C’est tres chic!

{Perfect Parisian Style}

It’s no secret that I have had Paris on the brain lately. Well, maybe not just lately as it seems to be a constant presence in my mind and in my dreams. I absolutely adore the styling in this shoot with Raquel Zimmerman for Paris Vogue. The outfits are très Parisienne and I would happily wear any one of them. I happen to be a big fan of a long, lean, flare leg jean and love that Raquel is wearing them here. The High Heel Flare from J.Crew has been my favorite for quite some time now and I was devastated when they were discontinued.

While I love warm weather, it is already 90 degrees here in Houston. I’m sure we are in for an extremely hot summer, which is all the more reason to dream of cooler temperatures in Paris along with all of that wonderful architecture, fashion, art, and the pastries. Oh, the pastries!

{This ensemble is so chic. I love the navy blazer paired with the smart white jeans. The YSL belt is fabulous!}

OBSESSED! with that YSL belt! I know what you mean about the JCrew high heel flare jeans..I bought them in white right before they ran out online. I plan on taking extra super special care of them so they last for years!!

I like how the striped shirt leads your eye down to the fab belt.

I love the first outfit and covet a pair of those J. Crew jeans, but I REALLY want a pair of those UH-MAZE-ING long legs! :)

Perfection! I seriously thought that first image was you! You and Raquel bear a resemblance.

Love white jeans + navy blazer: perfect summer office look. And I can't BELIEVE how hot it feels right now. Worst part is that it's only going to get hotter!

Beautiful outfits in the most beautiful city in the world! I wish I were there, oh yeah... the clothes would be great too! xo

Oh how I wish I could pull off these looks like her! And I adore that she's drinking a Starbucks Frappuccino in the first pic!

Simply Luxurious said...

Gorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous! First of all, Raquel Zimmermann seems to be everywhere which is completely and perfectly okay by me. But this French style is my favorite to wear personally - casual, feminine and unassuming. Beautiful images. Thank you for sharing.

By the way, stop on by the blog when you have time. I have a few things I'd like to give you. =)

Ok.. I wanted to comment on the fact that I love the YSL belt. But, so does everyone else! I guess we all have a similar taste - that must be why we all read your blog everyday!! Thanks, Paloma!
