Winter Fun

As a parent of a child with autism, any spontaneous trip can be very challenging. Outdoor activity require a lot of preparation before, like using a visual schedule so they will be able to deal with the all changes in their routine and to know what to expect while on vacation. anything which is not familiar to them can be overwhelming, try to wear a hat to prevent hair loss problem.therefore we didn’t know what to expect when we decided to spend our Saturday at Blue Mountain in a short notice… luckily my son had a great day, the transitions from one activity to another went smoothly and he didn’t suffer from any meltdown.

I love traveling with my family, these fun moments with my kids are priceless and very important for our bonding, therefore I am willing to push the limits (yes, I am taking the chance that something can go wrong…) and encourage my little one to deal with changes and different atmosphere, while experience the world.

I didn’t go skiing so I could wear my cozy sweater and jeans. I finished off the look with a bright red hat, that adds a fantastic pop of colour and create a cool touch. The weather was surprisingly pleasant and I could even pulled off my gloves.

Old is new again

Recently I found myself shopping in my own closet, trying to find old bargains, that can be wear again. Needless to say how many items I have collected in all these recent years. Among all the stuff, I found this tailored blazer, which I got few years ago when I was working as a stylish at BCBG. This Blazer was neglected in my closet and I completely forgot about it’s existence.

I defiantly think that it’s not a bad idea to shop in your own closet once an a while, and getting a new wardrobe without spending money. The whole idea is to refresh your look and give it a new life, by adding new accessories like the statement ring and the wrap necklace which I got from Topaz.

Blazer is one of the most versatile item in your closet and never go out of style, therefore, it’s worth to invest on a quality one. this structured blazer is an essential piece which can upgrade any outfit and make it look more polished.

I admit that as much as I love wearing oversized pieces, sometimes I feel like my shape gets lost in all these layers and easy breezy fabrics. I opt for a belt which add more definition to the tailored blazer. I wore it as a top, without a shirt underneath, trying to keep my look simple but still playful.

Winter life

when it comes to winter look, I am always trying to think outside the box, like mixing different textures together and playing with proportion, by paying attention to all the little details. Truth to be told, being a fashion blogger means willing to pose for photos outside in frigid temperatures, wearing heels and dress and pretending like you are not freezing at all. Well, I can’t deny it, sometimes I have the urge to show off my outfit underneath the heavy coat. The result is sacrifices my warmth and comfort for few moments and hopping that I am not going to catch a cold…

Anyway, here is what I wore underneath my Uniqlo coat in my last vacation, strolling through the charming streets of Old Montreal with my family. This look is all about effortless style, which is comfort yet polish. The timeless fur vest get a fresh new feel with the feminine blouse, that features delicate ruffle detailing along the sleeves and of course well-matched accessories to complete the outfit.

Charming days of fall

Because I am terrified of the Canadian winter, I don’t really taking the time to appreciate the charming autumn. The short fall followed by an endless winter is probably the main reason, but there is no doubt that the fall is the most beautiful season, the crisp leaves and the changes of colours around creates this wonderful romantic scene.

It’s quite warm here, so luckily I can still worn easy breezy dresses (I guess it’s not for long…). I love this dress because there is something so relaxed, yet the tailored details gives it a classy- pull together feel. I paired it with burgundy booties and light trench coat.

Summer mix and match

With all the joy and happiness that summer evokes, there is something that can be quite annoying for all the fashionistas out there. How to make a statement look and express your  own individuality, When it’s so hot and humid outside.
Quite often I find myself tending to wear the same denim short and a breezy light shirt, for braving the hot temperature.
But I do believe that there are creative ways to pull off summer look without looking scruffy. Thinking out of the box, and literally don’t be not afraid to sweat a bit….

Mix of prints:
I decided to wear this gingham boxy fit top with a tile printed skirt in a soft and airy breathable garment. The boxy top and the flowy skirt create the perfect balance. The one print on top and a different one on bottom is also a great way to create an optical illusion and flattering your body, and of course it’s a great way to make a stylish statement, without putting too much efforts in to it.
For bohemian touch, I added a fringe bag and gladiator strappy gladiator sandals.

Summer sale instead of dreamy vacation

Summer is in full swing in Toronto, in the last few days it’s becoming crazy hot and humid in here, although I know that I shouldn’t complain about the weather. Being outside with a heavy bulky coat and chunky boots during the cold winter season is definitely more annoying (and less stylish) then wearing a light weight summer dress, when you fully exposed to the blazing sun on these days when the humidity is too high.

off the shoulder

The warm temps along with the holiday atmosphere, elevate my desire for an exotic getaway, which I can’t afford right now. My dreamy vacation on an romantic island will postpone to another time. Meanwhile, I will cheer myself up with the summer sale that is already started. Zara here I come….

To beat the summer heat, I was wearing off the shoulder top with a flowy white skirt and a colourful strap heels, that added a fresh and playful touch.

Looking stylish yet comfortable

As a mother of two energetic boys, which means tons of sport activities in the park, I always tend to wear effortless pieces, without skipping on my own personal style. Few years ago I used to wear high heels on a regular basis, bu I had no other choice but changing this habit, once I realized that running after my sons with stiletto is quite impossible. I must admit that I am actually love the idea of wearing sneakers, mainly because it adds this cool vibe, and it looks great with almost any outfit you paired with. The daily basis activity with my two precious kids, really changed the way I am dressing and the way I see fashion. Functionality and fashion can defiantly go hand to hand.

Geox shoes is the proof that footwear can be comfortable and good looking at the same time, both for my kids and for me. Clearly you don’t need to give up your style by the name of comfort.
I got these white wedge sneakers because it’s a versatile option to go from day to night. the sneakers has a breathable technical fabric, so I can wear them all day long without loosing any aspect of comfort. The hidden wedge, provide an illusion of height and it’s also a perfect way to add a touch of femininity to any casual look.

Faux fur vest as an essential piece for Fall 2015

When I think of bohemian style, I think of fringe, suede, kimono and bell sleeves, ponchos, floppy hats, patchwork, ruffles, and of course fur vests. It’s seems like I can’t get enough of this boho trend, because I am simply adore every single element, colour or fabric that resemble the hippie 70s look.

How to choose the right look with your Faux fur

Faux fur vest is one of the most stylish and luxe ways to keep warm during the chilly days of October. I love the cozy feel and the fact that it’s adding an extra layer of warmth to any outfit. If to be honest, the only issue I have with fur vest, is that it’s tend to add bulk. Needless to say that I have no desire to add unnecessary extra weight to my appearance, but I also believe that fashion is all about taking chances.

The key is balance, it’s important to wear something light and thin underneath fur. I am also suggest to play with pattern and textures, in order to create a modern and interesting look

I put this look together with a trendy fall pieces: oxford shoes and culottes pants. To keep the look soft and feminine, I wore it with a airy white shirt with a unique flirty details, that also embrace the 70s. I love the combination between femininity and masculinity. The luxe bohemian details get a modern twist with the ‘borrow from the boys’ shoes.
