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?!?
