Radioactive- Kings of Leon
I love how the colour red just wakes everything up. I'm still trying to get over a cold/flu from these past few days but as soon as the coat went on I felt much more alive (less like the zombie that I had been all day!). Plus stripes are my happy print, so classic and French, and the pumpkin spice latte didn't hurt either! Definitely feeling better now!

I still haven't decided what to be for Halloween, it always sneaks up on me! I was thinking of being a double rainbow (LOVED the video!!) but also thinking Audrey Hepburn as I have everything easily accessible in my wardrobe. Hmmm.
What about you? What are you guys being for Halloween?


  1. Love this outfit. The red swing coat is so pretty and romantic :).

  2. I love love love your outfit! I have to check out Le Chateau.


  3. Ahh, I LOVE this! The red swing coat with the stripes is just perfect - prepping for France, are we? You look just darling. Glad you are feeling better!

    As for halloween, I can't decide how much effort to put into it. No one seems particularly geared up this year (it varies every year) so I'm not sure what we're doing yet. Either way, I'm leaning towards being some sort of bird. Maybe something silly like a chicken. Or pretty & halloween-y like a black bird of some sort.

    DOUBLE RAINBOW! amazing.

  4. That stripped top and red jacket is incredible! You have such great taste. I may need to pick up that red jacket.

  5. Love the red with the stripes! So very classic Parisien indeed! :) Pumpkin spice lattes make the world a better place! :)

    I am going to a wedding on the 30th so its literally squashed ANY type of plans I could have made for Halloween this year!! Super boo! :( I vote for Audrey though! :)


  6. I'm going as a masquerade lady! Found an awesome mask at a second hand store for $5. It's huge so I haven't figured out how I'm going to strap it to my head!


  7. Pretty swing coat. I'm loving the stripes...I wore them today too!

    Your red coat is such a classic. Everyone should have an amazing red coat! I hope you are feeling better. In my experience, pumpkin spiced lattes are a great help!
    I have NO idea what to go as for Halloween. Maybe this will be the year that I get so frustrated with my lack of costume ideas that I just won't go out. OK, let's not get carried away but I mean it's less than ten days away now EEeek.
    Let me know what you decide to go as!! Aaron wants to go as the Doppler effect. I thought you would appreciate that. xx

  17. IS there really a beverage in that cup, Louise???? I'm skeptical... ;)

    Cute stripes, love the red.

  18. Love that song by Kings of Leon!
    You're right. Red definitely brightens up an outfit! I love your coat and boots. Hope you're feeling much better soon. This yoyo weather is bringing the cold/flu season with it. Pooey!

    As for halloween, I haven't even thought about it. I think the double rainbow idea would be absolutely hilarious!

  19. What about... a gothic audrey? Or a zombie audrey? That could be an interesting twist? jazzy ♥

  20. I adore your Red jacket - it fits nicely with the striped blouse and brown shorts. Very pretty shoes, too. Have a happy day;-)


Thanks for all your lovely comments, they never fail to make my day! xx
