It is a rainy day today. My plan was to walk around the city and do some shopping so I prepared my outfit for the day: brown leather skirt and “powder pink” tops…

A Frenchic restaurant: “le train bleu”

Before Christmas I went to eat at a fantastic place: le restaurant Le train bleu in Paris at the train station Gare de Lyon. As soon as you enter the place you feel like travelling in a train enjoying the food in a majestic décor. I do not need to write more….just enjoy the pictures!

The Frenchic look of the month: January 2016

The Frenchic look of the month“: this is  a new category I am starting this year!
Every month I will present you a personal outfit. I do not have a wardrobe “à la Carrie Bradshaw” but seriously… how many women have? And to be honest I do not care because I want this blog to reflect who I am, what I like, what inspires me.

This month I would like to focus on this great “bleu marine” sweater dress I bought on sales at H&M. It is simple, not to tight, not to big and very comfy!

On the pictures I wear it with a dress but you can also wear it with slim jeans.

I like the round shape on both sides which makes it more feminine and elegant.

A Frenchic artist: Claire Basler

Finally it is Saturday! It is cold outside but the sun is shining…
While starting the day with coffee, jazz music on and surfing on Pinterest I have just discovered the French artist, Claire Basler and I totally fell in love with her work!

Claire draws and paints mostly flowers, trees in a very romantic way. She bought a Château, Le Château de Beauvoir, and renovated it in a French chic but very personal way. Her wall paintings in Le Château are majestic! Enjoy the pictures (from http://www.clairebasler.com)

As I like to draw and paint flowers and trees as well the work of Claire Basler is definitely a great source of inspiration for me. I have ordered her book and will keep an eye with her exhibitions…
