francophile friday: stripes by the bay

{in arcachon}

While studying abroad in France, I visited the Bassin d'Arcachon or Arcachon Bay. It was a typical early fall day by the water - nice enough to sit on the beach but too cold to get in the water.

We spent the day climbing the tallest dune in Europe and then getting ice cream before heading to another beach town for some time on the sand and dinner. If I went back to Arcachon on a day like that, I would spend the day walking around town and eating cuisse de canard for dinner.

I would also make sure to sport some serious French stripes. 

What would you wear on by the bay in France?


  1. Cute outfit! Hope you are having an amazing while studying abroad in France :) I know had a fantastic time while studying in France.

  3. Oooo, what a lovely bay! And yes: I totally approve that outfit! (then again I LOVE anything with stripes, haha!).

  4. oh gorgeous! sometimes I actually like the beach best when you need a sweater - when the sun is warm but the breeze gets you as you look over the water. this is perfect!
