August, the month of the « Aoûtiens » as the French call it. Meaning, those who take their vacation holiday in August. The « Juilletistes » are the ones who head out of town in July. I am an « Aoûtienne ». I like having my vacation end at the end of the final Summer month. (I consider September a Fall month even though Summer usually extends itself well into it). And so as I go from Parisian to vacationer… it seems only natural to express that metamorphosis in style. I get to shed the city clothes for a more relaxed wardrobe in which I intend to shed off the fatigue accumulated this past year. But, try as you might, you can’t remove the city girl style completely, even when on a Summer escapade with Chéri.
After having my warm weather fun in the city of lights, cocktails on fancy terraces, luncheons in chic hidden restaurants, ice cream and carnivals… I am ready to head out of town for a break from the fast pace… take long easy bike rides, breath non-polluted air, nap on the beach and sleep late in cool crisp sheets…
What are you wearing on vacation this Summer?!?
