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!
Today I feel a bit like Alice in Wonderland! To offset this fuchsia forest, I opted for a classic black and white look. And the show stopper of this outfit is, without a doubt, the blazer. It reminds me of a Chanel tweed jacket with its diamond prints and fringes. It’s definitely a timeless piece, which is also very easy to match. You can wear it to work with a suit, with jeans on the weekend, or you can wear it while rock’n out in sneakers, a leather skirt or a pair of boyfriend jeans. It can be classic or, when paired with more casual pieces, add a touch of class. Best of all, because it’s black and white, all shoe colors are allowed! To not compete with the decor, I opted for a pair of nude pumps! A must for every wardrobe, nude pumps lengthen the silhouette, lighten the look of colorful or overloaded outfits and go with absolutely everything. And finally, I love this shirt’s pleated dropped back… Exactly the kind of detail I look for!
You will find this jacket and this shirt at Vestibule boutique!
At this time of the year, I desperately need to see more colors! That’s why my eye immediately noticed this vibrant red Velvet shirt. I like its unusual pattern as it steps away from the traditional plaid with its jumble of squares and broken lines. And, to be even more cozy, I pulled out an oversized cardigan. Did you notice the detail in the knit? Yes, squares–the perfect match for this red shirt!
You will find these 2 pretty pieces at Chance boutique!
It took me a long time to take the plunge and get this coat. Actually, I immediately loved its cut and its raw umber color. But I hesitated, as this color is pretty hard to wear… Particularly because it doesn’t flatter the complexion. The trick is simple: to wear this coat with a scarf! This way, the vibrant color no longer clashes with the skin tone, and it’s possible to create multiple color combinations. Here, I opted for a light blue/green scarf, but this coat is really pretty with fuchsia and multicolored prints as well. It’s definitely worth it to follow your intuition!

I really like to be warm and cozy, so if you run into me on a harsh winter’s day, you will probably find me wrapped up in my down coat. The trick to not being cold is to layer. Personally, I wear a hood over my knitted cap (or as we call it in Canada: a tuque), a long sleeve tee under a huge wool sweater, 2 pairs of socks, a long scarf that I can wrap around my neck twice, some gloves lined with wool and some very warm footwear. My boots are my best purchase from last year. These are from UGG’s “Event” line. They are very warm, comfortable and waterproof, but they still allow your feet to breathe. A must if you live in a northern country!
I love to wear white all year round. In winter, I opt for more textured pieces like this really warm angora sweater, which is exactly the perfect tint to match both cold (like this blue/green scarf) and warm colors. It goes well with everything, even if I wear it with a white silk blouse. This sweater is absolutely gorgeous with any colorful top as well!
Today, I felt a bit like Little Red Riding Hood… but in gray… and without the Big Bad Wolf! I love to take walks in the forest, and there was something truly magical about this clearing… It was like something straight out of a children’s story!
What an amazing place! This urban art site was created in conjunction with the Van Gogh exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. I was very surprised when I arrived because I realized that from one point of view, the pointillism patterns were blue, and from another perspective, they were red and orange. We had a lot of fun making this photo shoot and we are very happy with the result! I particularly love the contrast between the shades of gray of the outfit and the colors of the street art!
