Simple and classic with a geek twist, Jenna Lyons’ style is always on point. Here are some of her best looks that I can’t stop inspiring myself of!
I love blogs. Especially the ones on fashion, lifestyle and design. Through the years, some bloggers really captivated me and got me to come back and read them day after day. P.S. I love fashion is one of these captivating blogs. Linda Juhola is a twenty something student living in Stockholm and documenting her style, her beauty finds, her food and fitness routines, as well as her café/restaurant outings. I simply love her young and sophisticated looks that somehow feel effortless. From summer outfits, to going-out looks or inspiration for a weekend strut in town, Linda Juhola truly has an inspiring fashion and style.

Here are some of her striking looks
Last February 20th I went to the Maroon 5 concert at the Bell Center downtown. I was going with a friend and she was really reallyyyyy excited about it! I was excited too, but let’s say I was less of a Maroon 5 fan than she was! Well, the show was incredibly entertaining and was a feast for the eyes because of all the pyrotechnics (and Adam Levine I may add !)! The concert was a line-up of hit song after hit song, beautifully sung by Adam Levine’s live voice … and frankly I was impressed with how many hits Maroon 5 has produced over the years (remember ”Sunday Morning ” 2004? ). It was an amazing show, and now I can’t stop listening to their albums! Here are a few pictures of that night !
Lately I’ve been listening to some Beyoncé, returning to her old albums and hits. I guess her incredible SuperBowl half-time show performance made me want to revisit her music. But I must admit her 2011 ”4” album really has been playing on repeat. The album has various types of melodies and beats, goes from soul wrenching to up-beat. ”Best thing I never had”, ”1+1”, ”I was here”, ”Countdown”, ”Run the world (girls)” are just some of my favorite Beyoncé songs. The one and only song on this fabulous album that I just can’t stop playing is ”Love on Top”, that song just keeps bringing me to this up-lifting, old school, intense, happy place, and I just can’t get enough! The lyrics are simple but so incredibly realistic and express a very profound and honest love for the other half. Here is a link to her official ”Love on top” video … bring the beat in, as Beyoncé says !
We all know Taylor Swift. No matter if we know her from her top-selling music or her famous media-crazed relationships, it is undeniable that the 23-year-old pop singer has become a style icon. She is well-known for her preppy and casual looks, and lately I have come to really enjoy her fashion choices. Among her chic dresses on the red carpet, her sleek hairstyles and her cute everyday looks, her footwear have caught my eye. Two words: oxford shoes! I’ve noticed in the last pictures of her that have been over-flowing on TV and in magazines that these shoes were recurrent in her looks. Wether she pairs them with plaid skirts, shorts, cropped jeans, or dresses, and sometimes they are sparkly other times classic, I just love how she wears these oxfords!
Last december Montreal had the chance to see its first Anthropologie store open downtown. I went for the first time last friday and I was glad to see that behind the traditional 20th-century facade of Crescent street resides a 3-floor rustic and contemporary boutique. Customers are greeted with vintage shelves, wood floors, brick walls and antique chairs, which adds some charm to the shopping experience! … Let’s not forget all the clothes and home accessories that are simply exquisite! Definitely a place to see!
En décembre dernier, Montréal a eu la chance d’accueillir sa première boutique Anthropologie au centre-ville. J’y suis allée pour la première fois vendredi dernier et j’ai été agréablement surprise de découvrir derrière la façade de pierre de la rue Crescent une boutique à la fois rustique et contemporaine de 3 niveaux. Les clients sont accueillis avec des meubles de style vintage, des planchers de bois, des murs de briques et des chaises antiques, bref de quoi agrémenter l’expérience de shopping! …. Sans oublier les vêtements et les accessoires pour la maison qui sont siiii alléchants! Une place qui est certainement à découvrir!
