parisian chic

lipstick// NARS, Schiap 
jacket// Paul & Joe Sister {similar here & here}
dress// c/o 4.collective {use code ADORN4C14 for 20% off!}

I once heard Ken Downing say that it's incredibly French to mix navy and black, and I defiantly took that little styling tip to heart. Whenever I wear black and navy, or tonal black, I instantly feel Parisian chic. Maybe it's the moto jacket, maybe it's the ankle boots, but when I wore this look I felt feminine yet tough, and totally French. There's something about the Parisian way of piling on beautiful basics that can stand on their own that feels so fresh, French, and always makes a statement. Au revoir!

This time of year, tis the season for festive extras that make us feel merry and bright. We all love the tried and true classics that are sure to bring the holiday glam like bright red, electric plaid, cozy fur, stunning sequins and anything that adds some extra sparkle. And this year I'm loving lush extras in unexpected colors like this powder pink puff. Even though light pink isn't traditionally associated with holiday style, except for the Sugarplum Fairy of course, I'm loving the unexpected pretty that this pink fur collar brings. Paired with classics like this 4.collective LBD, a trench coat, my leopard clutch and strappy heels this holiday look is festive yet understated and pretty in pink. In this little number I'm ready for holiday parties, and a visit to the Kingdom of Sweets {you know...the Sugarplum Fairy's neighborhood}!

mad for plaid {pt.2}

sunglasses// Karen Walker 
trench// McGinn 
stripes// Chance Co. 
pants// Trina Turk {also LOVE here, here & here}
flats// J.CREW {similar here}

Today marks part two of my mini-series "mad for plaid!" With this casual look that I wore to brunch, I took print mixing to the next level pairing these tartan trousers with leopard and some of my favorite stripes. My sleeveless trench and basic black bag anchor my look and pull all of my printed pieces together. At this time of year, I say when you're getting dressed pile on the pattern, glamor, sparkle and fun!
