“Sarah Pacini”


Parka

What a dramatic landscape, don’t you think? Winter can be so harsh sometimes, but also have its treasures, like this magnificent scenery.

Sam and I did this shoot while we where exploring the shoes of the St. Lawrence river in Rivière-du-Loup, with a very good friend. We definitely couldn’t resist taking many pictures!

The cold color palette was amazing, and my parka just fit the scene perfectly! When I purchased it, I chose it for its deep grey color, which I think suits my complexion, and stunning cotton fabric, which looks like denim! Together, they make this piece unusual and original. I also love the 8 pockets! I have so many pockets that I don’t even know which one to put my stuff in! And of course, this parka is warm enough to face the Canadian winter. It is loose enough to wear a big sweater or a vest underneath without looking like the Michelin man!

It’s a wonderfully versatile winter coat. One that is warm enough for an afternoon excursion along the water or stylish enough for a walk around the city.

Sweet November

November is full of lovely colors! And this year, we have been lucky to have mild temperatures, which has encouraged to go for walks instead of sipping hot beverages in a coffee shop!

Lately, I have been wearing this camisole adorned with a fine and delicate lace. It’s a very practical basic to have in one’s wardrobe because this kind of detail enhances every look. You can pair it with a high waisted skirt or jeans, or under a plunging neckline sweater or a cardigan. The effect is always tasteful!

Because it’s fall and I love to be cozy and warm, I chose this chunky knit cardigan. This season, you can find many different styles to choose from in boutiques! There is something for every taste. I opted for this one because I love its collar and its length, which are easier to style for work. Just add a pretty brooch to pin the cardigan’s collar. It instantly looks even more sophisticated!

Sophisticated Women

Do not judge a book by its cover, but…

It’s kind of strange to think that clothes can make us feel completely different! Every time I wear this outfit, I feel like a women. Not in terms of femininity, especially with this androgynous look… but in the way that I really feel like myself. In my opinion, being a women (or a men) is being authentic. It’s to truly know who we are and to be connected with one’s inner self. And this is how these clothes make me feel! Maybe because I’m simple yet sophisticated!

What do you think, do you feel this way sometimes?

All Black Basics

I love bold looks made from basic pieces.

Here are charcoal rip-kneed skinny jeans worn to contrast the formal style of a wool turtle neck, and a long boiled wool cardigan, tied at the back, to stay stylish on a cool fall day.

A head to toe all black look can be very interesting if you play with different dark tones. Blending black, charcoal and anthracite is always a good idea!

You will find these basics at Tiger of Sweden Montreal.

Déjà Vu

Here are two pieces that I previously showed you here and here. They are versatile items so I wanted to style them differently to give you some new ideas.

The blouse is definitely perfect worn with a high waisted bottom because it drapes beatifully to the waistline. The plunging neckline and sheer silk back are suggestive. That’s why I balanced the look with classic culotte pants. By revealing only a small amount of skin and adding very few accessories, it’s possible to be elegant and seductive at the same time.

Culotte pants and high-heeled sandals are a wonderful combination. The heels lengthen the legs and give an impression of lightness, despite the flared cut of the pants that can sometimes seem heavy.

I love when my clothes are versatile and can be mixed in many different ways!

A Walk under the Buds

I love this time of the year when nature suddenly wakes up. The leaves are not completely grown in and the sunset light can easily peer through the lime green tree branches. And this idyllic backdrop inspired me to take a long walk under the buds.

To blend in better, I matched my outfit with this color palette! And because I never neglect comfort when walking, I opted for a silk top, cotton pants, and my newest acquisition: my white sneakers. I will talk about them in detail in my next post!

See you soon!

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!

Transition

It’s not spring yet, but we definitely can start to prepare for it! For example, this coat is the ideal transitional piece. Worn with a big sweater, a huge scarf, some gloves and a knitted hat, it’s absolutely perfect for the warmer days in March. It’s also superb worn as a vest and combined with a tee, a pant and a pair of pumps. I will show you that look as soon as the weather allows, I promise!

Raw Umber Color

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!

Panorama

I love to contemplate Montreal’s panorama and this place, Summit Circle, is a pretty well-kept secret that offers a breathtaking view! In the middle of the day, I like to come here to clear my mind and center myself, even during a cold January day!
