Stripe Tease
Happy month of June everyone!

Black and white stripe has been the latest fashion trend this year. Knowing the right pattern (e.g stripe) to wear is a key element to ”owning” an outfit. Horizontal stripes make you look larger than you really are and vertical stripes make you look slimmer. Also, the portion of my outfit that has horizontal stripe was cut thinner to create an illusion of a slimmer appearance.

I paired this bold stripe pinafore and matching wide brim hat with a little bit of pink to tone down the monochrome look and to add a little bit of flavor. Don’t be afraid to play with colors or patterns!

I was in awe when I took off my hat only to realize that there was a group of teenagers watching me and taking photos of me on their phones. I’ve never had this kind of ovation before and I honestly felt like a famous person — paparazzi!!

I’ve had an amazing time in Normandy learning and appreciating the culture and tradition of the people as well as enjoying the traditional dishes, wines, cheeses, and learning a ton of french! My last visit will be to the famous Honfleur and Etretat this weekend, then off to Paris next week.
