Parisian Balconies

Paris, FR

Happy Monday!

I had another productive weekend tying up loose ends, organizing, and cleaning out my closet!  I listed tons of dresses, coats, and shoes for sale here on my Poshmark should you be interested :)  I’ll be selling a bunch of my furniture in the coming weeks, and announcing it only to email subscribers so you can get on the list here!  The apartment I rented in Paris last month was soooo dreamy and had the BEST balcony with views of the Eiffel Tower.  I got a ton of inspo from the way they decorated the apartment – with a mix of vintage and more modern/retro pieces.  It definitely got the wheels churning for me!

One thing I love about Paris is how hypnotizing it is.

It’s just so romantic…from the intricate architecture to the faint smell of fresh bread and croissants wafting down the street… all of the elements just transport you into this dream like state.  You can’t help but move a little slower, soaking in your surroundings with a grin on your face the entire time.  It really does have such a nice mix of hustle/bustle + activity, and complete serenity + solitude.  There are so many hidden pockets throughout the city to get lost in!

It warmed up a bit on our last day in the city, so I wore one of my favorite blazers; this red one with gold buttons from Laveer.  It comes in black which is also to-die-for, and completely makes an entire outfit.  It’s such good quality and the fit is just right.  I paired it with these coated denim jeans from L’Agence (shocker), and my trusty Wolford turtleneck that hopefully some of you were able to snag during the Shopbop sale!

When it comes to colorful clothes, the only pop of color you’ll find me sporting in the fall or winter is pretty much red.  I have always loved wearing red.  It’s a powerful color that makes a statement.  It’s equally feminine and masculine, and looks good on everyone.  Every once in a while, I’ll veer from my normal nude nails and wear the perfect shade of red nail polish; OPI “The Thrill of Brazil.”  It’s less orangey than the popular “Big Apple Red” and more of a true, deep red.  It’s been my go-to shade of red polish for years and looks gorgeous when you’re wearing a predominantly neutral outfit.  Red nails with all black is beyond chic!
