רלה א שאטו

Perhaps a bit too elegant to visit a french village, this outfit is otherwise perfect to go to the restaurant of L'Espérance, a Relais & Châteaux. Hotels and restaurants that are part of the Relais & Châteaux fellowship are all very elegant, hence why I went for a chic look.

Rouge vin

Today's look is perfect for mild winter or, in the case of Canada, autumn. Wouldn't I just love a winter where you can get temperatures such as 12°C (around 53-54°F). Oh well, at least I'll have a white Christmas.

Now back to the outfit. As you might have notice, the central color of this look is red. There are red details in the pattern of the dress, the tights are red and the handbag is also red. I think this look is perfect to visit little villages in Burgundy. I just realized now that burgundy is also a shade of red, which gives some sense to the colour theme of today's outfit, but I swear it wasn't consciously planned.

Gigantesque et délicate

For today's location, I decided to go for a holiday look. I know we are not the 25th yet, but chances are that I'll be to busy with Christmas stuff to write a blog post on that day. Since today's location is a cathedral, I thought it was the perfect occasion to create a holiday outfit. The dress might be a little short for church, but I added black tights to make it a little more decent. Anyway, I have seen worse. I know the outfit is quite black except for the bright red coat, but that's because the dress is so sparkly that I felt the accessories needed to be a bit more neutral, but the gold of the clutch adds a nice metallic touch to the outfit. 

Oh, and for the one who go to church in the morning on the 25th and find it weird that I mention church for such an evening look, well, in Quebec, we go to church in the evening of the 24th. It is what we called the "Réveillon". So after the church ceremony, we go back to the house of a family member and we get our gifts and eat plenty of food. I'm not sure though if this tradition is only done by Quebec catholics or by all catholics, so if you know something about it, feel free to leave a comment. As for the 25th, well, we get some more gifts in the morning and we celebrate again in the evening. Well, that's how it is in my family, as I know some take the 25th to relax after the party of the 24th.

Wein und Museum

It's winter time in many places in the world, including today's location. That's why there is a winter coat. The dress is clearly the center of this outfit as it is a bright color compared to the rest of the outfit. The earrings add a bit of bling.

Today's location is a charming french village near Bordeaux. You might wonder why there's a rain coat and an umbrella in the set. It's because I decided to use the weather forecast of the location to create my blog post as I want to create outfit for different weather types. If you look at my previous sets, you might notice I have a tendency to create outfits for sunny weathers and never colder than chilly. So since the weather forecast for Saint-Emilion today was rainy, I decided to add a rain coat and an umbrella to the outfit and go for rain boots instead of regular shoes. And aren't those boots the cutest? I totally love the bows!
