Whenever I go on a trip, it’s only custom that I fit in time to take some outfit pics, while experiencing each city’s distinctive spots. I’ve been to Montreal a million times, as I was born here, but have never truly experienced the Old Port, or Vieux Port, en Français.

An area that brings the beauty of Montreal’s history, it’s French roots, as well as modernity. It’s almost like the Soho of Montreal: old style yet avant-garde. And obviously the day I decided to visit was a rainy one, but that’s okay, because I went equipped avec mon parapluie (my umbrella)!

Some of the best hidden gems of Montreal’s fashion identity can actually be found in Old MTL. I found myself walking past a boutique I had only heard about, and was instantly drawn inside by a glimpse at the wall of Céline bags I saw inside (sorry, no pics to share) 😥 The shop, Cahier D’Excercices was a distinct space. Especially seeing it in Canada, where trying to find such bags, as well as some of the couture they carried, is so uncommon!

I also stopped in at one of my fav boutiques, which happens to be an online-only store, with an undisclosed, physical location in the area: SSENSE. I tempted myself by checking out a Givenchy Pandora and some Balenciaga Arena high-tops, now both on my wish list #shit. But it’s always nice to appreciate fashion, especially in boutiques that we don’t have in T.O.!

And I think for the day my outfit was pretty casual, yet had hints of style. In basic faded 7 jeans, a nylon crossbody & coated canvas sneakers, as well as my funky Adidas jacket, I think this was perfect for walking around on the wet cobblestone streets. Don’t forget my naked Miley top (#killer), Hermès belt (#classic), and the best part: my brand-less umbrella (#quiche). I’m #cute.

I totally love the urban & fashion forward vibe I get when trotting around Montreal. Besides obvious tourists, or the average person who lives there, Montreal is a super hip, fashion-forward city. MTL may not be as edgy as Toronto, but definitely blends classic style with European flair. Too bad I didn’t get a poutine while I was there.
