London is one of the cities I love the most in fall. I lived there a few years ago and never miss an occasion to go back. I love to shoot with Morgane Lay, a talented Frenchy Londoner, full of positive energy. Mild autumn temperatures allowed me to wear this chic and flowy monochrome look by Nanushka.
A full monochrome look might seem hard to wear, but I believe that if done right, it can look very effortless and put together. As you’ve probably noticed before I’m a big fan of light shades monochrome looks, you can discover my summer version of light blue monochrome look here.
I believe a full monochrome outfit makes you look like you spent hours putting your look together when it only took you some second. It is the fastest way to look polished without trying too hard. It feels equally romantic, chic and sharp.
One of my “Erin off duty” favorite vacation activities has always been strolling around vintage boutiques and interior design shops, hunting for some treasures to bring home as a souvenir of the magical time spent on the spot.
I’ve spent this summer with my family in the city of angels, L.A. While on the hunt for a perfect interior treasure, we’ve passed the whole day in one of my favorite districts that Los Angeles has to offer, the Arts District in Downtown L.A.
When picking our family vacation destination this summer, we were visualizing a place that would completely make us forget about our busy daily life and would fill us up with new energy and fresh ideas for the upcoming cold days. L.A. seemed like the obvious choice.
I found this red polka dots wrap Reformation dress the perfect Erin Off Duty’s vacation companion. No buttons, no zips, no squeezing in, so easy to wear, stylish and practical for a busy day spent with kids. I love everything about it, from the cut, the color, and the silhouette.
As every true Parisienne, I’m a firm believer in beauty in simplicity. When in doubt, I love subtracting distracting elements to get down to the basics.
My rule is to focus on interesting shapes and textures while keeping it simple.
A little white dress is the perfect essential piece of Erin Off Duty’s wardrobe to wear on a hot day in the city. A solid white base leaves you with endless styling possibilities. It is one of those special pieces that go from days to nights to weekends to holidays.
When invited to the fanciest dinner party, I felt that some glitz & glamour would be appropriate for an Erin Off Duty evening.
This summer, seventies clubbing vibe and glam bling are back: nothing better than all that glow and glitter to bring up the festive shimmer, perfect to shine on summer nights.
Forget what you’ve ever been told about the evening coat. It’s now a category of your wardrobe that has segued into daylight hours.
A statement coat is a great unexpected outfit game-changer. This season dare to bring into the daylight the decadent fabrics once reserved for the evening.
Most of the time, my Erin Off Duty style gravitates toward simple and streamlined silhouettes, and I keep the color palette for the most part neutral. (I’ve been wearing jeans and shirts as a uniform).
But how can one not fall for the sweet pastels trend? Soft colors that instantly make you think of a candy shop. It’s all about sweetness; every shade makes you look and feel soft and delicate.
Once upon a time mixing sporty with smart was by far the biggest fashion ‘faux pas’ a true fashionista could do.Outfits that were once reserved for the gym have now made their way onto runways and consequently to the streets of the fashion capitals.
When you inherit some vintage treasures, do not get rid of them…E V E R.
These wardrobe golden tickets are timeless and unique and will
pass through the time like stars of your closet.
Without a doubt, jeans are the one piece of my wardrobe I rely on the most.
I can never get enough of them. There’s something effortless about them, they are extremely easy to style and super comfortable, too. That’s why every season, I continue to grow to my collection.
My recent getaway at 28 Kothi located in Jaïpur, capital of Rajasthan, was one of the most delightful experience. It actually combines a few of my favorites : Ayurvedic massages, Organic local Vegetarian food and private yoga sessions.
