You guys, I have been absent from Weekly Wishes link up for a couple of weeks now as I was trying to get back to routine post holiday, including not clocking 10 hours at work everyday. Also, there wasn’t any new goal to share. These past weeks had been filled with going to work, eating dinner, planning to write a blog post but watching The Following season 2 instead. On the weekends, I went candle shopping and flew home.
Now I’m back! With a themed monthly goal: French. Wait, What? Why? Well, it all started with..
I read The Gospel According to Coco Chanel and became a little obsessed with style icon, and French lifestyle in general, ever since. So I decided to adapt a little French into my life this month. I know.. I know it’s an unusual goal. I wasn’t sure I want to share this goal with everyone because, well.. It sounds a little pretentious! Also, is it even a goal to begin with?? But I kept thinking about it over the weekend and decided to do it because I want to. Pretentious or not, it will make me happy.
I love Coco but I don’t want to adapt her style completely. My lipstick will be brown and my accessories will have a bohemian touch. What I want is to learn some from Coco while keeping my quirkiness and own it as my style.
Well, isn’t this post girly — You guys, now is your turn, tell me, what is your style? Do you have a dead fashion icon whose style you follow? How about the current celebs? Please don’t tell me it’s Kim K!
I am linking up with the fab Mel from The Nectar Collective.
