Here is is the deuxième partie of the shoot with Dacy.
It has been a few weeks since we did this shoot. We shot this back at the beginning of March I think. The weather was still in that awkward stage where it wasn’t too cold or too hot. In other words it was perfect. Ironically enough, I’m writing this as I am cuddling with all my blankets. The weather right now is odly cold for Texas.
This outfit is perfect for that awkward time of the year when it’s too hot to wear a coat/sweater in doors but it can be rather chilly if you spend a good amount of time outside without one. For this outfit I chose the rather oversized knit sweater by Maison Martin Margiela for H&M. It is warm enough to wear outside, but at the same time, because it is knit, it allows air to go through the yarn keeping you warm and cool simultaneously. My favourite feature of the sweater is its neck. I love the V-neck shape which it always makes me think of a bath robe! This unusual allusion I find interesting. The pants and the loafers are simple enough to emphasize the sweater.
Thanks so much for all the responses to the question I posted on Dacy’s post. For those that might not remember I asked:
What is something about your style that sets it apart from the world and makes your style YOURS?
I was gladly surprised to see all your answers. I hope you didn’t think I wasn’t going to share mine with you!
I find it very hard to have a very singular style. Especially when most of my clothes aren’t one of a kind outfits and when the shirt I’m wearing could be worn by thousands of other people at the same time because it was mass produced. Here is where personality comes in. Yeah, I can be wearing the same clothes someone else is wearing but it is how you are wearing them that makes you look apart from the person next door. Confidence is the key. I buy clothes that I feel comfortable in. It doesn’t matter if it’s a sweater for a men or a women, if I see it and I like it, I will most likely get it. It also doesn’t hurt to maybe do some thrift shopping and find some vintage garments that might not be the thing that’s in at the moment, but that you can easily see your personality channeled through them. Also I keep in mind that my style is not set in stone. It is always changing. Everyday I see things that capture my eye and that little by little I add to my closet. To resume: make your clothes yours by wearing them with confidence! And with that I’ll leave you until next time.
À très bientôt,
