Festival time, festival look

Whatever is your favorite music festival: Coachella, Burning Man, Glastonbury, or les Deferlantes you have to be ready because now starts the countdown. The first Coachella the 15th of April at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California and then, not stopping until late summer. The look that is imposed is the boho-hippie look and  already there are brands such as H&M or Asos have launched a special festival collection.

What to put in your suitcase? Denim shorts, t-shirts, loose blouses, hippie and white or  floral dresses, flat sandals or if you go to Glastonbury don’t forget a pair of wellies. To complete the look: sunglasses, a hat to protect you from the sun and many, many bracelets and necklaces Hipanema style.

These are my choices for the festival look. Which one is you favorite one?

Sea cual sea tu festival de música favorito: Coachella, Burning man, Gastonbury, o les deferlantes hay que estar preparada porque ya comienza la cuenta atrás. El primero, Coachella el 15 de abril en Empire Polo Club in Indio, California y así, sin parar hasta finales de verano. El look que se impone es el estilo boho-hippie y ya hay marcas como H&M o Asos que ya han lanzado una línea de ropa especial festivales.

 Qué meter en la maleta? Un short vaquero, camisetas, blusas sueltas, vestidos sueltos blancos o florales, sandalias planas o si vas a Gastonbury no olvides unas botas de agua. Para completar el look gafas de sol, un sombrero para protegerte del sol y muchas, muchas pulseras y collares tipo Hipanema.

Estas son mis propuestas para conseguir el look festivalero. Cuál os gusta más?

I Love Sales: ideas what to buy

I’m back and with me, the sales!! First of all I want to wish you Happy New Year 2016 and  all the best for this year. And what a great start to the year with the sales!. Shopping in the sales is a great chance to get good quality items but also they can be dangerous, you may finish with a mountain of things that you don’t need or you are never going to wear. Don’t buy just because it’s a bargain!! and remember the most important: quality instead quantity.

What do you really need? Any basic piece to build your winter wardrobe: a good coat, a parka, suits, sweaters, shirts, a little black dress, jeans, skirts, pants, shoes, bags, gloves, scarves, sunglasses, socks and underwear. Preferably invest in quality and simple items, they will last longer and you will not get tired of them quickly. It’s better to have a good pair of shoes, rather that five pairs: cheap and bad (and they kill your feet).

I will explain in more detail how to build a good wardrobe in another post. Today this is my list for the sales:

-Coats: black, grey or camel coat, you choose the color and the style but you always need a good coat  for the low temperatures.

  1. Maje 255 € 425 € 2.  Zadig&Voltaire 339,00 € 485,00 € 3.  Antik batik 247,50 € 495,00 €  4. Manoush 328 € 655 €  5. ba&sh 238,00 € 340 €

  1. Maje 297 € 495 € 2. Zadig&Voltaire 249,00 € 498,00 €  3. Claudie Pierlot 282.5 € 565€

-Leather jacket: everybody should have one, wear it with dresses or trousers to get a more informal look. Look for versions that are not too complicated and you will keep it forever.

  1. Maje 225 € 450 € 2. Perfecto Manoush 416 € 831 €

-Little black dress: LBD is wardrobe essential, you should have at least one. As Vogue  said the LBD is  becoming “a sort of uniform for all women of taste”

 

  1. Maje 147 € 245 € 2. Zadig leather dress 594,00 € 990,00 € 3. Manoush Lovely Bird 289 € 578 € 4. ba&sh dress 168,00€ 240 € 5. Claudie Pierlot dress  135 € 225 € 6. Maje ROBBY dress 172,5€ 345 €

Pleated skirt, Get the look!

Hi, how are you?

Here I am enjoying the good weather and nothing better than going for a walk along the beach. I can’t believe that we have such as a good weather in November.

Now that the pleated skirt is the new fashion trend, I rescued mine from the wardrobe. The one I’m wearing is Manoush, and I bought it 2 years ago. This purchase was quite an investment because since I bought it have not stopped wearing it, and especially this year! I like to wear it with a denim shirt or a basic T-shirt for hot days or turtleneck jersey for colder days.

Here I’m wearing a H&M denim skirt, the bag is Antik Batik, Ash boots, glasses Marc by Marc Jacobs and Hipanema bracelet.

As I told you I got the skirt 2 years ago but you can find similar ones in Zara or Topshop. Here some ideas to copy the look or what to wear with a pleated skirt.

