I don’t know about you but I have days where I simply wonder where I am heading… I ask myself questions like: What does life have in store for me? Where will I be in five years and what will I be doing? When you are in your twenties, you think you know exactly what you want and work towards it. Right!?! Then come your thirties and you realize that you didn’t know anything and you are now trying to figure out what you really want. You actually know who you are by now! You are independent, more confident, more assertive when it’s time to make decisions and not influenced by what others think! But at the same time, you feel the need to reassess the road you are taking and realize that it is quite a difficult task! And once you do, getting there is an even tougher challenge, especially when you have crazy dreams like me! I have been feeling like that lately... I have my moments of doubt… Why am I doing this? Do I really want to continue in that direction?
Then, you meet someone that shares the same wild aspirations and believes in you in ways that you had forgotten existed! This is exactly what happened to me this week! I was lucky enough to meet and fall in love with not one but two amazing guys! They are fabulous young fashion designers and entertainers from Montreal that eat, drink and breath fashion! It was so refreshing to see how much we had in common! Just talking about our different projects, their mission and how we will collaborate to make them happen was utterly inspiring! Our energies were simply contagious! They reminded me why I was doing this and why I shouldn’t give up my passion! I am excited and looking forward to collaborating with Jason and Nico and I sincerely feel that a beautiful friendship will also come out of this! Stay tuned :)
Being in between two seasons and because I am a woman, I sometimes don’t know what to wear! In those moments, I choose my different “go to” pieces, the items of clothing I know I will feel good and comfortable in. I have worn each one of them in other posts but not together or this way! In this situation I started by choosing my favourite leggings and matched them with a simple white shirt. The faux-leather mix panel are a cool touch and give the leggings that extra edge while the shirt has an effortless feel. I paired them with my platform booties for some height. Ok! A lot of height :) But, also because they are extremely comfortable! While sandals are going back to hibernation, leather jackets are resurfacing! Perfect for a chill fall night, the moto vibe works well with the leggings. After realizing that my whole outfit was black and white, I chose to sport my burgundy wool fedora and lipstick for a pop of color and my new gold and fringe necklace for some extra flair! How do you find that look?
Have a great day everyone!
