Sunrise and Layovers in Paris

I had a bit of time during my layover in Charles de Gaulle (Parisian airport). Though I’ve been here many times, I don’t think I ever liked it as much as this time. The sunrise, paired with the window wall illuminated the waiting area, and let me tell you, it got hot. I took off my jacket and cardigan, and decided to walk around, wearing a black tank top, leggings, and Clark’s. In Canada, wearing leggings and a tank top is a norm, but it was interesting to see the looks I was getting from local Parisians. As I learned from my visit last year, ladies like to cover their hips, especially if they’re wearing leggings.

Paris definitely deserves the title as one of the fashion capitals, because all the ladies are able to compliment their body types, cover their bums, and do it stylishly.

Long shirts and cardigans did the trick, while also colour blocking and layering. Well done my Parisian ladies, well done indeed.

Hello my beautiful readers!

It was wonderful to wake up this morning and have 20 degrees Celsius at 8am after all of the rain that has been flooding Toronto. In all honesty, I never believed Toronto would, or even could, flood….Surprise, surprise. 

So how to celebrate this warm weather? I’m whipping out my, as I call it, minimalistic clothing – High waisted shorts (from Garage – bogo event, I am okay with that) and a t-shirt from my local Black Market that went under a little “DIY operation”.

I love the Black Market for reasons such as the shirt, with the infamous Phil Spector on it, was $1.99. Read that sentence again, I’m not joking. 

For this shirt specifically, I cut it as a crop with a tie at the bottom. It’s a perfect length with these retro high waisted shorts! The sunglasses are also from Black Market, where you can find other great styles, all for $10!

For those with a background on Phil Spector, perhaps the title of this post sparks a little “punny” in you, but go out and dress to kill with the wonderful weather out right now!

As a side note > My giveaway is still going so check it out for this Dylan bracelet from Foxy Originals > https://motherniche.wordpress.com/2013/07/08/foxy-originals-giveaway/

Although they were last season’s it” colours, black and white are still springing right through summer.

I found this versatile mid length skirt in Simons during my trip to Quebec City in late winter. Definitely one of my favourites – you can wear it on your hips as a tight maxi, at your waist as a mid-length, or even as a dress depending on how adventurous you are feeling.

If you’re someone who likes to wear bandeaus, look out for the new bralettes. Essentially the same as a bandeau, but with an extension of lace at the bottom. I’d have to say it’s my favourite clothing item of the summer.

Foxy Originals

I discovered a local jewelry company called Foxy Originals. Their wide selection in jewelry is a great touch to any outfit. Their unique and intricate designs make their pieces stand out and are complimentary to any look and person!
