Hi there!

I'm so sorry for the delay, I've been working on a musical (West Side Story) on the Connecticut shoreline both as performer and dance captain so I've been completely overwhelmed with that lately! 

I was recently in Europe on vacation and wanted to take the next few posts as a style and travel blog of my looks in the cities I visited. In this Parisian look I tried to embody the classic Parisian laid back chic with some up to date trends like embroidery, ripped pants, and the loafer mule Gucci has made so popular.  

I styled a casual Free People embroidered floral black and blue top with a black H&M ripped skinny jean and my recently gifted Aldo loafer mules that I have been living in! I finished the look with my Ray Bans and my Celine Nano Luggage Tote (check out my Poshmark store I've listed my Celine to sell recently as I'm currently downsizing my wardrobe a bit)! 

Mules were super comfortable to sightsee and go to the museums in, and have a cappuccino and croissant on the street... man I love Paris!

Stay tuned for another Paris look next before we venture to Positano then Capri on the Amalfi coast of Italy! 

Xo,
