Lookin' German & Speakin' French



I could be wrong, but I think Heidi is German. My little braids make me feel quite a bit Heidi-ish. But I'm a German Heidi with a French twist, today, because guess what my earrings say? Beau Couer. That means Beautiful Heart in french...isn't that pretty? Just wearing them makes me feel good.

I love the french language. I actually started french lessons when I was in the 5th grade, and then I took 3 years in high school. I'm definitely not fluent, but I like to think that if I when I make my way to Paris I could survive with some slightly rusty conversational french.

This is outfit number EIGHT of the 30 for 30 challenge. I took the weekend off, but now I'm refreshed, remixing, and feeling good! Hope you all had a great weekend, and.....
Bonne chance cette semaine avec le defi!
(Good luck this week with the challenge!)

I love the braids in your hair!! I can't wait for my hair to grow out again so I can try this. Was it difficult to do?

Also, I love the fall colors of your outfit. Very pretty!

Liz said...

Wow, the pattern mixing really works when it's all the same color family! I'll have to try this look out some day..

I've said it before and I'll say it again...the camera loves you. You could wear a sack and it would look fantastic in your pictures. Not that you look like you are wearing sack. In fact, you look very chic. But you know what I mean.

I tried doing that the other day to my hair, but sadly didn't turn out the way I hoped. Yours on the other hand look super cute! Love.

So cute! Heidi is Swiss, by the way, but probably Swiss German!

Frances Joy said...

I love the mix of prints you have going on! You're doing great on the challenge so far! I feel so far behind; tomorrow will only be day 4 for me. But at least its given me some time to get inspired by the rest of you 30 for 30'ers :)
