The more time goes by, the more I feel like I’m being myself.
It must be a bunch of things: the stars aligning, turning forty, my book coming out soon, which is a profound moment for me (you can pre order it heeeere) and all the changes going on in my life, but as time goes by, the more I realize there’s no point looking elsewhere for what you’ve already got inside.
And it starts with style. Ok, ok, ok, I’ll stop sounding like a personal development guru now, but seriously–I take things much much much easier now. The fact that I have to detach myself a little bit from the fashion scene (I’m finalizing the French version of my book right now and, let me tell you, the nights are short)(which is why I can’t go to a lot of shows right now)(but it’s worth it! I’m really happy with the result and I hope you’ll like it, too!!!)
Anyway, I’m much more relaxed these days. For example, I knew I was coming to Paris for eight days, so I brought eight outfits, plus a few things for going out at night, nothing more, nothing less. I kept it simple.
So, they aren’t the type of outfits to bring in the street style crowds, but I feel like myself, which makes me happy, and that’s what counts.
Anyway, today I wanted to do a little recap of my outfits (we didn’t have time to take photos of all of them, but at least this gives you an idea. These aren’t like fashion week outfits, they’re just simple, easy clothes for fall (those Stella McCartney boots are unbelievably comfortable)(not to mention the J.Crew ones, chunky heels are back, hooray!) and these are outfits I feel totally myself in, and to me, that’s the best thing we can expect from fashion.
Don’t you think?
