Weather report! Lithuania is amazing at the moment. It’s absolutely crazy how hot and sunny every single day is. Blue sky makes me honestly happy and so does this outfit. I realize this look is like from a few decades ago, yet I kind of like that. Usually I get inspired by movies (old ones especially) and I shop in vintage stores fairly often, so no wonder why sometimes even I have doubts if I am still up-to-date. However, I swear by dress how you feel rule and it works every time. I mean, if you feel great in what you’re wearing, it doesn’t matter what trends are on and what others think about your look. Especially, what others think. That should never ever be on your mind.
Village girl, or a french girl, as we all like to call it nowadays. And when it comes to french style, Françoise Hardy or Jane Birkin with their iconic fringe, mini skirts and all the wicker baskets come to my mind. As well as today’s instagram goddesses Louise Follain, Jeanne Damas and many others. All of them are ambassadors of this effortless chic lifestyle that connects everything from clothing and accessories to morning coffee and book on your bedside table.
To be frank, I have no clue if all of that is french at all, I was born and raised in grey and cold post-soviet Lithuania (awesome excuse for lack of knowledge), but it looks like it and I love to think that it is like that. There is no secret that I have a sweet spot for all things parisian and since weather has warmed up so much recently, this affection goes only stronger.
Adding to this, there’s no better time to fill up your closet with wrap skirts and printed dresses. For a real french girl feel and quality designs, check these four online stores below. You will not go wrong with any of them. Alternatively, you could also check out local vintage boutiques, it is very likely you would find some wicked treasures there, however, today let’s see what’s out in the world.
