Yesterday we found the cutest little pub on the canal.
How Pretty Is this view!
September is finally here, bringing with it a change of routine. Mind you I’m not quite ready to ditch the whites just yet (A bit of a rebel I admit) I’m loving the sharp contrast of wearing white against the backdrop of Fall. It’s an oxymoron isnt it? They say you shouldn’t wear white after Labour Day in America, however a little bit of individuality is my signature. Who’s with me?! 😉
Did you notice my earrings? They add just the right amount of sparkle to my look, and they take it up a notch to turn this outfit from day to chic. I was super excited to receive these gorgeous gold swagy hoops from Uno De50 as part of a collab. Im looking forward to wearing these with so many of my next seasons outfits!

Its August, and I’m sure we’ve only had 2 weeks of summer?! So with Autumn around the corner along with these chilly mornings and evenings, I feel this is the best way to transition your Summer outfit into fall. I got this amazing jacket from Joes Jeans, which is an American company. They recently teamed up with Taylor Hill for an awesome collab (here). This jacket was one of the items I adored from the collaboration, and couldnt wait for it to arrive in the post!
I teamed this jacket ‘must have’ with my “Mon Cheri” slogan sweatshirt from Joanie. I have a feeling you’re going to be seeing a lot of this sweatshirt on me, with no apologies!! It’s the softest coziest sweatshirt EVER, and the cute slogan makes it possible to pair with most things. I’m even wearing it as I type this post (and extremly tempted to sleep in it ) but I wont, well….maybe?
To complete the look grab your favorite beret, boots, red lipstick and Voila ! We are as they say ‘transitioning’! Bring on Autumn, or an Indian Summer and I’m totally okay with going back to Summer dresses. What about you?!

Hey! It’s been awhile since I posted an outfit update, but there’s a good reason for it! I’ve been getting things ready & preparing to open my Depop shop Oh Lover Vintage again. I’ve just added a few pieces to it, so check it out!! When spring hits so do all the flea markets here in France.
These quintessentially French Flea Markets are called Vide Greniers which means ‘Cleaning out the attic’!! Can you imagine all of the amazing things that are hidden in the attics of French homes? You are right if your imagination goes wild! Cruising through some of the best assortment of vintage is my kind of thing, and I always come back home with my arms full. Over the weekend I decided I was going to hit a few to search for some awesome stock for my shop, and yet again I wasn’t disappointed!
My love and understanding of vintage clothing goes back to my youth. I started as a teenager working in a ton of vintage stores all over London including Camden, Notting Hill & also Stockholm, Sweden. My favorite thing to do is to rummage through piles of old clothes to find the perfect items! Its such a thrill!!
I will do a blog post very soon for you to help you know what to look for when going to flea markets or car boot sales.
This red vintage varsity jacket with the initials A.C for American Collage is one of the pieces I came across on my treasure hunt!! If you follow me on Instagram I told you there was a secret to this jacket… Well the secret is that I paid just 3Euro for it!! I know I was shocked too!
I paired the jacket with a simple black turtle neck and some ripped Levis denim shorts. Its still not hot enough to wear just the shorts so fishnets (as always) was just the thing!
