Open Road

I am in the middle of a huge move and my departure for nyc is imminent (12 days!!!) but what i really want to do this summer is take a road trip!



Effortlessness and owning your look is what style is all about.

Sun On My Skin

Ain't nothing like when the sun envelopes you like a warm blanket and looking amazing while it's happening.

Free spirit and simplicity. Sometimes looking stylish doesn't have to be much more than that.

What a gorgeous, hypnotizing shot.


War is Not the Answer

This updated peace and love outfit is all kinds of easy summer spectacular. Perfect for the city, the country or music festivals.

See the Light

Doesn't she look like she doesn't have a care in the world? Summer days at the best.

So as i mentioned, i have some big news about my life. In july, i'll be moving to new york for a fresh start. Montreal is home and i do love it, but i have always felt a strong connection with new york. I've been going through a lot of personal changes and i have always wanted to head back since my internship there in 08. This is the time for me and i've never been more excited, my life is about to shift in a major way. Of course, i will continue blogging, so stay tuned. And there you have it!

Going Somewhere

I really hate packing, but Lina makes it look like a fun thing to do. Especially when it evokes gathering your things for a summer vacation.

Good Morning Heartache

Absolutely gorgeous image. There's something incredibly nostalgic about it too. It's easy beach elegance, yet could work perfectly in a city setting too. Stunning.

Here Comes the Sun

This image is full of joy and it happens to be a joyful day.

Goergia May, turning up the heat.


Warm My Cold, Cold Heart

There's something about this that completely draws me in. The weird length she cut her jeans paired with the classic brown loafers is incredibly compelling.

Just Another Day

I haven't posted my attire in forever and some of you have been asking about it. I'm sorry to say that unfortunately i haven't had the chance to get together with my partner in crime for photo taking purposes yet - we've been waiting for weather-conducive opportunities. So here are a few looks i happened to snap with my phone before leaving the house. Sorry about the quality, but you get the gist, right?

Leather jacket - Mackage
Poncho - Suno

Sunnies - Ray Ban

Top - Chloé
Skirt - Club Monaco
Shoes - Alaïa

Skirt - H&M
Button down - Bitten by Sarah Jessica Parker
Denim jacket - Gap
Bag - Givenchy
Boots - Rachel Comey

Button down - Bedo mens
Jeans - J Brand
Shoes - Zara
Bag - Cowboys Bag

Sink Your Teeth Right Through my Bones, Baby

Doesn't Hanna look like a young Kate Moss, especially with the plaid? This photo is very evocative of fall and it seems appropriate right now cause the weather is just rainy and drab. I feel like i've been talking a lot about the weather in recent posts, but that's because - unfortunately - it affects my mood and inspiration. I have to say, i've been browsing the world wide web and my usual suspects seem to be failing me. I can't find anything that i deem worth posting. I've been so busy with exciting projects and work, perhaps my creative drought is the result of the overwhelming time deficiency i am currently experiencing.

Bed Head

There's nothing sexier than simplicity.

Tiny Dancer

I'm craving all these dance-inspired feminine pieces right now,. And with the right styling, each one is the perfect blank canvas to inject the ideal amount of edge.

Clockwise from left:

Carven - A.L.C. - Joseph - Proenza Schouler - The Row - Giuseppe Zanotti - Chloé - Alaïa - Chloé

In Bloom

It feels so refreshing when seasons change. There's nothing more inspiring than waking up to sunshine every day after a long, cold, unpleasant winter and a shitty, rainy spring. If i had it my way, i would wear little dresses like this all summer.

Please Stay

Another gorgeous day of this beautiful week. This weather's been a long time coming!


A Touch of Plaid

Such easy elegance. Cool incarnate.
