This look is a good example of what I usually wear when September comes. After months of heat, denim shorts and cute dresses, I am in full fall mood, hence the trousers, jeans, jackets, pumps...

This time of the year is my favorite, as my birthday is just around the corner, and fashion is much more interesting. You can layer again, you don't have to worry about melting down, accessories such as hats and scarves are all you need to be stylish, and wherever you go, you notice how beautiful nature is, with the fallen leaves and soft light.

I think it's the perfect time to make big plans, projects for the future, and dress the part. You know what they say 'don't take yourself too seriously, but be serious about what you do'. In a world where it's not that easy to be a) a woman, and b) a fashionista, sometimes you need to be a little more conservative than usual, and forget about ripped boyfriend jeans or crop tops. 

It's not very fashion-forward I admit, but it feels good to be a little more grown-up, and put on a pair of chic black pants, white top, and turquoise pumps and bag. Because yes, it's hard to arrive at a meeting dressed in full 'The Devil Wears Prada' mode, especially when it's about something that has nothing to do with fashion. I'm sure we've all had those awkward looks 'what in the world is she wearing' when you're the only one arriving at a meeting/party/simple gathering in heels or over-the-top outfit.

And toning it down is also perfect as Fashion Week is coming, and I need to save my more extravagant looks for it.

Do you also need to change your style in order to be taken seriously, or don't you want to make any compromises when it comes to fashion ?

Ce look est un bon exemple de ce que je porte habituellement en septembre. Après les mois d'été qui ne furent que shorts en jean et robes, place aux vestes, pantalons, jeans, escarpins...

Cette période de l'année est ma préférée, parce que mon anniversaire approche, et la mode redevient intéressante. Vous pouvez accumuler les accessoires, reporter des chapeaux et des écharpes, vous n'avez pas à vous inquiéter de la chaleur, et partout où vous allez, la nature vous rappelle à quel point elle est belle, avec les feuilles qui tombent, et la lumière douce de fin de journée.

C'est d'ailleurs la période parfaite pour faire des plans, des gros projets pour votre futur, et vous habiller en conséquence. Vous savez ce qu'on dit 'ne vous prenez pas au sérieux, mais soyez sérieux dans ce que vous faites'. Dans un monde où il n'est pas aisé d'être a) une femme, et b) une fashionista, parfois il vous faut être un peu moins extravagante que d'habitude, et oublier les jeans troués ou autres crop tops.

Ce n'est certes pas très 'fashion forward', mais c'est aussi cool d'être plus adulte, et de porter un pantalon noir chic, un top blanc, et des chaussures et un sac turquoises. Parce que oui, c'est compliqué d'arriver à un meeting en mode 'The Devil Wears Prada', notamment quand la personne en face de vous ne comprend rien à la mode. Je suis sûre qu'on a toutes déjà eu ces regards un brin condescendants 'mais elle porte quoi là', quand on est la seule à arriver à un rendez-vous/soirée/simple meeting en talons ou look un peu poussé.

Et puis, la jouer plus soft est parfait, parce que la Fashion Week arrive, et je garde mes looks plus originaux pour ça.

Vous aussi vous devez changer parfois de style pour qu'on vous prenne au sérieux, ou vous ne voulez pas faire de compromis avec la mode ?

  7. Indeed, Carolyn. I've compartmentalized my working life, writing life, gym rat life, fashion blogger life, home remodeling life.....It's hard, I think to have a style when you have a life with so many roles in it. I prefer to dress for the role. Do love this look, very work appropriate and the blast of color on the heels is terrific.

  8. Lovely outfit, you look so chic!

  9. Je trouve ce pantalon très chic! J'ai parfois beaucoup de mal à "calmer le jeu", comme je suis petite, j'ai peur que les pantalons soient trop longs, trop larges, et je n'ai plus d'escarpins, j'en cherche de nouveaux, mais la trentaine arrivant, j'essaye malgré tout d'être plus chic, plus femme tout en gardant ma petite touche :)

    Gros bisous
