Real: Stripes in Paris, what a surprise

I've always loved stripes and this blazer in particular. I have just found that it works with casual outfits, layered over a blouse for work, and for everything else in between. I have bought this one a while ago in H&M but have found that they have a very similar one in stores now too (I believe it's $49.90 so you better get to it fast!). 

It works great with my lace-up zara booties which I can't live without (or go two posts without wearing) and my favorite skinny jeans (I wrote about them here). Layer some gold jewelry, and my leather bracelet I have bought in Joe Fresh a few months ago (for which I constantly get compliments for because everyone thinks it's Hermes, giggle). 

 I'm wearing:

Stripped blazer - H&M
Dark wash (super) skinny jeans - Abercrombie
Shirt with lace sleeves - Forever21
Lace-up boots - Zara
Black patent leather chain bag - Zara
Layered necklace - H&M
Leather cuff bracelet - Joe Fresh

Real: The last of the winter days in Paris, with some tribal print

Don't you just hate those winter days when the skies are blue and sunny, and you so foolishly believe (or hope) that spring has finally arrived. Then you walk outside in your cute little spring jacket, still with the unworn smell, and literally turn into a popsicle? Yes. That has been happening a lot to me lately. The New York weather has been acting like a woman going through menopause. As in that situation, we have no other choice but to weather through (pun intended). 

However, on this beautiful Paris day I decided to still wear my cozy gray zara coat and my favorite tribal print scarf. I paired it with a ballerina bun and my braided bangs since I was having the day after the flight hair disaster. This is my first outfit post from Paris and I am oh, so, proud of the wonderful photos my friend Milica (with the C being pronounced as an S, don't make me punch you) took of me. They were taken in the courtyard of the Louvre which is divine beyond explanation. Everything about that city makes me wonder about all the wonderful things humans have created and how we never truly appreciate it anymore, apart from millions of tourists which snap photos of things they don't know when, how, or by whom were built by. Those peeps are precious. But, before I go into my raging critique of tourists world-wide, why don't I stop. Just stop.

I'm wearing:

Gray coat - Zara
Tribal print scarf (it's actually a poncho) - H&M
Black patent chain leather bag - Zara
Dark wash jeans - Abercrombie
Lace up boots - Zara
Gold ring - Forever21
