fashion inspiration : faux fur for winter

faux fur for winter simpleandchicblog

One of the reasons why I don’t like winter is because the styling options are not that many (especially if you are always cold like me). I have a nice black coat that I love but I really can’t stand wearing the same thing for 5 months in a row just not to get cold. This year, I have invested in a cool faux-fur coat from Spirit Hoods (this one to be precise) and I can’t wait for it to arrive! I think faux-fur gives you this instant cool and chic vibe but it’s important to keep the rest pretty low key (jeans + black boots + a neutral cashmere) to avoid the Kim Kardashian look… Here are some of my favorites:

packing for a summer trip

ESPRIT SUMMER TRIP

As most women, I always tend to pack way too many items when I travel. This summer, I decided to only bring a carry-on suitcase for a long weekend with friends on the Liguria coast in Italy, here are my travel essentials:

A black swimsuit (that can be used as a top with a pareo for a quick lunch or happy hour), a nice chic blouse combined with denim jeans and a shopper that I’ll use to carry all my belongings and my books, at the beach.

I love the tassel detail on this bikini bottom perfect to look good on the beach, these fringed mules can also be worn at night for a more casual look and this red dress is just amazing !

For the evening, a small black purse (this one has sequins on which makes it perfect to go out dancing as well !), high heel sandals, a jumpsuit that can be worn with sandals for a more casual look during the day or heels for a more elegant look. I also love this white one shoulder summer dress that will look great for happy hour…

Culottes are super trendy right now (I just bought a pair at Zara, they have a great selection!) and since it’s a tricky piece to wear, I thought I’d share some ideas with you guys…
