Little Things...

Spring is a really gorgeous time of the year ~ when it's nice, that is...and so far we have been incredibly lucky in Ottawa because after what seemed (to me at least) like a never-ending winter we are enjoying a deliciously warm and sunny spring...so in the spirit of all things lovely and sunny here are some amazing images reminiscent of the lovely season that is spring...enjoy...

Fashion Inspiration...

The weather is getting hotter and this makes me so happy...dresses have come out of their hiding in the depths of my closet and even though the growing baby belly won't allow me to fit into most of them right now, I simply love just having them in my line of sight, knowing that summer is just around the corner...with that being said here are some other gorgeous fashion and style ideas to get you all ready for the lovely summer season...enjoy...
 ...I am loving bold prints at the moment especially when mixed with neutrals...
 ...coral and white ~ yes please!...
 ...matching a chunky cropped leather jacket with a soft flowy dress is perfect for this summer...
 ...love the baby blues and the bright yellows...
 ...a pair of wide-leg bright yellow trousers ~ drool!...
 ...loving the look of a chunkier knit sweater with a pair of shorts...
 ...maxi skirts are always a favourite...
 ...LOVE!!!...
 ...Love, Love, LOVE...
 ...white, denim and sequins ~ always a great combo...
 ...I am in love with nautical anything especially stripes, even though right now I look a little bit like a pot-bellied bumble bee when I wear them...
 ...maxi dresses ~ need I say more...
...a simple white T paired with a soft blazer and white pants can go a long way...

...okay folks, that's it from me for today...I am off to enjoy the weather in one of my favourite maxi dresses that miraculously still fits me (I am finding joy in small places lately)...hope you are all having a lovely and warm week...until next time...

Em's Place...

While in my hometown (Toronto) I had the chance to catch up with good friends, eat good food and drink good drinks (non-alcoholic of course)...one good friend in particular, Emily, had me over for a lovely brunch and I could not resist taking some snapshots of her beautiful and eclectic apartment...her place may be small but boy it sure packs a lot of style...Em is incredibly creative and does sewing, felting, cross-stictching, baking, you name it-girl's got skills! As a matter of fact she created most of the necessary details for our baby nursery (photos coming soon, I promise!)...and although I did not have my camera with me, I was able to catch most of the loveliness via instagram (oh how much I love instagram it's an obsession really!) Anyway here are some of the details I managed to capture...enjoy...
 ...table cloth made by Em...
 ...love birds...
 ...squid pillow made by Em...
 ...a plethora of vibrant fabrics bring colour and playfulness to the space...
 ...a vintage find...
 ..."Operah Saves", painted by Em's partner's mom...
 ...books on display...
 ...one stylish Eiffel Tower...
 ...a bathroom cart converted into a mini bar ~ brilliant!...
 ...a must-read for any fashion-theorist...
 ...tea time...
 ...zen details...
...inspirational posters adorn the walls, trust me folks when you are writing a PhD dissertation, you need all the inspiration you can get!...

...isn't the space absolutely lovely? Thanks Em for letting me take photos of your apartment (and for the yummy brunch!)...for the rest of you, enjoy the week...

Snapshots...

Here are a few snapshots from my last few days in Toronto...loving this city more and more each day...
...a view from above {Panorama @ Manulife }
...arrival...
...Early evening...
 ...street style...
 ...breakfast at home...
 ...finding the time to enjoy checking out other people's homes, a favourite activity of mine...
 ...could not have said it better myself...
 ...cuteness...
 ...Yorkville...
 ...reunited at last...
 ...randomness on my walk around my old neighbourhood...

As much as I complain about the lack of time to see everyone I really want to see when I am here, I have to say it's been a lovely 1.5 weeks re-discovering my old hometown...I miss it so much, but I guess I am lucky to be close enough to visit on a semi-regular basis...hope you are all having a good mid-week, until next time...
 Love K
