beauté de la mode

{ meaning fashion loveliness }

Two simple words murmured in French make me smile:  'La mode', meaning in fashion.  I've always enjoyed clothes shopping, getting dressed up, trying on shoes, and trading clothes with friends... in short, I've always loved fashion.  Ever since a very young age. 

Floral-patterned scarves given that your great grandma used to wear, and a striped shirt from H&M.  Oh yes, this combination makes perfection.

Jean shorts, pearl earrings, a vintage scarf, a striped shirt and the perfect messy bun...
 Choosing styles I like and wearing them together is so much fun. 

What is your style?  Loose, fun, and free?  -- Sophisticated and up-to-date? -- 1950's {{vintage}}?

    I don't really have a certain style - fashion isn't my strongpoint, lol. But great post anyway!

  4. Mmm...Well, for starters, I'm completely loving the outfit you described in this post! I'm definitely a messy bun type--though, I also like to wear my hair down. I like to add a little bit of vintage quirkiness into most of my outfits. I've got a pair of thick-rimmed black glasses that I like to wear a lot of the time. I'm also a scarf junkie--I've got a bunch, but they capture my eye everywhere I go! I like grey a lot, as well as all different patterns. I suppose if I had to put a label on my style, it would be vintage/hippie. I don't really have a ton of clothes that fit into that category right now...but it's definitely the style that I'm drawn to.

    Fun post! :)

  5. I'm a big fashion fan too! My style is constantly changing, depending on my mood:-) xoxo
