LUMBERJACK STYLE

lumberjack style 1Being a fashion blogger is exhausting sometimes, because you need to over think what you are going to wear and bla bla bla. Some of the most successful fashion bloggers out there dictate what we should be wearing and what we should be buying in order to be in, but I simply refuse to think their way. First, I don’t feel like wearing super high heels, even if it is with a destroyed pair of jeans to the mall or to grab a drink with friends simply because we, normal people don’t live that kind of life. It’s not Sex and the City out here and let’s be honest many bloggers (if not all of them) carry flats in their bags to change after shooting, so why selling a lie? Why keep showing us everyday looks styled with the most gorgeous high heels, that we all buy but wear only once or twice in real life? I love bloggers such as Sincerely Jules or Kenzas, who most of the time wear normal stuff, stuff we can buy and wear on a daily basis but apart from a few fashion bloggers, the rest is promoting the super chic style we can only wear on special occasions. What about everyday style, simpler looks? It’s too bad that fashion bloggers avoid wearing tracksuits for example. I love how Rihanna and Cassie manage to style their oversized tracksuits and still look very feminine and sexy and in my case, I sometimes feel bad about taking pictures when wearing a 100% sporty outfit because it doesn’t feel “right” or because there’s nothing fabulous about it. But I am done with this shit, from now on I will take pictures of all my outfits, trendy or not, because at the end of the day this blog is about my personal style, and this kind of look is part of who I am. ^_^ As Coco Chanel said, Fashion fades, only style remains the same!

PLAID, LEATHER, KNIT & SUNSHINE

I honestly cannot be happier these days!
After two weeks of depressive weather and poor light, the Sun finally showed up its face yesterday. I woke up with so much energy and positivity. The sunshine has so much positive influence on my mood that as soon as I opened my eyes, I jumped out of bed (which is so unusual for me), started organizing my day, my week, the holidays and the list goes on… That felt good!
After a productive morning, I had a very productive afternoon too! Don’t know if it is the weather or not, but I got a clear and definite ‘yes’ from my husband when I asked him if he’ll go with me for a session of shopping at the mall. The last time we went shopping together was like a year ago, you know how men are…
Anyways, before going to the mall we stopped at this beautiful spot not far from where we live to take a few shots. The view was impressive as usual. Is there anything prettier than a view of sunny snowy mountains ? It is so relaxing and pure and every time I see them, I cannot wait to go snowboarding.
The outfit I picked out for yesterday was super comfy and cozy, exactly what I was looking for since shopping can sometimes be very exhausting. I went for the plaid shirt as it goes perfectly with the actual mood. Tartan patterns always reminded me of Christmas so it was an obvious choice. I usually wear it buttoned up but this time I wanted to play with layers and decided to wear a white t-shirt under it. The faux-leather pants added a rock’n’roll therefore interesting vibe to the whole look so that is why I wore them instead of a pair of jeans. As for the shoes, it didn’t take me long to choose. I will never wear anything else than sneakers for a shopping session, never! Hats off to all those women and girls I saw yesterday strolling through the mall and carrying their shopping bags, their bulky coats and wearing heels! Speaking of bulky coats, I definitely didn’t want to carry around my down coat which tends to annoy me pretty quickly as I have to have my hands free to touch all the fabrics, so this time I turned on my brains while still at home and decided to wear my warm knitted oversized cardigan which once I was hot, put in the shopping bag.

Take care guys!
