Another pink alternative…

Here I am with another alternative to a pink type outfit. I had, in my closet, this pinkish, violet long sleeve blouse that I adore. It’s silk therefore very soft, comfortable and it flows really well. It’s great under a blazer. I don’t know why, but since I come from Paris, every time the sun is out I feel like bright colors and fun patterns! It’s very very cold and rainy back home at this time of the years so I want to enjoy this wonderful californian weather! Anyhow, This bouse is fantastic also because the pattern is rich of suddlety with magenta, violet, purple and green mixed together. It is like a prairie of flowers putting me in a joyful mood right away.

So chic for a chic work day

As you might have noticed, I adore navy blue. To me it is a very dignified color and I can’t wear enough of it (it’s been this way for years… lol). Lately, and probaly because I live in California now (however I guess it’s like this throughout the US) I have been shopping in Thrift Stores. It is a concept that isn’t really developped in France as much. Why? No idea! But when I find cool pieces like these Escada Couture Pants for 3 dollars at my size (pure beautiful silk) I just want to go back.

Navy blue day

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.

Kiss me baby!

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.

I’m going out!

Here is an outfit, not too fancy looking, that would work for going out in the day or night time. What I really like is the H&M jeans, a sort of whashed grey fabric, easily put together with other pieces. The jacket is simple but classy, with a vintage touch with big black shiny buttons and big pockets. Oh and I alsmost forgot to talk about the most awesome Bottega Veneta style bag… The woven pattern, between the two types of leather give a wonderful sparkling touch!! And of course, the low boots, found in H&M, are just as sober looking with the stylish detail of the golden zipper. Hope you like it!!!
