For people who like me live in San Francisco, they know that July and August are depressing… (fog, I hate you during these months) .You need to get out of the city as much as possible to feel you are in summer.
BUT, occasionally, our indian summer allows us to pick out of our closet few summer clothes. Here a little inspiration board of city summer dresses I created to keep me waiting for September…
Summer is almost here and I am sure you saw the espadrilles back in stores. A couple of years ago it really surprised me to start seeing the espadrilles everywhere because believe it or not, this specific type of shoe comes from Spain and the Basque Country of France, where I was born and spent my childhood. Growing up, the espadrilles were my flip flop, buying a couple every year in different colors.
Well, now that is worldwide thanks to Yves Saint Laurent who made the first fashionable espadrilles in the 70’s and Chanel who made it an “it shoe” again a couple of years ago, you can definitely now find very stylish espadrilles at different price points.
The jeans are more than ever one of the classics of our wardrobe.
We all have our skinny jeans but frankly it started to be a little bit boring… Fortunately, fashion designers have been revisited this timeless piece and I am so happy about that! Now you can find new ones that have interesting details, different shapes and washes. I really think the right pair can even be a show stopper.
Fringed hem, cut hem, double color washed, relaxed, cropped… you name it.
Have a look!
Are you convinced and ready to get away from your skinny jeans?
I got to say, with valentine’s day around the corner it made me think that even if we are in a relationship or not, every woman should feel sexy and I would say, pretty often.
Feeling sexy is very personal and it will be defined differently from one person to another. It can be subtle or not, at the end, if when you are looking at the mirror you feel sexy and empowered, go for it.
Details in the clothes, lipstick, necklaces going under a garment, high heels, hair moving…a lot can be seen as sexy as long as you believe in it.
Sexy can be hard if you are not 100% sure about yourself. I did not know how to be sexy. I did not know how to embrace it. I felt ridiculous sometimes trying. The solution I found was in taking baby steps. And getting the right attitude and dare it. And Believing in it. So I tried many things….high heels, pencil skirts, deep V- necks, red lipstick… and I found what I liked and confident with.
This is how I envision being sexy.
So spice up your outfit and be confidently provocative!
Colder weather and style are not necessarily best friends and layering pieces can be tricky to play with when it is too cold outside…But winter can also be a great time to play with different chunky fabrics and create new ways to work with your current wardrobe and make it cold weather proof. Here are the ones that I think are stylish and will keep you warm when it is colder outside.
Oversized wool scarf aka the blanket scarf
Faux fur vest
Belt it to make it more form fitting.
I hope this selection will inspire you to add some stylish layering pieces in your wardrobe!
