we talk with French blogger and influencer Amandine Schmitt about her style
My name is Amandine and I have the soul of a traveler. I moved around often in my childhood because I’m lucky to have a military dad. I traveled in a lot of countries and I had the opportunity to live the French adventure show called ‘Kohlanta’ in 2016, it’s a survival game better known as ‘Survivor’. Since then I have kept traveling, every time I have the opportunity I take it.
Beyond my adventurous side, I love fashion. I live in the north east of France and the mentalities tend to differ according to the regions, but in Strasbourg I am able to adapt my style (rock, Parisian or boho) according to my moods.
My style essentials are blue jeans and black leather pants that I love to accessorize with a beautiful belt, a handbag, a pair of mules, or pretty boots.
For me, the French style is elegant and chic but never shocking. When I’m outside of France I allow myself a sexier style, lighter while remaining elegant and natural. I love wearing a crop top or lace top with denim shorts or a flat skirt and accessorise it all with a cute handbag, hat and/or sunglasses.
I started a travel blog (www.soydine.com) that I intend to expand with fashion articles. I take care to incorporate my different outfits in each of my Instagram posts. This is so I can share the way my style changes through every country I visit. I always let myself be influenced by the atmosphere of the countries that I am in.
Some people take direct style inspiration from others, and you can appreciate this better when you yourself become a reference. Fashion really is a connection between people which is why I’m so drawn to it.
We loved hearing about Amandine’s story, and we’re definitely inspired by her Parisian style.
