Desert Heat

Forever 21 suede jacket / H&M t-shirt / Levi's jeans / Zara boots / Zara bag / vintage necklaces & rings

The Montreal botanical gardens are a magical place to be.. strolling around what seems like a tropical paradise is my idea of a great afternoon.. They've got me dreaming of Spanish homes and desert heat. One of the greenhouses was filled with opulent flowers and 2000 free flying butterflies and whenever I'm in a beautiful place, it's time to break out in a little dance ;)

It's about time to put away the jeans and slip on the sun dress, it's 28 degrees and sunny what a blessing!!

Also, it's my sister's birthday today, I've got a fun little surprise planned for her tonight, bonne fête Ève!! <3

Spring Layering

thrifted cardigan / thrifted wool dress / vintage fur scarf (also worn here) / däv "Finley" boots (here) / Zara bag / vintage Anne Klein sunglasses

I'm slowly trying to recover from the Easter long weekend; the dinners, the brunches, the drinks, all were so great, but now it's back to my morning yoga routine and healthy eating, not easy when I am dreaming of maple ham and sugar pie...

It's still a little chilly outside but beautiful and sunny! This is an outfit that I wore to work, a simple wool dress with a high neckline that a found at a thrift shop, no alterations needed, because it fits perfectly (that never happens)! I layered it with my fox fur scarf and a long fuzzy cardigan that I love to wear on any day, with a dress or ripped jeans. I acessorized with a few of my favourite rings and a necklace that I made a few years ago with a coin from my trip to Peru in 2007. I recently found it again and have been wearing it ever since, what a nice souvenir.. :)

With the new season arriving, I'm feeling so happy, accomplished and inspired. I'm walking around all day with a huge smile on my face, twirling around in my fringe... there's just something about Spring.

I just signed up for a jewelry making class starting at the end of the month, I love to work with my hands; building things, painting, sewing... jewelry is a new media for me and I'm very excited to see what I can create. I can't wait to show you some of my pieces!
