Cadiz – Hotel La Cathedral

Travel-Blog-Hotel-Cathedral-Cadiz

Before I post the pictures of our trip to Cadiz, I had to make a quick post about the hotel we booked there: the Hotel La Cathedral.

It was ideally located on the square of Cadiz’s Cathedral (so beautiful with its mix of baroque and moorish architecture), a few steps from the ocean, but overall…with a rooftop pool with a direct view on the Cathedral, as if you could touch it, and a 360° view of the city.

The perfect spot to chill when it’s more than 105°outside in the afternoon! Continue reading

Sevilla – Day 2

Door-Spanish-Sevilla

You know it’s Summer because I barely publish on the blog!
Yet we are not on holidays: between the preparations for our wedding, my return to the States in Fall, Jules and my work (which does not magically stops in July and August, unfortunately), I feel a little overwhelmed.

That’s why it feels so good to look back at those pics from our week in Andalucia, Spain.
Here is our second day in Sevilla (the first day was posted here), and since I am a little lazy, I also post the outfit of the week at the same time! It’s a timeless Summer outfit featuring my fav oversize top by my lovely Margaux Lonnberg . Continue reading

Sevilla

Sevilla-Cathedral-Gothic

Wow, I haven’t published anything in two weeks!

For those who follow me on Instagram, you know I was in Andalucia with my man (the first holidays just the two of us without our son), and it felt so good to enjoy those days and put the blog aside for once.

But I took hundreds and hundreds of pictures to share our trip with you, and let me tell you that the selection was not easy. Continue reading

Play It Draped

IRO-Draped-Grey-Dress

I realized writing this that it’s the second time in one month that I am wearing a tight dress, which is surprising knowing that for years I was going for fluid and oversize cuts.

It’s true that since I turned 30, I am living better with my body than when I was 20, and I am going for more feminine and sexy cuts.

And if I must wear a tight dress, I want it casual, that’s why this dress from IRO convinced me: it’s the perfect everyday cotton dress, but the draped details on the hips add a sophisticated touch which allow you to twist it into a party dress if you wish.

Chile – Part 2

CHILI- ATACAMA DESERT TOURISM

It was more than 40°C today! I can’t believe that a few days ago I was freezing in Chile with temperatures under zero degrees. I already shared with you the first part of this trip organised by Bose, but I kept the best for the end: today, I am talking about the geysers we went to see, the natural pools we swam in, and the colored lakes we visited.

90’s Revival

Mini-robe-moulante-kaki-Newlook

I love Fashion, but sometimes I feel like nowadays the collections are more and more complicated, and the fabrics heavy especially for the Summer: neoprene tops, cutout dresses, layers of lace…when its 30°C in Paris (like it’s the case now), you just want to slip in a light and easy-to-wear dress.

I remember the dresses that my mother was wearing in the 90’s. They looked like slip dresses, in cotton or silk, they were very tight, but she was wearing it with flat sandals or white sneakers, which was cute, feminine and sexy at the same time. If you can’t picture it, think of Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell in the 90’s, or the dresses of Rachel in Friends. Ring a bell?

20 years later, I found the perfect mini-bodycon dress, from Newlook (an addictive website with hundreds of pretty affordable creations).
I thought I would not dare to wear such a tight cut, but honestly it’s a very light model that you wear like a second skin.

Soooo, what do you think? Continue reading

One Piece

Maillot-de-bain-une-pièce-tendance-été-2015

I am planning to spend the Summer in the South of France, and there I only need denim shorts and a one piece swimsuit (which I wear at the beach or as a bodysuit at night).

Looking for the perfect piece on the web, I’ve been agreeably surprised by some designers/brands: Maje launched an amazing bronze model in Lurex (must look good on my skin :-) ), the French designer Albertine Swim (if you don’t know her, go on her eshop NOW, she is the Queen of swimsuits to me) made me melt with her embroidered Camarat model, or Sahara Ray (who I met a year ago during a shooting with Sean Murphy) launched her own super sexy line of swimsuits, for those who dare.

Which one will you fall for?
