Stripes At The Museum

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!

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.
Happy Saturday!

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.

Skirt/Short: Zara

T-shirt: George (aka Walmart)

Shoes : ASOS Domino

The only thing all white right now in Montreal is the weather since the snow has been falling in a way tourists would probably think is romantic for the past 24 hours . But when it’s been snowing since November , it gets sort of irritating when all I want to do is look as clean crisp and summery as Kati Nescher does in these images. I am not always fond of studio pictures because I think they don’t always make the pieces look as good but in this case , I think the all white set makes the clothes look even better. Kati looks so youthful and fresh in these crystal clear images , maybe because apart from wearing Alexander Wang , Comme des Garçons , Balenciaga and Givenchy ( hello , dream team!) , the bleached out color scheme makes her features more prominent. If it wasn’t clear enough , I want white in my wardrobe , not in my weather forecast!
This editorial is definitely going in my inspiration file for Sunday’s shoot with Maureen , more on that later!

White Linen

I am currently loving my Piazza Sempione  linen shirt , it just makes me want to fast forward into summer so I can pair it with some baggy jean shorts and pumps. The cut is perfectly loose and the strait slit down the neckline shows just a sliver of skin. I can’t wait to show you guys how it will look on but first , the blizzard outside of my window needs to go away. Speaking of summer , I really need to find the perfect loose, just above the knee denim shorts since I am kind of rejecting my short shorts this summer.
Happy Sunday !

Why is it the first time I see Bo Don? I had never heard of her before now but I am glad I did. She reminds me of Rooney Mara in The Girl With A Dragon Tatoo, which was probably my favorite movie of 2012 , since I had read all of Steig Larsson’s novels. Shot by Dancian for Zoo Magazine.

All white everything.

I am not a very big fan of color. I know it may not sound very fashion forward or whatever but I usually wear black , white, gray or camel. Sometimes burgundy and forest green but that’s rare. One of my favorite looks for Fall , apart from my usual , black slim jeans and black long sleeve sweater uniform, is all white. Not a trace of color , blending in perfectly with the snow. For some reason this look just seems so perfect right now. So flawless and easy.

Discovery : Paolo Coppolella

I just keep discovering new designers these days on Young Republic . One of these designers is Paolo Coppolella. The first thing I love about his most recent collection is the black and white theme. In minimalist cuts ,it look minimalist and chic . The color scheme really pleases me since I am not one to wear tremendous amounts of color anytime of the year .The thing is , you could buy pieces this fall but wear them totally differently in the spring and they would still look good. You could also wear them day or night . This collection is a obvious ode to the fact that minimalism means versatility.
