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.

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 ;).
