Remember when I told you I’d never wear something one the blog that I wouldn’t wear in real life ? Well, clearly, I have lied as this outfit is not exactly my go-to combo for a Sunday morning ! But my honor is saved as I have already worn this exact same look, for a night out.

However, dark night is not exactly the best moment to take pictures, especially for a blog, so I cheated and chose one of my favorite locations in Paris to shoot this outfit, the Alexandre III bridge.

I wanted to shaken things up a little, and show a more glamourous version of myself, though to be honest, this is not how I feel the most comfortable.

But hey, a blogger’s gotta to do what a blogger’s gotta do am I right ? Sometimes, it’s good to show that you can change your style a little, and some chicness never hurt anyone. Of course I’ll always feel more at ease with my trusted ripped jeans, classic heels and blazers, but even I have to recognize that for the sake of good pictures, you have to dress up a bit.

I am wearing my Topshop black romper, that I have already worn here with boots and a long trench, but today I paired it with my Alexander McQueen grey heels and a Cos masculine coat. This is typically my ‘going-out’ style : quite sexy, but I always make sure I balance things out by adding a structured coat, blazer or leather jacket. I am not afraid to wear hats at night either, as they play down any outfit that might be too revealing.

 Because showing some skin is great, but always staying refined is key.

And fun fact : on the other side of the bridge there was a race… Quite typical : while hundreds of people were running through Paris next to me, I was taking pictures in a very ‘original’ outfit for a grey morning. I’ve never been the sporty one as you can tell !

Vous vous rappelez quand je vous ai dit que je ne porterais jamais quelque chose sur le blog que je ne porterais dans la vraie vie ? Bon apparemment j’ai menti, parce que cette tenue n’est pas exactement mon uniforme du dimanche matin ! Mais l’honneur est sauf, parce que j’ai déjà porté ce même look lors d’une sortie.

Mais la nuit noire n’est pas exactement le meilleur moment pour prendre des photos pour un blog, donc j’ai triché et ai choisi l’un de mes endroits préférés à Paris : le pont Alexandre III.

Je voulais secouer un peu les choses, et montrer peut-être une image plus glamour, même si j’avoue que ce n’est pas comme ça que je me sens la plus à l’aise.

Mais bon, une blogueuse a des obligations non ? Parfois, il est bien de montrer que l’on peut changer de style, et puis un peu de chic n’a jamais fait de mal à personne. Bien sûr, je préférerai toujours mes jeans déchirés, mes talons classiques et mes blazers, mais même moi je dois reconnaître que parfois, on doit faire des efforts pour de belles photos.

Je porte ma combi-short Topshop, que j’ai déjà portée ici, avec des boots et un long trench, mais aujourd’hui je la porte avec mes talons Alexander McQueen gris et un manteau Cos masculin. C’est typiquement ce que je porte le soir : assez sexy, mais je fais attention à bien équilibrer ma tenue en ajoutant un manteau structuré, un blazer ou une veste en cuir. Je n’hésite pas non plus à porter des chapeaux la nuit, ils dédramatisent une tenue trop ‘découverte’.

Parce que montrer un peu de peau, c’est bien, mais rester digne c’est mieux !

Et histoire marrante : de l’autre côté du pont, il y avait une course à pied… Typique : pendant que des centaines de personnes couraient à travers Paris à côté de moi, je prenais des photos dans une tenue pour le moins originale pour un matin gris d’octobre. Je n’ai jamais été très sportive comme vous pouvez le voir !

  1. I love the androgynous feel of your coat! I prefer m
    "masculine" outfits for a night out. My favourite is le smoking from Burberry which I also wear for work (plus a man's shirt for daytime) (in the evening I put on silk slip from lingerie store, I've never been brave enough to go shirtless and braless for the evening), statement earrings or a cuff and a clutch. I think it looks fairly effortless. Dresses can sometimes look rather contrived. ..
    Great outfit but for the brave! :)

  13. I'm always amazed by how you manage to take your photos without people appearing in the photos, it's a skill you've mastered on your blog! ;) This is yet another incredible look on you and great find of the Alexander McQueen sandals, I'm also a huge fan of The Outnet! Also, you make this Topshop romper look so chic and expensive!

    You are so right with the " a blogger's gotta do what a blogger's gotta do" comment and I think it's great that it forces you to step out of your comfort zone!
