Countdown to Christmas – Advent Calendar Day 9

It’s versatile and fresh, young yet timeless. No matter what age, every woman should have one. It’s just so… French!

Le Marinière is the ultimate Breton wardrobe staple and will most certainly bring out your inner Sophie Marceau. Worn with shorts in summer or jeans and a foulard (also known as scarf) in winter – et voila!

Who better to imagine as the manufacturer of that desirable garment than Petit Bateau, just as French as Le Marinière itself? Their kids’ range has been known for their unsurpassed soft cotton quality for more than a hundred years. I used to wear Petit Bateau long before they introduced a women’s range, squeezing my 20-year old self into T-shirts and vest tops made for teenagers.

Thankfully, this is not necessary anymore. It also is not possible anymore, but that’s a different story.

And the Petit Bateau Marinière goes to: Margarita. Congratulations! Please email me and I will pass on your details.

As for tomorrow – it needs a lot of little things to fill that stocking…

Leave a comment below to be in the draw for the 10th day of the Advent Calendar.
