paris: notre dame.

dress: gap. button-up: j.crew (similar). cardigan: the limited, sample sale (similar). shoes: steve madden. hat: H&M. sunglasses: ray-ban. bag: vintage. 

paris was amazing! it's such a beautiful city with so much to do and see. this was our first day - we visited notre dame which is absolutely beautiful and has amazing views of the city from the top. i wore a black dress with a flannel button-up (worn open like a cardigan) and layered my chunky cardigan over for a little bit of warmth (even though we lucked out and had pretty great weather) ... i found this vintage bag in a brooklyn store the day before we left and i'm so glad. it was $18 - bargain! and had tons of pockets for all my stuff (maps, museum pass, phone, lipstick) ...

hope everyone on the east coast is staying safe from the storm! hopefully it won't be too bad. we're ready with canned goods, water ... and champagne and st. germain cockatils :)

p.s. if you missed it last week, i was featured on my friend's blog, laney blue designs - check it out here!

dress: american apparel. cardigan: the limited, sample sale (similar). scarf: j.crew (similar). shoes: steve madden. bag: j.crew (similar). hat: H&M (similar). sunglasses: ray-ban

i love this american apparel dress, it's so easy and versatile - you can dress it up or down. this is a pretty simple look so i added fun accessories - wedge sneakers, a hat and leopard scarf.

black & cream.

top: old navy (similar). pants: joe fresh. shoes: fendi (similar). bag: zara (similar). snake bracelet: species by the thousands. bangle: house of harlow. skinny gold band: by brooklyn. skull ring: thanks to ladybird!

i kind of in love with these pants... they're silk and soooo comfortable. i want to wear them every day! these shoes were given to me by my sister, kristin, because they didn't fit her well ... i'll be honest, i don't wear them very often ... but i should because they're so pretty. this outfit is pretty basic - black pants with a cream sweater ... but i paired it with leopard flats and a studded bag to add some jazz.

happy friday!

top: joe fresh (similar). shorts: levi's. shoes: nike x liberty. bag: j.crew (similar). sunglasses: ray-ban.

i still get excited every time i wear my nike x liberty dunks. and even though i'm not ready for cold weather, i am ready to wear my favorite, slouchy sweaters again. once it becomes too cold for bare legs, i'll add tights and pair this look with booties.

countdown to paris ... one week from today, woo!

happy hump day!

vintage plaid.

top: ralph lauren, vintage (similar-ish). shorts: levi's. shoes: keds. bag: louis vuitton

denim cut-offs with a button-up is probably my favorite outfit these days ... shocking about the denim cut-offs, i know. this shirt is so soft and comfortable and made it's byrdie debut back in march (see here). i bought the little gold ring on my middle finger from this cute boutique, by brooklyn, which only sells things made in brooklyn - so cool. 

the "smile" charm on my bag was given to me by my sister, meg, years ago when i was having a tough time with my job at that time and wasn't sure what i wanted to do with my career ... it made me smile then and still does so i haven't been able to take it off. it's a nice little reminder. 

happy monday!
