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 🙂
Amongst all the little things that make being a dog parent really awesome, I’d consider the (at least) weekly walk in the countryside, or in the woods, one of the top reasons ! So of course it’s always better when it’s sunny than when it’s pourring rain, but I always take great pleasure walking my dog in the woods. I’ve been a Parisian forever and I consider myself a real city gal but I absolutely need my dose of green spaces regularly. So since Joey has become a part of the family, I enjoy every occasion to leave the city and go trudging with my pup in the woods. And who says trudging also says wearing the appropriate gear, comfy and not too fragile. Thanks to Balsamik, I found my new perfect walkabout friend : these cargo pants so light and comfortable, camouflage-ish and oh so perfect for a casual outlook that doesn’t make you look like a sunday wreck. And what better way to show you these pants than in action in the woods ?! There it is !
