This maroon blazer is one of the many souvenirs I picked up while studying abroad in Paris last year. It fit me perfectly with zero alterations, and was in perfect condition – bargain! It’s too small to button, but who needs buttons anyway? I love the subtle pinstripes, it adds just a touch of visual interest.
Today I’m bringing you a proper outfit of the day, or tenue du jour in French. I was on a wee job hunt today, so I thought this comfy but elegant maxi would be just the right balance. I love the job I have now, and I’d really like to keep it, but I need some more income to throw in a savings account! If I want to move to France next January (oops! spoiler alert!) then I gotta start saving! Plus, I want to fill up my time, and a second job would be a great way to do that.
In about an hour, I’m gonna venture out to a French-speaking meetup, so hopefully others will be there and I can pratiquer mon Français.
First of all, let me apologize for the horrendous quality of these images! Let’s just call them “vintage” and “cool” instead of pixelated and grainy. ;)
You know those days where everything you wear turns out FANTASTIC? But you have nowhere to go and nobody to look good for?? Well, I had one of those moments today. I then thought to myself, “Hey wait! I have a blog!” So I quickly snapped some webcam photos, edited them Instagram-style, et voila!
