A weekend in Californnia, even in the middle of January, gives the possibility to wear a pair of jeans shorts. Yes it is not too cold but I still prefered to match it with a big and thick cardigan. I love everything about this outfit: the scarf, the bag, the shoes (still with heels), the shorts of course, and the dentelle mitaine gloves! Another pair of mitaine that I keep for cool occasions. The shorts are quite nice and I bought them partially because of the studds.
Yes… I feel very comfortable in this outfit. You could think that the day is a Sunday and you are right. But why would a Sunday look like I ran all day in my joggings?? No no no, I want to be comfy with taste and harmony maybe because I’m french!! lol just kidding. So the key for the harmony is the matching shades of colors; greys and browns on one side; black and blues on the other. Remember: brown and navy blue ALWAYS go together. You can add black and white to the mix and it works! The details I want to talk about here is: first the flowery scarf and pendant that give a fun and feminine touch; secondly the black leather mitaine gloves.
Hi everyone! For this session, I was again inspired by a blazer… lol Yes blazers are too cool. So this one is a Massimo Dutti (Italian brand owned by Inditex, or Zara if you prefer), it is tighter around the waist which shows the curve of the body. Just so nice! I also like the quality of the fabric used: it is inprinted by very thin grey lines if you pay attention on one of the pics. I know it wouldn’t strike you otherwise but I can affirm that the result is brighter, shinier, more attractive in fact that a regular, boring fabric. So! remember when I was telling you about the “black and white” effect… well here it is ! with navy blue but it still works real well.
I love this sleeveless linen blazer… You can wear it for work or just to inspire a more confident attitude. The truth is that blazers today are so versatile that you can wear them with pretty much anything you like (except for joggings… but once again jogging outfits should only be worn for sports… but who would wear them for anything else really???). So you know you can abuse them, wear them over and over, no matter the color you pick; the most important is the way it fits you. If the vest doesn’t suit your body you’d better forget it! because you soon will look like a weird cow. The good news is that you can find a nicely cut vest for an affordable price… if you look well.
Today I felt like blue. I really love blue when I combine it with grey, like this beautiful grey leather jacket from Zara… Ha Zara!… I love that brand. Anyway, the peacock scarf also comes from that store: what do you want?!! They copy designers for a lot cheaper and when I was back home in Paris, I used to go to a Zara store about 3 times a week because they constantly have new pieces. So yeah, I also want to talk about the navy blue t-shirt.
This is my first article about fashion, or at least about my passion and love for it… It happened that today, despite the current month here in northern California, the weather was quite nice, and I mean the kind of nice that you find in Paris only in May maybe. So I was real excited to be able to dress lightly with my brand new H&M sweater that is just gorgeous!! just look at these sparkling shoulders! just too cute.
