Bonjour mon peeps!! lol Excuse my Franglish , but I am just trying to lively up your day with a bit of French inspiration! I have always loved many aspects of French culture. I studied French in both high school and college and my middle name is Renee (which I casually go by when I refer to myself in French (not First) person..lol) So being enamored with the romance and street style of the fashion capital, Paris, I am here to serve up le Fashion du jour.
Let me just tell you how in love I am with this boater hat (H&M, $7)!! I just love it! I feel like a new age Madeline (all my 80's babies should get the reference).It can take a look to a feminine ,chic, and somewhat dapper. Wide leg pants that are somewhat cropped really can give a look a much more masculine yet structural look. I chose to pair my black wide leggers (Shein.com $9) with a with button down dress (Brook Brothers factory outlet $19.99).The length really gave me twist on the typical black and white ensemble. In French fashion, I added a feminine bow (thrift , $3) to my button down. Accessory layering is also becoming one of my newest hobbies. By stacking my pearl choker with my bowtie I am maximizing tow minimalist pieces without looking gaudy. However it wasn't enough. As you all may know by now , I live for a standout look. So I grabbed a silk color block Bill Blass scarf (thrift, $3) and folded in diagonally and tied it in the back and boom!! The bright primary colors of my scarf seemed to take my look from 'oh' to 'ooh la la!!' I needed a shoe to accentuate my skinny ankles, but not take away from my look .My Just Fab (14.99) zip-up pumps appeared to do the trick. My mini bag is a oldie but goodie from Zara.com ($10), and of course I added a little pom pom just for the sake of fashion. I hope you all really enjoy this look as much as I did putting it together and shooting it.
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
