Sunlight After The Rain

A trench coat is an absolute must in your closet. It’s a staple, especially in beige. It immediately elevates any outfit and is perfect for transitioning from season to season. The best part about this coat, other then the functionality is the versatility. It can be worn over a cocktail dress with heels as effortlessly as boyfriend…

Phoebe Philo Gets Me

Other then sharing a love of sneakers, more specially Stan Smiths-me and Phoebe Philo have little in common. Other then of course our admiration for her (she better admire herself, the woman is a fashion genius). She’s French, which makes her immediately untouchably cool, smart, a mother, listed in Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people…

Athletica

The sporting life, making it’s way in to fall and next spring- this trend isn’t going anywhere. And it shouldn’t.  I’m feeling totally retro with this jacket and sneaker combo. But plot-tiwst I paired with a midi skirt for a little less “I just went to the gym” and a little more “I woke up…

Autumn Apple Pie

Form the orchards to your kitchen table. We went apple picking this week, ’tis the season after all. What a beautiful day to do so. Not a cloud in the sky. Felt like July in September. After acknowledging that we may have picked too many, I distributed between friends and family accordingly. However I still had…

Totally Oversized

Oversize everything. Jeans. Sweater. Boots. Watch.  This must be what the Oslens feel like. I think that they are on to something.  It’s easy, undone and clearly comfortable. I borrowed my boyfriends Hamilton watch and although it weighed more then a newborn baby, I love how it looked. I wish I could borrow more of his clothes,…

Hump Day

This week has felt particularly long. I don’t know if it’s the colder days or the late nights. I couldn’t put it off any longer, I had to bring out a coat. Given that plaids seem to be around every fall- this coat is a staple in my closet.  The colours, length and fit are…

French Onion Soup

  For some reason, I’ve never attempted making French Onion soup before. It’s one of my absolute favourite soups and it seems that it only has a few ingredient. Well that’s all about to change, because I absolutely love to cook and I have no excuse for not making this! Of course I turned to…

Noir

If I had one weakness to admit to, one vice…it would have to be shoes. I am embarrassed to even count how many pairs I have. But they way I see it, they always fit! I don’t have to worry about gaining or losing a pound, whether or not  I shaved my legs, or if…

Sunset Shades

A lesson in gorgeous color, this mustard hued blazer. So unique and perfectly appropriate for this time of year.  Blazers are easily one of the most versatile pieces you can own. How gorgeous would this one look over a black cocktail or any other rick jewel-tone fall colour? Or with a ivory sweater underneath for…

Sweet & Spicy

Mixing it up today. A sweet floral top, with distressed ripped jeans. Adds a little edge. I love the structured construction of this top paired with the totally deconstructed jeans.  It doesn’t make sense but it works. Same can be done with a grungy, over-size top and super sleek fitted bottoms. The un-done but done…

Prep School

My spin on preppy cool. This sweater has been seen on every single blogger, celebrity and knocked off by every shop there is. The original inspiration came from the Rag & Bone Talia sweater. Good luck finding that, since it’s been sold-out everywhere for ages. But if you want to save a few hundred peso’s…

Sweater Weather

Days are cooler, nights even more so. Sun is going down sooner and coming up later. All signs point to Autumn. It’s time to bring out the cozy, warm sweaters. As well as darken up the make-up.  Cool tones, burgundy lips, smokey eyes, paler skin….I love experimenting with make-up every season. This colour is Cyber…

Double Denim

If jeans have become the most versatile piece in our wardrobe then a natural evolution would be this skirt. Long are the days of teeny, tiny, frayed Abercrombie denim skirts. They got a designer make-over. I’m talking pencil/midi, classic and just as versatile as your favourite pair of blues. Easily transitioned form summer to fall…

CÉLFIE

Taking a casual approach to this Friday. I’ve had this shirt in my collection for well over a year now and although it may be overdone (and I don’t normally ever take “ceflies”)- I still love it. So there. The real winner of this outfit is the pants. Uniqlo really nailed it with these pants.…

Check-Mate

As much as I hate to admit it, I’m feeling fall this year. Plaid, leather, muted colours….I mean…as much as I try to deny it it’s going to happen, so I might as well embrace it. I thought I would give my boyfriend jeans a break this week, and while for most humans that means…

Summer Blues

Beating the September heat wave Montreal is my plan with this outfit today. Distressed 90’s baggy denim with a sweet cami and a little peek-a-boo from my lace bralette. This paired back approach to casual/grunge dressing works with a the few feminine pieces and iridescent kicks. I’m taking every excuse to continue to wear my sky-high…

My New Boyfriend

Like every woman on Earth, I am in search of the perfect boyfriend.  Supportive, attractive, someone I can be comfortable with or in terms of what I am referring to…more like..in.  I think I may have found him. Don’t tell my actual boyfriend. But he is perfect. I have a love hate relationship with boyfriend…

Transitioning

Days are getting shorter and hemlines are getting longer. I’ve had this faux leather skirt for years and this is the first time I’ve worn it. Doesn’t everyone have those pieces in their closet?  You never wear them, but you can’t bear to throw them out? I’m so happy I didn’t, because this is one…

2 for 1

Why wear one dress, when you can wear two! Sadly autumn is quickly approaching. A bittersweet reminder of that is this Labour Day weekend. My wardrobe has begun to transition, with muted colours, heavier fabrics and layering. I saw this plaid dress in Forever 21 in Vegas a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t buy…

The Thing About Stripes

Red, black, white, thick, thin- doesn’t matter. Stripes and basic tops have had the longest standing relationship in fashion. Seen basically every season in every which possible way.  Although I lean more towards vertical stripes due to the elongating factor- I don’t discriminate. I love both. It can look nautical, classic, sporty, totally 60’s or…
