo Leonie
