Leather skirt/ Tie-dye scarf/ Exciting news

[Leather skirt - vintage, Tee - Primark Men's, Scarf - Unknown, Shoes - New Look]

I got some exciting news last week; My boyfriend and I are going to be moving to Canada for a year (or two if we are sucessful in reapplying next year) in July! 

We're heading to Vancouver in the second week of the month (still looking for the best deal on flights) on a working holiday visa and we are SO excited. I've lived in the UK all of my life and so to move abroad, even only for a year or so, is going to be an amazing experience. 
We love Vancouver; my boyfriend's Dad has lived out there for five years and so he has visited quite a few times & I've accompanied him twice (My post from my last visit in 2010). I am ridiculously excited to live there, but completely stressed about moving my whole life at the same time! And I will definitely keep blogging once I'm over there :)!

So, if any of you lovely people are Vancouverites I would love advice/ info on literally anything to do with the city. Best area for a mid-20s couple to apartment hunt? Favourite shops? Best restaurants? Favourite scenic spot? Any online job hunting websites that you know are useful? Anything at all would be totally appreciated! Drop me an email at shesdressingup@yahoo.com or add me on twitter! (Also anyone who has themselves participated in the IEC Canada before I'd love to hear about your experience!)

Have a beautiful weekend everyone!

  19. Oh how exciting!!! I just left my hometown of Vancouver for Toronto but will be heading back in the fall - if I had to suggest a few neighbourhoods to look to live in, I'd say the West End, Gastown and Kitsilano would all be at the top of my list. I actually just wrote out a list of must-see's for another blogger friend, I'll forward it along to you!

  21. What a great outfit! That's exciting you're moving to Vancouver. I'm all the way out in Ottawa but I've been to Vancouver before and it's beautiful :)

  22. Great outfit, I love the skirt! We used to live in Vancouver and recently moved just outside the city. It is my favorite place in the whole world! Too many recommendations to give here, but if you still need suggestions on places to stay you can email me rajthandhi(at)gmail.com.


  23. I love the pink and purple against the black and white. Also I am starting to love these leather skirts at the moment. I saw one in the shops today.

  24. All I know about Vancouver is that the whole Pacific Northwest is BEAUTIFUL and I hope you take pictures!

    P.S. That leather skirt is kickass. :)

  25. My Gosh, that sounds so exciting! Congratulations to you :) I know nothing about VA nor Canada in general really, so I hope you take lots of pictures and share all your adventures with us! x
