Spain is one of the most popular place for the summer holidays so it is not a piece of cake to find a peaceful beach. These kind of places are kept secret by those that love to feel alone on the beach. The place of this shooting is one of these, where you feel that you have arrived to the end of the world and can do all that you want. Unfortunately I cannot tell  you the name of this beach otherwise I will have to kill you afterward ! (ok I am watching too much « Narcos » I think 😉 ). Regarding my beach outfit,  I am a big lover of the maxi boho dresses because they are really comfy and romantic. I really had a crush on that floral maxi dress for its amazing purple color that reminds me the sunset colors of this beach somedays. What is your favorite outfit to go to the beach? Bisous, Melissa ♡

Have you ever tried to wear culottes? You know these cropped pants that hang like a skirt, but are actually pants! I thought they were totally has-been and until the day I decided to try them on just for curiosity´s sake and….shame on me I got trapped, I love them! Yes culottes are back this year and you might soon steal them from your grand-ma´s wardrobe! Still have doubts? Here are some pros and cons about culottes:

Pros:

  • These loose and flowy pants are so comfy, it´s like wearing a skirt without the risk to show your underwear when there is too much wind
  • They work with nearly everything as long as you wear heels: crop top, shirt, jacket etc.
  • You can wear them anywhere to any occasion from the workplace or parties!

Cons:

  • You were forced to wear them as a child, never liked it and you are not a fashion victim.
  • That might be a reason for your boyfriend to break up with you because usually men don´t want to date with their grand-ma.
  • They are not flattering the silhouette so they can be risky if you are not tall and slim like Gisele Bunchen.

If you want to avoid the risk to look like a potato bag, the basic rule is to wear culottes with heels. On these pictures taken in an abandoned factory, I am wearing culottes within a khaki co-ord set and a body jewelry to style the outfit. So what do you think about culottes? Bisous, Melissa ♡

Denim dress

août 26, 2016

I have finally found the coolest casual item for the summer that can be worn anytime and anywhere (except to climb the Everest or to go to bed maybe)! I am speaking about the denim dress that is a good classic to have when you don’t know what to wear. That day I am having on a denim dress with some silver shoes and the dream mermaid purse to have a walk in Cabo de Palos. It is a little fisherman’s village, which has lovely little creeks with crystal water, and it also has an amazing marine reserve where I love to dive (don’t wear it to dive neither, not practical). By the way, if you don’t want to get the total denim look of Katy Perry or Britney Spears at the MTV VMA, avoid absolutely denim accessories when you wear a denim dress! Anyway denim matches with everything so just have fun! Bisous, Melissa ♡

Kimono

août 17, 2016

Summer is getting so hot here (around 37°) that I cannot walk outside before 8pm except if it’s to go to the beach ! Sometimes I really feel I’m like a vampire, waiting for the sunset to leave home and take a walk in the city to drink some fresh blood cups of gin tonic or enjoy the last rays of light into the wild around the town. The landscapes nearby are really amazing, at just 10min by car you can find some hills that smell good the pine trees and rosemary while the valley looks like an oasis with little rivers, palm trees, lemon and olive trees. Walking there is so relaxing and changes a bit from the beach! That day I’m wearing a kimono jacket with a crochet top and denim short which is perfect for summer when you just want something on your shoulders. What is your favorite place to chill out in kimono jacket? Bisous, Melissa ♡

Stripes

striped outfit

As I use to spend the week-end at the beach during half of the year, I am always looking for new cool items for summer and a striped outfit is perfect to chill out on the seaside. Ok so the classic striped shirt: Check I already have (see my outfit here). What else? Striped pant? No thanks I don’t want to look like Beetlejuice twerking on the dance floor, this is for Miley Cirus 😉 So today I have on a striped maxi-skirt with a white off-shoulder top, crazy orange heel shoes …and last but not least a striped purse that totally matches with the skirt (so perfect, it is creating an optic effect hidding my purse to the stealers ahah)! Finally stripes really rock with everything effortless and are never out of style. So I leave you with these wonderful pastel colors that occur for a very short moment at the end of the day. I feel so lucky to enjoy such a beautiful landscape every week. Bisous, Melissa ♡

