Fancy a bit of je ne sais quoi for the summer? I made a little Marie & Lola summer selection for you to add some Frenchie vibes to your wardrobe...
This is my new fave go-to summer dress for the summer. Wear it with some sandals for a walk in the country or add some gold wedges and a clutch for an evening out, et voilà! The flower print is festive and the cut is so flattering showing a bit of curve but all with style.
Lizon mini dress in black £49
Every lady needs something in a gingham print in her wardrobe. It just reminds me of Brigitte Bardot for some Frenchie vibes. Plus this short version is so versatile to wear: from a quick stop at the market to a picnic in the country. You will always look élégantes, tout simplement. And this short version is super modern but also super girlie with the puffed sleeves.
Another dress, because they are so easy to wear in the summer. This blue number caught my eye straight away. Add some vintage shades and a straw basket bag and maxi hoops earrings et voilà!
We all need a camisole like this. Marie & Lola offers it in many beautiful colours but bleu is definitely my colour. Pair it with a long skirt, a pair of shorts or even some jeans when it is chilly. The name is quite charming too and you will feel so feminine with its beautiful details.
This LBD has just that little je ne sais quoi to make you stand out this summer. The beautiful ruffles and smocking at the front are just perfect to turn a classic outfit into a feminine number.
I could not make a Frenchie selection without some stripes! I will wear this beautiful jumper with my favourite skirt or some black culottes. Add some colourful hair accessories or a statement pair of earrings to add some colours, and you are done. Chic, but not too much.
So here is my Summer Frenchie Marie and Lola selection. Which one is your fave piece? For more beautiful clothes and Frenchie vibes shop the full collection online.
