Creamy Chameleon

Knit: H&M / Denim: Topshop / Boots: Aldo / Bags: Whistles

When it's not really freezing outside yet, I love to leave my coat at home and just wear a big jumper instead - this one is a really all rounder:

I've been taking my favourite knit out on the street very often lately and instead of wearing gloves, I just hide my hands in the maxi sized sleeves - as the thick turtle neck is super warm, too, I don't need a scarf either - that's what I call multifunctional clothing.

Le coup de foudre

Skirt: 27 Quai de Seine

As I have developed a serious "goût" for midi skirts, my crush for this little beauty above is probably not surprising - especially as I also love asymmetric cuts and original textures. Can't wait to take my new leather/suede (ish) skirt on la rue!

Hat over Heels

Hat: UO / Jumper: COS / Denim: Cheap Monday / Wedges: Zara

Ever since Hedi Slimane made his Saint Laurent models wear broad fedora hats and heels on the cat walk in 2012, I am obsessed with this look. A couple of years later, it still works perfectly for a casual-chic and urban look that doesn't need much more than a few (preferably dark coloured) basics.

The game changer

Sweater & Skirt: Mango / Booties: Aldo / Bag: Whistles

At this time of the year I usually love wearing a pair of trousers and a chunky knit. However, a dress or a skirt can be a real game changer once I have enough of my usual autumn uniform. This straight midi skirt is one of my current favourites - I love to combine it with both casual knits or sweaters and more chic items like heels or a nice silk blouse

Candy Shopping with Equipment

Dust Coat & Denim: H&M / Silk Blouse: Equipment
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs / Shoes: Mango / Necklace: Pascale Monvoisin

In my opinion there is no better label than the French label Equipment when it comes to silk blouses. Most of their shirts like the one I'm wearing are made of washed silk that feels great on your skin. Another great investment piece that can be worn to various occasions and which goes with both casual and chic looks. 

.. and once you get your hands on one of these shirts, the rest is simple: button down (variable, but as per - the lower, the better if you wanna add the certain "je-ne-sais-quoi"), add a piece of jewellery and a pair of comfy denim trousers or a leather skirt - et voilà!

London Look

Coat & Wedge Booties: Zara / Jumper: & Other Stories / Denim: Cheap Monday 

Earlier this week I jumped on a Eurostar to London where I was greeted by the loveliest weather including a very blue sky and spring-like temperatures. My dear friend Yev was so kind to take some pictures of my outfit on the streets of London. I have already declared my love for & Other Stories and this merino wool jumper doesn't fail to disappoint either. Definitely one of my favourite outfits that fits both the streets of the English and French capital.

(Cheap) Monday Post & Other Stories

Silk Blouse: & Other Stories / Jeans: Cheap Monday / Booties: Aldo / Bag: Michael Kors

I'm a huge fan of silk blouses, especially if they have a pretty v-neck like this one from & Other Stories. The slightly edgy pieces of the Swedish label just never fail to disappoint and they always add the certain "je-ne-sais-quoi".

Autumn Essentials

Hat: UP / Knit: & Other Stories / Clutch: Vintage / Booties: Aldo

The days are getting colder but I am happy that I can rely on my fall must-haves. My hat from Urban Outfitters already accompanies me through Paris for several weeks now and is the best weapon against every bad hair day and rainy days. The chunky knit from & Other Stories is super comfy because of its blend of wool and cotton and one of my clear favourites. 
Happy fall dressing!

Shades of Blue

Shirt: Zara / Denim: Urban Outfitters / Boots: Office / Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs

As I already mentioned in my previous post, we got super lucky with the weather in Paris on the weekend so I opted for a loose striped shirt and a pair of skinny blue jeans.

Eternal Summer

 Shirt: Mango / Denim: H&M / Sunnies: Zara / Flats: Mango / Bag: Whistles

I can't tell you how happy I am about le retour of the Parisian summer! Didn't even dare to imagine that in October, I would be able to stroll around Montmartre wearing nothing more than a top and a pair of sunnies.
