October Style Challenge with Weddington Way

It has been quite a while since one of these Polyvore type posts (about a year). The reason why this popped back up is because of Alex, from Weddington Way. He invited us to take part in the October Style Challenge held by the bridesmaid dress company.

 If you were the Maid of Honor and the bride asked you to help her style the look for her big day, what would you suggest?

Ça fait longtemps (à peu près un an) que je n'ai pas fais un de ces articles style Polyvore. J'en ai créé un parce qu'Alex, de chez Weddington Way, nous a contacté. Il nous a invité à faire partie de son concours de mode du mois d'octobre. Le concours est sponsorisé par Weddington Way, une compagnie de robes de demoiselles d'honneur. 

Si vous étiez une demoiselle d'honneur et la mariée vous avait demandé d'aider à choisir une tenue pour le grand jour, à quoi ressemblerait les tenues?

Summer is disappearing, slowly but surly it has fully reached its end. Fall is curling its fingers around our summer clothes and the sweaters seem to become a part of us by now. I miss the days when I didn't have homework and morning runs didn't need gloves and hats. The ocean water is warmer than the air in the evening and leaves have become the new carpet on my front lawn. 
So here is a small tribute post to you, summer. Taken on a misty morning on a beach with higher temperatures than my hopes on a cold night. 

Dress: Free People
Shoes: Anthropologie

I absolutely adore this dress. The way it flows in the wind and the colors when in movement are simply magnificent. The light material is easy for warm weather but paired with sheer tights and a loose sweater the dress is perfect for those chillier days. Free People has some great dresses that are easy to create outfits with and are great for many body shapes. My body is very loooong and square (I don't have a single curve I swear) and their dresses create awesome lines that gives everything a sense of being curvier and just more awesome. 

Fly like a bird my young ones!

Love, Miki

Old Navy vest, Lands End shirt, H&M pants, gifted bag, Michael Shannon boots, Essie nail polish, Brandy Melville ring and gifted ring

I stumbled up on this song recently. I don't know how I've managed without it for so long.
Récemment, je suis tombée sur cette chanson. Je ne sais pas comment j'ai pu écouter d'autres chansons sans savoir que celle-ci existait!

My mother is adorable. Sometime last week, I had an incredibly tiring night. I got home, exhausted from soccer practice and my ballet class, yet still had to do physics and humanities homework. The next day, my mom went grocery shopping with a little detour to the mall to buy me this vest. Of course, I don't expect such a sweet gesture every time I have a lot of homework. Otherwise, I'd have about one hundred vests.

Ma mère est adorable. J'ai passé une nuit épuisante la semaine dernière. Rentrant, fatiguée de mon entrainement de foot et mon cours de danse, j'avais encore de la physique et des humanités à faire. Le lendemain, ma mère est allée faire des courses en faisant un petit détour par le centre commercial pour m'acheter cette veste. Bien évidemment, je ne m'attends pas à un tel geste chaque fois que j'ai trop de devoirs, sinon, j'aurais facilement cent vestes.

Coach, My Love

Lands End vest & shirt, H&M pants, Coach belt, esparilles from French marché, Bijou Brigitte & H&M rings
With the arrival of Fall comes pants season. You have to hold up your skinny jeans, right? It's the return of the thrifted Coach belt, as if new, for $2.00!!! Leather is so pretty and soft. I'd like to find a way to highlight this belt in my looks. Put your ideas in the comments.
I also made it to Lands End's Pinterest page! Click to view.

 La saison des pantalons vient avec l'automne. Il faut bien quelque chose pour soutenir son slim, n'est-ce pas? C'est le retour de la ceinture fripée Coach, quasi neuve, pour $2.00!!! Qu'est-ce que le cuir est beau et lisse. J'aimerais trouver un moyen de mettre en valeur cette ceinture. Merci de me donner des idées.
Je suis aussi sur la page de Pinterest de Lands End! Cliquez pour voir.

Photo Diary: LF Ranch, Montana

I caught my first fish while fly fishing. 18 in. +
J'ai attrapé mon premier poisson en faisant de la pêche à la ligne. 45cm +.

Meet my friend Ellie who invited me for a week in Montana with her family. We were nestled in a little corner of Paradise, far from any city. On one side, the mountains of the West and on the other, vast expanses of prairies speckled with cows. I spent memorable days hiking, fishing and petting horses. It has taken me over a month to sort through all of the pictures I took to create an article for the blog.

Voici mon amie Ellie qui m'a invitée à passer une semaine avec elle et sa famille dans le Montana. On était dans un petit coin de Paradis, loin de toute ville. D'un côté, les montagnes de l'Ouest et de l'autre, les prairies. J'ai passé des jours inoubliables à faire des randonnées, pécher et caresser les chevaux. J'ai pris tellement de photos que j'ai passé plus d'un mois à toutes les trier pour en faire un article de blog!
