A day at the Art Gallery


As the Japan trip is approaching, my days are getting busier and busier. Getting through them by running from one appointment to the other isn't easy but yesterday everything was made enjoyable due to a lot of great company and an amazing location: The Vancouver Art Gallery.


 It started with a lovely lunch with Jen on the Gallery's Cafe adorable patio. She has just come back from her Europe trip, and I just had to hear all the amazing details especially about London shopping and sightseeing. Our conversations soon turned towards career choices after graduation and plans for the near future while lunching on quiches and salads. I must say she truly dressed perfectly for this wonderful location. Unfortunately I can't say the same about myself. Due to the busy schedule I opted for flats and a comfortable dress.


I'm wearing: Anna Sui for Target dress, Toms shoes, Devi Kroell bag
   
Jen is Wearing: Kensie blouse, BCBGMAXAZRIA tulip skirt, Talula Babaton cashmere cardigan (very old), H&M hat, River Island sunnies, Zara shoes, unbranded bag and mom's earrings

After lunch I met with my dearest friends, Maliheh and Jasmin who was kind enough to snap a couple of picture of the two of us. I then proceeded to check out the latest exhibitions at the gallery including the Surrealist Revolution , Jim Campbell's work as well as Vancouver based artist Ken Lum.



The day ended with dinner on the patio this time with the lovely Roshanak!
...and since I has such a strong sugar craving all day long and this chocolate pudding kept winking at me , I finally gave in and totally spoiled myself!

I like it when you and Jen hang out, you are such a fabulous duo.
I can't wait to see pictures from your trip to Japan, you must be excited since you have only a few days left till your departure.
Of course we will hang out when you arrive in Bucharest !!! Let me know when you get here, ok?
We can go to H&M too, although I highly doubt that they would bring more interesting clothes here than the ones they have in Vancouver.

Hugs Mina !!! ^ _ ^

I love that you and Jen chose such different looks for your date. Your bright red shoes were actually the first thing I focussed on when I saw these snaps- I definitely wasn't expecting them to be paired with your blue dress, but the result is really beautiful :) You must be getting so excited for Japan! How many more sleeps?
