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 ;).

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 :(
