L’été passé, je me suis retrouver dans mon premier bikini. Depuis ce jour, je me suis promis de ne jamais avoir honte d’en porter un. 

   


    

Il y a quelques années que jamais je pourrais imaginer que j’allais être aussi confortable aujourd’hui, en publique, en train de montrer mon ventre, mes cuisses et mes fesses au monde, mais coucooouuu !!!

And now for my Anglo readers!

Today’s theme: BIKINI!!! 

Last summer I wore my first bikini since my childhood. Since that day, I’ve promised myself to never be ashamed to wear one. 

A few years ago, I never would have fathomed feeling this comfortable in public, showing off my tummy, my thighs, and my butt to the world, but yoohooooo!!! 

Here I am!!!

Totally fabulous in a bikini!!!

Keeping Cool In A Cape

20141016-154755-56875196.jpg
Capes are a super hot trend this fall, and it’s not hard to see why. They’re comfortable, easy to wear, and come on! They’re capes (!!!), pretty much the coolest articles of clothing any human being can own!!!

I picked up this fabulous geo print cape from Zelie For She over the summer, and I’ve been saving it for the perfect autumn weather like we had over the weekend here in Montreal!

Since it’s a cotton cape, it works equally well over a cami, in lieu of a blazer in warmer weather; but my favorite way to wear it is over a cozy, long sleeved top, like this alligator textured sweater, when it is slightly cooler out.

It’s the perfect piece for when it’s just cool enough outside to need something to cover your shoulders, but not cold enough to need a coat.

And the print is EVERYTHING!!!

Paired with some light blue jeggings, black patent pumps for a touch of glam, a stunning, handcrafted African cuff bracelet by La Caverne De Djénéba, and a great pair of sunnies from Forever 21, my cape looked fab and caught the attention of everyone in sight!

Green Tea, Gossip, And Glam

20140717-144533-53133023.jpg
So, I grabbed lunch and a coffee (by coffee, I mean iced green tea, loaded with sugar, cancelling out all possible health benefits) with my favourite ladies yesterday; and I decided to wear one of the newest additions to my closet – this sassy, blush coloured muscle tee from Forever 21+, with the words “eat your heart out” printed across the front.

20140717-143539-52539942.jpg
I am in love with this this top!!! I love a cute graphic tee, but this one is just so perfect, so tongue in cheek, and it works on so many levels!

20140717-153422-56062939.jpg
I paired it with a simple black pencil skirt with waist detail, but I wanted to glam my look up a bit, so I accessorized with this gorgeous iridescent necklace, which looks ridiculously like real opals (swoon), bracelets, as always, and these adorable round, nude framed sunnies which I just picked up on sale at Forever 21, and I absolutely adore!

And finished the look off with my go to footwear this summer, my nude flats, which I will cry over the day they inevitably go to shoe heaven.

It was a beautiful afternoon, filled with giggles, goodies and of course, a little gossip, (don’t judge, you know you do it too) and it was just what I needed this week!!!

Cheers!
