Anyway, smile !

Oyé Oyé ! 
Enfin des vacances bien mérités, mais aussi déjà bien entamés. Il commence à faire bien froid sur Paris.  Certains me diraient que c'est la saison des poètes solitaires, des intellectuels mal-aimés, et de la routine malheureuse du temps de pluie, du vent fort, et des nuages grisâtres. D'autres me diraient alors, que c'est la saison du possible renouveau *pourquoi attendre le printemps?*, les arbres perdent les feuilles, celles-ci meurent pour réapparaître plus vives, plus vertes encore; une saison de changement, car on réfléchit, on se souvient avec nostalgie des moments passés, des erreurs faites, alors on prends des résolutions. *qu'on ne tient souvent pas, d'où la monotonie*
 Je fais partie des  "des autres". L'automne est définitivement ma saison préférée. 
J'aime les couleurs de cette saison, cependant je ne fais pas partie des personnes qui ne portent que du rouge, du jaune, et du marron. 
Bref, malgré le froid, gardez le sourire ;)

Oye, Oye !
Finally some well-deserved holidays ! Paris is already bitterly cold . Some would say that it is the period of  solitary poets, badly loved intellectuals and the unfortunate routine of howling wind,
rainy weather and greyish clouds. Others then, would tell us, it's the season of a 'change-aiming' *why are you all waiting for Spring ?*, trees lose their leaves: they die out to reappear more brilliant and sharper. We are reminded of past mistakes, and all, with nostalgia thus, we are willing to take some resolutions *resolutions that we often don't keep hence the monotony*
As you can see, I'm among those "others". I'm fond of these colours' season but I'm not amongst those people who only wear yellow, brown, and red. 
Anyway, despite this cold, keep on smiling guyz !

I've never been a boubou-print fan. Like, ever. My style tends to be monochromic, with some accessories thrown here and there to funky up my outfits. Even though the boubou-print is culturally prominent in Cameroon, it is more of a "working-daddy" stuff than a fashionable trend likely to be adopted by youngsters like me. Being aware of the domination of "occidental trends" over the fashion scene here, I decided to go against the "standard" and try something different; something both far from my personal style and close to my culture.
How would I do that ? By trying boubou-print of course !


This boubou-print oversized blazer is a gift of my father's. He didn't wear it anymore, so I decided to steal it from him. It was a handmade blazer which is part denim, part cotton and part woven raffia. Its vivacious colours prevented me from using any acessory (because it'd be "too much" and look tacky, in my opinion) and inspired me to couple it with this black skinny jeans that I ripped myself (#TeamDIYBabieees !). I think the best way to wear a similar highly coloured oversized top is to pair it with a skinny dark-coloured jeans and dark or burgundy derbys, instead of going barefeet like me.
What do you think ?

Blue Marine

Pourquoi bleu marine ?
Bon je dois l'avouer, je suis pas allée chercher très loin. J'ai juste pris la couleur de ce blazer fait soie, coupé sur les manches fait par ma Maman. A vrai dire, elle l'avait fait pour elle, il y a pas mal d'années mais bon, elle voulait plus le porter. Et moi qui suis fan de ses vêtements, je l'ai repris pour une seconde vie haha. 

Why "blue marine" ?
Well, uhm, I have to say, it's not really hard to figure it out haha. I just used the colour of this silk blazer, cut on the sleeves made by Mum. Truth is, she has made it for herself but she didn't want to wear it anymore so ! I took it for a second life haha.

that was funny to make !
what am I wearing:
blue silk blazer: mummy
blue shirt: H&M
black jean:Cheap Monday
shoes: Salamander
