We’ve all seen those women. You know the ones I’m talking about. The ones who seem to have it ALL together without trying. They have that – oh, what do the French call it? Je ne c’est quoi – that certain something. When it comes right down to it, it’s an inner peace and I’m not going all New Age on you. To take it a step further it’s called “biens dans sa peau,” or in English, they’re comfortable in their own skin. In one word, they’re chic – they have an air of mystery about them. And remember, not all chic people are rich, and not all rich people are chic.
Imagine if you too could have that certain something or be comfortable in your own skin. Maybe you’re lucky and you already are, congratulations. I’m sure I’m accurate when I say most of us aren’t. Jennifer Scott, best known for her hugely popular blog the daily connoisseur has packaged all the tips you need to create your own signature style and elevate your life into a chic existence in her latest book AT HOME WITH MADAME CHIC (SimonandSchuster).
It’s a fun read and a lot of what Jennifer writes you’ve read before, but you need to stop and injest. In order to enjoy our lives, we have to slow down, look around and fall in love with our homes and lives again. Jennifer helps us on the journey to finding fulfillment in the routine and ordinary. You need to be a willing participant. Personally, I’ve checked my attitude at the at the door and replaced it with gratitude, just like Miss Scott suggests in the big book.
All of this follows on the heels of her previously successful tome LESSONS FROM MADAME CHIC: 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living In Paris. Oh, to be in Paris.
