“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?
Ahh! the season change! Every time, it gives us the need to shop for some newness for our closet, right? Spring is actually a tricky season, if you live in a cold country like Canada. You have to be careful with your choices and keep it simple and modest , cause as soon as the sun and the warm days will be back, you will want to go shopping again but that time for summer clothes!!
Keep it simple with neutral colours, leave the fun for the accessories or by trying a new silhouette. For myself, I’m planning to do a Maxi Slip Dress in Silk, that for now I will be wearing with boots and then this summer with a nice pair of slide sandals!
Have you already started your spring shopping?
Do you want to shop from my wish list? Here’s the link from left to right:
Happy Tuesday, and if you are from Quebec, happy St-Jean! Since it’s our national day here, I’ve got inspired by it and I made a blue mood board for you. Blue it’s our flag color and quebecois are really proud of it, a lot of people wear blue during this day, the 24th of June.
What you will find really good about this inspiration board, is that everything from it is from summer sales. Yes, I know so much good stuff from this season, and since blue is my favorite color, it wasn’t hard from me to find the perfect pieces for you.
After seeing Isabel Marant and Ralph Lauren’s fall 2014 shows, they inspired me to pull out my Pendleton X Hurley Jacket from my wardrobe. There’s a native even cow-boyish trend in the air. After Karl Lagerfeld with is Chanel Métiers D’Art show, I will not be surprised to see more of it for the next seasons.
My boyfriend offered me this jacket as a Christmas present a couples years ago, I wanted it so much, but it was really exclusive and really hard to find. I was so surprised when I opened my gift and sooo happy!!! He knows me so well 🙂
Oh and by the way, do you like my new Acne boots 🙂

While most fashion bloggers are in New York right now for the Fashion Week, me, I’m home with a cold 🙁 Ok.. I should not complain since, in two weeks, I will be in Vegas for fashion trade-shows and then in Los Angeles for trends research, not bad right?!
What do you think of my Camel coat? An indispensable of this season if you are not ready for the pastel color version! Paired with a great indigo denim and nice pair of boot and you got an easy chic casual outfit!

Ahhhh! Acne, this collection is to die for! What a beautiful resort collection, I’m in love with this blue, so intense, electric is the word to describe this rich color. What about the gladiator sandals made with raw leather, perfection… and the shoes!! I want the entire collection! The Scandinavians, they know how to design clothes!!
Nothing better than a chunky sweater to keep us warm during the cold season. This one is vintage, it’s oversized the way I like them. I discovered an handmade knitwear collection on Instagram last week wich I fell in love with, I Love Mr. Mittens. You have to go take a look at her collection, from the chunky beanie to the perfect cable knit!!

I’ve got some new Acne pants today, haha!! There is an awesome shop on my street called Stockmarket, it’s a small outlet where they sell brands that I love, like Acne, Filippa K, James Perse and more. Last week-end, they started their samples sale so I went there after work. I bought three pieces from James Perse wich I will show you later this week-end! The pants that I wore today, the Contact Crinkle are from the SS11 collection, a bit old, but still totally my style of clothes! I like the fact that you could where them relax, like I did today or more chic, with a nice blouse and heels.
I made a big decision in my life lately, and it has affected me a lot, emotionally I mean, that’s why you may have found my blog post less frequent this past couples of week. Don’t worry, nothing bad, the opposite actually, but it was a hard decision and I had to think about it seriously. I will tell you soon, but for now I started to feel better and I will be more focus on my blog 🙂 kisses Isabelle

Already Thursday, wow the week went by so fast. Tomorrow I have summer 2014 presentations all day and Saturday, we are leaving for the Adirondack!! Yay I can’t wait, we are going there for hiking and we are going to stay in a tipi haha! Yeah yeah a tipi. It’s like a dream come true. No wi-fi there, I will have to deal with it, I have to say that some time without technology will be really beneficial!
I made a little shopping list inspiration. I’m really into midnight blue mixed with black these days. I especially love the kimono cardigan by Zadig & Voltaire, it looks so comfy! I will try my bests to prepare you a little something before I leave. If not, have a good week-end xxx
