3 Outfits for a Chilly/Rainy F1 Weekend

This weekend in Montreal, it’s all about the F1 Canadian Grand Prix. Race car drivers have been circling the laps of our Circuit Gilles Villeneuve  race track since 1978, so you can say to us Montrealers, it’s basically become a holiday. The streets are full of fancy cars, our top restaurants are booked way in advance, the clubs are popping with partiers galore, and of course, there are beautiful women everywhere.

The weather is usually quite fair, but this weekend we are experiencing some chillier than usual air. There is also some spurts of rain throughout the days, but that doesn’t stop us from being able to enjoy this once-a-year racing extravaganza. It also doesn’t prevent us stylish Montrealers to dress to impress! Here, I’ve featured 3 different ensembles that’s suitable for the weather, as well as the occasion. 1st, we have the casual day outfit, 2nd, the racing outfit, and 3rd, the night time outfit!

Will you be joining in on the F1 festivities? If so, are you a local or visiting? And if you’re visiting, is this your first experience? Clearly, I love to ask questions, which means I love to hear your thoughts and comments!!

Have a wonderful Friday, and amazing weekend. Stay classy and race on!

Blue & Green in NYC

SONY DSCSONY DSC

“Blue & green should never be seen unless it’s in the washing machine.” Anyone ever hear of this saying?? A friend of mine told this to me yeeeeaaaaaars back when I paired something blue & green together. Ever since hearing that, anytime I even thought of pairing the colors together, this would come to mind. Until one day I just said “F that”, and I remember putting together a pair of turquoise pants with a dark blue blouse. Needless to say, it looked great!! And I’ve done something similar again yesterday for our walk around The Big Apple!

The weather was not too warm, but not too cold, which meant for the most part, pants & a light jacket were needed. I instantly fell in love with this lime green top while shopping in Vegas (yes, apparently I had another item I forgot about! Well, here it is ;)). At first, I admit that I would’ve paired the top with a neutral blazer, until I thought to myself, once again, “F that!” So out came that turquoise blazer I love oh-so-much!! Where does the blue come in? Well, I needed to carry something around for my girly things, and went with my blue clutch. Blue & green! I would like to think that they work together, you just have to be a little more careful with the shades while pairing them :)

Now we’re off to eat some more, as always, and we’ll be checking out the MET today and I’m super stoked! Have a great day, and stay classy!

Boyfriend jeans

005

It’s crazy windy today in Montreal, and the whipping winds are not making the weather that easy to handle. One day it’s +25, the next, it’s +6…back to pants for now!! Which is a good thing because it means I can show you my new pair of boyfriend jeans from Vegas!

I’ve been searching for the perfect boyfriend cut, and after coming across these True Religion pair, I knew they were the ones!! Not too loose, but also not tight (which is usually my go-to style of pant). I also love the distressed patches on the front. Makes them a bit more “rough” looking.

I adore a great boyfriend cut jean because they’re so versatile! Dress them up with a nice top and a pair of heels, or down with a simple tee and some cute flats. Really, almost anything goes, so have fun with it!!

Hope all you lovely realists had an awesome weekend! Stay classy!

Sin City; Day 2, shopping, eating & girls night

Yesterday was a beautiful day full of shopping, eating, and then a night out.

Our first stop was at the Premium Outlets Las Vegas. They’ve got so many great stores there, I just can’t contain myself!! Although, I was a very good girl and didn’t over shop! (It’s also because my luggage was already too full so I couldn’t really fit much more in there :P) I did get to score some awesome deals at a couple of stores and will definitely be showing them off as soon as I get the chance!

After shopping, we all had our first DDD experience (Diners, Drive-in’s, & Dive’s) at a little restaurant called Bachi Burger. SOOOOO GOOD!! Guy Fieri wasn’t lying to us when he said that everyone had to try this place! The food was excellent, the sangria was sake instead of wine, and the prices were great!! Hands down one of the cheapest meals I’ve eaten in Vegas so far, so that’s always great! ;)

After, once again, having to be rolled out of the restaurant because we, once again, stuffed our faces full of food, we came back to the hotel and just hung out at the room and got ready for our first clubbing experience in Vegas at a little place called Surrender. One of us girls has already done the clubbing thing lots of times in Vegas, but she has yet to go to this specific spot. Held at the Wynn, during the day it’s a pool area, and at night, turned club. Absolutely gorgeous, and HUGE! Only Vegas would have such grand clubs like these! We were there to see the UK duo Nero. Amazing set! I’m a huge fan so I was so stoked to be seeing them.

There are not too many pictures from yesterday because we were so busy running around, but I did manage to snap a few. Stay tuned for more stories of my adventure, and also, stay classy!

Sin City; Day 1, strolling the strip

SONY DSCSONY DSC

Hello realists!! Vegas is treating me great so far! The food is wonderful, the weather is perfect, and I’m up on roulette!!! ;) Oh, how I love this wonderful city!!

Yesterday, we were waiting for the 4th member of our crew to fly in at night, so we took it easy by just strolling the strip and making our way to Bacchanal, the buffet at Caesars Palace. A little pricier than your typical buffet, but the food is far from typical! Freshly shucked oysters, jumbo cocktail shrimp, sushi (and good sushi, not the usual “don’t eat that” sushi you’ll find at buffets), and a dessert table that will literally make you gain a few pounds just by looking at it!

