Sunday, April 19th

Vest-Ahlens

Sunday, April 19th, it’s sunny and beautiful in Montreal and I feel great! There’s no better feeling (Ok, yes they are) then to feel everything back to life during spring days. Everyone is out enjoying the first days of spring warmth and sunshine, the first flowers are popping out and buds spring.

Sunday is the perfect day to wear casual clothes like what I’m wearing in these pictures. My favourites relax fit trouser from Max Mara paired with a sweatshirt, a long blazer and a pair of sneaker, that’s the way I feel the more of myself. And, you what’s the outfit that you feel the most of yourself in it?

Kaftan

Kaftan-Urban-Renewal

In this post, I told you about the way I wanted to wear my new Kaftan, that’s the way! It’s exactly how I’ve seen it the minutes I saw this piece at Urban Outfitters. It’s great when a simple piece inspired you immediately, it’s the best!

There’s still snow on the ground in Montreal, but I’m positive that after this week, there will no longer. I have to admit that I’m fed up of that snow, it’s now dirty and I just want to see some green!! Do you have project for the Easter week-end? I have, like every year I will be at Quebec city, see you there for my next post! xxx

Girl Crush Daria Werbowy

Ah Daria, she is so beautiful, she has an “je ne sais quoi”, she’s definitely my girl crush of the past two years! The time I find her the most beautiful is when she has her”I woke up like this” look,  she looks so natural and mysterious.

When I was showing her pictures to my boyfriend yesterday, I learned more about her. First, she’s from Canada, I didn’t know about that, we are from the same Country 😉 Shewas  born in Ukraine and her parents moved here when she was 3 years old. She’s 31 years old, and since 2010, she is ranked no. 6 on The World’s Top-Earning Models with estimated earnings of $4.5 million. Not bad right for a girl who started this job to pay her school?

These pictures are from the editorials she did for Mango the past two years. I like the way they use her natural beauty to promote their collection. And you, who is your girl crush?

Spring Shopping!!

Antropologie

Antropologie

I went window shopping yesterday, I do this sometimes to give me inspiration and to see what’s new on the market! It was that kind of day that everything you have tried fits well, but you can’t spend your money on clothes. Yeah it was that kind of day.

I have to say that the new Studio collection form H&M is beautiful as the trends collection, I was in love with so many pieces. I also found a lot of beautiful pieces at Antropologie, and Zara of course! I finally bought a dress at Urban Outfitters from their Urban Renewal line. This collection is handcrafted in Philadelphia and made from vintage, dead stock and surplus materials from around the world and I find it really cool!! This is the dress I bought  in Khaki! I pictured myself wearing it with my New Balance sneakers and my Filippa k long vest.

Here are some of the pieces I’ve tried. My favourites is the khaki skirt from H&M and the Isabel Marant inspired kimono top from Zara

Have you started your spring shopping yet?

#Staycation

Staycation, most of the time it means vacation when you don’t have the money to go somewhere else. It’s my case this week  since I’m keeping my money for my next trip in October.  So here are some tips to enjoy that time with yourself in your hometown!

  1. Grocery

Before starting your staycation, the first day go do your groceries and get everything you will need for the week. Buy the food you like and don’t forget your favourite snack and of course some wine bottles! Plan, so you don’t have to get out for that during the week.

2. Treat yourself

This is the perfect time to take a day at a spa, treat yourself and take an extra treatment, whether is a massage or another body treatment!  Bring your favourite book and enjoy that moment with yourself to completely relax!

3. Treat yourself economic options

You don’t have the money to go to the spa? Then take this opportunity to go at a hair salon and treat yourself with a nice brushing, they often offer a glass of wine while you have your hair being washed, a good compromise right? You can have this for less than 20$ in most of hair salon. Another option is to get a manicure/pedicure, again just a little treat for yourself! Of course the most economic option is to do this at home, take a nice warm bath, apply a face mask and relax!

4. Free activities

All cities have free activities to offer, free day at the museum, free concert, I’m sure you can find great activities for free! Here’s a link for 50 free activities in Montreal  For your city just type on google “free activities to do in” and add your city!

5. Read & Watch

This is the perfect time to finally read that book waiting for you on the shelve and that TV show that your friends are always talking about. Go to your Netflix account and start a list to watch for the week!

6. Friends

Most of us have friends that don’t have to same work schedule than us, and it’s always hard to find the perfect time to see them. Now you have the time, make this week the perfect occasion for reunion, schedule a brunch or a shopping day with your friend!

7. Never have the time to do things…

We all have a list of stuff we never have the time to do whether is at home or in life, take this opportunity to scratch them on your to-do-list!

For my part, I’m planning to do Yoga every day, read, go to the spa and taking it easy with a glass of wine every night!!! If you have great staycation ideas to share don’t be shy!!

PFW Fall/Winter 2015-16 Favourite show

Five days have pasted since the beginning of the PFW (Paris Fashion Week). I took the time this morning to review some of the runaways. So far, I have some favourites I want to share with you. I haven’t had the time to see all of them, except for the biggest ones and my usual favourites! The pictures are in slideshow format this time, you can play and pause to watch them at your pace.

Balenciaga

Alexander Wang did an excellent job again at the head of Balenciaga. The collection is rich, elegant, chic and totally different from his own line. The details I like; his sexy wraps skirts, the stripe scarf and the elegant dress. I love the materials he used, it elevate each pieces of his collection. Chapeau Alexander Wang!

Isabel Marant

For daily followers, I’m sure you know that Isabel will be part of my favourite show!!! I’ll repeat myself, but I love the way she’s able to make all women look sexy in our clothes in her own unique way. This is not my favourite collection from her, I’m not sure that I like to see that many structured pieces from her. I usually love her fluidity, but still it’s a beautiful collection. What I like about it; her prints, inspired by her travels, the transparency and the knee high boots, so sexy!!!!

New Discover

Andrew GN

First, I have to confess that I didn’t know about this designer before this morning, and that I’m happy I discovered him. Andrew GN is a Singapore native now living in France. There is so much to say about his collection. It’s a beautiful mix between, Nordic influences, native American and Asian. I like the freshness of his line, the textures, the prints, the big Nordic sweaters and THAT electric blue whoa!!! I can’t wait to see his next collection!

Blue Jeans, White Shirt

Dana Indigo Skinny Jeans

“You fit me better than my favourite sweater”, like Lana Del Ray said (I know she doesn’t mean the jeans) there’s nothing better than a good pair of blue denim jeans. No matter you’re wearing them with your favourite sneaker the casual way, or with a sexy pair of heels, you know that you will look good.

Most of the time in fashion,  “Keep It Simple” is the way to go! I just received this new pair of blue skinny from Well binder, do you find they look good on me?
