Memorial Day marks the official start of summer which also means, we’re about to sweat. And as much as I look forward to summer and don’t want to sound like the type of person who finds a way to complain about weather year-round, the heat in NYC can get…rough, and breathable outfits become a priority and a necessity.
Every week as Friday approaches I develop an idea in my head of what my weekend will look like. Typically, the vision resembles this photo of Ondine: a cute outfit, a look of peaceful content, a glow at dusk that enhances all of my best features, and a trip upstate to embrace the natural world. But then I blink and the weekend is over and not only did I not bask in the sunset wearing my favorite pair of wedged espadrilles (side note: I don’t own them yet), I also didn’t make it upstate (side note: I’ve been talking about doing this for four months).

Mastering the essentials is probably the key to French style, if I had to choose just one. Anne-Laure does this so well I was particularly excited to meet her and take her picture on our last trip to Paris. She has a way of making very wearable clothes look feminine and chic, of accessorizing just enough to make an outfit special. The three looks she wore for our little rendez-vous are case in point and I may just be inspired to cut my hair and get some fun sunglasses.
