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 ♡

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 ♡

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!
- 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
- 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!

So; Yeah or Neah to the one piece swimsuit? Bisous, Melissa ♡
The parka is a basic must-have so comfy and it brings a bit of color to winter time. If you are tired to wear a black coat, it is a good alternative to style your outfit effortless. It is also a good windproof and a good coat to be protected from the cold. How to choose it ? Personally I prefer the ageless version in kaki because it goes with everything, and I like when it has a good length, a cute faux-fur hood and a lot of pockets everywhere! Having many pockets is cool because you can forget stuffs there and find them some weeks later and it is like a christmas feeling haha:) On these very grey pictures taken in Paris, I am wearing a kaki parka from Asos and I love it! It can be worn in a feminine way thanks to a thin string that tighten the waist. But the very cool thing is its detachable part that you can unbutton to transform it into an army jacket, ideal for a mid-season wear. As it was a F*** freezing day, I wore it on a black slim with some faux-fur boots and a chunky headband. What do you the think about this winter outfit? Bisous, Melissa ♡