Also this post will be the beginning of new category on my blog dedicated to outfit ideas and where to get them, I hope you like it.

Jewelry, one of my biggest weaknesses, this week I discovered these  Zadig Voltaire rings and these Maje bracelets but my great discover is….. these bracelets from bijoux de famille, are they amazing ? aren’t they?? I love them!!!, if they were a bit cheaper I will buy all of them.

My weekend in Lyon

Hi again,

I spent the last weekend in Lyon. I didn’t read anything about this city, I didn’t look for any information or photos before the trip so I didn’t have any expectations, I went with eyes open and I got very good vibrations. It’s a city with many contrasts, different quarters, strong gastronomic culture and lot of history. I didn’t have time to visit all the districts, I stayed in the Vieux Lyon (the city’s oldest district) and I just walked all around this area.

Slide1

The first thing was to find our B&B and a free parking in the old city! Mission impossible!! Luckily we found the last free parking space close to our B&B. We also found the address of our B&B but …….is it correct? I could not find any signs or anything that indicated that was a B&B and the entrance looked a bit scary.

Slide2

We walked in, last floor without elevator (good leg exercise) and Olala!!! It is amazing!! I didn’t expected this!!!

Slide3

Let’s have a quite look around the city and have dinner somewhere, I’m starving!

Slide4

Next day:

Time to explore a bit more the city:

First, we found several open air food markets, this one was in Quai Saint-Antoine.

More info: http://www.lyonalacarte.com/?Lyon-Open-Air-Markets-Saturday

 

Slide1

The whole city smells roses,  this year is the rose festival,  you will find roses in every square and everywhere! Every single bakery in Lyon  was outstanding.

 

Slide2
 

Also I had a bit of time for shopping!

Slide1

At night we went to La Chimere restaurant that it was recommended by previous guesses of our B&B.

Slide2Slide3

And last day! I found the La Fresque de la Bibliothèque de la Cite.

Lyon is one of Europe’s most famous mural cities.

Slide3

look at the first photo, no real! , it’s all paint!!!

Other recommended restaurants:

My outfits for the weekend:

How to wear a skirt- help!

Bonjour!

For this blog I’d like to have your help. I don’t want to write a blog about how to wear a skirt, I want the opposite, I need your help, I am looking for advice. My problem is that I always finish with several skirts in my wardrobe and at the end I never wore them or I did but I always finish wearing with the same top, same shoes, same bags…….. Boring! I need more ideas, I need your ideas.

Let’s do something different here, I will start with 3 skirts I already have and I will show you the way I usually wear them and then we can discuss other possible looks. I’d like to know if you like it or nor, or if you have other better ideas.

Here is the first one. I think  I bought it 2 years ago, and it’s Manoush, a French brand that I mention it already in one of my previous blogs. I like a lot the colors and  the mix of patterns, I love it!!!

IMG_0058 IMG_0052

I have already worn it few times and I have 2 possible looks depending on the season. Usually I wear it in Autumn-Spring time. Here, the  looks:

-with a denim shirt

IMG_0061

-with a high neck pullover

IMG_0059

Usually, I don’t wear it in winter because I don’t have any jacket or coat to combine it and I don’t know how. Maybe with a fur gilet will look nice. Any help here? The bag is Antik Batik a french brand that j’adore!

IMG_0100

 

Depending on the weather I combine with sandals or ankle boots, these are from the Italian brand Ash.

photo-3

 

This one is from ZARA, I bought many years ago and still I wear it every winter and I think I will for many more years, the snake pattern will never be out of fashion. Usually I combine with different black tops, this one is from Carol, and black tights. Bag Antik Batik.

IMG_0054IMG_0066

IMG_0067IMG_0102

Any other suggestions?

 

I combine with 2 different ankle boots (Mango and Ash).

IMG_0107

 

More ideas?

The third one is from H&M. I think cost me only 20 euros! And everybody loves it. At the moment I’m wearing it with a simple basic beige t-shirt  or high neck pullover, both from ZARA.

IMG_0055

I’m planning to use it for summer nights but still I don’t know how I will do it. The necklace is from Follie-follie.

IMG_0064

 

And this’s it for the moment. I’m waiting for your comments, ideas, suggestions…. and I will continue working in the second part of this blog.

I hope you like it.

A la prochaine!
