As I promised you yesterday, here is the outfit I wore to dinner last wednesday night in London.
Like I told you yesterday, it’s quite unexpected from me but I still like the look. It definitly looks (and felt) like I was wearing my silky pijamas, but I like that style.
I didn’t go crazy with my jewelries or make up, I wanted to stay minimal (for once).
Wearing: ZARA shirt - BROOKLYN&BROOME silk pants – ZARA leather perfecto – VINTAGE fur – FOREVER21 shoes - LOBO GATO necklace – ZORA BY L bracelet – ZARA bag
What do you think of the outfit?
How freaking obvious is that title!?
What’s up? Did you have a good weekend?
As you probably know, I went to London last wednesday, until thursday, for 24hours of fun. And for Primark. But it was SO MUCH FUN.
First of all, we were a great bunch of people, some that I knew, some that I didn’t, but somehow the magic happened between all of us.
Second of all: the organisation was super great (big big thanks to Bérénice and Primark)
Third of all: what could go wrong when you’re in AWESOME LONDON?
And last but not least: It’s Primark we’re talking about, of course the trip is so DAMN COOL
On the night we arrived, after dropping our bags in the more than awesome Great Nothern Hotel (just accross the streat from St Pancras – smart move Primark, SMART MOVE) we went for dinner at Oscar.
Just by putting Malin+Goetz products, you can tell the GNH has great taste
Oscar is a really nice and chic restaurant located in Charlotte street. What I will definitly remember of it is how nice the staff was, how freaking good the food was… and yes, how amazing their cocktail menu – and their cocktails – were.
Potato pancakes, wild mushrooms, gorgonzola and rucola
Red snaper, king prowns, bok shoy and asian broth
And more cocktails
It was a really fun night getting to know everyone. What did I wear you’re wondering? Well, I had a really hard time packing for London. I hate dressing up for winter. And I didn’t have much inspiration. Then an idea popped into my head. It felt right, even though it’s not the kind of outfit I usually wear. It was all about black and white… but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to discover the complete outfit!
We headed back to the hotel for a great night of sleep, in one of the most exquisite bed I had the chance to sleep in, in my entire life. Thursday morning, late wake up thanks to smart organisation, I could take my time in the morning before heading for breakfast. Breakfast was served in a beautiful room, and was oh soo yummy.
Next step was going to the Primark Press Days, the actual purpose of this trip (nop, it wasn’t trying out most of the cocktails at Oscar’s). I was blown away by how cool was the collection, and how cheap (money wise) it is. I want to be next summer already! I’ll show you my favourite parts of the collection, later on this week.
Getting ready for summer 2014 thanks to Primark
After the excitement of seeing next summer’s collection, we
headed ran to the closest Primark store to do some mean shopping. The closest shop was actually the new one, located at Tottenham Court, and it’s HUGE. I ran up and down, in between the different floors and aisle. I narrowed it down to two HUGE bags of closing and accessories, for a few pennies (alright, a little more than that). If you want I could show you what I got? You wanna??
After that, and a quickly devoured burger + obligatory onions rings at Burger King (thank god they’re right next door to Primark), Dorothée and I walked to Oxford street to have a look at River Island and Topshop. River Island was better than expected, and I found an amazing dress, which I can’t wait to wear.
And then, it was time to go already. Quick pick up of our luggages at the hotel, then headed to St Pancras.
Thank you Primark for such an amazing time, thank you Bérénice for such an amazing organisation/smile/being the funny and kind person that you are, and last but not least, thank you London for still being yourself – that’s how I love you.
Let’s meet tomorrow right here to see what I was wearing to dinner my dears!
My second day in New York was all about walking around, again, the Empire State Building, and then moving into the second hotel in the Meatpacking District.
We first started with breakfast in some café close to 5th ave
Getting that last drop of maple syrup, yummyyy
Manhattan from the Empire State Building
Wearing: J. CREW shirt (from Buffalo Exchange) – FOREVER21 shorts – NEW LOOK sandals – JEROME DREYFUSS bag – FOREVER21 necklace
Sorry for not posting for like… FOREVER!
New York City was INSANE (as usual), and when I got back to DC, I just had so much to do and so little time left… So here I am, back and (finally) ready to post again.
Today I’ll share with you my first day in New York: we walked forever (kinda obvious for NYC, especially when you’re with a first timer). We went all the way up on Fifth Ave, then walked down through Central Park, then back on the street and took Madison.
