Canadiana in Hungary

On our recent trip to Budapest, Hungary, we had a long day of sightseeing, followed by a relaxing river cruise. Given the extremely hot temperatures (I ended up getting heat stroke…), I needed a light outfit that could carry me all day and evening long. I elevated the obvious shorts, crop top, and sandals choice with…

Double Duty Cover-Up

  On our most recent getaway to Gozo (Malta’s smaller sister island), J and I had the pleasure of staying at the Kempinski Hotel. While the weather wasn’t quite warm enough to take a dip in the pool, the grounds were too pretty not to spend some time poolside. I picked up this swim suit…

Layering in Venice

Visiting Venice was a dream come true.I was completely in awe of the seemingly floating city, with the Venetian Gothic facades lining the winding canals. We happened to plan our trip to coincide with the city’s Carnival (completely coincidentally), and couldn’t have had better timing. Although the streets and squares were packed with people, the…

Flamingo Fur Stole

Although it rarely dips below a balmy 10 degrees celsius in Malta, we experienced our fair share of below-freezing temps when we were back home this past January. Keeping warm without looking like the Michelin Man is a hard feat to master. Luckily, right before flying back to the Mediterranean, I found this stunning fur stole,…

The Perfect Winter Coat

With our upcoming trip to Paris looming, I found myself without a winter coat (they’re all in storage back home), and soon to be in the city of Love in the midst of December. With chance of flurries forecasted, my search for a winter coat began back in Ukraine months ago. However, I quickly realized…

Powdered Blue Wrap Coat

With temperatures dropping drastically, I’ve been desperately searching for the perfect warm coat. Luckily, I found this wrap jacket, with an oversized lapel, that cinches at the waist, and in the softest powdered blue colour. It’s not warm enough for winter, but will last for the crisper Fall days we’ve been getting. Bathrobe-style pastel-coloured wool coats…

Postcard from Palazzo Parisio

Although I’m so very fond of Malta, I find it hard to discover places on the island (other than the stunning natural landscape) that I truly feel in awe of. But stepping foot into Palazzo Parisio, situated in the town of Naxxar, does just that. Now that I’ve been a few times I feel so at…

Tropical Tourist

Its easy to spot the typical tourist from miles away. They are most often the ones in khaki shorts, wearing a hat with an elastic chin band, and a tropical patterned shirt with a camera strapped around their neck. I can’t help but cringe slightly every time I see them. However, lately I’ve been leaning…

Postcard from Mdina

Mdina, also known as the Silent City, was once the ancient capital of Malta. With very few residents, you can walk the medieval walled city in virtual silence, especially when wandering through the deserted narrow side streets. Rabat, Mdina’s suburb city, is almost equally as enchanting. Visit it as well to see some incredible sights,…

Oriental Florals

Hooray for ankle weather! I’ve been searching for the perfect ankle-length printed pant for quite some time now, and I finally found them! The oriental-style fuchsia floral pattern on these particular trousers is unlike any others I’ve seen. As my love for magenta anything is well documented (here and here), these were an ideal addition…
