The Frenzy

Hat, Talula. Button-up, Talbots. Shorts, Banana Republic. Flip-flops, Hollister.

I found this straw boater in a sea of fedoras and I am now one step closer to fulfilling a lifelong dream of joining/starting a barbershop quartet (as long as I can be the bass). But enough about my silly dreams! You're probably wondering how I managed to get these beach shots without any tenors or baritones lurking in the background. One word: hockey. Fanatical fans and fake fans alike were eating wings and chugging lager in pubs across the city, leaving me to enjoy this nearly private beach for a few hours. Go, Canucks?

Can I be part of your barbershop quartet, I cant sing but I do have many straw hats :)

Melissa said...

Haha! I love that you're totally disinterested in sports. I am too. Just not a big deal to me. I wanna be in the barbershop quartet too! I'll sing tenor or lead. :)

Love your casual look, especially that hat!! In Chicago, on Sundays during football season, there is no traffic anywhere!!

Lol, I like the hat! Can I join your group I want to be the soprano?? Is that possible in a all male group.. haha

You look great and I'm jealous of your beach!

Your top looks shimmery. Is it? An empty beach is nonexistent here once the sun comes out. I guess our city's teams need to play in some championships!

We got to my brother's place with a few minutes left in the game tonight. His friend who is originally from Vancouver was here. He was amazingly kind of calm. My brother warned me not to be by him when the game ended because he will not stop to consider the size of he person near him when he goes crazy. (he's around 6 feet and maybe 300 lbs) If it goes to Game 7, they're planning to head up to join the madness in the streets. And you thought the Olympics were madness!
