The weather in Toronto has been absolutely beautiful lately. My tree-lined street is as green as green gets, and the aromatic scent of lilacs and freshly cut grass fills the air. I love springtime in the city. Yesterday, I was able to get away to High Park for about an hour to wander the grounds. If you’ve never been to the park in the city’s west end, put it on your to-do list. It is a sprawling green oasis in the middle of a concrete jungle, filled with an abundance of flowers and wildlife; there is even a zoo! (Although maybe not for much longer.)
What I wore: Filippo Catarzi Sun Hat / Leakey Collection Necklaces / Covet Tank / Fidelity Denim / H&M Bangle / MacLeod of Cape Breton Rings / Joe Fresh Patent Leather Sandles / Straw Bag from TJ MAXX
Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, but rather than post a gift guide (because really, who knows what your mother likes better than you do?) I thought I would compile some of the most stylish maternity wear for all you moms-to-be*.
It seems like every time I log into Facebook or Twitter, another one of my friends announces their pregnancy, and following all of their baby bump photo albums has become my guilty pleasure. But, I’m often told how frustrating it is to get dressed when your body changes every week, so I went on a mission to find fashionable pieces that will last the duration of your pregnancy, and even some that will last long after you’re holding your little bundle of joy.
*Dearest Family, I am not in this category, so no need to call me about it.
Hatch is all about versatility, and creating wardrobe essentials that can be worn before, during, and after your pregnancy.
If you were only going to buy one fashion investment piece in your lifetime, the argument for it being a little black jacket by Chanel is a pretty solid one. Chanel is synonymous with ‘timeless’ and ‘classic’; you will have it, and wear it forever. To showcase just how much this is true, Karl Lagerfeld (Chanel’s head designer) and Carine Roitfeld (former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris) teamed up to create the ultimate retrospective of the iconic little black Chanel jacket. The book, which was photographed by Lagerfeld himself and styled by Roitfeld, will be out in August and features some of the fashion world’s biggest movers and shakers donning the LBJ, and showcasing its versatility. Here are some of my favorite shots, as well as a two short videos: The making of the the book, and the making of the jacket itself.
