Is anyone else super obsessed with dark green right now? I feel like I’m seeing it everywhere and I just can’t get enough of it! Green has always been one of my favorite colors but I don’t wear very much of it, although I do love a good mint color in spring. Darker greens are perfect for fall though, and I’ve been loving all the pieces I’ve seen, including this dark green mini dress. I love how this green works almost as a neutral color- it’s great for pairing with so many different colors and accessories.
Our final full day in Paris was a little more relaxing in that we only had one thing on our list but we were still on-the-go for most of the day. I couldn’t go to Paris without visiting a fancy palace and I was so excited when we were able to fit a visit to one in our itinerary. We opted to skip Versailles (and the infamous crowds) and instead went to Château de Fontainebleau.
Fall in Phoenix is tough. Everyone else is breaking out their cozy clothes in dark, moody colors but it still feels like summer here. It’s just not cool enough yet to break out the warm sweaters and scarves. So instead I’ve been buying light tops and dresses but in deeper colors so I still get my fall fix. This burgundy lace dress from Yoins is one of my latest finds. I love the rich color but the short length and lace sleeves still keep me weather-appropriate.
Day four in Paris was probably my favorite of our entire trip. We still managed to do a ton of stuff but it felt a lot more relaxing after the previous couple of days. I think it helped that we didn’t travel across the city as much and the places we visited weren’t as overwhelming as say, the Louvre. Our visits at each stop were much shorter and it seemed like a bit of a lazy day, even though it wasn’t at all. We began the day with a quick coffee stop before taking the metro to the Musée D’Orsay.
For the most part, I tend to stick with solids for my clothes but when I find a really fun print, I can’t resist buying it. Pretty colors always draw me in, which was the case for this watercolor dress. I loved the swirls of blue, pink, and purple and I’d been eyeing it for months. I finally pulled the trigger after our Paris vacation- the print reminded me of all of the impressionist paintings we saw on our trip. As such, I’ve affectionately named this my “Monet dress” and it makes me happy every time I wear it.
Every now and then, you find the perfect dress. Something that you never get sick of, something that is always fun to wear, and something that works for almost any occasion. This periwinkle dress checks all the boxes for me. It’s several years old but I still love to wear it and it’s one of the easiest pieces in my closet. All I have to do is throw it on and go, but I still love adding fun accessories so it doesn’t look like the same outfit every time. It’s perfect for work but the light fabric is also great for parties or as a dressier look while traveling. What could be better than that?
