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!
Last year , a guy asked me “do you know what a snap-back is?”and dumbfounded , I responded that I though it was some kind of back-pack , obviously ignorant when it came to menswear ( P.S : if you have as much knowledge on what snap-backs are as I did at the time , it’s the kind of baseball caps that are flat in the front and have snaps in the back) .But since then I have grown to know what they are and maybe ,just maybe ,wear one , even if I hate they way they make men look .Honestly , I am still repelled by snap-backs on men ,so me doing a post on how I like the way they look on women makes me the biggest hypocrite but , whatever. I am not really keen yet on a full-fledge super colorful cap , it’s still a little too “swag” for me ( pardon my illeteracy , I don’t really know how else to put it). Maybe it’s my constant constant listening to A$AP Rocky’s new album that’s bringing out my tough side , but I am loving the way a baseball cap looks . It’s the easiest way I can think of to make an otherwise more formal outfit casual . Perfect for summer when the humidity in Montreal turns my hair into an unruly mess , I can just slick back my hair into one of these and pray to look a little like Caroline Brasch.
Recently I have been really into Caroline Brasch Nielsen’s style. I think it’s because she incorporates sporty basics and comfort in every look. Don’t get me wrong , I love a high pair of pumps as much as the next gal but those flat sandals she wears all the time look like more of a spring staple than towering over everybody. I will definitely taking cues from her casual style this summer . Hello mid-thigh denim shorts!
I’m still in bed but a little street-style stalking is kind of the best way to start the day don’t you think? Hope I put a little inspiration in your Saturday.
I recently spoke about one of my favorite new designers Yes I am French. I just love the sporty minimalism of her clothes and since she sent me one of her shirts I can assure you that the quality is amazing. The cotton is so soft and well sewn, it’s a nice change for some of the high street stores we are familiar with. I’m so glad we caught the sunset in a schoolyard , the lighting was so perfect. Grey weather is just so appropriate for my fall wardrobe.

Yesterday was a perfect day for just walking around in cozy sweaters and coats . The sky was a perfect match with the historical buildings in Old Montreal. If you are wondering what I am wearing , it’s all Zara , head to toe. Kind of pathetic but I promise I didn’t do purpose.
