Perforated Matter

Hey y'all !
I definitely felt surprised when I saw how vibrant and colorful these photos turned out to be. You can definitely sense Spring in all it's pure beauty through these pictures. I opted for quite a casual look this morning. Well, to be honest, I'm leaving for London tomorrow morning and I didn't feel like wearing the clothes I saved for my trip. Although it doesn't seem like it, today was quite chilly and I'm glad I wore a long sleeved jacket. I love the perforated details all over it. It makes it so unique and unexpected. This look is quite colorless but you know me, I'm all about a pop of color. This burgundy bag is just what was missing.

Tomorrow is Easter weekend. My family and I have loads of things planned out already. I'm really looking forward to going to London and catching up with my family there. I'll definitely be shooting some outfits. If you want to keep up with what I'm up to, don't forget to follow me on instagram.
Wishing you all a fun weekend !

Colors of Berlin

Flower vendor on the streets of Berlin - Attempted to picture the hipsters of Berlin                        
Very typical germanesque shoes - American Dinner in the Jewish quarter
Had to be a tourist and pose inside the fascinating Holocaust Memorial - A close up of the breathtaking Reichstag cupola
Coffee shops everywhere - Details of the Reichstag's front wall
Hamburger Bahnhof Museum - Holocaust Memorial

Here are a few pictures of my favorite places in Berlin. I had never been there and didn't know what to expect from but I can tell you I got well surprised. The vibe here is very different from Geneva or even London and New York. Everything was so different yet just what I love about a city. The little coffee shops, colorful buildings, galleries, caterers, and flower vendors were simply perfect not to mention the overwhelming choice of food. I definitely want to go back with some friends when I can. I feel like I only saw half of it. Berlin, you'll be missed!

Shades of Blue

Hey y'all !
I'm feeling rather excited as I'm leaving for a week in Berlin in only 2 days. I have never been there but I've only heard good things about this town. Some say it's very hipster and I also heard it's quite the capital of minimal music. I guess I'm up with that! Definitely let me know if you have any recommendations on places I should go visit.
I hope you all had a great week. I actually can't believe how fast it has gone by. It's like I blinked and it was Friday. So scary! Lately I've been dressing rather casual and keeping it comfortable for those early Spring days. Blue has been my definite my color of choice and I've been going back to my trusty pair of New Balance that I find really go well with this pinstriped zip skirt. 
Wishing you all a good weekend !

Cream Sunday

Hello lovelies !
I hope you all had an awesome week. Though it's been sunny and very warm, I felt so overwhelmed with the amount of work I had on my plate. Nevertheless I managed to take good care of everything. Today felt like a typical March Spring day-quite breezy and grey with sun appearances throughout the day. My family and I went for an afternoon stroll around town and ended up having multiple servings of Kusmi Tea at home. 
I recently found this slightly cream white blazer. It's definitely a timeless piece that I know will come a lot in handy this season. I opted for a casual yet spiced up look. This go-to denim skater skirt is a life saver. I love the feminine yet laid back look it gives. I tucked in this grid blouse and went for my trusty patent black derbies. And voila ! That to me is the perfect combination for a laid back Sunday well-spent with the family.

ModCloth Uniquely You Challenge

ModCloth Uniquely You Challenge
I recently got contacted by the lovely Amy Hirt to take part of the ModCloth Uniquely You challenge on Polyvore. Of course I said yes ! They gave me one required item from their current store collection and my role was to style it my way using up to seven other stylish pieces currently sold on their website. This week's mandatory item was the Shoreline Memories Dress. To me, this piece screams the movie "The Young Girls of Rochefort", starring Catherine Deveuve and Françoise Dorléac. I instantly got inspired by the A-line shape, the pop of dark yellow and the grid pattern. The hole aspect of this dress really translate that movie to me. As it's quite a retro piece, I of course wanted to stay true to my personal style by adding a slightly more modern touch to it. As a general fact I love playing around with vintage and more modern pieces. It's all about finding the right balance and not overdoing it. You wouldn't think of it but this piece is very versatile and adaptable to anyone.

Modcloth definitely has a variety of cute dresses for any type of occasions. You might have realized by now my love for checkered and grid prints. I love the timeless simplicity of this design/print, it suits everyone and is definitely here to stay. I actually found a personal favorite on their website. The cut-outs make it very spring and summer appropriate and the sheath silhouette definitely translate the signature Modcloth retro vibe.