I’m wearing: BSHIRT tee – ZARA shorts – COS neon bra – STRADIVARIUS necklace – NIKE sneakers – JEROME DREYFUSS bag
After some walking around, we headed to Times Square, which my sister was DREAMING to see. It was kind of hell on earth for me because I definitly hate touristic places (and to be more precise, during the holidays Uptown and Midtown is just awful), but when it’s your first time, it’s a must see in the city!
Then we went back to our hotel which was pretty great, the Hudson Hotel, located at Columbus Circle.
Next days will be up next week!
Have a great weekend guys!
Today I’ll share with you some picture from my weekend.
On saturday we celebrated the 70th birthday of my american dad, it was a lot of fun (meaning lots of food and booze), and it felt really great to have my american family reunited again!
Flore is wearing a ZARA dress – I’m wearing: ZARA shirt – UNKNOWN BRAND skirt
On sunday, it was a busy day! Family brunch, then we headed to the ZOO. We missed the birth of the Panda, but had fun anyway
After the Zoo, it was all about the Washington Mall and the monuments, and of course the White House
Then we went all the way to ChinaTown, to eat a good burger at Fuddruckers. What else?
Flore is wearing head to toe ZARA – I’m wearing: AMERICAN VINTAGE TOP – ZARA shorts – H&M purse
Or just my style. Belgian style? Maybe.
This is what I wore on wednesday to walk around downtown DC and show my sister around the city.
We went first to Cute Nails, to get my nails done (how obvious was that?). Mani-Pedi is always one of my first stop when coming to the States, it’s so nice, feels amazing and looks great. So here I am, happy face and all
Next stop was my favourite shop, Mustard Seed, where I scored some great items: an insane Carmen Marc Valvo pants, a Broadway&Broome silk top, a Topshop skirt and an Ann Taylor Loft jeans (weird I know but they fit PERFECTLY). And all that for 75$, crazy uh!?
After that we went to Chinatown, and walked around then went to metro center. Here is my sister, tourist style in Chinatown
Obligatory Cupcake stop (for her)
Flore is wearing: H&M top&skirt – ZARA sandals – OKAIDI purse
Here is the other pics for my outfit. It was basic and easy for a super-duper hot day (over 30°)
Wearing: FILLES A PAPA skirt & cap – H&M tee – ZARA purse – NEW LOOK sandals
Have a great weekend!
As you know, I just got back from France, but as you read this, I’ll be flying my way to Washington DC!
I’m bringing my 12 years old sister, Flore with me, for her first time in the USA, this is just SO exciting!
I’ll keep you updated during my two weeks there, spreading some american love.
Today though, I wanted to share some of my favourite Instagram pics from my family holidays in France
Our own little WECANDANCE party!
I think that’s the first appearance of my little star on this blog!
Fishtail braids works for kids too

I came back from 3 amazing days in Ibiza, it was just awesome. I wish I could have stayed longer!
It was really hot on the island, and it wasn’t always easy to find what to wear. On saturday, I went for a bathingsuit I bought in Thailand in January. I never had the chance to wear it up until now. I really like it!
What do you think?
Well of course, this is only for Ibiza, a place where people wear Bikini’s as actual outfits.
Wearing: Bathingsuit found in Thailand – DIESEL shorts – OASIS sandals – RAYBAN sunglasses
I found that sentence on tee for the SS summer 2014 collection of Little Marcel, and I thought it represented perfectly the second day we spent in Camargue.
We had to wake up early to get ready to go on the catamaran, but the view I had from my room made my morning way easier (I’m really not a morning person…). Once in the catamaran, it was just great. I had a great spot, with a view on the ocean, the sun was shining, it simply couldn’t have been better.
We then arrived on a deserted beach, which was just heaven on earth. The rest of the day was all about fun, relaxation and enjoying life. Our time was splitted between tanning sessions, food orgasm (tuna a la plancha, roasted mossels – seems wierd but actually delicious – fresh guacamole,…) sipping fresh rosé wine, jetskying,…
Then it was time to go back, pack our bags and leave the beautiful Camargue and Little Marcel… see you soon?
As I told you yesterday, here are my favourites for Little Marcel’s collection for next summer.
There were various collection: Women, Women Grenier (more defined and chic), Mens and Kids.
Le Grenier de Little Marcel. Love the print

Tomorrow, my second day of Little Marcel Press trip in pictures: it will be all about catamaran, the beach, the sun, tanning session and delicious food!
