A Weekend in Venice


Hello everyone!
I'm very excited to share my trip to Venice with you, although I don't know where to start. The place is just amazing, and even if I had high expectations about this trip, I still didn't expect that! During a weekend, I felt like I had been time travelling. I think that pictures will always say more than long sentences so I have included a selection of my favourite pictures.

My 'on sale' selection


I had spotted this Esprit coat before, and guess what? It's now on sale. Unfortunately, my car has recently crashed my bank account, so I've decided to do some virtual window shopping instead. And since I'm a nice girl, I'll share my selection with you just in case you're not going through an unforeseen financial crisis too. But even if you are, I've only selected items on sale! No need to thank me!
Like I said, it all started with the coat. I love everything about it: the colour, the shape, the details and the fact that it's now on sale is the icing on the cake. I like Esprit as they have very nice collections as well as basics for affordable prices and you know how much I love a good basic. I think this coat has something special but is still easy to match with other items so I though I would create a whole look around it, just for you.

I hope you enjoy it,

J'avais repéré ce manteau Esprit il y a quelques temps, et devinez quoi? Il est maintenant en soldes. Malheureusement, ma voiture a décidé de s'en prendre à mon compte en banque donc mes séances shopping resteront virtuelles ce mois-ci. Ce qui ne m'empêche pas de rêver un peu et de me confectionner des tenues complètes! Et comme je suis sympa, j'ai décidé d'en partager une avec vous au cas où, contrairement à moi, vous ne faîtes pas face à une crise financière majeure. Cela dit, même si c'est le cas, je n'ai choisi que des articles en soldes! Pas la peine de me remercier!

Comme je l'ai dit, tout est parti de ce manteau. J'adore tout: la couleur, la coupe, les détails, et le fait qu'il soit en solde, c'est en quelque sorte la cerise sur le gateau! J'aime bien Esprit car ils ont des collections sympa et ils font de beaux basiques à prix franchement abordable. Et je pense que vous avec compris que je ne dirai jamais non à un bon basique. Je trouve que ce manteau a quelque chose en plus tout en étant facile à associer à d'autres vêtements donc j'ai eu envie de créer un look autour de lui, rien que pour vos beaux yeux.

J'espère qu'il vous plaira,

It's hard to take decent pictures at the moment as it gets dark at 3. Believe it or not, these pics were taken in the morning (and it was freezing)! 

So to brighten up January, I try to wear a bit more colour. Now don't think I'm turning into a parrot, I still love a good black outfit. 

Jeans and Tux

I have a terrible habit when I go back to France: I always go to Zara and end up buying more than I actually intended to. Now I know, there is a Zara shop very close to my place in England but it's not the same... Zara in my home town feels like my second house. I usually go back to France when I'm on holiday, which involves a lot of free time and well... Bad habits come back very quickly you know!

Smart but comfortable

Happy new year everyone!

I hope that you have had an amazing end of year and that you enjoyed the holiday (or at least the bank holidays) like I did. Wishing you the best for 2016 now: meeting new people, enjoying life, travelling, having great food and most importantly, sharing love around you.
And speaking of travelling, I am going to Venice at the end of the month and I think I might make an article about it so let me know if you are interested.
