Ankles out, light jacket on my shoulders and sunnies on my nose : I guess we can definetely say that summer is coming ! And it was high freaking time ! I was really starting to miss light and cool outfits… I’m the kind of gal that gets really bored of winter jumper really fast… But let’s not jinx it though… That’s probably why I decided to start easy with an almost all black outfit, even though I really love clear or white outfits in the summer ! My Voyou (means “bandit” in French) t-shirt, always very successful and my new favorite pants with its perfect cut, my favorite Zara jacket and its gorgeous color and last but no least, my new perfect derbies from… Balsamik ! Yet again ! But if you’re looking for pretty little shoes in that style, I would defintely recommand them : they’re extra light, super comfy (even for a girl who always heart when not wearing sneakers…), and their classic style is perfectly twisted by their white sole !
Since I’ve discovered the brand of french designers Leon & Harper like 3 or 4 years ago, they’ve become one of my all time favorite brands. So when I learned that they were going to collaborate with Monoprix, I just went crazy for that news. On the very first day I rushed to my local store to get what I had spotted on the lookbook and while almost everything was already sold out (I’m not the kind to wake up early) I still got to find my crush : this awesome breton stripe shirt with “Guilty” embroidered on it. I also bought that super cool cardigan that I never even saw on the lookbook but ended up being one of my favorite ones. Also, Leon & Harper usually make the very best of cardigans so I was so happy to get this one. Since then I keep wearing them all the time and couldn’t wait to show you guys, I hope you’ll like the outfit !
2016 will be a red-letter year as I FINALLY got myself my very first trench coat. And it was high time.
But it’s kind of like I waited for the perfect one my whole life and finally found it, because I have to say it was a total heart-stopper when I came upon it during Balsamik‘s latest press day. I just knew it was gonna be this one and no other. So perfect with its beautifully classical cut, its perfect color and especially its super comfy and flowing fabric… A total crush.
Actually I’ve had so many crushes during that press day, just like the pants I wore in my previous article, or this pretty little shirt I’m wearing here that also combine a cool cut, ideal colors and great fabric ! No doubts, Balsamik is definetely one of my biggest Spring Summer 2016 crush. Yet I would have never bet on it on paper, but it was such a nice surprise to discover this brand that associate beautiful and casual designs to nice materials with a really fair price. And most of the clothes are adjustable to your morphology (tall, petite, plus size…), which is a brilliant idea !
I ended up so in love with so many lovely pieces, you might be seeing a lot of them here during the next few months… Until then, I’ll let you discover this one here and get your own idea 🙂
