Kisses from Paris

Everyday Outfits, My Style

{Zara Sweater and Skirt, Vintage Beret, Ralph Lauren Bucket Bag, Prada Sunglasses, J. Crew Shoes}

Yes, yes, yes – I know that most French people don’t actually run around in stripes and berets, but it’s fun to pretend. And hey, at least I don’t have a baguette sticking out of my purse. Because that would just be weird…


Black Watch Plaid

{ZARA Trench Coat, BROOKS BROTHERS Black Watch Plaid Dress, VINCE CAMUTO Ankle Boots, UNIQLO Black Watch Plaid Scarf}

Not sure if I’ve ever shared this with you guys before, but my husband has a thing for black watch plaid prints. Not gonna lie, it makes it SUPER easy for me to pick out his gifts for his birthday and the holidays. While I’ve been able to avoid having any black watch plaid furniture in the house, I do occasionally indulge him by wearing outfits that incorporate his favorite print. Over the years, I’ve built up a small collection of scarves, jackets, tops and dresses (I even have a black watch suit hanging somewhere in my closet).

Below are a few items I may need to add into the rotation…



Leopard Faux Fur Coat

Everyday Outfits, My Style

Leopard Faux Fur Coat {ZARA Leopard Faux Fur Coat (soldout online, but TONS of other options below) and Brocade Leggings (old), ALDO Faux Fur Muff Bag (old, but LOVE this one} and Suede Ankle Boots (also available here), H&M Wool Fedora, UNIQLO Cashmere Turtleneck}

A leopard faux fur jacket like this has been on the top of my wishlist for a while now, and I finally lucked out. It’s such a fun piece to toss on when it’s chilly outside. I’ve worn it to run weekend errands and have also thrown it over an LBD for a romantic date night with my husband. This particular version from Zara is sold out online, but I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites above. I especially like this one with a detachable contrasting pink collar. And if you’re up for a splurge, this option from Coach is absolutely divine (and on sale for 50% off!).

Since this coat gives me vintage glam vibes, I decided to dig out my faux fur clutch that doubles as a hand warmer. I got this purse on a whim two years back, and at the time I didn’t even notice the slip-through pocket in the front. I found one just like it in a gorgeous burgundy color here, and you can also try your luck on eBay or Etsy for even more options.
