A style post.. we know, it's been awhile! But you've been asking for a new one so we thought we'd bring them back. The weather has been up and down lately. Can we talk about the hail the other day? A bit weird right? Mother nature has her quirks. In this transitional time of year, you never know whether to wear a jacket or sandals or to carry an umbrella. We opt for easy layers, that you can peel off if it gets warmer as the day progresses. Durand is magical in the spring. Cherry blossoms and magnolia trees lines the streets. You can't help but stop and admire them. We're also fortunate to live near two gorgeous parks. On this occasion we took a stroll over to the H.A.A.A. grounds on Charlton Avenue and admired all the greenery. We also felt incredibly awkard taking photos while a team of soccer players had practice. But all in the name of street style right?
Stephanie bought me this cat sleep mask filled with French lavender buds for Christmas and I adore it. The scent of the mask, accompanied by the silence of earplugs (I'm addicted!) help me to sleep. You can peruse an assortment of silk, satin and linen patterned masks on the Parisian shop owner's Etsy site Naomilingerie.
We have the worst eyes. You'll likely try to console us, and say "No, no, mine are bad too." Until you find out my prescription. Thanks for the genetics, mom. I got my first pair of glasses in grade six. I was allowed to get my first pair of contact lenses before grade eight graduation and I never looked back. Jacklyn has been wearing contacts since she was thirteen. For us, glasses were always a last resort. Something to be worn while feeling under the weather or before bed. Which is odd, considering our feelings have always been that a man in glasses has extra charm. Remember when Tom Ford launched his opticals in 2006? We do. Swoon.. Anyways, the more of an accessory glasses became over the past few years, the more we wanted to love them on ourselves. I invested in a pair of over sized leopard Yves Saint Laurent frames about three years ago. Given my prescription, they were thick, heavy and I wore them strictly to business meetings in an effort to suggest, "Don't f*#% with me." Immediately following, I would take them off and put my contacts back in. Until about two months ago. Without planning it, we both started wearing our glasses all day, everyday. We noticed and made jokes to each other how we're getting old. I found myself searching way too often for photos of Jenna Lyons and finally treated myself to thick black understated frames similar to hers. Now we find ourselves buying frames more than we're buying clothes. And if the man in your life hates them, well you know they are perfect.
