The grey sweatshirt and pastel jeans

Grey sweatshirt - Topshop
Pastel mint jeans - Zara
Leather jacket (old) - Muubaa
Boots - Isabel Marant
Nails Chanel

One more outfit post and more mint, I guess mint is really this season's "it-color"... I got these jeans from Zara and even though I love the color I think the fit is not the best. I'm keeping them because I removed the tags already (damn!) but I don't recommend them at all.

As for the grey sweatshirt, I have been looking for one for some time and hesitated strongly between topshop's grey sweatshirt and the original design from Etoile Isabel Marant. In the end I opted for the first and I'm very happy with my choice. Don't get me wrong, I love designer clothes but I need to be down to earth and sometimes go for the cheapest option (as my husband would say, now that I got my dicker boots, I'll be buying from Zara until the end of the year...).

I think a grey sweatshirt is a safe buy this season because you can wear it with everything. I've been wearing mine all the time, to work with a blazer and with pastel jeans for a relaxed sunday outfit. If you look for a grey sweatshirt, check out my girl Jane's blog post on the hunt for the perfect sweatshirt, if you don't find your happiness there I don't know where you will...

If you're looking for pastel jeans, I don't think you would have any trouble finding a perfect pair, but if you lack inspiration, check out my post on Spring denim trends for some ideas.

Thanks for passing by and have a great week !!

  1. j'aime tout de A à Z mais mention spéciale pour le sweat j'adore ( différent de mon étoile car plus long) et le pantalon, superbe! et les boots !!!!

  2. Beautiful outfit!I'm always in love with a simple grey sweatshirt, you can't go wrong with it. I'm a new follower for sure, I love your style!

  3. @valentina, oh merci merci, je rougis :) oui, j'ai vu que le sweat topshop est plus long que ton etoile mais je crois que c'est à peu près pareil au niveau des bras!

    @sara: grazie Sara, you're sweet. Thanks so much for passing by, I'll follow you too, I love your street style pictures :) xx

  4. I love zara pants but they don't fit me al all!! I try them on almost every time I go to the store (that's not often because I buy online) and I never happy with them...but they do look great on you! I love the color!

  5. J'aime bcp les couleurs de tes Dicker. je ne les ai trouvé qu'en camel (je voulais des Taupe) et en anthracite et me voilà bien servie. Il est super ton sweat: un beau tombé. Moi je les aime, mais j'ai du mal à les porter (j'en ai 2 que je mets rarement).

  6. @clochet: oh thanks, but I don't think they fit me so well... maybe you see the illusion of the pictures :) but the color is gorgeous and the price just irresistible ! thanks for droping by xx

    @marie: merci :) j'ai trouvé mes dickers online dans un magasin allemand: ils sont super sympa et service clientèle 10/10. seul pb, les dickers sont un peu plus chères qu'en magasin. je ne sais pas s'ils ont encore ta taille mais ça vaut le coup d'essayer si tu les cherchent toujours.

  7. I really am a Materials Scientist! I studied it as an undergrad and I'm now in my final year of a PhD project! Although the research now is probably more theoretical physics than materials science. I thought I was the only one!! We should have a mini conference or something...


  8. impressive... I don't I'll follow though, theoretical physics, that wasn't an easy one... :)

  9. .... i must confess.... not that i went for a colored jeans.... but as it seems my personal shopper in paris (lol) is able to get her hands on the mole dicker boots within the next week... HURRAY! i'm making a lot of use of the camel pair but i was looking for this color - some call it taupe - but i'm already attached to the lighter grey color as "taupe" they're calling eventually "green" this year... hm. however - dark taupe or mole is on the way!
    i'm totally with you and with sweaters this year. i've went for one from ZARA TRF (with faded Union Jack made of flowers) - it's gorgeous. But I wouldn't mind a plain one.... I'm letting go of two more Etoile Isabel Marant sweaters - I need a size 1 or 2 - both are a size 2 - but soooo short, too short for my funny constructed body, hehehe. Thanks for sharing your favorite series with me and us - part 2 is online since today - and you're mentioned on top!
    Happy Wednesday to you!
