A l'Opéra

My fall holidays are just two days away from now, and I can tell you I can't wait for it, although most of it would be dedicated to more work for university just as for my class at school...
Now on to the look: another shot from my Parisian holiday - miss it so much! - in summer but still totally fine to wear this month, just switch the sandals for black velvet loafers and maybe add a pair of tights in the chilly mornings! I was wearing this beyond stunning embroidered skirt, the perfect opulent piece when visiting the opera Garnier, but paired with a casual trench and sandals. What do you think? :)

I got a new haircut! This was definitely much needed. Nothing too spectacular though, very soft highlights and a classic, easy to style cut are exactly what I like :) Holidays are not very far from now and I can't wait to rest a bit from busy school days.
I am also very happy to show you the latest creation of my talented friend Morena - remember her brand Fuscra and her gorgeous wooden bags (here and here)? She came out with a very special idea of eco recycled leather bags and home goodies, and as always her design with geometric patterns is perfect! I really loved the concept and these bags have such an interesting texture and style. Just as her wooden bags, these one reflect her passion for nature and I truly feel like wearing a sculpture, a piece of art! I wanted to wear this beige one with a fun autumn outfit full of different textures and patterns such as leather, lace, animal prints, to create a deep contrast. I hope you like it as much as I do :D

I can't believe I still have looks from Paris to show you! Well, summer holidays and first month as a teacher has gone so fast, I do my best to keep the blog up,  even more since as many of my fellow bloggers may have noticed, Instagram (sadly, although I quite like it) is tending to drive viewers away from websites... But no worries, I definitely want to keep it going! 
Now on to the look: Can we take a minute to appreciate how stunning that blue macrame skirt is? It is surprisingly so easy to wear in a casual way , just tucking a top in ant throwing a bag on the shoulder! I especially love that blue tint, I wanted to play with contrasts and texture by adding that snake printed scarf. And you, what do you  think? :)

I hope you are all doing well girls! Fall has officially started but the sky decided to say otherwise, as we still had 26°C yesterday afternoon, which definitely did not help me stay at home and work... and I have still some summery outfits to show you! just add a cardigan and swap the sandals for some flats and loafers, this look would be just perfect in the mornings ;) This is one of my most loved and worn dresses from this summer! The silk fabric and lovely embroidery makes it so comfortable to wear and gives that sophisticated touch I can't get enough of. I decided to wear a belt to define the silhouette and my favorite purchase from Morocco, this pretty handbag for an ethnic feel, especially associated with the embroideries. What do you think? ^^

A quick and easy outfit for a casual outing, going delicatessen and grocery shopping! I like to bring some fun and details into my everyday looks, and that mini beaded bag is just perfect. it carries just what's needed when doing one of my favorite things. I really enjoy goig to delicatessen shops and at the farmer's market. This is where I always go first when visiting a foreign country, it's the perfect place to experiment some delicious streetfood in a very special atomsphere. But in my hometown, I rather focus on satisfying my taste for delicious products ^^

I hope you all are doing very well now that fall has officially started! I have already caught a cold, pupils sneezing and coughing right in your face couldn't do much good and it's kind of a normal thing with young teachers, we get to catch all viruses on the first year! Anyway, I hope this will pass soon as I have tons of work to do...
Two weeks ago, Maxime and I went for a little getaway in Basel. Museum, strolling around and photo shooting in the streets, we had a lovely time and discovered places we didn't know about, such as the wonderful botanical garden. I was wearing this pretty pink dress in this very interesting fabric which is quit thick, some casual lace up sandals and my favorite Russian shawl. What do you think ? ^^

Ah, Paris... I miss this place even more now that I got back to work. I spent the weekend preparing lessons for my pupils (and shopping online to let the steam off... two pairs of shoes. woops.), remembering the holidays. The Palais de Tokyo is one of my favorite spots there, this great art deco building is breathtaking! We took the time to shoot this look I was wearing. Yes, this is more of an evening dress than a casual summer day outfit! But I feel like black embroidered clothes embellished with sequins shouldn't be only for a night out, I love to wear my favorite pieces whenever I like (And I rarely go out at night :p). Although, I follow a few rules when doing so: keep away from jewels, fancy accessories and from party shoes, and rather go for simple tote or bucket bags and casual sandals. This tones down fancy dresses a lot and makes it a lot more day-appropriate. If you like sneakers and backpacks, these are a nice choice as well! What do you think, would you also dare to wear party items in daytime? ^^
