Ready to celebrate the coming of the New Year? I will be in the Swiss Alps, wearing a casual-chic and above all, warm outfit. However, I want to share a more special look with you. Over a skinny black jeans and turtleneck top, I slip on a glitter star sheer dress. A black coat tops… Read More »

Why need a reason to dress up? Any occasion is good to look fashionable, starting from the most common activity: grocery shopping. I previously shared a similar styling story, so let’s continue with the “Grocery Shopping in Style” series! Heels are an obvious no-no for hauling heavy shopping bags. As for the bag, I go… Read More »

Enwrapped in Golden Light

We have been blessed this fall/winter with magical natural light to shoot my outfits. For one shoot, we went one late morning to a rooftop in downtown Lausanne. Inès caught my outfit in the mist of the golden light which seem to enwrap me. I was in an all-black mode with H&M skinny jeans and… Read More »

How to Wear Wide Leg Pants

Over the years, we have gotten used to skinny and slim bottoms. Now, large- or straight-cut have taken over the store shelves. That is a potential problem for those of us who do not happen to own a pair of long endless legs. I have shown you how culottes can actually be more easily styled… Read More »

Simple Is The Key

We are often tempted to buy an extravagant and colorful item just because it is trendy. I often fall into this trap and then notice how I tire of flamboyant pieces rather quickly.

Its multiple speed and heat settings, two concentrator nozzles, and diffuser make it capable for all hair types.… Read More »

What I value the most during Christmas and New Year are the memories created with friends over good food, a good party, with good music of course. Appropriately for these events, I am happy to collaborate with Ultimate Ears to organize the last Advent giveaway! * Be the lucky one to WIN a UE ROLL… Read More »

My Instagram or Snapchat (@blaastyle) posts let on how I love to hang out at le Café des Artisans in Lausanne. They are a family business run by brother and sister team, Amaya and Iggy who welcome each visitor like a friend. I usually like to go in the late afternoon or evening. But Inés… Read More »

This is a big year for Caran d’Ache – their 100th anniversary. To honor this heritage, Paul Smith collaborated with the Swiss brand on their cult “849” pen – “I’ve used a Caran d’Ache pen for many years and to celebrate the 100th anniversary I have selected 10 totally unique colors. I hope you like… Read More »

Easier to Wear Than You Think

I was convinced culottes (pants) would never fit my silhouette. It may not seem so in my pictures but I am not leggy-tall. So 3/4 length and large cut bottoms tend to make me look even smaller and chubbier. Furthermore, I thought they wouldn’t match my style. Putting my prejudice aside, I decided to give… Read More »
