What a week! Today I am sharing this French beret outfit with you.

Shop The Look

 

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale went live on July 12th. I’m not ashamed to say that I was one of those who stayed up to shop the sale. I was able to get my hands on the all the items I wanted before heading off to bed.

 

Lucky for me, the time difference put me at an advantage. The sale started at 3:01AM EST time which meant it was 11:01PM in Alaska.

Back to the subject of this post, I’ve always had a thing for anything French. The culture, language and tradition are fascinating to me. It probably stems from my childhood of taking French lessons in class and over summer breaks. But it extends far beyond that.

In college, I pursued a degree in pharmacy and a minor in French language. I even did two summer study abroad in France. It was during this trip that I fell in love with the French beret. And I even gave my blog a French name although I had no idea what it fully meant.

I purchased a red beret. A black beret. A tan, blue and even pink berets. Yeah, I know! 🙈One beret I did not buy was a green beret. I wanted to stay away from the “cliche”. But in retrospect, I should have. Life is too short!
