Leather pants

  When I decided to move to England, I first thought my daily life would be filled with tea times and biscuits. But after a week accross the sea, I realised cupcakes would be a big part of it too. In one week time, I have already established my headquarters in this too-English-to-be-true Primrose bakery. The waitress doesn’t know my name yet, but I can assure you she will by

Paris s’éveille

  The sun was slowly rising when Angéline and I shot these photos in the streets of Paris this morning. And it made me think of a great vintage song I’m sharing with you today. Mr Jacques Dutronc’s « Il est cinq heures Paris s’éveille » (« It’s 5am, Paris awakens » for those of you who don’t feel comfortable with using Google Translate). He’s a great artist – and also used to be Françoise

Chalet life

  For these last days of holidays I decided to shoot in an authentic alpine place: Hubert’s chalet. In case you thought it only existed in cheesy holiday movies, people actually do live in these 100% wooden houses (well, in slightly bigger ones than this one). And it is so comfortable & cosy I would bring one in spare parts back to Paris if I could (and had more than

Weekend favourites

  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

Camel & denim

  I am truly glad for tomorrow’s day off as I want to do nothing but stay in bed and watch series’. Made in Chelsea or The Mindy Project? I might just go for both… Served with milk and cookies obviously. What a thrilling Tuesday ahead! … One more thing : Camel + grey + denim = the perfect outfit equation. … Have a bearable Monday everyone! Photos: Candice L. Outfit

Left side – again

  I’m looking to my left, once more. In case anyone worries about my ability to turn my head the other way: do not anymore, my neck is working perfectly. It is all about photogenic. A bigger looking nose and eyelid on the other side of my face are to blame. (And “stupid” is the word you’re looking for). Anyway, it always seems like something wonderful is happening on the

Lace details

  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,

The Perfect Oversized Coat (in my opinion, obviously)

  Those of you who have read my second post on this blog will understand when I say I FINALLY FOUND IT (others, follow the link). As planned, I gave up on the colourful and fashionable coats idea and went for a grey oversized one. Classic me. Daring myself to change for once and try new exciting trends, and ending up with a basic – yet gorgeous – item. Well, I didn’t
