dds 6The other day, we were shooting this cute little outfit consisting of the comfiest dress ever that was made to be worn with sneakers and a denim jacket for a perfect casual look. It is a very simple, young and timeless look I have been wearing for years. Even though dresses weren’t my thing for a long time, I have learned to style them my own way (with sneakers ofc!) and wear them more often on daily basis. If you too are a tomboy don’t wait a minute to try this style and trust me, you will instantly embrace it and even become obsessed with it.

Take care guys,

Xo, G.

WHITE DENIM

WHITE DENIM BY GAGI 1There are outfits that are very easy to pull off and yesterday’s outfit is one of them. I cannot live without jeans. For me, they are the ultimate smart-casual fabric to wear in daily life as they instantly make every look more wearable, easy and super comfortable. And as you might have already noticed, I am not a trendsetter trying to wear showstopping looks or the craziest items out there; you will indeed never see me wear clothes that are not reflective of my personality simply because I need to be sure about my outfit to feel confident and comfortable. And that’s the most important thing about clothes; to feel good in what you’re wearing. And as Yves Saint Laurent once said : “Fashions fade, style is eternal”.  So the one sure thing is that I will stick to my basics and always try to make my casual looks stylish, smart and above all cool.

Take care guys,

Xo, G.

To catch a drink with my girlfriends yesterday evening, I decided to wear white jeans as they gave a contemporary vibe to my Rock’n’Roll look. Jeans are from Tally Weijl, T-shirt and belt from H&M, leather jacket from Zara, sneakers from Converse.

ROCK ATTITUDE

ROCK ATTITUDE 1After a super busy week I have finally found some time to share one of the outfits I pulled off a few days ago. I went for an all-black look that I accessorized with my chic tweed bag from Zara to dress it up a bit. The light blue denim jacket serves to contrast with the black color and at the same time brightens the whole look.
Simple, wearable and cool.

Take care guys,

Xo, G.

FAUX-LEATHER PANTS

I AM FULLY SATISFIED with my faux-leather pants and recommend it to anyone. I have been looking for them for a while and even though I wanted tapered pants in faux-leather, the skinny ones ended up being a good purchase too.
As it gets colder, they are the best pair of trousers you can wear since they keep you warm and protects against the cold wind. Not to mention that they are the most stylish and covetable pants these days.

My black turtleneck top seemed the most appropriate top to wear as I wanted a total black look. You can see my white shirt popping out which has been done on purpose, but as it was too chilly and windy while we were shooting, I kept my coat on so there’s no pics about my look without the coat.
The black and white houndstooth scarf gives a sophisticated vibe to my casual attire, especially when worn down. My hi top black converse dress it all a bit down but I think they might not be the right pair of sneakers to wear with these pants. Indeed, I tried them with low converse and the result was way better than in these pics, but as I mentioned before, we don’t have L.A weather here anymore so I have to keep my ankles warm. ^_^

BLACK DENIM OVERALLS

LOTD 1
FRACOMINA down jacket + H&M denim shirt + STRADIVARIUS denim overalls + CONVERSE sneakers + TOM FORD sunglasses

YESTERDAY was the kind of day to wear a relaxed outfit and only a touch of mascara since I was not in a mood to dress ‘too properly‘ and spend half an hour putting on make-up. Yeah, I need at least 30 minutes for that, and I guess I inherited this incompetence from my female ancestors as women in my family including me, aren’t very handy when it comes to making ourselves up. The fact I rarely wear anything else than BB cream and mascara, may also explain my awkwardness in this field. I would never be able to write a post about makeup products as many other bloggers do! Haha…

Let us pass now to the outfit and pieces it consists of. I wanted so badly to wear my denim overalls in a totally ‘I-don’t-give-a-fuck‘ way, so I paired them with my bad-ass ‘Line up the bitches‘ t-shirt and denim shirt, and finished the look with my black Converse to accentuate even more my edgy look. It’s impressive how people started at my overalls yesterday, I guess they are used to see ladies wearing leggings as pants not relaxed overalls.
Anyways, the most important in fashion is that you dress for yourself and feel comfortable in what you are wearing, nothing else really matters.

