Semi-cladMonday, October 29 2012




Naked limbs on the 29th of October? in Blighty? Really?! Seems to me that after two years of living in England, I have finally fulfilled my longstanding dream: I no longer feel the cold like a French girl. Bare is, alas, the chicest way to wear your legs in the fall, but until now I have merely applauded with gusto – and from afar – the courage of those who leave their trousers at home come October. OK, that is a lie. I spent the better half of my first year here complaining loudly about howinappropriatelyEnglish girlsdress as a general rule during the colder months. Jealousy can make you bitter. I am not proud of my doings, and won’t judge if you, in turn, judge me. Nonetheless, balancing volumes has always been a favourite sartorial cocktail of mine, and I must say,the (bare-)leggy mini x quilted bomber combo is quite the match made in heaven. So as I join the semi-clad-for-fall club, it is with anew-foundspring in my step that I get to show off the aforementionedjacket in action. Let’s see how long I last – the boy has given me a week.

I’m wearing a Carin Wester silk bomber (find similar here, hereand here). Mini skirt and bootsare by Zara. The angora knit is by Topshop, the ring is Cooee, and the bag is Celine.

    Bon, j'ai souvent soupiré devant tes looks mais là je suis complètement frustrée :)
    L'ensemble est superbe, je savais que tu saurais (huh) porter et assortir cette veste à la perfection.
    Mes jambes crient de grâce sous mon pantalon.

    I love that you're rocking the bare legs in winter! Opaque tights are just so…ugh. I'm putting off putting on (?) opaques for as long as is humanely possible but I'm cheating with fishnets and patterned tights.
    I'm in love with your boots as well <3

    You really do know how to suit your clothes well. Seeing you gives the impression that having skinny legs is the best rewarding feature to have. And as for those lovely boots and unisex jacket, it suits you best with your slim figure. Thumbs all the way up for a lovely ensemble.

    Amazing outfit! Love total black looks!
