H&M sweater / DIY thrifted leather shorts / vintage envelope clutch / H&M hat / Chanel flats
I met up with Dahye this week to grab some dinner and take quick photos, we both showed up wearing matching black and white outfits, so cute haha! These shorts are the result of cutting an old pair of ill fitting leather pants I found at a thrift store last year! They were probably worn by a badass biker chick back in the 90's and now they are one of my favorite pairs!
I have to say I'm more excited for fall than I anticipated! Dark colours, layering, buying new nail polish shades and wearing all over leather are some of my fall faves... along with the fact that I may be planning a little tropical vacation.. coming up soon ;)

H&M beaded T-shirt / Zara shorts / Zara Sandals / H&M purse & sunglasses
A few weeks ago I was approached by Marie Claire magazine to be featured in a streetstyle and beauty segment alongside other Montreal bloggers and fashion lovers! It was such an honour to find myself on a page of their magazine! You can read the article in the August issue on shelves now! :)

plain white tee / thrifted cut off jeans / Joe Fresh sandals / vintage purse / H&M hoop earrings / Anthropologie bracelet / skinny rings from H&M and handmade by Dahye
A simple white T-shirt and jean shorts are what I swore by all summer (switching to boyfriend jeans for the fall)! No look feels as effortless to me, and why not accessorize it with Spice Girls platforms and a funky watermelon bag! This purse is so fun, I inherited it from my stylish mother along with an olive and a strawberry... Amazing!
I walked around the plateau with my friend Dahye to catch a bit of sun and devour ice cream like 4 year olds! The area is full of these gigantic colourful murals which I love because lets be honest, they are great for taking photos! ;)

H&M shirt / slashed Levi's jeans / Zara boots / H&M bag / H&M shades
I had the chance to come in contact with this lovely lady named Dahye yesterday! She is a fellow fashion blogger who just moved to Montreal from the States! We got to know each other over some gourmet grilled cheeses at Olive et Gourmando and walked around the Old Port all afternoon! It was great to meet someone who shares my love of blogging and fashion, she is such a sweet down to earth girl, plus she looks like a Korean supermodel! I smell some great collaborations coming our way!
I wore a super basic outfit that I can't get enough of! Ripped black skinnies with a white button up and leather boots, it never gets old and is perfect for any casual day out and about. I also changed my hair color a little :) I went for a darker, more natural blonde, I think it will be great for the Fall! What do you think?

Zara blouse / H&M pants / Zara sandals / vintage Chanel bag
Earlier this week, I met up with my sister after work to grab a bite at Brasserie T! I ate the most amazing shrimp roll with a tall beer, so refreshing, it doesn't get any better than this! We walked around Place des Arts and were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of sun in between showers to take a few photos in this gorgeous park.
I decided to pair these tropical print trousers with a simple flowy white blouse and a minimum of accessories because they're quite busy as it is. I'm totally in love with these pants but completely forgot about them all season and only wore them once! I gotta make the most of my summer closet while I still can ;)
H&M bag / Zara ankle boots
I had such a nice day off today, slept in until noon like a lazy bum and ate chocolate chip pancakes! Doing sweet nothing feels so good sometimes don't you think? ♥
Later on I met up with my good friend Melina for some shopping and dinner at Big in Japan; had the most dreamy bowl of ramen noodle salad with BBQ pork and pickled vegetables. I also got some new fall accessories that I cannot wait to wear! I'll be pairing these booties with cutoff jean shorts for what's left of the summer and with some boyfriend jeans as soon as the weather gets chilly!
Now I'm ready to crawl into bed again haha.. good night xx

Zara sequin jacket / Zara top / H&M shorts / Zara sandals / vintage envelope clutch / H&M rings
I wore this look this weekend to a late night dinner and drinks at l'Orignal restaurant in the Old Port. The apartment life has been costing me and unfortunately I've had to tone down my shopping addiction (tears). Luckily, I'm blessed to have a roommate with great taste who wears the same size as me, so I decided to shop her closet and borrow this awesome sparkly jacket! Life is good ;)
You can catch a sneak peek of my place in these photos, for now the walls are quite bare, were in desperate need of art! I will post more once we have finished decorating!
