(Outfit Diary) La Toussaint








Today is a holiday called la Toussaint. For me, this is new. In France, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, which isn't hugely surprising, or Halloween as far as I can tell - about two weeks ago, all the stores started to display their Christmas merchandise. I have to admit that I know nothing about traditional Toussaint celebrations, so I'm going to do exactly what I like with this day of total freedom. I'll sleep 'til noon, eat nothing but chocolate for breakfast, and play dress up in my closet [to figure out what I'm missing, naturally!] A happy belated Halloween to my North American friends and big hugs to you all!

Aujourd’hui, ç’est la Toussaint. Pour moi, c’est un nouveau jour férié. En France, nous ne fêtons pas l’action de grâce, ni vraiment l’Halloween d’appris ce que j’ai vu – depuis deux semaines, les magasins commencent à vendre des trucs de Noel. J’avoue que j’ignore complètement les célébrations traditionnelles de la Toussaint, donc j’ose faire exactement ce que je veux de ce jour de liberté totale. Je dormirais jusqu’à midi, je prendrai rien que du chocolat au petit déjeuner et je jouerai à me déguiser dans mon propre dressing [afin de voir ce qu’il me manque, bien sûr !] Gros bisous, mes chéries !

  11. What a beautiful combination!!! I love the sweater with the lace. Um can we switch lives?! Sleeping in, eating chocolate and playing dress up sounds so wonderful. AND you're in paris doing that makes it even better.
    I have never heard of that holiday either, that must be an adjustment that even some of the holidays are different

  22. We have Ognissanti= Toussaints in Italy too! I don't remember any tradition for this day, I just relaxed with family and had chestnuts and pomegranates since they are in season.
    Love your skirt. I saw a black lace one last Sat at Benetton's, and I am still pondering it...

  23. Love all of the pretty little details in this outfit, Cee - so quintessentially you! Also, as far as I'm concerned, the longer stores display their Christmas merchandise, the better. Love Christmas cheer! ;)
