OOTW: FRENCH CONNECTION

 

Now that vacations and getaways are happening again, we can't help but have our minds set on traveling abroad. No city exudes charm and chic simplicity quite like Paris. That's why this week, we are channeling our inner Edith Piaf with an outfit built for exploring the streets of France. 

We are starting off our look with updated staples that are great to have in any closet. This "Atlas" top by Live The Process has a classic polo design made from an ethically sourced ribbed-knit jersey comparable to silk without compromising strength, durability and longevity. We paired up the breathable piece with Chloé's modernized wide-leg wool blend pants, which are made in France. They sport a mid-rise waist and pleating at the hips that gives volume and creates a flattering shape. 

Adding some major Je ne sais quoi to our feet is Cult Gaia's stylish leather sandals. The "Vivianne" style are made from two strips of PVC set atop a stunning gold-tone chain like heel. We kept the Parisian charm going strong with a statement necklace that literally screams, "Yes!" Italian Gold's Oui design is made from 14k gold and features a .01 ct. diamond accent and lobster clasp. When it came to choosing a bag there was really no other choice than Olympia Le Tan's ode to all things French. This hand-embroidered clutch showcases the Paris Metro and enchanting Eiffel Tower. Is it ringarde? Fièrement!  

Our final accessory is perfect for an adventure-filled day on the sunny streets of the City of Light and Love. You'll be seeing the world through rose-colored glasses with Linda Farrow's elegant Valentina shades. The oversized, squared shape in a delicate shade of pinky beige recalls the retro frames of the 70s. If there is one thing French ladies are known for, it's their beautiful, luminous skin. Paris-founded brand Guerlain offers a fresh, lightweight, and mattifying primer (made with 97% naturally derived ingredients) for a flawless, pore refining, and longer-lasting makeup application. 

Whether it's a romantic trip with your better half or a fun girls' vacation, in this look, everyone will be feeling your fabulous "French Connection."
