Who needs a top when you can just wear your silk scarf instead? This is something I would wear on repeat over the summer when I got bored of my closet and wanted to switch it up a little. The versatility of your mom’s or grandma’s everyday silk scarf is one of the best things to have in your wardrobe and I rarely want to leave without one.
It’s summertime, which means barbecues between friends and family, days spent by the pool, and admiring the flora around you. There’s something so uniquely pleasant from watching and listening to the light breeze rustling the leaves on trees. In the countryside, it’s so easy to spend hours admiring the unpretentious world around you and feeling the utmost sensation of being calm. Watching the stars at night, observing bees collect pollen from a distance, sitting on freshly hydrated grass. Nature is majestic, watch and take it all in.
Spice up your outfit with a statement mini skirt for the spring/summer. If it isn’t warm enough, do it anyway by topping it off with a cozy sweater and a semi-long coat. Wrap it up, buckle it, add fringe to it, whatever you want. But go on, show off those legs.
This place is one of the loveliest secret hideouts in Paris. The cult brand Sézane is known for its clothing and accessories online but they also have a store where it was born. A trip to Paris only to visit the store might be a little excessive but if you happen to be in the city then do pay a visit to Sézane’s Appartement, Librairie, and Denim Atelier. They’re all situated on the same block so you can hop from one to the other. Currently the Appartement is under renovation but it will be open once again in April 2017. Still, the Librairie would have to be my favorite out of all three because you are free to sit down, grab a coffee (on them!), read, and look through their adorable bags and stationary. You are free to spend as much time there as you want, luckily, because it’s just so welcoming and snug that you may never want to leave.
The first signs of spring are starting to show in Paris, which is wonderful because the flowers are blooming and the climate is warmer. Everyone finally gets out of hibernation mode to enjoy the streaks of sunshine and to soak up that Vitamin D that one desperately needs after winter. The thing about spring is that it gets tricky trying to figure out what to wear because the mornings tend to be cold whereas the afternoons are warmer. It’s that hesitation between either wearing a summer jacket or a winter coat, yet by the end of the day one always seems to take their extra layer off just to feel what it’s like to be in a shirt again.
