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 »

Leather Legs

Consider this look the warmer cousin of the lampshading trend I wrote about last week; I call this one the leather legs look. Winter is officially here, never-ending snowfalls and all. Now is not the time to admit defeat and stow away all your dresses and skirts for the warmer months, but instead opt for over… Read more »

Lampshading

Lampshading; heard of it? Maybe not, but you’ve probably seen it here. Celebs have been donning their over the knee boots and oversized Yeezy sweaters everywhere lately and I’m kind of digging it. Oddly enough I can’t find sweaters long enough to pass as dresses for my 5’3ish frame, but I do own my fair… 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 »

Gone Tanning

Not tanning tanning obviously, I mean…have you seen this weather? I’m talking about tan accessories, like this steal-of-a-deal, camel-coloured Zara messenger bag.  It’s easy to start feeling a little drab this time of year; nature is literally dying (like the trees and leaves and stuff), it’s too frigid outside to carry your Starbucks to-go cup without your… Read more »

Black and Blue

No, no, no, not bruises, but colour combos! Remember the old myth that claimed you should never, under any circumstances, mix the colours black and blue in your ensemble? Well I’m here to disprove that dated legend, or at least make a strong visual case in favour of pairing these two rich winter hues together. Even though I’m not a big Game… 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 »

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 »

the blues

I know what you’re all thinking; have you seen the weather outside? A sleeveless summer dress and no tights?? I guess I’ve been away from Montreal for too long because somehow I forgot that our Fall/Winter season starts in September. Seriously, Summer didn’t even say goodbye, it just left. Rude. Anyways, due to this major lapse… Read more »
