Every now and then us fashion girls just want to throw on a dress and shoot some photos just for the heck of it. There’s no rhyme or reason for it, no style advice or practicality to it, but rather just an opportunity to do what we love to do: dress up.

“Smell the sea, and feel the sky. Let your soul and spirit fly.” – Van Morrison

I don’t have much to say in this one except to remind you this weekend to go find a beach, a hiking trail, anything outside and just explore!  Trust me your heart and soul will thank you. Shout out to to Sarah (@bohobraidsandblog) for snapping these pics for me while we were on our New Brunswick road trip c/o Ford Canada (read full post below).


During my road trip planning I learned there was a Black Sand Beach in Saint John! Not going to lie it kind of blew my mind a little, so I knew we HAD to go. And despite some GPS issues lol we made it (the second time around). Thank goodness Sarah was as stoked to check it out as I was lol because we TOTALLY could have thrown in the towel.

When considering what to wear for these photos I could think of nothing better than this beautiful gauzy maxi dress from Aritzia. I picked this dress up near the end of last summer (when it was on sale) so sadly it didn’t get as much use as I would have hoped. Needless to say I’m super excited the warmer weather is finally coming back around again and it’s catching a second wind! TO SHOP MAXI DRESSES FROM ARITZIA CLICK HERE.

And to catch my super fun NB Video Diary click below:

With trips to Wolfville (read my Winery Round Up here), Cape Breton X2 (watch vlog here, and the #Placetoplay event here) and Ottawa (this weekend) it’s been an amazing summer so far, and technically it’s only just beginning.

I’m really looking forward to heading to Ottawa this weekend with Porter Airlines. And in true Short Presents fashion I have a jam packed itinerary planned so be sure to tune into my Instastories and follow along!


Hope you have a great weekend! What are you up to? Also shout out to my brother Happy Birthday Buddy hope you have a great trip to Boston!

    Love the photos! Black sand is insane, happy you eventually found it! I totally agree, sometimes you just need to dress up and stick your toes in the water 🙂 xx Rox-Anne Celebrating This Life
