Call It Spring, Call It Summer

What do you call a weather that’s warm enough for summer sandals but still chilly to make you want to grab a light jacket as you leave? It’s called spring. It’s called heaven music. So there literally couldn’t have been a better time for this Call It Spring collab as I think this outfit just raced to the top of my all time favorite outfits list. I chose Qerinna without hesitation because a playfully patterned strappy sandal is the easiest pair in a closet to dress up and down, which is exactly what I need being the tinselly tomboy I am. .

Sliding Into Summer

All winter long I waited to wear this dress, but the outfit I had in mind included a coat and a pair of boots. See Canadian winter deaden your dreams so much that you can’t even fantasize about a proper spring look, but then one day it becomes so hot that you have no other option but to wrap that coat around your waist and trade your chunky, ugly boots for the loveliest of slides.  Yes, your pale legs may still blind people but that’s how you slowly slide into summer; no shame no game. .

My Own Chella

Two of the things that bum me out; the rest of the world festivalling with itsy bitsy clothes and sandals when I can’t even walk around sockless at home and Urban Outfitters website not working in Quebec. Well when I heard this week that one of the aforementioned two problems is really close to a fix, I figured, why not fix the other one myself? Yes, Urban Outfitters’ Canadian website is, finally, about to go live ladies and gentlemen. No more trying to access the website with mobile networks, no more ordering stuff to your home when you are on vacation somewhere else (please tell me you all do this, that I’m not a final stage shopaholic). I don’t know when it will happen but I know it’s soon. And to celebrate this, I packed my favorite Urban Outfitters dress & hat  and spent some quality photo shooting time at the most beautiful Breather space (I’m seriously considering renting this place all day everyday and turn it into an office, anyone interested in splitting the …

How It Ended

I chose this photo above willingly as it describes the title more than a thousand words could; this was how winter ended in Montreal – me shivering but determined to not give in for one last time. We shot this outfit on the last cold day, which can be hard to distinguish in other climates but here, the line is sharp as a knife. There literally wasn’t more than 3 days between a snow storm and a barbeque Sunday. Downside? You go from winter coats to cardigans, skipping light coats and jackets all together. Upside? No one cares about that, it’s finally spring god damn it. PS: I am selling the coat above at Depop, look for me! . Ivory wool coat Vintage Ralph Lauren (very similar here & here) .

Urban Aproning

I’m so grateful for the fashion genius who created the daily apron, the pant with its very own skirt, because now I get to tell people that I’m proudly wearing my apron from time to time. No one needs to know where I wear it to or for what, right? And for future reference (because every year we have the same discussion as to when did spring start that year in Montreal), it started this weekend. Oh yes. PS: Hope you liked the new TFM! If not, you can always keep on following it in the blog format, which is the same as the old layout. . Black apron pants Front Row Shop (very similar here & here) .