boho wedding outfit

Holidays are always too short! Have you ever felt you needed some extra holidays to rest from your holidays that just ended (life is hard)? Well this is exactly what I felt after my crazy holidays in France where I attended to 2 birthdays and 2 weddings in just 10 days. I don’t know what is the wedding culture in your country but in France weddings can last 3 days! You can have a kind of warm-up party the day before with all the friends, then the wedding party accompanied with a river of champagne can start from 3 pm until the sunrise and because we just can’t get enough, the next day we often meet again for an alcoholic brunch! Ok don’t think I am complaining, I really think weddings are the coolest parties ever invented! I wore this boho wedding outfit for a beautiful ceremony that took place in the French Southern countryside that really reminded me some paintings of van Gogh. In many weddings it is usual that people wear all kind of crazy hats because it is an awesome opportunity to have fun wearing some accessories that you would never dare to wear in your day-to-day life. Personally I love wearing flower crowns to spice up a style when I feel lazy to put make-up, clean and style my hair or go to the hairdresser. The flower crown and lipstick are just enough! By the way all my apologies for the bad quality of these pictures, I forgot to charge my camera (shit happens) so we just took them with an iPhone 6.

All white

all white outfit

All white styles are not only for weddings! I’m really a fan of colored looks for the summer but I love this all white outfit to spend the day at the beach. It is a perfect and strategic style to highlight a tanned skin and even an aspirin skin color like mine 🙂 The only problem about wearing an all white outfit is that it’s getting dirty really fast when you don’t know how to eat or drink properly. If you are a Bridget Jones like me and want to avoid a massacre with this summer outfit, I’ve got an advice for you: you should definitely avoid eating a plate of spaghetti bolognese that day ! (I already made that mistake ahah). But the great news is that you can totally go for a cup of champagne or white wine!  Cheers! Bisous, Melissa ♡

Off the shoulder

juin 17, 2016

Thanks to the off the shoulder top, we have a good reason to leave our bra in the closet and free our shoulders for this summer! More seriously, this trend doesn’t date from yesterday and is definitely back this year! Also called bardot top, it became an iconic piece in the 60s because it was one of the emblematic piece wore by the actress Brigitte Bardot who was a real icon and sex-symbol. So the off the shoulder top is sexy, boho, comfy and light to wear when the heat rises. Definitely a cool and irresistible tendency. However be very careful, this piece can become totally dangerous if it is a crop top especially on windy days and when you have no bra! On these pictures taken during one of the rare windy and cloudy days we have on the Spanish riviera, I was really happy that this off the shoulder top had a second layer that was elastic to avoid a huge shameful moment! This is the only risky experience I had with my off the shoulder top, otherwise it’s pretty cool and easy to wear with everything such as a denim pant or maxi skirt. So do you want to let your shoulders breath the fresh air? Bisous, Melissa ♡

One-piece swimsuit

mai 31, 2016

The one-piece swimsuit is back this summer! Personally the time I used to wear a monokini dates from my childhood and until recently; I used to think that this kind of swimming-suit was for children, to practice sport or for grandmas! But actually you can find so many one-piece swimsuits that have a very cool and sexy design that it has become an irresistible item to go to the beach. So I felt like to change from the usual mini bikini and embrace a new model that can also be sensual and totally crushed on this swimsuit from Oysho! I have to confess that one of the reason why I like it is that it is slightly padded so there is no way all the beach can see my tits after a bath! After re-experimenting the strange feeling to put on my childhood swimming-suit, I think it is stylish but not always practical to wear it! In fact, it can be worn by everybody but should be not being worn in all circumstances. To have style and avoid uncomfortable situations, here are the best and the worst about the one-piece swimsuit!

The Best:

  • Perfect to hide a scar or love handle so we can go for an additional mojito on the beach
  • To swim like a real mermaid through the waves without loosing your swimming suit and shocking the children
  • You are saving money since you need to put less solar cream

The Worst:

  • When you wear it under your clothes and need to go to the toilet…
  • To suntan unless you wan to win the trophy for having the dumbest suntan in your camping!
  • If you do not want to look like Paris Hilton, avoid the trikini or bring your chihuahua to the beach with you!
