Easter Yellow


Happy Easter All! So far, this long weekend has been so lovely and so needed. I'll be spending the rest of it enjoying the Spring-ish weather (finally! Toronto had summer weather on Monday and a snowstorm on Tuesday, go figure), going to the Raptors' first playoff game (go Raps!), celebrating my dear dad's birthday (HBD Dad!), and taking my boyfriend to his first ever Easter service (aw!).
I started my spring shopping early this year, even though winter seemed to be hanging around endlessly. This dress was actually the first thing I bought. I love the mustard yellow colour and the bell/swing shape. It just makes me feel like Spring when I wear it. What is your favourite piece you've bought for Spring so far?
Wearing: Club Monaco hat (very similar hat here), Zara dress (similar here, here and here), Sam Edelman boots. x E

Leopard Print Coat


Leopard Print Coat

In this outfit, I'm wearing one thing I haven't worn in months (my beloved Strategia boots) and two things I haven't worn in years (my leopard print coat and these Chanel-eque sunnies). Longtime readers of my blog will remember this coat (there was a period where I wore it far too much), and any fan of Mary Kate's famous sunglasses moment at the Chanel Show in 2008 will recognize these shades. I found them sitting in the back of my closet during the start of my spring cleaning and decided to take them out for a one-day-only spin.
Have any of you started your closet spring cleaning yet? I'm just at the beginning stages, and I'm using this article on Goop to lead the way. I'd love to know any of your closet editing tips as well! Also, if you're interested, I'm selling some lovely things I've recently outgrown on eBay (lots more being listed tonight), so take a look at my eBay store here!

Wearing: Vintage coat (very similar leopard coat here), Topshop tee, Rag & Bone jeans, Strategia boots (similar oxblood pairs here and here), and Badgley Mischka hat (similar here).

Winter Blues


Winter Blues

Yes.. this coat AGAIN! And yes, MORE snow! Can someone explain to me how Toronto got hit with a massive snowstorm in mid March? I am fed up with winter. Seriously.
The only thing getting me through this last stretch of frigid temperatures is dreaming of and planning for upcoming vacations - Mexico, Chicago and Spain so far... However, in the meantime I guess I'll sit here wearing two sweaters and crying into my Nespresso.

Wearing: Nili Lotan coat (similar styles from Topshop here and here), Zara sweater, Rag and Bone jeans, Nine West boots (similar here), Dooney & Bourke purse, Aldo Sunglasses. x E

Camo Coat


Camo Coat

As much as I've been loving scrolling through all the latest streetstyle photos from Milan and Paris fashion weeks, I can't say I've been feeling very inspired. While I love all the looks featuring bare legs, heels and light jackets, I simply can't relate when it is -20 degrees Celsius out my window. It's now that point in the Canadian winter where going outside without a parka and Sorels is not only impractical, it's impossible (and any blogger who tells you differently is LYING... or at least a lot braver than I!)
These photos were taken on yet another coffee run (in front of my neighbour's house, who apparently has no interest in taking down his Christmas decorations, despite it now being March). Or, more precisely, a tea latte run. Now that David's Tea has opened in my area, I've been slightly more inclined to brave the cold to walk and get my tea fix. Thank goodness Santa put so many David's Tea gift cards in my stocking this Christmas, or my wallet would be suffering. My favourite right now? Red Velvet Cake.

LouLou Magazine - March 2014


LouLou Magazine - March 2014

Earlier this year, I was asked to do a photoshoot with LouLou Magazine. The shoot featured me alongside other Canadian social media mavens, with each of us modelling a key piece for spring. The experience was something from a dream - racks and racks of amazing clothing, accessories and shoes, and we could choose whatever pieces we wanted to wear. The makeup by Vittorio and Bree was possibly my favourite from a photoshoot ever - seriously, I wish my brows could look this bold all the time. You'll have to forgive the fuzzy nature of the behind-the-scenes photos, they were all taken with my phone.
LouLou Magazine is published in English and in French and is out on newsstands today!
