A new personal style

Hi there! It’s been a long time right? Today I would like to talk to you about something completely different and personal. My clothing style.

I’ve been all over the place in my adult life and I have a tendency to just dress comfortably and don’t worry too much about the way I look. But I feel things changed in the last three years.

Lately I like more sweet and feminine styles. My house is becoming more dreamy, my work is getting full of arabesques and details, I like things with more patterns and creativity.

I asked myself: why am I still using jeans and plain t-shirts?

There are a lot of reasons for that. I can list a few:

  • I just bought “work clothes” and my work was very informal
  • I didn’t give priority for “clothes to go out” with friends or family
  • I don’t like shopping for clothes
  • I was not taking care of myself properly

Wow! It was not easy to see the truth! But with that on mind, I started to act.

I made a huge clean in my closet and made a list of the things I need. I realize I need more clothes for social events (like visiting friends and family) and for my everyday activities. Nothing fancy actually, just simple, more feminine clothes.

So I’m going to start by sewing a few skirts and dresses for everyday use. Check this lovely project I found on Burda website:

Just perfect for this fall/winter! I can’t wait to find some good fabric and make them! I hope to feel more comfortable with the way I present myself to the world.

How about you? Do you feel sometimes you can’t recognize the person looking at you in the mirror? Tell me in the comments!

Inspiring décor and style from 80s and 90s

It’s a lovely long weekend here in Canada and I took some time to watch old movies and search for some decorations and art ideas. I confess, I love decoration and fashion style from the 80s and 90s. It’s a bit over but it feels so cozy and cute. My top picks from this long weekend are:

You’ve Got Mail lovely decoration

It’s been 22 years and we are still in love with Kathleen Kelly house. Lots of botanical art, warm tones, floral pillows, greens and oranges. Walls molding and trims everywhere and a ton of detail. One day I have to do a deeper analysis of her style. Here is a quick peak.

I really love the have French door in the kitchen, the cute little ornaments in her curtains, the amazing china cabinet and the vitral window in her entrance hall. What a dreamy place!

Mrs. Doubtfire warm and cozy house

I actually don’t like this movie and was not able to watch it all again, but I really like the house and the decoration with warm tones of beiges, oranges and greens. It feels very cozy and warm. The movie is from 1993 (click on the images to see details)

I cant get over her cute kitchen with lots of ornaments, the great green sofa cover and curtains everywhere. Super cozy.

Heartburn amazing 80’s style

Last but not list, is not only the décor but the fashion style. Take a look on the amazing clothes Meryl Streep wears in this Nora Ephron movie. I want them all! (click on the images, it’s just so good)

My mom was pregnant from my sister in 1986 and she dressed exactly like that! I’m not sure if I like so much for the nostalgia of those times but seriously, I need that grey linen blazer. Her house was also charming but she never finish her decoration, what is a shame, it would have looked beautiful.

I hope you had fun in this back to the past style and decoration. I’m so inspired! I know my house and my style shouldn’t look exactly like that but I really want to use some of these ideas. Keep in touch and thanks for visiting!
