A Bad Mood Outfit, the Simple White Sweater

Some days I just wake up in a really bad mood and if I think about working out it makes it worse—I am definitely not a morning person. On these bad mood days I don’t even want to get dressed. I just want to stay in pyjamas, but suddenly I realize that I have a life and I need to get ready.

On bad mood days I don’t feel like taking a long time to choose what to wear, so I often just choose to wear a mono-color top. You might think it’s the most boring top ever, one you don’t even notice, but this type of top is really really French. We wear mono color a lot and we love simplicity.

I figured out that I don’t like to wear all white on top. For me I like to add a touch of color. So I opted for these beautiful light pink (rose) earrings.

Because remember I was in a bad mood, I went directly for jeans. The pants that always make me happy!!!

Oh yes I was thinking of something else! I love love these boots. They are really comfy . And the color is just a perfect taupe, that matches so great with warm and cool colors.

And because it’s fall and starting to give get some really chilly mornings, I treated myself with this adorable light pink jacket. I found it at Tjmaxx last week. If you are local and you like it RUN over to Tjmaxx!

This Turtleneck is the Stylish Top this Fall and Winter. Yes

Whenever I think of the word turtleneck, I cringe. I remember those horrible sweaters from my childhood. You know the ones. They were wool and super itchy. I wanted to scratch my skin so hard I thought I might start bleeding.

But today I found the holy grail of all turtleneck tops. This one is so so soft, comfy, and not too warm. The length of the sleeves also makes it possible to wear with jackets or cardigans.

I am wearing this top with a straight mom’s jeans. Yep, they are very fashionable this year—especially in Europe.

STYLE ALERT!

This blazer is one piece you really need to wear this fall/winter. I love the color, the length is what is making it very popular right now. You can wear it with pants, jeans, or even a dress. This blazer is the centerpiece of this outfit because of the pattern. So as I’ve talked about before, since the blazer is a patter, French girls try to keep the other pieces simple. This black turtleneck is perfect compliment to the blazer.

If you don’t like that blazer, I have your back. I found this one in France but last week when I was hunting, I mean shopping, I found out that you can buy this almost exact beauty at Tjmaxx.

I love these loafers SO much. I want to wear them every single day. They add the perfect French touch that I like. And because I am a mom I need really comfy shoes to run everywhere.

This Black Button Shirt is a Win!

So you know already if you read any of my other blog posts, that French women are in love with button shirts. It’s one of our favorite pieces of clothing for semi-casual and more dressed up outfits. This little beauty in black is a shirt you really need to own.

This black shirt is neutral and goes really well with both warm and cool colors. Most people look better in either cool or warm colors. Not many of us can pull off looking great in both. I am more of a warm color person.

Black shirts and especially button shirts can give you a classy touch and they definitely five a little French Flair.

Since you can wear black with either warm colors or cool ones, you should have one in your wardrobe.

I am wearing this beautiful piece with a mom’s cropped jeans 🤦🏼‍♀️ (why did they give it this name?). This style of jeans is really the fall trend, especially in France.

I was not a fan of leopard print when I first moved to the USA, but I have learned to love it. But maybe because I am French, I will probably always have a hard time wearing it on pants or tops. I am not ready yet 😂😂.

I love these shoes, they are so comfy and you can find them in small sizes. Did I mention my feet are really small? This is always a huge problem and I have a hard time finding my size in cute women’s shoes. So I typically search high and low for adorable tiny shoes. These are an awesome find, plus they are super cheap. There is one drawback, they come from China and if you want a pair they take 3 weeks to get them.🤪🤪

If you don’t want to wait 3 weeks, I found a gorgeous version from Nordstrom.

Mustard yellow can be a hard color to wear. I went with this really comfy sweaters, but if you have a hard time wearing it as a major outfit piece, you can definitely add this color on accessories like scarves or earrings.

I love this outfit so much, I hope you enjoy it too 🙂

My Outfit All Around These Earrings!

I was shopping last week and I came across these earrings! They stopped me dead in my tracks and I just stood in front of them frozen. They I took a big breath and said to myself, “Those NEED to me mine!” I didn’t even stop to think if I had something to wear them with. Nope, it was just LOVE at first sight.

Only a crazy person could look at them and say that they are not gorgeous. Just look at that color, it’s a perfect fall color. That’s right, fall is NOT just about yellow and orange all the time!

So after buying them I had come up with something to wear them with and I realized I had made a very challenging outfit decision—I made the centerpiece of my outfit the earrings. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

So, I decided to keep the base items simple and paired them with these great skinny jeans and found the exact same color t-shirt as the earrings. For footwear, I chose some of my favorite light beige ankle booties.

But as you are aware, I am a French woman so that means I needed to add a little French Flair to this outfit!

So, I added a simple long cardigan that is the same color as the shoes. And just by chance I happened to have this wonderful scarf that was a perfect match.

The point of this story is sometimes you find a piece that you like so much you buy it even if you have nothing to wear it with. My advice, just listen your heart and everything will turn out perfect.

The only thing left for me to find for this outfit was the perfect Lipstick and I found it! This one if from Smith & Cult and the color is called, The Queen is Dead. It’s a great color and it’s only $13 from Saks Fifth Avenue. Finding the perfect lipstick always adds a perfect touch of class to your outfit.

Weekend Outfit

We are always very very busy on the weekend. So, I really need a practical comfy outfit for those days. It’s still warm here in south Utah, but the wind is giving us some cool air that I appreciate a lot.

We usually have football games every Saturday. So my outfit needs to be easy and not too warm.

For this outfit my centerpiece is the shirt. It’s a striped top. (If you read first blog post you know French girls don’t mix patterns often.) I found this one at H&M and I love it for just $5—yes $5.

