I like when women blur the line between masculine and feminine silhouettes, it’s add an interesting twist to an outfit. It’s playful and edgy. When it’s come to fashion, it’s better to dare than be boring… Life is all about taking chances!
Spring is finally arrives in Toronto, so I decided to celebrate it with vivid and bright colours. My BCBG fuchsia jacket goes very well with the powder pink peplum top. I love the pop of bright pink and the combination between masculine and feminine elements (the boyfriend jeans and the sweet top).
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 …
Recently one of my favourite look is the matching suit two-piece. I choose to wear a skirt suit from Club monaco. The animal prints gives it the modern twist, I was looking for. The dedicated prints add a stylish vibe without overwhelming. I mixed it up with an animal prints gloves but to break up the boldness, I kept the other accessories in solid black and white (hat and boots).
The first time I saw these pieces, I was not sure whatever it will work together as a suit and I wanted to avoid from impulse buying, so I gave myself one day to think about it. As you can imagine I was thinking about it obsessively. This was my sign. The next day I had new members in my closet and a big smile on my face. It’s true what they say: retail therapy does makes you happier

As I am getting to my due to date, it’s harder to find clothes that fit me well. Fashion has always been an integral part in my life, so I keep myself updated with the latest trends via fashion magazines and fashion website. I still dreaming of the day I will be able to fit into my old clothes and obviously I can’t wait to start a new shopping spree with my pre pregnancy body. But until it happened, here is my latest outfit:
I have fallen in love with this black and white stripe blazer from River Island. I’ve been wearing it a lot lately. This blazer is long enough to deal with my growing belly and I can wear it with almost everything. I’ve paired it with a printed T-shirt and black leggings (both from Zara). The statement necklace and the high heels gives the look a effortlessly chic touch, that can take you from day to night.

I didn’t think I would wear a cow print trousers, but from my experience,when it’s come to fashion, never say never! The first time I saw this cow animal motif was when Givenchy introduce their Pre Fall 2013 collection. I love the fun approach they added to their collection without losing the classic silhouette.
I bought my trousers in Zara.The eye catching prints attracted me immediately, I couldn’t remain indifferent, so I had to buy them! (even so I swore I will not buy another pants until I will give birth…) I love the monochromatic black and white prints, which make the look more classy and less bold. I wore it with a pale pink blazer and black T-shirt from Mango. To complete the look, I added my structured tote bag which has a yellow contrast part. This is my way to spice up my look with a cheerful splash of bright colour. If the sun has no plan to arrive, I will bring the sun on my own, with my wardrobe…

As you saw in my previous post, I really love the use of black and white together. Now I am ready to take the second step: adding contrast bright colour- Yellow. Beside my love to this cheerful energetic colour, this contrasts makes things more interesting. I think that by mixing together monochromatic with brights brings out fun but powerful statement. This animal pattern scarf in yellow from Zara (they have such a great selection of colourful scarves) gives the classy look a refreshing boost. It has immediately positive affect on my mood. I guess this is the reason why I keep on smiling in these pictures (ok, maybe it’s also because I was on my way to a weekend trip in Dusseldorf ,Germany…)
One of the latest trend for Spring 2013 is the Two tone combination. The two tone can appear in any form ,shape and item. Personally I prefer pieces that features with two bold tone like black and blue (even so, the monochromatic black and white are still my first choice so far.)
This dress is my recent purchase from Zara, spring collection. It was really love from the first sight especially in these day, when my belly is getting bigger an bigger. you guess it right, I’m pregnant and I can’t hide it any more. It is quite challenging mission to find clothes that will look good on my body, but I will continue trying, I am not the type of preson who will give up dressing, even in an hard times.
This look is all about graphic shape combine with bold colours: black and blue for the dress, and beige, yellow and black for my bag (which I bought last week in River Island in my weekend trip to Amsterdam). The boots is my way to keep the look comfy and effortless without losing the classy touch
Hope you like it 🙂

Sometimes when I am trying too hard to plan an outfit ahead of time, it doesn’t work so well. The lace of time in a busy morning can lead to some unique and fashionable choices. I like to mix and match and dress according to my mood apparently, it might work the best when it comes instinctively and unplanned
This outfit was chosen in those busy morning, when I had to get ready in a few minutes. The reason was an amazing trip to Baden-Baden, a german town near the black forest. The weather was chilly but the atmosphere was electric and warm
I describe this look comfortable and functional with a twist. Hope you like it:)

Yep, I ‘ve still have more pictures from London, I wanted to share with you guys. (I can’t get over this amazing city). The weather in the third and the fourth day of my tour was no longer sunny… The rain was about to take control of the situation, at least it was not so cold and I still love London no weather what….
I decicded to wear somthing comfortable for a long walk, which included a city tour in all the attraction (beside fashion there are more to see in London) and the famous place. In order to be faithful to my fashionista side, I combined between my stude sneakers and my printed blazer over a romantic lace blouse. I kept my look warm and cozy by adding the wool oversized coat.
I ended up eating hummus in the best place in London: Hummus Bros. As an Israeli, I really miss this mediterranean food, which included fresh vegetable. giant salad, tahini and hummus and of course, pita (for me the whole wheat version)
Have a great weekend:)
