It's almost the end of summer. I've never liked that period as a kid because that meant going back to school which stressed me out. But I grew up appreciating it a whole lot more, especially living in New York because it's the period when the heat becomes bearable. It's warm but not too hot, so you can still wear cute dresses without ruining them in sweat!


        Talking about cute dresses, I have a good friend who is also a great designer, Danica Zheng, and when I saw on her brand's Instagram, Pamplemousse NY, the new version of her "Mimosa" dress. I just couldn't resist the cheetah print and asked her if I could try it on asap to see if it fit me. There's also a black version of it, but I found the white one to be slightly more original than the classic cheetah look. I also thought the color looked good with my hair ;)! Anyway, I fell in love with that cute dress and brought it home and felt inspired for a quick shoot in a botanical garden to celebrate the end of summer with fun.


        I accessorized it with the cutest bag from Maison Héroine! I love it because it's big enough to hold my kindle which is the best to keep busy during the wait at the airport, castings and when I enjoy a coffee alone. To protect my head from getting too much sun I wore an old hat found in my closet and my classic Dita Eyewear sunnies obviously! I also have these boots from Isabel Marant which I always wanted the color to be a bit darker until today because I thought all the colors were working well together.


I loved walking around this botanical garden as we were lucky it wasn't crowded, so we could enjoy the beauty of the flowers and the sound of water in a calm atmosphere in between shots.

And when it got a bit chilly I wore this super large cardigan from & Other Stories that I got a few years ago. I love the long sleeves and how heavy it is because it makes everything more cosy and chill.

The shoes aren't available in exactly the same model because it was a past collection and the cardigan isn't available anymore so I give you a different option

Green coat


        I fell in love with that emerald green Mango faux fur coat because of how chic and big it looks, and of course how soft it feels! It has a retro vibe to it so I was inspired to pair it with my tee and jeans from Stoned Immaculate clothing because the 70s are some of my favorite aesthetic vibes. I'm always so happy when I get to do a retro shoot so how cool it is that I could make my own?! I wanted to go to the Upper East Side to take the pictures to keep up with the chic of the coat.


        The weather in New York right now is just between Winter and Spring, one moment you're freezing and the other you're just sweating, so I didn't really want to play with layers here. I love how different the look is with and without the coat: with, it's chic and fluffy, without, the vibe is more relaxed and cool. I also didn't want to add too much to the outfit because the cuts are strong already, so a pair of Topshop heeled boots, and a minimal bag from APC was all it needed.


        I had some loop earrings and a fisherman hat too, wondering at first if it would be too much of a "total look" as I don't love that in general, but I do think it fits here! What do you think?

Punta Cana



        Every winter I say "next year, I go to a warm country and enjoy the beach when everyone else is freezing" lol. Yet last winter I spent a few days at a spa in France, which was nice but no dreamy beaches around, and the winter before I spent the New Year with friends in Amsterdam and again it was a lot of fun but I was freezing my ass! So this year was the year, I wanted to start 2018 in paradise.

I make a difference between "travel" and "vacation". I love traveling and discover cultures and places, but sometimes you need a vacation when you just enjoy and relax, so we decided on Punta Cana because it's a really short flight from NYC and the prices aren't as high as anywhere else. I have to admit that everything was great except the food that wasn't as fresh and good quality as we like... We've also had a cold that we brought from NYC, and we fed the cliché of those who only become sick during their holiday haha! But we came for the beautiful weather and the beach and that was enough to start the year in a positive way.




        One of the greatest pleasures from spending some time in the Caribbeans was to wear my favorite bikini by Solid and Striped. I love all their shapes and colors but this pastel striped one is the cutest swimsuit I've had in a while! I love the pictures from the empty beach and how happy I look lol!

One of my favorite thing to do during the day was read 1Q84 by Murakami in the Bali beds while the sun was high, so I could feel the heat without burning, hearing the relaxing water noise from both the beach waves and the pool.




        I also go to enjoy a few massages and treatments at the spa. I got a dead sea mud treatment before leaving to make my skin tone more even by nourishing it and exfoliating the dead cells. And look at the beauty of the facilities! I thing the pleasure of the eyes is important for relaxation, as well as the sounds surrounding you.




