I am an urban girl at heart. This may sound crazy, but I love the noise, the people, the rush, and I even dare to say the subway (well, maybe not...). It's quite funny actually because even though I was born in a relatively big city, I was raised between a lake and the mountains (in Annecy). The weekends were spent skiing, and every day after school, we played in our garden or in the pool, depending on the time of the year.

Well, that's not entirely true : while I loved (and still enjoy very much) skiing, I was never the one who loved the outdoors. I was always in my room, reading every book I could find in my parents' library, and was not an animal lover like most of my friends. 

I knew I could never live a life outside a big city, even though I totally get why people may want a quieter life. I mean, city life can be overwhelming at times, but what can I say, I never feel happier than when I am walking in Paris, even with the pollution, the tourists, the unpleasant taxi drivers and the insane traffic.

My life is very '20-something urban girl' too. I work a lot, and when I don't, I love going out, to eat sushis or discover new restaurants, I love shopping too of course (even when I am on a ban !), and I always meet my girls for a brunch or drinks. I don't sleep much (who has time to sleep anyway ?), but I figure that if I don't do all these things now, when will I ?

When we shot those pics, at first I didn't like the location : too many cars in the street ! But then I thought it reflected my lifestyle, where I live and what I love, and in the end I just fell in love with this photoshoot... The light, the cobblestones, and my outfit, which is quite urban itself : the leather jacket, silk shirt, pumps, it bag and ripped jeans are basics every girl l know (living in the city or not !) owns and wears all the time.

Because urban or not, fashion lovers speak the same language all over the world !

Je suis sans aucun doute une fille de la ville. Cela peut sembler dingue, mais j'aime le bruit, la foule, le rush, et oserais-je même le dire, le métro (bon peut-être pas jusque- là...). C'est assez marrant, parce que même si je suis née dans une ville relativement grande, j'ai longtemps vécu entre lac et montagnes, à Annecy. On passait nos weekends à skier, et tous les jours après l'école, on s'amusait dans le jardin ou dans la piscine, selon la période de l'année.

Bon en fait ce n'est pas tout-à-fait vrai : même si j'adorais (j'adore toujours !) skier, je n'étais jamais la fille qui appréciait le grand air, au contraire : je préférais la solitude de ma chambre et m'évadais avec tous les livres qui me passaient sous la main, et contrairement à la plupart de mes copines, les animaux et moi, ce n'était pas trop ça (sauf depuis très récemment avec mon chien que vous avez pu apercevoir sur Instagram).

J'ai toujours su que je n'aurais pas pu vivre autre part que dans une (très) grande ville, même si je comprends totalement que la majorité des gens préfèrent une vie plus calme. C'est vrai, cette vie urbaine peut devenir too much parfois, mais bon, je ne me sens jamais aussi heureuse que quand je marche à Paris, même avec la pollution, les touristes, les chauffeurs de taxi désagréables et les embouteillages.

Ma vie est d'ailleurs totalement celle d'une citadine de 20 et quelques années. Je travaille beaucoup, et j'adore sortir au resto ou manger des sushis, faire du shopping évidemment (même quand je ne devrais pas), et retrouver mes amies pour un brunch ou des verres. Je ne dors vraiment pas assez (qui a le temps de dormir de toute façon ?), mais je me dis que si je ne fais pas toutes ces choses maintenant, quand le ferai-je ?

Quand on a pris ces photos, au début je n'étais pas fan du lieu : trop de voitures dans la rue ! Mais finalement, je trouve que cela reflète bien ma vie, ce que je fais et ce que j'aime, et finalement, je suis tombée amoureuse de ce photoshoot... La lumière, les pavés, et ma tenue, qui est typiquement urbaine aussi : le perf, la chemise en soie, les escarpins, le it bag et le jean troué sont les basiques indispensables de la garde-robe d'une fille (qu'elle vive à la ville ou pas d'ailleurs !).

Parce que finalement, les fashionistas parlent toutes le même langage, celui de la mode !

  2. I love the color combination of cream jacket and taupe sulk shirt-its elegant yet the ripped jeans give it an edge. I love the location and the light on your photos. Paris is the most beautiful city in the world. I'm a child of a big city, too.I love twilight time when the daylight is not completely gone but the lights are slready on...it holds promise of an evening ahead. When I go away to the countryside it's the lights of London that I miss the most!

  7. Amazing look! I think the setting is perfect for this post. You are so right, the cars and city street completely reflects your urban lifestyle. I grew up in the country, but could never go back to living away from the city :) I couldn't live without my sushi!

  15. J'aime bien entendre des parisiens dirent qu'ils aiment leur vie de citadin :) Moi qui suis de Montpellier, je pense passer par la ville Paris professionnellement parlant et j'entends tellement souvent " ah Paris c'est l'enfer" que ça peut faire peur... ^^

  17. First of all, kudos for wearing those heels on a cobbled street. I would have broken my legs...haha...and second, great look! Very reflective of your lifestyle :) I feel the same way about the city. For 16 years I lived in a tiny village, and then moved to the big city...I could never imagine moving back!

  26. Lovely look! I think your location looks perfect for your style and for you after reading that description! I'm an outdoors girl at heart & I tend to find little pockets of trees in my urban city to shoot all my outfit shots. Funny, I guess our choice of locations reveals more than I ever thought! Although wherever you shoot, light is the most important and you found perfect lighting! xx
