What I Wore in the South of France

Four Different Outfits For The French Countryside

As we get deeper and deeper into the summer, the streets of Paris become emptier and emptier especially when there is a heatwave stifling the whole city. After two years living in Paris, I’m no stranger to the city’s transformation into a ghost town during the summer months and so last week I decided to join in on bandwagon of the Parisian exodus and retreat down to the countryside for a breath of french air.

Because I was mainly enjoying my time away from the hustle and bustle and daily struggle of defending myself in Paris (fellow foreign strugglers where you at?) I didn’t take that many photos of the landscapes that surrounded me nor of many of my experiences. (It was the holiday mentality all week but sure you know yourself.)

I did however snap quite a lot of outfit photos and put together a lookbook which is exactly what this post is about.

When I was shooting the outfits for this blogpost I unintentionally managed to wear the exact same pair of jeans in all three of my outfits…but can you really blame me? Light wash jeans are just so versatile for summer so for today’s post I’m going to show you three different looks I’ve been loving for this late summer weather.

Something Magical Appeared in the City

The 13th Arrondissement of Paris is an area that largely stands as uncharted territory on the tourist map. Although this neighbourhood even despite of all of its charming streets and quirky urban art works and murals has avoided the tourist invasion, this quartier is experiencing an invasion of its own but on a much more cute and cuddly level.

With red hot temperatures on the rise this summer we all need the perfect sweat-proof outfit that’s going to be perfect for chilling out and cooling down.

Being an autumn baby who lived almost my whole life in Ireland, coming up with summer outfits that are both comfortable and cool can be an impossible task at times, especially because I’m not used to having to go about my everyday life while sweltering under the extreme heat. It’s only really now after two years living in France that I’m getting used to dressing comfortably under the blazing hot sun so for today’s post I came up with three summer outfits that are perfect for staying stylish no matter how high the thermometer may be.

Why I’m Tired of Living in Paris

I’ll Probably Delete This Later

Its 3am and I just had to come on here and write this. Honestly I don’t know where to begin. Things have been hard lately.

I feel like everybody knows me as the walking cliché foreign girl in Paris who comes to the city after uprooting her whole life abroad to fall in love with cheese and baguettes and everything else associated with the most grotesque french stereotypes you can imagine. On instagram and often over here on our blog I’m posting constantly about how much I love Paris and on a very superficial level, my love for the city is real. I love the city as a city. No matter where you go here you’re always surrounded by beautiful things, chic restaurants, boutiques and cafés and every street is brimming with so much history that it would be impossible to know every single detail about it. But the truth about Paris is that trying to make it here as a foreigner is often misery.
