EARLY WINTER WHITES

Head-to-toe black is always a simple, go-to winter style formula, but nothing beats all-white edgy look as the temperatures begin to drop. There’s nothing as reviving as styling an outfit full of winter whites.  While wearing them on a cold, grey, early winter day, you’ll instantly feel lighter and happier. You must admit that layering of winter whites from a crisp snow white to luxe cream looks so appealing and cozy. White has this luxurious, understated simplicity, so you just can’t go wrong in these monochromatic outfits.

 

For my head to toe winter white look I selected my “can’t live without” Levis vintage white jeans as the base. There really isn’t anything that doesn’t go with a great pair of white denim. I paired them up with my favorite Nanushka trenchcoat. As you’ve probably noticed before, Nanuska is the brand I’ve been lately obsessing about (fyi they just launched a pop up store at Galeries Lafayette Paris). Because of its neutral color, this trenchcoat is incredibly versatile and can be worn in any combination while still looking classy and pulled together.

THE MODERN MONOCHROME LOOK

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 a perfect for Erin off duty  look; the fastest way to look polished without trying too hard. It feels equally romantic, chic and sharp.

INTERIOR REVERIE IN DTLA

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.

CALIFORNIA LOVE

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.

PARISIAN DOLCE VITA

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.

DAYDREAMING

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.
