They Say I Look French....

Our very dear friend Caroline is from New Caledonia and we have known her and her family for a long time. Caroline and her husband are actually Sarah's godparents so they're like family in many ways.

As we are a close group of friends we are often invited to family celebrations for birthdays and as a result are very familiar with Caroline's parents, grandparents and relatives all of which are French from New Caledonia.

We were all recently together for birthday celebrations for Caroline's sons birthday, and once again as I am so often told and reminded by Caroline's family apparently I look French and act French. I always laugh because I wouldn't know what it is precisely that I'm actually doing to make them think that, but apparently I also look like a relative in the family from the way I dress, look and act. So perhaps I do act French!!!!!


1980's Red and White Polka Dot Skirt :: Hand me down from Caroline (also seen here in my pregnancy style)
Blue and White Striped Tank Top :: Retail sale buy
Belt :: Op Shopped
1970's Red, White & Blue Head Scarf :: op shopped
Erstwilder Bird Necklace :: gift from Ben
Gold Sandals :: Retail sale buy

I wore the above outfit for birthday celebrations for Caroline's son and was told that I was looking very French once again. The skirt is actually a part of a two piece set that was once Caroline's that she had thrifted on an op shop outing and then passed it on to me after she had her time with it.  The skirt is now a staple in my wardrobe in summer.

If you've ever been to France you know that you would be hard pressed to find any woman dressed as imaginatively as you, Trudie, they're very conservative in their sartorial habits!
Great outfit! xxx

It's the red, white and blue of the Tricolour that adds a Gallic flavour! Love the spots and stripes. xxx

Totally off topic. Okay well kinda, but that singlet makes me realise I have NO singlets in my life that can be worn as outter wear. Definable need some for summer.
