Paris is currently buzzing with couture week and though I am actually stuck in NYC working on projects, I can’t help but do a quick flashback to my Paris uniform. I had just left a long brunch at the very elegant Apicius restaurant, soaking in all it’s beauty in the courtyard. It’s a spot I could stay at all, sipping a cappuccino and catching up with friends or simply lying down on the grass with a good book. Classically Parisian, yes? This is a look that will remain timeless and forever in my closet. It’s my version of the 3-piece suit. A little cropped jacket as a top, oversize flared trousers, and a really gorgeous and lightweight wool trench coat. This is a look that could easily be thrown on with beat-up leather combat boots, but for Paris, I always step it up a notch, slipping into a delicate Christian Louboutin mule and grabbing my Cartier Guirlande bag before heading out the door. It’s funny that wherever I go, I tend to adapt. I get inspired by the grand architecture, the gloomy weather that makes you want to curl behind a cup of coffee, and the effortless je ne sais quoi. Paris will always be a spot that I get to go back for work to. Short, but sweet, with a hectic schedule and a lot of jetlag. This year, I’ve been mentally preparing for my year of travels. I’m ready to see new places, new countries. I’m sure there are many more places that will give me the same amount of inspiration that Paris always does time and time again.
