Peasant Life

We journeyed from Paris to Pau by bus stopping at beautiful and unique destinations. We explored many castles and elaborate gardens. It all made me feel very small, which felt nice. I found that the further away from the hustle and bustle of Paris we traveled, the more relaxed and like myself I became. I don't think it's because I hated the city, I just prefer open spaces. 
So this is what traveling in style looks like. I tried really hard to find large advertisement in Helvetica to take a photo next to but was unsuccessful.

Do As The Parisians Do

Salut everyone! ChewZeFAT is now dressed and written in France. My next few posts will be from my week in Paris and then they will be taking place in my new home of Pau, which is in the south of France. After studying the Parisians for about a day and a half I had them figured out and put this ensemble together. It was a huge success and turned the heads of many Frenchmen. The key is to never smile.

Mad Dog

Living in a small town with zero style is tough. Dear followers, if you haven't visited Carson City, Nevada before, don't. Unless of course you wear white capri pants year round and date your cousin. 
I ran errands with my mother today and people were staring at me like I was goddamn Hitler or something. Hey, they're leggings and platforms, get a grip! Good thing I leave for France in 8 days.

With a little more than two weeks left in the country, I've been spending a good amount of time with my mother while I can. We slept in, drank milkshakes with our brunch, spent some dough and had an unhealthy dinner. I received A LOT of compliments on this outfit today.

Dog Days

My yearly summer fever has arrived. I've officially shut myself in and forced my fever-induced, dizzied brain to read and reread all of the books I've borrowed from treasured friends over the past year. I'm terrible about reading multiple covers at the same time which results in half-read, stolen books hidden in drawers and at the bottom of closets. So the good news is, anyone who I've borrowed a book from will be reunited with their forgotten treasure soon. 
I managed to throw together this half-hearted ensemble to run errands with my mom yesterday. Nothing says, "I'm well" like a sheer blouse and a blank stare.
Oh, and these are the things I like:

Remembering Shelly

I try to keep things lighthearted and cute here at ChewZeFAT. With that being said, the name of the blog gives me complete freedom to talk about anything. Plus, It's my blog so I can do whatever the hell I want. 
Today would have been my wonderful Aunt Shelly's 52nd birthday. While I know I should be celebrating her life today, I always have a hard time doing so because it was stolen from her. Today's post is in her honor. She was kind, quirky and beautiful. If she were here today we would have put flowers in our hair, danced barefoot in the grass and laughed until we cried. So here's to you, Shelly.

Shoe Farmer

I think my recent Jeffrey Campbell splurges and straw hat really say all that's needed to justify the title of this post but it wasn't until I was packing all my things to move today that I realized how addicted to shoes I really am. Three boxes later, they are safe and sound. Some people have drug addictions, I have shoes. 
Life is so crazy busy at the moment. After a week in Yosemite, I went to San Francisco to get my visa Monday, worked Tuesday and moved all day today. Sometimes life can be a little impatient. It's important to appreciate the little things like vintage hats and yummy mint pants.
