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.
From the cool-girl vibe to the ’90s grunge style, the choker seems to be a trend the can suit any girl or any style. The good new is that the choker doesn’t go anywhere anytime soon, furthermore, recently there are so many different varieties that you can select from: Bold, Dainty, Lace, velvet or lace, anything goes. Just pick your favourite one.
Ettika is a Jewelry online company that carries variety of chokers with a bohemian chic vibe, which is definitely reflect my own style. I choose a choker with this cute bow detail in black and gold.
I think that statement accessories can be merged into simple look to add an element of fun and uniqueness. I love how the choker pop up against the electric blue colour, giving it another dimension. Of course for a casual day look, I dressed it a bit down with these winter lace up boots and finished it with an oversized cardigan.

There is nothing like a wooly oversized sweater to warm up the cooler month, so when I saw this sweater from French Connection, I knew I will be living in it all winter long. I love the texture and the soft wool, which is so comfy. True to be told, I can’t wear a sweater that itches even if it a good looking one. I happen to have few knits that I barely wore because I couldn’t stand the feeling of them, when it touched my skin.
To balance the oversized silhouette and to add some edginess to my look, I paired it with skinny jeans, that have these fringe details in the bottom. These sneakers with the high top cut are a cool alternative to ankle boots and they provide maximum comfort.

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.

Since Toronto winter is endless, I decided to create a spring look by incorporating pastel shades into my winter items: A cream fur coat, light peach cardigan and beige suede boots. The key to transitioning from winter to spring is also by adding sheer fabrics like this lightweight skirt with the soft pleats from Aritiza.
As the temperature decreases way below the zero (unfortunately it’s happen too many times recently), My lack of energy has been increased. Hiding behind layers and layers of clothing in order to stay warm, make me want to stay in bed all day.
Unfortunately my vacation in Israel is over. At least I have some great memories of the precious moments with my family and friends, and of course some new clothes, so I can share it with you…
