On The Road // Vancouver

Our vacations of summers past used to include far flung destinations on different continents where it was best to avoid street meat and few people spoke english.  Fast-forward to life with a toddler and a growing business and our vacations have become a lot more domestic!   Two weeks ago, though, I found myself in Vancouver styling a shoot for Ergobaby– which is such a beautiful brand inside and out, by the way.  I can’t recommend them enough!

These were my 36 pieces.  I wore the whole first row (items 1-5) the most by far.  You just can’t go wrong with a great tee.  This was my capsule from May …
