Shades of Grey while I wait for Spring!

(Zara jacket, QI sweater, Vero moda leather skirt, Killah shoes, Bag-gift from Italy)
Hope you are all having a fabulous Monday! I had a very uneventful weekend, where I basically just did stayed in and did homework. YUK! But I did find some time to take some pics and I tried some new faces.  The first is "Oh I am so happy with the wind in my hair"  and the second is " I am a really deep person and never smile".  Both are so not me!!!  But really it's just that the lack of time doesn't allow me to edit the pics! But with this transitory weather I decided to show you guys some very neutral tones with splashes of colors in the purse, necklace and nails. Hope you like!

All in one: Work and Play

(Zara blazer, AA tshirt, Vinatge bag & sunnies, F21 necklace & Coach bangles)

So the look is a bit 80's with the sunglasses and boxer blazer, but I was going for something edgier.  The sunglasses and bag are actually my mom's from the 80's-90's era.  I love going through her closet and finding these little gems I can re wear  and which are trendy today.  I wore the outfit for brunch on Sunday at a place called Lawrence which seems to be where all the artsy people in Montreal hang out!!  I have also worn this to work (minus the sunglasses) and therefore find the outfit has some double duty abilities.  BTW have you noticed my love of orange lately?

Have a great hump day!!

How to tie a scarf, 3 different ways

#1:  As a Turban

#2 : As a belt

( Zara jacket, pants and shoes, Maison Scotch shirt, LV pouch and vintage scarf)

#3 : As a scarf

As promised I wanted to show you three different ways to tie a scarf. In the first pic I wanted to show you  a turban which is so in this season.  The second is as a belt and can be used to cinch in a blouse or a plain dress.  The last and most conventional way is as a scarf which is great if you want to add a burst of color to an outfit.  Check out J'aime mon carre a site designed by Hermes to show people how to use their silk scarf.  Love it!

Which is your favorite?

My new bright purchases for spring

(Zara skirt from Spring 11)
(Vintage scarf ready to be tied in different ways)

(View of the storm outside my window!  How pretty right?)

I know it's no excuse but the snowstorms have been preventing me from showing you guys my new bright purchases. I have been in love with orange lately and really drawn to all bright colors. I guess all the bloggers are (since the pics are so much better with bright colors) but we Canadians and East Coasters need to wait a while to actually done some of this stuff.  I can't wait to wear this skirt with both a white blouse or cobalt blue tank. Also will soon show you guys how I plan on using my new scarf in very different ways (so stay tuned!). Please sunshine come and stay awhile, cause I just can't deal with any more snow!!

Moda Operandi

Lauren Santo Domingo and Auslaug Magnusdosttir

So I'm in!!! I just received an e-mail confirming my private access to Moda Operandi where you can shop looks from the biggest players in fashion, like Matthew Williamson, Proenza Schouler and more even before it hits the stores! This site was created by Lauren Santo Domingo and Auslaug Magnusdosttir who are a great power couple and inspiring working gals.  Check out Auslaug's personal collection on The Coveteur (love this site).

But really who am I kidding, I won't be able to purchase this stuff, but love browsing their magazine.  It is really pretty and enjoy reading it.

Hurry, if you want to become a member because there will be a waiting list.

Blush Tones

Blush tones

I am really craving these beautiful feminine items that are both fun and very feminine. These items are fabulous together or paired with some other basics. Like a plain tee over that great silk skirt or just some boyfriend jeans paired with that great nude shirt from Topshop. The possibilities are endless with these blush tones.

To hat or not to hat?

(Mackage coat, Rudsak hat, BCBG top, Joe's jeans shorts, Michael Kors boots, LV bag)

So the snow hit us again and instead of complaining, I embraced it.  It was pretty mild out and so we decided to take some outdoor pics near my home.  The weekend basically consisted of shopping followed by dinner with friends, and a very chill Sunday to compensate for the excitement over the weekend.  Our best friends have announced baby news!  So exciting!!  Will it be pretty dresses or cargo pants for the little one?

BTW what do you think of my Russian fur hat?

Looks I need for right now

(Images via Vanessa Jackman)

I have been in a style funk these past couple of days and feel that this happens every March.  I am sick of my winter wardrobe and cannot wait to wear lighter fabrics bear some skin and wear sandals.  Spring just needs to come sooner and then everything would be perfect.  So while waiting for spring to arrive here are some outfits I hope to replicate once we get warmer weather.

The Classic White Shirt

(BCBG shirt, Mimi and Coco cardigan, Mango pants, Nine West shoes, BR ring and cuff)

A little white shirt is something everyone needs. Actually Jenna Lyons spoke at a conference during NYFW and said that it was one of her essentials along with a great pair of shoes, blazer and watch. She actually loves her shirts in all shapes and sizes. I totally agree and wanted to show you one of my favorite white shirts with a bow detail.

 What does your favorite white shirt look like?
