French Casual Luxury

here are certain brands that have a special place in your heart and life for Benjamin and me, Lacoste, the French casual luxury brand is one of them. I remember sharing similar memories of our father’s wearing a Lacoste polo, and you probably I have been known to nickname myself a ParAsian (haha). I have been fortunate to spend time in France on three separate occasions in my adult life and it has made me wish I had studied French. Benjamin jokes that is another reason I love Lacoste so much. *wink* Oui!

When we went on a cruise though the Caribbean as newlyweds, there was a Lacoste store and Benjamin was so excited, we obviously had to go in, and he was a kid in a candy store. He bought a pastel blue polo (Benjamin only wears shirts with a collar) with a pink gingham detail in the pocket – it was very exclusive of a style to that area. I will never forget a very tan, and slightly pink, Benjamin with a big smile on his face happy wearing his souvenir.

My friends at Lacoste were generous to send us some clothing and accessories, and update Benjamin’s wardrobe.

Lacoste is having a semi-annual sale 30-60% off select items so now is the time to update that wardrobe – his sale and hers. I have my eye on so many more products, including this watch, this v-neck sweater, and a baseball cap for Benjamin, maybe one for me. I now know exactly where I’m going for Christmas gifts, yes my mind is already there.

On Benjamin

I really liked Benjamin’s new sunglasses and silicone watch and Benjamin is a slim guy and wears a size L in most polos (all Lacoste sizing he ordered a large) and some of the item fits are slim fit. So when choosing men’s sizing you may want to size up. The polo he’s wearing has little crocodiles all over it, I think it’s my favorite shirt of his!

On Diana

I’m wearing a pleated skirt (I’m wearing size small, could have worn a size XS for higher waist) and wore it over a long ribbed cotton dress (wearing size 36), and the leather belt bag was just icing on the cake or should I say outfit! The leather belt bag also comes in a cream color but I really wanted to go bold with a pretty red. The white sneaks make me sooooo happy as I needed a new pair and this pair has such cute character. I wore this outfit out to run errands and received many compliments.

Diana Elizabeth shot this using a C-stand and remote – it was over 110 that day but it we did it and Benjamin was a very good sport about the heat – we took the rest of the shots indoors because we definitely had no choice, thankful for my photo studio to save the day!
