“I love simple and comfortable style with a quirky touch. These are my favorite jeans from Mango. I tried them on for an editorial and bought them the next day. I love them, super spring-y. On top I am wearing a CurveIRL striped shirt. I shot their new collection for them last autumn and this was my absolute fave piece! I wear it all the time and it costs less then $40! My jacket is from Reformation. I love their concept and was upset that I could never find anything in my size. So I got in touch with them and asked them for a selection of pieces I would be able to fit. They sent me a few and I fell in love with this oversized blazer. The scarf is such a French touch I love it, my mum use to wear lots of those when I was young. This scarf is from Mango. I bought it for a shoot I was styling and decided not to return it :) I got my shoes for $9 at Zara (on sale!) for my Tulum trip! Perfect, easy, chic piece.
Growing up, comfort in my outfits became my first priority! If I am not comfy in it, I won’t wear it! No more hurting my feet or sucking my belly in for fashion! I found that being confident isn’t about how hot you look or the tags on your clothes but mostly about how well you’re feeling in your own skin and your own clothes. Style is second. Not fashion, style. Which is very different and every French woman I know will get what I mean. Style is a vibe, an overall message you’re giving through what you’re wearing, something that doesn’t need to be shown or explained by tags or words, it just is (in this case, Cool Casual French girl passing by). You can’t buy style.”
