Autumn... Sunday... Shopping and playing with my little boy in Mayfair. Yes, I'm a simple girl, little things make my day. Especially when it's the ultimate day off, the weather is bright but crisp and I'm in walking distance of a Louboutin shop. We don't often go to Mayfair with Little Monsieur, it's usually an expedition that I do on my own, for lack of girlfriends (the whole SATC girl posse thing is an unattainable myth, for international working girls like me, it seems), but this week-end I had to pick up a pair of felt pumps that I had left to be mended by the new Louboutin cobbler and I figured we could go for a little Sunday walk in the neighbourhood.
So, now you know what I consider a lovely Sunday afternoon, let's talk about what I like to wear for such easy-going times... It's rather simple, really. A pair of super comfy boyfriend jeans, not super flattering, I'll admit, but you know sometimes it's about comfort and practicality, more than flattering shapes. I love a boyfriend cut for casual days, it's great to fool around in the park with Little Monsieur and lounge on my sofa whilst writing these pages. I know I'm probably killing a myth you had in your heads about me dressed head to high heels in some uber-elegant get-up whilst writing this but bearing in mind my blogging often happens after a full day at work, two commutes, and one tiger run-around with Little Monsieur, well, nobody's perfect.
I did however try to dress it up a bit, with a jewelled tee and a little jacket, and my raspberry ballerinas. Have I managed to look super stylish? No, I don't think I did. But sometimes style comes after lots of other things, and frankly I don't like to strut around looking like I spent three hours of my Sunday getting ready instead of spending some precious time with my two guys. So there you have it, my take on a super-simple outfit. What do you think? Like? Not really? Pass?
