Hello Babes! Here is gonna be my last New Yorker outfit (for this time) since it’s finally almost time for me to fly back home in France. And what a better place than Soho to shoot in? If you have never been to New York this is basically the equivalent of Le Marais in Paris, in other words a hype area with art galleries and stylish people who eat kale salad and drink Matcha latte!
I’ve been thinking about compiling all the spots I’ve been to in a blog post but you might know that my stay hasn’t been the best experience ever and I’d rather not dig back into it even though I plan to do an Instagram direct before I leave to answer all your questions. Also, I now definitely don’t see myself as a globe trotter or anything close to an adventurer and I think in life it’s ok sometimes to stick to what you are and what you like. I guess you guys haven’t been following me for my travel advice in a first place (otherwise you’re missing people who are way more talented than me on that matter) but hopefully more for my style and take on fashion so let’s enjoy this outfit together.
To celebrate the start of fall which to me is the most fashionable season of the year I decided to tackle the silky trend which you’ll see pretty much everywhere. I featured this kimono earlier on my Instagram account and that’s definitely one of the most special pieces of my closet since it’s a gift from Eliott who had it hand-made for me with the best silk while he was in China! Its gold gleam on terracotta color added to the lightness of the fabric made it super easy to shoot and those pictures are some of my favorites ever. Kimonos have been around for such a long time now that I feel like we can consider them as wardrobe staple and I personally have a clear preference for long ones with high slits on the sides to give your walk a dramatic look.
Silk/satin clothes can tend to make you look like you’re heading to you cousin’s wedding so don’t hesitate to dress it down with more sturdy and casual pieces like I did here: Light wash Mom jeans + captain hat. Talking about the captain hat it’s another statement piece that already took over the social media sphere (particularly nailed by the blogger Camila Coelho) and immediately makes you look put together even though you have oily hair and are only wearing a white t-shirt with a pair of jeans (well, that’s what I’m wearing every day minus the hair situation of course).
I hope you guys enjoyed this last New Yorker post and that you’re as excited as I am for my upcoming Parisian life! Once again you’ll find below a selection of different price range pieces to replicate the look and make it yours, thank you so much for your encouraging feedbacks on that matter by the way, I’m glad you appreciate this more creative layout! Bisous.
