As I told you in a previous "outfit details" blogpost, I LOVE recycling clothes and investing in high-quality and timeless pieces. This cute summer dress with lace trim is no exception and comes from a small boutique in Strasbourg, France (Online Store Nice things by Paloma S.) that looked like Aladdin's Cave to me when I made the purchase!
I've been lurking on this skirt for weeks and it finally went on sale! The skirt was also available in a beautiful blue shade and I was strongly hesitating....I have a thing for blue and really, I need to stay away from it for a while!
Styling white pants is such a child's play! They are probably the only piece of clothes in my wardrobe that I never call into question a thousand times before stepping out. White + Blue is one of my favorite colour combo for summer, it's timeless and it always work well together, no matter the shade you pick.
This dress was found in the cutest shop in Verbania and I remember that it was slightly too big for me. I was hesitating because the pattern with the embroided flowers looked so good, I was almost ready to have it tailored. And that's when the Italian saleswomen gave me a great tip ...
Have you heard about the French brand Sinequanone? I have been a huge fan for years. There designs are timeless and the quality is beyond reproach. I've just discovered that they launched a new website and ship worldwide. Hurray!
I used to have SO MANY clothes in my closet. My mother in law once told me she'd never seen someone with so many clothes. And it's true. Not only because I was buying new things non stop but also because my younger sister (yes, we're almost the same size and luckily enough, we have very similar tastes) would give me all the clothes she didn't like anymore.
When it comes to summer dresses, I have a weakness for lace and eyelet dresses....I find them so classy and timeless, two qualities that made me buy this beautiful dress by the brand J.Crew. I usually wear above-the-knee dresses to make me look taller but I wanted to change and opted for the midi-length. I decided to wear my light pink slides to finish the look, which are my staple for an effortlessly chic warm-weather outfit.
I found the perfect flower bushes for this photoshoot! The summer dress I'm wearing has been in my closet for years and taking care of it paid off. I like investing in high-quality (doesn't necessarily mean that it is overpriced) and timeless pieces that I will be happy to wear again and again without having enough of it.
And another staple in my wardrobe: colorful trousers. I must at least have 5 of them (pink, orange, kaki, blue and coral) but coral holds a special place in my heart. The easiest way to make this beautiful and summery color pop out is to coordinate it with softer tone like white, beige, navy blue or even black.
