a girl in paris





If it's not obvious, I spent the last two weeks vacationing in Par-ee! I was lucky enough to tag along as a friend's date to a wedding in the champagne valley & we made a trip out of it, complete with a visit to Paris & Reims & everything in between. For our first few nights in Paris, a group of us stayed at Hotel Brighton with one of the prettiest views of the Tuileries Gardens, with the Eiffel Tower at one end & the Louvre at the other.

Since I was so proud of myself for packing like a true Parisian (a lot of white, black, & neutrals), I had to snap a few pics in front of the gorgeous tree lined paths in the Tuileries. Taking full advantage of my favorite fall trend, I paired this Boden sweater with a few Paris necessities, like this $12 jersey knit pencil skirtthis wide brimmed wool hat, & these black suede booties. That day was one of my favorite days through out the trip - it started with champagneended with a sunset cruise along the Seine, & included a few necessary tourist traps along the way.

Wearing: c/o Calypso St. Barth Marlow Sweater | F21 Faux Leather Pencil Skirt | Calvin Klein Wedges (similar) | Pour La Victorie Tote (similar)

I had a major #pinkbagmoment when I walked into Calypso St. Barth recently & spotted this Marlow Sweater. If you remember here, pairing a chunky knit with a pencil skirt is my new favorite fall trend & I couldn't wait to replicate it with this Calypso cloud of a turtleneck. I love the complexity of mixing a knit with leather & topping it off with a printed heel. I found these killer CK wedges on sale at TJ Maxx years ago & only recently have been wearing them nonstop. They add a bit of dimension to an otherwise neutral outfit, plus wedges are as comfortable as flats, so.. a win win in my book.

Are there any fall trends you are lusting over that you'd like to see me recreate? If so, let me know! Merci from Paris & be sure to check out my current vacash on Instgram here.

The Natick Collection recently opened a new store, Lou & Grey, & I wish I was lying when I say I want everything. The PR gals of Lou & Grey (an Ann Taylor brand) asked me to hop in the store (only 3 weeks new!) & check out the collection. First, the store is simple, clean, & comfortable - bright whites, muted tones, & organized racks. Second, every piece of clothing is like heaven to the touch. The collection mixes sporty with chic, like these twill jogger pants & this coloblock textured tunic that I've been eying ever since I left the store. I ended up picking out a pair of high rise skinny jeans & lived in them all weekend. Paired with this white boyfriend shirt, it was the perfect canvas for this darling cicadia wing necklace & my new duster coat that I snagged at BR for my upcoming trip to France (which begins in.. 12 hours, eek!).

I highly recommend you check out Lou & Grey online or in the store & while you're at it, follow along on my Parisian adventures on Instagram here!
