Bastille Day francospiration


Joyeux Quatorze Juillet!

Being the avid Francophile that I am, I definitely couldn’t miss celebrating Bastille Day!

For those of you who don’t know, Bastille Day commemorates the 1790 Fête de la Fédération-which was held a year after the storming of the Bastille (the storming of the Bastille marked the beginning of the French revolution). In laymen’s terms, Bastille day is the French national day- much like our fourth of July. 

Ok, ok. Mini history lesson over. In honor of my great-great grandparents (on my father’s side), here’s some francospiration

I don't know about you guys, but I'm already dreaming up a few francoinspired DIY's. & remember that striped sequin shirt I'm wearing in the first picture? There's a mini DIY that goes along with that one. Stay tuned...
