The French wardrobe, French Capsule wardrobe, what do French girls wear
When I go on holiday I go into the " I want to spoil myself' mood. Not a bad attitude to have when vacationing. But in terms of wardrobe this resulted and me bringing my fancy clothes along, lots of dresses, and even more than one pair of heels. Very impractical. I always ended up having not enough clothes for the two weeks, even tough I came back with a suitcase full of unworn clothes.
Uniform dressing can feel boring on vacation. So this time I started with my usual picks, and if you want to read about the French formula, a very easy and concise of filling up your closet and making your daily life easy and chic, it's all here. That provided the base of my holiday wardrobe, then I just added a few special tops and voila, lots of separates to mix and match, and not one day wondering if a dress would be too fussy for the beach, or gelato run.


and week two:

These are the classic French items:


 TOPS:


1. The lightweight white cotton sweater.
2. The striped blouse. Mine is by Band of Outsiders, but I also wear this perfect one by J.Crew a lot.
3. A white ribbed tee, easier to wear under camisoles, than a normal bulkier one.
4. a linen Striped shirt by Isabel Marant, on sale now, Indispensable.
5. The classic white silk shirt, you cannot go wrong with the silk Equipment one. You could wear it ten years ago, and probably when you are a 105.
6. A navy tee. Most of my tees are from Ragdoll, they never pull and already have that I have worn this forever look.
7. Another Ragdoll Tee, ivory with a V-neck.
8. a silk camisole to wear underneath a blouse and over my ribbed tee.
9. and a long black cardi

2. A blouse with a subtle print from Rouje, again a favorite brand,  they never wrinkle, They are very feminine,
