Happy Monday! Hope you all had a restful and beautiful weekend! Happy to finally be able to bring out some lighter shades of trousers now that the weather is warmer and that it’s more “appropriate” to do so. I got these rad pale denim skinny moto trousers during my last visit to LA. I’m so obsessed with the Anine Bing jeans I had bought last summer that I had to get new pairs and this one seemed perfect for the spring and summer. I’ve never owned too many pairs of light denim but these were just too cool to pass up. Plus, they look awesome with a lot of bright colors!
A little music inspiration to end your day – HAIM! In case you missed their set at Coachella this weekend, you can watch it in full HD –> here.
Today, one of my favorite new bands called Language Arts released a brand new record. The band’s leader Kristen reminds me a lot of Lisa Loeb with her glasses and her style of singing. You can stream Wonderkind in full here. Listening to the record on repeat helped me get through the day (feeling ill again, boo!), particularly this song – “Oh Tangible World”. Here’s a cute acoustic version:
Happy I’m able to take my Pamela Love boots back out. As one of my friends Nicolenoticed the other day, ankle boots seem to be all the rage now that the weather is warming up. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a HUGE fan of ankle boots. I think they’re totally worth investing in because they go with just about anything: skinnies, dresses, skirts, shorts, etc. You can also find a good pair of ankle boots for under $200. One of my favorite maker of ankle boots is a brand from NYC called Modern Vice. They’ve got just about every style and color imaginable and are handmade right in Manhattan. Though a bit more pricey, they’re definitely worth the money. During my last trip to NYC I was able to order two new pairs, which I can’t wait to show you! Do you have a favorite pair of ankle boots?
This weekend I watched an amazing documentary on Netflix (between some House of Cards episodes!!) called “Spinning Plates“, which profiles three different restaurants in the US that are each so unique and different but who all get struck by tragedy. The doc reveals how meaningful food can be and how powerful it can be to bring people together. The documentary film has won several awards already and I can see why. A truly touching story, worth watching!
Really excited to be going back to LA tomorrow! I can’t believe it’s already been several months since my last trip. It’s crazy how time flies! My upcoming trip can be summarized by the following words: Friends x Surfing x Food x Tattoos x Fashion. Wearing my American Eagle sweater from Topshop to celebrate today. Getting ready to go!!
After many months of waiting, today, Disiz finally released his brand new music video that my man @offnerdirected! If you don’t know who Disiz is, well he’s one of the biggest rappers in France. Not only does he have great beats but he also has super clever and intelligent rhymes. The video was shot in Spain and Canada in the spring of last year. Super excited that it’s finally out! Watch “Porté Disparu” here!
Today’s outfit – Some white lace x one of my favorite tops! Rawr!!
Biko Jewellery just launched her brand new collection yesterday called BEACHCOMBER! It’s super dreamy and is making me so excited for summer! Check out her little promo video below! In celebration, I’m wearing some of my Biko favs!
Stoked on my funky new Uranium necklace. Since I can’t afford a pair of real leather pants (like these dreamy ones for example – WANT) at the moment, I’m sticking with the faux leather slacks. I got these last year at H&M for $40 and they’re one of my best purchases ever!
T – 14 days before my next adventure – France!!! Ah can’t wait! Still have 4 shows to shoot before I leave including our holiday special.
It’s been really cold in Toronto these past few stays so I’ve been staying sane by sipping lot’s of tea and also watching some surf flicks. Last night I watched the doc featuring Kelly Slater: The Ultimate Wave – Teahupoo. The film is really well shot and is not only beautiful to watch but also informational. After watching it, all I wanted to do was pack my bags and leave for Tahiti stat! Check out the trailer below:
Today’s outfit was centered around my the 10th Tribe beanie and some green and black items. My Modern Vice Camo Jetts go perfectly with this kind of moto and army themed ensemble. I love me some post-work reading.
Finally, after probably one of the busiests weeks of my life, I’m back home!! It was really lovely to some my family while I was in Montreal as well as some old friends but as I’ve said before, there’s nothing quite like sleeping in your own bed!! I did however make good use of my hotel’s gym and lot’s of room service while I was away… It made the week go by faster!
Only 3 weeks before our departure for France, so thrilled! I’m really looking forward to being home for those three weeks before I leave again for a month. I’m going to take that time to make lot’s of homemade meals, write Christmas cards, enjoy our newly decorated apartment, lakefront runs and catching up with friends! What is it you love doing most after coming home from a trip?
Kept it pretty basic for today’s outfit. Stripes, super comfy & soft TOPSHOP skinnies and some spiked boots.
Happy Monday everyone! The countdown to my France trip has begun! 29 days and counting! Can’t wait to be back in this beautiful country!
How was your weekend? I had a fabulous time in the city with my childhood best friend! We had a tasty dinner at one of my favorite spots – Terroni. Also went for a beautiful run on the waterfront, enjoyed some pampering at The Ten Spot and did a bit of shopping on Queen West. Finished our night with the Keanu Reeves directorial debut film – Man of Tai Chi (already available on iTunes), which was unfortunately riddled with clichés and lot’s of cheese. That said, there were some well choreographed fight sequences.
In my ears this morning, the new The Balconies record Fast Motions! Keeping my pumped for this upcoming week! If you’ve pledged to their new record, you can now download it for free via the Pledge Music site 🙂
Today’s daily outfit apparently makes me look like Serena Ryder. I take that as a compliment, the woman’s got mad rock n’ roll style! Wearing my big black floppy hat with my super comfy burnt orange stretchy scoop neck tee and some Anine Bing pants and boots.
Forever 21 burnt orange zip pocket tee

So excited about the upcoming weekend! One of my childhood best friends that lives in NYC will be coming to Toronto for the weekend. Can’t wait to hit up some great restaurants, go for a lakeside run and catch up!
For today’s outfit, I went back to my Friday dress wearing tradition! I dressed down a simple black jersey dress with a sleeveless jean jacket and my rad Camo Jetts from Modern Vice.
