a favorite word


dis·ha·bille noun \ˌdis-ə-ˈbēl, -ˈbil\ : a deliberately casual manner



Have you ever heard someone say, "we don't have a word for that in English?" This is one of those instances. I love the French word "dishabille." It perfectly explains my approach to style. My aim in dressing each day and in dressing my home is to be considered, put together and original, but in a way that isn't fussy. Like well-dressed but always approachable and a teeny bit undone. What are some of your favorite words?
