This is a cool sleeveless cardigan, the kind that will turn a chic piece into a casual outfit. Casual chic is definitely what I prefer… the high waisted pants (they are not leather by the way) plus the silk blouse give off an elegant attitude. And as you probably noticed, I am a big fan of navy blue matching with black and a lighter but still neutral tint like grey. The contrast falls also in the chic “department” always. Furthermore my legs look really and that is to thank the same color and kind of texture running from my legs to the point of my toes : black pants + black high heeled shoes! And please notice again the 4 color code is still applying here : black, navy blue, light grey and… a little blue scarf!
Yes… I feel very comfortable in this outfit. You could think that the day is a Sunday and you are right. But why would a Sunday look like I ran all day in my joggings?? No no no, I want to be comfy with taste and harmony maybe because I’m french!! lol just kidding. So the key for the harmony is the matching shades of colors; greys and browns on one side; black and blues on the other. Remember: brown and navy blue ALWAYS go together. You can add black and white to the mix and it works! The details I want to talk about here is: first the flowery scarf and pendant that give a fun and feminine touch; secondly the black leather mitaine gloves.
On a windy day like this one, I felt like wearing a skirt. It doesn’t make much sense because it already had rained on top of being windy… but what do you want? I like to go with the flow. Thank God it isn’t cold here in northern California. What so ever, I was inspired by very nude and pastel colors. This beautiful lamb leather beige jacket was bought on sale (incredible my size was still available) and I LOVE it.
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.
