Happy Canada Day!

Heyy Everyone!
Happy Canada Day! For those of you who are Canadian, enjoy all the fireworks. Wear lots of white and red, this is what I plan on wearing today:



I plan on wearing it with a red shirt underneath, so that the red shows from the holes in the back of the shirt. If you would like to know how I made it just let me know.
The first of July always feels like it is the start of summer for me. It is when the weather starts to warm up and everyone gets into summer mode. This year my family and I kicked off summer with a trip to Mexico, with a couple other families. It was nice to lie out on the beach and read a good book, just relax.

I read Twilight it was amazing. I really enjoyed it and I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the series. I really want to see the movie as well.

In the ocean there were lots of fish just swimming around, and they came right up to you. There had been rumors earlier in the week of their being a shark in the water, but it didn't stop me from swimming in the ocean. One day while we were swimming I saw this grey fish (it was about 50 cm in length) and at first I thought I imagined it, however after a few other people saw it, I knew it was real. I first we all thought that it was a small shark, but upon closer inspection I am pretty sure it was just a really big fish, like a tuna or something. Anyway that was my interesting story of my trip.

Unfortunately while we were away the camera broke, so I have no pictures (luckily the people we went with took pictures for us, but we have yet to get them). So since my camera is broken, and I don't know when it is going to be fixed there will be no personal pictures until I get a new one(the pictures of my top are old, I had them saved on my computer).

Seeing as its Canada Day, I have to post about a Canadian Designer. I choose Teenflo, which the name sounds like a Teen Magazine but the clothes are very nice. Okay so I just read the About Us section on their website, and apparently it started in Paris, but the head office is in Canada. Now I'm confused. Okay so Charles Le Pierres and his wife, Judy Richardson, who is Canadian, bought the rights to Teenflo and brought it to Canada and the United States. However they call it a Parisian Label on the site, so I guess it is up to you to decide. I am going to say that because Judy Richardson is Canadian and the Head Office is in Canada that it can be considered a Canadian Designer. Anyway you probably just want to see the clothes so here are my favourites:
I love the neckline of this dress, and the big bangles.
Its grey and menswear inspired :D I really like the vest and the shoes.
I love the colour of this purple top.
The print on this dress is fantastic. I love it with the grey tights.
This plum coloured coat is a great way to add colour to your wardrobe. I love the Peter Pan collar.
I love the print on this skirt, and the volume it has.

I love the simplicity of this dress.

I hope you all have a good Canada Day. I will post again soon.
Love,
Belle
