The statement shoulders sweatshirt





Embellished shoulders sweatshirt - Zara
Skirt - T by Alexander Wang on shopbop
Boots - Topshop (similar here)

This sweatshirt is too big for me, too delicate to care for and probably not very long lasting but I'm still loving it. Unable to explain, I know. But that's the advantage of fashion, I don't really care if my choices are irrational and I never need to explain (well, except maybe sometimes to the questioning hubby who wonders why I keep on buying shoes that are too high to walk in... oops).

I bought three sweatshirts in two weeks. The other two, a grey and a burgundy, are from Topshop and are more affordable and wearable. I think I am in a sweatshirt mood, but not printed sweatshirts which are THE trend of the moment (have you seen Kenzo's tiger sweatshirt ? Check it out here on Emilie's blog), I'm really into plain and simple sweatshirts, easy to pair with anything in your wardrobe and which can easily be dressed up with a blazer and a statement necklace.

How about you, do you have your sweatshirt collection all sorted out fall and winter ?

Ps: I couldn't resist showing my little monkey running to me when he realised that we were taking pictures outside ♥♥♥.

  4. Coucou Marta !
    Comment vas-tu ?
    Je n'ai pas posté de comm' ces derniers temps (j'étais en Chine dernièrement) mais j'ai suivi ton blog bien entendu :-)
    J'aime beaucoup tes tenues, qui sont toujours simples (dans le bon sens du terme) et chic, avec une pointe rock. Tu as vraiment les bons basiques d'une garde-robe.
    Merci aussi de nous faire partager les derniers défilés !
    La dernière photo est très touchante, comme je le disais un jour à Clara, je suis toujours émue de voir des jolies mamans avec leurs enfants... et ton fils porte les fameuses NB !!! Toute la famille est trendy.
    Bisous Marta à bientôt !

    2. Bonjour Marta !
      Oh tu vas en janvier à HK!! Quelle chance tu as, surtout c'est le royaume du shopping, tu vas pouvoir dénicher de belles choses !
      De mon côté, j'ai accompagné mon mari pour un voyage d'affaires et nous avons fait plusieurs villes: Pékin, Shanghai,HK, Nanjing, Guangzhou, etc..c'était intéressant et nous avons surtout bien mangé, rien à voir avec les restaurants chinois en Europe je trouve.
      Dis, tu as aussi acheté la veste Iro "Shena" ? Elle est belle dans ce coloris. Je me réjouis que tu puisses nous la montrer sur ton blog. La seule chose que je trouve c'est qu'elle perd ses poils cette veste !! :-)
      A très bientôt et bonne journée à toi.
      xx

  6. You have a trendy little boy - it must be in the genes! Are those little New Balance numbers he's wearing?

    Sometimes, there's no rationalising why you love something and then you go with the flow. I love the embellishments but I prefer to wear mine plainish. I'm loving sweatshirts at the moment. Just bought one from Zara. Just some animal patterns - well that's how they describe it anyway but it was love at first sight and first try!

    1. yes, he was in fact the first one to have the famous NB in the family ;)
      I'm with you with the plain sweatshirts, I just got two simple ones from Topshop which I wear much more often than the Zara one ! xx

  7. I'm totally nuts about sweatshirts at the moment. Wrote about it a couple of weeks back. I just bought a similar grey sweatshirt from H&M. Fingers crossed the quality is ok as you never know with the brand.
