I've always hated the word 'sexy'. It either came from men who were not very respectful (to put it nicely), or from women who, I now know, never say this as a compliment (if a woman ever tells you you're sexy, go back home and change your outfit).

In fact, I also hate 'glamourous', 'feminine' or the worst of all 'hot'. I never dress to look sexy, and I've always been more inspired by a Jackie than by a Marilyn...

But given the amazing weather we've had in Paris these past few days, I simply can't put too much fabric on my body. I've already tried to wear my leather jacket when it was 32°C, and it wasn't my best idea, especially after I had to run between meetings... Sweaty much ?

Therefore I find myself drawn to simple yet quite revealing clothes, such as this top from Keep Sake the label. In fact, it's perfect for summer : paired with basic ripped jeans from Black Orchid and lace up heels, it shows just the right amount of skin but stays classy, and for once, I wouldn't even mind to be called sexy.

And what about you, what would be the worst thing you could hear about you and your style ?

J'ai toujours détesté le mot 'sexy'. Cela venait soit d'hommes pas très respectueux (pour rester polie), soit de femmes qui, je le sais désormais, ne le disent jamais comme un compliment (si une femme vous dit que vous êtes sexy, rentrez vous changer).

D'ailleurs je déteste aussi 'glamour', 'féminine', ou pire que tout 'hot'. Je ne m'habille jamais pour être sexy, et j'ai toujours été plus inspirée par une Jackie que par une Marilyn...

Mais avec le temps splendide qu'on a eu à Paris ces derniers jours, je ne peux tout simplement pas me résoudre à me couvrir. J'ai déjà essayé de porter une veste en cuir par 32°C, et ça n'a pas été mon idée la plus brillante, quand je me suis vue arriver à des meetings toute transpirante.

C'est pour ça que je suis de plus en plus attirée par des vêtements simples et légers, comme ce top de chez Keep Sake the label. Il est juste parfait pour l'été : associé à un jean troué basique et des talons à lacets, il montre juste ce qu'il faut de peau mais reste classe, et pour une fois, cela ne m'embêterait même pas qu'on me dise que je suis sexy.

Et vous, c'est quoi la pire chose que l'on pourrait dire sur vous et votre style ?

  1. C'est vrai qu'en y réflechissant bien, entendre "sexy" de la bouche d'une femme n'a rien d'un compliment.. mais que tu sacarsme ! En tout cas je te dirais pas que tu es sexy, mais tu as trop la classe ;)
    J'adore ce top, il est super bien structuré !

  9. I like the top! Reveling in such a beautiful way :) On what others think about my style I don't give that too much attention, unless is coming from a friend or somebody who really has a great style. I feel that way too often people that don't have much to say on the matter feel entitle to comment.
    Kisses, Lucy

  17. So true Caroline! If I would hear someone describing my outfit as sexy or hot... Oh my, worst nightmare. ;)
    And you managed great to deal with the warm temperatures while staying chic and showing not too much skin!
