A Bit of French

  
Culottes: Thrifted (old)
Shirt: borrowed from sister
Neck Scarf: Vintage (gift)
Shoes: Old Navy
Earrings: Thrifted
Bag: Thrifted (Coach)
Lipstick: Revlon (Ultra HD Matte Lip Color)

I may not be the most "french" person there is (really I lack many things french), but I do love any style inspired by french fashion and culture! With that being said, I love how straight forward French style tends to be (its really so predictable). When I think "french" style, I think stripes, solid colors, neck scarves, and classic gold jewelry. Of course, its always fun to mix it up a bit, so for this look I opted to make it more french fashion meets 2017 spring styles :)

This season has had me dreaming of travel nearly every day! I have always wanted to travel, but recently the urge has been more readily surfacing and I find myself thinking of all the different places I could go, the amazing sights to see, and the styles that would accompany me:) France is definitely on my bucket list because it has so much to offer and there is so much art, history, and culture to be had. I think travel is a great way for us to not only learn about the different cultures around us, but it is also a great way for us to further culture ourselves with different cuisine, traditions, and lifestyles. 

With travel on the mind, and France as my inspiration, I chose to wear black coulotte pants for a comfy and classic look as well as to also take advantage of the spring "coulotte" trend. Of course with black pants stripes are a must, but I went a different route than normal with these also, and borrowed this flowy ruffle sleeve top from my sister which is the cutest (and comfiest) shirt ever! A french inspired ensemble is never complete without a neck scarf and I love everything about this vintage scarf that was gifted to me by a friend. I finished off the look with my old navy clogs, a classic hammered gold dangle hoop earring, and my vintage brown satchel coach purse. 

Looking back at this, I think I am ready to hop on a plane to France! 

Have you ever been to France?
Are you dreaming of travel like me?

  2. I actually thought this was a skirt! Haha! But I was going to comment that I never like this length of skirt, but that it looks so good on you! I don't know what it is about this outfit that makes it look better! But of course, now I know it's not even a skirt, so whatever lol!
