To feel excitement in the morning is awesome! My new Fendi kicks were in their box waiting for me to take them for a spin. Together we were about to venture out on an urban exploration.

There are days when I want to drive very fast and fly over the highways, into the forest, and hit the hot springs. On others, sailing in the harbour is such a rush with the wind in my hair and the spray hitting my face. Today though, climbing my building will take me somewhere quiet and alone where I can do pretty much whatever I wish.

Always aware of the sun and the damage it can do to my skin, I grab my Christian Dior Atelier hat and Fixative ‘ Chou Chou’ sunglasses. I want to see my world from the top. To stand and stretch and see the how tiny everything is from the penthouse rooftop. To see if I can see the Shangri-la, Vancouver’s tallest building. If you have ever had lunch on the patio, you know that the Black Truffle pizza is TDF.

I shield my shoulders with my fave GDCS crop hoodie and put some water in my new leather Fendi mini-pack. A great size for this type of local exploring. It holds just enough.

When I picked out these FRAME white jean shorts I remembered reading a piece in Refinery29 on the ‘Summer Underbutt Trend’ and thought that not only was it funny but these shorts are a perfect length. Just the right cut and enough stretch to make climbing easy.

The stairs were steep and the city swirled a little but I completed my challenge and am rewarded with a 360 view. I can see the North Shore Mountains and that little ramen place with the excellent take-out. Oh, and just like that, I am craving noodles again!

Ciao, Aixa
