Spring is on my mind...

Hello Darlings

As I am sitting here, trying to study for my French midterm and finish my architecture analysis, the sunlight is flooding my room. I can’t believe that spring is just around the corner, lectures are almost done, exams are a month away, Toronto Fashion Week is in a few weeks, and my closet needs a complete overhaul. So much to do, it is overwhelming but exciting at the same time.

Speaking of closets, I’ve received quite a few requests for a vlog /closet video and although intimidated by the idea, I’ve decided to give it a try. When I have a spare minute, I will create a video of my closet and share with you some of my favorite spring items. So that is coming up in a little bit! I am pretty shy in person and this is  a huge step for me.. *blush blush*

Here I am  thinking spring, spring, spring… but it was snowing, snowing, snowing just a couple of days ago. Although I am really excited for spring, I am so not ready for it! I haven’t even had time to find my spring absolutely-can’t-live-without-must-have BALLERINAS and I usually buy them in February. For me spring and summer is all about delicate and beautiful flats. I don’t even know what I need to buy! The key here is NEED and not WANT! No plan = No shopping. I do have some ideas, but the selection in stores is not so satisfying. I  feel like everything looks the same and is just not worth the money!!!  I have not forgotten about my promise and my mission, it is just taking a little longer. Who could have thought that changing my shopping philosophy can be so difficult? :P

In the meantime, I want to share with you an outfit from this weekend.

Simple and soooo comfortable! Ooh…and I just re-discovered this pair of Juicy boots in my closet. It’s amazing how exciting it can be to shop in your own closet : P You should give it a try!!!! Every season, I pack away half of my closet... and right now, I am in the process of unpacking my spring/summer closet. So exciting!

I am wearing: Wilfred Free top ( from Aritzia); J Brand skinnies ( from Winners); Club Monaco cashmere scarf and gloves ( from Club Monaco); Sonia Rykiel pour H&M beret (from H&M); Mackage Leane Leather Jacket ( from ssense.com); Juicy Couture Boots ( from Winners); Gustto Cokera Purse ( from revolveclothing.com);  Michael Kors Watch ( a gift from Andrew).

Between school, snowstorms, and studying... Andrew and I did have a chance to visit our favorite French patisserie, Nadege!!! You MUST check it out if you live in Toronto!!! The place, the macaroons, and the French…. are oh-so-chic, how can one resist the temptation to wear a beret. When given an opportunity to dress with “ je ne c'est quoi”, take it!! I am just joking, but it is always fun to dress the part!!!

Now, my question to you darlings…

What is/are  your spring  must-have item(s)????

Well, I must run… school is slowly getting the best of me! Just a little bit longer and then it is summer time!!!

Wishing Everyone a Beautiful Day!!!

With Love...
