Hello my lovely people,

I hope everyone is doing great, had an awesome weekend and ready to tackle this week ahead! Today I want to make you discover one of the cutest local shops I’ve ever been to. I’m sure you’ve already heard about it or already been there. But, if you haven’t, I hope after reading this post you will want to drop by sometime soon. For the time being, I invite you to have a look of L’Appret Midi through my camera lenses.

I was welcomed by the beautiful Sandiana, who is the owner of the shop. She offered to turn on the AC as I was sweating so much from the weather of Port-Louis.

After chatting for a little while about Girl Love and our lives, I couldn’t wait anymore to start exploring every corner of the shop.

The tiny details, the decor, as soon as you enter the cozy shop is all you will notice as well as the pastel-colored walls contrasted with the splash of colors from the clothes. Are you ready for your summer shopping…let’s get right into it! I will leave you with the rest of the pictures that I captured… enjoy!

Embroidery, stripes, polka dots, floral, tropical patterns, kimonos, dresses, skirts, pants, jackets, jump-suits… options that youwon’t be able to choose from and hold on to your credit card because you might end up broke after your shopping.

L’Appret-midi just started to sell pieces of jewelry not so long ago to help you find your complete outfit, from top to bottom, work or casual look, boho or minimal style, all in one store. Awesome, right?

Personal observation: She is not only the most friendly person EVAA but, Sandiana also makes sure to help her clients by giving them bits of advice so that they make a good purchase and leave the store as happy clients.

How to style a DENIM JACKET in winter w/ Sadyia ❤

photoshop2.jpgHi everyone,

The weather has been quite chilly these past weeks and apparently, winter – well, our tropical winter knocked at the door. In Mauritius, the probability of having days below 20°C is quite rare. Therefore, there is no use for us to go and throw out money on coats and jackets with a thick lining and faux- fur. A denim jacket is just perfect for us, islanders to be cozy and warm during winter. It literally goes with anything and I think it’s the perfect 365 days piece that everyone should have in their closet.

I think denim jackets are such a common term now that everyone is familiar with it! Denim jacket has been in style for so many years now and it appears that it has no intention to go anywhere anytime soon.  I am sure that every one of you owns a denim jacket. Maybe you stole it from your siblings or bought it from the money that you saved for so long. TBH, to get a good quality one is quite expensive and hard to find in Mauritius. While it was in trend everywhere else, I struggled quite a lot to find a denim jacket on the island. C’mon sweet Mauritius, time to step up the game!

I collaborated with the beautiful Sadyia who identifies herself as an Instagram blogger  (Be sure to check her Instagram: l.dina_ ) to bring to you these 4 looks at how you can style your (or how we style) denim jacket in winter, from heels to sneakers.

Enjoy!

The business lunch

She created that look by styling her denim jacket with a pair of jeggings, a white shirt, and bomb white heels. To add a little extra, she added her leopard printed bag.

 Brunch with the girls

I paired my denim jacket with a loose black dress and added the metallic shoes (I’m obsessed with) to add the edgy look. I love the color combination of black and denim so much!

Denim can never go wrong with basics, right? Sadyia created this edgy look by pairing her denim jacket with a black body suit and black jeans. She wore a beautiful layered necklace to complete the look with heels.
