French twist

J’adore how this “french girl”-inspired look came together!!

My slouchy, distressed boyfriend jeans were my starting point…and rather than going with a more expected slim-fitting top, I paired them with my Forever 21 striped sweatshirt.  (By the way, I never really understood the appeal of pockets until quite recently…how fun are these?!)

Our sunshine meant that my eyes needed a little shielding, so I added a hat (from Le Chateau) instead of sunglasses…I kind of wanted to enjoy the brightness of the day!!

And these shoes!!  They aren’t new, but a re-discovered find from my own collection; I have a feeling that you will be seeing them a lot in upcoming posts!!

Alors…I wish you un bon jour, mes amis!!

      You see?? It's just a bad rumour that it rains ALL the time in Vancouver; we have sunny days, too!! And I agree…this kind of look is a nice, casual way of "dressing up!!" I hope your first week back at work was okay, dear Conny…and I wish you a lovely weekend as well!! XO

      I don't know how I could have possibly forgotten about those shoes, Anett!! They are going to be going into regular rotation now, though…that's for sure!!
