lundi 3 septembre 2012


For me, September is even better than New Year. 

It starts perfectly with my birthday: attention and affection, gifts and delicious cakes with champagne. 

Then comes that anticipation: preparing for the colder season. It's going back to the manic urban rythmn but also getting ready for that "nesting" cocooning time when what's inside is as important as the outside:

Putting away the fleeting summer house props, bringing back plaid blankets and heavier curtains. 
Storing away the hot weather light clothes and restocking necessary basics (thermal tee, scarf, hat, socks) and catching up with fashion weeks proposals for summer 2013! 
Enjoying a walk in the chilly air to have the pleasure of a hot cup of jasmine tea. 
Going for a sunday morning run and then crawling back under blankets to watch my favorite tv shows.

Little pleasures I'm looking forward to this month:
  • a few days of rest,
  • keeping up with the living room and maybe my bedroom makeovers
  • Downton Abbey season 3 (Can't wait for Shirley and Maggie's cutthroat dialogues !!)
  • Jazz à la Villette festival (jazz festival in La Villette in the 19th arrondissement of Paris)
  • "Paris vu par Hollywood" (Paris as seen by Hollywood) exhibition
  • "Home" by Toni Morrisson, "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn and "La Vie sans fards" by Marise Condé are on my to read list. 
  • on my to watch list: "The Campaign", "Savages", "Lawless", "The Bourne Legacy", "Premium Rush" and then "Looper" in october: my JGL fix. 
  • Wearing my new stuff: an Etoile leather jacket, Maje grey sweater and bringing back the old, like this one year old knit.

pull/sweater: Camaieu - tshirt, jeans: h&m - sandales/sandals: Birkenstock "Gizeh" - bag/sac: Balenciaga - lunettes de soleil/sunglasses: Ray Ban's Wayfarer

Pour moi, septembre est encore mieux que la nouvelle année.

Le mois commence idéalement avec mon anniversaire avec des marques d'affection et d'attention, des gâteaux et du champagne.

Puis vient l'anticipation, la préparation pour le changement de saison. 

C'est le retour à un rythme frénétique mais aussi se préparer pour cette période de cocooning, quand l'intérieur devient aussi important que l'extérieur :

Mettre de côté la déco estivale pour ressortir les plaids et les rideaux plus épais,
ranger les vêtements légers et restocker les basiques nécessaires (tshirt isolant, écharpe, chapeau, chaussettes) et suivre l'actualité des fashion weeks pour l'été 2013!
apprécier une promenade dans un air frisquet pour avoir le plaisir d'une bonne tasse chaude de thé au jasmin,
aller courir le dimanche matin puis me lover sous les couvertures pour regarder mes séries tv préférées.

Les petits plaisirs que j'attends ce mois:
  • quelques jours de repos
  • continuer les travaux dans mon salon et dans ma chambre et redécorer
  • la saison 3 de Downton Abbey ( j'attends avec impatience les échanges entre Maggie et Shirley!)
  • Jazz à la Villette 
  • l'expo "Paris vu par Hollywood"
  • "Home" de Toni Morrisson, "Gone Girl" de Gillian Flynn et "La vie sans fards" de Maryse Condé sont sur ma liste de lecture,
  • A voir au ciné: "Moi Député", "Savages", "Lawless", "Bourne: L'héritage", "Premium Rush" et puis "Looper" en octobre: ma dose de JGL, 
  • Porter mes nouvelles fringues et ressortir les "vieilleries" comme ce pull en maille de l'année dernière, ci-dessus.

  1. On Lawless, nothing mind blowing, but enjoyable to watch, and a great cast. One of the actors has an UNCANNY resemblance to Leonardo DiCaprio from What's Eating Gilbert Grape. If nothing else, TH is very, very handsome in this one. Looper previews weird me out, I know it's JGL, but the face looks like a bizarre edward norton.

    Great jeans! and Happy Birthday!

    1. Thanks for the birthday wishes! I had a great time for once!
      I'm completely biased regarding Tom Hardy and JGL, so good for them I'll see any movie they're in!

  2. you look fantastic! love the cuffed skinnies with your gizehs! i get so excited for September and the entire sequence of early fall - late fall - early winter/holidays every year. and i cannot wait for S3 of Downton !

    1. I should be the one thanking you for introducing me to the wonderful gizehs! Once I tried them on, I was won over. Too bad I had to put them away a few days ago.

  3. Lovely look!!! I can't wait for DA too but I'll have to wait longer than you. I also can't wait to see your new IM jacket.

  4. I love the look! I'm also looking forward to bringing out the old, and some new fall pieces. You got the jacket, can't wait to see it!

  5. You are so pretty, and you look amazing in Birkenstocks!

    1. Thank you D! I would never have thought to become a Birkenstocks convert but the shoes are so comfortable and I actually like the design and color I picked so much!

    2. You're very welcome. I'd love to see you wearing some Birks, such as these, with socks.

    3. I wish fall wasn't so wet down here to pull it off but I like the kind of rustic look you get with socks paired with earthy sandals.

  6. love this look and also your blog! It's so nice!!! I follow you!
    Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D
