Leaving the Country to Shop

My friend Jenna and I went up to Canada on Saturday to go to H&M (we don’t have one in Bellingham) and to dinner for her Birthday. Canada is only 30 minutes north of our house, and with an enhanced license you don’t need a passport to go.  Vancouver is crazy busy, but H&M was great, cheap basics galore! We had dinner in White Rock, because Vancouver was just too crazy. We need a parking lot, we are small town girls. (:

Purchased the teal dress underneath, not the yellow tank.

Purchased lavender tank and orange cardigan

$7 basic white t’s

Cute dress, but a little too tight on the butt

Purchased this navy pocket dress…$5!!!!

This is what I wore to go shopping. The shirt is from a thrift store for $3, and the capris are from Maurices for $20

Oh and these new dressing room photos are all brought to you by my new camera (my other one finally died after heavy use for 4 years) which is this SONY Cyber-shot I debated for a long time about getting the Canon Rebel t2i that I have dreaming of, or another point and shoot. In the end I couldn’t afford both (well, I really couldn’t afford the Canon) and I decided I would use the point-n-shoot more often, so I bought it after our first wedding we worked. So far I’m really pleased. I went with the same brand and model as my old one (which was the WORLDS GREATEST POINT-N-SHOOT!!) but the much upgraded HD, 3D 16.2 version. I’ve been testing it, and I’m really pleased with how it does in natural light, low light, and even the dark. I’m still hoping to get the Canon this year, but a vacation for the husband and I might take priority.

More regular blogging will return now that I have a camera. (:
