I knew that I would fall in love with you at first sight. You were beautiful from every corner and the second we drove into the first arrondissement I was in awe. I pressed my face up against the glass in the taxi admiring the buildings and the people, smiled to myself and thought "this is finally happening".
Now that we're headed into summer and warmer weather, I'm returning to one of my favourite trends: head-to-toe white. It's tricky to wear due to it's light colour and challenge to keep clean, but it's such a foolproof way to look chic, polished and confident.
I've always been a lover of all things Chloé and this new nomade fragrance is the true expression of what it means to be a Chloé girl. With woodsy and feminine, floral notes, it has easily captured my heart. The scent is unique, soft and sweet. It brings a sense of freedom and confidence and makes me want to literally run around in a field of flowers.
Witnessed the first sign of Spring over the weekend with temperatures above zero degrees celsius and ample sunlight. The weather called for a light wool coat, a pair of perfectly cropped denim and slides. I welcomed in these new jeans from GRLFRND denim not too long ago and they have become my favourite. This 'Helena' style is a popular one and loved by many, but I didn't get to try it until very recently. The raw and uneven cut hem is unique, making them the ideal go-to pair for casual weekend runs or even dressier occasions.
It’s the beginning of a new month, which is an opportunity to start anew. I’ve been inconsistent with my blog posts recently, not because I don’t want to post but because there’s nothing too exciting to share. So this time around, I figured I would do something different and share five interesting facts about myself that you may not know
After a long self-debate on whether or not it was worth investing in a pantsuit, I finally did it. Not because it's super trendy at the moment, but because it doesn't hurt to own one. There is a sense of confidence that comes out when I'm wearing a suit. When it came down to picking one, the options were endless but I undoubtedly went with an option that was the most classic.
Happy 2018! There's something so special about this year and maybe it's because the number '8' is in it. If you're Chinese, you'll know that this number is considered lucky because it sounds like the word 'prosperity' and 'wealth'. Terrance and I purchased our home on the 18th floor (intentional) and I will be turning 28 at the end of the year. Oh, and I just so happen to be writing this post on the 18th (unintentional).
As with every holiday season, my go-to ensemble always includes a relaxed-fitting sweater. Not only for reasons of warmth, but also so I can eat more. This Massimo Dutti sweater has been a favourite of mine and the low-turtleneck and bell sleeves makes it unique.
When it comes to gifting, I truly believe that giving the gift of a new scent is the most thoughtful. It's your chance at picking up a fragrance that reflects your loved one and their personality, whether it be feminine, sweet, bold or fun.
We don't have much of a choice but to embrace the cold weather so we may as well see the fall weather as a glass half full. The best part about the fall season is shopping for the quinteseential pieces that you can wear and layer on when the temperature drops.
I've been on the search for the classic trench coat for quite some time now and finally stumbled upon the one from Massimo Dutti. My ideal trench coat is one that is a bit more heavy-duty as opposed to lightweight so that it can withstand Canadian weather, would be camel-toned, and have detailed shoulders and sleeves. This one checked all of the boxes.
