This week has been a little bit hectic, and that's the reason - plus it's really pouring down out there - I didn't post a look. Since, it's Winter time, and I can't find a moment - or someone - to shoot - and trying to solve this problem - I though I will talk about Seasonal Trends.

Law school on one hand, and trying to do the most of my blogger journey, I usually spend a lot of time on online shops as Asos, Topshop and even Zara or Shopbop.
I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only one in the game of Wishlists - I have a wishlist for every trend and I know that even if I can't afford everything, I will spend some time to decide which piece I need in my wardrobe. I developed a bunch of rules I live by when it comes to shopping online and especially when it comes to the subject of "what do I need". It's just so nice to have all my "wanted" pieces of clothes on one page, so I just know what I'm looking for. So, I wanted to share with you my personal favorite items for the season.

I've always had trouble to wear with confidence a pencil skirt. This kind of skirt could be very treacherous for your shape. I've been starting to like them a little more since I found out which ones enhance my silhouette without making me shorter than I am already. You need to pick a sleek plain pencil skirt which is not too tight as a bodycon dress is. I was literally scrolling through my personal favorite online shops and some blogs when I found this one from The Fifth and from Mango - which I got, and I can't wait to show it to you. There are so much I would love to show you so you can pick the best for your own shape - it's a must have for me, even if Winter is right around the corner. I love wearing one with a big jumper, and play with the cut and shapes of those two pieces. Don't you agree that printed one or lace one are just the best thing ever?

The thing about Fashion Month is that you're get all excited about new trends. Rule #2 concerns those type of trends: when you know that you won't wear a specific outfit or piece of clothes on a period of two years, you know that it's a trend that won't last, at least for you. Some trends are very not attractive, but some are quite exciting - and that's the case for the Sixties trend. I love wearing cute sleek cut dresses, which will enhance your shape in a way you didn't imagine. The power of clothes can be sometimes pretty amazing.

Little pastel sequins dresses or dresses with a scuba high neck are quite the thing I'd love to wear. What about a really 60s inspired checked duster coat? I'm trying not to buy all of those things, trust me I'm finding this pretty hard.

At first, I was pretty skeptical about this trend, because I though it was quite "mean" if you know what I mean, for the people who don't care about what they're wearing.
Then, I started to embrace this all new trend for just one reason - it's so easy, chilly style, that without a doubt, I'll wear those kind of thing everyday because I know that's perfectly in accord with what I love about Fashion. The perfection of this trend for me, lies in the fact that it's timeless. And that's the rule I follow when it comes to my wardrobe - and maybe it's my Parisian sense of life which's talking... Wear a long sleeves grey dress and you're up to go! Normcore says 'I have soul and intelligence. I'm unique and I don't need to shout about it."

As a matter of fact, living in Paris is quite nice, but when Winter is finally here, all you want to do - and I bet it's the case for everyone living in Europe - is snuggling under a big fluffy cover and never get out until Spring is back. 
I guess that's the reason why all I want to wear is black. Black is essential, and it's so easy to dress in the morning when all you have to throw is a pair of ripped black jeans, some booties and cute little button down shirt.

For what it's worth, I'd wear this kind of outfit everyday - but since I can't, I try to vary and I got my inspiration from website like PinterestLe 21èmeWhoWhatWear, and bloggers like Harper and Harley or Zanita.
