Today is my due-date, so it is time for me to take a break for a few weeks…but before, I wanted to share with you the pictures I did with the future dad to commemorate these last 9 months of pregnancy.
We wanted something simple, pure, and overall not too cheesy (forget sunsets or kisses on the belly!).
No background, no accessories, no sophisticated outfit, no make-up or hair done, just us and my belly, in black and white.
I love the result, and would like to thank my friend Tina, founder of the Web Design agency “The Next Movement”, who took the pictures for us and understood our expectations like a pro! Continue… →
Ma période préférée de l’année est arrivée: découvrir les collections Automne-Hiver de mes créateurs préférés.
Je n’ai plus besoin de vous présenter Margaux Lonnberg, une amie dont j’adore le style urbain, décalé et terriblement parisien, à base de beaux basiques revisités selon l’oeil avisé de la créatrice: le blazer à la coupe masculine, le maxi-pull noir, le tee-shirt uni à porter décontracté avec un jean…
Sa nouvelle collection Automne-Hiver 2014-2015 est plus complète, aboutie, mature. J’y reconnais plus que jamais la signature à la fois pointu et dégaine de Margaux, dans ses grands pulls cocoon dans lesquels on a envie de se lover, des tee-shirts oversize contrastés avec des pantalons droits stricts ou des sweats confortables et trendy. Voici mes 10 pièces coup de coeur de la collection: Continue… →
I’d like to take back when I said that maternity wear brands suck, and only suggested leggings and large shirts, because I recently received a few presents from the American brand Wendy Bellissimo, and everything was super cute!
Wendy Bellissimo specializes in maternity fashion, baby and kids apparel, as well as nursery and kids furniture…(they obviously KNOW what they are tdoing), and designed exclusively for Maternity Destination, a line of comfy and feminine essentials to wear during your pregnancy.
Here are my 4 favorite outfits from their new collection, shot at 38 weeks of pregnancy. Continue… →
Bored on my couch during my 9th month of pregnancy, I was looking for a miracle DYI to repair my very damaged hair (cause i must be the only pregnant girl on earth who has dry and dull hair…), when I discovered this surprising new trend: the “No Poo” movement, or how to stop to use commercial (and mostly chemical) shampoos, masks, hair oils, moisturizing treatments…
First, it sounded totally crazy to me, being someone who can’t resist to try every new product on the market, which makes my bathroom look like the Haircare Department of Sephora.
Then, I remembered that every revolution is shocking at first (remember when we all thought that skinny jeans made our legs look like sausages 15 years ago?), and decided to give this trend a try.
I’ve always loved hats. To me, a beautiful hat is the perfect accessory for every outfit, from the casual jeans with an androgynous shirt to the classic little black dress.
Even better, I think that in summer, there is nothing more chic than a felt hat, compared to the straw hats, too light, too fragile, and too much seen.
I usually love to buy my hats in vintage stores, but I had a huge crush on the hats of the parisian brand Big Aristote.

Big Aristote’s hats are everything I love: unisex basics (only 3 models per season, because who needs more?), high-quality (handmade in Spain), in various flet and ribbon colors. Classic, sober, chic, period.
The model I fell in love with at first glance is the Zeebo, a wide brim hat, which I chose in chic navy with a blue ribbon.
The two other models of the brand: the Pistol Pete bowler hat or Drexler two-tone fedora hat, more fun and less retro.

To shop Big Aristote:
- If you come to Paris, I recommend that you fo try those hats at the edgy concept store Springsioux in Le Marais.
- On Big Aristote‘s website.
I have the best girlfriends in the world: they understood that being pregnant does not mean wearing ONLY large and long dresses or a loose blouse, and they gave me this adorable white mini-dress from boho designer Antik Batik, with hippie chic embroideries.
I wear it here with camel and gold colors to give an extra summer twist to the outfit.
A special thank you to my loves Lauren and Karine for this present! And to Aurélie who took the pictures while my man, aka JP, is away. Continue… →
