Jack Purcell

Converse-Jack-Purcell

I’m not talking about the dog, I mean the shoe brand! Jack Purcell is the comfortable version of the classic Chuck Taylor from Converse. They are easy to recognize, wit their iconic black smile at the toe of the shoe!

It has been a while since I wore them, they are perfect to explore a city, and since I was in Quebec City last week-end visiting my family, I brought them in my luggage! They fit perfectly with my casual week-end outfit and they are confortable enough to walk with them all day long. Comfy + great look, perfect combination right?

Made By You, is the name of the latest Converse spring 2015 campaign. Who doesn’t own a pair of Chuck Taylor from the iconic brand, right? Everyone has a story whit that shoe, either from your last summer festival with mud still on them, which makes you remember that day, or even your Prom night!!

Can you believe that this shoe exist for almost 100 years? Since 1917, Converse makes the perfect casual shoes that you can wear with literally everything!!! I own 9 pairs of Converse, crazy right, and I love them all. My favourite pair is the one you can see in the picture above, it’s a collab with Maison Margiela. This photo gas been shot during the event, to re-create the Made By You campaign pictures, cool right?

I went to the Made By You spring 2015 launch last week, and Karim and I have been lucky enough to get a pair of custom Chuck Taylor. We designed a logo inside our Chuck’s and our name have been added too, so cool. I will never wear that pair of shoes in a crowed house party haha!!

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!

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

#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!!
