Spring is just around the corner. Cherry blossoms have started to bloom. Days are getting longer and the temperature is rising slowly but surely. For this photoshoot, I went to the 20th arrondissement of Paris at villa l'Ermitage. This hidden spot is so peaceful. You won't hear any traffic noise just the sound of birds singing. It's worth a quick visit if you're in the area.
I'm a tomboy at heart that's probably why I love creating looks with menwsear pieces so much. I took a fresh approach by creating a modern outfit with second-hand pieces. The best way to find a good oversized blazer is to shop in the men's section. That's where I found this light brown striped blazer. I always look for blazers with shoulder pads because it adds a certain structure to the silhouette. I bought it last year for 3 euros! Then, I have layered a white ribbed top from H&M underneath. I got it last December for 3 euros as well. To break up the neutral tone, I added a black pantsuit. I have had it for quite a while. It only cost me 5 euros.
To accessorize a little bit, I carried a faux leather crocodile bag from Nasty Gal. I bought it on sale for 12 euros. Lastly, I'm wearing my absolute favorite shoes. I have already styled these chunky derby shoes right here. They're from Amazon (15 euros).
