I have never been good in describing my own style, but what I know for sure is the fact that I always have tried to play with fashion and not follow any rules, except for the ones that I created for myself.
Fashion, for me, is all about having fun with colors, textures and layering… and not about following trends or sociably-accepted-rules. I truly believe that what makes you feel comfortable makes you look good.
And by comfortable, I mean comfy for your body and soul. Something comfortable is an outfit that you’re proud to wear, that makes you happy, excited, relaxed or confident. It’s a look that doesn’t hurt your body or makes you unable to walk to stand-up straight.
Comfort transcends your inner self when you embrace it and that’s what makes a look beautiful.
I think you can wear the prettiest dress on Earth and still look horrible if it’s not comfortable… as it will be apparent through how it makes you feel on the inside.
Fashion is more than a visual statement to me. It’s a reflection of my everyday mood, of how I feel today, right now.
That’s why I have such difficulty in describing my style in general… as it constantly changes on a day to day basis.
As for this very outfit, it was created for the #TANALOVESSHOES project, in order to showcase my new little white sneakers, which I've told you about HERE.
Everything in this outfit is vintage (except for the shoes) and I I was excited to find this white blouse that has excatly the same little flower patterns as the sneakers... Those are the kind of details I enjoy playing with and that make me excited about my look!

Marie-Ève and I have been friends for more than five years now and the more the years past, the closer we've become.
I am proud to say she's one of the most inspiring person I know, one of the funniest and clever, and definitely one of the most stylish women in this entire city.
What's even more amazing about her is the fact that she's now my neighbor, as she recently moved to her new apartment, which is literally 5 minutes away from mine. I don't need to elaborate much on this for you to understand that we're about to spend the vast majority of our weekends together, acting like bloggers and streetstylers! (We fully embrace our silliness and there's no shame in taking pictures all-day-all-night-every-day-all-the-time - it's a commune passion we share!)
So today is Sunday and I thought it would be a good opportunity to do a little Sunday Streetstyle article. This time, it's not only about Marie-Ève's outfit, but all about our day spent together in our beloved neighborhood, aka the VerdunLuv.
Since Marie just moved in, I decided to share with her my favorite nearby places. We started by going to my favorite brunch spot: BAGEL ST-LO. (If ever you have the chance to go, you have to try the eggs benedict!)
We also stopped at my favorite vintage boutique: MONTRÉAL GLANEUR. Every time I enter this tiny shop, I buy something - because everything is beautiful, antique, original and at very good prices. As you know about my love for vintage items, this is clearly heaven to me!
Finally, we wandered around in the nice alleys ways and took fun pictures! What a nice sunny day it was in GREAT company :)
If you didn't know already, I'm about to leave to Italy for one full month, aka 31 days!
This is VERY exciting and I cannot wait to be back in Europe once more!
After England and Spain, Italy will be the third time I visit the old continent and I know for sure it will be another great adventure!
The fun AND scary part of this trip is the fact that I'm going alone. It's actually the first long backpack trip I will be doing all by myself and just thinking of it makes me feel a lot of emotions!
I've been living by myself (fully alone - no parents, no roomates, no boyfriend) for the past two years so I know how to manage alone. However, being in another country, especially somewhere you've never been before, is quite different!
I'll try to keep you updated as much as I can via my facebook, instagram and snapchat (@naomilarocque). Make sure to follow to not miss anything ;)
