You can't even know how cool it is for me to write these words... But first, let me wish you a very Happy New Year, I hope all your dreams will come true !

It's been weird not to post anything on my blog these past two weeks, as, even since I started it, I had never spent more than three days without updating it.

So what happened ? To be honest, I needed a break, for several reasons : first, I was studying for my exams, and I didn't have much time on my hands. Then, I decided to spend my free time with my friends and new boyfriend, as I usually never get to see them enough during the year. And finally, the biggest reason was that I needed to step back for a little while and think about my blog. 

This past year and a half, I devoted a lot of my time to Pardon My Obsession, and it's been an amazing journey. But it also came with not-so-great experiences, as I'm sure you all know the blogging world can be quite cruel. I've been told certain unpleasant things, a brand decided to pick another girl for a nice project, or I've been disappointed by some people. 

Therefore, the last few weeks, I wasn't even sure to continue my blog, as I was wondering if it was worth it. I needed to remind myself why I started it in the first place, aka 'fashion'. And boy, do I still love fashion ! 

I love sharing my view with you, I love thinking about new trends, I love looking at my fellow Parisian girls who have amazing style. I think I just needed to feel inspired again, to start posting with passion and pleasure again.

I promise I won't let you down again, and get ready for some new things on Pardon My Obsession. In the meantime, here's what I was wearing a couple of weeks ago : one of the chicest coats I own, from Pearl and Rubies, Valentino booties, and classic Hermès accessories. Back to the essentials, for my style and for my blog :)

Vous ne pouvez pas vous imaginer comme j'apprécie d'écrire ces mots... Tout d'abord, laissez-moi vous souhaiter une très belle nouvelle année, j'espère que vos rêves se réaliseront !

Cela a été étrange de ne rien poster sur le blog ces deux dernières semaines, parce que depuis que je l'ai lancé, je n'avais pas passé plus de trois jours sans le mettre à jour.

Alors que s'est-il passé ? Pour être honnête, j'avais besoin d'un break, pour plusieurs raisons : d'abord, j'étais en révisions, et je n'avais pas tant de temps que ça. Ensuite, j'ai décidé de profiter de mes amis et de mon nouveau copain, et de ne pas tout le temps penser à mes deadlines ou à mes posts du lendemain. Et enfin et surtout, j'avais envie de prendre du recul par rapport au blog, et de me poser certaines questions.

Cette année, j'ai consacré beaucoup de temps à Pardon My Obsession, et cela a été magique. Mais j'ai également vécu quelques expériences pas si agréables, parce que je suis sûre que vous savez que la blogosphère peut être un monde cruel. On m'a dit certaines choses blessantes, une marque a décidé de choisir une autre fille pour un projet cool, et j'ai été déçue par quelques filles.

Du coup, ces dernières semaines, je n'étais pas sûre de continuer le blog, me demandant si ça en valait la peine. J'avais besoin de penser à la raison pour laquelle je l'avais lancé, à savoir la mode. Et mon Dieu, qu'est-ce que j'en suis encore folle, de la mode !

J'adore partager ma vision avec vous, j'adore penser aux nouvelles tendances, j'adore observer les Parisiennes aux styles fabuleux. J'avais juste besoin de me sentir de nouveau inspirée, de poster avec passion et plaisir.

Je vous promets de ne plus vous laisser comme cela, et préparez vous pour quelques surprises sur Pardon My Obsession. En attendant, voici ce que j'ai porté il y a quelques semaines : un manteau ultra chic de chez Pearl and Rubies, des boots Valentino, et des accessoires Hermès. De retour à l'essentiel, dans mon style et sur mon blog :)

  13. Even though it's almost halfway through January, a Happy New Year! You look very beautiful in this stylish outfit.. exactly what I expect from Parisian fashionistas! :)

    I can understand how sometimes setbacks, time constraints and other issues can result in a decrease or lack of motivation to work on the blog. I think it's very important that you yourself have figured out that your passion for fashion is your main motivation! So I look forward to what you will post.. it will be good because of where it's coming from! :)

  28. Coucou Caroline !

    J'ai beaucoup aimé ton post. Tu as entièrement raison de profiter de ta family, de tes amis et de ton copain en priorité.

    J'adore tous tes looks ! Mais je voulais te demander (uniquement si tu arrives à te libérer pour te consacrer à ton blog) quels sont tes endroits favoris à Paris pour te balader, faire des emplettes ou si tu aimes les musées et si tu as des conseils incontournables en matière de séduction à donner, etc. N'hésite pas à me répondre même par mail si tu veux (d'ailleurs cela me ferait fortement plaisir de te rencontrer autour d'un verre ! :-))

    Bisous !!


    PS : Je suis étudiante en master 1 de sociologie et économie à Paris 1 mais j'aimerais me réorienter en art (restauratrice de tableaux, comédienne, etc). Et tout comme toi, je suis assez timide ! :-)

  29. The pop of color is soo cool ..

  30. Nice photos!!! :)

  31. I'm so glad you're back! This is definitely one of my favourite blogs and I would be so sad if you gave it up!
