Fashion { Reality Check }

I love reading fashion blogs because of the pictures where I can get outfit inspiration. But I was unsure about starting my own blog because I felt intimidated since my outfits aren’t as ‘elaborate’ all the time.

Then I realized that there are important lessons to be learned from street style, and that fashion is very personal. Even though I would like to wear heels every day, my lifestyle (and the weather in Montreal) doesn’t allow for that. Regardless of that, I can still look put-together and feel good.

I hope that I can inspire every girl (and boy!) to look their best, no matter what, and not get intimidated by trends or what others choose to wear. Fashion is about finding our own individual style identity that suit our lifestyle, budget, and personality, rather than following someone else’s idea of a good outfit!

I spent that morning getting work done at a bakery, so I wore a comfortable but put-together outfit, appropriate for the Montreal weather, which is still cold this time of year (that day, it was -10˚C /14˚F). .

How about you? What are some of your every day outfit? What would like to see in a lifestyle blog that’s different?

Outfit { Blue & Floral }

After complaining that I don’t have a photographer to take outfit pictures, the world swiftly sent my sister to me! She surprised me for my 25th birthday and flew all the way from Calgary to spend two weeks with us. There are no words to explain how nice it’s been having her home.

Not only have we been having fun, but we have also had the chance to do a few photoshoots! Maybe I can convince her to move back to Montreal if I gave her a full-time job as my photographer? I wish…

Here’s a simple fall outfit – comfy pants from Mexx with floral details on the side that I fell in love with, a cotton top from Smart Set that’s so easy to throw on and is comfortable for long days of running errands, and a leopard belt, of course, to add a fun touch to the outfit. I’m also wearing my favorite wedge sneakers that I snatched up at Winners last year and still love because they are so comfy and combine two of my favorite colors!
