In day 2 of Toronto fashion week, I was invited to see some of my favourite designers. One of them was Melissa Nepton.
The Montreal based designer showcased an amazing collection. She gave a sophisticated and modern interpretation to her casual lifestyle design. I adore her ability to create a collection for an everyday wear that combine between sporty and femininity style .The collection looks extremely comfortable but still very fashionable with a hint of glam. I love the relaxed fit pants, the atheletic details and the unexpected textures
Toronto fashion week is my favorite event of the year. For someone who breathe and live fashion, this stylish event is an heaven. This is the place to let my creativity flow and get inspired by all the fashionable people who share a great sense of style. The only thing that undermining my happiness was the chilly weather, which lead me to change my outfits planning. In day 1 the weather was extremely cold and windy, that hasn’t stopped me from wearing spring colours, but to beat the winter chill I was wearing layers. I love pastels colours, so I have tried to build an outfit that combine between two shade of light baby blue (biker jacket and skinny pants) and powder pink (peplum top). To add some contrast to the trendy look, I wore sneakers. It’s also functional, I needed a comfy shoes for taking the subway afterward. Back to my real life …
I have a shopaholic confession to make, last Friday I went to Eaton Centre for body pump class, my favorite workout . But with all the respect to body pump, shopping is still my first priority whem it’s come to sport activity.Therefore I found myself wandering through the fashion retail stores, trying to avoid any unnecessary item, but then I saw the big sign on the display window of French Connection: forty percent of the entire store for only three days. Of course that at that moment I completely forgot everything I reminded myself again and again a few minutes earlier. I felt like I have to buy an item or two from the wonderful spring-summer collection. I fell in love at first sight with a high waisted trousers. I do not know what attracted me the most, the pastels colour, the floral prints that looks more like an abstract paint or the high waisted chic pants. It was probably the combination of all together … I didn’t let those pants to slip from my hands. I went directly to the fitting room, just to make sure I chose the right size. This is certainly the beginning of a beautiful and fashionable relationship.
In order to give the pants most of the focus, I wore it with a blue knit top from Urban Outfitters and wedge sandals that were purchased last year from Nine west. The colour scheme I chose was harmonic and it was suit perfectly to a relaxed weekend. Related accessories are also contributing to complete the outfit: ice coffee in one hand and the I Pad (I bought as a gift to my husband’s birthday) in the other hand.
