MOROCCO - REVISITED


To travel, to see and experience more of the world are some of my main goals in life. I travel as much as possible, work hard, save and go; it's even better when I get to go somewhere for work. I have many countries, cities and places that I would like to visit one day. Morocco was on my list, and what a place! Beautiful in its many colours, streets are alive with noises, the people and the architecture will leave your senses full and wanting more. I was fortunate enough to visit this country with one of my best friends, and we really took our time exploring the cities, markets, restaurants and street food too - best mint tea ever. Sometimes not all experiences abroad, being a female traveller are pleasant, trust me we had a few of those moments. I have learnt when travelling to just roll with things as they happen, good or bad. Do not hold on to anything that is not going to bring you positivity, to just take in all that is different and beautiful.

WEEKEND VIBE: WIDE LEG PANTS & ADILETTES

WEARING: Cameo Collective Crop Top, Vintage Pants, Hieleven Bag, Cluse Watch, Galisfly Rings, Adilette & Common Muse Earrings.

Weekends are usually when you will see me wearing something other than my weekday uniform (black top or sweater, paired with black skinny jeans, a choice of leather jacket / a bomber or an oversized long coat - depending on the weather) always with sneakers. During the week I don't exactly get an A for effort, all black is the easiest way for making yourself socially acceptable without having to spend too much time getting ready.

I am all about being comfortable and dressing down, but you will never see me out in sweatpants. On the weekends though, when I have extra time to think about what I want to wear, that's when I like to try a few things that I wouldn't wear on a weekday. Here for example I paired a crop top with high waist, wide leg pants and Adilettes, semi tucked hair and minimal accessories for the win. Most people probably wouldn't be able to wear this look at work (not everyone works in fashion), but you can rock it during the weekend.

What is your weekend vibe? Tell me in the comments below! xx

INSTA LIFE: VACATION TIME

WEARING: Beth Richards x THP Cara White Crop Top + Naomi Bottom and Beth Richards Amber Top + Naomi Bottom Black.

10 days in paradise: blue skies, sunshine, the ocean and white sands. It was exactly what I needed. Nothing like salt water and fresh air to get your energy balanced and new ideas flowing. I miss this place. Is it too soon to say I am ready for another get away?!

CROPPED SKINNY JEANS IS NOW TRENDING

WEARING: Melissa Araujo V-Neck Top, 7FAM Cropped Denim Jeans, Luv Aj Pony Leather jacket, Converse Sneakers, Common Muse Earrings, Galisfly Bracelet & Cluse Watch

Denim isn't going anywhere, this Spring, it's all about the cropped skinnies. I am trying this trend with the 7FAM Cropped High Waist Jeans. What to look for: straight-leg jeans in a medium or dark wash with a cropped hem. They look great with a simple T-shirt (here wearing with our Melissa Araujo V-Neck from our BASICS collection) layered with a leather jacket; but once the weather warms up, try them with a crop or tank top. For shoes, pair them with sneakers or sandals. These are ideal options for Spring and Summer, but come Fall you can pair them with ankle booties.

As with any new trend, it's important to style your outfit to flatter your silhouette. This casual jeans looks great with tailored pieces as well, like blazers and button-down shirts that balance it out. What I am wearing here could easily be paired with high heels or mules for a dressed up look.

DENIM TALK

WEARING: Melissa Araujo Turtleneck (Taking Pre-Orders Now), 7FAM Cropped High Waist Jeans, Galisfy Bracelet & Rings, Adidas Sneakers, Hieleven Bucket Bag & Dior Sunnies.

I don't wear as much blue denim as I should, I usually go for my black or white jeans; neglecting one of the most iconic and classic styles out there: blue denim.

Denim is one of those easy to style pieces, but sometimes it can be hard to shop for. You may think because most of them look the same they must all be the same. Premium denim is different. I was lucky enough to visit the 7 For All Mankind factories in LA and was amazed by the craftsmanship and care that goes into every piece they produce. This pair that I am wearing is super comfortable, laid back and I love the fraying details on the hem. You don't see it but they are also high waist (which is usually my favourite cut, holding everything in place).

True blue denim is timeless. A very versatile piece that you can wear day or night, at the office or to a party. I kept it casual with our new turtleneck (we are taking pre-orders if you are interested, leave a message below!) my new Hieleven Bucket Bag and sneakers as usual. It was a beautiful day out, which made it a bit easier when coming back from my beautiful vacation (pictures coming soon!)

ALL BLACK EVERYTHING

WEARING: Club Monaco Blazer and Cashmere Turtleneck, No Brand Culotte, Celine Trio Bag and Converse sneakers.

The weather continues to be cold and wet, over here has been raining most of the time. I mean Spring is almost here but I can certainly tell you, it sure does not feel like it. My everyday uniform lately has been a turtleneck, some comfortable pants that shows a bit of my ankles (in this case here culottes) and a pair of sneakers. That's how I have been surviving this weather.

The good news is after such a busy start of the year I have finally booked some time off and we are going on vacation! T-9 Days! I am literally counting down my sleeps, all I can think is the ocean, sunshine, salt water and drinks by the pool. My kind of getaway! Until then working hard to stay dry and warm.

Excited to share a few snaps taken with my iPhone 6 this past weekend at the Hey Jude Shop. I am showcasing my BASICS collection and Geometric Prints, they will be there until March 20th. If you live here or will be visiting Vancouver make sure to stop by, check out the designs, as well as all of the other cool clothing and items they have in store.

It has been great to collaborate with such creative females! Thank you Lauren & Lindsey for opening your shop to me and showing your support to independent designers! Shout out to all women today who are doing their own thing, pushing boundaries and being brave in whatever field you are. Thank you to the ones before us, who paved the way so we too could dream of being our own bosses. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Happy International Women's Day!
