Man oh man… The Parisian Pull, as I like to call it, has been strong AF lately. I have this deep longing to be there, even more so than I typically do. Ever since I first visited Paris in October of 2014, I’ve felt a gravitational pull towards the city. Sometimes it’s stronger than others, but it’s always there. (It’s very similar to the first time I visited New York… I knew instantly that the city would be a part of my story one day.) I’ve considered moving to Paris for the last few years, and it’s definitely not off the table yet. Not permanently, but for an extended period of time. I would move in a heartbeat if one of my friends would go with me… Any takers?! I spent a few weeks there by myself this past fall, thinking that maybe it would scratch the itch, if you will. It only made it stronger, though… It was a good trip for recognizing a few of the challenges I hadn’t even thought of, too. If I choose to make the leap one day, there are a whole lot of logistics to figure out on the running a business from a foreign country stand point.
ANYWAY, on a much lighter note than figuring out my life plan 🙃 … I’m always in search of little pieces of Paris! Whether it’s a cute coffee shop with French vibes, a restaurant that transports me to one of my favorite arrondissements, a styling trick that has that je ne sais quoi, or just a piece of clothing with a little French flair, nothing makes me happier than finding something that speaks to my Francophile side. I just found the cutest little embroidered tee… One with a few rips and one without them! (And it also comes in black!) I think I’m going to order the ripped one immeds. Can’t get over how cute it is! And this France to USA sweatshirt?! Love it! Here are a few more favorites with some French flair…
The sweater I’m wearing is pretty much sold out everywhere, but I found it available online from Harrods in London if you’re interested! For sizing reference, I’m wearing a 1 for a fitted look, but you could size up for that oversized look, too.
I’m loving the influx of little silk scarves that I’m seeing everywhere for spring! They’re such a chic little add on. Whether it’s on your wrist, tied on your bag (like I did here!), or worn at the neck… Très chic!
