As I’m off to the Alps for the holidays, my photos won’t take place in typical Parisian streets anymore. Instead, you’ll find me on forest paths, in front of very old doors, in snowy fields (hopefully) and in other charming alpine landscapes. Quick explanation about this post: I’m looking on the floor to check whether my brand new flats are already covered with mud or not. And I’m also saying to myself
What more could I hope for than a rainy day to show you my brand new cape? (Ok, I did not need any paticular weather to do so, but what I did need was a good introduction sentence – and a connection to this post’s title). As I said many times, khaki is my favourite colour this season. And this item is so great it even has TWO shades of khaki.
As I am not wealthy enough (yet – Beyoncé, watch your back) to buy clothes every single day, I am used to creating new outfits with old items. This is also how I’ve built my own style, by mixing clothes with others again and again (sometimes it ends in a total fashion disaster, but I’ll be kind and won’t expose it). So here I go, turning less new into brand
… It is 8:30 in the morning and maybe 6 degrees outside. I am literally freezing for the good of these photos. I am asking you to be indulgent with my cold facial expressions. I have tried to layer up with as much clothes as possible (hence the dress AND cashmere jumper over it) to face today’s winter weather. And it is actually working. But to tell you the truth, I
As much as I am keen on staying in bed and watching movies all weekend – I reckon I’ve made myself pretty clear about that -, I also love walking around in the streets of Paris, and having lunch/brunch/coffee in my favourite places in the city (food, always). After introducing you to Les Chouettes, let me now take you to La Fourmi Ailée. A typical French restaurant decorated with shelves full
… I have been looking for these thigh high boots for ages until I finally find the perfect pair. It was almost as long and treacherous as my quest for the perfect coat. Right before giving up and spending another winter with very cold legs (I admit it would be less expensive to wear pants – but go figure), I found this black suedine pair. It’s exactly what I needed
Ok, so I have to tell you : before today, I was NOT a faux fur person. Not that I prefered real fur at all (understand me clearly), but I used to think I would look like a French version of Janice from Friends if I wore it. Less of the scrunchie and the annoying voice. But THEN, I virtually bumped into this furry beauty (Asos, I will never thank you enough).
Here is a short post to show you my last purchase : this incredibly warm and furry Monki co-ord. Not warm enough to stay more than five minutes with bare arms in the autumn cold though, but at least I know it now. This also explains posting only three pictures. I was about to turn as blue as my ensemble if I had stayed any longer. Ps : It DOES look
With such a cold weather outside (I’m talking so much about it I’m starting to think I’ve become English), I truly wish I could wear a duvet as a proper outfit. I know, only a few days ago I was proudly saying that winter would’nt get me to stop dressing up with short bottoms. But I guess 6 degrees in the morning made me change my mind. At least for today. Tomorrow,
Angéline and I went for a drink right after work the other day and discovered this lovely place. Les Chouettes is a café-restaurant located in Le Marais and is definitely worth stepping by (the hot chocolate made with real chocolate cream is one of the main reasons why). The white fences and whole design makes me think of the Titanic – or any kind of boat actually. The only thing
