Photo Diaries: Paris 2013

I had an absolutely incredible trip to the City of Lights this summer. I positively adore Paris and cannot wait to go back. The culture in France is something you certainly won't find anywhere else. The subtle elegance of the attire, the overwhelmingly succulent aroma of working creperies, the vivacious performances of musicians on the metro- oh! oh! oh! Rather simple things, and yet, it's the simple things that make Paris so desirable. It's hard not to be envious of the effortless poise Parisian life has! 

Here's to many more overseas ventures!

chloe say what?

I am absolutely, positively, 1,000% in love with my new Chloe purse. It was a birthday acquisition from Paris and, as I have already stated, I am obsessed. Anywho, enough of the gushing. It's been getting consistently hotter (and even more humid, much to my discontent) and as a result I get to break out my shorts. Yippee Ki Yay!
Lately, I've been looking for a turban headband- something reminiscent of the 40's, yet modern- and I finally found one, as you can see. It's a great look paired with simple sunnies. I also recently purchased this sweater. Say what you want, but sparkly sweaters are a must have, in my opinion.

a dash of red

Red is such a universally flattering color and I can't help but find myself always leaning towards clothes of the sort. It in a way reflects how romantic summer in Paris can be! Cliche, yes, but why not. There are so many books detailing the whole 'Parisian Chic' look as very minimalist and in all honesty, they are 100% correct. This is my interpretation of that; basic red sheath and my trusty flats. 
Happy Saturday!
