As a lover of French culture, I always like to do something extra stereotypically frenchy to celebrate. From eating macarons and croissants to just wearing a beret and humming 'La Marseillaise'. And today I decided to put together a French themed coordinate with my lovely French Doll onepiece from Angelic Pretty. Paired simply with a red cardigan and accessories, the coordinate is undoubtedly inspired by the tricolour flag - blue, white and red.
I managed to find this gorgeous dress with the socks and the sweet tricolour ribbon on auction for a very low price. It's so simple but the detail is so lovely. I love the silver embroidered 'bonjour' on the collar and the rosette brooch that came with the dress. It's a little Eiffel Tower with a ribbon wrapped around it!
I tried to keep the accessories subtle with the delicate little Eiffel Tower necklace and 'Paris' necklace, the latter which my sister Kairii bought for me knowing it's my favourite city in the world. She has a matching 'London' one too~
Doesn't the red gingham headband remind you of the typical tablecloths you see all over France? I'm already thinking about hot French onion soup and beef bourgignon! I borrowed it quickly for the photo, thanks sis Kairii!!
My petit beurre biscuit bag matches the French theme too~ I really wanted the large one but it was too expensive at the time. I was saved by the release of the smaller version.
My shoes are very casual and comfortable. Shiny black patent leather shoes for a slightly alternative look from mary janes or tea party style.
