Effet de grandeur

Empire state of mind is the feeling you get when looking at the Empire State Building ! Ok, not as romantic as the Eiffel Tower, but it carries a lot of weight !!! I mean, it’s the Empire State Building, one of the biggest landmarks in New York City !! For nearly 40 years, it was the tallest building worldwide, until the World Trade Center north tower took over ! With its 102 floors and observation deck, the Empire State is now part of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World ! Even though I prefer the panoramic view from The Top of the Rock (as you can add the Empire State Building into the scenery !), the view you get from the observation deck is breathtaking !! The top part is always illuminated with white lights at night unless it’s a holiday or an important date, then it will change its colours accordingly (I saw a light party once, it was pretty impressive !!) ! By no means is it the prettiest building, but I never get tired of catching a glimpse of it !

This look is definitely not one of those you put together for grocery shopping !!! With time, you will probably notice that my outfits are, more often than not, casual chic. Simple, effortless yet elegant and charming ! Once in a while, I go all out in a more glamorous look, but today, I took it to the next level !! I felt like trying something different !! Cause different is good !!! You can still sense my personality with this outfit but on a more subtle note. And I have to say, I absolutely adore the look !!! First, I never thought that one day, I would wear stripes over stripes, let alone vertical stripes paired with horizontal ones !!! But the patterns are so similar, that when I put it on, I felt like they were meant to be worn together !!! The bottom is also a first ! The sheer fabric, is actually just sheer fabric that in my young creative years I put together and used to wear as a skirt over dresses or other skirts. But never pants, until today !!! And I don’t know why I never thought of trying it !!! It adds so much character and edginess to any pair of trousers !! Mine is DIY but you could use a swimsuit cover-up ! Don’t be afraid of trying new styles, you might impress yourself and discover a new side of your personality !!!

On that note, thanks for passing by and wish you all a wonderful Tuesday !! ♥