        I brought many shorts, tops and dresses but I think I wore this green wrap dress from Urban Outfitters because it's so comfortable when it's hot and it's so convenient to wear over your bathing suit. It's quite open on the front though so I'm not sure I'd wear it without a cute bra/shirt underneath.




        Everyone who knows me or just follows me on Instagram know I couldn't not own a red swimsuit! This one is from Fella Swim, I saw it on the gram and loved the shape of the top and couldn't resist buying it in one of my favorite colors. I also like to walk around with a sarong for when there's more wind and I feel colder or just when there more people and it makes me feel more comfortable. The beach bag is from Free People, one of my favorite brand! It's simple, just what you need for the beach.

The Gucci glasses, the Fella Swim bathing suit and the sarong aren't available anymore so I give you very close options :)

Retro summer look



        It's quite funny, I don't recall wearing a skirt outside of my job for the past 2 years, at least! But now that I am playing with shapes and colors and it's starting to boil in New York (95°F today)... Well, I felt like wearing a skirt for the first time in a while! I went to Hudson River to take the pictures, and when the weather is that hot it's pretty refreshing to feel the strong wind.




        Because of the red stripes of this Zara skirt, I felt like keeping the look simple with just a tee and heels and not too many strong colors. I liked the retro look this combination gave with the green Manolo Blahnik pumps and this cute Snoopy t-shirt from Free People. The jumper is Vanessa Seward, I didn't need it outside at all but you should always have a jumper with you during the summer in the US because the air conditioning is so strong everywhere lol. The bag is vintage and I love the design on it, it's both simple in the colors and material and sophisticated with the sewing. I hope you enjoy the beautiful days as much as I do (and wear skirts)!

The shoes are Manolo Blahnik and the bag and the ring are Vintage so I give you similar options :)

It's summer time in New York!


        It has been pretty hot in New York last week and I swear even if I am french, I won't complain about it! I love summer and the feeling of the sun on my skin (wearing sunscreen!) and the fact that everything has a different atmosphere: even when you're working it feels almost like holiday and summer plans are very close. That said, extreme temperatures - very cold or very hot - can be a struggle when it comes to what to wear. When it's winter you have to wear as many layers as possible and vice versa for summer. So how to still be stylish in that case?




        I fell in love with this Kaftan by Free People because it's a way to bring some beach vibes in the city and it's so colorful! A good way to wear shorts and a tank top without feeling bored, and it flies in the wind to create a dramatic scene haha! Add sandals and a colorful belt and voilà, ready for an iced coffee on terrace. Summer is easy, you just have to enjoy and remember to stay hydrated ;).

Again, the sandals are Jimmy Choo and the earrings aren't available anymore so I give you similar options :)

Sakura Season


The most beautiful season is back! I was a bit jealous when I saw the pictures of some of my friends who are in Japan for Sakura season because it's such a big deal there and Naka-Meguro has this special feeling with the small river and the trees around it. So I searched for the same romantic atmosphere in New York and went to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden where some cherry trees were blooming. I love the romantic pictures we took there so much that I'm going to spam you and put more than I usually do in this article, as I hope you'll like this atmosphere as much as I do.




It was really nice to see everyone enjoying the beauty of the flowers, I love that spring makes everyone feel better as we know sun and light are really important for the mind! But I have this problem in spring: I don't always know what to wear. It's sunny and starts to be warm but I am still getting cold easily and end up switching between trying to avoid freezing or being super sweaty. That's why I liked this cropped Zara sweater which is just right for this problem for me: covering my arms and not my belly makes me feel warmer than the contrary. I also wore my Alpha Industries bomber (I chose the men's small size as I wanted a slightly oversized look) as it got cooler at the end of the day and I loved the classic army look next to the Sakura blooming's dreamy feeling. And I felt like wearing nude pumps with my ripped Madewell jeans (told you I loved their denim!) was balancing the whole look as the ambiance was more chic and romantic. What a beautiful season.

How to : casual red


I think red is becoming my favorite color. I've been told it suits me, but even if people would have told me the contrary I'd still wear it ! I like how bold that color is wether it's on your lips, your sweater, your pants and even on your eyes. Now, it's not everyday that you can wear a whole red outfit and look casual, and even just red pants aren't always easy to assume for everybody. So here is an example of how you can do casual with bright red.



