MAXI DRESSES & SRAW HATS

I feel like I have so many things to share…so let’s take a deep breath and let’s do this! So, 1st of all, Summers (or if you can call this unpredictable ever-changing weather we are having in Montreal as “Summer”) are made of maxi dresses: Easy to wear, light, instant outfits! Just look at this California Moonrise off the shoulder red floral maxi perfection – drooling over it, I swear. Probably one of my favourite things in my closet! I have been wearing this brand from its inception and I feel it just gets better and better with time (like…

HOME ESSENTIALS

Home sweet home! Except… It’s been almost 5 years now that my hubs & I have been living in our condo and it’s still unfinished. Bare walls, missing light fixtures, random blue wall in the bathroom that doesn’t match anything – you name it, we’re the worst. I blame it partly on laziness, partly on the lack of time, but mostly b/c I’m really picky. I analyze everything at least 100 times before it crosses my doorstep. This year I decided that I will finish the place and make it home-y (challenge accepted)! So far, I’ve accomplished 2 things: got…

HAPPY B-DAY CANADA!

150 years of greatness – I’m so proud to be Canadian! For this special occasion, I partnered up with Le Chateau to put together a Canada Day worthy outfit featuring some pieces Made In Canada! White & red represent – outfit details below! To celebrate Canada, I thought that I’d share my top 5 reasons why I love it: 1- The people – kind, welcoming & open minded 2- The healthcare – yes we have long wait lines (ok let’s not get into that lol), but the treatments are free and available to everyone. 3- The educational system – pretty…

#5DAYSOFGRAYES

When did a boring black suit become the corporate uniform? Guilty! Don’t get me wrong, a black suit can look great, as long as it’s paired with a fun top! Ladies, you can look stylish & on trend at the office just as much as on the weekend. The key is to invest in some great basics and build on them by mixing & matching with your current wardrobe. Easier said then done? Well, I took on the #5DAYSOFGRAYES challenge to find out for myself. The idea was to take two pieces of Grayes clothing: the classic black pencil pant…

WEDDING GUEST

Wedding season is upon us ladies! I don’t know about you, but I always end of having 2-3 weddings a year. Of course, each requires it’s own outfit right?! ‘Cannot be seen in that again, duh’. But, when you start adding it up: wedding gift, new dress, hair & makeup, accessories… it’s easy to get ruined. That’s why I wanted to show you a look that’s under $100, yet looks like a million dollars. Believe it or not, I got this gorgeous fit & flare dress at Dynamite! It’s a nice scuba knit fabric that looks ultra luxe! It retails for…

BLOOMING

Magical isn’t it? When trees bloom in Montreal, it looks like a fairytale. Tamara, my photographer, insisited on this backdrop, and I gotta say, now that I look at the result, it’s truly spectacular! There were tons of people around the picnic tables drinking beer – we both looked at each other and said: it’s a thing here in Montreal, as soon as it gets warm, Montrealers flock to terrasses. Do you ever think to yourself: I gotta take advantage of the weather, and then end up being too lazy, crashing on the couch with netflix and then regretting it…

SPORTY CHIC

Sneakers are the new pumps! You can wear them with jumpsuits, dresses, skirt, pants – pretty much anything. If you ask me, looking chic has never been this comfortable ;) I’m honestly loving this new trend and really hope it’s here to stay for a while! After a long day of work in a suit and heels, switch it up to white sneakers! You will be right on trend! I’m swooning over these Adidas Original Stan Smiths, which I got at the newly renovated Sport Experts store in downtown Montreal (pics & location below). The store is huge (biggest in…
