I can finally knock Canada off my list of countries I’ve never been to! My parents & I took a cross country road trip (I’m covering it in a future post) from Atlanta to Seattle & stopped in Victoria, British Columbia on our second to last day! Victoria is SUCH a beautiful city! It was great to tour the English styled buildings, walk by the harbor, & take pictures in front of all the flowers (Victoria is known as the city of gardens). On our second day in Victoria, we went to the Butchart Gardens & were blown away by the amount of blooms there! I loved that they had so many separate gardens (Japanese garden, Italian garden, rose garden, etc.) Definitely recommend checking out this place if you’re ever here! For my outfit I wanted to go with plain patterned clothing since I knew we were going to be surrounded by so many colorful flowers! Every piece I’m wearing is a big staple in my wardrobe! I felt so confident in this outfit!thumb_DSC03487_1024thumb_DSC03509_1024thumb_DSC03575_1024thumb_DSC03457_1024thumb_DSC03549_1024thumb_DSC03502_1024thumb_DSC03547_1024thumb_DSC03538_1024thumb_IMG_3613_1024thumb_IMG_3650_1024thumb_IMG_3752_1024thumb_DSC03479_1024thumb_DSC03496_1024thumb_DSC03503_1024thumb_DSC03513_1024thumb_DSC03518_1024thumb_DSC03524_1024thumb_DSC03580_1024thumb_DSC03581_1024

After exploring Butchart Gardens, we went to lunch at The Commons. I loved the interior of this place!thumb_DSC03584_1024

The Fairmont Empress Hotel is a staple hotel of Victoria and is so large and incredible from the outside!thumb_DSC03587_1024

We spent the rest of the afternoon walking around the harbor and noticed this really cool “Welcome to Victoria” sign designed out of flowers!thumb_DSC03597_1024thumb_DSC03598_1024thumb_IMG_3608_1024

British Columbia Parliament Building- This truly reminded me of the Berlin Dome in Germany. Absolutely stunning.thumb_DSC03639_1024

After a full day, we got on the ferry and returned back to Port Angeles to finish exploring Washington and Seattle! Can’t wait to share the whole trip with you guys in a future post!thumb_DSC03651_1024
