Just prancing around beautiful Milan in Italian clothes and kilos of gelato in the system due to the insanely hot sun. I started this beautiful day in peace- walking around Corso Como and visiting the boutique in the photos above which I highly recommend. Part of me was dragging me to the park across the street, and oddly enough I must admit that sitting in the park with only nature in sight was one of the most sensational moments of my month. I never used to believe New-Yorkers who would say “you get sick of the city after a while and feel like you’re trapped, and all you want is to be in nature”. I’d be like “oh p-l-e-a-s-e.” It’s true though, their hips don’t lie. It’s amazing what five minutes on the grass, in nature can do to your day. Humans are beings of the wild, something in our hearts attracts us to the beach, to the forest, to primary values such as family and the comfort it brings. So it’s no wonder that in modern day society there’s so much anxiety and panic- we’re living in obverse conditions for extended periods of time. Don’t forget to get back to nature every once in a while, you won’t regret it.

After being a freak in the park I walked to the MSGM show and then straight after to the Au Jour Le Jour show, both of which were so cool. The Au Jour Le Jour print was decked out in sequinned sushi/maki decals and fruit prints, which I was totally swooning over. It’s an endlessly interesting experience to see how much New York, London and Milan fashion weeks are different. Paris the dream here. One day.. okay well one day after I thoroughly do some naturalistic rehabilitation.

Playing “style chameleon” is kind of fun, no?
Being as flexible with your style as laffy taffy (god did I really just say that?) is both a benefit and a punishment. It’s great because you never stop having fun with your looks and dressing up in the morning is synonymous to putting on a new character for the day. However, when you’re travelling and you pack your 50 antagonistic styles of clothing, pulling looks is very, very difficult. So often I wish I had a vest with my outfit or a certain pair of shoes I left back home in Toronto. Honestly, most fashion bloggers travel more than me and seem to never have these issues. Howwww do you do it, people?

You’ll never see me in a suit, I’m so anti 9-5 that this look, in all seriousness, is quite comedic. The snazzy grey two-piece is from chicwish, and thankfully it was super affordable, which I appreciate if I’m playing with a new style or a trend I’m not fully sold on. I ordered a bunch of stuff from them so sorry if I overload you with their cuteness in the next few posts. Can’t help myself. I decided to embrace this new style for the first day of Milan Fashion Week, where I flew to totally last minute (flights booked like 10 hours before take off) and met up with Emma, a lovely stylist from Elle Girl magazine who I met in Moscow.

I just walked in my first LFW runway show a couple of days ago, which was such a dream come true. So much travelling is ahead of me, I can’t even keep up with myself and my plans. I honestly wish I had somebody by my side to help me organize my brain. Any takers?
