Always Astoria

With only a few days left in Vancouver before my move to Calgary (mentioned here), my days have been a mix of enjoying the last bits of summer, spending time with friends, and... packing (ugh). Turns out it's incredibly difficult to condense an overflowing closet into only one suitcase!

In other unrelated news, this post features my first JewelMint purchase: the Always Astoria Necklace. I first saw it on Chelsea and then Rae, and figured I could use a silver-toned necklace since most of mine are gold. I love the industrial vibe and can see this necklace going with all sorts of different outfits.

Shirt: Zara / Silk Shorts: Wilfred (Aritzia) (similar) / Bag: Marc By Marc Jacobs (here)
Wedges: Nine West / Necklace: JewelMint / Sunglasses: Vogue (here)

  2. Love your Zara top - so pretty! Packing for a long trip is practically impossible for me - there's too many "what-ifs" and I end up packing the whole house LOL! Hope you have a nice time in Calgary - can't wait to see your pics there!

  3. Such a pretty outfit Alison! Love the necklace - I still have yet to purchase from Style/Jewel/ShoeMint but after seeing so many bloggers wearing such beautiful items it's way too tempting.

  4. I HATE packing! I couldn't imagine trying to pack for a 4 month trip in one suitcase! That's crazy! That necklace is really fabulous and you look so chic!

  6. I can't believe you're already moving to Calgary! It'll be an exciting change I'm sure. Good luck with the packing. Moving is never fun and not being able to bring it all makes it even harder!

  9. Good luck with the big move. Don't pack too much, you have to leave room for anything you might buy while you're there!
