From my closet : Scalloped shirt

Style_BP_2 Style_BP_4

Woah. Things have been crazy lately and I’ve been over-busy. Now that I’m getting back into tracks, I want to enjoy the rest of the summer before it passes by. And nothing says summer like a colorful skirt with fancy heels! I’ve been into scallops from quite a while now and I couldn’t find the right scalloped shirt. That is until Dresslink sent me this pretty open-back one. Perfect from office hours to nights out! WIN!

From my closet: birdie shift dress

zaful_bird_1

Summer is slowly fading and the only confort I can find in it is trading my tanktops for autumn clothes. As much as I like summer dresses and late-night sunsets, I like the switch of style from one season to another. This style is perfect for the end of summer. When Zaful sent me this shift dress I was amazed by how me this pattern is. Watercolor, birds, colorful. It is a bit short but pairing it with my favorite rain boots makes it less apparent (I don’t like showing off too much of my legs at once I guess). Oh and have a look at my purse! It’s handmade with thick leather and bought directly from the artist in Fes, Morocco. Yes, that’s where I spend my vacations this summer! Hopefully, i’ll be posting some of my favorite shots soon!

From my closet / California dreamin’

LA_style_1

Last summer, my boyfriend and I travelled to sunny California to discover and snap photos of Los Angeles and San Francisco (I should finally be editing photos of SF anytime soon!). While we were in L.A. Pier-Luc took a few pictures of me for a potential style post that I obviously forgot about until now. Funny seeing myself with brown hair now that I’ve  been keeping them way lighter for a while! & how I miss the warmth of summer!

LA_style_3LA_style_4

I borrowed this sleeveless t-shirt from a friend while packing my suitcase without even realizing it was written California on it. ha! I paired it with my favorite boyfriend jeans for the comfiest walking-around-in-L.A. kind of days. Though, the sun was pretty hot & shiny out there and I did not bring anything to cover my head so I bought a cap on our first day, and I found this hat at H&M on our second day, in Santa Monica. I’ve been looking for a large sunhat for a while and I’m glad I brought one home! Now I can’t wait for next summer to wear it again (not the best match with a winter coat!).

My fall wishlist

So here we are AGAIN. That time of year we wave goodbye to sweet summer days and eating ice cream cones by the pool, and say hello to wool socks & melancholic playlists (am I the only one?). Sure, fall can make us feel a little heavy-hearted and it’s tempting to splurge on anything to make us feel a little better. & that’s why I’m writing down a wishlist, to stick to what I really need (or want the most).

fall_wishlist

Cute mittens
No matter how cold it is outside, it always feels better with cute mittens on. Don’t you agree?
.
Red dress coat
I love dress coats almost as much as I love dresses (which is a LOT). &I can totally see myself walking around in a red dress coat.
.
Notebooks
To me, this season comes with a little lack of motivation. But this doesn’t mean lack of ideas, not at all! That’s why I need cute notebooks to write all of them down for later!
.

Sweater weather
Fall screams comfy and warm outfits, and nothing compares to soft sweaters in comfy-business.
.
Gold watch
I don’t know why this item is STILL on my wishlist, but I really have to get myself a stunning gold watch. I just HAVE to.
.
Sweat pants
Indoor adventures and movie nights with my man is what fall is all about. &Since I plan on wearing sweat pants all the time, I’ll need a few extra pairs.

Wallet
Changing season means changes. Like changing wallet, which I really need.
.
Funny socks
I feel like funny sock could really cheer me up during this time of seasonal affective disorder. 
.
Tartan scarf
Isn’t tartan out? Said no one ever.
I need one of those scarves.
.
Wool headband
Bye bye cold ears. Hello stylish bed head.

What’s on YOUR wishlist?
See all the details from my montage here.

From my closet / custom t-shirt

foolish_1

Being considered an artist, the word custom is undoubtedly one of my favorite. Anything custom is good news, and means creating something new & unique. When HiCustom suggested I design my own t-shirt and have it printed, I could’t resist the urge to smile. YES. Of course I will! First, I thought: I want to make a very simple type-based design and a shirt that is versatile. Black and white. Boyish fit. Simple and yet the best combination to wear with almost anything, anywhere.

And then I thought: hey Roxane’s birthday is coming soon, why not design something meaningful that would remind us of each other and have it printed twice! Aren’t unique custom gifts the best? So that’s how the forever foolish design was born. Because between her and I, nothing else matters. Just friendship & laughter. Forever, even miles apart. (Oh please, don’t cry!) Oh, and I’d like to mention that her boyfriend proposed to her this week and I am SO SO SOOOOOO HAPPY for them and SOOOO excited for this upcoming wedding (meanwhile. you might see a few posts about weddings.. just sayin’). CONGRATS to my favorite couple in the world :)

foolish_2

For today’s style post, I decided to pair this my fresh-printed t-shirt with my favorite high-waisted worn-out jeans and my new forever-favorite pair of Vans shoes. I say forever because I am pretty positive I won’t ever find a shoe I am more fond of. My boyfriend actually bought them for me as a christmas present (after I declared I would trade anything in the world for them), but couldn’t wait until then to give them to me. Thank you dear!

