How to get up and get dressed: Summer Hot #2

monday dressing inspiration summer

Even in the hottest and humid summer there are days when it feels chilly just to hit you with some heat wave as soon as you are too far to go change into real summer clothes again. For this reason we have to learn how to be masters of disguise so summer won’t make a fool of us. I combine a denim jacket with a surfer dress and flat sneakers…it’s wind-protection, rain-protection for the feet and if the humidity level rises suddenly I can take the top sheet of and walk around in a cool summer dress.

Summer Dressing

Have you ever heard of the French wardrobe, it is said to be superior to all it’s foreign counterparts. One of the things I most hate when it comes to dressing, is to not see what’s actually in my closet. I just cannot live with a mess or lack of organization. In a French wardrobe they start from a basic amount of clothing for every day life. No fancy pieces just shirts, pants, skirts, blouses, dresses, denims, shoes, bags and accessories. If you are a purist or Scandinavian your wardrobe is all black and white. I normally try to live by the idea of less is more and more quality is always better (not necessarily attached to a designer label). Therefore I try to minimize the amount of things I wear and keep searching for the basic perfection.

monday dressing motivation

Dressing like a French editor has it’s advantages: you don’t have to buy fancy accessories, everything is based on simple colors and you are allowed to repeat aka save money. Is there any reason not to dress like a French editor? Maybe not when you think all casual is enough for you but sometimes it is nice to go a bit crazy with a pink skirt or even a handbag, seriously I have never seen handbags on those skinny French arms. French chic is just this mysterious I cannot resist and want more of it.
