California Girl in Paris

If there's any place perfect for getting fabulous and wearing what makes you feel great, it's Paris. There is definitely something about dressing up and looking good that makes any experience that much more enjoyable, so what better place to embrace this creative outlet than in the fashion capitol of the world? I got this dress from Reformation a couple weeks prior to this shoot but didn't actually wear it out until the day of, as I specifically wanted to rock it for the first time while strolling around the streets of Paris. 

The aesthetic I was going for with this particular look was a California-meets-Paris sort of vibe. The floral maxi dress and tousled waves added a bit of a Bohemian flare to the ensemble, while the sleek black heels, sunglasses, and chain link bag served as more sophisticated touches. With this combination, I was able to stay true to my West Coast roots as well as keep things très chic.

The print of this Reformation dress is absolutely gorgeous, and this piece in general is one of my favorite garments hanging in my closet right now. It's simple and breezy, as well as a statement piece that stands strong on its own. As mentioned earlier in my "English Rose" post, Reformation is a brand I'm head over heels for and this dress only enhanced that admiration even more. 

Unfortunately, this shoot also took place on my last day in Paris. Despite it feeling a bit too short, my trip there was definitely incredible while it lasted. Some highlights include visiting famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, strolling along Champs-Élysées and eating a great deal of delicious macaroons from both miscellaneous bakeries and from the best of the best - Laduree! I couldn't have imagined a more fabulous way to experience that magical city for the first time. Until next time. :)
