Do you miss like I do the academic year? The crowds of scholars with the brand-new backpacks, choke-full subway junctions and those overflowing student cafes. Being a kid, I craved for the 1st of September, which meant pulling off a way-out school uniform, reuniting with my friends and giving myself an unchangeable promise to upgrade my school grades. Never happened.
Right now my student years are over and I yearn for the whole study process : infinite hours in the library (right, maybe a bit less than that), the smell of the new books every year, the group tasks that you can never finish before the deadline… Thus, I’m always, consciously and unconsciously, in a constant hunt for the new cozy places and spaces for work. And what can I say, Paris seems to be the perfect city for those places! My vote goes to my favorite Anti-café, where you are spoiled by the unlimited cups of coffee, and the Sainte -Genevieve bibliothéque, one of the most beautiful libraries with Harry Potter-like green table lamps.
This post was written exactly in that library and, as you can notice, I was very much about the black & white outfit. There is a chance that your wardrobe is chock-full of the b&w and neutral colors just because you prefer not to rack your head about matching your color outfit. If that’s the case, you are more than welcome to the tribe! In fact, you almost can never go wrong with the black& white. The other tip is to add the contrasting fabrics like I did in today’s outfit. For instance, I would totally match this hard rock black leather Acne skirt with the soft and feminine Anine Bing tank. Viva the contrasts : velvet and denim, silk and wool, lace and leather… There are countless variations for the match! In fact, mixing up the textures is a great way to add the needed depth to the outfit and a key for more individualistic approach to your garderobe.
