Hey Sunshine

This photo made me smile for a number of reasons. The warm tones counterbalanced by the obvious soft breeze, her smile and of course, the killer outfit. Summer, come hither.

Lay Lady Lay

I fell in love with the Fendi SS11 collection when it went down the runway last september and i'm just as in love today. Give me effortless lady and shoes of the season any day. (See more amazing spring collections by clicking on the Designers tag)

Laughing Like Children

I hope you guys all had a wonderful long Easter weekend (or passover week, whichever it is you celebrate). Today is the last day of my mini vacation and here are a few musings: i ate WAY too much. The Montreal Canadiens took a major nose dive (yes, i am a HUGE hockey fan- GO HABS GO!!). I was able to rest and sleep in for the first time in i don't know how long. Spending time with my family is always such a pleasure. Today finally feels like a real spring day, it's 15 degrees C (that's 59F), sunny and the breeze is warm. We're almost there!


California Girl

Elin was a vision of effortless cool at Coachella and this is exactly the type of look that will carry me through the long lazy summer days, if they can get here already. Ps those Rag & Bone boots will be mine one day. It's my birthday in less than 1 month. They're available here. I'm a size 6. Just throwing all of that out there.

I can't stop staring at this ad: i don't know if it's the subtlety, the simplicity, the softness, the bright lips or Kate... Maybe it's a combination of all of the above?


Wild Wild West

There's always something special about Vogue China editorials and this how-the-west-was-won spread is beyond. Liu looks so authentic, ironically.

Yet another installment of my spring picks. I've got a shopping ban in place and i'm itching to ransack every store i pass and every online shop i browse. I don't recommend this while transitioning into a new season guys, it is EXTREMELY difficult. Anyway, this color palette is something that is feeling so fresh for spring and summer and i would certainly not be averse to living in some of these pieces once the weather finally warms up. Unfortunately, i may just have to shop in my own closet. (Click here if you want to see more of my spring picks!)

Easy Street

I am in love with this girl's easy, cool attitude - something so intrinsic to the parisian - and the way she put together her look, telling the world that she tried, but it doesn't show that she did. Catch my drift? The details here deserve all the praise.

The Best Thing

For spring 2011, Rebecca Taylor offered casual girlishness, the perfect clothes for the girlfriend of a Ray LaMontagne type. Pretty hot girl, i'd say. (See more favorite spring 11 collections by clicking on the Designers tag)


Top of the List

The perfect little black dress. Very Black Swan, no? Cocktail, please.

Light My Morning Sky

Hanneli looks so beautiful and natural in this shot, it's mesmerizing.



Now tell me, what is better than a white trouser in the spring?

Siri, in all of her charming glory.

Modern Muse

The mix of these pieces together result in something pretty damn flawless. I especially love how classic everything is, yet it's not pristine. The execution is perfect.

With the Band

H&M really has it down pat: of-the-moment trends? Check. Amazing models? Check. Fantastic stylists? Check. Sick photographers? Check. Inspiration and accessibility? Check.

It ACTUALLY feels like spring - finally - and therefore completely appropriate to talk favorite spring collections. Following this, this and this, i bring you more dream-inducing looks, courtesy of none other than Chloé.

Dree Demonstrates

I am completely smitten with this look. The elements work so well together and i especially appreciate how simple it is. The lipstick seals the deal.

Boots - Rachel Comey

The New Daria

She first caught my eye on the fall 2011/2012 Balmain runway and she made me go "Who IS that girl?!?", which prompted some thorough investigating. She has a Sasha twinkle to her, as well as Natalia's transcending girlish sparkle. The name is Daria Pleggenkuhle. Remember it.
