I must say that I'm super happy that I have this Monday and Tuesday off as I woke up still feeling extremely exhausted from this long, eventful weekend. First off, on Friday I started off the day with a fabulous high tea date with a girlfriend at Neverland Tea Salon in the Kitsilano area. I personally felt that it was one of my favourite high tea experiences as the service was wonderful, the food was delicious and innovative, and the tea was absolutely delicious. My girlfriend and I ended up taking almost two hours to finish our tower of treats and tried out four different teas. Never fear: I took a bunch of pictures and will be posting them soon along with a short review of the place!
After high tea, we shopped a little (without actually buying anything to our surprise) until it was time for me to meet up with the birthday boy. After grabbing a table at Thierry Patisserie in downtown Vancouver with my boyfriend, we shared a delicious exotic fruit tart and spanish latte to start off our weekend together. Unfortunately, we ill-planned our time expenditure in between meeting up at Thierry and our dinner reservation at Miku Restaurant at 8:30 pm. As a result, we ended up bumming about the Coal Harbour seawall for about three hours before we had some appies at Hapa Izakaya near Waterfront. When we finally got to Miku and met up with the rest of the birthday party, the boyfriend and I shared the most delicious meal of seafood goodness: hamachi sashimi salad, a platter of aburi premium nigiri, and the amazing "Coal Harbour seafood platter" (jumbo prawns, scallop ceviche, tuna, mussels, clams, oysters, etc.). And, of course, I paid.
Maxi Dress, Hat & Necklace // H&M
Shoes // Aldo
Bag // Tory Burch
While that day in itself sounds exhausting, I haven't even mentioned what I did yesterday! But I will leave that rambling story for another post coming soon. For this day's outfit, I wore yet another item from my recent H&M raiding. While I love the comfortable feeling that you get from wearing a maxi dress, even the XS size of this dress was much too long for me. Since I wasn't able to get it hemmed before Friday, I was forced to tie a knot at the bottom instead so that I could make it through the entire day without tripping!
How did you spend your weekend?
