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.

|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?
