Je Ne Sais Quoi?

October 4, 2012

Bonjour beautés!

When it comes to fashion icons many fashionistas will undoubtedly place Carrie Bradshaw among the listed.  I am no different — she’s absolutely amazing.  This look was inspired by her character’s journey to the city of lights & love — Paris, France.

Sweater ::: Old Navy (in stores now!)
Skirt ::: ASOS (old)
Costume Pearl Necklace ::: F21
Purse ::: Vintage (courtesy of my mother)
Peep Toe Pumps ::: Calvin Klein (old)
Mixing prints is not a fashion faux pas — when it’s done right of course.

American Girl in Paris — Carrie Bradshaw

When I traveled to Paris last summer I was intrigued by the complicated simplicity of the Parisian woman. They are mysterious, confident and understated; yet some how they are able to exude subdued sex appeal.  Us American girls can take a few pointers from them & I’ve recently come across this book that might help — Entre Nous: A Woman’s Guide to Finding Her Inner French Girl, by Debra Olliver.  (How fun, right!)

I met up with my friends Brianna & Jessica (she’s behind the lens) for cocktails at a lovely place in Jacksonville’s San Marco area called Bistro Aix — named after the French town Aix-en-Provence.  It was my first time there but I plan on making it one of my “go-to” places to dine.

Oh, before I forget. I love French music and I want to share this great cover of Zou Bisou Bisou, by Jessica Pare.  It has that je ne sais quoi, no?

Stay Lovely Signature
