What can I say? This looks is very French. It was not until after I put it on that I realized I matched my favorite cafe in Paris, Café Bonaparte. Honestly, the only thing missing from this look is a baguette in my hand lol!
Whether in Paris or at home, navy and red has always been a favorite color combination of mine. And just white fits perfectly as a neutral to complete any red and navy look. This look started with this cashmere striped sweater. It is so soft and warm, I couldn’t resist. Since moving to Georgia, I have really had to step up my sweater game. It is a lot colder here than I had anticipated. Obviously, when I decided to spend some time in Paris over the holidays, this sweater was the first thing that I packed.
I paired this sweater with two of my closet staples — a red a-line skirt and navy peacoat. Of course, adding a red beret was a no-brainer. Finally, let’s talk about these shoes! I scored them on sale before I left and I was a little skeptical that they would be comfortable enough for travel. But the button detailing on these pumps (also seen here) was too good, so I decided to risk it (I hate uncomfortable shoes when I travel because I love to walk, a ton!). Surprisingly, they turned out to be really comfy and I wore them all day (not just for photos) with no issues. They are still available and on sale here.
I find that when I travel, my looks are often inspired by my surroundings. I love to capture the essence of a place in my clothing. Sometimes it is not very subtle, like this look (or this Amalfi Coast look), but it is always fun to theme your clothing to your destination.
Do you match your looks to your destination when you travel?
