paris??? moi??? oui!!!

So today's original three part "shoe" posting got kicked to the curb because last night my husband gave me the most wonderful early birthday present that I just couldn't resist to share. I went into his office ranting about some tedious people and things that have been putting me in a sour mood all week and he couldn't help but blurt out the plans that he just made earlier in the day about a long weekend in Paris on my birthday next month! I was sooooooooooo surprised by these amazing plans and screamed then jumped out of chair to smother him with hugs and kisses (I know I know - TMI). I can't believe that I am lucky enough to have a husband who is utterly swamped with work and has zero free time but still is taking me away on such an romantic trip. I seriously feel like the luckiest girl in the world! I immediately started dreaming up what I needed to pack for the trip and thought to myself I need to re-watch all the Paris SATC episodes pronto! I just loved everything that Carrie wore in those episodes. It will be a lot more of boiled chicken and egg whites till mid February so I can indulge on brie, baguettes and bubbly while we are in France :)

Below are some of my favorite looks from that season and places to buy so you can recreate the look for yourself!

my black and white striped boat neck shirt will be making an appearance for sure


thousand layer dress - oui s'il vous plaît


I seriously adore when a coat perfectly reaches the hem of a skirt or a dress - so pretty


I will be over the moon if I find a cafe that has this "turner & hooch lookalike" to share pastry with


will definitely need jeans, knee boots & warm jacket for strolling around in February


the "big" ending


I channelled my inner Carrie Bradshaw a few years ago at a friends Halloween party,  my all time favorite costume (ironically the night I really fell in love with my husband)
