Not Really French

I don't think it's a secret that I'm not French. I'm about as French as four lack-luster semesters studying the language in college and three hazy crazy days in Paris last June can make me (which, once again, makes me not). But I can eat a baguette like nobody's business and love a good stripe, or twenty.

So it makes no real sense that here is my Frenchie tribute OOTD - which is really a nicer description of my outfit than my initial reaction to it after reviewing my camera pics (Ooh, I look like a cute Parisian - wait, no, I think kind of look mime-ish. Or maybe gondolier-ish? Or even Hamburglar's girlfriend-ish?)

It's OK if you gals thought of the former too, because I am way too lazy to change now anyways. I was apparently adamant about wearing a striped shirt with this skirt, because I tried on about five different ones before finally settling (I even tried a red striped shirt over this - what am I thinking?!)

I'm just going to grab my beret, my pot of white face paint, a few cheeseburgers and a copy of O Solo Mio, and I'll be on my way!

Top: J. Crew favorite fit striped boatneck
Skirt: Lands' End cotton modal foldover
Belt: The Limited woven leather
Necklace: Laila Rowe
Shoes: Nine West Temani patent wedges

Here's to another terrific Friday! Bon week-end!


  1. "Or even Hamburglar's girlfriend-ish?" HAHA, you are HILARIOUS! That literally made me LOL. But for the record, you don't look like the hamburglar's girlfriend -- you are far too cute for a common thief of fast food! I really love a good stripe too, and hey, having been to Paris, you're a lot more French than a lot of people can claim to be. I love this look!

  2. i love your striped boatneck top. :)

  3. I think it's cute! I like it. I'm always very much in favor of stripes.

  4. Thanks for all your comments, ladies!

    And Amy, my best French phrase is "parlez anglais?" because that's about as much good as those French lessons have done for me. :o)

  5. I am french (by genetics, not birth) and I approve of this outfit. It is a bit gondolear-ish, in a good way! There is a dress just like this on ModCloth right now.

  6. Hahah, Hamburglar :)

    This outfit is very cute. I love the belt too!

  7. Haha, I think your outfit looks great - very classy & sophisticated. Love the color of that skirt!

  8. Lisa, your posts crack me up. I too can eat a baguette like nobody's business lol. I wish we lived closer so we could be shopping buddies too! Anyway, I'm sure you know how much I love stripes--your shirt is so cute! Hope you're having a fab weekend!

  9. this is so french and lovely! and i am loving brights with stripes for the spring--this is gorgeous.

  10. Such a fabulous look. Loooooove the skirt!

  11. Thanks for the comments, ladies! And for indulging me in my stripes fetish!
