L’amour & la nostalgie were in the air yesterday! At 91 Aznavour’s voice, wit and very French sense of humor are still intact!
PS: kudos to that random stylish woman who wore this coat with an amazing in-built squirt design! Smack in the French-Love theme!
Bubbled my way to blurry by sipping on my first guilt-free drink since Pregnancy #2! Yup I’m pretty much done with breastfeeding! I have a feeling I’ll have a couple more blurry London nights out coming up to celebrate the end of my abstention!
I’m skipping the sun ☀️ tanning 👙today and having fresh carrot juice to boost that beach skin glow ✨ Carrots are rich in beta carotene a yellow/orange pigment that gives warmth to skin color. Think cancer free + healthy and head to the juice bar!
Tassels, tiebacks, bows, toile and fer forgé…Pulling together our new nest in London has overtaken my creative attention and it sure is reflecting in my outfits!
Hanging out in the Victoria and Albert Museum I was reminded of the creative ways 18th Century fashionistas showcased their silhouettes while adding sophistication and story to their looks. While tight body outfits definitely have their place in a woman’s wardrobe, playing with loose effects (in the right proportions of course!), can throw in a unique edge and flow to your look and when contrasted with tight closing in the rest of the outfit can still highlight the hard work you’ve put into your silhouette. So don’t be afraid to mix it up and if you’re in London and want to try on the effect, head to the Victoria and Albert Museum where you can try on a wide petticoat… Now of course, you won’t be streetstyling the 18th Century look (although it would be priceless to see someone try that in a crowded city! Weddings however are fair game… done that! 😉 ) but what you can definitely do is loosen your streestyle looks with wide-leg trousers or harem pants…
Right: Adjusting dress volume to nowadays city life where living spaces are shrinking compared to Left: Mantua and petticoat illustrating the grandest style of court dress in the 1740’s and 1750’s in England. This mantua is a display of decoration in Rococo embroidery along with patterned silks and printed textiles. The dress can be seen at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
My favorite on the run, comfy and passe-partout outfits
From day ☀️ dress to date night ❤️ dress…With the right accessories and shoes you can make the most out of your casual dress!
Not that I always have the choice! #embraceyourdiaperbag
Quick Style Tip: Try to balance functionality with a neutral / soft colored or minimally patterned diaper bag, flexible enough to fit with more than one outfit! I know it’s hard to think of your diaper bag as another fashion accessory but if it’s going along for the streetstyle ride, it might as well fit in!
Spring cleaning is coming up and some old favorites might just not make the cut this time around to make way for the new silhouette…
The Honolulu & Kaua’i rich palette of colors, flora and flavors are relaxing, detoxing and inspiring… add on top of that Honolulu’s strong Asian influence and you’re in a fashionista’s creative paradise!