Have a nice one folks!

CHÂTEAU DE VERSAILLES / PART 1

CDV 1
Wearing : ZARA jacket, t-shirt and bag, H&M leggings and shirt

Throwback to my last visit in Paris, when I took my husband to Le Parc du Château de Versailles for the first time. I am ashamed to admit it was my first time visiting it too. But when you live in Paris, you don’t really care about historical buildings and all that stuff, especially when you’re young and a working student. Weekends were for homework and occasionally for the movies, while holidays were for trips outside Paris or outside France. But now that I am living abroad, and knowing a bit more about French history and monuments, I enjoy discovering those places I’ve heard so much about and knew so little.

The day we went visiting, there was only a few people and the weather was excellent. ‘Cause usually, there are people queuing all the way down to the street, so needless to say how happy and lucky we were that day! And as my husband wanted to see every corner of le Parc du Château de Versailles which is 715 hectares, we spent several hours there and at the end I just wanted to go home and took off my new Converse which were killing my feet and back.

Putting aside the pain, this is the most beautiful man-made place I’ve visited so far.
Tomorrow I’ll post more pictures of the park to show you guys, what a divine place le Parc du Château de Versailles is.

STATEMENT TOP

I have always be hooked on statement, uncommon clothing especially when it comes to t-shirts and sneakers. The idea of having something unlike anything others were wearing was exciting and is still currently relevant. Being original is all that matters.

The t-shirt with a man’s face painted on it caught my eye a few months ago, so I couldn’t leave it there. The cotton fabric is extremely soft, the length is as I like it, the colors of the print are perfect as there’s lots of blue, red, pink, orange, black, nude and white which makes it very easy to combine. However, the only ‘major detail’ that’s bothering me since day one, is the collar. A bit too large so I’m thinking of cutting it off and make an off-shoulder t-shirt for next summer…

Anyways, I must admit I didn’t put a lot of thought into this look as I had to leave the house in a hurry but when you possess nice pieces of clothing, you cannot go wrong, ever. So buy wisely guys! ^^

In addition to my personal snaps, you can find 6 very different looks wearable to a variety of occasions, so enjoy them and hope I helped you get inspired!

SUNNY AUTUMN

SUNNY AUTUMN 1

I am wearing : H&M baseball jacket and t-shirt, Stradivarius jeans

Fall is the worst season of the year for me since it puts an end to Summer, it rains all the time and trees are bare of leaves. At my great surprise, I have learned to appreciate the good things Autumn has to offer. Have to admit that this mild weather helps me a lot!
I have forced myself to think of Autumn as the beginning of something new. In my world, the new year kicks off in September, a month when I start focusing on new projects.
This year for instance, I have decided to start this blog which made my bucket list a bit shorter. But there are still many others, some of which have to wait another year or two to get started and some I have been struggling for years to achieve. Still not done to this day by the way!
However, no matter how demanding those projects and challenges are, I try to face them in style.
Yesterday’s weather was extremely mild and sunny (today’s too) and it felt like Spring actually. Nevertheless, I always carry a light jacket with me in case it gets chilly but these days short sleeves are all you need.

I got this green and white baseball jacket at H&M a few years ago and it’s still like new. It’s more like a sweatshirt which makes it very comfy and pleasant to wear.
My love for baseball jackets (or American football jackets) goes back to my childhood, when I was dreaming of being a cheer-leader ^_^. I got the first one at the age of 11-12 from my cousin. It was red with white faux leather sleeves and was brought from the USA … I was ecstatic!!
I like wearing this jacket with ripped jeans and plain t-shirts whenever I’m planning on having a busy day. The only thing missing is a baseball cap but I’m still searching for THE ONE.
