Bubble Umbrella

Okay this thing is super cool yet strange all at the same time. Living in a city where it rains a lot, almost 10 months of the year mean you have to fun stylish way to stay dry.

I use to own a birdcage umbrella and it was great. It seems these folks have taken it one step further. If you click here you can order one of your very own!

My only question is how do you fit it in your purse?

I was also so excited to see that others dressed up too!

Ali in a cute blue dress, Nicole in a black blouse with matching skinny jeans, Malise in a wild zebra dress and Me.
Dusty in a vintage suit and Nathan in dress pants and shirt with stand out red tie.

Nathan and Nicole being the hot couple you are...helps when you work at H&M...right Nicole!

I'm upset that I don't have a better picture of My man, Matt, Jenn and Lindsay dresses up. This was the best I could find! Also my brother and his wife were there and they looked good but I know they are not fans of having there picture taken so I did not post one of them. Thanks to all who came and had such a great time. PS Katie we missed you!

Canucks Hockey Game!

Went to the Canucks hockey game last night against the Edmonton Oilers and it was AMAZING! Quite possibly the best hockey game I have ever been too. We won, there was a ton of fights and since we have a big rivalry with them the crowd was on FIRE!! So far this year I have not seen them lose, so they really should bring me to all their games with them!!

So I had to wear something hockey game appropriate.

Jersey: My man's from when he was 8 so Vintage
Underneath Shirt: Blue Striped Shirt from Winners
Jeans: Rewind Denim
Boots: Christmas Gift from B2

It was an amazing game! Hope this goes into a winning streak!
