Vintage Find: Gold & Baby Pearls

Just love vintage jewelry finds...and was delighted when I came across these gorgeous 14k gold & baby pearl earrings! Aren't they lovely? I'm thinking they'd go perfectly with a little black dress... or anything black really - or better yet, all black! ♥

Lovely Knits & Sweaters

With cozy winter days and nights just around the corner, finding all sorts of loveliness in knits and sweaters, especially those with subtle fabric braids, like the first one below. Perfection would be combining these with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans, whimsically tousled locks, and an oversized soft leather tote

Falling for Fall

As the weather continues to cool and winter edges a little closer, enjoying those remaining moments perfect for running around the city in a classic trench and with coffee in hand, of course!

Style Inspiration: The Whimsical Braid

While the braid has always been a classic style, am discovering that it is quickly returning as a popular choice for fashionable women everywhere. It's always been a personal favorite as I find it to be so elegant!

My heart flutters for all things floral

I adore the femininity and flirtatiousness of florals. They make everything seem just a little more lovely, a little more sweet, a little more hopeful! Happy Tuesday dears!

Delightful Details

Recently smitten by all sorts of delightful details that seem to add that something special to an outfit. Whether it's a lovely backless dress with a whimsical bow sweeping the lower back, or a chic leather cuff complementing a lovely purse, or a bold pencil-line running down the back of sheer black tights - it's the details that captivate me the most! Here's are some of my current favorites in no particular order... well... except for the first which might just be the most delightful of them all!

French Chic

I simply adore French style and decided a short post about french chic was in order! 
Wouldn't you agree that somehow French women always look flawless?! Not only that, but they make it look effortless... as though they simply threw the outfit together in a quick moment and voil√†! Here are a few elements (and some gorgeous images to follow) that seem to make up french style...
simplicity and minimalism. here skinny jeans, solid colors (with lots of blacks),  a classic trench, and of course the striped tee are absolute staples!   
details details details! yes, its all in the details when it comes to French women... whether it's a sexy pair of shoes, or a gorgeous purse, or an over-sized scarf in the winter and a lovely silk one elegantly tied around the neck in the summer... it's the details that transform a look from basic to perfectly chic!  
investment pieces. French women often remark that they don't own tons of clothes, shoes, and accessories - rather they buy the basics and complement them with a few investment pieces that while expensive, last a lifetime!
What's your favorite elements of french style?
 Ellie
