Bonjour! I know it’s been quite a long time since I last posted on the blog but as you can guess I had ton loads of things to do as I flew back from New York. I feel so good now that I’m in France surrounded by the people I love and finally able to get my life back on track.
I’ve always been a control freak and I constantly need to know what will be my next move so being done with school but on the hunt for a job was kind of a frustrating step for me but I’m thrilled to tell you that I finally found a position in the PR agency I wanted and started to work a few days ago! I didn’t mean to hide it from you any longer but it needed to be real before I can disclose this information with you (superstitious?). Anyway, I’m slowly realizing that I’m not a student anymore and that I’m finally experiencing independence which also makes me proud after all those years working my ass off at school. Now that a little context is given let’s move on to this first Parisian outfit!
I had forgotten how easy it is to take pictures in this 24/7 shooting studio called Paris! I basically headed 2 streets away from my apartment to join a friend on the Place de la Concorde which would be our spot of the day. Our pictures may not be the best quality but the city makes it all magical. I was wearing a fabric I usually stay away from: Tweed. However I had a major crush on this set by The Kooples for the length of the jacket that prevents from a conservative look thanks to its slightly oversize cut almost hiding the mini skirt. I’m having a thing for sets at the moment and my advice to keep it cool is to go for unexpected cut/fabric/color/proportions. Also, to make sure I don’t look like a failed Halloween version of the Queen of England I put on a revealing bodysuit perfect to enhance my kinda flat chest!
Finally let’s talk about my favorite part: the boots! If thigh hight boots had a moment last year, knee high boots are now taking over, blowing a 70’s wind on the fashion sphere. I got mine in a thrift shop in pristine condition while I was in New York City (now I understand why I had a « heavy » tag on my suitcase in the airport!). I was afraid all those horizontal lines would make me look like I’m wearing my Mom’s clothes but the silhouette surprisingly remains elegant and dynamic and can even be worn at night! I really hope you guys enjoyed my post, I’ll do my best to stay active here as much as possible even though I don’t have my new pace figured out yet. However, you can follow me on Instagram for daily pictures with my outfits, beauty stuff, life in Paris, etc. Bisous.
