30 Inspiring Outfit Ideas To Try This September

Hello there,

I hope you’re all doing great.  It’s almost September, and to me September has always had a particular vibe: new school year with the new notebooks and pens, new trends, new backpack, new people, … And I don’t know why, but I always feel inspired in September.  Or if I want to change something in my routine or my lifestyle, it is more likely to happen (and go well) if I do that in September.  It’s probably because it’s “back to school” month, which promises more structure than the summer…  Am I the only one?

Anyway, I gathered here 30 looks we can try for the upcoming month.  It’s a mix of summer and fall looks, given that we can totally experience both (or even all 4) seasons in a month.  Let’s get inspired!

Week 1: September 1st – 10th

Marrakech – Day 2 Photo Diary

Hey there,

As I explained in a previous post, I went to Morocco for a couple of days in April.  I already shared with you pictures from my first day which included a visit of the Jardin Majorelle.  Here, you can find the rest of the photos: the Koutoubia Mosque (I didn’t go inside the mosque — but the exterior was still impressive) and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place.  I was by myself so I chose not to visit the souks since I’m directionally challenged.  However, next time I go, they will definitely be on my to-see list.

Let’s (re-)discover the red city…

6 Summer Beauty Essentials – What To Pack For the Holiday?

Hey there,

For me, the holidays will be in September but I need to escape a little bit – I’m almost counting the days…  So, I gathered here my 6 beauty essentials, the 6 products I’ll definitely pack for my holidays.  I know it’s early but it’s so exciting to think about your beauty kit, don’t you think?  Besides, I’m pretty sure that some of you are leaving sooner than me (a lot of you probably already came back, sorry about that ladies), so maybe you’ll be interested in some ideas for your beauty kit.  And if you’re staying at home or if you already went on holidays this summer, I still think this post can be of interest: these beauty essentials are still valid for the summer even if you stay at your place 🙂

Marrakech – Day 1 Photo Diary

Hey there,

In April, I got to spend a couple of days in Marrakech, Morocco.  It was a business trip, but I managed to fit in a few sightseeing sessions.  I absolutely wanted to see the Majorelle Garden, so that was the first thing I did when I got some free time.  I also went to the Koutoubia Mosque and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place, but that will be for another post 😉

“Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé discovered the Jardin Majorelle in 1966, during their first stay in Marrakech.  […] [They] bought [it] in 1980 and saved it from falling victim to a real estate project and becoming a hotel complex. […]  Yves Saint Laurent would say he was able to find an unlimited source of inspiration in the Jardin Majorelle, and that he dreamt many times about its unique colours.” [Source: jardinmajorelle.com]

Couture Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017-2018

Hello there,

This week was Couture Fashion Week.  Let me repeat.  Couture.  Fashion.  Week.  Put another way, it’s Dreamy-Gowns-OMG-I-Am-Dying Fashion Week.  In this post, I selected for you my favorite looks of my favorite designers.  For some (yep, you know it — Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad), I could have showed you the whole runway!

I’m also really excited to see who’s going to wear these beauties at the future awards shows 😉

Let’s have a look at the crème de la crème of Couture Fashion Week.  All pictures are from Vogue.

How To Wear the Spring-Summer 17 Trends? The Pink Parade Edition

Hello girly girls,

How are you doing today?  In this post, you’ll find a small selection of pieces if you want to rock one of the SS17 trends, namely the Pink Parade edition.  And, let’s be honest, who (like, who) wouldn’t want to wear pink all season long?  I love wearing pink (and not only on Wednesday 😉 ).  Besides, it seemed to work pretty well for Elle Woods right?

If you still have doubts about that very girly colour, you should know that it was seen on the Hermès, Michael Kors, Sacai, and Sies Marjan shows.

31 Inspiring Outfit Ideas To Try This July

Hello there,

How are you doing girls?  Are you surviving the heat?  Because I barely am.  This is ridiculous… To be honest, this week I’ve been super lazy.  I haven’t been able to achieve anything except getting out of bed and dragging myself to work.  I haven’t put in much effort to my outfits, nor my beauty routine and don’t even ask me about sports, I haven’t done a single workout session…  I hope I’ll be better next week!

But this unbearable heat got me thinking though.  As I said, I haven’t put a lot of effort in creating cool (pun intended) looks.  But maybe it would have been easier if I had a sort of fashion calendar.  So I gathered for you (and for me, definitely for me too) 31 looks to try in July.  I try to come up with a list of day looks that were season appropriate, and mostly composed of relatively basic pieces, so that we can get inspired without necessarily having to buy something new (although I don’t have anything against that concept :D).  I also tried to have work appropriate looks for the weekdays, if like me, you’re not on holidays.

First week – July 1st to July 9th: 

To compose these looks, you need these relatively basic pieces:

My Dream Dressing Room

Hey guys,

How are you doing today?

So, a couple of weeks ago someone asked me what my dream dressing room looks like.  And it got me thinking about some “famous” dressing rooms.  My first memory of a dreamy dressing room is Jenna Rink’s; aka Jenifer Garner in 13 going on 30 (remember that movie?).  And then, Mia’s in the Princess Diaries.  And finally, Blair Waldorf’s.  Just so you know the level I’m at right now.

These fabulous dressing rooms make me want to invest – some day – in a gorgeous one for myself.  Even more so that I’ll probably get my own place pretty soon.  Obviously, I won’t be able to afford a huge apartment right away but that won’t stop me from dreaming and imagining my perfect space for when I’m a real grown-up 😉 (wait, shouldn’t I be a real one by now?)
