After a much needed, relaxing, hot and energizing week in Mexico, I had to come back to an icy Montreal! Nothing like a polar vortex to slap you back to reality! Just after getting used to wearing summer dresses and bathing suits becoming my main wardrobe items, I had to readjust pretty fast. My go to piece in this cold winter is definitely a big fluffy turtleneck sweater. It may not be body hugging or sexy but it sure makes you feel all fuzzy inside :) Wool sweaters are my favourites this time of the year and for no logical reason, I happen to have gotten them all in different shades of grey. I guess I like the versatility of the neutral colour and the warmth it brings during this harsh weather.
What I find fits best with wool is leather. The smooth texture yet edgy sense balance well the softness of the wool. You might think, since the top is large, that the logical choice for the bottom would be tight pants! Which I would definitely opt for, with over-the-knee high boots for a killer look ;) But this time I went for a midi skirt, because I was looking for a more casual feel. I still chose wedge booties instead of flats to elongate the already larger frame. It’s an ideal look when going out for an “emergency ” coffee or “need to catch up” dinner with girlfriends. Would I wear this to a third date? No. Leather pants it would be ;) Common ladies! We all know that on the first date you want to look more sexy (but not too much), thus the skinny jeans and fitted jacket or loose silk shirt. On the second date you’re bringing your A-game with the hot little black dress! And on the third date is when you’re more comfortable, but still want to add a twist ;)
Felt amazing to be away under the sun… To sleep more than 5 hours a night… To read stimulating books… To have interesting, deep and challenging conversations with one my besties… To recharge my body, mind and soul… But it also feels good to be back home to actually put in action all those thoughts and goals, that became more clear!
