Young French designers: Le Chant du Robot


Today is the 2nd anniversary of my arrival in Belgium and I can say I am now well established out here. Funnily though, my connections with France have never been stronger. Most of my friends here are other french expats for instance and we keep talking about how we miss this and that.

Wear Yellow, it's good for you


I usually like shopping alone simply because I'm on my own schedule and don't have to wait or make somebody wait. Every now and then though, I go on a spree with my mom or a friend and it feels good too.

The last time I went was with my friend Lola and we had a blast. Her thing is mustard yellow and it looks great on her. As for me, I don't know if it's the freezing temperatures of the last couple of weeks  but I really feel like bright colors. No wonder we both had an instant crush on this Zara top during sales.

They say you shouldn't wear the same thing at the same time but we had a really good laugh. I don't know how she plans on wearing it but I sure do have a lot of ideas already!

Généralement, j'aime faire les boutiques seule. Tout simplement parce que je peux faire mon shopping à mon propre rythme sans avoir à attendre ou faire attendre quelqu'un. Mais de temps en temps, il m'arrive de faire une virée avec ma mère ou une copine et ça fait du bien aussi.

La dernière fois, c'était avec mon amie Lola et on en a bien profité. Son truc à elle, c'est le jaune moutarde qui lui va à ravir. Quant à moi, je ne sais pas si ce sont les temperatures glaciales de ces dernières semaines mais j'ai envie de couleur vives. Du coup, après avoir ecumé les rayons on a toutes les deux flashé sur ce haut en soldes chez Zara.

On dit que ça ne se fait pas de porter la meme chose en meme temps, mais nous ça nous a bien fait rire. Je ne sais pas comment elle compte le porter mais de mon coté j'ai déjà plein d'idées!

Pleated


I don't really enjoy wearing skirts or dresses in winter for a very simple reason: I hate wearing hosiery. I don't find it uncomfortable, but the fact you might rip your tights any second is more than I can handle. Luckily, this year was all about midi skirts so no need to be as careful, which made my life so much easier.

Embroidered boots


I think I never owned as many different styles of clothes as I do now. Let's face it, making a good living has made shopping a lot more interesting. Right now, I am obsessed with embroidery.

Young french designers: Lisa Pearl


A couple of weeks ago, I was talking about how excited I was about the winter sales, especially because I got to discover a few young French designers.

French style


I realize that even if I love clothes and I love playing with them, I am far from being the most creative girl in the world. As the typical French girl, most of the time, I limit myself to the same colors: black, grey, white and every other neutral tone. And sometimes, if I feel like it, I'll add color to my looks. Careful though, only a little touch. I guess that's what they call French style.

skirt x sneakers


I love how sneakers are all over the place since a couple of seasons now. They make life so much easier. Taking your heels off after a long day might be one of the best feelings in the world, but it still doesn't beat the comfort of sneakers.

Fluffy coat




If there's one thing that is comforting in winter, it's fluffy things. They're not only warm, they also make any outfit a lot more interesting. Obviously, I'm speaking of faux-fur only. Actually, I still don't get why today, at our latitudes, some people still hesitate between the two. When you know that on top of that, faux fur allows even more styles... Really, I don't get it.

Hearty sweet potato & black bean chili

I always loved cooking but it really became a big part of my life about a year ago when I started working at the company I'm at right now. We don't have a cafeteria so we can either order food, eat out, or bring it ourselves. I usually go for the third option and it has completely changed my evening routine. The thing is, I'm not always in the mood for meal prep so I try to come up with quick and easy dishes that are both tasty and healthy.
