But then yesterday, I walked in to my local branch of Petit Bateau.
Before moving Stateside, I often bought Petit Bateau staples like T's and tank tops by the bulk, finding the quality and fit truly exceptional and liking the "frenchness" that I thought lent a touch of je ne sais quoi to even the most basic garments. (Not to mention the adorable logo that is a picture of - you guessed it - a little boat!) It was only recently that I noticed the store in our neighbourhood, and seeing as this is first and foremost a children's boutique, my reason for being there yesterday was really Noah in general, and his need for cute pajamas in particular... Though once inside, I was happy to rediscover this excellent brand for grownups as well as kids, and especially pleased to see that they now also do a lovely line of swim wear, complete with bikinis, one pieces, beachy dresses and towels. - All tres, tres chic. :)
Hmmm, I thought - suddenly feeling inspired enough to enter the dressing room - perhaps I shall hit the sand (or should I say la plage?) this summer after all...

about those cute pajamas! :)
