Style Bee - August Vibes

August Vibes


I’m a bit late getting to my August recap but in all fairness it was the busiest month so far this year. August was a whirlwind of travel, celebrations and new experiences. For a serious homebody like myself, it was a lot to take in but really good for me to get out of my comfort zone.

The weather was unseasonably cool which was a huge disappointment for most but a major relief for me. As I’ve mentioned before, me and hot weather don’t really jive. Here are a few of the outfits I shared this month.

Each month Style Bee’s readership grows a bit more but this month broke all records so far and I definitely owe a big thank you to Refinery29 for including me on their list of How Instagram’s Best Dressed Do Summer! I was floored with excitement upon seeing the article and so honoured to be in such fabulous company. See the article here. And yes, I took a screenshot, just in case they realized I was way out of my league and decided to replace me with someone much cooler.

August was a month of firsts for sure. None the least of which was my first trip ever to Las Vegas. The occasion was my friend Katy’s bachelorette and we took the town by storm or rather by stiletto. It was every bit as audacious, outrageous and amazing as I had imagined. We saw Britney Spears, drank our weight in champagne and danced (with our shoes off) until the wee hours of the night.

The following weekend was the wedding of Dave’s brother Mike to his longtime love Courtney, which was an absolute delight. I had way too much fun to even think about my phone or photos. But now I do wish I had more shots of that lovely day.

Fast forward through a couple weeks of insane deadlines, presentations, 100 trips to and from the city and about 12,000 emails and suddenly we’re at the end of the month, on a plane to San Francisco. The trip this time was for my friend Katy’s wedding taking place at the incredible San Francisco City Hall followed by an epic dinner and dance party at the Palace Hotel. The wedding celebrations started on Friday and lasted (intermittently) until Monday morning. Every part of it was incredible and a wonderful chance to celebrate and spend time with friends. My lovely friend Katy, has never looked more beautiful or happy and I’m so honoured that I got to stand by her throughout the weekend.

It was my third time to San Francisco but my first time visiting with Dave. He’s a wonderful travel buddy and the ultimate wanderer (actually though, he’ll walk for 10 miles without a bother). We didn’t have a lot of time to explore so we let our noses and stomachs lead us and it was the perfect way to take some of the gorgeous city in. I was instantly enamoured with all the incredible houses and even more so by the tiny but mighty succulent gardens that were seemingly every ten steps. I also made Dave stop and pose in front of the best blue walls.

September looks much more local, which is fine by me, I’m trying to get on top of work and really dig into some big ideas I have for the blog and the year ahead. Stay tuned and thanks so much for following along!
