Jumpsuit

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

The leopard coat (faux leopard that is!) is officially back out. I forgot just how warm it was and how much I love it with my red hair. Kinda obsessed with this jumpsuit I recently found at H&M. It’s the first time I find one that’s actually long enough for me. I kinda feel like a could be a mechanic wearing this jumpsuit, a dorky mechanic maybe… Happy Monday! 😀

I may have turned 29, 30 recently, but I still feel like a kid at heart. There’s nothing I love more than being silly, goofing off, playing around and being mesmerized or fascinated by new things. I wonder if I’ll ever grow out of it… but then again, maybe I shouldn’t. These past couple of days, I’ve been having so much fun walking around my city, exploring new places in Toronto and taking photos. It’s become a fun ritual for Offner and I and goes above and beyond taking photos of clothes.

Speaking of never growing out of something, I don’t think I’ll ever grow out or grow tired of wearing leopard print. Only time will tell I guess… But I particularly like these pants that I got a little while ago because they are a more subtle version of leopard print.

Maxi Skirt #DailyOutfit

Yesterday, I had mentioned ankle boots being one of my favorite things for spring. A second thing that is worth investing in for this season is also a maxi skirt. You’ve probably seen them all over fashion magazines, on runways and on the street already. Graphic maxi skirts are also super cool. I had purchased the one I’m wearing today last spring at H&M for a whopping $20. I’m definitely considering adding more to my wardrobe this season as well. Pretty much every store are carrying them right now, Topshop has a huge selection and so does ASOS and Forever 21, H&M, etc.

Keep It Lite #DailyOutfit

With spring finally deciding to show  up, I couldn’t be more excited to have received an amazing package from British Columbia (by the way, I’m so due for a visit soon!!) this past weekend. I got some rad new shoes from a Canadian brand called Native Shoes. You may have heard of them already if you’re a big Trouble Andrew fan as he is one of the brand’s ambassadors. You may have also seen their super colorful and quirky ad campaigns, they kind of look straight out of a Wes Anderson movie. If not, a bunch of celebrities including Obama‘s daughters have been spotted sporting these kicks. The reason why I love these shoes so much is that a) as their motto states, they’re super lite and also comfy, b) they’re the perfect post-surfing/wakeboarding/SUP shoe because they’re waterproof and easy to clean c) they’re Canadian!! I’m also a big fan of all of the colors they have for the spring.

Though it’s still a little too chilly to sport them every day, I figured I’d take them out for a trial run today on this beautiful Monday along with my new Anine Bing cropped jeans. What are some of the clothes you’re excited to wear now that the weather has gotten a tiny bit warmer?! Let me know!

WMCFW FW14 Day 2 #DailyOutfit

For today’s outfit, I decided to go channel more my girlyness with some pastel colors, lace and shimmer. I’m not a big fan of baby pink but thought this top was super cute. Pastel colors are really in for the spring and summer so it’s definitely worth investing in if you’re a fan. No need to break the bank though, shops like H&M and Forever 21 have a handful of tops to chose from, that’s in fact where I got mine!

Hello Kidogo Kidogo #DailyOutfit

I was really excited to receive in the mail today two Kidogo Kidogo iphone cases and here’s why: Kidogo Kidogo (which means “little by little” in Swahili)  is a super cool nonprofit organization that was started by two sisters (after the youngest of the two spent time working in development in Africa) in Richmond, Virginia. Their goal: to bring mobile technology to women in Tanzania (only 36% of women who live there have a mobile phone!) who otherwise could not afford it. Pretty cool huh? Basically, for each phone case the girls sell, they buy a phone or phone credits for a woman in Tanzania. Reading up on Kidogo Kidogo, made me realize that we often take for granted just how many things we can do with our phones in addition to calling/texting. As they write: “A mobile phone is a flashlight, a watch, a camera and a radio. It’s a way to make secure banking transactions, monitor consumer markets, stay abreast of changing weather and receive health reminders and updates.”

All the iPhone cases were designed by a Tanzanian-based artist named Sarah Markes, which feature some of Tanzania’s most iconic wildlife.

Love my two new cases! Looking forward to seeing how Kidogo Kidogo grows!

Little Plaid Number #DailyOutfit

Excited to be meeting up with the lovely Uranium crew today! It’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to go see them in Montreal so I can’t wait to hear all about their design plans for 2014!

Any song that starts with “J’aimerais une fille aux cheveux roux près de moi” meaning “I’d like to have a redheaded girl close to me” gets my attention! It’s so rare to have people talk about gingers in their music. Love this rad new song from Montreal artist Philémon Cimon. Perfect Thursday pick me up track! What’s your track of the day? #earcandy

Winter Shorts #DailyOutfit

Back in Toronto after being on the road for almost a week. I had a great time in Ottawa! I was able to eat at some of my favorite spots in the city: Murray Street (the best cheese & wine in Ottawa!) and also a new hotspot called Sidedoor : where they served the most delicious donuts!! I also really loved their tacos and all of their sharing plates. You have to hit these two restaurants on your next trip to the Canadian capital!

Getting use out of my shorts today! It may be hella cold out but wearing tights with shorts is always a fun look. It makes me think that summer is only a few months away… Can’t wait to soak up some sun rays in Miami and LA next month!

Green & Black Tribe #DailyOutfit

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.

Beanie’s Back #DailyOutfit

Snow may not have hit Toronto yet but it’s definitely beanie weather again. I found this super cute knit beanie at H&M the other night and thought it’d be the perfect addition to my growing beanie collection. I used to think I looked silly with a beanie on but it’s definitely grown on me! Do you like beanies? Do you think it’s just a fad?

Speaking of H&M, how exciting is the new Isabel Marant x H&M collection that will be out on November 14th? Everyone’s been talking about it for the last couple of weeks. I saw tons of photos from the official launch in Paris last week and a bunch from the H&M collection preview last night in Toronto. Here are some of my fav looks from their ad campaign… These looks will be flying off the shelves in no time, mark my words!
