I love the shimmery blush pink and chartreuse in this collection, its just enough.

Montreal-based designer Eve Gravel just gets what I want for summer clothes. Her Spring/Summer 2016 collection is perfect, and has just enough unique touches to turn heads without being too trendy.
I love the black and white outfits accented with blush runners. The pastel prints avoid an overly-sweet feel being in boxier silhouettes. Just good stuff, you know?
Definitely a more polished, cosmopolitan feel. Lots of good stuff for work and play, and note the pops of pastel nail polish which takes these looks to the next level.

Later this summer I will be going to a wedding in Europe. Naturally, I’m freaking out about what to wear.
I think I will emulate this as best I can using existing items in my wardrobe, and add a few sharp accessories for a little sparkle.
Another reason this collection appeals to me is because I feel like Sylvia Plath would wear it. Did you know that she spent her honeymoon in Spain in 1956? I’m reading her Letters Home right now which is incredible. She was just so damn smart. No wonder she was a Fulbright Scholar.
The people here are also another source of amazement and new discovery. I don’t think I’ve ever been so conscious of the dignity and capacity of women. Why, even in my home there is a startling collection of intelligent, perceptive girls–each one fascinating in her own way. I enjoy knowing people well and learning about their thoughts and backgrounds.

With a Spring/Summer 2016 collection named “Carnival of Curiosity,” how can you resist the hyper-colourful and playful designs by Canadian designer Hayley Elsaesser? The diversity of this lookbook (above) is awesome, and her runway shows are super-diverse as well! So happy to see Canadian designers like Elsaesser leading the way.
This coat-dress thing by Canadian designer Mikhael Kale is brilliant. The contrasting orange and blue is eye-catching but not blinding. The sleeves and pristine while collar wink at the conservative silhouette, while the feathery blue hem hints at something more playful.
It girls take note now–couldn’t you totally see everyone from Alexa Chung to Kiernan Shipka sporting this look?
