Weather was mild in December and exceptionally warm during the year-end celebrations. But nature has reclaimed its rights and temperatures dropped these last weeks. There is no doubt now, winter is here. Shootings are more and more difficult for me as I am very sensitive to the cold (I dream of going out with my plaid)… This post’s title represents well the weather it was last weekend: standing against the wind, it was freezing. I am surprised not falling ill after it… Finally, men are much more resistant than we think.
Through this winter smart and ethnic outfit, I show you the purchases I have made during the sales. First, there is the black skinny jeans bought at Zara kids. I find it original with its small studs on the sides (I spot it on le blog de Coline and waited for the sales to get it). Secondly, there is also the black suede fringes Mango bag.
To handle the cold, I wear my Zara khaki parka (already seen here), my Princesse Tam Tam x Uniqlo body that I frequently wear (already seen here) and my Pretty Wire scarf. I bougt it last year and love it because it keeps very warm. I recommend you this brand’s scarfs, there are similar designs currently on sale on the website.
The miyuki beads necklace brings an ethnic touch to the outfit. It has been loomed by Cléa and Camille, two sisters passionned by beads jewellry making since their childhood. In 2014, they founded their own brand ByClô. Both Parisians with multicultural origins, they are inspired by their travels to design boheme, elegant and ethnics jewellry. Each piece is unique and can be customized depending on each one wishes. Honestly, I am impressed by the two designers patience: it takes between 8 to 10 hours to loom a big item. For the bags, it takes several months!
Have a nice week, Xxx.
Fashion advice for petites
If you are petite, monochrome is strongly advised (wear the same color on the top and bottom). Indeed, it creates a continuity between the bust and the legs instead of breaking it. That is why wearing jumpsuits and overalls fits very well to petite body types.
