Teddy Coat on Avenue Montaigne

If you don’t already own a teddy coat…you need one…trust me.  This is the coziest everyday coat and I’ve been able to wear it everywhere from Paris, to LA, and NYC.  I’ve worn it shopping uptown, walking my dog, on the airplane, at the grocery store, to drinks with friends… It’s just one of those versatile closet staple pieces you’ll be so happy you have.  There are only a few sizes left in my Joa teddy coat, but H&M has a super affordable option here! I paired my teddy coat with this black bodysuit long sleeve T.  I loved it so much I also bought it in white.  Legit softest T everrrr.  It looks great with these Grlfrnd light wash denim skinny jeans! These DVF ivory booties made walking all over Paris a breeze.  The chunky heel and round toe were ideal for long distance!  It’s always a bonus when a shoe looks cute and is actually functional and wearable. I’ve been constantly updating my the Paris section on my Travel App – so if you haven’t already downloaded it, you can do so by clicking the link here!

Houndstooth Coat at Carette

These photos from Paris remind me how much I love dressing for cold weather and layering.  In LA, I get in the habit of wearing sweats 24/7 since it’s such a casual city, and as nice as that is – I really enjoy an occasion and excuse to pull myself together! This & Other Stories houndstooth coat is SO reasonable and just a really well made piece.  It’s the PERFECT houndstooth pattern, and I first spotted it on my friend Helena of Brooklyn Blonde.  Helena is one of my absolute favorite bloggers, she’s super down to earth and SO chic.  I legit want everything in her closet! I couldn’t resist accessorizing my outfit with a camel beret.  I mean, when in Paris right?!  It was freezing when we were there, so this turtleneck and these suede over the knee boots were lifesavers. I’m wearing another pair of L’Agence jeans – shocker – that add just the right amount of sexy and cool to any outfit!!!  I wore these lace up coated babies for a fun night out in Paris as well.  They’re the ideal dancing pants! My girlfriend and I enjoyed tea at the iconic Parisian cafe; Carette in the Trocadero which overlooks the Eiffel Tower.  They have two locations but the Trocadero one is my favorite because of the view!  Grab a seat outside, order macarons and croissants, sip on tea, and take in the beautiful surroundings!

Neutrals Along the Seine

I love a head to toe neutral look – and was inspired to wear one walking along the seine in Paris.  I’ve never been afraid to wear white jeans in the winter – and neither should you!  They look beautiful with any color coat – and really pop against a sea of black pants.  I’ve owned several pairs over the years, but nothing beats these L’Agence ones.  They’re super flattering, high waisted, make your butt look AMAZE and stretch (crucial!) I paired my winter white denim with one of my favorite coats from MaxMara that I picked up in Florence years ago.  MaxMara makes the most best coats that last a lifetime.  Every single one is timeless.   This coat from Nordstrom is the same classic beige color and under $200.  And this coat from The Outnet looks almost identical to my MaxMara one, but is a fraction of the price.  It’s a must for spring if you ask me! My Theory cashmere sweater kept me soooo warm – and is still available here.  This lightweight version just went on sale, and I’m loving this cropped v-neck with buttons as well.  Shop my entire look + tons of similar options below! PS these photos were taken at the Pont Alexandre III bridge which is a must see if you’re visiting Paris!

Winter in Paris

I have so many beautiful photos to share from my Paris trip.  I always feel soooo inspired in that city (it’s hard not to!)  You can still find magic on every corner even in the dead of winter in Paris!!!  Most of the pieces I wore from my trip are now on sale – so be sure to snap them up before they’re gone!  I LOVE scoring stunning winter pieces like this coat in end of the season sales. Soia and Kyo is a relatively new to me outerwear brand that has some of the chicest, high quality coats on the market.  I’ve been eyeing this pretty taupe wrap coat – and this one for spring. I can’t stop wearing this faux croc bag from Mango which just got restocked in this style.  Trust me – you will wear it with everything too. Speaking of pieces that can be worn with everything, this Wolford turtleneck bodysuit is AHHH-MAZING. Bodysuits instantly slim your entire figure and they just make you feel good.  Seriously, if I’m ever feeling blah I slip one on with high waisted jeans and my day turns around.  This one from H&M is a total steal – and I’ll link a few of my other favorites below! Last but certainly not least, can we talk about this BCBG dress? (Similar here!)  I bought it in St. Tropez 5 years ago for a fun night out on the town, and to be honest, after that night, I rarely wore it again.  When I was packing for Paris, I saw it hanging in my closet and thought maybe I could “winter-ize” it.  I put a turtleneck underneath – and wallah – the dress came back to life and the outfit was made!  I love re-wearing pieces and am excited to keep styling it for seasons to come.

Currently Coveting

TGIF!  Even though it’s still winter, I’ve got my eyes set on all things spring!  I wanted to share a few things I’m currently coveting when the weather finally starts to warm up! Marissa Webb has been one of my favorite designers for years – and this top from her latest collection is gorgeous.  It would look so good with these Mother light denim jeans and these strappy black lace up sandals. The leopard skirt trend isn’t going anywhere and I am loving the smaller leopard print on this skirt!  You could wear a simple white T with it, or a beautiful black blouse like this one.  I just bought this blouse because I was in desperate need of a new one and loved the tie detail! I’ve had this Mason Pearson brush for almost a decade.  It’s expensive, but obviously high quality since it’s lasted this long.  It’s so gentle on my hair and the only hair brush I use.  I just re-ordered this Bibliotheque candle for upstairs – heavenly! I’ve been wearing either OPI Funny Bunny (a creamy white color) or OPI Lincoln Park After Dark (a deep purple color) on my nails, but am dying for a change.  I love the Chanel red! These mini pearl earrings are so fun – they’re a great everyday piece.  I link to these sunglasses all the time because they look like my Sonix pair – bonus they just went on sale!  This bag is a splurge – I can’t get over the color – obsessed!  Have a wonderful weekend!
