Cherry blossom season is a precious time in Toronto. Everyone rushes to High Park to see the Sakura bloom in late April or Early May. This spring was no exception, and I was glad to be back in town to catch the last of the blooms. I actually found a secret spot in Toronto, close to my new home which was completely tourist free! If you send me a message, I can share the secret…
Mother’s Day is around the corner, and I wanted to help make shopping easier with 5 Mother’s Day gift ideas. From a cute pair of pyjamas to personalized jewelry, there’s plenty of options for last-minute gifts!
1. A Personalized Locket
Pandora is a perfect choice for Mother’s Day. The brand is known for their charm bracelets, but this season, just in time for mother’s day, there’s the Floating Heart Locket. Inside, your mom can swap out little charms that move freely within the locket. It’s a neat effect, and definitely customizable. I also love that the piece is versatile and can be worn without the charms as well. The $30 – $55 price point for the charms inside are also extremely accessible!
I’m wearing the Floating Heart Locket with Infinite Love Petites charms. I styled it over a white pleated blouse with bell sleeves from H&M, high-waisted jeans from American Eagle, and a Gucci Marmont belt. This outfit is super simple, and allows my accessories to shine. I love layering dainty jewelry pieces over a white blouse or t-shirt for a simple, elegant look. The white blouse makes for the perfect blank canvas and highlights the locket’s moving pieces.
When I visited Southern California in January, visiting the beach and a vintage amusement park was on my bucket list. My sister knew the perfect place… Belmont Park. This park, complete with a vintage white wooden coaster and carousel, was set along a strip of sand at Mission Beach. We went there on my last day in San Diego, caught the sunset and had some ice cream. To match the vintage scenery, I wore a pastel blue Dixa Layered Lace Dress from Ted Baker, a black chain hand bag (similar here) and macaron heels from Daisy Street available at ASOS.
The first Monday in May is easily the Super Bowl of fashion. Especially when you have Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen as stylish co-chairs. This year’s exhibit is Rei Kawakubo/Comme Des Garçons Art of the In-Between, honoring the artistry of Kawakubo. I’m really looking forward to checking out the exhibit later this month myself, but for now, on to the best and worst dressed attendees at the Met Gala 2017. The dress code for this year was to dress “avant garde” which is a bit of a tall order. Many celebrities completely missed the mark, and dressed in typical Oscar gowns you’d normally see in February. Of course, some celebrities brought their A-game.
PS this roundup is Kardashian-free. Even though I love Kim’s simple white Vivienne Westwood dress, which is avant-garde for her.
Best Dressed at the Met Gala 2017:
6. Rihanna in Comme des Garçons. This look is polarizing, but to me, it’s perfect for the event, and more importantly, Rihanna.
5. Tracee Ellis Ross in Comme Des Garçons. This look is avant-garde, and by the same designer of the event. It’s elegant, cool, and isn’t overpowering.
4. Lily Collins wore a Cinderella gown, and incorporated Kawakubo’s signature short fringe bob, and a unique silhouette with the drop waist of the gown.
3. Aymeline Valade wore an incredible embellished cyan suit. It’s cool, and effortless. I would wear this in real life.
2. Cara Delevigne wore a chic Chanel suit, hot off the runway. I love the metallic embellishment, complete with the avant-garde silver head. This was avant-garde done right.
