Are you ready to bring back the 90's?
Can we just take a minute and talk about my green shoes. I talked about them before in THIS post, but I really think they deserve a post of their own with close up photos.
I have always been a fan of green and especially when it comes it comes to shiny silky fabric like this. I promise you can match them with anything. I really like paring them with denim to make the look more casual as the shoes scream "dressed up", balancing is my favorite thing! They kind of remind me of the Balenciaga green silk mules that everyone seems to be wearing, but too a much more friendly price....

This weekend we had the privilege to attend a friends wedding, it was fun and beautiful just as a wedding should be. I did struggle a lot with my outfit, I think I changed my mind probably ten times and again changed my mind at the very last second.
The main reason was the weather, I simply don't like being cold in combination with the fact that I don't like wearing tights (this was a must if I was gonna wear a dress). As much as I love dresses during summer in winter I lose all my interest in them.
So finally I went for this amazing frill shirt, a pair of green satin heels (!!) combined with my favorite suit trousers ever. I felt really good in my final choice and most importantly warm of course.

A few days ago I styled the new collection for Noordinarysuit, and this time I snapped some behind the scenes photos. Here I am going through the looks (and trying on the blazer from the new collection that is PERFECT) and organizing them according to the different backdrops the photographer is gonna use.
Le mood board. Like this, we know what kind of poses, feel and style in general the photographer Paddy wants.
The setup. We shoot in probably the most beautiful studio in London; The Lemonade Factory. It has a lot of space, newly renovated with natural light shining through, what else can you ask for?
The makeup artist table. So many products I didn't even know existed. I'm not a big makeup girl so for me this is a non-explored universe I have no clue about. I did manage to get some insider tip about how to create that dewy eyeshadow look, the answer is pawpaw balm, a simple product you can get HERE.
And more clothes, this time on the "done-shooting-rail", getting there. Yay.
I will let you know as soon as the work from the shoot it out and share it here on the blog. Let me know if you like post like this and want to follow me more in my day to day life!
So I have been really busy lately with work and stuff, but hopefully, soon I can return back to normal here!
Over two years ago I moved to London after living in Paris, I must admit sometimes I miss things with Paris.
I miss being able to walk a lot. Nothing is really far away in Paris and most of the times the walk is beautiful.
I miss the French food. Sorry Britain but French do cook better.
I miss getting inspired by that effortless Parisian style, you know when they look just perfect and it doesn't even look like they made an effort. I love that.
Today's look I'm dedicating to Paris.

So Fashion week came to London. I worked throughout the week but managed to get to go to the Mary Katrantzou show on Sunday morning at nine (!) with my dear friend Laura. Since it was early I thought why not go full pyjama look, makes sense no? And so I did. I'm in love with this pattern and material from Acne Studios AW17 collection. I feel like this outfit will stay with me forever and never go out of style. Plus you can obviously wear them separated for a less full on look like I'm doing HERE.

Two things, I love right now. The new store Arket where I got my silk camisole from (HERE) and second, my local market found, the straw bag I got in South of France. The two pieces together are a match made in heaven. Since summer is officially over I will wear the straw bag with my trench coat just because I can and because I love clatching seasonal items. The silk camisole will be worn as a layer under a blazer tucket in a pair of denim. Yes, I am ready for the autumn season now!

Let me present you one of my new wardrobe favorite, the silky patterned blouse. There is something special with a great blouse, you feel so dressed up and comfortable at the same time, win win. This one is from Acne Studios AW17 collection and I can't wait to wear the matching pajama trousers that goes with. Stayed tuned.
Now I'm currently boarding a plane on my way to the south of France for the last holiday of this summer and I have a feeling it's gonna be amazing!!
