A few weeks ago I was invited to discover a brand I had never heard of before, Sisley.
I see you guys coming like “How can you not know Sisley, it’s a pretty famous brand, are you sure you’re a real blogger ?!”
Yeah, well no, I am not talking about the famous beauty brand that I obviously knew before, but I am talking indeed of an eponymous (& absolutely awesome) fashion brand, that I got the chance to discover during an evening at their Parisian store.
During that evening I fell utterly in love with that tencel jumpsuit, so soft and so cool. It’s absolutely perfect : comfy and well cut, I love the little details and military outlook. I hesitated on the color quite a bit because it was also available in khaki green, but that dark grey just did it for me. I hope you’ll like it as much as I do, along with that very black outfit !
We are having the worst freaking weather EVER here in France… I actually have never seen such a horrible month of May, it’s been so cold and raining almost everyday and it is just NOT POSSIBLE ANYMORE. If it doesn’t stop anytime soon, you are probably going to assist to the death of all French people due to massive depression and lack of sunshine… And I do not wish that to happen…
Besides, non stop rain is a real pain when it comes to life organization : I can’t get my dog out as much as I’d like, it ruins my hair as soon as I wash it, it deprives us all from entire days of Roland Garros matches, and mainly it prevents me to shoot what I need to shoot. Rain has always been my worst pet peeve as a photographer : besides keeping me from goint out as I’d like and dressing up as I’d want, the humidity and very weak light during the few minutes when it doesn’t rain are the worst conditions to take pictures. And don’t even get me started on my appartment, which is usually pretty bright but instantly transforms as a mortuary cave with this kind of weather… So we ended up taking these pictures during a 5 minutes rain break, I decided to go with a sailor outfit to stay in tune with this humid atmosphere…
First of all, I’m sorry for not keeping my promise and forgetting about you during my vacations. I was able to hold it for the first week but I must admit my post-Amsterdam week was a bit busy and I wasn’t able to keep up with my engagements here, I hope you’re not mad at me for this !
Let’s just say it was all for the purpose of a better come back here today, with a “seasonal” outfit, even though I must admit I actually hesitated posting it today because it’s raining so much right now in Paris you’d find it hard to believe we’re almost in June… Seasons are not what they used to be I guess…
But the thing is I have no other outfits to share with you, or at least none involving knits and mittens, so I guess we’ll just have to comfort ourselves thinking this one might actually inspire us for the upcoming September, if we’re lucky !
But c’mon, let’s stay optimistic and cross our fingers real tight for our toes which are starting to rot at the very bottom of our woolen socks, and hope for better weeks to come !
