Whew! I'm so glad to be done posting pictures from our time in Italy - much as I love the opportunity to reminisce about Venice (ah, Venezia!), I have been dying to start sharing pictures from our new home! So, for those of you who don't follow me on Twitter, we're now in.... (drumroll please)
Paris! Yup, just when you thought this trip of mine couldn't hit any more romantic cliches, we're now living in the City of Lights in springtime. We've even been favored with more ridiculously gorgeous, unseasonably warm and sunny weather ever since we got here - perfect for sightseeing, or for the occasional nap in the hammock on our new balcony.
Despite all that, I had a bit of a rough morning the day we took these photos, and so I headed straight for a few of my favorite pieces in search of a sartorial pick-me-up. This skirt is definitely in a class of its own within my wardrobe - it's one of those rare garments that makes you feel way cooler than you actually are, and every time I wear it I feel like I'm just radiating confidence. I'd worn it before paired with black, gold, and cognac, but for a warmer daytime look I decided to try mixing the stripes with some colors. I've always found the combination of red and pink irresistably cheery, so I linked a few vintage necklaces together to wear as a slightly bolder statement piece over my more muted tank, then topped it all off with this great Berber bracelet my mom got me in Tunisia - I love the single stripe of bright blue beads.
