THE EDIT Black suit & Veja trainers

THE EDIT: Black suit & Veja trainers

THE EDIT (previously named #weeklyfashionedit) is to inspire you to put together a minimalist wardrobe with fashion staples. I have recently stored my Spring/Summer clothes into a few of these stackable storage boxes. I’m ready now to re-organise my wardrobe with things to wear in Autumn/Winter. Emptying your drawers at the start of each season will help you to see the things you want to keep or get rid of. It’s like a blank canvas. Suddenly, you’re facing an empty wardrobe and it’s much easier to put back things you really want. “70% staple pieces, 30% on-trend pieces is the ratio I’m aiming for, in my wardrobe this year” Always aiming to be as minimalist as I can, I’m aiming to have fashion staples with a few on-trend items to complete the look. I want pieces that will last me for a few years. Clothes that truly reflect my style and will work for a few seasons. Based on its cost per wear, these Beckett sneakers by Isabel Marant for instance, have proven to be a great …

#weekly fashion edit: Chelsea boots

#weekly fashion edit

I discovered Cecilie Copenhagen last year on Instagram and bought this gorgeous Topanga top in black which is unbelievably sexy and stylish. As the new A/W17 collection has the just hit the stores, I spotted this beautiful Beat round neck cotton dress (1) which would be really easy to wear through several seasons. “Iconic since the 60s, Chelsea boots are a great staple for Autumn & Winter” Rather than pairing it with a pair of flat pumps, I would break the mould and wear them with a pair of classic Chelsea boots (5). I really like the feeling of wearing strong, solid boots, especially when the rest of my outfit is feminine and I’m still in love with the Chelsea boots I got last year in Paris, from Anthology Paris . There is also a few sizes left on Smallable. Unfortunately, they are khaki but sometimes when a colour is dark enough, you can get away with applying dark/black shoe cream. Church’s has also some fantastic brogues and boots for a masculine look. Regardless of where you get yours from, if you …

#weekly fashion edit

I love fashion… I enjoy shopping once in a while. I clear my wardrobe and cupboards regularly (you can read my 15 practical, helpful tips to declutter your home) but last year I had a real overdose of consumerism just before Xmas. I know it sounds like a complete cliché and the kind of words of wisdom we find on Pinterest but after the difficult year that 2016 was, I wanted to focus on collecting moments rather than things. The ongoing“buy, buy, buy” message coming from TV ads, e-news, magazines and blogs made me angry, frustrated and unhappy. I was a real Grinch :-) I could not rejoice into the pre-Xmas frenzy and the underlying message that happiness was to be found in the latest iPhone or a new it-bag. Have you ever felt like this?? As such my weekly fashion feature “5 Things I Want Right Now!” that many of you loved, started rubbing me the wrong way so I just stopped doing it. It took me 10 months, a blog revamp and some of you telling me you used …

Leather trousers I outfit perfection

There was a very good (and rare) interview of Emmanuelle Alt in Stella magazine recently and this photo where she looked amazing, wearing leather trousers.As I bought myself a pair, I’ve put together a list of the 10 coolest leather trousers out there just for you. 1/ I’m loving these Oak with zip details leather sweat pants from Liberty. Sadly I know they wouldn’t suit my figure, however they would be perfect for my friend Catherine who is tall and wear leather trousers and red lipstick like a fashion icon.2/ These from Mango, have a similar cut and are a lot more affordable.2/ The ones I really want are these Liv leather leggings, which are made of soft stretch leather and would look very chic with any of my linen t-shirts from Zara.3/ If you’re slim, these Acne black skinny leather trousers are the way to go.4/ If you are super slim, try these J.Brand super skinny leather trousers.5/ More into style and comfort, check out the Aldrige leather trousers from Baukjen (30% OFF)6/ Go wild and make a statement with these …

the jumpsuit | outfit perfection

Given how many jumpsuits I have in my wardrobe, I thought it was time to write about it!I don’t think I ever found anything so versatile. It’s feminine, practical, easy to accessorise and very sexy with the right shoes. © Horses Atelier The working mum in me, probably wears them a bit too often now (hence the required ownership of several) but frankly they go with everything! So here is a round up of my favourite models and shoes to go with it. Plain Jumpsuits1/ My latest acquisition is this jumpsuit in blue denim. I was actually trying something on at Scotch & Soda when Elodie emailed me a photo of the jumpsuits she was trying in Paris and I ended up ordering it online in the changing room. Big LOVE! The fabric is soft, light and I love the denim colour for the Summer. 2/ For a more stylish look, this black Shreela jumpsuit by Malene Birger is one of my fav. It looks very chic and will perfect with any of clutches I mentioned here.3/ This Elisa jersey jumpsuit by …
