New finds Zara/Mango/H&M

A special article on my latest picks in Zara, Mango and H&M!

I didn’t buy anything but I couldn’t help taking pictures to show you the cool newest arrivals in my favorite stores…

I am hungry of khaki colors, greys, blacks, jumpsuits and blues… And so much more.

Sexy blue…

This is an outfit for work darlings. I wanted it fun, meaning not too severe but still professional. If you can look elegant and sexy on top of that why not? As long as you don’t show too much skin… I have a hard time putting away my blue Goyard bag lately, probably because it feels like spring is coming!

Angels can fly…

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?)

Pink and black… overdone??

Today’s question: are pink and black outfits overdone? I agree that this combinaison is particularly fit to teenagers. Who hasn’t done it when they were 15? Black and pink only, usually black pants, shoes, cardigan, black eye make up and a pink t-shirt (let’s not forget the inner mystery and drama of our mood). It’s so punk in it’s is own fashionable way. So for this session, I wanted to re-use these two colors and make it work so that I don’t look like a 15 year old. Therefore, I mixed a new color with it: beige/grey or taupe. Three main colors with a fourth: dark green from the peacock pendant. Having 4 colors maximum will bring balance to the equation.

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.

Relax, it’s the weekend!

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.

Green velour jacket…

Okay so today I want to show you this slick and Balmain style jacket. It gives a relaxed and classy look. Wear it better with boots or low boots, and a pair of jeans. Oh and the bag, sports style with a big buckle, is a great match with this jacket. Navy blue and khaki green go so well together! The other detail I like in the low boots and the bag is the vanilla coloured very visible stiching. So lovely…
