Priorité au français car aujourd’hui on parle NATIONAL, les enfants.
Si vous me suivez sur Instagram, vous avez déjà dû apercevoir ma petite vidéo de balade jazzy dans Paris. Ce weekend dans un élan de spontanéité j’ai pris mon petit sac et mon appareil photo et j’ai fais un petit tour de quartier à la découverte de nouveaux magasins, concepts, cafés, décorations et j’en passe.

Surprise du jour bonjour, je tombe sur l’Art du Basic, que je ne connaissais pas et LA – sous le charme. Total.

Je pense qu’il est inutile de revenir sur ma folie du minimalisme, le voyage à Copenhague qui a changé ma vie…On le sait tous maintenant. En tout cas, j’ai bien évidemment flashé sur ce magasin pour son look très clean, ses coupes nettes sans être trop classiques, des excellents tissus, et ce je ne sais pas quoi qui rend toute la collection mystérieuse avec une touche tomboy (tout moi donc 😉 ). Vraiment vraiment sympa! Bravo pour cette collection!

French brand featured on the blog today.
If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen a short video that I filmed while wandering around Paris last Sunday. I had an amazing – very spontaneous day, where I grabbed my bag and camera and started walking around and taking some snaps here and there, discovering new stores, concepts, coffee shops, decoration and so on.

One of my biggest surprise was stubling upon l’Art du Basic, that I did not know before and OH MAN – that was a lovely discovery.

I really think it’s useless to go back to my love for a good minimal look or to how much my trip to Copenhagen changed my life (well, almost!). In any case I absolutely loved that brand. It has wonderful clean cuts without beeing too classic, fine fabric, and that little something that adds some mystery to the collection with a hint of tomboy vibe (100% me 😉 ). Very very nice concept. Congratulations!

Hoje decidi falar-vos de uma marca francesa.
Se já me seguem no instagram, devem ter visto o pequeno vídeo que publiquei este Domingo em que estava a passear pelas ruas de Paris. Passei um dia muito giro e espontâneo, foi só pegar na carteira e na maquina e tirar fotos a todas as coisinhas giras que via como novas lojas, conceitos, cafés, decorações natalícias entre outros.

Uma das coisas que se destacou nessa tarde foi a descoberta da loja L’art du Basic que não conhecia de maneira alguma.

Penso que não é preciso voltarmos a falar da minha Paixão pelo estio minimalista e a que ponto a minha viajem a Copenhaga mudou a minha vida (ou quase!). Em todo o caso, adorei esta marca. Tem uns cortes que são de outro mundo, super simples sem serem demasiado clássicos, tecido espectacular, e um toque de algo especial que torna a colecção toda bastante misteriosa e um pouco tomboy (ou seja, 100% eu, certo? 😉 ). Um excelente trabalho. Parabéns!

 My personal faves:

I’m a huge lover of these deep V necks. So glamourous.  The off white dress has kind of the same vibe going, but in a more sutle way, easier for the daily basis and to brighten up the rainy days #whiteinwinter

robes

Regarding these last two, what can I say beside that I love how tomboyish these styles look. However the cuts keep the feminine aspect very present which make everything very lovely.

I never use the word swag. But look at that last pause. That is minimal/tomboy swag! Love it.

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

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

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

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.

Boxwood Decor :))

Today’s Song!

Hello everyone! As you may know from previous posts (here and there), I am redoing my bedroom. I already said this in previsou post, I am going to stick with the colors I had before which are white and ivory. I love those light and classic colors. They give so much light and I never get tired of these colors. Then I want to add a lot of flowers to give natural and bright touches (especially because spring is coming!). So speaking about flowers and all that jazz, I wanted to introduce you to another very special decor detail that I absolutely LOVE. Boxwood!

I currently live in an appartment but I have a lot of boxwood in my garden back where  lived before college. I can’t resist.. I need boxwood touches somewhere in my flat… I think I am going to ROCK those ideas! What do you think? 😀
