  • What is one fashion item that is full of history and has become one of the most iconic things in the world?

The Trench Coat! First designed to be worn by military officers during trench warfare, this coat has become a staple in the lives of many and retains an air of elegance in the 21st century.

  • “If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need” - Marcus Cicero
-
I have a bigger library than I do a garden but I want them to be even bigger! 📚💐 Ever since becoming ill, I have learned to appreciate things which other people sometimes take for granted: holding and reading a book or simply walking through a garden and seeing nature at its work.
-
These things may be gone to us one day. We need to cherish the little jewels of life. This belief is the meaning behind “Petite Bijou” which translates from french into “little jewel”

So tell me, what is your Petite Bijou of life? 💕

  • It’s #WorldSmileDay & beautiful things make me smile 😃

Creating a lifestyle to love makes you smile every day. It’s not about surrounding yourself with expensive and beautiful things but surrounding yourself with things that make you happy.
-
I surround myself with art, books, antiques, and delicate things that curate a simply luxurious feel! I always loved putting together mood-boards of how I wanted my life to look like & now I get closer and closer to those goals every day.

What makes you smile? What do you surround yourself with?

The last time I saw my family in France was 12 years ago & I remember thinking how fabulous my aunt and all her friends looked. They were timeless, elegant, and carefree. It was 50% of what they wore and 50% of how they wore it that really left an impression on me.

French style is so distinct yet so simple! You don't need a big or expensive wardrobe to recreate it and I'm sharing how in today's post.
