__at the getty__

this is out of control, every single time i enter topshop, i buy something
i am already very sensible to matching top and bottoms, i just can't ignore it
but there, in a perfect reddish plaid, 4 days before christmas! that was too much to resist
and since we are still in southern california, i can wear it with my favorite sunglasses and sandals
life is well done sometimes

i never get tired of the desert. the colors and the landscapes move and change all the time, it's never the same. 
i forget everything when i am there. if you want to see more pictures, click here.

__it's cold__

i love how adding white makes any outfit looking colder and cleaner
especially when those white elements have a more sporty look
i feel i am always torn between one thing and the other and finally i try to balance as much as i can
little note, this skirt is my tradition, i wear it every year when i start christmas shopping
i am pretty late this year

__ ha ha nike__

yes, i did it.
i finally got a pair of nike and wear it as regular shoes
i was tempted to do so for soooo long and here i am
i know what you are thinking, what's the big deal here?
well first of all it is my first pair of nike, ever
when it was question of "sport", i was more an adidas type of girl
and also, it is the first time that i buy sneakers by myself and for myself
i am walking around a lot for the moment and i must say these shoes are a blessing

__some pink and blue__

some days are made to be colorful. today was one of these days. 
i also got some inches with my new tennis shoe. 
what i love in staying simple, it's that we can go for it with the details.

__not that much__

i fell in love with this pink furry skirt at topshop
it is soft and pastel, all i want and need this winter
the cut of it is really sixties but i balance the effect with a saggy knit

i like to balance things around, i am always afraid
i wouldn't define myself as minimalist, but there is still an obsession in me for "less is more"

i love casual mondays
i tried to play with necklaces, i lost the taste for jewelry but this season i feel it's coming back

__thank you mr Nam__

i found those corduroy pleated pants in a thrift store in the valley, there were so oversized but the fabric was just a dream so i gave it a chance
god bless all the tailors of the world, they do magic
i know how to sew but mr Nam doesn't even need to take measurements, he just look at me
i admire people excelling in one field, mastering their art as it become as natural as breathing

__some details__

i feel like sharing today so here are a few details of mine

my favorite moment of the day is the sunrise, it gives me hope and energy, the colors are soft and cold
i love Acne shoes
i crafts when i have time and one of my latest project was an embellished sweater, thanks j.crew for the inspiration, and see here for more pictures
i have a fascination for volcanoes, so strong that i have it in the wall of my living room

__plaid + plaid__

i love plaid.
once mid-november is reached, i just can't stop myself, i need plaid
it is my way of celebrating the holidays, especially that we do not have a thanksgiving in europe
at this time of the year, i am already fully into the christmas season
red white and blue is not the most traditional version of it, but it is my favorite

__heavy on my shoulder__

i love my saggy knit cardigan 
it is so heavy on my shoulder that i feel tiny with it
one more wonderful vintage treasure to wear year after year
just like that knit skirt
i probably wear it twice a year and then wait for the next occasion the rest of the time
winter really took a new dimension for me here in la

one of my favorite social media is pinterest
one of my favorite board at the moment is titled "details"
i collect details of outfits i love, those little things that make the difference
somehow that's what i am obsessed with for a very long time
even with people, it's often some small details of their appearance or personality that make me fall


i love martini blue, ice cold like the weather i dream about
i love fluffy sweaters, and were the v-neck in my back
2 colors, because i need contrast
a multicolor velvet scrunchie for only accessory

__time off__

i finally found the time to wear my ankle boots that i was keeping for fall
well, work has been so busy, that we are almost in winter
i kept the game simple, leather and knit, navy and black
i love the fluffiness of this sweater, it makes me wish i was in europe, or another cold region
