the french connection

now that spring has decided to stay, it's time to recharge the batteries. I spent the weekend soaking up some sun, strolling down sunny streets, thrift shopping, reading a book in open air and plain enjoying life outside the apartment. it's comforting to put on a pair of jeans, a top and a light jacket and enjoy some good weather for a change. the weekend is the time to sleep in, relax and wear comfortable, effortless clothes. to me the french best embody effortless chic, so I kinda drew inspiration from that to put together a relaxed weekend look: the stripped shirt, the rolled up skinny jeans, the faux oxfords and the high bun. I felt indeed quite french walking around in this little ensemble. la vie est belle, n'est-ce pas?

jacket: clockhouse, thrifted * top: h&m, thifted * jeans: vero moda, thrifted * shoes: red lips

here's a bonus, my favorite graffiti in the city :)
