5 Effortless Ways to Celebrate Bastille Day & Add a Little French to Your Thursday

Inspired by Dawn's ideas for adding some French style to your Thursday Bastille Day

Not sure about you but we're always looking for effortless ways to channel our inner-Francophile. And with Bastille Day on Thursday there's no better excuse. So here are some easy ways to add a little French flair to your Thursday. Tres chic!

  • Croissants, macarons, eclairs, oh my! - Stop by (probably early for best selection) your local French bakery and pick up some treats for your family or co-workers
  • Staycation - Escape your typical Thursday with a trip to your city's art museum during lunch or after work. Bonus points if it has Impressionist art!
  • Add a dash of chic - Grab a gauzy, summer weight scarf and effortlessly tie it around your neck, wear it as a headband or just tie one to your bag for the day. It's the ultimate style accessory
  • Raise a glass - Treat yourself to a Thursday champagne cocktail in celebration of Bastille Day. Sante!
  • Reserve a Table - Find your favorite sidewalk cafe - French or not - and reserve a table for you and your nearest and dearest and enjoy a warm summer evening dining al fresco. Oui, oui!
