bonjour spring

Don't you just love when you can come up with a cute outfit with items already in your closet? Sometimes I get in a style rut but then I realize, I have so many options in my closet from previous seasons. That's where the inspiration came for this outfit. This skirt has been sitting in my closet collecting dust and I wanted to wear it. However, it's currently available at J.Crew Factory in two colors! The blouse had also been in my closet for a while since I normally only wear it in the fall. I combined the two and I am so thrilled with how the outfit turned out. Parisian style meets Blair Waldorf meets spring. I love how the three pieces combine to create a truly chic outfit.

I purchased this blouse last year after binge-watching Gossip Girl. I realized you can't really find a blouse more Blair than this, so whenever I wear it I try to play up the fact that this is Blair Waldorf's Constance school blouse. Many brands have blouses like this throughout the year such as Forever 21 and Nordstrom. I'll link a few for you all below so you can find one that suits you!

The fun, retro skirt was also a purchase last spring from J.Crew (now available at J.Crew factory!) I love the vertical stripes because it elongates but also jives well with the tie on the blouse. For my shoes, you all have seen these before. I love my Mary Janes from Marc Fisher. So elegant, classic, and perfectly matching this outfit.

Thank you all for reading! I hope you enjoyed my take on a Parisian style outfit, in front of a crepe shop! Shout out to the people inside the shop who probably thought I was weird for taking photos in front of a restaurant! Anyone else like crepes as much as I do? So delicious. I love them with butter and sugar and for a fancier option nutella and bananas! And if you haven't tried them- you have to. Probably one of my favorite things about France! I also take French if you didn't know, which explains my obsession with crepes and all things Parisian!

I want to give another shoutout to my photographer, Sydney! I have her links in my pops of pink post if you would are in the East Tennessee area and are interested in a photo session. 

As always,
