Okay, you caught me... I am almost dressed exactly the same way as yesterday. So not 'fashion blogger' of me ! But frankly, I am not your typical blogger. I laugh about things like this, and will never understand why you can't wear the same things twice. 

Always find something new, always be original, it's great when you're a famous stylist/model/streetstyle star, but is this really realistic ? How many women, how many of you, can change their clothes and accessories every single day ? I know I can't, and I'm probably not the only one.

As a blogger, you're supposed to inspire people, but how can it be inspirational when someone's monthly budget is more than your annual rent ? Of course, I wear designer accessories too, but I don't want to buy millions of clothes just to be able to show you a different outfit everyday. That wouldn't be 'me', and I believe you wouldn't like it either.

What's best, in my honest opinion, is to show you how to re-wear things, always in a new and unexpected way. Wear the same clothes, but re-invent yourself everyday, that would be my mantra. Be ladylike one day, sporty the next, boho, retro or even grungy sometimes. 

There are some fashion bloggers out there who always have the best items : fresh from the runway, wearing head to toe designer, having pieces I would never dream of owning. But while I love some of them who have an unique style, there are others who are just 'too much' in my opinion. What's the point of throwing all the things you just got on you, if you don't add your personal touch ?

So yes, I am wearing my Valentino beloved booties, ripped jeans from Topshop and my Maison Michel fedora, but I've added this beautiful cream cape from Alice by Temperley from The Outnet (seriously, I had to wear it right away even though the temperature are NOT light jackets appropriate because it looks so luxurious and chic !), and of course, that Birkin that I would own right away if I could (oh wait, you can !).

I have to ask, would you rather see me dress up differently every day, or are you happy to see my daily style, the way a Parisienne dresses every day ?

-------------------

Okay vous m'avez eue... Je suis habillée quasi de la même façon qu'hier. Tellement pas digne d'une fashion blogueuse ! Mais bon, je suis loin d'être une blogueuse type. Je ris souvent des clichés, et ne comprendrai jamais pourquoi on ne peut porter la même chose plusieurs fois.

Toujours trouver quelque chose de nouveau, d'original, c'est bien quand vous êtes une styliste/mannequin/star su streetstyle, mais est-ce vraiment réaliste ? Combien de femmes, combien parmi vous, peuvent vraiment changer de vêtements et d'accessoires tous les jours ? Je sais que je ne peux pas, et je ne suis certainement pas la seule dans ce cas.

En tant que blogueuse, vous êtes censée inspirer les gens, mais cela peut-il être inspirant quand le budget mensuel de quelqu'un équivaut à votre salaire annuel ? Alors certes, j'ai des pièces de créateur, mais je n'achète pas des millions d'habits juste pour pouvoir vous montrer des tenues différentes tous les jours. Ca ne me correspondrait pas, et je ne pense pas que vous aimeriez tant que ça non plus.

Le mieux, selon moi, c'est de vous montrer comment reporter les choses que vous possédez déjà, toujours d'une manière nouvelle et un peu inattendue. Portez les mêmes fringues, mais ré-inventez vous chaque jour, ça pourrait être mon mantra. Soyez chic un jour, sporty le suivant, parfois boho, rétro, ou même grunge.

Certaines blogueuses ont toujours les meilleurs sacs, chaussures, vestes, saison après saison : des looks venant tout droit du runway, de la tête aux pieds en designer, portant des pièces faisant partie de mes rêves les plus dingues. Mais même si j'adore beaucoup de ces filles, parfois je trouve que cela fait 'too much'. Quel est l'intérêt de porter tout ce que vous venez d'acheter/que l'on vient de vous donner, si vous n'ajoutez pas votre touche personnelle ?

Donc oui, je porte mes boots Valentino que j'adore, un jean déchiré Topshop et mon chapeau Maison Michel, mais j'ai rajouté cette cape Alice by Temperley via The Outnet (non mais sérieusement, elle est tellement sublime que j'ai dû la porter tout de suite, même si le temps ne s'y prêtait pas du tout, car elle est si chic et luxueuse !), et bien sûr, ce Birkin, que j'achèterais à l'instant si je pouvais (oh mais attendez, vous pouvez... !)

