Paris I Love You

What I'm wearing:
*H&M Navy/white striped Ruffle Sleeve Sweater (similar here)
*Forever 21 Woven A-Line Skirt (similar here and here)
*Loeffler Randall Button Flats (similar here)
*Michael Kors Black Oversized Watch

This puffy sleeved sweater is definitely out of my comfort range. I didn't actually pick it out, it's my sisters' but I decided I would try it today. I felt Parisian in it, I always do when I wear stripes, so I decided to take a pic next to my decal of the Paris skyline. You can get a glimpse into our teeny kitchen, and this is the counter top where I usually eat breakfast. There is another stool, but my camera is actually balancing on it.

This Forever 21 was also a nice surprise. I had ordered it when I ordered the pearl bib necklace from yesterday, and wasn't too sure how it would look in person. I love it, it has pockets, and the best part I think is the bow in the back!

The only thing that annoys me about it is that it wrinkles easily. Even as I type this right now it is super wrinkled... not sure if it will be worth re-steaming before leaving the house.

Speaking of Paris I haven't been there since my Europe trip after graduation, but I am wanting to go back so badly! I fell in love with it when I was there and this is probably my favorite photo I took while I was there...

(No-buy update: Day 3 and counting, it isn't too hard right now but that's probably because I still have some new things to wear.)


  1. Love the outfit- so chic! Very Parisian indeed!

  2. LOVE this outfit - I want that skirt, but it would be way too short on me just like every skirt @ F21!
    You look adorable and very Parisian!

  3. Is that decal from Blik? I love how you put it over the bar - my kitchen is set up similarly and would love to do the same thing.

  4. Pretty look - love the ruffles on the sleeves of the top!

  5. Oooh, I agree, the skirt is really great for Forever 21! I was going to guess it was a J. Crew piece!

    And oh la la, I've been dying to go back to Europe too. Part of my shopping ban is so I can travel with the money I'm saving. Stay strong!

  6. This outfit is perfect on you, love every piece!

  7. Ooo, the decal is so cute! Where did you get it? Is it stuck to the wall? And the bow on the back of the skirt is adorable! Too bad it wrinkles easily -- because wrinkles = ironing and ironing is my enemy. You're right in that there's something very Parisian about stripes. I love it on you!

  8. You look super cute! I almost bought that top but felt the same way. I was unsure how it would turn out in outfits. You definitely made it work though! Beautiful pic!

  9. my heart skipped a beat when i saw this outfit! you look soooo adorable! and then, when you turned around, it skipped another and i hope i don't need to be resuscitated soon! ha!
    that photo of paris is amazing! i have never been but now i want to go more than ever!
