Oh, Paris. The city where I feel most alive – whether it be the ambiance, the architecture, the way of life, or the fashion. Everything from the cobblestone streets to the slower pace of life always energizes me to my core while also relaxing my entire being. It’s truly my favorite place in the world, so being able to spend the last couple weeks here has been everything and more. Freddie and I decided to rent an apartment after closing out the unforgettable Cartier partnership. We’ve frequented the local Farmer’s Market, drank coffee and champagne from our quaint patio, walked around the city covering corner to corner and have loved every second.

And you know I can’t do a Paris trip without packing my go-to Parisian uniform. This changes year after year, but so many details of this look remain the same. Something chic and not overdone. Something effortless yet stylish. Something that resembles the French girls I crush on every time I’m visiting (and from afar!).

This season, I took my love for the schoolgirl look and mixed in other elements of a Parisian uniform. Plaid mini skirts are a fall staple whether in Paris or the states, so that was what I built the outfit around. From there, I looked to boots that would be comfortable to walk in – after all, the French never try too hard. ‘Tis the season for over-the-knee boots, and I’ve fallen hard for these Stella Luna beauties. Like any proper French girl, a head accessory of sorts is necessary. I chose a black brimmed hat, but the headband trend would have been equally as fitting. Finished off with neutral pieces like a cream turtleneck and this buckle Boyy bag and voila! This year’s version of my Parisian uniform.

If the French never try too hard, why are you? The items are lovely on you but you really don’t need to pretend to be French. It’s very overdone for the past 5 years and most French people I’ve met don’t dress like that

Never pretending to be French, but a girl can love a style or country without being from there. Feel free to skip my posts if they don’t suit you. Best!

The Parisian uniform is perfect, I absolutely love it!! The otk boots are my favorite along with the skirts.

I’m obsessed with these boots! Thank you for the love!

Thank you babe! Plaid is everything right now right??

This is such a lovely outfit, I totally have to recreate something like this on my blog. Manierabydale.com.

It looks simple yet so stylish!!

Aw, let me know if you do! I’d love to see it on you.

What I love about this outfit is that it’s actually my London uniform too haha! I’m a sucker for a plaid skirt and a sweater and a hat is a must!


I know you’re a true “New Yorker” now but I feel like you’d fit right into life in Paris perfectly!! In the future? *wink wink*
