Montreal & Daisies

Here are few photos from my mini-vacation to Montreal last week! We stayed for two nights to enjoy the shopping, eating, and museums in the city. Montreal is one of my favorite cities because of its European feel—the official language is French, and there are amazing bakeries everywhere serving delectable pastries. The nightlife is also reputably fun!

A chance to shop in the city was long overdue for me: I made out like a bandit at H&M, found some gems on the sale racks at Zara and French Connection, and also snagged some fun summery tops at the Canadian-based store Garage. You will see some of those new additions to my wardrobe very soon I’m sure!

Nearly every single store we entered had spring pieces on display in daisy prints. Whether the print was large or small, dainty or bold, on skirts or tops or scarves, white daisies on black are definitely in for spring 2014! 

 The pics above and below were taken at the Musee des Beaux Arts de Montreal which has an impressive collection of fine and modern art (and an incredibly challenging staircase). Above, I'm standing next to a Monet! For a day of walking the city and shopping this flowy top was a comfortable and easy choice with jeans and a feminine necklace. We sure ate well too!

Top: Ruche, similar herehere. Necklace: J. Crew, similar. Boots: ModCloth, similar here, size 5.5-6 here. Winter coat: Soia & Kyo. Nails: Butter London, "Sprog."

Daisy prints: Ruche, H&M, Garage, Brandy Melville to name a few.
