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.

Do you like the Sailor trend???

It’s been rainy lately so I finally had to take out my sailor sweater! What a great pattern! I love it especially when the stripes are thin. Can you name two designers that really love the sailor stripes? Maybe Jean Paul Gaultier and… Coco Chanel yes miss! She did at her beginning of her carrier. She dared to wear those sweaters as a revolt to the actual trends and rules at the time. It has a masculine connotation because only sailors would wear these but you can easily make it look more feminine. Juts add heels, a belt at the waist, maybe a small scarf and a cute bag! Oh and I purposely played with the béret here. A béret will keep your head warm and protected as well as bring a cute and fun touch. I also wanted to talk about the wool coat I am wearing. I absolutely love this coat.

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!!!
