Sweater Weather

Is what it was supposed to be, just sweater weather coming after summer heat, but Montreal being Montreal jumped directly to sweater over t-shirt under a coat weather. Luckily, after freezing our asses off for a couple of days, it signaled a proper fall yesterday so I decided to wear the outfit I had in mind for a long time, the outfit that required the right amount of breeze and sun. .

Two In One

The king of any wardrobe; besides the LBD, white tee, white shirt, white cami and any denim, is the piece that 1) stands the test of time 2) is versatile and can be worn in more than one way. I’m lucky enough to have found such a piece years ago, this Vintage Ralph Lauren silk skirt doubles as a perfectly comfortable strapless dress when the season can’t handle maxi skirts anymore. .

Trail Blazer

One of the few perks of not being a native English speaker is the fun you have with phrases you hear the first time in your life and when you simply can’t guess the meaning because it means a whole other thing than the individual words forming that phrase. When I first heard the team name Portland Trail Blazers years ago I instantly liked them, not because of any particular player or the team aura but simply because they have the word “blazer” in their name. I think a blazer is strong enough a word to carry a whole team name, even without the “trail” first, and it’s strong enough a garment to be worn alone and make the outfit. .

Blue Is The Lightest Color

It’s a fact that blue is not my favorite color in the world. Actually I always fancy people rocking crazy shades of blue but it’s too much of a “color” for me, that’s why I can only make it work in a baby blue tone and if – and only if – I wear it with white. When I get it right though it gives me the feeling of luxury and sporty at the same time; turning business into business casual, fancy into street, tacky & trendy into stylish. .

Ring My Bell

I never would have thought of getting a bell sleeve top, not in a million years, had a brand called Ellery not entered our lives changing the perception of clean cut, minimal dressing. Thanks to Kym, I now have a variety in my wardrobe I never thought I would. Of course I couldn’t walk around in bell bottom pants or huge A line skirts like an Aussi fashionista so I wore a casual pair of khakis and flat sandals like a true European tourist. .