After needing to all be rolled out of there, we made a quick stop at Fashion Show Mall. I was able to snag a beautiful pair of Brian Atwood heels from Neiman Marcus for half price! I’ve mentioned it before, and I’ll say it again, I love sales!! :) (I was also very happy that I was able to win back most of my shoe money on roulette at night!) After being high from this wonderful purchase, we made our way back to our hotel for some pool time.

Now, amongst all this pleasant talk, I have some bad news. Somewhere, somehow, along our walk, the lens’ on my camera broke…how, I have no clue! One minute I’m taking pictures, the next, the strangest noise was coming out of it! We passed by a camera shop along the trip back, and the guy there told me that my lens was broken. And just like good ol’ Vegas hospitality, he tried very hard to sell me a new one…no thank you, I just spent my money on some sexy heels. Shitty, yes, so now you’ll have to view my trip through my trusty IPhone. Not a dslr, but can definitely take some good pictures under the right circumstances ;)

Besides the camera incident, everything is great! Here are a few pics of my strolling outfit, accompanied by some group/scenery shots. Enjoy, and stay classy!!

Vegas Flight Attire

Vegas! Woohoo! So excited to be in this energetic, and hot, city! This is not my first time here, nor my last, but it’s my first time spending it with only girls! (This will get interesting ;)) So, as promised, I will keep up with my posting ( I know I missed yesterday’s, but it was quite hectic!), and here’s my first outfit/story that started in Montreal, and ended in Vegas!

The past few times that I’ve flown for more than an hour, I’ve always worn the typical flight ensemble; tights, a tee, and a sweater for when it gets chilly. I already am not a huge fan of flying, so getting dressed up for it was never thought of, until this flight! Now, I didn’t “dress up”, but I did settle on wearing this simple, black, maxi dress, accompanied by my trusty turquoise blazer.

This maxi dress is perfect in the sense that it cost me, drumroll, $13!!! As I was strolling through the mall the other day, preparing for the photo shoot I just took part in, I strolled past none other than Sirens and saw this dress hanging there with the price card “$13”. I haven’t walked into a Sirens in yeeeaaaaaars, but I thought “What’s the shame in trying it?” Good thing I did!! Fits perfect, love a racer-back and v-neck anything, and it’s comfy! Score!

First day was just mostly us hanging poolside, so not many pictures to show, but I will definitely be bringing you some! Keep reading, and stay classy!

P.s. These pictures are not the best, please forgive me, but they will get better! I’ll make sure to get somewhere (outside ;)) with better lighting! :)

Grand-parents’ 50th anniversary

DSC04500

This past Saturday was a big deal for our family. It was my grand-parents’ 50th anniversary! 50 years together. I think “Wow!”, and then I remember “Oh right, I’m married too and will be making that mark one day as well…” This August is my 5th anniversary (woohoo!) Another 45 years to go ;)

To help celebrate this wonderful occasion, we all decided to throw them a surprise party at this awesome Greek restaurant called Mythos. My grand-parents are as Greek as they come, so to know that they would enjoy eating/dancing here was a given!

Now, any reason for me to dress up is a good reason, although  I like to believe that you don’t really “need” a reason, per se. So, with the weather really warming up in Montreal, I had the pleasure of pulling out this beautiful maxi dress that I’m absolutely in love with. Everything from the colors, to the way it fits, down to the draped fabric on the right side. Also, for this special occasion, I felt that it was a perfect time to pull out my wedding shoes. I try to wear these sexy babies as often as I can!

On another note, I’ll be leaving for Sin City tomorrow. Yes, Las Vegas, baby! I’m so excited for this trip because I’ll be spending it with some of my cousins, and I’ve yet to go to Vegas with only girls. I’ll be sure to continue with my posts, so make sure to tune in and read all about my vacation in Vegas!

You don’t need me to remind you, stay classy, realists!

Shopping casual

SONY DSC

Yesterday was a busy day for me (hence the reason why I didn’t get the chance to post anything. Please forgive me!). I was running around the shopping mall, preparing for a photo shoot I’ll be styling this coming Sunday (Yes, I style! Stay tuned, pics and stories to come!), which meant I needed a versatile enough outfit to run in and out of stores, all the while holding tons of shopping bags.

Sneakers, skinnies, and a loose top. Pretty much my go-to outfit when in times like these. Stylish-comfy can still be done while sporting some Converse ;) I’ve featured these jeans and sweater on the blog before, but they have yet to be together, until now! I love the faded blue on these jeans paired up against a bright color, in this case, orange. Along with the white sneakers, a casual, yet far from boring, ensemble!

I’m excited to show you guys pictures from the shoot, so make sure to check in! Until then, realists, stay classy :)

Linen for the office

SONY DSC

My brother recently gave me an idea for a post. He is one of the many people that have to go into an office Monday to Friday, so he suggested I post about an outfit appropriate for an office environment. So here is my take on an ensemble suitable for work featuring the linen pant!

I love a great pair of linen pants. I’ve had these pants for quite a few years now, and it’s great because they never go out of style! How do you say no to a neutral, linen pant? Perfect for the beach, shopping, dinner, movies, or as seen here, the workplace! It all depends on what you pair them with.

What are your takes on a linen pant? What about linen in general? You know I love to hear your thoughts, so please, tell me! :) And continue to stay classy, the weekend is just around the corner ;)

SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSCLove the color-blocking on these shoes! It’s always that subtle touch that makes an item stand out ;)SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSCShirt: Mango, Pants: Calvin Klein, Shoes: BCBG
