today we’re headed out to a pastel lover’s dream spot, in one of the most beautiful north american cities i’ve ever been to, montreal, in Quebec, canada. i even just love the name of this cozy spot — pastel rita just sounds fun, doesn’t it? it may be a tad frosty up here this time of year, but never fear, this lovely cafe serves both coffee and natural wines (or as they may say, “Café et bar à vin”), both of which will warm your blood right up. and there’s yummy food, too, so don’t you worry about that! i’d visit their beautiful instagram to have a sneak peek at their menu! we’re going to show up dressed somewhat like a wooly creamsicle in pastels of our very own — a creamy colored teddy coat, pale pink ribbed sweater, hat and scarf, and some extra soft cashmere pants paired with some comfy but stylish boots in case there’s snow! if looking for something to read as you sip your beverage of choice, i highly recommend Warlight By Michael Ondaatje, the prose is dreamy and the story is a can’t put down kinda tale. it takes place In 1945, just after World War II, when a brother and sister are left behind in London when their parents supposedly move to Singapore for work, leaving them in the care of a mysterious figure named The Moth. I loved every character and didn’t want it to end.

  1. I’ve wanted to visit Canada for such a long time and this definitely makes me want to even more!
    Love the pastel sunglasses and polish! I’ve been trying to find a similar polish to that for awhile!
    Have you read warlight? We read it for our book club, but none of us were very impressed. what was your opinion?

    • Thanks, Kellie!

      I really liked Warlight! But I think there was something in the story that resonated with me about my own family and some of the extreme privacy my mum held dear. She kept a lot of family history from us, and I found myself relating to the characters quite a bit. I did find it jumped around a bit, but I still really enjoyed it.