Here is my thought about cheap t-shirts. Yes, I like to have basic some high quality classics that will stay in my wardrobe forever, but I also like to buy cheap t-shirts that I only wear 5 to 10 times and that stays in my wardrobe for just for one season. Every season you will discover a new style that you really like, so it’s a waste to spend a ton of money on shirts you will only wear a few times.

So the opposite of my cheap t-shirts are these pants. They will stay in my wardrobe forever. Here is why: they are pants that can be worn during spring, summer, and fall. The color is just perfect. The fabric is so soft. I love the fact it can be very classy or casual. They can even be very dressy, later this year I will create a very “dressed up” outfit and post about it.

Go one size down!

Because some evenings this time of year it can be chilly, I needed a jacket. For this outfit I chose a jean jacket. It’s one of those basic pieces that every wardrobe needs, so if you don’t own one, run out and get this one. 🙂 You will be able to match it with a lot of outfits all years around. It’s a little bit fitted and will give you a way more feminine look. This is one piece you should own no matter how old you are—young or old this jacket is fantastic!

Oh my Converse tennis shoes I love you. Yes, these shoes need to be in your closet I promise you. Your closet will be so much happier with a pair and they are so classic, they will never go out of style.

This is my French touch to this ensemble. French women love pearls, like Romeo loved Juliet—it’s a true love story. I would wear pearls everyday if I could. These pearls are special, they come from French Polynesia. I love the fact they are absolutely not perfect. They add pure classiness in your outfit.

My husband bought these for me from my dear friend Ravah. She lives here in Southern Utah, but she is from French Polynesia. She grew up in Tahiti and yes she speaks French to me all the time! Her and her family sell the most amazing authentic Tahitian Pearls. They come in many different shades and shapes and sizes. They aren’t cheap, they are the real deal, super high quality that last forever. It’s something you should put on your Christmas wish list!

For more information on her Tahitian Pearls email my friend Ravah for more details: Ravahereamo@hotmail.com.

Get Out Your Cardigan

Yes yes yes , it’s starting to get cold outside. I can’t wait for the snow. I know I’m crazy, but I am pretty much done with summer. This fall you need a long cardigan. They are very flattering and they add a little classiness to your outfit. I bought this one at Tjmaxx just 2 days ago.

This outfit is so classy but at the same time comfy. If you read my recent blog on how I put my outfits together you know that I always choose centerpiece first.

My centerpiece for this outfit is my scarf, again 😬. But it’s fall so scarves are my way to go. I love scarves.

Next, I think of the color palette. I purposefully select 3 or less base colors that look good together to make my outfit look great. My scarf in this outfit has different fall colors, I love it. Above is the basic color pallette for this outfit.

I wanted to be a little dress up, but not too much so I paired this ensemble with jeans. I love jeans, so you will see me a lot in them 😂.

The baseline was this top which is a pure marvel and the French touch in this outfit. Oh wait a minute, the scarf too and probably the shoes. (Come to think of it, this outfit is all pretty Frenchy.) This blouse is a really classic one. I feeling so french in it. We call it a Claudine Collar (Peter Pan here). I think this style is so classy, it’s never out of fashion.

My jeans are a simple high waist skinny jean. High waist jeans can give you a more thin silhouette. I am just 5′ 2″ so I need some help to look taller🤷‍♀️.

These flat, pointed toe shoes are really a hot style to have this fall.  You can find them almost everywhere. I love this taupe/pink color.

Oh and don’t forget, in my opinion, a really great lipstick color can make you feel more confident. This one’s a really great color!

Classy casual outfito

I love, love casual outfits! You might think that picking out an adorable outfit takes a lot of time. I have a simple process, if you follow it, I promise that is not too hard.

Here’s my process:

1) First, I always choose the centerpiece of my outfit, then I arrange the other pieces around it. The centerpiece might be a shirt, pants, or some accessory, but it’s usually something with a little FLAIR. I only wear one patterned piece.

French women love accessories, so yep I chose my scarf as the centrepiece for this outfit.

2) Next, I think of the color palette. I purposefully select 3 or less base colors that look good together to make my outfit look great. My scarf in this outfit has a lot of great fall colors, I love it. Below is the basic color pallette for this outfit.

3) I choose other elements that compliment my centerpiece. They are usually simple yet classy so they don’t complete with my centerpiece. I always let my mood be the boss. For this outfit I was totally not ready to dress up. So, for a casual, yet classy look I decide to go with comfy clothes.

For this look, here is the baseline—this simple T-shirt from topshop. It’s the top to have. I will make a blog post soon on the base wardrobe you need to own.

So this white simple top is a boyfriend style and I love it. It gives the feeling to be more cool just because of his sleeves 😂😂.

4) I choose the other base piece for the outfit. For this one, it’s the jeans. This pair is SO COMFY. You know why? It’s the awesome, stretchy fabric. I also love the dark color, but the thing I love most is that they hug you and give a little extra curvy for your hip. I often feel so uncomfortable in most jeans, but these are a dream. They are like wearing pyjamas!

5) I finish off the outfit with the other accessories. For this outfit, next are the shoes. OH MY GOSH, Heaven Alert! These shoes are so so so comfortable! They are wedges, but they are really discreet. Your silhouette will look way more fine with these—like wearing mini heals. They are so feminine and I think just perfect. They really are “mom” shoes but you can wear them 24h/7 without problem.

The next piece to this outfit is the jacket and I LOVE this one. I need to explain why. Adding a jacket to a casual outfit is so FRENCH and gives you an awesome french style. Adding it to this outfit will make you look super classy. And if you add a scarf, well you are a French girl. I found this one at Tjmaxxxxxxxxxx. For my local friend, there are still a lot, so run run run if you love it.

Oh accessories I love you. I found these earrings on eBay. I love their color and the fabric.
