LAYERS


WEARING: Oak + Fort Jacket, Melissa Araujo Crop Top, Club Monaco Dress Shirt & Sunnies, No Brand Culottes, Alexander Wang Marion Bag, The Bound Cuffs by THPS and Vans Sneakers.

Here is to another week all dressed in black, I love my whites, but lately I have been in a more practical mood; black seems to be the right choice for the weather. I would normally wear this with skinny jeans or leather leggings, instead I opted for the culottes. It gives a whole other vibe to the look. I am channeling the masculine, and oversized side of things.

Sometimes when you wear all black it can be hard to tell which piece is which, and where one starts and the other ends. I am wearing one of our Linear Crop top's over a long sleeve dress shirt, to maximize my Summer items even during Winter, and as we transition into Spring. I can't afford to buy something new all the time, if you are like me this is a good styling exercise for your creative skills. Just work with items you already have in your closet, and see what combinations you can come up with. Let me know if it works for you. In case you missed have a look here how I styled the same crop top this past Summer.

CULOTTES

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

My friend M'c Kenneth and I were overdue for a catch up session, so we took the opportunity to take some photos and do a late lunch. Sometimes you get so busy that you forget to set aside time for yourself and the things that you enjoy doing. The weather continues to be confused, sunny one moment and pouring rain the next, these shots were no exception. Regardless we had a great time.

I am a big believer that something which may no longer be good for one person, can be a treasure to another. This high waist wool culotte is an example of that; it was my friend's and she no longer wanted them. I took it home, added some extra loving by taking off buttons, cutting out some over designs, and voila the culottes found a new home. I love how wide the legs are, and as much as I love skinny cuts, it is always good to try something new. It makes me happy to see that the "world of fashion" is finally embracing what most of us already knew: sneakers are the way to go! Heels for me have always been for special occasions, I am more of a sneaker girl myself. What about you?

WHERE IS SPRING?


WEARING: H&M Conscious Collection Coat, Acne Turtleneck, Club Monaco Trousers & Converse High Tops.

It has been difficult lately for me to visit other blogs and Instagram accounts. Why you may ask; well, half of my friends live in hot weather climates, where they all seem to be hanging out at beach houses, or Carnival parties. The other half live in cold places that just happen to have hit Spring way earlier than Canada. I am ready to retire my beloved winter coats and turtlenecks who so faithfully have kept me warm, these past 6 months. I am dreaming of skirts, tanks, cut off shorts, and sandals.

I am keeping away from some social medias, otherwise I will just get depressed. To all my Brazilian and Australian friends, sorry you won't be hearing much from me until Spring arrives up here. Meanwhile I will wait patiently, working hard in the studio to get things moving, so when the sun does comes out I can spend lots of time with my friends on the beach and enjoy the warmth.
