“Mansur Gavriel”


The Pleated Skirt

Hi everyone!

I hope you’ve had a wonderful summer so far!

I’ve had an extremely busy one, working in three different acupuncture clinics and planning a very special upcoming event: my wedding!!!

I had to reorganize my schedule because I work 12 hours a day during the week and plan my wedding on weekends. Unfortunately, my busy life left me less time to invest in my blog, which makes me sad, but at the same time, I’m extremely happy and grateful to have such a rewarding profession and to be so in love with my fiancé! I assure you that everything will be back to normal after my wedding and honeymoon in September.

Speaking of wedding, I had the chance to go to few ceremonies this summer, and this pleated skirt was just the perfect item! I love the way it makes waves as I walk. It’s a romantic, feminine and elegant item that is also versatile—I love to wear it with heels and a delicate blouse for a special event or dressed down whit a long sweater and my rose gold mules for a romantic dinner with my fiancé.

Frelighsburg

Sam and I did this photo shoot 3 weeks ago in Frelighsburg (time goes so fast!), one of the prettiest village in the province of Quebec. That day, the weather was warm and the sun was radiant. What a wonderful fall we have been having!

I really love to play with transitional layering. By rolling up the sleeves of a coat to reveal the details of the shirt underneath or by turning up a collar with a delicate print, in this case stripes, it’s possible to create a unique outfit. This way, our favorite pieces take on a new look!

Casual Elegance

At Les Étoffes boutique, I immediately noticed these two pieces! I love the asymmetrical and pleated details of the skirt, and the pearl buttons at the back of the blouse. To me, this outfit is the perfect balance of elegance, originality and everyday comfort.

I could have styled it with black heeled sandals, but I opted for my black and orange ballerinas to create a variation on the classic black and white look. And with my Cammello Mansur Gavriel bag, I think the effect is perfect!

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!

Dress Season

I always find that time of the year when you first wear a little dress without extra layers a little strange. I wonder if the warm weather is truly here! And then, a doubt grows inside me… Am I going to be cold? Is my skirt to short? And I admit, I’m always a bit shocked to realize how white my legs are! But the moment I step outside, all my worries melt away as I enjoy the moment and this pleasant breeze that caressing my skin. The little dress season has officially started!

Waterlily and Dragonfly

This silk blouse reminds me of spring with its dragonfly cufflinks and its waterlily print. But, because it’s not still very warm in Montreal, I paired it with a sweater and my favorite transitional coat! I admit, I opted for some pretty light flats, but I assure you that I wasn’t cold at all while walking and admiring the 60’s architecture of Place des Arts.

Have a nice week everyone!

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!
