The Return of the Bermuda Short

It would seem that for the past few Spring seasons (which have seemed like eons to me) short shorts ruled the urban catwalk. This season, we're seeing hemlines fall to just above the knee (much to my excitement), which I see as a breath of fresh air. Love them or hate them, bermuda shorts are back! Seen on countless runways, including Rag & Bone, DKNY, Alexander Wang and Nicole Miller, I think it's safe to say that bermuda shorts are here to stay!

What do you think of the trend? Will you be sporting it come springtime?


Lookbook Love: Ax and Apple

Ax + Apple designer, Jamie Lyn, uses objects such as world coins, men's pocket watch chains, pen knives and other knick knacks from a collection that she's accumulated to create jewellery that is modern with a vintage feel. The brand's most recent lookbook, "Year of the Snake" caught my interest with its artistic edge and  eye catching use of colour. Just see for yourself...

What I Would Wear: Osheaga

The line-up for the Osheaga music festival, which takes place over the span of three days (August 2-4 are this year's dates) each summer in Montreal, was released on Monday. Some of my absolute favourite bands, like The Cure, New Order, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix and Beach House are playing. Now, there is absolutely no way that I will be able to make it to this festival due to insufficient funds and that possibility that I won't even be in the country this summer (more on that later)! A girl can dream, though, can't she? I've decided to put together three Osheaga-worthy outfits that I would wear to the festival of my dreams...

Day 1
 top-Givenchy, hat-Borsalino, bracelet-LK Designs, shorts-Topshop, bag-Modekungen, sandals-Rachel Comey
Day 2

Beauty Trend: Less is More

I don't usually post about beauty for the sole reason that I know next to nothing about makeup and skin care. Not to mention that I rarely even wear makeup myself (other than the occasional bit of lipstick and nude eyeshadow to brighten my eyes when I'm looking a bit sleepy).

Lucky for me, many NYFW designers sent models down the runway with minimal, natural beauty looks for Fall 2013 RTW and I just can't get enough!

Girl Crushing: Caroline Issa

Caroline Issa (you may have seen her in one of J Crew's campaigns back in 2012) is the executive fashion director of London's Tank magazine and she's my current girl crush. I would even go so far as to say that she's replaced the likes of Alexa Chung as my #1 style icon. She has a knack for mixing prints and pairing unexpected pieces together.
