The morning report

Pin It Now!

With newspapers becoming digitalized and magazines appearing only online, it's a rare but precious occasion to observe someone reading the morning paper. A tradition that was once exerced before the workday began in every cafe accross France has suddenly been privatized. Take your paper outside, where the world is buzzing around you.

Workwear, for working.

Pin It Now!

Everyone deserves a little break, the most enjoyable moment of most work days when colleagues can get out, have some fresh air and a little afternoon pick-me-up. We can't get enough of workwear in all of its glorious forms!

8 heads in a duffle bag.

Pin It Now!

A big duffle bag and a pair of boots may sound like your average army gear but they're super stylish and incredibly charming. There is a reason we all love uniforms, the sense of power and ruggedness brought on my the military combo is sure to please.

You know you're a 90s kid if...

Pin It Now!

Light denim isn't just for summer this season. With the strong 90s revival that is stretching from garments to music to interior design we're really feeling this head-to-toe in denim, over sized shirts and  flannel vibe. Keep it up and keep it classy in that trucker hat.

Monday morning with a jolt.

Pin It Now!

On a Monday, I'll make an impression. I'll take my favorite print and blow it up, I'll take my hair and make it bigger and I'll show everyone who I am so that my light can shine on them throughout the week.

Sunday night blues.

Pin It Now!

Sunday blues are hard. The weekend comes to an end and the fun is over. We hope you spent your precious time off with the ones you love and you walked home with the sun setting behind you, it's the perfect way to ensure the work week will fly by so you can get back to the park.

Ride your bike today.

Pin It Now!

A bicycle is really a very practical mode of transportation. It doesn't use petrol, you can weave through traffic, strap a market crate to the back of it to store your invaluables and get to where you need to be while getting in your daily excerise. We believe in the bicycle, we understand that while cars may be faster, warmer and a little more comfortable, the bicycle allows you to take in all of what your city has to offer at a slower, more enjoyable pace.

Backpack, for your back.

Pin It Now!

The indispensable, the necessary and probably the most comfortable way for all the guys in our lives to carry their belongings: the backpack. 

As much as girls will tell you they loathe this particular accessory, remiscing on middle school days that were filled with Jansports and Eastpacks, they all prefer to stowe their stuff into totes or handbags. 

Ladies, we are deeply mistaken. 

When you take your boys backpack and run around for a few hours you will feel that that tight shoulder pain you've grown to know and learned to forget is suddenly gone. Gone with it is that constantly slightly curved posture, that strained feeling in your arm. Backpacks are a genius concept. 

The only problem is they look so fetching in vintage leather on men and so positively hideous on their female counterparts.

Follow the yellow brick road!

Pin It Now!

A little girl in a mustard coat, what could be more stylish? Yellow isn't just for kids but this very grown up jacket looks darling on a miniature person.

Take your dog to work day.

Pin It Now!

Have you taken your doggy to work today? 

There is something so comforting about a pooch in the workplace. Firstly it takes all of the attention off of you, also, it evokes that old world hunting vibe that you can accentuate with a very large cigar. Dogs also give you a reason to take a longer break, have a stroll mid-day and no one underminds the man who has his dog next to his desk, if they let him bring a furry friend, he must be of great importance. 

That's right, whether you're rushing home to see your best bud or you just couldn't stay away from your critter from 9 to 5, please walk your dog in a suit, it's amazing really.

Out of the blue.

Pin It Now!

With this utterly amazing warm weekend, we feel the need to pull out brighter colors. Our favorite fall bright has to be this electric blue worn in pairs. The touches of red bring out that vibrancy so specific to this color.

I walk in there with my orange velvet leggings...

Pin It Now!

This week I'm making Pomanders, spicing up my little home with orangy goodness to bring in the Holiday spirit. With Thanksgiving around Halloween just having passed, we can't get enough of the rich orange goodness we're seeing all around us. Between a pumpkin and a brown, it's just the right shade.

I found it a great anecdote, lipstick, mirrors and hairspray!

Pin It Now!

Tweed in the street, red on the lips and those glasses. Look to the older generations to construct your wardrobe.

Get into the habit of looking smart.

Pin It Now!

School uniforms are for many a hard and limiting aspect of their every day lives. For me, it's always been a dream to have one. I've always seen something so special about that "put together" look a school uniform brings and how ones individuality is actually accentuated in the uniform: everything that falls out of place is brought forward demonstrating your own, or your parents', personality. Uneven socks and polka dot bows are incredible and the uniform provides the perfect canvas for these.

And then there were those Sundays when Papa dressed me and Mommy said I looked like a clown.

Pin It Now!

There is something priceless and enchanting about the father daughter relationship. A dad is caring and loving, protecting and fun, but most of all a dad has no idea how to dress his little princess so most father daughter looks are like this one: entirely comical.

How hard did you Fall for her?

Pin It Now!

Fall looks for boys and girls. Belted sweater dresses are soft and comfortable, made fashion forward and urban by studded boots and big shades. For the boys in our lives it's paisley scarves with deep saffron pants worn with a pompom hat, what could be more endearing?

Can you paint with all of the colors of the wind?

Pin It Now!

Indian Jaquards are here to stay. They've made slight appearance the past few seasons but walking through Le Bon Marche today I realized that they were everywhere. Since my mother is pretty much a hippy was too young to ever really be one, she's been sporting these native American inspired gems for as long as I can remember. Once again, here I am, wishing I could raid her closet. 

What we want aren't the light, mainstream cotton jaquards but the real scratchy, heavy, smell-like-a-wet-dog-in-the-rain ones, and those, my friend, were not to be found. 

Let the hunt begin. 

Side note: everyone is also wearing these crepe wedges which are great because they feel like slippers but in essence this is no news at all.
