It’s getting colder and life is getting busier. Busier as we get closer to Thanksgiving, to Christmas, to New Years, and to many new things. It can get stressful, but one just needs to remember to take a deep breath and keep on living because that’s what one should do. I feel like this is what autumn is all about: things start to fall so they can be re-born again. Take a stroll in the park and watch the leaves turn into different colors, wear warm sweaters, drink tea and read a book. It’s the little things that make life great.
I have to admit, I miss Paris. It’s my home, how could I not miss it? When I lived in Paris, I felt that my style was always changing, which is normal since I was still in high school and I was trying to define who I was. I think my style will never be properly specified, but I do know in the direction I’m headed in. Or at least I hope I do. This summer, most of the outfits I wore were simple and laid-back, occasionally adding a hint of minimalism or boho. I always try to balance an outfit by making it effortless yet chic. That’s very nearly the essence of French style, and I find it works well for everyone. It’s just a question of adopting that philosophy. Anyway, I was never one to wear motif T-shirts because I found it quite difficult to incorporate with other pieces. But I managed to keep it casual by plainly wearing a white butterfly T-shirt, boyfriend jeans, white ankle-strap heels, and a red bag for a nice pop of color.
In this quick weekend getaway to Paris, I decided to spend half a day in Versailles. It was absolutely stunning – the flowers had bloomed and the weather wasn’t too hot or cold. I hadn’t been for quite a while so it was the perfect day to go.
Summer is so close! Who’s getting excited? I know I am – school is almost over and the sun is shining. So I’m putting on my skirts, loose shirts, and my statement sunglasses.
