Amongst the hustle and bustle of the city, I often forget how good it feels to occasionally get away for a weekend. That’s why I decided to drive myself up from Vancouver to the Okanagan: to the valley of vineyards, nature, farmers’ markets and that easy-going lifestyle feel. It couldn’t have been a more perfect way to say goodbye to summer and to welcome in that fresh autumn breeze.

Personally, as much as I love summer – the beach life, late nights & patios – I always get excited for autumn as my ‘new year’. With the changing seasons comes a new outlook, new goals, and most importantly, a refreshed wardrobe; filled with layers, textures, jackets and a plethora of accessories to shield the in-coming winter breeze.

So this impromptu shoot, which took its setting in the most beautiful lavender farm in Peachland, B.C., is an ode to summer – to loose layers; summer whites; cool cottons; and (sadly!) fresh summer wine.

I can feel the change of seasons in the cooling air, shorter nights & falling leaves. Disheartened to say goodbye to the summer sun, I look forward to ‘New Year‘ and what it will bring.
