Sleeveless Trench

This year's 'summer' weather in Toronto seems to act up pretty often I must say. If living in this city has taught me anything.. it's the unpredictable power of the WEATHER. That's not to say I don't love my city, but seriously...

That's why owning a sleeveless trench in my opinion is a pretty perfect piece to have in one's wardrobe. You're a weather-ready superstar! I got this lovely trench dress from Banana Republic and wear it almost everywhere as a sleeveless trench vest by leaving it undone when worn and without the belt. Why a trench dress you ask?-- because...

SHOP MY PICKS



Porcelain Walls

Nothing seems to get me more excited than going to new places and new museums. Got the opportunity to visit Aga Khan with my girlfriend Therese of Artiese Studios. Let me tell you it was the wrong day to wear black, hence why most of the documented visuals shows me hiding in the shade later. But the wall large walls definitely make it feel much more cool and Greece-looking than it really is. Regardless it's a beautiful museum that celebrates Islamic art.

Wearing all black seems to call out several different moods and going to a space like Aga Khan kind of made me feel super minimalist-- and that allowed me to...

Morning Glory

PINSPIRATION INTERIOR THURSDAY


Today's interior pinspiration is...inspired by one of my favourite contemporary artists, Lisa Madigan, and her Kaleidoscope collection featuring her piece called 'Morning Glory.' This morning I felt I had to share these wonderful Pinterest finds from my interior board since I have a hidden soft spot for interior and all things muted. Because just look at those greys, pinks and pinches of black! ...and gold too. Oh how I also love mixing old regal retails to contemporary minimal spaces. My days of watching Debbie Travis and Martha Stewart probably lead me down this route. Here to me hoping one day I'll be able to find and of course afford a large enough space to do all this decor work. Most likely not be in Toronto in this case.

White Overalls

Nothing screams youth and summer like rocking a pair of overalls.

To elevate the look and make it look more mature and feminine, I paired the pinafore dress with a lace off the shoulder top from The Reformation. (An amazing eco-friendly label!) Whether it's an off the shoulder top or dress, I feel like the exposure of your shoulders is ultra feminine, sexy and still appropriate while still wearing some sleeves. It's a beautiful area to reveal...including your collar bone. Baring my shoulders is one of the reasons why I look forward to summer. It's a nice subtle way to show some skin for those hot days and add a bit of mystery.

Crossroads

Hello lovely darlings! I always tend to forget that the best places to be are the hidden gems in such a big city. Clearly those recent and constant rainy days got me thinking of more indoor places. Here in Kensington market, there’s just so much to be found. Countless patios, food, vintage goodies, amazing treasures and drool worthy vegan and non-vegan sweets! Don’t let the awkward location being in the middle of China Town fool you— this area has really cool vibes. I have to thank Mack Canelas for suggesting to come here, whom I also had the great pleasure of meeting and shooting via Instagram.

Check out more beautiful photos by Mack (one of my favourite shoots by far) and read more...
