Napa II

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Here are the last pictures from my Napa Valley trip… The place was gorgeous. Anyhow, I bought new Chanel’s nail polish : nouvelle vague, which is Tiffany’s color turquoise and I absolutely love it. I hesitated with an orange tone, fresh and summery too, but this blue was… More

Friday off!

I bet a lot of you are looking forward to Good Friday! Hope you are planning for a little “weekend escape” and have a good time! A bit of freedom, a bit of family and friends, a bit of sun, a bit of money to spend on good food and good chocolate, and here you… More

You can’t wear enough!

You can’t wear enough… trenchcoats! A definite spring buy! chic for every occasion. I already did an article about trenchcoats but I wanted to share about another outfit! I also wanted to show the coolest heels again… from H&M. I am in love with them. This new scarf (from the same brand ;-)) is so versatile that I feel like putting it on everyday… Have a great weekend darlings!!

A little promenade

Here I come again with my sailor shirt. It was the perfect thing to wear for a nice little walk, in a cute neighborhood, on a Sunday afternoon! I still wore I blazer which is more dressy but that’s just because I like to mix casual (like these ripped jeans from Abercrombie and Fitch) and chic. I am wearing a thicker belt here because the sweater is a little too long otherwise. I would have not put the belt if I had worn leggings for example. Let’s talk about the jeans now. Ripped, but not only… I folded the bottom in a way so that they rest right above my ankles. I believe this rule should be applied for any “boyfriend” type of jeans just because after studying the question, I came up with this distance as looking the best for pretty much anyone… lol.

My lovely trenchcoat!

A trenchcoat! Who doesn’t own a trenchcoat? It is a classical piece of clothing, a must-have all year long. When the cut is right, the fabric lean, and the color flattering, a trench can really make an outfit outstand with elegance. However be careful that it doesn’t go under your knees when you wear it… it will make you look shorter that what you are. I also make it a point to pick one that has cool buttons. They show a pattern, a structure, they are almost like a garnment so they need attention. Choose the buttons with a cool texture or color, and not oversized neither too small. I’ve owned a couple trenchecoats since I was 15 and I’ve always chosen them either grey or beige. Black is a good pick too, a safe choice.

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!!!
