denim shorts & white tee: #outfitperfection

Denim shorts & white t-shirt

#denim shorts love I photographed several girls in denim shorts and swimwear for the People from the Sea series while I was in Bali included Katia below and I had such a good feeling with her that we ended up shooting twice together. Below are a few images of our second photoshoot in Canggu. One look that I absolutely love on holidays, if not, the only one is the combo of denim shorts & white t-shirt. Simple, basic, effortless…ga ood old pair of denim shorts is debasically all you need on holidays…ok that and maybe a nice boho dress like this one from Rachel Zoe currently 70 % OFF and this dreamy Stella McCartney maxi dress. Granted it really depends on where you’re are off to for your holidays but for a laid-back place like Bali, frankly you really don’t need to pack much. It’s hot there. Even when it rains, it’s hot and I lived in my two pairs of denim shorts during our whole vacations updating my outfits with light cotton tops like this one from Numero …

5 Things I want right now! this Popeline blouse & Chloé bag

5 things I want right now!

My friends and I were discussing Chloé bag over the weekend…. One of them was obsessed with the Faye bag. You may have seen the brown version on Lucy Williams’ arm from Fashion me Now. It’s a nice Chloé bag, but personally, I prefer the more boho versions like the Marcie shoulder bag, the Hudson bag with its swishy tassel or even better the Marcie tote (featured above). Since I’m off to Barcelona next week for two days for the launch of a printing product which is going to be very interesting for interior designers and creative people like you, this week’s look is about looking stylish and fashionably sexy in town. So here are the few things I’m obsessed with this week. I’m totally in love with this ruffle poplin blouse (2) I spotted on Happily Grey. The blouse is available at Nordstrom and would look fantastic with these boyfriend jeans or these slim-fit biker trousers. I also love this tie-neck blouse from Mango which is more affordable, different style but it looks great too. This winter coat (1) caught my eyes too but if it’s out of your budget, check out this one under …

Denim & Stan Smith

Mila told me that next year, they are not allowed to wear ripped denim in College. Good job I’m not going back to school in September. Ripped boyfriend jeans and Stan Smith are kind of my uniform these days…

Denim on denim can look a bit blah…Add a black blazer or tuxedo to define your figure like Elodie and there you go!

5 Things I Want Right Now!

I love wearing denim in Summer but today’s look is obviously influenced by my week in Portugal and the beautiful beaches from Grândola. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can follow my visual diary on Instagram. Have a great weekend!

5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW!

Don’t you love it when your mum can teach your children something she taught you as a child? Mila started to learn how to sew with my mum and has been talking about it non stop and I know she is in good hands. Our great-grand mother Elodie was a modeliste and taught my grand-mother to sew and knit from an early age. She then passed on these skills to her four daughters and us, her grand-daughters, at least for sewing. I never managed to knit anything properly but Elodie is having another go… Last night, we watched “Couture, The New queens of Haute”, a very interesting documentary featuring

Denim power

I tried to take pictures of Mila’s outfit this morning before going to school… I got 10 seconds of stillness and then, she went off running with Lucas, jumping on the trampoline. True to be told, she is on the trampoline ALL THE TIME and I think if you have the space, it’s the best thing to keep the kids active rather than having them glued to their iPad! In addition, her dad built her a mini-Accrobranche so she is constantly doing a circuit from the trampoline to the tree house, hanging on the trapeze, pulling herself from the strength of her arms to the top of the rope and jumping back on the trampoline (last night she was training to be a Spy!)
