Laetitia on Inside Closet

inside, lifestyleAnna KellerComment

I recently discovered Inside Closet and just had to add it to my Feedly. it's a blog focusing on French women and their closets and apartments. I could look at apartment inspiration blogs all day long, but this one stands out to me because it doesn't focus on immaculately curated shelfies* or perfectly color coordinated walls of Céline and Acne. it aims to shine a spotlight on unique women and their spaces, who manage to get up every morning and make themselves look beautiful and different from the hoards of style bloggers out there. it all happens to be en Français, but if you're like me and can basically only order some wine in a cafe with your high school level French language skills, it's OK to just sift through the images and occasionally turn to Google Translate for assistance.

I really love the three part series she recently did on a woman named Laetitia. her apartment is simple and clean, with thoughtful collections and elements throughout that make you think, hey, she really lives there! but also, she clearly doesn't like to hoard crap
