STANDING BY THE BEACH






L'ironie veut qu'au moment où je rédige cette article il pleut des cordes. La joie des été parisiens me direz-vous. Le week-end dernier je suis retournée à Ouistreham accompagnée de ma fidèle acolyte Léa, du blog Léanosphère. Nous avons, le temps d'une journée, pu profiter du soleil et de la plage, loin de la chaleur étouffante de Paris. Et j'ai rapporté de notre escapade, en guise de souvenir, un serre-tête Minnie (qui fait de la lumière!) fièrement gagné à la fête foraine du coin. Bah quoi ? Il faut savoir retourner en enfance parfois non ?
It is pouring rain outside while I am writing this, ironic isn't it? Last weekend I went back to Ouistreham with Léa, from Léanosphère. We enjoyed the sun and the beach, played at the fun fair and ate a lot of churros, crepes, and sweets. It felt great to be away from the parisian sultriness even though it was only for a day. I love Paris but staying here during summer can be the worst thing ever. Also, I wanted to get out of my comfort zone by taking some pictures in swimsuit. I am not 100% confident with my body, so that was quite challenging and it was certainly the reason why I kept my cardigan on. 


Pour cette journée à la plage je voulais une tenue qui soit à la fois facile à enlever et à remettre, histoire de ne pas perdre trop de temps dans les cabines (alias les toilettes bien dégoûtantes). J'ai donc enfilé une jupe qui allait parfaitement avec le ton de mon maillot de bain et un cardigan pour affronter les fraîches soirées normandes. Ma pièce favorite de cette tenue reste mon maillot de bain trouvé chez H&M. Un achat un peu coûteux mais que je ne regrette pas (si vous saviez combien de temps j'ai trimé pour mettre la main sur un maillot avec un motif de ce genre), je pense qu'il m'accompagnera encore pendant quelques années !
Because I was going to the beach I wanted something that I could take off and put on easily. I chose to wear a mint skirt over my swimsuit and a cardigan because evenings in Normandie can be windy. My favourite item of this look is certainly the swimsuit. I have been searching for a suimsuit with this type of print for months, and when I found it I was so relieved! It was a bit expensive but I think it will last me forever. And yes, I am wearing a winter cardigan with a suimsuit, but as you may know it if you have read my last post, there is no such labels in my wardrobe. I wear everything, everytime of the year. So, if you want to wear a fluffy cardigan in summer go for it!