I do like taking pictures in Tribeca as there is this mix between old and modern buildings. This is what I'm looking for in general: I tend to dislike total looks and lack of variation unless you go for minimal or all black. When red is on anything that isn't sweater or sweatpants, I think that it makes it automatically chic or/and showy, and needs to be broken down with something more relaxed and casual. That's why I wanted to wear my Free People sweater with a t-shirt underneath and pair it my with ripped Madewell jeans and sneakers. But not any sneakers, those babies are from the Nike Air Max anniversary and are already sold out, I barely dare walking in them as I don't want to make them dirty haha ! Add a belt, a cool New Era hat, thin jewelry to bring bag the chic of it and that's it. A comfortable not-over-the-top look with bright red.

Unfortunately the shoes are already sold out :( but hopefully will be restocked

And the sweater is from a past collection so here is a similar one

Mon amie TriBeCa, NY


This is my first post in a while, I am sorry about that. 2017 has been really good to me so far but after my trip to Paris, I had a lot to do and organize as I moved to a different place in NYC and focused first on new experiences for me. I also wanted to think more about the direction I want for The French Glow since I wanted it to represent more who I am and be more personal while continuing with the beauty and wellness direction. But here I am, back and excited to share more with you guys! I also started collaborating with photographers to shoot lifestyle pictures around the world, so contact me (bottom of the website) if you are interested!



Spring is finally settling in NYC as we started to get jealous of the West Coast and Europe for their great weather. Warmer weather means brighter colors and lighter materials: you can now dress how you like it and not anymore just to try to survive from the cold! It also means festival season and the need to feel comfortable before anything but still look good.

I had a crush on this sweater from Topshop: the pink is beyond cute and perfect for me as I used to wear all black all the time. I still love black as it is très chic, but bright colors give me more positive energy and I also find that colors give you a more personalized look. And this sweater has "Je suis heureux" written on the back which means "I am happy" in french, and it's exactly how I feel at the moment! I like that the white jeans make the color pop more than with black or blue jeans, and they're stretch and high waisted which is to me the most comfortable for jeans. Madewell is actually my new go-to for denim: they're all comfy and there is so much choice available.

The parka is very practical as well: it's not too heavy but blocks the wind, and I love the oversized look and also that the material is not stiff which makes it easier to wear. It's a little bit expensive but when I saw it at Zara I couldn't resist! And for the shoes, I love the look of my new Nike Lunarepic but more than that, they feel like sleepers as they are so light weight! The best when you need to be on your feet for hours at festivals like Coachella. The purple color is already sold out which makes me so happy that I didn't wait as much as I usually do to buy shoes.

I wanted simple accessories for this light look so you don't need to think about losing anything; a thin choker from Are You Am I and earrings from a small boutique in Soho, as my taste for jewelry is a mix of chic, simple and more rock. The belt is vintage and the classic Ray-Bans are never getting old. My Balenciaga is my favorite bag at the moment: I bring it everywhere and I'm in love with it as it's big enough to fit all your necessary items and has this slightly cracked leather that gives so much character to it, again a classic that will never die.

Shoes and earring are similar but not the exact item. Sorry, they're the closest I could find :(

My leather jacket




We're in this period when you don't know how to dress and you're freezing in the morning but sweating in the afternoon, and one day it feels like spring and the next day it feels like winter again... The truth is that there is no real solution, and we'll all be freezing/sweating until the weather finally settles (if it does). But I find that alternating between the motorcycle leather jacket in the warmer days and the bomber jacket in the colder ones is the most comfortable thing to do at the moment. So my winter coat is back in the closet for good and here I am talking about one of my favorite piece in my wardrobe.

My leather jacket is from Sandro Paris, from a few seasons ago, but sadly, they don't sell it anymore. I remember that day when, after loosing my old leather jacket in a bar, I went shopping with a friend trying to find a not-so-expensive vintage leather jacket. "A classic black one", I decided and was sure about what I wanted. But of course, during window shopping I let myself get seduced by this one. It was love at first sight ! I love when I have a real crush on a piece of clothing, that I will cherish for as long as it will last. And believe me, it doesn't happen to me often. I like that the shape is very classic and basic (no crazy spikes on the shoulders or weird pockets), but the crackled leather gives it a complete different style, adding an original touch to a classic item.
