Last Sunday Maureen and I took a few images to start off the summer right. We just headed outside and soaked up the sun near the pool . On that note , I am wishing you all an exquisite summer filled with as many adventures , mojitos and sunshine possible!

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”

I’ve added a few new pairs to my shoe collection , most recently a lovely pair of Repetto ballet flats that I by far the most comfortable of the ensemble. Finding a exceptionally crafted ,simple leather flat lately is kind of difficult , but Repetto seems to have it down pat. Just one look at that buttery leather and I was sold.

Happy Wednesday!

“She got a lot of Prada…”

The latest Prada Fall-Winter campaign is everything fall dressing should be. Layers of thick wool and delicate embroidery make for a lavish winter wardrobe but pairing it with what looks like rain-slicked hair brings it down a notch. Once again, Catherine McNeil serves as perfect hair-inspiration , showing off her perfect chop.

Happy Friday!

The first day of summer break is always so refreshingly unusual . It actually took some time for me to get used to not having to study during my every waking hour. I spent the day in Old Montreal , walking around aimlessly, enjoying my newfound freedom and taking the sun. Ah , summer. This editorial shot by Ward Ewen Rafik for RUSSH magazine reminds me of the sweltering , crowded streets of the city in July, muggy and yet somehow invigorating and exiting. Anaïs is simply beautiful , bare faced her features are even more prominent and lovely. The contrast of the very every-day setting and spring’s greatest pieces creating an ideal understated feeling, even making furry shoes seem completely wearable.

Maureen and I are working on a little series of photos we are shooting Sunday, I can’t wait to share them.

Here are a few images that inspire me at the moment , since I am getting my prom dress for next spring custom made and the design-creation-yada- yada-yada process starts in about four weeks. I know it’s very early , but I figured “hey , this is fun , pourquoi pas?” I am thinking a low back  , a little Michelle Pfeiffer circa Scarface ,in black or ivory. Also , a little Rihanna and glitter never hurt anybody…
