Here are some left over captures of the surf road trip the BF and I made trough France.
First one of the best surf spots in the whole of France named Lafitenia. Than my second love cheese, fromage. I love it, the stinkier the better. To bad this pictures only got a Camembert in it. Third our surfboards <3. And last, one of the best patisseries in Biarritz with definitely the best view.
I am a big fan of jean cut off shorts. For me they are a real summer wardrobe essential I could not live without. I think they give your outfits a relaxed beach feel. Cut off shorts can be inexpensive because you can make them from your old jeans. These ones I made myself from a pair of jeans I found at a thrift shop. I also own an other pair made from my all time favourite jeans that I totally worn off until it had holes in it. And what a perfect way to save your old jeans by making them into shorts.
Online there are numerous DIY’s for cut off jean short like here and here. Maybe I will post my own DIY later this week.
Have you already made you own cut off shorts?

Seriously what is going on with this weather? Is the sun playing hide and seek with us? Rain please go away so me and my sunnies can go outside and play! Loving the reflective sunglasses trend and I am very happy with my new brunotti glasses.
Since I am still in France we are still talking about French hotspots over here. In between Seignosse and Vieux-Boucou there is a really nice beach called Les Casernes. In high summer it is a little more quiet than the other surrounding beaches like Hossergor etc. Maybe it has to do with the fact that you have to walk a little before you get there and when it is hot this can be a challenge. So if you are looking for a chilled out beach this is the place to go.
As a professional beach bum I have seen numerous beaches and this is one of my favourites in France. The small restaurant serves crepes that taste like heaven after a few hours playing around in the refreshing surf.
What is your favourite beach?
Sometimes in between all of the French beauty’s I feel a bit under dressed wearing typical beach wear all the time. I mean fancy clothes take up to much space while travelling and who needs them anyway when you are spending your time at the beach the whole day. So I never take them with me. Still sometimes a women wants to look cute and a dress can always settle any woman’s insecurity. It makes me feel ladylike in an instant. Maybe that is where dressing up comes from. You put on a dress and right away you feel like a million bucks.
I never was a fan of maxi dresses because they don’t flatter my body type very well. (It makes me look smaller than I already am) But this one is just so comfortable I don’t care. Perfect for a walk trough the beautiful city of Biarritz after a smurf surf.

Down the coastline of France there are numerous bars and restaurant where you can enjoy a drink or a meal while overlooking a gorgeous sunset. I run into this cute beach bar in Guethary named Ko Stalder. Groups of friends, lovers and families gather here to enjoy the end of a great day and celebrate this with eating jummy tapas.
Enjoying my sirop de peche and looking over the sea. I can not wish for more. This is definitely the good life.
Have you ever been to the South of France? And what is your hotspot I should visit?
Currently I am on a roadtrip in the South of France looking for surf and sun together with the BF. These photos where made yesterday when the surf did not arrive yet but the sun already did. A good day for a walk on a quiet beach.
A crop top paired with high waist jeans a are good solution when you are not ready to show of your belly yet. First some more surf or kite sessions to get bikini ready. Now the only thing visible will be your cute midriff. And of course while being in the South of France the espadrilles can’t be missed.
Are you ready to show your skin already?

Yeaah! Searching for some sun and surf!
There is something about french women that make them look so effortless chic even when going to the beach. It makes me jealous. So here is my french style inspired beach outfit.
I love rolled up boyfriend jeans with flats beneath. In my French espadrilles originated from the south of France I feel so fresh. I guess not wearing socks really does the trick when looking for that summer vibe. Silk always gives a outfit that extra dressed up touch. And the fact that the blouse is a little see through and you can see my bikini makes it feel beachy. The jewelry I am wearing are travel treasures and the necklace is self made from a shell I picked up from the beach.
How would you embody French beach chic?
