Roxy surf legging

Roxy surf leggings

Have  you seen all these gorgeous surf legging from the Billabong and Roxy collections!? When Mila goes surfing, she can easily spends between 4 to 6 hours in the water swapping between her surf board and a bodyboard. The only issue is that she always gets cold after an hour or so. This means that regardless of the season, she always wears a full wetsuit. When we were in Hossegor a few weeks ago (see on Instagram), I bought her these gorgeous surf leggings from Roxy. Not only the print is beautiful but she says that they are extremely comfy and warm. I would add that they are also practical and versatile. They are much easier and lighter to carry around than her wetsuit and she has been wearing them ever since… Each time she goes in the water, being a pool, the ocean or the Lake in Cazaux, they’re on …I essentially shoot 99% of my photos with a 50mm lens so I can’t catch her when she rides a wave but since we went on the …

#weekly fashion edit

I love fashion… I enjoy shopping once in a while. I clear my wardrobe and cupboards regularly (you can read my 15 practical, helpful tips to declutter your home) but last year I had a real overdose of consumerism just before Xmas. I know it sounds like a complete cliché and the kind of words of wisdom we find on Pinterest but after the difficult year that 2016 was, I wanted to focus on collecting moments rather than things. The ongoing“buy, buy, buy” message coming from TV ads, e-news, magazines and blogs made me angry, frustrated and unhappy. I was a real Grinch :-) I could not rejoice into the pre-Xmas frenzy and the underlying message that happiness was to be found in the latest iPhone or a new it-bag. Have you ever felt like this?? As such my weekly fashion feature “5 Things I Want Right Now!” that many of you loved, started rubbing me the wrong way so I just stopped doing it. It took me 10 months, a blog revamp and some of you telling me you used …

10 pretty summer white dresses in the sale

My top 10 fav’ summer white dresses

In summertime, while I tend to live in denim shorts & white tee during the day…at night, I love nothing more than wearing a maxi or midi white cotton dress with a pair of flat sandals and I tend to stock up on them to be honest. It’s an easy, effortless, stylish look and white is great to show off your tan no matter your skin tone. Mango is usually a good place to find a Summer white dress with a  bohemian feel. Street markets are also a great place to source some unique designs. I’ve found some real gems in the market near my holidays home and if you come to the Bay of Arcachon, let me know and I will give you some details. So far, my favourite this year is this Magnolia dress from Hush which happens to be in the sale! I love the fabric which feels a bit like linen and it has a beautiful, flattering cut. If you have  a small upper body like mine but curves around the hips, it’s perfect. I’m …

denim shorts & white tee: #outfitperfection

Denim shorts & white t-shirt

#denim shorts love I photographed several girls in denim shorts and swimwear for the People from the Sea series while I was in Bali included Katia below and I had such a good feeling with her that we ended up shooting twice together. Below are a few images of our second photoshoot in Canggu. One look that I absolutely love on holidays, if not, the only one is the combo of denim shorts & white t-shirt. Simple, basic, effortless…ga ood old pair of denim shorts is debasically all you need on holidays…ok that and maybe a nice boho dress like this one from Rachel Zoe currently 70 % OFF and this dreamy Stella McCartney maxi dress. Granted it really depends on where you’re are off to for your holidays but for a laid-back place like Bali, frankly you really don’t need to pack much. It’s hot there. Even when it rains, it’s hot and I lived in my two pairs of denim shorts during our whole vacations updating my outfits with light cotton tops like this one from Numero …

My top 5 Message t-shirts of this season

My top 5 Message t-shirts of this season

Alice, who I photographed last week, wears the “Females of the future” t-shirt from Topshop I got for Mila last time I was in London. Mila is getting at the age where she is borrowing more and more from my wardrobe and personally, I don’t feel ready to hang out my Converse, Stan Smith or cool sweatshirts anytime soon so size (and stains!) permitting, we are starting to get a bit of crossover in the fashion department. Since I did a round-up of my favourite message sweatshirts last week, I thought I would treat you with my current favourite message t-shirts ;-)

Message sweatshirt

Think less…

I’ve always loved message t-shirts or sweatshirts and so does Mila now. We found this one at Pimkie a couple of days ago and I may go back to the shop tomorrow to see if I can get one for myself. Psssst….if you don’t yet, you can follow my new Instagram dedicated to my portrait photography here or drop me an email if you want to work with me. SHOP THE STORY:

5 things I want right now for a black on black look

5 things I want right now!

It has been a pretty gloomy week on various levels so let’s lighten up things with a bit of fashion and it’s fridYEAH after all… I really love this all black look I posted on Instagram, and it’s pretty much my go-to outfit at the moment. It’s fashionable, comfy, easy to pull together with a hint of fashion. I usually pair it with an oversized coat and if the weather gets warmer, swap my black jumper for a white tee-shirt. Voilà, job done!
