Around my new BRACELET....

We had a quite nice week-end...


but with nothing really planned.


That was not a bad thing as I was a bit tired with all those travels in the past weeks!


So here is what we wore to go to... grocery store!


As I have already mentionned in this blog...


I build my outfit around one accessory or a piece of clothes that I really want to wear.


This time it was this GORGEOUS bracelet!!!


It's a creation from Marie-Christine PAVONE.


It is made of galalith an older plastic than bakelite.


I found it in a small shop in Paris...


Not cheap but I fell in love immediatly!!!


So my outfit had to turn arount purple and green... 


Nice that I could also wear 2 of my new finds from our parisian trip!


This white polka dots scarf and


this SO nice bakelite brooch!


My dress was a simple 50's cotton one.


One more touch of purple with this vintage purse...


and a touch of green with these Miss L Fire shoes!


I love to create the perfect combo for my outfits,


it's like making a puzzle together!


I think my husband has the same feeling.


You will one more time notice that we matched!!!


So I asked Sylvain why he chose these colors.


He told me that he was perhaps influenced by my outfit...


as I prepared mine earlier in the morning!


Do you know a lot of men that will wear purple???


I think that colors like this one or even pink look good on men...


I'm happy to see that my hubby wore them with style!


I hope that I will be able to wear my new bracelet again soon!


How do you buid your outfits ?
Do you like pink and purple on men ?

Rien de bien excitant le week-end dernier, mais cela fait du bien de se reposer de temps en temps! Voici donc nos tenues pour... aller faire les courses!!! Je voulais absolument porté un nouveau bracelet trouvé lors de notre escapade parisienne... jolies couleurs, mais pas faciles à assortir: mauve et vert! Voici donc l'harmonie que j'ai trouvé pour mettre en valeur cette nouvelle acquisition! Vous remarquerez que Sylvain et moi sommes à nouveau assortis... je lui ai donc demandé s'il avait "copié" comme ma tenue était prête dès le matin... il semble qu'il se soit inconsciemment laisser influencer! Un homme portant du mauve avec classe, ça ne court pas les rues!!!
- A bientôt -

The HAPPIEST PLACE on EARTH!!!!

We spent next week-end in Paris...


of course, we enjoyed a bit the city,


and visited some flea markets,


but our main goal was...


THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH!!!!


DISNEYLAND


We were lucky with weather...


but a lot of people had the same idea than us:


enjoying the park under the sun!


Magic Kingdom and Disney studio were SO crowdy!!!


I became really nuts with all these lines for attractions!!!


We have been many times to Disneyland...


so we know quite well all attractions.


But I didn't want to miss "Ratatouille"


that we never experienced.


We had to wait 80 minutes!!!!


The show was nice but REALLY too short for 1.5 hour of waiting!!!!


So we decided to just enjoyed the outside scenery!


Here was my outfit for this special day:


you cannot wear a plain dress to visit Mickey!


This 50's circle skirt was my MASTER piece!


I was feeling a bit like....


this dancing hippo!!!!


Even if we are usually not buying anything...


I love visiting all shops in main street!


And this time I treated myself....


with this lovely Minnie's pin!


It was so hot that Sylvain couldn't wear anything else


 than a hawaiian shirt!


This castle is just so beautiful...


it's really the symbol of this Magic Kingdom!


We had almost the same success than Disney's characters among visitors!


So many of them asked them for pictures!!!


Even if we could not enjoyed a lot of attractions...


I was happy to be able to visit my favorites!


The Small World...


and the Phantom Mansion!


At that time of the year, a lot of places were closed for restoration...


that's a shame when you see the price of the entrance!!!


Fortunatly we had discounted tickets.


In fact we chose that week-end to go


because of the rock'n roll Disney festival!


Some nice cars are displayed...


we have been there with ours vintage cars 3 times already...


There are also free rock'n roll concerts for 3 days!


And you can enjoy a real burger at Annette's diner!!!


Have you ever been dissapointed with Disneyland ?
Which ones have you already visited around the world?

Nous sommes montés à la Capitale ce week-end pour quelques jours. Au programme: un peu de tourisme, du shopping et le but de notre visite: Disneyland! C'est toujours un plaisir de se rendre àdans "l'endroit le plus heureux sur Terre", surtout sous un beau ciel bleu! Malheureusement, nous n'étions pas les seuls à avoir eu cette idée... je ne crois pas avoir jamais vu le parc aussi bondé! La seule attraction que je ne voulais pas manquer: "Ratatouille"... bilan 1.5 heure d'attente pour 5 minutes de plaisir... au final, un peu déçue car bien trop court! Nous avons donc pris le parti de simplement nous balader et profiter des décors magiques! Nous avons tout de même pu visiter 2 de nos attractions favorites: Small World et la maison hantée. Nous avons fini la journée en beauté au festival Rock'n Roll Disney avec au programme voitures US et concerts gratuits!
