Paris is never far from my thoughts. 🙂
We’ve had a few mild days in LA, and I wore a version of the outfit above earlier in the week.
My version included this striped top from J.Crew, which is one of the best I’ve found. The fabric has some nice weight and texture yet is light enough to go comfortably under a jacket; and cut is easy but not too oversized. The grey denim jeans in my outfit were these NYDJ skinnies in the “fall rock” wash, a very nice medium grey. And my jacket is an earlier season’s version of this Steven Alan boyfriend blazer purchased last year on sale (as is the current version). It’s a really outstanding piece, great quality and fit and I’ve been wearing it multiple times per week. Boots I wore were a pair of Stuart Weitzman’s that are now over a decade old, but the ones shown here are from Paul Green. If I were in the market for another pair of black ankle boots, they’d definitely be contenders. I love those wingtip details, and have found this brand to be extremely comfortable, even for all-day walking.
Included in the collage above are a couple of pieces from the new French Kande Spring/Summer collection just introduced this week, and from what I’ve seen online there are some gorgeous options. Above are a hematite necklace with a Bles d’Or medallion, and a double chain bracelet with an onyx cabuchon. I have my eye on this sea mist jade necklace with a silver medallion. But there are dozens of new pieces, including some medallions I haven’t seen before, so do go take a look. If you aren’t familiar with the backstory, the jewelry line was inspired by some vintage medallions that Kande found at a Paris flea market in 2009.
Tomorrow we have something on the agenda that promises to be a good time: Paris Cocktails at Little Door! Doni Belau of Girl’s Guide To Paris has written a book featuring 100 cocktail recipes from 100 different Paris bars, and will be teaching a mini-mixology class. I’m taking le Monsieur along, and we’re really looking forward to it! I’ll be taking pictures and will share on Facebook and Instagram.
Bon weekend! Anything fun planned for you?
