Pictures by Inès Monnet Like for most of you, Sunday is my lazy day to feel snug (as a bug in a rug) with zero fancy makeup. If I need to stroll downtown, I will go for a cool girly outfit. Here I layer a Topshop denim jacket over an old white Sandro dress. I… Read More »

Pictures by Inès Monnet Inès and I shot this outfit in Place Saint François, the main “square” of Lausanne center. The neo-classic architecture of the buildings goes rather well with the outfit. You too have probably noticed how Gladiators Sandals are now hot. I couldn’t resist getting this Topshop pair from Zalando. I style it… Read More »

Pictures by Inès Monnet I enjoy writing about the outfits I like, but being able to style them with real audiences adds to the fun.
