Happy Wednesday everyone! So today is it! The last day working at Crossroads, I feel so many emotions I can’t even begin to describe what’s going on in my head. One thing is for sure, I am super excited/nervous for what’s to come for the rest of the year. Time can only tell I suppose!
If you follow me on InstaGram (which you totally should p.s. ;)) then you’ll know I’ve been engulfed in this fashion book Paris Street Style that I picked up at Anthropologie. For me, like most people – especially the fashionable set, Paris has always held this stylish allure. One of the best compliments I’ve ever received from someone about my style was from a customer who said I reminded them of how the French girls dressed in Paris. Whaaaa?! Did we just become best friends? Yup! (Please note, we didn’t really, cause that would’ve been weird, but I did seriously think it over in my head, haha!)
Back to my main point, I love this book! It breaks down the Parisian ‘je ne sais quoi’ quite magically and I find it interesting how many of their fashion do’s and don’ts were already a part of my style doctrine. Maybe I was Parisian in another life? If you like reading fashion books or just want something you can casually pick up and put down without losing the story, this is perfect. Especially for beach or poolside perusing.

Of course reading this book along with frequent trips to my holy grail of social media – Pinterest, has lead to me attempting to dress more “french“. I found the street style shot above and immediately fell in love. A perfect outfit for a steamy day, the neutral color palette helps you look (and feel!) cool and fresh. She managed to find the perfect balance between dressy and casual, I love the feminine blouse and skirt paired with a more masculine shoe and belt. Finally that clutch! *dying*
For my take, I definitely wanted to keep with the neutral color palette, but of course I had to add my own pops of color with a peachy-orange lip and a pop of neon pink in my shoes. All in all, I think a pretty good interpretation with touches of my own tastes in style.
How do you all feel about the allure that is Parisian style?
Thanks for reading!
