LITTLE WHITE POLKA DOT DRESS

If you follow along on Instagram ( click HERE to follow), you would know that I returned from my trip about a week ago. Since I returned as an engaged lady, most of my spare time has been consumed with researching wedding organizers, photographers and venues. So, I haven't had much time to sort through all my trip pictures yet. 

To keep to blog from running completely dry, I thought I'd share some pictures I had taken before the trip until I find the time to organize my internet life, haha. I do post several times a day on both my instagram and my snapchat (username : aandreaclare), so make sure to follow along there to see some behind the scenes wedding, food and life stuff.

Lately, I can't stop buying dresses. Especially as the summer weather is in full force ( we are currently in the middle of a heat wave here in Vancouver).  Dresses are that no-brainer, throw on piece that makes getting dressed in the morning stress free. A one piece outfit!

I really love this white and polka dot one I picked up from Sheinside recently. The bow at the neck is that extra feminine detail that makes it perfect for a date night and the light, airy fabric will be perfect for the hot summer evenings.  It would also be perfect for a bride to wear to an engagement party or rehearsal dinner!

Since I spent my first week in London exploring the city on my own, I was so excited for Ken to wrap up with school so we could finally enjoy a date night out. As soon as he finished his last exam, I raced out to Regents Park to meet him for a late lunch of pizza and beer.  It was so nice to finally spend sometime together, as an engaged couple, without Ken having to worry about school.  After lunch, we headed home to finish up some last minute chores in preparation for our flight out to Italy the next day (more to come on our travel experience, it was madness).  In the evening, we had a few more celebratory drinks and small tapas around Portobello Market and spent the night chatting away. We had to be up at 2:30 in the morning to catch our flight, so we made sure to make it an early dinner to ensure we'd get a few hours rest before our travels.

I also vlogged the whole day, which you can watch HERE or subscribe to my YOUTUBE channel HERE so you get notifications of future uploads :)

Our Engagement Video Diary



If you caught my last post, you'll know I recently got engaged to my long time boyfriend and high school sweetheart. I filmed part of our first day as an engaged couple so we could have something to look back on. We've only been engaged a few weeks and it's already a lot of fun to watch back :) Hope you enjoy :)

I'M ENGAGED!



9 years in the making (not including our puppy love high school romance which was 11 years ago? - CRAZY!) and we are at last engaged!  I must say, he totally shocked me.  I actually thought he had something up his sleeve for when he returned home in the summer.  I'm so glad I was wrong!

The big question happened at home, in his apartment, in London before we headed out to see Peter Pan at the open air theatre in Regents Park.  Luckily we had perfect summer weather that night because he planned a lovely picnic with champagne in a grassy area before the show.  It was simple, perfect and I couldn't be happier.

I'm still in shock I have this ring on my finger! Not sure when that'll sink in...
