strips again

Here is the second casual top I bought in New Look in Lille this week-end.
It is pretty simple too, red and white strips with a little ruffle on the front...

and the toothpaste earrings...

casual outfit

This week end, I went to Lille.
Not having any holidays this summer, I will try to escape Paris every week-end till end of august... Jumping on a train really gives me the sensation to be on holidyas, just leaving this crazy town, even for one day, is ok for me...

In Lille, I have a ritual : I go to M&S to buy tights or legging and then I go to the Inspire section of the Euralille New Look.

I bought 3 tops on sales : here is the 1st one, with my eternal jean skirt and a pair a camel shoes from Asos.

I noticed this lovely black top with cream ribbon on the short sleeves.. but it was a little bit too expensive... I take the risk to wait till the next sales or till I get a coupon...

top : New Look (size 22)
jeans skirt : H&M (size 52)
leggings : M&S (size XXL- 50/54)
camel shoes : Asos (size 7)

the Hawaian dress again

I'm officially Asos addicted..
what else to say?

this time, I combined the hawaian dress with a skirt rather than with a legging... it fits better and creates a better line on the figure.

hawaian dress : Asos (size 22)
pencil skirt : Asos (size 24)
shoes : Asos (size 7)

Nothing new outfit

I alreay posted this same outfit a few week ago... but I couldn't resist posting it again...
repetition is also part of the fashion process

I added this large wooden balls necklace from H&M.. I usually prefer small chain necklace but this reminds me of Tahiti and their big natural jewellery

green top : Asos (size 22)
pencil skirt : Asos (size 24)
shoes : I don't remember..

Working girl circa 1987

In my new Asos package, I received this grey pencil fits a little better than the red dress from yesterday, although it is the same size...

The lenght is also a bit too short.
I added this large red belt to pimp the dress up.

It will do a perfect mid season outfit!

New Asos order

Ok, I have to admit... I'm becoming obsessed with the Asos Curve collection... I don't know why, they really develop a good range of clothes..and it is pretty affordable, compared to ugly plus size collection you can find in France...

the big minuses :
- you can't rely on the size chart... I oscillate between a 22 and a 26... and sometimes a 22 is to big
- the short dress are way too short, they are most of the time just tunics or tops, you have to wear them with a skirt or a trousers. I prefer the knee length of Evans but the pattern are not so cute..

here is the perfect illustration : this is me in the red dress... wow... not flattering at all, too short and too tight

I combined it with the black tulip skirt from Yours, then it is wearable....

I also really enjoy the Asos shoe and accessories collection... The shoes are comfortable and the accessories are so kawai!

heading to a forest art festival

This week end, I went to an art festival in the middle of a forest in the east of France...
So, that is why you see black leather boots in july.

I anticipated the cold weather of a night in the forest and God knows I was right... I was really freezing all night long, till we found a shelter in a ancient convent..

So I wore this floral dress I adore with my black skinny jeans and the boots above the jeans...This is also the 1st time I can wear the boots over the jeans and not under... I just love Duo, they propose a perfect range of wide calf boots. I'm just waiting that they add a red model in their catalogue.

this outfit is nothing specially new, just a new arrangement of old clothes.

dress : Asos (size 22)
black skinny jeans : Asos (size 26)
black leather boots : Duo boots (size 40)

before and after...

Before : an awfully sweaty me, trying to escape the heat hiding in my apartment in Paris

After : a fully refreshed me, back from the beach in Normandy..
it was a bliss... It is also my 1st outfit picture outside of my apt

Unfortunately, I'm already back in Paris..

I'm really happy I transformed this old pair of white jean into a skirt.. It is a perfect match for too-short dress (as the floral one from Asos) and too-large vest (from Evans).

blue beach vest : Evans (size 24)
floral dress : Asos (size 22)
white skirt : reformed white jeans H&M (size 50)
red strappy shoes : Asos (size 7)
freshness : the sea....

Pink Flamingos!!

Here it is! My first real summer dress....
It is white.. it is short... it has a very strong animal pattern...
As the heatwave is back in Paris, it s the perfect outfit for today.

the ony problem, is the zipper on the side, it hurts the armpit a little bit...

dots dots dots!

Now that I have discovered the perfect anti chaffing shorts, I really enjoy wearing dresses.
I bought this one in my last Evans order.
I love the shape : the straps are wide enough, the lenght is also really good : in some recent dress I bougt , I have to wear a capri.. This one is really flattering, just around the knee.
And the pattern is cute : the different shaped dots give a cinematic effect...

It is really easy to just grab this one in the morning and tadam, you're ready..

dress : Evans (size 22)
shoes : I don't remember

a taste of holidays..

I'll be working all summer long, therefore I need to get a little taste of holidays..
So here is a beach pattern vest. I'm really not into blue, I don't know why, I don't like this color but I had a litlle crush on the vest when I saw it online.

And i'm not disappointed : the pattern is really pretty, the material is soft and light, perfect for summer.

This morning, in my Evans package, I also received the comfort short I ordered and let me tell you it is perfect : the length is good (3/4 on the thigh) the material is perfect (a mix of nylon, cotton elasthane) and last but not least it is quite cheap (5£).

top : Evans (size 24)
skinny jeans : Asos ( size 26)
shoes : La Halle aux Chaussures (size 40)

how many livres?
