Wine, cheese, and bread part of your daily diet? Do your friends always compliment your sartorial sense of style? Insist on black coffee, always? Sounds like you might be French at heart!
Ooh la la! Catch yourself dropping a French word mid-sentence every now and again? Insist on multiple cheek kissing when greeting friends? Are your pals jealous of your berets and Lipault handbags? If you do possess an innate sense of style, sophistication, and sass, you might just be a secret Francophile. Though it’s no bad thing of course; who wouldn’t want to channel a spot of French joie de vivre? Read on to find out what else you might be guilty of, that makes you unequivocally French at heart.
1. You drink wine like water
H2NO! If you can’t have wine with your meal then, frankly, there’s no point in dining.
2. You laugh in the face of carbs
Baguette for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Sure, why not.
3. Quality over quantity
Your life mantra in general, but especially when it comes to accessories. Why have 20 ordinary bags when you can have one Lipault?
4. You drink your coffee black
Milk in coffee? Sacre bleu! The only thing you’ll be adding milk to is a roux.
5. Cheese is life
Pass the brie! Your party trick is the ability to identify any variety of fromage through smell alone.
6. You only travel in style
Comfort is at the bottom of your priority list when selecting an outfit for travelling. And you’re always that elusive person who bags a free upgrade to business thanks to the chic vibes you radiate and your natty Lipault luggage.
7. Scarves are your ‘thing’
Got a silk scarf for every day of the year? Yup, you’re French.
8. You’re always fashionably late
Turn up on time? No chance! That’s for people who have nowhere else to be, and no one else to see.
9. Your wardrobe is black, white, and breton
Simple, stylish, and so-hip-it-hurts; you cannot get enough of those Breton stripes – to the extent that your wardrobe resembles a French zebra.
10. You know how to pronounce Lipault
Of course you do, and you’ve got a few colour pop arm candies in your repertoire to boot.
