Tropical

septembre 24, 2017

Last weekend we spent the day in Elche, a little city close to Alicante that is famous for its palm tree forest. This special place is ideal to wander, you have the feeling of being in a tropical oasis in the middle of a dry region. In fact the Palm Grove of Elche created by the Moors is one of the largest in the world and was designated by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. We really enjoy hanging out there and taking pictures of this beautiful garden. That place inspired me to add a little tropical touch to my outfit with this colorful headband. Actually, the headband is one of my favorite accessory to stylish my hair effortless when I am in a hurry or to hide my dirty hair. The headband is also a cool accessory to add a boho vibe to your outfit. You can find plenty of them very cheap in Zara in different colors and fabrics like velvet for this autumn. There are different ways to wear them, above or below your hair. As this headband has elastic I rather wear it below the hair because it gets always uncontrollable! It slides on my hair just like when you walk on a banana laying on the floor and can’t remain at its place! Are you experimenting the same existential situation with your headband? How do you keep it under your control? Any tips are always welcome ;)Bisous, Melissa ♡

Bohemian dress

septembre 3, 2017

The advantage to live close to the sea in a sunny area is that you can enjoy the beach life during the week-end without buying a plane ticket and go far away. I feel so grateful to have that chance because I can’t get enough to watch beautiful sunsets on the beach while drinking a cocktail and explore the life under the sea. My favorite summer outfit to go to the beach is the jumpsuit and the boho dress because they are so comfy and fast to put-on… and takeoff! I really love the blue color of this bohemian dress that matches so well this the sea at the background. Sometimes my friends ask, will you come back to Paris? Nope don’t worry for me, just want to jump again into the big blue and feel like a mermaid! Wild bisous, Melissa ♡

Slip dress

décembre 15, 2016

It is not a secret anymore that I am still dreaming to discover one day my magic powers. I remember when we where teenagers with my best friend we made a witch book and wrote some magic formulas that we found on Internet (it was the beginning of internet and the connection was so bad and slow that you had to choose between using the telephone or internet!). Anyway I am convinced that we all have energy that we transmit to others and can realize miracles like « magic powers ». Isn’t amazing that just a smile can bring light to someone’s life within a second? Today I am having on another “witch” outfit that I especially love because it is highlighting an emblematic piece from the 90’s that I wore as a teen: the slip dress. This dress that looks like a nightdress is quite easy to wear and style for different occasions: alone as a sexy dress for a party, with a tee shirt or transparent top for a more daily outfit. I am wearing for this shooting a beautiful maxi slip dress with a transparent top that both come from Stradivarius. As this look is very feminine, I prefer to wear some back boots and my usual black hat to add a little rock touch. Do you also approve the come back of the slip dress? Bisous, Melissa ♡

Canadian vibes

plaid shirt

Today I am taking you to a hill around my home where we love to have a walk and it has a wonderful panoramic view overlooking at the city where we love to drink a cup of wine. It is a relaxing place that reminds me the woods in the South of France where I grew up. Ok don’t think I was raised by wolves like Moogly although I love this cartoon! This autumn outfit has a little Canadian touch with a plaid flannel shirt (I am fascinated by the Canadian woodcutters with their plaid shirt although I feel concerned about the protection of the forest!), a denim button skirt and some black over-the-knee boots. If you love too the Canadian lumberjacks and want to get another outfit idea on how to wear the plaid shirt, check out the article lumberjack shirt. Bisous, Melissa ♡

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 ♡

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 ♡

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. If you are looking for another wedding outfit idea check out this article. Bisous, Melissa ♡

All white

juillet 2, 2016
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 ♡
