To Paris With Love

I ordered this Paris "Destination" tee from J. Crew months ago and it has been sitting in my closet ever since. Somehow, I just never got around to wearing it even though I adore its depiction of all things related to Paris, including some of my favorites such as baguettes, croissants, macaroons, and wine. (Perhaps I was waiting to go on an actual trip to Paris?) It's funny how all of my favorite things involve French food and wine! Then again, it's what the French are known for! Well, food, wine and great art!

Originally, I planned on pairing this Francophile tee with something more dramatic like a big puffy tulle skirt; I thought the look would be reminiscent of Carrie when she goes to Paris in the last season of Sex in the City. Instead of tulle, I opted for stripes, which I think are equally chic and Parisian. This skirt was actually only $17.99 on TJ. Maxx's website. Since it was a little bit chilly out, I also added a salmon colored denim jacket from Old Navy for a pop of color for spring. Although I'm just strolling though my neighborhood, you could easily imagine me strolling down the Champs-Élysées!

  1. I love this skirt! The stripes are so cute. I also love those little kitten heels! I love the pastel color for Spring!

  2. That is such a fun tee and you're right it does work perfectly with your striped skirt :) I've seen a lot of red jackets around, it's really making me regret the one I donated a while back. I'm hoping we get some autumn weather soon so I can pull my red jeans out! :)

    Hope you are having a great week!
