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 !
A few weeks ago, Choies offered me to send me a few pieces so I could show them to you guys around here. I really like the brand for its small prices and the large choice of stylish pieces, so I jumped on that occasion and decided to adopt this lovely sweater that kind of looks like the Isabel Marant jumper I’ve been craving for a while.
But, stupid as I am, I placed my order without looking at all the technical details of the thing, and that’s only when I received it that I discovered that it was a crop top. And not just a little cropped. It’s like, really really cropped. It’s still looks really good though, but honestly, I’m not fond of crop tops, it’s just not my style.
Especially when it’s like 3 degrees outside and it’s not gonna get better anytime soon.
So, as I still really liked that top, I decided to use one of my usual gangster technique, which basically consists in doing something in a very unconventionnal way but also completely innocent way in order to achieve what I visually had in mind, to show you this top : Is it too cropped ?! No problem, I’ll just wear it with a half attached dungaree so you’ll still see the details without showing skin ! Is it too cold outside ?! No problem, let’s shoot in the staircase to make it look a bit grunge and it will do the trick !
Eh, in the end, you can’t see all this, you just see the final result, and it’s perfectly innocent 😉
Greyish and tired look, tiny eyes, fading tan and temperatures cooling down at a fast pace, yes, we definetely are getting to the heart of the matter : the end of the year.
Seriously, going from the cool tempo of the holidays directly to the stress of work, it’s kinda cruel. One day you wake up a noon and just do nothing all day, the day after you wake up at dawn and stay up til dusk. And all of this is topped with the fear of days getting shorter and growing colder… Winter is around the corner, no doubt !
This year, I can particularly feel it, it’s like I have absolutely no strength to wake up in the morning, and a 10pm I’m so tired I could fall asleep standing up. I feel like a grandma. This is so stupid because I’m like 22 ! Stop it you fool, don’t become a grandma too soon !
But in the same time, I can’t wait to see all the pretty leaves turning brown, and I have so many upcoming projects, it’s almost only happiness ! I’m saying almost because as you can imagine, the unexpected is a big part of the thing. Add stress and you’ll get the reason why I’m so tired and why my face looks like this on pictures !
But anyway, as long as I can still shoot and update my blog, this means my world keeps rolling pretty right !
