I spotted this fabulous pencil leather skirt (5) and this new shearling-lined leather jacket (1) before flying to Barcelona and thought they would be perfect for a winter look.
Yesterday temperatures (36 degrees in the sun) reminded me that the bikini season is upon us so here are 5 Summer essentials for you (you will thank me later!)…
Have you grabbed some serious bargains in the sale? I got a pair of boyfriend jeans and a pair of black sequin leggings for 5 euros each. It wasn’t planned but it certainly made my day! Since a good quality winter coat can be expensive, sale are a great time to grab a beautiful one from your favourite designer for a third of the price so I’ve rounded up 12 beautiful winter coats to get in the sale and some are up to 60% OFF. Enjoy!
And just like this, we are ending the first month of 2016, isn’t this crazy! I’m still working on my three lists but this week I have pinned down my top three priorities which felt great and since I have been working out just after Christmas, I can start seeing results on my upper body. How is going for you? I’ve also added a new category: “Personal” on the blog to keep together the most personal posts on motherhood, weight issues. grief, etc…but Friday is fashion day post so let’s have fun with today’s look
Have you seen Hush‘s latest video showing their AW15 collection? It’s looking beautiful! I’ve spotted a few pieces including a pair of burgundy leather trousers, a leather jacket and cropped denim that look right up my street. They’ve also added an extra 10% OFF to their Summer sale with the code EXTRA10. Check it out, there is some good bargains to grab including this Kaftan dress I wore here
The weather has been amazing since I arrived in France but work and renovations projects have kept me inside the house. Nonetheless, I find it amazing to wake up in the morning, open the French doors to view the garden and have breakfast on our new deck. Here is my wish-list for this week, full of pretty things. Have a fab weekend! 1/ This gorgeous bag from Sophie Hulme, also available in black and burgundy (check how gorgeous it looks!) 2/ This lovely Daisy dress from Hush 3/ these aviator style sunglasses by Isabel Marant 4/ these pretty Hammamas towels to hit the beach 5/ and these leather sandals PS: Check out the sale at Elias & Grace, they have some amazing things for kids and our beautiful Nomad embroidered pouffes and souk cushions are back in stock! SHOP THE POST:
Do you remember the two dresses I fell in love with when I went to the launch of the Hush beachwear collection two months ago? Well they are now on their site! My favourite one is the Kaftan dress (above) which I’ve ordered in XS as it’s quite a large fit. The other dress I love is the Palm beach dress (below) which has a gorgeous handmade crochet panel. If you need a short but efficient shoulder workout, check this one from Tracy Anderson (the advanced version here is killing me!!)
Last Friday, my friend Mandy and I had a good laugh because our respective businesses (hers is Hush Homewear and for those who don’t know this, mine is BODIE and FOU) were built on the back of great style, French chic, Australian laid-back style and relaxed vibes and our girls, being pre-teens, have sometimes, gone on the opposite side of spectrum with pink leggings and mismatched outfits. When she went to France for the school year, I let Mila decorate her bedroom in our home there but a snapshot of her bedroom with mismatched cushions, colours & patterns on her Instagram, freaked me out (don’t look for it, I have deleted the photo hahaha). The good news is that we are finally turning a corner and since she saw her cousin’s bedroom in Paris (which is almost a BODIE and FOU showroom), she has decided she wants the same look and hallelulia to that! So if you have kids who loves spreading Lego or a boisterous dog with long hair like ours, breathe… there is a light at the end of the tunnel and here are …
