Reykjavik – Part 1

Last April, my sister and I decided to go on a whimsical trip to ICELAND! Iceland air had just started direct flights from Edmonton to Reykjavik, and they were decently priced, so we decided to go, rent a car, and do the ring road of Iceland!

Iceland is a fairytale- everywhere seems so mystical! It is literately the land of elves, trolls and other creatures! I loved it – every place had something AMAZING to see.

We saw and did so much that I decided to break up my Iceland trip into a series – one for each place we went! I’m going to start with our time in Reykjavik! Possibly the best place in the world!

We stayed here for 4 days! Things you MUST DO?!?!?

– TRY SKYR! OMG…. why doesnt Canada have this! It is like a nutrition students heaven!!!!

– Go to Thingvellir national park – My sister and I drove out here (we got lost and cried a little) and spent the day hiking and exploring ! We did the GOLDEN CIRCLE – stopped and hiked at the park (where they used to hold meetings!), went to visit the Geysers! And then we went to Gulfoss! (foss= waterfall, gul= golden ; therefore, it is the golden waterall!)

-Go snorkelling &/or scuba diving at the Silfra Fissure! AMAZING experience!! The water is the most pure in the world because it travels 100km from a glacier through porous rock to the fissure (which separates the north american continent from the european continuent!). This was amazing, you could drink the water freely! And!!!! They film movies there – like NOAH!

-Try their lamb hot dogs (yuuuuuuummmm)!

– BLUE LAGOON! plan to have a day here because it is just sooo freaking amazing!

-Go caving! We went and did some moderate caving (there was some crawling and lying on your stomach involved) I almost had a heart attack but in the end I loved it!

-Explore Reykjavik! there are a lot of cool cafes (Laundromat cafe is awesome!). They also have alot of interesting and fun museums!

-Try traditional Icelandic food! We tried whale and puffin! Trying baby horse was too much for us and we declined! (The waiter tried to flirt with us to get us to try! No thank you!!!!)

I want to go back to Reykjavik more than anything in the world! It is AMAZING! So beautiful! ugh!!!

Prepare for an overload of photos! ❤

Floral Fun

Hey there beautiful people! I got this dress from Old Navy for a steal! It amazes my how many sales they have – practically a new one every week! They are already a very reasonably priced store, so the sales make it even more tempting. I never really used to shop at Old Navy, but this year their style has got me coming back for more! Since I am a student- I am always looking for a bargain and you definitely will be able to find one here!

I am kind of obsessed with pink & floral (can you tell?) and when I saw this dress on sale it was now or never! This dress is so versatile – I styled it with a tied white button down to make it look a bit more like a skirt. Jean jacket – or not, it is a perfect summer dress – think picnics, walks along the river, and farmers markets!

Enjoy the photos, the outfit (and some alternatives) are linked below!

Easy Breezy

Walking on the beach at sunset is my absolutely favorite thing. I know it is pretty cliche, but I just love it. The sound of the waves crashing and the water color sky is almost too good to be true.

This dress is the perfect easy breezy piece to wear on the beach. I love how it ties at the waist! I have had this dress for a few years and I wear it all the time – I took it to Europe last summer and it was my go-to.

Enjoy the photos below! I linked some similar dresses too, feel free to check them out! ❤

BAILANDO

Our first day in Cuba we definitely learned our lesson! After spending all day out in the sun, I was greeted with a bright red sun burn on my feet! That meant for the rest of the day, I was going to be covered up head-to-toe. The only thing I had to cover up my sunburn from the sun (it was mostly on the top of my feet, and bottom of my legs), was this black maxi dress.

I picked this dress up a while back, and it was such a great find. I love how it accentuates my waist, and the little flare at the bottom adds a slight Spanish touch. I feel like I should be doing a tango and twirling while wearing this!

Since this was post-beach, my hair is a mess and I am not wearing any makeup – I was going for an au natural look, so please excuse! 🙂 Enjoy the photos, and check out the links below for some amazing similar pieces! As well – I’ve linked this exact hat (that has been glued to my head) and some alternatives. This hat is the perfect piece for the beach OR hitting up the local farmers market.

Side note- I titled this blog post “Bailando” because at our resort, this was one of the only songs they played! I have had it stuck in my head for days now!!

Eye See You

Hola peeps! I am back from vacay and working hard at getting up to date on my blogging! I picked these joggers up from the Gap a while ago, and I was pretty unsure about them but the second I put them on I fell in love. They are so comfy and can be dressed up or down. Perfect for errands, travel, coffee, anything! I styled them with a simple sparkly tee and my go-to white jean jacket from old navy. As well, I went with some simple evil eye jewelry (necklace from a store in Greece; bracelet from Thomas Sabo). I love this look and will for sure be repeating it on those cool spring days that are bound to happen!

Boho Dress

Hey lovelies! As you can see from the snow on the ground, I am still playing catch-up with these photos! I bought this dress about 3 weeks ago and I thought it was the perfect little boho number. Quite fitting since its festival season! When I bought it, I was thinking about running around in a field at Coachella, even though I knew I would be in the library studying!

I’ve worn this dress out twice so far, and I decided to take pictures both times, just to show some versatility! What I love most about it is the flare sleeves, and the low cut back! It’ll be perfect for date night too!

Check out the photos below, and I’ve linked some of my fav boho dresses too! All are clickable!

Flower Hat

I took these photos about 3 weeks ago, when there was still a thick layer of snow on the ground (even though it was spring)! I put them off to the side for a while, and now I’m playing catch up, so I guess it is better late then never!

I picked up this sweater for about $10.00 at old navy and I was in love! Not only the price, but the material is soft, AND it is part of their spring collection. I see myself wearing it with some white shorts in the evenings this spring/summer!

I have been looking for a floppy hat for a few months now, and when I found this one, designed by Nine West, I was instantly drawn to it. I love the brown color of it, but the flowers on it made me go head over heels!

I hope you enjoy the photos! Sorry for posting them so late. I have linked the outfit, and some similar options below! Feel free to check them out – all are clickable!
