Summer autumnal day...

So we are back into the blogging world!!!

I didn't have time to select all the pictures from our trip in Europe the 2 first weeks of August.

So you will have to wait a bit to see more about our vacation.

Since we went back, we have had the worst summer weather ever...

It's like fall in august...

Rain, cold, it's not possible to go out without a coat or jacket!

These pictures are from last week-end, would you believe it's summer?

I don't like really hot weather, but I will not be against a bit more sun...

Here is the outfit I chose for this summer autumnal day.

40's total look with my favorite mid season coat.

This vintage beret is really unbelievable!!!

I bought it in Paris in Falbalas, see here.

This 40's set comes from the same shop.

I could not believe it when I try it on, just perfect!

It's like it was made for me, exactly my size in bust, waist, hips...

A lovely color between pink and purple, so classy!

Some black accessories and I got so many compliments!!!

Did you notice these sexy retro heels?

They are from Miss L Fire... yes, another one... yes, I'm addicted... I bought them on sale, they are so comfy and finished this look perfectly!!!!

Have you seen their new AW14 collection? I have already ordered my favorite model!

My husband has already let his hawaiian shirts to go back to wool jackets and vintage ties...

But that's his favorite look!

Pictures without sun are always a bit sad...

We went to some flea markets just before this shooting...

we didn't go to many these summer because it rained almost every week-ends!

Sylvain found this nice 40's fedora in vintage shop in Amsterdam.

What I like on my outfit of that day is I could find a way to wear 3 brooches!

I really love vintage broches.... I cannot believe that nobody wear them anymore...

Plastic, lucite, celluloid, resine or bakelite are my favorites!

If they represent animals, I can not resist!!!!

How was the month of August for you?
Do you wear brooches a lot? What kind?

Nous voici de retour dans la blogosphère!!! Il faudra un peu patienter avant de pouvoir découvrir les photos de notre petit tour en Europe début août. Voici quelques photos du week-end passé... nous avons eu un temps abominable depuis notre retour, c'est déjà l'automne, on ne sort plus sans une petite laine... bien triste! Sylvain a laissé ses chemises hawaïennes au placard et j'ai ressorti les manteaux! Le chapeau et l'ensemble que je porte sont des trouvailles récentes lors de notre escapade parisienne. Le feutre de mon chéri est un souvenir d'Amsterdam lors de nos vacances. Pour les broches, le plastique, c'est fantastique... et si elles figurent des animaux, je craque... 3 dans une même tenue, j'ai fait fort!!!! Et vous, portez-vous souvent ces petits trésors oubliés?
- Bonne rentrée -
