Wearing stripes, blue and red seems so right when in Paris, well to be honest anywhere – but more cute in Paris, and how amazing that I found all that and more in this cute Joanie jumper – seriously how adorable is the Henrietta Chicken or my Henrietta Poulet as I affectionately called her in a very poor French accent during my stay in the City of Lights. Paris feels so much longer than a month ago, I really should make more of an effort to go more often, especially as it is so easy now I’m based in Kent. Enough
I read somewhere the other day – “be perfect at being imperfect” and it really rang home.
