Everyday Layering

Sometimes even a style blogger has to be a little on the cozy side. Its awfully hard to have "dress down" days in Paris because.. well.. no one really dresses down so I always feel the need to look nice (semi-nice, at least)! However, the good news is that Parisians have perfected effortless casual.. and I'm slowly learning.

I just paired a pair of comfy black jeans with a couple of really long flowy tops, a favorite flannel, and an army jacket. I accessorized (quite obviously) with a chunky black scarf, leather bag, felt hat, and ballet flats. The only drawback here is that my legs look much shorter than they actually are in this outfit.. but you can't always have your cake and eat it too. Cute, comfy, and fun for a day of shopping.

Versailles round two... I absolutely love it. It's one of those spots that you can visit over and over again it just never loses its magic. This time I wore a long vintage red cotton dress, and covered up with a cropped sweater, leather jacket, and fluffy scarf. 

I love classic looks that make you feel beautiful and nostalgic for the past. This dress was one of my favorite vintage finds in New York this summer.. Although I'm usually not a fan of red and black mixed, I really loved the way it worked here. It's always nice to incorporate some bright color into the cold grey days that are so plentiful here.

Isn't Paris just beautiful in the fall? I can't get over it. The foliage and crunchy leaves have been making me crave all kinds of rich and rusty colors like burnt sienna and brown leather. I can't help mixing big chunky knits with feminine patterned dresses either.. it's becoming my Parisian uniform. 

I've been building quite the vintage collection, too. From sweaters, cardigans, jackets, blazers, skirts, dresses... It's actually becoming a problem because I have no clue how I'm going to get it all back home in December - I don't even want to think about it!

I have a very special visitor coming this week.. we will be doing outfit shoots every day.. I promise I'm going to step up my game :)

I've successfully returned from my first weekend traveling Europe with some friends.. Amsterdam was so amazing. I absolutely fell in love with the colors of the city and the vibrance of the people. We had no plans set in stone, so we spent the majority of our two day stay wandering around the city by foot..through actual sleet and rain.. yea. C'est la vie.. it was still a wonderful weekend and I got to visit a couple of museums that were on my list, among many other activities.

Being that the weather wasn't cooperative at all, I only managed to snag a couple of outfit shots this week.. I promise I'll have a new ootd post this coming week :)

I Hope you enjoyed my little recount of my small weekend away.
