Mangomini's Illustrated How-Tos How To Live Like A French Girl Cindy Mangomini

French women are known for their great, seemingly effortless style, that certain “je ne sais quoi”. The good news is that stealing a bit of their style is not so difficult. They believe in “less is more”, great quality basics and natural looking hair and make-up. Oh, and they like to enjoy life with great food and wine. Here is my illustrated guide to living a little bit of the French girl’s lifestyle. See you next week!

  1. I quite like reading a post that will make men and women think.
    Also, thank you for permitting me to comment!

  2. So basically, i’m a French girl.

  3. We spent five days on the Riviera, and shopped in a little boutique there. The women who worked there dressed beautifully in very expensive clothes. They wore the same outfits for all five days! Americans would be worried that they needed to wear something different every day – these women were confident enough to know when they looked fabulous, and didn’t care if they repeated themselves.

  4. Sounds like I’m already on my way! Of course, I do have some French heritage. :)

  5. Can I get a print of this??

  6. I am a parisian girl, and you are right ! We do love simple things ! But we certainly are not eating croissant everyday, that’s for sure. But you’re totally right about the skinny jeans and flats, even when it’s raining or snowing, I am wearing them.

  7. I’m surprised there’s not undergarments on here! The French philosophy “Look good on the inside, to look great on the outside” always stuck with me, so I make sure my lingerie is classy and beautiful!

  8. I have French roots, so I love everything French. This is my life, exactly. Yay!

  9. I always love your work!

  10. Never thought I was such a cliché, turns out I am since yeah that’s kinda my dressing… minus the flats

  11. I love this! <3

  12. As a French woman, I agree with the “less is more”, good basics and natural make up. We do not though wear Breton stripes and go around with baguettes all the time.
