Sun by the Sea


My favorite way to spend a Sunday is to fix a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit and yogurt, then head to the sea to soak up some much needed Vitamin D. I feel fortunate to live in Victoria where I am surrounded by quaint little seaside villages. There is nothing that can clear your mind quite like taking a deep breath of fresh ocean air. Coffee in hand, I wandered through the streets looking in all of the specialty shops. It was lovely to see everyone outside enjoying the sun!

Before I left the house this morning, I sewed the pink shorts I was wearing. I've only been sewing for a few months and it's very rewarding to be able to wear something I've sewn! I picked up the fabric from the discount bin for $2/meter. I only used about half of it, so these shorts cost me a whopping $1 to make! They were incredibly simple to sew and I will be putting up a DIY in the next few days so you all can make some pretty shorts this summer! I hope to make a few more pairs in floral prints in the days to come. Trust me, if I can do it, anyone can! xx









Tank - H&M
Shorts - My Design
Sunnies - Ray Ban
Watch - Christian Dior


Hope you've enjoyed your weekend as much as I have!

Love,
C

  1. My first sewing project that didn't fail was a bikini for a trip to Mexico with my family when I was 13! I didn't use a pattern and my fashion designer mom was really proud...

    I did make the popsicles. I ordered mine off amazon.com but you can get them at 99cent stores and even supermarkets during the summertime.

    I find that it's better to add a bit of jam or honey to the yogurt first, and chopped nuts don't get soggy as opposed to muesli if you want some crunch!

    Good Luck xx Sacha
