Als de bloemen konden spreken zouden ze zwijgen

Hi! I'm so sorry that I haven't blogged in a while. I was studying like crazy for my finals. Anyway, this set returns to my traditional "english garden = pastels" combination. I really need to get rid of that... Next time I come across a location that is or has a garden, may it be british, french or italian, I'll try to use bold colors. I know the bag seems out of place for a garden, but the location is actually an hotel in the countryside (with a garden).

아는 길도 물어가라

Hi! So, we're back in the english country side. This time, the location is not a garden but an old roman wall. So, I went for a cute long-sleeved top and jeans, a crossbody handbag because it's way more practical in the countryside, cute flats (who would walk in heels in a field to see an old roman wall?!) with socks as it can be chilly, an owl necklace and a bow elastic to add some accessories. I have to say I love the color and the style of the top and also the deep brown of the handbag.

Hello! So today's outfit is a teatime outfit, but not any teatime, the Ritz teatime. I decided to match this lovely light-colored dress with darker accessories (except for the headband and the necklace) to create a contrast and because an pale outfit for teatime seems so cliché. I decided to add the pearl necklace because it is the Ritz after all and elegance is never overstated (especially not during teatime at the Ritz). Passed many times in front of the Ritz during my trips to London, but never took the tea there. Will probably do next time I go.

Have a nice day and yes, I do love the word "teatime".

So, for today's outfit I decided to mix chic and casual together, since the Connaught Hotel is a very chic London hotel in a nice neighborhood, but I think nobody arrives there for a room in a ball gown or a cocktail dress (unless there is an event of some sort of course). I don't think anyone arrives in jeans either (but I'm sure it happens), so that's why I picked this lovely dress and matched it with a McQueen clutch and Union Jack ankle boots, both accessories adding some elegance to the look and some britishness. The other accessories are there to complete the look.

Long time no see! Sorry about that, I was very busy (and still am) with schoolwork. Now, on to today's outfit. I decided to match the dress with black and golden things (shoes, handbags and other accessories) because the color of the dress is at the same time a bit dark and bright. I chose those hair pins because the location is a flower show, so flowers are an appropriate theme. Not super original, but appropriate.

Je vais à Londres, je vais faire du cinéma...

Hello! First, for the one who understand french and are wondering about the title, that's part of the lyrics of a song that used to be popular in Quebec. Now, the outfit. I have to admit that I mainly built it around the hat. I was looking for a city feeling, but most particularly, a London feeling (of course!) with that outfit. I liked the bohemian side of the bracelet, the cuteness and chicness of the dress, the color and coolness of the boots and the fierceness of the handbag.  As for the tights, it's because it's usually chilly in London (except in the Underground stations, where it can be very stuffy, even when it's chilly outside).

Hi! Since this location involves a lot of walking, I went for a look that would be stylish and practical at the same time, hence the flat boots, the comfy sweater and the jeans. The backpack adds a bit off color to the look. As for the hat, well, I just felt like adding a hat to the outfit. Same goes for the necklace.

Have a nice day!
