I've Got A Feeling

I've been very obsessed with short skirts with high waists lately. I don't know why. Maybe it is because I get the feeling of having long legs. I found some old skirts I wore five years ago, and they still fit! Isn't that amazing? Then I wore them on the hips, but I think they look a lot better higher up. I get a little feeling of being french, when I wear this outfit. With the stripes and the high waist. Then outfit's only missing the beret.
When I was in France a couple of years ago, some Frenchmen thought I was french. That is what I want to be! When my family and I are on vacation a lot of people believe that my mom, my sister and I are french. I love hearing that! I think it's because we all have dark brown eyes and brown hair. What a luck!

Outfit: Skirt - H&M, sweather - hand-me-down, belt - hand-me-down from Mom, tights - H&M

being called french is my main aspiration in life.
i mean, why else am i accruing all these french wardrobe stables?
so that, one day, with my stripes and my blazer and my fine tailoring some gorgeous french man will ask me out to dinner, whisk me into a whirlwind romance and of course he'll turn out to be some famous actor i didn't know, and we'll live together in perfect harmony in a luxurious parisienne thread, by which time i will have become so thin i can wear couture and am best friends with karl lagerfeld.

what think you of this fantasy?
*sigh* i love dreaming.

your skirts are very cute, and i am slightly jealous that you fit into something you had 5 years ago (and that something you had 5 years ago could still look stylish and chic today!)
i love highwaisted skirts, although i prefer longer ons, but you certainly look lovely and french.
:D

aw how cute!!
i'd love to be mistaken for being french. pretty.
my friend got mistaken for being swedish which i think is a true compliment.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm glad you like the hedgehogs. That particular pair is not for sale but if someone was looking for it, I could probably get something similar done. They're not cheap though! Hand-carved petrified wood!

I like your skirt! I think you really look like french girl! I like when somebody says me:"you look like french." because I think they mean: mysterious, stylish, uncommon etc. I love this feeling!:))
(yesterday one guy told me that I look like french because of my short haircut:)))

Very chic! Highwaisted skirts have replaced nearly everything else in my closet.

Love this look! You do look like you should be walking in Paris! When my Mom and I are walking together people always think we're french too! :o)
