Butterfly Shift Dress

This weekend, I decided to bring some major Parisian vibes to the streets of Pasadena! Now that I think about it, I should have put a French baguette in my purse and you might have thought I was strolling down a street in Paris! I'm not sure if shift dresses are particularly Parisian but I think pairing them with a smart-looking white button down blouse gives off a classic and chic French vibe. I definitely fell in love with this butterfly print shift dress when I first found it on Anthropologie's website. At first, it seemed to sell out in most sizes but now it's back and restocked, so I made sure to snatch it up before it was gone. I didn't want a dress this cute to fly away!

The one thing that is certainly Parisian about my look here is, obviously, the beret! To be honest, I've been a little obsessed with berets lately! (I guess I am not the only one because I'm seeing them at a lot of stores these days.) My obsession started when I found a cute pumpkin beret that I purchased this year for Halloween. The obsession was then cemented when I saw the 1967 movie Bonnie and Clyde. While I might not be able to pull off the beret as glamorously as a Faye Dunaway did in her portrayal of Bonnie, I think it definitely adds a chic, cute look to any outfit! Clearly, this outfit is more Emily in Paris than Bonnie and Clyde but that just goes to show that the beret transcends different times and places and is, therefore, a classic!
