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!

RANDOM PHOTOGRAPHY

GET LUCKYThis is the only car air  freshener I ever bought and this just because it was a four-leaf clover.

SKY & BIRDS Spring in Paris. About 8pm.
While taking a walk with my sis and niece, I couldn’t resist the urge to take a picture of these ‘agitated’ birds flying back and forth like in the Hitchcock movie.
It was beautiful to look at, but we anyways walked quickly towards the house…
you never know! ^^

FLOWERSIn my garden in Croatia.
It was the beginning of Spring, the flowers were beautiful, the light was perfect and … click !
It is my favorite picture actually.

CAT I am so in love with this Parisian cat!
While I was taking picture after picture, he stayed still, stared at me the whole time and even after I left he didn’t move an inch.
Cats are crazy.

LEAFSimply a leaf.

BIRDFreedom.
Ironically, I am afraid of flying with airplanes but if I could have one magical power, it would be flying.

CAT 2This is Miki, my sister’s cat descendant.
He is living a happy life somewhere in ‘wild’ Croatia.

SCORPION I came across this little bastard this summer in Krk, Croatia.
So my first reaction was to find as much information as possible on Croatian scorpions and on  Wiki they said there are not very dangerous. Pfiou!
I slept badly that night though…

Hope you’ll enjoy my pics guys!

LOOKS OF THE DAY / 15.11.2014

LOTD 1Love how black, grey, white and cobalt blue work together. It is actually one of my favorite combos both for casual wear as well as when it comes to dress for a more formal occasion. This popular Alexander Wang x H&M dress is the piece that caught my eye the most.  Love the body-kissing shape, the color-blocking and the AW’s all over it. I paired it with a bad-ass biker leather jacket to keep it all in the kick-ass context Alexander Wang created over his sporty and military collection. As the most coveted pair of sneakers nowadays, these simple leather slip-ons were an obvious choice to complete this ultra-modern casual look. The metallic cobalt blue mini pashli shoulder bag brightens it up and instantly gives the look ‘ce petit quelque chose‘! Oversized black sunglasses are not mandatory but strongly suggested. ^^LOTD 2This look is also very inspiring as it mixes several styles which are extremely interesting when worn together. First, there is this eye-catching sweatshirt from H&M’s Denim Conscious collection worn over a leather white mini skirt with a zipper right in the middle. Sporty + Sexy. Second, the double-breasted coat adds some elegance to the two previous pieces. The biker ankle boots give a bit masculine and rebellious twist to the set and the back pack is the ‘childlike‘ piece. I don’t know you, but I really like the result! LOTD 3Dressing for work should be the easier as there is an existing code for workwear. What I mean by that is that either you wear a pant or a skirt and eventually a dress. This time I used pants and simply paired them with a classic and timeless white shirt, a chic blue sweater and a grey coat. The magnificently made flashy orange point shoes are here to brighten it all up and simply because this bright color goes so well with blue. LOTD 4Maleficent-inspired sexy all-black ensemble whose particularity is that it makes every woman looks fierce, from skinny Angelina Jolie to chubby Kim Kardashian, this outfit brings out the sexiness and beauty of every woman wearing it.

Enjoy folks!
