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!

Funny Socks, Ladies and Gentlemen? A Yes For Me.

Hello dear Ladies and Sirs,

I wanted to write a quick post to share a trend that I really like as it shows some personality with a touch of fun.

I am referring to funny/patterned socks peaking out of one’s outfits. I think it works wonders wether it is worn by men or women (plus it is an excellent conversation starter 😉 ).

The only thing is that I like the designs and colors to be pretty subtle hence some difficulty to browse on the internet looking for the perfect pics to share here. Happy Socks have some very nice models – and I highly recommend checking out their website.

I decided to share some of the patterns that I like the most – let me know which one is your favorite and which other ones would you wear!

I think they look super cute with a smart outfit such a suit for men or casual smart – such as some nice pants and a blazer. Same for women. I also think one can rock them in a very casual day with rolled up jeans and a cute sweater. All very discreet to make your socks the focus of the whole look.

Plus guess what? You can wear matching socks with your loved ones. Cheesy? Don’t care. Love.

Cheers everybody!

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.

Shirtdress Fan Talking

Just a quick post to share with you my LOVE for shirtdresses.

I am a huge fan of the effortless/tom boy but yet chic look. And when I’m looking for the effortless look and the weather enables me to show out my legs, shirtdress are my go to (along with short suits #ohdear)

What I love about a good shirtdress is that it is also very versatile.

❖ Feeling (very) Casual Chic ❖

Hi guys!

Today I wanted to write a quick inspiring fashion post.

After that huge flow of statement necklaces, sequins, faux leather style etc. I’ve been in a very chilling mood. Lately I’ve been feeling like -» Leggings, nice shirt, my sneaker, a messy hair, a nice make up and I’M READY TO GO!

So here go some very cute outfits and ideas of style that I found very inspiring. Who said you could not be chic while super comfy and casual? 😉

I need to buy a pair of white converse! I think they are just so so cute. Love that first look, I think it is perfect for spring, such gentle color but super nice and still warm textures. Regarding the second style, I am also crazy about it. How easy is that classy look – a pair of jeans, a nice top. Put a blazer on it and spice the whole thing with a pair of all stars! SO CUTE.

Staying with the casual footwear, as you may remember from this post, I absolutely love New Balance sneakers, I actually own a pair and they are so so comfortable. Love that look! So cool – kind of fresh for the weather were I live though.. But nice idea for warmer days! haha

POLO DRESS GUYS! OMG, I spotted a very cute one this week end, and I think I am going back to the store and buy it because it is so cute. And while we are talking about casual outfits… Well, one morning I wake up and feel lazy to pick an outfit…. You got it, right? 😉
The one I want to buy is actually ivory, and I think I’l turn it super fun with a pair of bright and funky flats. Because I want to look fun like that!

I hope you guys liked those ideas, and that they will inspire you!

Have a nice day!

XOXO,

P&F
