MISS/LOVE/EXCITED #2

HELLO Ladies & Gents!

For the ones who have been following me for a while you might remember my first Miss/Love/Excited post. If not click here.

This was meant to be a series. I know, I know. Words.

HOWEVER, I aim to bring the series back – so here it is!

I miss going to many fashion/design events as I used to do back in September. I gave priority to my other activities this winter and mainly university. I hope I will have the opportunity to go back to these events soon.

Those of you who live/know Paris, are you aware of some nice upcoming activities?

Many many many of you may know this by now. I got some Stan Smith sneakers for my birthday back in October and I have been absolutely loving them. They are super comfortable, go with everything and they always give a casual touch yet sophisticated thanks to the Midas touch (got it? Gold 😉 – so P&F). Follow me around and see more snaps of my own Stan Smith here!

Suits for All

>>While you read (click)<< 

I don’t usually post picture of myself neither OOTDs (maybe I’ll start that soon – let me know if that would be of any interest for you).
But my staples are a good pair of jeans, nice flats/sneakers and some kind of blazer (polished, oversized, boyish – according to mood 😉 ).

However I love a good suit. Wether it’s mismatched or regular – for any occasion, really! I love wearing them and I love seeing other people wearing them (men and women) because come on, the gents look damn hot in those and we just look gorg and sophisticated.

I have been wearing them a lot and also pinning like crazy anything suit related. That’s why I decided to write this post. I decided to share with you 3 ways that I would wear a suit and the versions that could suit (see what I did there?) men for a sexy yet classy look for different occasions. I am no fashion expert, that is only the way I would personally style this beautiful ensemble.

#1 The Polished Look

#1* By IamGalla.com (#mancrush) and lacooletchich.tumblr.com

When I’m referring to this polished look, I’m referring to all business-y occasions and some formal parties. I would say this look calls for a tie, a single color, and a good cut. We are looking for the very sharp look here.
Then according to the context, you can play around with the materials of the suit and accessories.

#2 The Daily Look

*#2 By homme-models and matchbookmag.tumblr

I would wear something like this for a special occasion but not too formal, a fancy brunch for example, a date. It is also appropriate as a work outfit in many industries among other occasions. For this look I would play with colors, maybe mismatch the blazer and pants, and maybe switch the button down shirt for a blouse or a nice sweater. For men I would definitely skip the tie, and for the ladies I would pair this with some more casual yet fancy flats, like oxfords or loafers.

#3 The Casual Look

*#3 By sty.lk and elle.com

Well, for this everyday look it is basically about playing the effortless card. Go for a baggy blazer, sneakers, your call – as long as it shows off your personality it’s all good.

I hope you liked this post and that it was interesting. Let me know if you’d like more of these.

#SMART –> Soia & Kyo

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and you liked my previous #SMART post where I praised Whistles marketing on their website.

Today I wanted to share Sia & Kyo creativity on their last fashion show during the World Master Card Fashion Week #WMCFW that took place in Canada from October 20th until Octber 25th.

I personaly did not know Sia & Kyo very well but they have some amazing outerwear collections that I highly suggest you to check out.

(PS: Personally not a fan of the music but the rest is flaw-less)

You may not know this about me but I am a big fan of theatre and I love to stage things, whether it is a play , a dance routine or just day dreaming. As I also love fashion very very much, I love for example the Victoria Secret’s fashion show because they do combine a little bit of staging, acting games and fashion. So everytime I watch a fashion show I always think about ways I could stage it, invent a whole story around a single collection make the models interract with eachother etc. I hope I will get the opportunity of doing such a thing one day!

Meanwhile, I praise creativity in fashion shows. That’s basically the message I want to share.

PLUS as you know already, I love my “greenes”. SO, when I saw this fashion show that incorporated grass onto the runway. It was enough to make me want to see the whole show and the collection was truly beautiful. In fact, I think you do not need to add a lot of details in your fashion show. With this single element (+ the openning with the dog) you were already picturing spring out of the city which was exactly the designer’s intention. Love it.

Once again, if I may, congratulations Soia & Kyo.

Cheers,

The 1 Ingredient Recipe for Productivity

Procrastination. I think it affects every one of us one way or another.

But don’t worry! If you never read the article that I am about to share right now yet, keep calm and let me help you out.

A few months ago I found this amazing article on jamesclear.com that introduced me to a very simple rule to stop procrastinating during the less productive days.

Here it goes:

2mn rule

I highly recommend you jump onto this page and read it in more details because it is really good and worth your time 😉

LEVO League

I’ve started working about one year ago and discovered the LEVO LEAGUE website.

Oh Dear.

If you don’t know this website yet, let me introduce it to you quickly. It is basically a website that helps you “elevate yourself” and specifically career wise.

Everyday, there are new posts, advices and interviews of successful people (mostly ladies) that will help you for your work day and career projects.
The articles vary from things you should do at work to be more efficient, to what you can do to have a stronger voice at the office, or to the tips and tricks to have a personal/work life well balanced.

They also have job offers, insights on very interesting companies and organize worldwide networking events.

One of my favorite posts: http://www.levo.com/articles/lifestyle/make-the-most-of-your-20s

So far, I’ve used a lot the career website/blog to read cool articles about how to be a better worker. But it really works as a type of linkedin website as well. You can create a profile, apply to job offers, attend office hours, have mentoring etc.

I love how the articles are super well written and most of the time you can follow the main lines through bullet points which is perfect if you are in a hurry and want to get a first idea before going back reading it later.

It is absolutely divine. They also have a pinterest account that I HIGHLY recommend following. They have the most gorgeous pictures that will lead you to amazing articles from their website but also from other very interesting ones.

Sleeveless Blazer

By estendencia.es

By estendencia.es

You may not know this about me but I am a real blazer lady.

I love my blazers for any occasions. When I want to dress up they are almost a must to me, but when I want to be more casual and throw one some jeans, sneakers and a cute top, I love topping everything up with a cool blazer to add structure.

In fact, I am not the most curvy girl on Earth so when I opt for more slouchy look, I sometimes feel some lack of structure in the whole outfit. Is there anyone in the same case? So this item is a must for me for these situations. haha

Now what about summer time? One still need to add structure to the lazy summer outfits but those long sleeves are just too warm then! 😉 SO THAT IS WHEN I UNDERSTOOD WHAT THESE SLEEVELESS BLAZERS WERE FOR.

Yes, until I realized this, I was just very sceptical about this not so new trend. But it is actually genius! Look how great it looks! Once again, you cand ress it up or down, and you will still feel light and fresh.
