Playing with Whites

A tone on tone look, with a little twist…

To break the classic perfect all white look, it’s trendy to play with other tones like ivory, cream or light grey. This way, the outfit is more interesting to look at and gives the impression that it wasn’t perfectly planned… and more relaxed.

It’s also really hard to get a 100% perfect all white look! Most of the time, there’s a slight difference between the two pieces. By embracing the different tones, it definitely eliminates the pointless color puzzle!

Soft Trench

It has been cold and rainy in Montreal lately, and this soft trench is the perfect piece to cope with this kind of weather. It’s a light and flexible coat that moves with the body. This one is made of lyocell, a fiber that is soft, durable and comfortable, but still green and biodegradable.

Combined with a striped tee and white pants, this look allows you to adjust to varying weather, while remaining elegant, feminine and relaxed.

Spring Day

Last Friday was the first pretty day of spring in Montreal, and I didn’t hesitate to put on my leopard espadrilles and go bask in the sun! As you may know by now, I get chilly easily, so I opted for a turtleneck sweater. This one is definitely my favorite. I love how its loose collar can be styled in different ways. Unfolded, it can cover my nose, but I like to fold it inward for a contemporary look, or place it haphazardly for a relaxed and casual look. And, do you remember this blazer? I found it at 70% off last year–what a find! I love its loose fit and it’s definitely a good quality piece which adds elegance to every outfit. To complete the look, I chose a white pant and some caramel and golden accessories to reflect this beautiful spring light!

Bal Harbour Shops

The gray days are perfect for shopping! Especially in Bal Harbour near Miami… A wonderful place to window shop among the fountains, palm trees, pools full of fish and lovely fashion boutiques.

 I’m never bored when I go to the Chinese lantern exhibition at the Botanical Gardens of Montreal. I go back every year and every time I’m amazed by all the colors! For the occasion, I chose clothes that are very comfortable: a cashemire sweater, stretchy pants and flexible shoes as comfortable as a pair of slippers… Dressed in white, I was amused to see the multicolored bursts of light shining on me throughout the evening!

Polka Dots

 I love everything polka doted and I sincerely think that dots are a modern and sober alternative to leopard prints, which are currently en vogue. It’s interesting to play with patterns and to match accessories… But not to be too “matchy matchy”, I like to break up the look with stripes! What do you think?
