“I would say that my style is minimalist with a bit of a 90’s vibe. I love everything that screams grunge and streetwear inspired. I don’t wear bright colors very often; I’m always in black, grey, dark blue or khaki. But as I said I love pushing myself so yes I tend to break my own rules once in awhile.”
Aurelia is a French style maven, luxury retail associate, and travel and fitness enthusiast, who blogs over at Les carnets d’ Aurelia (Aurelia’s Scrapbooks).
She first started her blog as a bit of a city guide, featuring restaurants, art exhibitions, and other events in Paris, France, the city that she was born and raised in. She turned her focus to fashion after attending several shows in 2012, and attending Paris’ invite-only “Fashion’s Night Out.”
“I grew to realize how much I enjoyed talking about fashion and how easy that was for me,” says Aurelia. “It was the moment I really got concerned about writing stuff about new trends, new designers and show my personal style.”
“Mom jeans are my favorite right now! They have the perfect fit at the waist and the thighs. I feel comfortable in those. These days, I’m wearing a lot of white crisp shirts too.”
When it comes to following trends, Aurelia stresses that being comfortable in that you wear is most important.
“I like to know what the major trends of the season are and what’s keeping everyone at awe,” she says. “If something appeals me and suits me I might then dive into the trend. I love taking risks and reinventing myself through my clothes. But at the same time no, I don’t always follow trends. If I find something pretty but is not me or doesn’t suit my body, I’ll pass. Taking risks yes, being somebody else but me, no thanks. I did that and that was a mistake. Now I’m really committed to being comfortable in what I wear no matter what.”
“I’m a big fan of Swedish designer Jonny Johansson. He’s the creative mind behind Acne Studios. Each and every year the collections keep me in awe. I’m loving what Celine, Chloé and The Row are proposing this season. I love sleek lines and well-structured clothes. But also garments that can tell a story like they perfectly do at Chloe. I’m also in love with Congolese brand Uchawi. Their collection is magnificent.”
