Look of the Week - Derby Reach

Our shoot the other day ended with my photographer and I both covered in mosquito I sincerely hope it was worth it! There is a long winding trail call the Fort-to-Fort Trail, which hugs the Fraser River near Fort Langley. There is a great park there called Derby Reach, which is great for an adorable picnic by the water. If you follow along the trail from there as we did, you find this abandoned skeleton of a barn you'll see in the photos below. I am very much not a fan of spiderwebs and hopping around the barn was somewhat uncomfortable...

I would recommend wearing an outfit like this somewhere along the mediterranian, maybe in Monte Carlo..a nice wide-brimmed white hat would be a perfect touch. I forgot to bring mine along for this shoot, but if I'm ever in the area, I'll have it ready :)
Sometimes we realize we have to much black and white in our wardrobes. It's easy to throw in one colourful item into your outfit, and it makes a world of difference!
I must also point out that Value Village is a great place to find fabulously vintage shoes, which is where I acquired these black, white and grey beauties below. And only 8 dollars! Too tempting to pass up! I suggest you take a peek sometime if you haven't before.

One last thing, I should point out the skirt I'm wearing belonged to my mom, and I have since shortened the hemline to make it a little more modern. It's something you can do at home really easily and BAM! you gain a new skirt at no cost! I've taken lots of stuff that my mom and nana and neighbour have given me and reworked them to make them fit my wardrobe. You'll see more of it in the coming weeks!
