Happy Saturday, loves! After spending a week in Paris, I’m finally back in LA! I’m happy to be home, but I’m still dreaming of all the fun times and beautiful sights in the City of Light. The macarons, our gorgeous hotel, shopping, and coming across the most adorable cafés throughout the city—every time I go back to the Paris, I fall in love with it more! (Did I mention the shopping?? I went multiple times while we were there!) I wanted to share one more outfit post with you from when KB and I wandered around the Eiffel Tower! (Plus a few tips for how to get that distinct je ne sais quoi French style!)
On one of our last few days in Paris, KB and I wanted to spend some time exploring the area around the Eiffel Tower. We got some lunch at a café, walked around, and ended up deciding to snap a few pictures of my outfit. I love how this look is a mix of casual and more dressed up pieces. Everyone at Paris Fashion Week did this, it seems like the French really have this high-and-low mix down to a science!
I started with one of my go-to weekday outfits, jeans and a tee shirt. These jeans, by GRLFRND Denim have a straight silhouette with a really cool frayed slit hem! Next, I added some dressed up layers and accessories! First, I wore this gorgeous blue coat from Zara and one of my favorite accessories, a skinny belt from Gucci. While in Paris, my friend Marianna convinced me to get a pair of black Gianvito Rossi pumps, which looked so cool with my frayed jeans! You guys know that I’m obsessed with all things Chanel, so I carried a beautiful quilted bag by the designer and finished my look with Dior sunglasses and a wide brimmed felt hat by 66 the Label. Read on to find out some French style tips that I learned in Paris!
French Style Tips
- Mix high end investment pieces and affordable options
- Invest in timeless pieces that you know you’ll wear forever, like a pair of classic pumps or an amazing purse
- Play up your best features (both in style and in beauty!) For example, if you love you legs, wear skinny jeans!
- Don’t be afraid to mix and match formal and more casual pieces (Like how I paired a Zara coat and tee with designer pieces!)
- Always have one detail that looks distinctly “undone” like frayed jeans or a messy chic hairstyle
I always leave Paris feeling inspired to try more adventurous outfits (and with a few new pieces to wear!) Do you ever wear pumps with your jeans?
