A Vintage French Summer Playlist

Your atmosphere can have a big effect on your physical and emotional state.

For example, if you’re surrounded by clutter, it’s more than likely you are also undergoing a lot of mental stress. If you’re cooped up indoors, sometimes it might get hard to feel more energy, right? Environment and atmosphere are important when deciding what kind of lifestyle you’d like to create for yourself.

I personally want and strive to create a simply luxurious life. My personal aesthetic lies in an “old world” vibe with lots of French and British influences. A lot of you have asked how I shapy my environment to be more simply luxurious. Well, a lot of it has to do with music.

During the winter, I play a lot of Gregorian chants, Tudor Music, and classical music. During the summer, I love to play oldies…and when I mean oldies, I mean vintage French music!

If you’d like to create a more vintage summer with me, today I’m sharing my French Vintage Summer playlist. I have some of these song on my phone to take with me wherever. But I’ve also created a YouTube private playlist so I can listen to them at home when I’m cooking, eating, cleaning, or reading. These songs bring back to charm of times forgotten and will make you believe you are sitting somewhere by the Sienne, sipping on une cafe…
