Les rayés de l'été

Are you wearing stripes while reading PB today?
More rayés/stripes from the Queen of stripes, Sonia Rykiel...
It's no wonder the French flag is striped! There's an inherent love of all things striped in France and you can get striped from head to toe at Monoprix. Flip flops and sac included...
Then take yourself off to Hediard for more stripery why not?
Red and black stripes are a classic Frenchie look...
Stripes in the street too!?
You will always look fine wearing stripes no matter what in Paris...
Or eat a multi-striped Montecello verrine at Pierre Herme for many pennies...
"Striped" macarons at Jean-Paul Hevin!
BONJOUR Les rayés de l'été!

mmmm striped macarons?
Call me un gros gormand, but I had 4 ! macarons the other day. Shameful.
What's your tally?

I had 4 yesterday too!
I stole into the freezer and robbed my cache...
I am guilty as sin :(

The opening shot and the lipsticks are my favorites!
I'd love to find some sneakers like those.
I love the angles that you use :-)

Stripes do seem to be inherently Frenchy.
Is it in the genes?

:(

Love all the stripes, especially those sneakers. The penny candy bags are cute, too.

Oh, I just realized, I'm wearing stripes today! But it's a bit more oversized and far less clingy than those first two photos.

To answer someone's question above...non, wearing les rayures is not in the genes, but it helps to have gone to school there (as did I) OR to watch a lot of French film & eat French food. It just comes to you.:)

The only clothing I bought all summer was a dress, appropriately called,Marseilles, from a site called Shabby Apple. It's very classy & cool...& on sale if anyone wants to take a look. I don't have the URL at moment but easy to find. Anyway, when I wore it the first time a French friend said, "Hey Frenchie." lol

Well...I had NO macarons yesterday, today or tomorrow! And it's doing nothing for my mood. However, I did a little detour to check out Shabby Apple and it was fun!
