. WHEN IN FRANCE, DO AS THE FRENCH DO .
I thought it seemingly fit to share a rather french inspired outfit on my first official day in France. This breton stripe French Connection dress is approximately 5 years old, if not older, and whilst I appreciate hoarding clothes is ridiculous (particularly when you buy as many as I do) in times like this it’s worth is proved. I like to try and keep my favourite pieces, or investment pieces just in case they come back around in fashion or I find an occasion when I wish I had that old 60’s swing dress to wear. When it comes to the breton though, it never really does go out of fashion, so this French Connection dress was clearly a good investment from day one.

I might also take this opportunity to apologise for the serious overload of my new French Connection Ziggy jacket this week, but this blog is a reflection of what I wear, so I can’t help that i’ve been wearing this belle sleeveless jacket pretty much everyday since I bought it (PPW coming in pretty good right now). And in fact it would have been negligent not to have paired it with my old school breton stripe dress (mixing the old with the new is always a good thing). My Celine Nano was the natural (french) accompaniment, and the combination went perfectly adding a rather francais air to my outfit.
But I wasn’t ready to thrown my hat into all things French just yet, so I decided an ankle boot was the best fit, to make sure I was staying true to my London roots. Apparently it’s that eclectic styling us Brits are known for after all?
What do you think of my rather french inspired outfit? And are you a hoarder like moi?
