Parisian Influences: French Country Decorating

As I have written before today, there are touches of Paris all around me.  I really did not understand what my interior decorating taste was until one day, years ago, a friend asked me, “When did you begin to like French Country Décor?”  So, I began to look at some websites and magazines and realized my home decorating was French Country.
Ever since then, I proudly proclaim my decorating preference whenever asked.  I wanted to share with you a few of the websites where I find great ideas for French Country…they are:
French Country Cottage
Of course, since I also predominantly write about fashion and style, I thought I would throw in a look I might wear if I were to go out antique shopping.

Lane Bryant capris
Seychilles wedges from Ross
 Hopefully, you will also make the rounds of the other bloggers writing about all things Paris this week…it has been fun!  Have a fabulous Wednesday, everyone!!
