You know how some things just feel so inherently French? A plain turtleneck. Black and white stripes, or simple polka dots. Black ballet flats. A red lip. The ever classic French beret. So what happens when you throw a couple of these French staples together? Maybe you get something a little cliché…or just maybe you get an outfit that is trés chic – Parisian Chic, that is. 😉 Okay, okay, I’ll stop being corny. Let’s continue, shall we?
This shirt was one of those things that I knew I had to have as soon as I saw it. It felt classically French, but the large front tie and dramatic balloon sleeves made it outlandish and maybe even a bit modern (besides, who doesn’t love being a little extra at times? 😉 ). Something about it just screamed “me.” Plus, one of the things I loved about it is that it looked expensive! And expensive, it absolutely was not. Hello, 10 dollar find from H&M. This exact one I’m wearing is unfortunately sold out now (pretty sure it was sold out online when I found it in store too), but I linked to almost an exact replica below, and another fantastic H&M blouse with a similar silhouette and giant bow opportunity. So win win.
Pair this blouse with a classic vintage Dooney trunk, some pom pom mule slides and a pom beret to match, and you’ve got an ensemble that screams über romantic, with a side of Parisian Chic.

Now that the holidays are over and the new year is in full swing, I’m really excited to dive into all my plans and goals for the year – one of them being cultivating this blog more, and of course scoping out more unapologetically “me” outfits like this one. I’d love to hear from you guys if there’s anything particular that you’d like to see more of here on the blog – more outfits, more lifestyle, more couple stuff, more personal stuff?
Leave a comment below and let me know what you’d like to see more of in the new year!
