Spring has sprung! And as you can tell, I’m not a very flowery person. I’m more into clean lines and monotone colour schemes. That’s why I love the Scandinavians, minimalism at its best. That said, my heritage always seeps into my sense of fashion. That flamboyance, mixed with my longing for simplicity, in my opinion is actually quite genius.

I’ve become obsessed with mixing textures lately. Hard and soft, flowy and hard, structure and flowy. I’m obsessed! So when I was looking to pair this beautiful silk birdcage skirt from 424 Fifth, It made sense to me that I would team it up with a cashmere cotton mix turtleneck. I was hoping, at first for a man-replelling outfit. What I got instead was mother-in-law approved!

Shocked that I’m wearing print?  And not just any print, Watercolor print??

After a week of feeling bleh! Battling a bout of the flu and Mariah Carey type exhaustion, I felt a certain lack of inspiration. Usually when this happens I’ll pick up a good book or the latest issue of Vogue Nippon (that usually almost does the trick). This time I craved for something intense. So I took to wandering the streets of Vancouver and researching my once favorite artists. One of them who happens to be Winslow Homer. So it almost seemed like fate when I saw this jacket peeking at me from my bursting closet.  Not to sound cliche but wearing this jacket brought a little sunshine into my life. So maybe, just maybe I might be a print convert after all. Thank you Mr Homer for your inspiration on a slightly chilly day.

New York Fashion week has just gone by and I’ve been glued to the blogs and Instagram like never before. Thank you The Cut for your daily dose of fashion week goodness. I’m particularly excited about new brands that I haven’t heard before. Chromat is high on my list of SS15 favorites . I could rave and rave but then I’ll let you all decide for yourselves.
