Not-So-Girly Pearls

The perfect pair of statement denim for when you’re feeling a little bit *extra* on a Saturday, but you still want the comfort of your mom jeans. On weekends, I like to wear them as I’ve styled them here, but for a work event, I’ll pair them with a black turtleneck, quilted clutch and sky-high stilettos for a look that is polished with an editorial touch.

How I Style A Wrap Dress for Summer

There's nothing I love more than an easy summer dress. This vividly-hued one by DVF feels lighter than air, and I can't help but feel like I'm getting away with wearing my robe outside of my bedroom each time I put it on - it's that comfortable. With a dress that has a price point like this one (neither inexpensive nor entirely bank-breaking), the Cost Per Wear formula definitely comes into play, and I love that this can be worn with flat sandals and a bucket bag while traipsing about a new city or brunching with friends, or else dressed up with a clutch and statement heels (preferably of the tasseled variety) for one of the innumerous  summer weddings we all seem to have on our social calendars this time of year.

All Black Weekend Wear

Anna Wintour may be against head-to-toe black, but on some occasions, it just feels right. I loved these unique culottes from Club Monaco, but needed to style them with a sky high heels. While I’d love to be one of those girls who can pull off wide cropped pants paired with Stan Smiths, it’s just about the least flattering silhouette for my frame. I also swapped my black bucket bag for a woven clutch just before leaving the house, which added a bit of texture to the otherwise monochrome ensemble, making the whole look feel slightly less severe.

Summer Ruffles

Is there anything better than summertime style? After months of layering all winter long, all I want to wear right now is pretty dresses - the flouncier the better - and colourful, easy slides. I have a pretty busy few months ahead, so I'm savouring every moment of downtime I get with a glass of rosé and a good book. Right now, I'm finishing up Katie Kitamura's A Separation and am eager to find my next summer read - please send any and all recommendations my way!

Flower Market Mornings

My typical weekend morning starts with a stop by my local coffee shop, and then onwards to Whole Foods (which is dangerously close to my home) to pick up breakfast and any groceries for the week ahead. On the way home, I always stop by one of the multiple floral shops lining the street near my house to pick up fresh blooms. It's definitely a bit of an extravagance, but I adore playing with new colour combinations and discovering new flowers, picking whatever is freshest and in season. Since I recently joined Equinox Yorkville, I think my weekend routine will get shaken up a bit (hello-oo barre and tabata classes), but I can't see myself giving up this weekly indulgence any time soon.
