chambray all the way

dress c/o // bag // shoes (old - similar) // sunnies

It is no secret that I love sundresses, I mean what girl doesn't? They are comfy, flattering, and easy peasy to throw on and head out the door! When this gorgeous chambray blue and white embroidered dress came to the door I immediately fell in love. The long sleeves are so cute but most of all I love the waist line that flares out a little on the bottom. Seriously, THE most flattering dress I own. I was afraid maybe it would look a little boxy but not. at. all!

This dress is under $50 and would look perfect with a bold red lip for the 4th of July! Since I am here in Canada we will be celebrating Canada Day on the 1st of July wearing our red and white... no blue this year!

sundress on a country road

dress // hat // shoes c/o // ring (old - similar)

Happy Wednesday, this week has been flying by for me! We have been staying super busy with the home build still going on (promise I will get a full post up soon! until then follow along on instastories!) we are spending every free moment we have working at it. The crazy thing about being so far north is that our summer nights are incredibly long. We still have full day light at 9:30 or 10:00 at night... what! Something we are totally not used too and it throwing our game way off!

On a fashion note, I bought this dress as I was leaving Arizona at Target for $29.99! I was so in love with the soft pink color of the material and the ruffled cold shoulder sleeves that it instantly stole my heart. For 30 bucks, I couldn't possibly say no!

where the wildflowers grow

When moving to Canada we knew there would be a few adjustments we would need to make. As much as we feel Canada is the same as the U.S., it is not. For starters, Canada has colorful money so we never get our bills mixed up! Second, we have different holidays, such as an extra day for Easter Monday, Thanksgiving is in October not November, and we get Boxing Day which is the day after Christmas. Finally the biggest adjustment for us when moving, especially from Arizona where it is sunny and hot 360 days a year, was weather. We now get 4 amazing seasons which also means we need 4 seasons of clothing and more importantly we need more than just sandals and flip flops!

Arriving in Spring this year, our wardrobes needed some updating. We still need to keep up with everyday life even if it happens to be raining or wet outside. Insert Rainbows, umbrella's, and layered clothing BIG TIME!

Home is Canada!

Oh gosh, what a whirlwind the last few weeks have been! I apologize for the lack in posts, we are finally starting to get settled here in our new town. If you have been following on instagram, you know we have moved from Arizona to British Columbia, Canada last week! (if you missed the announcement post, you can read it here). 

I haven't taken the time to talk much about my personal life lately so I thought with all the down time, and lack of outfits I have been able to shoot, I would take this Friday to give the new readers and my old ones a little background on what has been going on with me. Life has sure been crazy the last few years, first off I can't believe how fast time is passing... June 2017, really?

If you are a loyal reader from the start you know I started Classic & Bubbly as an outlet from my then day job. During the 6 years I have had C&B I've been able to start my own Photography company, Stesha Jordan Photography and take Classic & Bubbly on full time. It has seriously been a dream! Being behind the lens and in front, I have loved every minute. C&B turned more fashion and beauty related as I continued through the years. 3 years ago, I met Stephen who had a beautiful 4 year old daughter, Sofia. Fast forward to now, we are married (celebrated our 1st anniversary in April!) and now have recently moved, the three of us and our pups, to British Columbia, Canada. 

Hoping to keep up with C&B as much as I used too as a single gal has been more of a struggle than I was expecting. With an active 7 year old full time and two pups running the house, high heels and purses have had to take a bit of a back burner. I am hoping to bring more lifestyle and the family to C&B to share as much as possible, or as much as Stephen and I think is appropriate. Life has changed here for me, A LOT, so naturally to keep authentic the blog has and will be changing too!

We decided to make the move back to my hometown in the Okanagan Valley in BC as soon as we got married. Wanting to give our children the BEST childhood possible which was just not happening in Arizona. The stars alined for us in so many ways, honestly our dream we spoke about each night never really seemed to be possible. Until it was! Then, everything moved fast, 4.5 months fast. From the date we sent in our application to the residency visa's in hand for both Stephen and Sofia. Life as we knew it was about to get good, real good!

We landed in the Okanagan on May 24th, the best day ever! We drove to The Farm, where I grew up as a child and where my grandfather (who has now passed it down to my father) still owns 20 acres. It was such an amazing day with laughter, photos, fun, excitement, and love. I will never forget that day! (photos at bottom from the arrival day. I am not sure who is happier on The Farm...Sofia, Levi or Coors.... all of them just run until they drop!)

Other exciting news that I am going to be incorporating into my posts is.... we are building a house!  You guessed it, on The Farm! If you follow on snap (SteshJordan) you have probably seen the updates. We are SO so excited to have our own little country farm house on an old dirt road. Until the house is ready we are staying with my mom (insert craziness) but we wouldn't have it any other way!

So there you have it, HOME is Canada! We are so excited to be here. As we walk the fields daily  we think how lucky we are to have it. I will keep these updates coming, I know lots is changing around here but all for the BEST! 

ps. this sweatshirt was a gift from my soul sister and cousin when we arrived home as a welcome home gift. It is Canadian made by a company called Peace Collective!