Oh, and have you noticed my leopard-print nails? They’re nail strips by KISS. I love how they accessorize a simple casual outfit and I still can’t believe how long they last! You have to try this if you never had!

From my closet / embroidered kid dress

Outfit kid dress 1

Remember when I talked (here and here) about my rather obsessive crush for embroidery this summer? Well, the obsession hasn’t passed and I kept looking for the perfect dress. That is, until I saw this one in the kids department at Target. Perfect shade, perfect finition, I was blown away. Since Chloe thought me that wearing kids clothes is okay, I hadn’t had an ounce of hesitation and took it to the fitting rooms right away. This is the story of a girl who’s dreading the moment she won’t fit the kids size anymore.

Oh, and maybe I should mention that I ran into my boss and his daughter on my way to pay the dress, and he had just bought the exact same one for his little girl! ha!

Last week, I mentionned my new collaboration with Clearly Contacts as a Style Ambassador. This is the Vogue frames that I picked for my starter kit! They add so much personnality to an outfit, and I love styling them in all kinds of ways! I’m so glad I did not go on the safe side and went for bold. Casual glasses are great, but having statement glasses as a second pair is a must, believe me!

Also, you can read my Style Ambassador interview on their blog called The Look, right here!

Clearly Contacts Style Ambassador

MM_Clearly_1 MM_Clearly_2

Hey there! This is week is kind of a busy one for me, but I wanted to drop by and tell you that I am a proud new style ambassador for Clearly Contacts (you know, the online glasses retailer where I ordered those amazing Derek Cardigan frames?)! You might have seen this picture on my instagram, too! It’s my Style ambassador kit, that contained the charming Vogue frames that I’m wearing above (I was hesitant at first but I’m glad I chose a not-so-classic pair in the end)! I’m currently working on a few style post and projects to show you a few ways to wear statement glasses like these, so make sure you keep an eye out, I’ll share all of this soon !

Hope you guys are having a great week so far! xx

From my closet / glasses, plaid & bow

Montreal_1

Who said looking like a nerd was out?  If you read this DIY post on now sew bow-ties, you’re probably aware of my love for this charming accessory. When I bought this blue plaid shirt for less than 15$ at Simons, I knew I’d pair it with a white bow tie and glasses at least once, for a perfect nerdy look.

Now, let me tell you the story behind these new glasses. A few weeks ago, I saw a first-pair-free ad from Clearly Contacts and decided to look into it, while being skeptical about it. I looked through the selection of glasses on which the promotion applied and found these round birch frames from Derek Cardigan. I couldn’t go back then, I already loved them. I compared the measurements with my own eyeglasses to make sure they’d fit my narrow face, filled out my prescription on the website and entered the promotional code at checkout. Yes it was real. The frames and lens were free, and I only had to pay 16$ for shipping and handling. Can you believe it? Free glasses? No way! Still, I was a little skeptical about the quality (you don’t get much when it’s free these days!), but for as little as 16$, I thought it was worth the try! I was blown away when the packaged arrived a few days later. The lenses were perfectly adapted to my sight, and the shape of the frames fitted my face perfectly. The only thing I had to adjust were the branches. (With hot water and slight pressure, I did a pretty good job!). Now I am proudly wearing those statement eyewear and thanking god for the great deal!

Montreal_2Montreal_6Montreal_9

Remember the Hot Damn lipstick shade I was telling you about it this Ipsy favorites list? Well, this is the Hot Damn shade. It instantly adds a wow factor to every outfit I wear it with!

Montreal_4

What’s fun about this bow tie? It’s an hair clip that I turned into a collar accessory! Remember I wore it here too?

From my closet / embroidered lace top

outfit_7

Last summer, I decided to finally jump in and have this vintage twin-lens camera tattooed on my forearm. I had been dreaming about it long enough to make sure I wouldn’t have an ounce of regret, and I haven’t. I honestly thought getting used to it would have taken longer. Along with this recent addition to my body came a slight personal style adaptation. Heavy printed patterns like all over florals just don’t fit anymore, so I prefer going for more elegant flowy silky fabrics, embroidery textured pieces, soft patterns or classic plain t-shirts.

Lately, Sammy Dress kindly sent me this flattering embroidered lace blouse, and I couldn’t dream of a better piece to dress up a comfy office outfit. I paired it with the most comfortable jeggings in the whole world (if you guys think jeans are cozy, you probably never slipped in a pair of those), and my favorite cut-out flats from a Montreal-based vintage shop called 1861.

I’ve had an ongoing crush on that ring ever since I bought it with Roxane. It has such a joyful vibe, don’t you agree? (I wore it for that style post as well, remember?).

outfit_6

I am really pleased with my new Kate Spade frames as well. From the moment I tried them on, I just knew I couldn’t find any better for my everyday eyewear. Out of the three available colors, I picked tortoise because it’s a little lighter than massive black on my narrow face and they still match every thing I wear!
