Sunday Style: Perfectly Parisian
Well, it happened again. I had a perfectly lovely outfit to wear and it dumped snow on us again. I can't really get away with wearing the beautiful striped dress and heels when there is so much snow on the ground! I am so over winter!
Anyways, I started a new challenge on Instagram yesterday called Style Me March. If you're on IG, you can use the hashtag #stylememarch to follow along with all of us doing the challenge. I love Hilary Rushford and the style challenges that she puts together. These are fun because they encourage you to use what you have and it's just basically a theme of sorts for the day. I can be as creative as I want when planning my outfits. Today's theme is Perfectly Parisian.
Now I have never been to Paris (I would love to go though someday) and am not really sure what one might wear there but I confess I did look at Pinterest to see what Parisian style might be. I already had a notion of what I might try to dress like when I picked out the striped dress that didn't work out due to the weather. I saw a lot of stripes and trench coats and black so I knew I would be okay with basically whatever I chose.
I decided to pair this Chanel-esque sweater from New York and Company that I purchased a few years ago with some black denim. It's too cold and snowy for a skirt. I found this striped sequin tank (new with tags still) from Loft hanging in my closet and thought they would be a good match. Now I need some color in my life, so I decided to wear this coral flower necklace to top it off. I actually ordered this necklace from Groopdealz last year when they were all the rage. I am wearing my black booties from Kohls and using my leopard clutch from Forever 21.
I am also wearing sunnies from Loft and the green ring I found at Old Navy. I'm actually loving this outfit today and think I would wear it again! I'm not sure how Parisian it is but it sure is a fun outfit to wear going out or staying in.
Here are some pics from today's outfit:
What do you all think? Parisian enough? Are any of you doing this challenge with me?
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
