back in action

I’m back from France and can’t wait to tell you all about my Parisian fashion finds. I have yet to edit my photos because I started a new job this week so things have been a little hectic. I’m still at Salesforce but now working as a writer for the Marketing Editorial team. I promise to resume regular posts this week. For now I’ll share a few of the general trends I saw in France.

For the most part, what’s popular there is also in here—blazers, neutrals, oxfords, and trench coats were some of the major similarities. The weather in Paris felt very San Francisco while we were there. It was chilly some days, rainy some days, and sunny every once in a while. Even in early June many ladies were still sporting tall boots and scarves. I felt right at home!

The famous striped shirt was one of the more common trends. Not just for mimes, mon amis. They were everywhere. So French. So nautical. So chic. Many attribute their popularity to Coco Chanel. I don’t remember them being as hot last time I was in France 6 years ago. Perhaps we have Audrey Tatou to thank for a resurgence?
