How to look elegant on the beach

French beach wear



As soon as I arrive in France I head for the local newsagent to buy an armful of women’s magazines particularly Femme Majuscule and Marie France. I find that they offer inspirational role models and excellent fashion and beauty advice for grown up women.

I intend to share some examples of this french style in a series of posts. I am starting with “beach wear” for those of you who might be looking forward to your summer holidays and have waited to take advantage of the current sales.

I love the touch of metallic in the bag, jewellery and shoes. It adds a touch of glamour for a pool side lunch and can easily be adapted for the evening.

I will do my best to find similar styles that are available in the UK and USA.

    What makes me feel truly elegant at the beach are my Rondini sandals. My newest pair, the Bikini, was purchased two weeks ago in St. Tropez. I am so in love with those sandals because they look so–chic!! I wanna go back!!!

      I agree Cathe the Rondini sandals are very chic. I have written about them previously. I did have a pair but now find them a bit flat for my feet which need a bit more cushioning.
