Some times ago I started realizing something strange was happening to me : I started developping a passion for all things pink. Although, I have always been telling to whoever might want to listen to me that pink and me were just NOT friends. No, me, I like blue, I like grey, I like yellow… I have always been kind of a tomboy and pretty much anti-everything-girly so, no, I definetely could not be linking pink. And yet, after the pink wall and the pink sweater, here is the pink coat. And not just a little pink !!!
But when I saw it on the Mango webshop, my heart actually melted right there. It had been a while since I had such a huge crush on anything. Especially on something pink. But now I can say my crush has become an actual love story as I won’t stop wearing it. It even brought me a new nickname : Barbapapa (a french cartoon character, it means “cotton candy” in French !) And I must say I actually like it !
Guess I must be wise, because you know what they say about fools never changing their minds !
Finally the weather here in Paris is nice enough for me to finally wear my perfect Sézane overalls and show it off around here ! Isn’t it just perfect for spring ?!
I don’t know if you’re familiar with the brand but here in France, it’s becoming hard to find a girl who is not completely obsessed with it. And each time they get a collection out, we are just sitting there drooling over everything, crying over the fact that our bank accounts are not extendable and that we can’t decently buy everything. But we still check it out because it is way too pretty to pass up, even though we are risking the fact that our heart will go boom for one piece and that we’ll just HAVE TO buy it (cuz it’s a matter of survival). And that’s what I did in February where they got their monthly collection out and I saw that overalls. I HAD TO buy it. So I did. It was on pre-sale but regarding the weather we had here at this time I knew I would not be wearing it for now so it was okay for me to wait. As long as it was mine.
Yet I guess my subconscious was in a real hurry to get my hands on that overalls because BOY did the time seem long between my order and the day I received it… So long I even started to doubt my instant crush. Before I even received it, I was already thinking about sending it back.
I finally received it, but couldn’t resist and had to try it on, just once. And that’s how Sezane works its magic. This overalls is just SO comfy, SO well cut, SO well finished, SO perfect… I just couldn’t send it back !
So here it is in action, and it’s guaranteed you’ll be seeing it some more around here because it is just way too perfect !
I love this outfit, and yet I already know that it will probably be far from winning unanimous support here. I actually had it in mind for quite a while now and never tried shooting it before because I was pretty sure it was going to get criticized… Wearing socks in sandals isn’t always a big hit, but when it’s about wearing big wool socks inside Birkenstocks… I must admit I pretty much knew from the start that people tend to associate this style with German tourists rather than a parisian fashion blogger…
You should have seen my boyfriend’s face when he layed eyes on my feet that day… I thought he will never accept to walk next to me in the streets…
Despite all of that, I absolutely adore this outfit. I love it because of this little detail, but also because of its creamy colors and all those boyish pieces. So I decided to accept that it was just something I liked and went out with it. I hope you’ll share my thoughts though, and I certainly hope you won’t be taking this as a chance to give me the german tourist nickname 😉
