This is the holiday home of Domitille Brion, one of the two sisters that created French fashion brand Soeur (which is French for sister). It is located on Île d’Yeu, an island and commune just off the Vendée coast of western France. The house is decorated in a basic manner but it offers everything for Domitille and her family to escape city life.
It is December which means that it is time to start with the holiday gift guides! The first post of this series is a DIY gift guide as these gifts take the most preparation time.

Today I am stepping a little bit out of my comfort zone: we are gonna talk about men fashion! Not that I’m an expert on the subject but living with a little guy and a big guy for some years now I had to gain some knowledge about men style. My partner often complains that it is difficult to find good quality men clothes that are stylish yet not too trendy. I kept this in my mind when selecting images and items for this post. I know that there are a lot of men reading the style files and I hope you will enjoy this post. And for the ladies: perhaps the suggestions can serve as inspiration for the upcoming gift season. For more inspiration you can visit my Men Style Pinterest board. Shops for men that I like are Mr. Porter and East Dane.
Black is a safe color if you are looking to assemble a stylish outfit. But what about navy? I personally think that this color is equally as chic as black but is a little bit less safe. Above some example of navy colored items.
We have had some beautiful sunny autumn days here but today it is raining. So time to search for some nice Fall outfits which are stylish yet warm and comfortable. I love the classic military-inspired double-breasted coat (1). It is classic but with a hip edge. The faux fur coat (4), which is very trendy this season, has a more glamorous look.
