American Girl In Paris

Last week I went to Paris for the first time and fell madly in love. It was pure magic from the moment I stepped off of the plane.

Prior to my spontaneous trip to the city of lights; however, I gently panicked over what to wear. The weather was a brisk 54 degrees (quite chilly for this Southern California girl) and I knew I’d need to pack layers.

Not wanting to break the bank, I opted for affordable basics: a t-shirt from Old Navy and a hat and booties from the Gap. When it came to denim I turned to old faithful: a distressed pair of Frame Denim jeans which I cuffed to show a bit of ankle. I’d been jonesing for an over-sized coat and found a reasonably priced option on Shopbop (please ignore the fact that my coat is wrinkled from being shoved in my carry on bag). For the accessories I opted for a few of my staple pieces: Club Master Ray-Bans, Hermes enamel bracelets and my cross-body Rebecca Minkoff. All-in-all the look was a pinch of Annie Hall and perfect for exploring Paris.
