MORE PHOTOS ON MY BLOG: redreidinghood.com
A couple of days before we were going to leave for our holiday in France, I decided a needed a red/white striped long sleeve T-shirt in my life. I figured I would totally look like a Parisiènne on holiday in her own country. I quickly ordered one online (since I couldn’t find any in stores) and crossed my fingers for it to arrive in time. So when the mailman came to deliver a package of that very webshop one day before we would leave, I couldn’t be more excited! I tried it on and it was perfect!
“I would look très Parisiènne in a red/white striped long sleeve.”
But when my boyfriend came home from work that evening and spotted my new T-shirt laying on the table his first words were: “Hey, where’s Waldo?”. So while I thought I would look très Parisiènne, my boyfriend was comparing me to a character from a children’s book. I figured he would probably be the only one to think of Waldo though. So I put it in my suitcase anyway and brought it with me to France (from where I’m writing this). Fortunately the first day I wore it no one compared me to Waldo, but one of my family members did call me ‘pirate’. Oh well, I’m totally fine with the funny comparisons now and I can laugh about it. I just think Waldo and pirates have great taste!

Anyway, I took these photos yesterday when we visited Rennes, the capital city of Brittany (a province in France). The renaissance architecture actually reminded me of Paris, making me feel less Waldo and more Parisiènne ;)
