Salted Caramel

October is finally here! Among the usual oversize-sweatered hands carrying PSLs and scrolling through caramel-coloured Pinterest boards, there is that all too familiar dressing woe; how does one prepare for morning’s Arctic temperatures, but also survive the afternoon’s blazing heat? Layering is definitely key, but I won’t lie to you; you’ll have to brave the brief morning chill in order… Read more »

Leather and Layers

Montreal, is that you all nice and hot?? Not sure how much longer I can sport leather legs in this warming weather, but I’m not complaining about the balmy temperatures this week! When the weather is as fickle as your study habits (it’s not just me, right guys??), layering up and down is the way… Read more »

Winter White

Is there anything bolder than fighting the greyish muck of Winter 2016 with a crisp white blazer? Whether this move is daring or just plain dumb (hellooo, slush stains!), you have to admit it makes a statement. The great thing about blazers is the endlessly versatile options for how you can wear them. I’ve been really into the shoulder… Read more »

Transitional Trench

Winter is here…! Alas, only recently. Before the overly generous snowfall a couple weeks ago, ‘winter’ was a series of ridiculously hot days and while I was enjoying the balmy weather, getting ready in the morning was always accompanied by the irritating “what do I wear?” chant playing on repeat in my head. I’ve been more than ready to… Read more »

Casual Friday

Dark times are upon us folks, and you all know it; that awkward limbo between midterms and finals, lamenting over how many fall Insta posts are too many, and – something I can hopefully help you with – wondering how the hell you’re supposed to dress for Montreal weather that’s more hot and cold than Katy Perry circa ’08. Yup,… Read more »

Shades of Grey

Baby it’s cold outside. Finally! I know I’m pretty hot and cold about Montreal weather, but I love a good excuse to start layering up in any and all shades of grey. Not just any old grey stuff though, but wool. From skirts to sweaters and tailored trench jackets, wool is the only way to… Read more »

Mixing and Matching

Though it may not be for everyone, I’m someone who loves playing with different shapes and patterns in clothing, and sometimes like to mix a little bit of both for some extra pizzaz (I will take any excuse to use that word). When I picked up this printed skirt from Zara, I played by the… Read more »

Rad Plaid

I love a sexy LBD as much as the next girl, but it can be hard to make the classic nighttime essential a daytime appropriate outfit. That’s why dressing down a look is just as important as dressing it up to create that day to night ease. This is where the trusty plaid shirt comes… Read more »

precious

Nope, not the fantastic 2009 film Precious…think more Gollum from Lord of the Rings; “my precious, my precious.” Give up yet? Precious stones. More like boulders, actually. Boulder bling? Whatever you want to call it, I have been experiencing a mild obsession with rock jewellery, rings in particular. The key with this trend is to keep it minimalistic, meaning… Read more »

layering

We layer our hair, we layer our clothes, why not layer our accessories? I’ve never really been into big chunky jewellery, but lately I’ve been compromising by layering a lot of my favourite delicate pieces, whether its rings, bracelets or in this case, necklaces. The beauty of layering is that it can work for very casual outfits,… Read more »
