What 3 things French Women Do To Create Their Style

Do you find yourself staring at your closet and trying on outfit after outfit until you finally find something that works? You leave the house with piles of clothes covering a chair and feeling stressed. Your conclusion...you have nothing to wear better go shopping.

That was me for years until I remembered how French women dress and it isn’t about having more clothes, it is about having less. The 3 steps that brought back my smile and style . . . 

6 basic piece wardrobe

1. Basics

I started depending on my 6 piece basic wardrobe. (if you want to read the 6 pieces blog http://bit.ly/6BASICS) French women make certain that their basics are good quality and fit them perfectly. It is not their only wardrobe, but the basics are the pieces they depend on.
Having those basics gives me the security and confidence to know I have something to wear.
2. Accessories

French women have learned that to make a basic wardrobe work they need accessories not more clothes. They depend on scarves, jewelry, shoes, and handbags to create their unique style.  3. Research

Inspiration is essential. French women look for inspiration everywhere. If you want to create your look you need to have ideas. Magazines and online sites are good resources. I spend time looking and clipping ideas to create an idea board. When I need ideas I glance at my board for inspiration. The more ideas I have the easier it is to create a look I like.Mood Board

Between My 6 basic pieces, my accessories and my idea-board, getting dressed is a lot more fun and much, much, easier. In this case, less is really more!

The last time I walked into Notre Dame I just stood there looking around while my eyes adjusted and this massive building came to life. I took it in, all of it at a glance: the space, the art, and the incredible majesty of this cathedral. As I entered the sanctity of Notre Dame...

A chill went through me...

Over the hundred and thirty-nine years the Alsatian-inspired brasserie Lipp has been open, it has become a Parisian institution. The New York Times wrote: “It has been the place to be seen for generations...it was one of my father’s favorites...since it didn’t take reservations…everyone had to wait in line, but...

SO MUCH BETTER THAN IMAGINED—BUT NOT EASY

I have a hard time admitting that a plant once intimidated me. But in my defense, it wasn’t just a plant, it was orchids! They’re exotic—they have their own rules.

Everyone has a different way of taking care of them: “Water them every two weeks.” “Only use half-a-cup of water.” “Put the pot in a water bath for a few hours every week.” One orchid came with a label that said ... But nothing prepared me for what is happening. . .
