Since the weather like to play games with us here in Quebec, Montreal is surrounded by ice. After crazy cold, then rain and then crazy cold again, there’s nothing else to expect! Last Thursday the weather was not so bad, what I mean is that we had a not too cold minus 18 Cecilius! That kind of weather for us, is now considered okay hahaha! So, I could wear something else than my crazy warm Penfield jacket. I love it, but we have to face it, less fashionable!! I pulled out this old jacket wich I think will never get old, it’s a great classic. Every girl should have a great navy “nautical” look jacket in her wardrobe, it will never go out of style!

Yep, this is my new favorite crew-neck Bliss & Glory! And the best part of it is, first I bought it with a gift card that I got for Christmas, and second is that I got it on sale!! Isn’t beautiful ;P So it’s Sunday and the last day of my vacation noooo!!!! It went so fast I could totally use one more week! In the meantime I know that tomorrow when I’ll be at work, I will be super happy to see my coworkers, especially that I’m leaving them in two weeks.
Yes this is the big decision that I had to take a couple weeks ago. I accepted a new job, after 10 year with Amnesia, I’m leaving for a new adventure. It was a really hard decision, I didn’t sleep for a month, but I’m happy with my decision, change is good! When you are too comfortable in your job, it means it’s maybe time to change, and this was my case. On that note, have a good evening and a good week xx

Acne Contact Crinkle
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

Fall, isn’t it the best season for layering? I love mixing pieces together to make them look different, to give them a new twist. Basics are the best to start and then you add a statement piece. When I say statement, it doesn’t have to be overloaded. In this outfit, I used my striped men’s vest for my statement, mixed with a bunch of basics, it gives it a totally different look than wearing it with a suit! Oh and I wear my new hat, my boyfriend bought it for me at the latest warehouse sale at work, I wasn’t at the office, so he thought of me, I’m the luckiest girl!!! Tomorrow it’s already FRIDAY!! wouhou!! Enjoy your week-end!

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

I was looking at my past weeks personal outfits posts, and I realized that I wore a lot of black, grey and white lately!! The best mixed of color during this season. For my part these colors are way far from boring. Here, I wear a pair of pleather leggings, with my baseball shirt, it gives them a street look especially paired with sneakers like my Nike’s. Oh and because it’s kind of cool in the morning I pulled out my biker wool jacket 🙂
What do you think about this outfit? Let me know you thoughts, I love hearing from you xxx
