My favorite image of this week’s belated Miscellaneous is the last one from Vogue Paris, featuring Tom Ford’s jewelry collection . The one thing I possibly like more than the images of this editorial is this quote form Tom Ford :
“I am tired of the cult of youth. The cultural rejection of old age, the stigmatization of wrinkles, grey hair, of bodies furrowed by the years. I am fascinated by Diana Vreeland, Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, women who have let time embrace them without ever cheating. Society today condems this, me, I celebrate it. For this session of fine jewellery, I imagined a man and a woman who had been together for a long time, faithful to each other and always incandescent with desire.”
This actually reminds me of when I was in Miami and we where sitting in a restaurant when I noticed the lady sitting next to our table donned a tiny white dress paired with a pair of impossibly high heels , obviously trying to look half her age. The I wondered, what was the problem of looking like you are fifty when you are fifty? Women should learn to embrace their age , let their smile- lines grin again. There is nothing like a woman who has let time alter her appearance , let experience make her wiser but has maintained a impenetrable psychological youth.
On that note , it’s Friday go do something fun.
This weekend , I found myself in a dressing room with a white crochet bikini, two maxi dresses and three pairs of denim shorts. What was going on? I am usually the most finicky shopper , normally walking out of the shop empty handed. But with summer well on it’s way , I blame this sudden dressing room enthusiasm on the prevalent beautiful weather. Just slipping into a light floor length dress took me right back to Hudson, the small beach town where where I spend most of my summer days , I could almost feel the sun warming my skin and the breeze turning my hair into the most perfectly imperfect mess.
The breezy bohème vibes of Isabel Marant’s spring collection replicated this feeling , making this rainy Tuesday morning even more unbearable than it already is. Although the pieces where similar to all seasons past , the parisian cowboy thematic appearing once again, I still fell in love with almost every effortless piece. Every piece is garnished with gorgeous prints and embellishments , making them casual and unforgettable all at once. If someone can create the ultimate summer wardrobe , it is without a doubt Marant.
As you may or may not know , today is Wednesday and therefore , I’ve got some new miscellaneous images from you. As you may be able to tell , I really want the summertime to come quick .With less than a month of school left I can’t help wanting ice cream, a tan , wearing short shorts and just enjoying every moment of blissful weather.
All images are not mine , you can find them all on my Tumblr which is where I got them and the sources are on there .
Linen shirt – Piazza Sempione
Pinstripe trousers- ASOS
Black pumps – Zara
I put on my drama face and headed to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts , not only a superb place to pose around while tourists gawk at you uncomfortaly but also , a fine museum, pun intended. I pranced around the marble columns wearing my pin stripe pants from ASOS , which by the way I have been loving recently ,their products have that ideal free shipping/decent quality/good looking balance. I’m planning on living in this soft linen lightness this summer so much in fact that I’ve talked about it before!
Happy weekend , don’t forget to show your mama some love!

Spring has sprung and I am trying something new here on WWWD. Wednesdays are sometimes boring , not quite close enough to the weekend but a long way from Monday . To improve this somewhat mediocre day , I want to share what’s inspiring me , what I’ve been thinking about or things I just find interesting. The chosen images are from my Tumblr , the best place for me to gather inspiration.That being said , tracing the exact source is difficult but if the images are yours please ,please let me know.
This week , it’s everything from Abby Lee’s badass Met Ball look to neon lights and swimming pools.
*note: these images are not mine , all images are on my Tumblr , I them reblogged them from various other blogs.
The weather is getting so hot recently , I can’t resist shopping around for bikinis.I have been looking for the perfect neoprene bikini for a while now so when I found this one on australian brand Triangl’s Instagram , I immediately had to check out the rest of their styles. I love a white bikini , I like to keep things simple (black or white) when I’m picking out swimwear but I love all the colors , especially Arizona Sunset which I think would look so good with a tan.
Check out the rest of their styles here!
It was a beautiful hot day ,so we decided to shoot a little near McGill University. This is possibly the most comfortable outfit I have shown , and I will probably wear it all summer long . After the seemingly never ending winter , it’s so nice to spend the day just out , enjoying the city and being able to drink iced coffee without freezing my fingers.This little skirt/short from Zara is probably my favorite piece right now , very structured without being overwhelming and too “styled” if ya know what I mean.
T-shirt: George (aka Walmart)
Shoes : ASOS Domino

Just a little peek at Anja’s S Moda El Pais editorial , my two favorite images actually. I love the fresh , soft and summery vibes these images give off . Anja just looks so elegant at the same time as being completely disheveled.She looks so calm I have really been looking to Anja for hair inspiration lately , she has that short-but-not-too-short goodness I want paired with the perfect shade of sunny blond.
Also , there will be more and more outfit shots of me , Maureen and I are trying to take images at least once a week and putting inspiration together for a baby editorial . Hopefully , the more we shoot , the less akward I get.

Cheer, buttercups ! It’s almost Friday!
I am not usually one to change my scent for the season but this bottled up beach from Maison Martin Margiela might have just convinced me after I smelled it today. The best way I could describe it would be that it’s a combination of all the good summer smells , a touch of sunscreen , sunkissed skin and just the smallest hint of coconut sweetness. Somehow , it almost instantly left me nostalgic for a past beach vacation , that being the point of the Replica line , bringing you back to your favorite memory the way only a certain scent can.

My ultimate makeup goal last year as to archieve the perfect cat eye and as useless as I am with makeup , I finally got it . But it always looked more fancy,Mad Men than effortless Bardot. So I got over it. Although now , the latest issue of Intermission magazine with Caroline Brasch Nielsen on the cover just convinced me that I should give it another try. This time though , bold, messy and leaving Betty Draper out of this.