Je dois vous demander, est-ce que vous préféreriez me voir changer de tenue chaque jour, ou alors vous appréciez un style de tous les jours, d'une Parisienne normale ?

  1. I love the way you keep coming out with new combinations of the same clothes. It's honest and realistic, and most of all- inspiring. I have a limited wardrobe because I'd rather save up for a quality item than go crazy in H&M every Saturday. So in answer to your question-be yourself! :)

  3. How you reuses clothes is one of the things I like most about your blog. I definitely haven't the budget to wear different clothes every single day.That's one of the things I like to achieve on my blog as well.
    And lovely outfit by the way :)

  4. Je te suis sur le fait de faire usage des mêmes pièces mais dans des styles différents.

  5. Tu as bien raison! C'est interressant de voir comment on peut porter une même pièce de différentes manières. On est peu à pouvoir se permettre de porter un vêtement qu'une seule fois!

  6. Ce que je préfère voir en allant sur ton blog c'est ta manière personnelle de porter tes vêtements, même si tu ne changes pas tous les jours de tenue, ce n'est pas cela que j'attends de ton blog mais plutôt le "jeu" que tu fais avec tes vêtements!. Parfois tu seras chic, d'autres jours tu auras un style plus "normalisé", peu importe c'est avec les détails que tu apporteras ta "french touch", et c'est mieux ainsi non? Bon WE Caroline et prends soin de toi!

Hope you have a great friday and a great weekend ahead of you girlie! P.S. think you would adore the Layered Lace Hem Sweater outfit we shared on the blog earlier today!

  10. Totally agree with you in this point! I love to see what others are wearing on a daily basis and in real life, not what they composed specially and only for the blog.

    Anyways, the cape is so cool! Loved how you combined it with the Birkin.

    Love, L

  14. I love your style, and I especially love that its so cohesive. There have been a number of bloggers that I admired only to see them change their style to "designer everything" once they've become popular. I don't follow those bloggers anymore, its refreshing to see someone that is true to their signature style. Keep up the fabulous posts!

  17. I totally agree with you on this point! I find it far more interesting to see how people restyle basic/statement pieces in several ways rather than wearing something new every single day!

  19. I couldn't agree with you more! I think people would be shocked if they saw my closet. Someone who writes a fashion blog for a living, it's ridiculously tiny. I hate having too many things and prefer to only have "gems" in my closet that I wear over and over again. Does it mean I'm always dressed the same? No, but I continue using the same pieces. Just in different ways. I also think it's much harder to be creative when wearing the same pieces and creating different looks from them, compared to always having brand new items on.

    But as you said, me too, I'm a normal person and want to inspire "normal people" :)

    Have a great weekend Caro!

  22. j'ai commencé à te suivre depuis quelques temps et j'apprécie de voir tes pièces de créateurs portées de différentes façons. En effet, c est réaliste. On peut dire qu'il y a grosso modo 2 catégories principales de bloggeuses, celles qui en vivent et sont des porte marques et celles passionnées de mode qui affirment leur style avec ce qu elles ont dans leur armoire!au bout du compte; est ce avoir du style ( et être en avance sur tout le monde), que de porter les vêtements de designer prêtés la veille du défilé et arriver lookées au défilé avec les pièces phares des créateurs?? je ne crois pas. En tout cas, ça en met plein la vue!!!!. Ne pas perdre son âme et garder son style, c'est ça le véritable enjeu....
    Keep up with good work! you do great and what a fabulous outfit today!!!. We see you through your clothes and not the other way around;-).

  23. I totally agree with what you wrote. And I also think that this will be positive influence to others who are reading your blog. I am defiantly going to shear this post, because I think the others should also read what you sad in this post.
    Also, I really like the outfit, specially the shoes.
