Call Me Pocahontas




According to a few of my friends, if I had to be a Disney character, it would be Pocahontas. Seeing the pictures, I must admit I see the resemblance... especially with this Esprit outfit. The colors of my striped poncho and the suede leather of my beige boots do hint at the Native American. However, I wasn’t gearing up for a fancy costume party. It was rather the ideal look for this fresh windy but warm sunny summer day. So, this is an in-between weather outfit idea for you!

Trendiness Old-fashioned

Pictures by Inès Monnet



One perk of a blogger is to be regularly spoilt with new goodies. At the same time, I keep buying items I like. As you can imagine, I do own quite a big closet! The other day, I felt the urge to go through and reorganize my wardrobe. It took me quite a while, but was totally worth the effort. I rediscovered pieces I have totally forgotten about. So I thought: How can I wear them again and still look trendy? Here I go for the sport-casual style with gray tee tuck-in my "nostalgic" suit pants. As accessories, I choose this oversized hat and carry a blackish-blue shoulder bag (actually vintage like the ring I wear). A colorful scarf around my neck brings on an extra touch of sophistication. Except for the white sneakers, I own all the pieces (for quite a while) you see here. So do I look trendy or "old-fashioned"?

In Summer, Slip Into a Dress




When wearing shorts and tops gets boring, I slip into a dress. The feminine dress is a must-have piece in every girl‘s wardrobe. I actually own many designs: maxi, mid-length, printed, colorful or black. Each model fits a different occasion. For example, for a ball, I prefer a long elegant bustier to a sequin mini and skinny dress. On this sweltering day, I wanted something light and this long kaki floral print piece seemed just right. Its large cut feels airy. The design is special enough, so I did not need to add anything. I simply carried a bucket bag and put on embroidered heels.
