The little blue house: Hello! ready for the weekend???
Hello everyone! Hope you’re ready for a new week starting as we get closer and closer to Christmas…
The 50’s skirt: Hello everyone! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
I went to see the Pre-Impressionist exhibit at the De Young Museum last Sunday. It was fun going to SF for a day!
On a weekend and after a full week of work, there is one thing everybody craves for… chilling and relaxing for at least a day (if possible of course…). Well it is exquisite to not be on a schedule and wonder around from coffee place to little shop. Lately I have been dreaming of my home town… ah Paris! But I know it is quite cold over there still (snow in some parts of France), and I’m not a fan of that. I miss the ambiance, the craziness and the beauty of this city; it is impossible to get bored with it! There is always an exhibit, a play, a movie, an event, a concert, a beautiful day to go to the park, or, my favorite thing, go on a shopping excursion and end up in a Café with a patisserie… Mmmm.
I particularely love this sweater because my mom got it for me… 🙂 And because the wings are so cute and cool at the same time. We all wish we owned the real one! Flying away, going to heaven, never feeling pain… What a plan! So I decided to complement the wings with my butterfly earrings and a light fun pink flowery scarf. Being girly feels so good at times… (PS: did you know that this bright blue is the color of the Archangel Michael?)
I think the title is clear enough so let’s go for a ride in bag’s heaven!
First: Day bags…
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.
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.
