BONNECHERE


This spring/summer, I've made a goal to visit more off-the-beaten paths in the province I was born and raised in, Ontario. It's going to be challenging with the multiple work I am juggling with but it will certainly happen. Last weekend, my friends and I visited the Bonnechere Caves in Eganville (an hour and half outside of Ottawa) and stumbled upon this gorgeous vast river along the trail. It was the highlight of my day, unfortunately, I've been to more interesting caves than this one. Once is good enough to say I've seen it and made an experience with it.

The day was very humid so I styled as light as possible with this ribbed tunic dress and flat leather sandals. I went bare face with second day hair (hair went flat & the humidity will surely melt my face).

BUTTONED DOWN DENIM SKIRT AND CROP SWEATER TANK


As Waight Keller, creative director for Chloé, herself put it "I liked the idea of denim, that it can be used raw or washed and it becomes personal to the wearer - it is immediate and honest." Well worded Keller. I absolutely adore this button down denim skirt that looks very Chloéand I noticed Aimee Song also wearing the same Zara skirt (here) on her insta. Just recent, my colleague asked me "if I had to wear one designer head-to-toe, who would it be?".  I didn't have an answer for him yet, but I suddenly remembered when I got home that evening. Why Chloé? The Chloé girl embodies a feeling of not worrying about anything and casual lack of concern whether it be in a pair of boys' pants, a T-shirt and an amazing coat or sneakers with a long skirt. She has that French concept of beauty: the bedhead hair and no makeup look that she could only carry herself. I'd love to emulate that style and still look fabulous. I am all in for effortless style and beauty. (That's why you won't see me wearing foundation or heavy eye makeup) I have nothing to conceal, the imperfections is your identity and what makes you perfect.
