4th BLOG ANNIVERSARY !!!!!!

Time flies... already 4 years...



All these pictures are from posts published last year,
just click on the picture to open the original post!


When you start a blog, you don't know how it will turn...


how much time you will need to make it stays alive...


find the motivation to keep going,


you sometimes feel that for just a few hundred views 


and for a few comments it isn't worth the time you spent on it.


That's why it was one of the hardest year for the blog!


I felt quite fed up to feel guilty
if I hadn't post anything for a week.


That was the same feeling of guilt
if I had no time to picture one of my outfit...


I was not that happy to make a photo shoot
 what Sylvain didn't understand.


For the first time, I took a few breaks during the year from this blog just to feel better.


For the first time I have pictures that I didn't share
(for example our nice trip in North Europe last summer)


We almost didn't take pictures at VLV in March...


I thought in june that our blog will simply die...


As a lot of bloggers my new Instagram account was remplacing the blog little by little...


less work, more interactions, more spontaneaous...


but as I'm someone who love details and precision...


I was quite sad to not share with you some details of my outfits 


and Sylvain also missed taking pictures...


So in July we found a new motivation for the blog.


But I have changed my mind about it...


This blog is not my job,


I don't HAVE TO post every week or every outfit I can wear.


I must not feel guilty to post not as often that I used to be.


I want to make quality blog posts...


and not because I HAVE TO but because I WANT TO!


Even if last year I was quite absent,
I'm quite proud of what I have posted.


Quality instead of quantity!


But of course I have some regrets...


things I wanted to share 
but didn't find motivation to finish the posts...


always that guilt that I'm trying hard to remove from my heart...


So even if I really don't know what this blog will become in the future...


I hope you still liked to read it with its up and down!


We have met so many nice people thru it around the world


that it will be sad to end it just like that!!!


So please continue to support
our little corner still lost in the 50's!


How was last year for you fellow bloggers?
How did you feel about our blog last year dear followers?

FRENCH CORNER
Et voilà, déjà 4 ans... quand j'ai commencé ce blog, j'étais absolument incapable de prévoir où cela allait nous mener... 4 ans plus tard, une routine presque malsaine s'était installée, un sentiment de culpabilité si je ne publiais rien sur le blog... ce même sentiment si je ne photographiais pas une de mes tenues... le constat était simple bloguer était devenu une charge et non plus un plaisir! Pour la première fois depuis 4 ans, j'ai pris quelques breaks, je n'ai pas posté certaines photos qui auraient pourtant mérité d'être partagées... j'ai oublié le blog pendant des semaines en essayant de gommer ce sentiment de culpabilité, j'ai même pensé en juin dernier que le blog était mort... et puis voilà un regain de motivation qui est venu sans prévenir... oui, ce serait dommage de mettre fin à une telle aventure!
Qualité plutôt que quantité, voici notre nouvelle devise! Ne pas se sentir coupables de moins publier, ce blog n'est pas notre job et cela doit rester un plaisir...
J'espère que vous avez tout de même pris plaisir à nous suivre l'année passée et malgré ces hauts et ces bas, nous sommes quand mêmes assez fiers du travail accompli!
Merci de continuer à nous soutenir, vous serez toujours les bienvenus dans notre petit coin perdu dans les années 50!!!
- A bientôt! -

Back from vacations!!!

And we are finally back from our vacations!


After some lazy days after this long trip...


we went out to enjoy this sunny day,


yes... Fall is just around the corner!


The weather is really better than what we had during our road trip...


almost 38°C (110°F) each day... CRAZY!


so now with 27°C I didn't fear to wear black...


paired with this nice 50's novelty skirt.


I wore it during our trip in the USA last year...


but it really deserves a post for itself!


Sylvain was so pleased to be able to wear ties again.


because of course you cannot wear them with 38°C!


This one is from the 30's.


A little hawaïan flair what is rare in that era.


To be back to my skirt...


its colors are quite unusual for me,


cannot believe it matches perfectly


my new set of bangles from the Pink Bungaloo!


I also have had this hat for a few years...


but never found the perfect outfit to match with...


you sometimes fall in love with some items that are so hard to match with anything...


but it's too hard to resist, you HAVE TO buy it....


CRAZY vintage addict!!!


My Girafe brooch is from Erstwilder.


Do you see their last collection?


I must tell that it's not my favorite...


I prefer their older designs just with animals.


We found a few good thrift stores during our road trip.


This yellow shirt is part of what we found!


Did you have a crazy HOT summer?
Do you also buy things that will be hard to match?

Et nous voici de retour de notre road trip!!! Après quelques jours de cocooning pour se remettre de ce périple sous des températures caniculaires, on a enfin trouvé la force de mettre le nez dehors pour profiter des derniers jours des vacances... et oui, l'automne n'est pas loin....
Après des 38° pendant des jours, 27° ne nous fait plus peur... l'occasion de sortir des vêtements un peu différents! Retour aux cravates pour Sylvain et je ressors le noir!
- A bientôt pour un compte rendu de nos vacances! -
