It is finally Friday, the sun is a shinning and I feel like all the stress from this week is gone now. I took these pictures when I got home from jury selection, I am happy to say I was exempted, so happy cause it would have started in September for 12 to 18 months! yikes!

This dress I have worn before on the blog, it is a big fave of mine, I shortened the hem and added an "H" pin to make it more my style. My favorite part of this outfit is the vintage green fishnet tights, I thrifted them a while back they were brand new in the package. I was not thinking when I applied my green eye shadow to match which was inspired by the movie "Moonrise Kingdom".

Happy Friday everyone!

xo!

Today is kind of a gloomy day, I was lucky enough to be selected twice for jury selection, hopefully they will see that I am a very anxious person when it comes to dealing with traumatic situations. First time they sent me the dreaded letter I was a full time student, but no longer I am. Time to be an adult all of a sudden, usually I do not mind but I am not a huge fan of waiting in a government building for a day long waiting till they call my number. I am going there armed with my Loretta Lynn biography and some tunes.

The funniest part of this whole situation is that next week I go back to the court house to get hitched, my life is so weird sometimes. I took these pictures very quickly yesterday afternoon right before the rain, this is one of my simple looks, I thrifted this plaid blouse last week and fell in love with the ruffles and the peter pan collar, I paired it with my favorite jeans and some vintage accents.

Day Tripping : Sault-au-Récollet and île de la Visitation

Day trip in the city

Sault-au-Récollet is a little spot near the edge of the Montreal island, I found out about this little area back in the Winter when I shot this outfit post. Since then Stéphane rode his bike past this lovely place a few times and told me about it, so Sunday we went on a mini day trip on our bikes.

Day trip in the city

On the way there on the boulevard Gouin where the cycle path leads you there are cute little old houses, some from the 20s inspired by the "Pensylvania look" and some really old homes that date back 300 years. I was fascinated right away with this magical little time capsule that is only a bike ride away from were I live. We visited a little house that was used for making cider from 1806 to 1841 and then became a home for 1848 to 1978. They had a few interesting artifacts to look at and gave us a little map with information on the area and the history.

My favorite spot was this one, it looks like a beach from afar but is really rocky. The view was amazing we got to hang out with some ducks and seagulls and snap a few pictures.

This is "La maison du pressoir" the cider making house, I really liked the community garden right next to it but it was not open to the public.

My Look : Think Pink!

017

I am loving this week, the weather is sticky and very warm, for the past few days it has been around 40 degrees Celsius in Montreal. I've been wearing Summer frocks and sandals, I really like not thinking too much about what I plan on wearing on really hot days like these. I was very happy last week when Sugarlips sent me this lovely dress in the mail. I really like the fit and the colors. On my way to the post office I found this rose bush in a random alleyway and came back to shoot this outfit post, I really like the vintage feel I got from the intense sunlight and the pink from the roses.

What to pack for a California Honeymoon

California trip packing


As most of you know from what I said in my last post I am preparing for my wedding and well I got to thinking about what I would pack in my suit case for our California honeymoon adventures. I found all these lovely items I would pack if I had a magical no limit credit card and really fast shipping to Canada. Here are a couple of sets I came up with, some really comfy ideas, like this light denim sailor inspired romper and T strap leather sandals. I am really into simple looks for the Summer with key pieces that make me feel comfortable and chic. I added a few of my favorite beauty products including sunscreen ;)  If you like any of these items just click on any of the links bellow and it will magically take you there.

I really like this silk tank it has little flowers on it and it has a texture to the fabric so it jazzes up the simple draw-cord chambray shorts, paired with gold earrings and red comfy wedges to keep your feet cool and comfy for those long walks on the beach :)


TEARDROP EARRINGS - WEAVE TOTE - WHITE SILK TANK - CHAMBRAY SHORTS - SHADES - CLINIQUE SPF 30 SUNSCREEN - SHELLY'S DAY TRIPPER SHOES

I am in love with this yellow bikini, the placement of the ruffles is so cute and faltering, I would wear the shorts with it since they are high waisted so I would still feel comfy wearing it out in public, the raffia sandals makes the whole look chic and simple cool. I always wash my face with facial spray water, I don't like putting tap water on my face it dries it up, I use Vichy 3 in 1 and wipe it off with a cloth before bed, my skin feels refreshed and not dry. I have really sensitive skin and this method is so easy peasy.

Lastly, I am so in love with this two piece play suit, the bow, the cut, the shorts have pockets, perfect! I just recently discovered Murad products on my first trip to Shephora, I had a little problem with body acne and after using this body wash for only a week my little problem was cleared and left my skin feeling soft and fresh, really a little miracle in a tube. Asides from the body wash ;) how cute are these ice cream cone shorts? I think I may have to go ahead and order these they are to cute for words. I paired this look with a simple scallop leather cross body purse and cream leather sandals, the round shades give this look a cute Lolita flair.

My Style : 60s Playsuit

Summering

The heat has hit the pavement here in Montreal, time to take out the fun stuff from my closet. I bought myself this 60s play suit on etsy the day of my birthday as a gift to myself, I got it in the mail
a few weeks later and had totally forgot about it, I love that when it happens. Stéphane took these pictures for me, he really captures my vision so well. I love Summer pics the best.

We are getting ready to tie the knot very soon, almost everything is done now, I am getting pretty excited, everyone from both of our families has been such a huge help in bringing our wedding together. I am very thankful to all of them for being there for us. I can't wait to share the pictures, our photographer is pretty amazing, I took a walk with her in Old Montreal last week, this place is magical for wedding pics. I am also pretty excited for our honeymoon to California, it is a bit scary to venture out this far but I am sure it will be a magical affair ;)
