I always talk about how much I love wearing color, but once again I find myself wearing a semi monochromatic look. This time, however, it’s an hommage to France as I’m wearing the French Tricolor on my sleeve as well as on the backpack, both from Le Coq Sportif. I must admit that my experiences of France are limited to Paris and Cote d’Azür and I would love to visit all of France, especially after having looked up serene places to spend my vacay at lately and found many hidden gems in France. It still leans towards Greece though.
I’m going to Paris in June, so despite the fact that I’ve really missed Paris it’s not a biggie as I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been there, but returning to Paris is always like coming to my second home. There’s something so warm and welcoming about that city and it seems like I can’t ever get enough. On a side note I do hold a grudge against the French ever since the 1789 revolution where my favorite queen ever, Marie Antoinette, along with her entire family were executed in a barbaric way, but I think 200+ years should make me forgive the vigilante ancestors by now and seriously embrace the rest of France as well as it’s a beautiful country.
As for France it’s really not just Paris and I urge people to think of Europe as more than just Paris and Rome. It is such a diverse country (and continent for that matter) and I feel somewhat ashamed that I’ve only been to Paris, Nice and Cannes, but that’s going to change soon enough I hope. Until that I’ll enjoy all the good things coming from France both when it comes to fashion and culinary treats and will keep returning to my beloved Paris every now and then. As for now, I’m preparing for PFWM and that’s seriously going to be a blast.
The shoes are not French though. They’re from Stockholm based Jim Rickey and from their Cloud collection. With the code THOMAS15 you get 15% off the entire collection until May 21st, so if you’re thinking about investing in a pair of clean, classy and chic kicks I’d suggest you’d check their homepage out. Oh, that goes for both guys and girls in case you were wondering.
