{Real} Paris street style

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

I know Paris Fashion Week has been all the rage for street style lately, but here's a little glimpse into what {real} Parisians wear. (OK, there's one non-Parisian in the mix. See if you can spot it!) I kept finding myself seriously drawn to the menswear and I can feel myself evolving... less boho, more grown-up (maybe it's the haircut) and Paris was the perfect place to be inspired. And can I just tell you, I'm so in love with the mature French woman and her effortless, yet distinct style.
This gloomy, overcast California day is the perfect time to study these subjects and start dreaming up my fall wardrobe wishes.

PS - today is my beautiful sister Mandy's birthday. Happy birthday, sis! Someday we'll go to Paris together. I love you. xx

    1. I KNOW! LOVE that jacket. Isn't it all just fabulous? I'm really drawn to the last pic and hope I'm half as classic and chic as that woman as I mature. xx
