I’ve never actually been to Paris, but from what I’ve seen in pictures, it seems as though all Parisian women just have an effortless style and always look so incredibly chic. Their style has always been an inspiration of mine, but I’ve never really been able to nail down a perfect Paris outfit. When planning out this post, I honestly had a hard time figuring out what I should wear because I feel like I don’t have any clothes worthy enough to be considered “Parisian!” But what I came up with is this: all black with a classic white tweed jacket, inspired of course by the one and only Coco Chanel. When I think of Parisian fashion, I instantly think of Chanel–tweed, the iconic Little Black Dress, pearls, a quilted bag… All so chic and timeless.
Below is a graphic that Farfetch put together, inspired by (my favorite) fashion capital, Paris. On this graphic, you can see a glimpse of some of the best Paris-based designers and read a little bit about it’s iconic style and looks.
Yesterday my parents and I enjoyed a yummy Sunday brunch at my favorite cafe, Champagne French Bakery at South Coast Plaza Village. Not only is their food delicious, but it almost makes you feel like you’re really in Paris with the outdoor “sidewalk” seating (which I wish we had more of here in Orange County!).
Right after sitting down outside, we saw my cousin Nate walking by! He works at the mall and was on his lunch break, so we invited him to sit down and have a coffee with us while catching up.
I ordered the Brioche French Toast which is probably the best french toast I’ve ever had! I also really like the Pesto Turkey Panini and the Breakfast Crepes. As far as drinks go, I ordered a peppermint mocha, but the White Peach Iced Tea is delicious as well!
