Wear It – Statement Necklace & Simple T-Shirt

July 31, 2013 , In: Fashion, Jewelry, Style , With: 3 Comments

Have you noticed a subtle change on this blog?  I changed the description from ‘Life & Food in Montreal’ to ‘Food, Fashion & Motherhood in Montreal’.  I’ve toyed with the idea for a while now about broadening the scope of this blog.  I feel I am so much more than just food (although that is where the focus will remain) and want to talk about my other interests like fashion, decor, beauty, and fun stuff for kiddos.

First up is fashion.  I was sort of fashionable for a while (pre-child) and then really not fashionable at all (when Bastien was a newborn) and then sort of fashionable (as he grew older).  Now, I want to up my game but with a limited budget, I want to work with what I have.  And I have to be realistic about my requirements.

I’ve started doing street style for Urban Expressions, and have been carefully checking out what people have been wearing all over Montreal.  It didn’t take me long to realize that you can have some fabulous clothes on, but what really makes an outfit is the accessories.  This is good news for me.  As a mom who is changing diapers, feeding a toddler, and often crawling around on the floor on all fours, silk dresses and ‘dry clean only’ just isn’t practical.

I think one of the easiest ways to really ramp up a look from blah to wow is with a statement necklace.  Everyone has t-shirts in their closet.  Just throw on a statement necklace over top, and suddenly you’ve got a whole new look.

Most stores have a statement necklaces these days.  I was lucky enough to have my parents buy me the pink one just above from J. Crew for my birthday.  Thanks Mom & Dad!

Originally from the prairies and now in Montreal, I love exploring new places, eating great food and modern design. I'm mom of two wild things and paper and cake make me happy. Photographing your cutie family would make me very happy.
