Hump Day Favorites: Très Chic

Hey there, fashionistas! I know, I know, long time no talk...But after the winter we had in this neck of the woods, I think everyone deserves as much outside (i.e. not in front of the computer) time as they can muster. I've been filling my weekends with outdoor markets and nights with friends, and squeezing in walks with Monti to the beach after work. 

For me, summertime is about being gloriously underdone. My style usually errs more to the side of boho in warmer months, but now that I'm getting older, I'm craving a more put-together version of laid back. Enter: French style. Neutral colors, flat shoes and minimal accessories form this effortlessly chic aesthetic. In the following links, Who What Wear lists some secrets to French dressing and style mistakes to avoid. And All Women Stalk has a seriously covetable gallery of street style examples. 

I styled some looks involving horizontal stripes, flowy skirts and loafers with a mix of affordable and splurge-worthy items. Nails should be neutral and hair is natural. And the ultimate accessory? A box of macarons. Swoon.

  1. How I love love love French/Parisian chic looks. And yes, the ultimate accessory may not be a scarf, or a spritz of Chanel No. 5, but rather a box of delicious swoon worthy macaroons. (Preferably a pistachio or lemon, tres traditional.) Love these postings here- totally gave me outfit inspo- I have a black tulle skirt and a breton top, WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT SOONER?! Enjoy summer -especially after the snowy winter you had up in the Boston area!
