Rain Storm

ds_1xI hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving!  It feels surreal that a month ago, I was in Paris!  If I had to pick Davy’s favorite look during our travels, it would have to be this!  Doesn’t it scream Paris?  As simple as the outfit is, the navy and red just go so well together.  The striped sweater is from doublju, which is a mens brand from South Korea.  Clothes from S. Korea tend to be well made and the fits tend to be on the slimmer side.  Davy has liked all of the clothes from this brand since it’s well tailored and he’s appreciated the small details.  They’re available to purchase from Amazon, which makes it oh so easy and a bit dangerous!  On this day we had to wait out a rainstorm near the Louvre, but luckily we didn’t have to wait long.  You could tell Davy *loved* taking pictures.  Oh the things hubbies have to put up with.ds_2xSweater: doublju, Pants: Old Navy, Shoes: Converse

My Sacred Heart

sc_1Happy Thursday!  How is everyone handling this early winter chill?  I’m handling it by being ensconced under a fuzzy blanket with a hot cup of tea, working on my blog.  I visited the Sacre Coeur in Montmarte on this day.  It is a beautiful, magical church.  After many steps and endless hills we came to some stunning views.  One thing I did real well for this trip was packing enough coats.  This is one of my favorites I brought for my trip from UNIF (purchased from Urban Outfitters).  I fell in love with the asymmetrical cut.  The trench gave off an urban, Parisian chic vibe on a windy day.  The only drawback is that it’s not lined, so it is thin.  The best time for it is early fall and late spring, but it’s a great neutral layering piece!  And perfect for fall weather is trying darker shades for lips.  I’m wearing Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry.sc_4sc_2sc_3sc_5sc_6sc_8Coat: UNIF, Shirt/Hat: Forever 21, Jeans: Old Navy, Bag/Shoes: Zara

Cobblestone Streets

dp_1It’s not hard to find small cobblestone streets like these in Europe; they’re everywhere.  But try to find one without anyone in them – that’s more rare.  I jumped on the culotte bandwagon.  I decided to leap and try it out in Paris.  I love these pants from Stylenanda.  They’re super cute, comfortable, and they’re well made.  I think culottes look best with heels to help elongate the legs.  Unfortunately with all the walking I did, there was no way I would last in heels so I paired my outfit with sneakers.  I kept it urban and edgy with a leather jacket.  How would you style the culottes?   dp_2dp_3dp_4dp_5dp_6dp_7Jacket/Bag: Zara, Shirt: TjMaxx, Pants: Stylenanda, Shoes: Adidas, Hat: ASOS
