“Joie”


Knot It Out

I really love simple ideas that enhance a look!

Simply knot an oversize tee to complement the waistline. Here, I deliberately made the knot on the opposite side of the pocket to create an interesting asymmetrical detail.

These little ideas make a big difference in styling. What do you think?

Hot Sun

On this day in Prague, Sam and I climbed Petrin Hill and a hundred flights of stairs, and visited a castle. All under a hot sun! For days like this, there is no question regarding my outfit: I opted for the most comfortable, light and practical option.

First, I chose my best pair of walking shoes, obviously, my white sneakers!

Then, I opted for clothes that are made from natural fibers. This t-shirt is made of a very light cotton and these shorts are 85% silk and 15% wool. Yes, It’s an unusual combination, but the wool adds significant durability to the silk!

I prefer loose clothes when it’s very warm outside. I like to feel the breeze between my skin and the fabric. It’s refreshing!

As you can imagine, I avoid wearing black! It would have been nice to have had a hat that day, as well, to cover my dark hair…

For accessories, in addition to sunglasses, I brought a bottle of water, my camera and lenses as well as a light sweater and scarf to extend my day out beyond sunset. I put everything in this backpack that is so practical because it’s foldable and easily stored. For items I used more often (phone, map, etc.), I had a small leather bag for greater conveniences.

I had a wonderful day even if it was very warm! Sam had a harder time enjoying our day because of his black jeans, dark t-shirt and his more formal shoes… 😉

Chalk and Ice Cream

It’s always charming to see children’s drawings on the pavement. It’s definitely pretty and it brightens any walk. It makes me crave ice cream (or maybe it’s just because it’s very warm outside). My love (the man behind the lens) and I treated ourselves to the best ice cream in Montreal, Kem Coba. So no, I didn’t eat both of these cones!

On weekends, I like to wear comfortable clothes, so it’s the perfect time to pull out my boyfriend jeans! This pair is damaged, but not to much, and I really love its faded blue which is the perfect tone for summer. I paired it with my reversible belt which has a golden on one side and zebra on the other. To stay in this palette, I opted for my leopard espadrilles and my bucket bag that I bring with me everywhere these days! And finally, I finished the look with an off-white tee which features a pretty neckline at the back. It even has small ties to attached the t-shirt to a bra strap in order to prevent the shoulders from slipping. So practical!

Grey Day

The week promises to be cool and rainy in Montreal, so it’s not time yet to store away our coats! I love this one because it has a timeless classic cut, and it goes perfectly with this long scarf which falls almost precisely to the hem of the coat! I accessorized it with pieces I like a lot: my quilted rain boots, my transparent umbrella, my felt/leather bag and my python belt. And it probably immediately caught your eye: today I dare for the first time to wear red lipstick on my blog! When it’s grey outside, I really love to play with colorful little details, and red lips instantly add punch!

Valentine

I’m not really interested in wearing pink or red hearts on Valentine’s Day. For an evening out with my man, I prefer having an elegant and romantic look… And nothing makes you  feel sophisticated and mysterious like dressing all in black! So, for the occasion, I opted for a delicate silk top and a fitted skirt to subtly suggest my silhouette. And… what do you think of my “faux bob”? It is by far my favorite hairstyle right now (and the man behind the lens agrees).  Happy Valentine’s!

Feminine Plaid

This fall, plaid is very trendy! What I particularly love about this shirt is the fact that it’s feminine. It’s a far cry from the traditional woodcutter shirt! Its translucent silk makes it airy and adds a sophisticated touch. With a leather jacket and black pumps, this look is perfect for a casual dinner with friends!
