Le chic Français sans effort

Last night my boyfriend and I played the game ‘If I could be any other nationality in the world what would it be?’. My immediate response was “French of course, the berets, the stripes, the patisseries, the baguettes, the champagne – what’s not to love?" Call me clichéd but I’ve always loved a solid stereotype. The boyfriend’s reaction was a lot simpler, “Argentinean”. I was somewhat perplexed considering he already reigns from the southern parts of the Americas and is already 100% Latin blooded. “Why?” I asked “Football” was his response. Men, so nice and simple.

Enjoy a few terribly contrived snaps of Francis looking somewhat like a French cliché and not so much effortless.

I'm not really into the French thing, I would answer Italian hehe. But you look really good with the hat and the shirt. It has a French look.

I was having this exact conversation with my housemate this eveing, and I also answered with French (although I'd also love to be English - I just can't decide between the two). My housemate ruined the game by saying he'd be a vampire though- which is just beside the point really isn't it?

You look adorable darling! Xx

I agree with Sam - Italian wins hands down. Who wouldn't want to roam the streets of (insert favourite Italian destination here) on your vintage vespa, sipping espresso in your slickest Armani, greeting the beautiful passers by with an indifferent 'Ciao, bella'..

Though yes, I do realise that even if I was Italian I would find it difficult to sip and drive.. Don't ruin the moment..

Jaja this is a hilarious story that I can enlarge with another anecdote ...When Migue was obligated (because we had to push him out) to leave for study far away from home, his first pick was ...Buenos Aires.

We asked him why, is there a good university, or a great especialization there...

Maybe, but I like it beacuse I can go to all the futbol games.

Only in your dreams - said Mom

and it would had been a different story....
