|Was I Really Stylish?
This morning, I woke up late, grabbed my torn jeans, a white T-shirt that was lying there (I am not sure that it was clean but hey, I was in a rush), and one of my husband’s shirts (don’t tell him please). I didn’t overthink it: I just took what was lying in front of me. I quickly put on my cowboy boots before driving my children to school. When we arrived at the school gates, I got off the car to help my little one, when another mum saw me and said:
‘You French women are always so stylish!’
I couldn’t believe it. Was she talking about me? Why was she saying this? I was far from being glamorous. No, really. What had I done to deserve such a comment? I didn’t know.
I came back still puzzled and thinking about the whole thing. Why did she think that I was stylish? The only explanation I could think of was that despite getting dressed in less than two minutes, I had taken things in my stride and made it look like I had carefully chosen my clothes.
In short, whatever you are wearing, wear it with pride.
Because that’s how we French women are doing it. No need to give the price of your T-shirt or mention that it was a bargain on sale.
No, you need to make it look like it was all a conscious choice, and that it is the latest trend in Paris or wherever. Try it, and let me know how it went!
