I’m leaving perhaps only in 41 days for Japan, (yes I count the days) but I already know what will be part of my luggage (at least most of it). Minimalist outfit, based on good classic silhouette, good fabric and tonal colours. Since we go there at the beginning of fall, the day should be around 24 degrees, but at night a good leather jacket or a comfy sweater might be required.
In terms of shoes, of course, my all-time favorite will be part of the trip, the best comfortable shoes ever, my Adidas Stella McCartney ultra boost. I might also bring one practical dress that can be worn casually during the day and more sophisticated at night for a fancy dinner date with my love.
I am super excited for his trip, I planned it with a new app that I discovered this year, Sygic Travel. A really helpful app, where you can add place you want to visit on a map, and you can plan your trip by day. For example, in Tokyo it is recommended planning your trip one day per neighborhood since there is so much to see in each of them Sygic travel was the best to help me plan my day and make sure, I am not missing anything. Of course this is a guideline, and we might at the end discover something else on the route and that is perfect, it’s just help plan in general our week in Tokyo.
Finally, I just got back from Vegas/LA and I’m leaving next week for London/Milan, I’m super excited, a lot of traveling lately. Stay tuned on my Instagram for update xx
In two days, it will be the autumnal equinox falls, first day of fall. Summer passed so fast, like always. Good new is that fall is my favorite season, and it’s the best season for Fashion. It’s the layerings season, when you can wear your favorite dress with a pair of boots, pull out of your wardrobe your most comfortable scarf and your sweetest sweater. The fresh air, and colors are just so beautiful! Can you tell I love this season haha!
I’m finally leaving for my euro-trip this Thursday, two weeks vacation with my love, it will do so much good! Barcelona-Marrakesh-Essaouira and Lisbon, if you have suggestions of what to do, what to eat and where to shop, please leave me a comment!!
See you xx

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?
I went shopping last week-end, and now there’s so many things that I want from the summer collections, ahh life is so not fair ;p kidding!!! I bought these pieces from the H&M Conscious collection that where on sale!!! Yep, the entire collection is now on sale, so if you don’t want to miss it, it’s time to go!!
But then there are other great pieces that I want, most of them from Aritzia, by the way, their new store on Sainte-Catherine Street is BEAUTIFUL!!! The rest is from Zara & H&M, look at that Kimono, it would be so perfect for my next trip!! You can shop for them online, I added the links at the end of the post, enjoy!!
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
Total blue, my favorite color, you might have noticed since I’m wearing navy a lot! For me it’s practically like black, a neutral color that I can match with everything! This week I found two new pieces of navy for my wardrobe, first these precious Birkenstock Arizona in matte navy. When they came in at our store, I couldn’t resist and these one are the perfect size for me.
They are in the narrow size, if you want to buy a pair of Birks you have to be careful as there is a big difference between the narrow size and the regular one. Since I have these ones, I don’t even know if I’m going to wear my white again since they are huge on my feet!!
Second buy is this Zara pleated skirt, I was looking for one like that and since I found this one on sale and plus in navy, it was a no-brainer!! It was the first time I wore it yesterday and I’m in love with it, it’s the perfect touch of femininity and fluidity that I was looking for. On that note, enjoy your Sunday, go outside and have fun!!! xxx

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.
First I have to apologize to you, this week-end I enjoyed the nice weather and didn’t pay attention to my blog. And now I feel bad since I saw that a lot of you dropped by to see if I updated it during the last few days, I’m sorry about that. Do you forgive me? 🙂
These pictures were taking yesterday in the Westmount area, Karim and I went to our favorite park, we made a little picnic and we read there on the grass all afternoon. This is the kind of lazy Sundays that I like!! This is me during the week-end, make-up-less, all natural!!
That’s it, I have a shopping craving, it is always in the moments when you can’t spend your money on clothes that these cravings are stronger, for me it is!
Why I can’t shop in the moment? Well my boyfriend and I are in the process of building a roof top terrace! You understand that a staircase, materials, furniture and all the beautiful plants that I see in my head, well that cost a lot of money! So, I have no choice but to rethink my priorities and it is not the clothes that are missing in my wardrobe!
But this is only a postponement, during this time well I’m doing some “window shopping” on the web and I deliberately make you spend for me haha! You can’t blame me right ;)
Yes, it’s been a long time since I wore a pair of Bermuda, the last time I think I was nine years old. But you know what, they are back and I really want a new pair! The pictures above are from; The Front Row. H&M and Zara.
Now, how to wear them? Here are some inspiration for you!
