Shop My Outfit:
Bonjour! We’ve been back from Paris for almost 2 months and it’s still on my mind. Our Paris trip really impacted me, as I find myself craving a lot of the foods we ate there (crepes, macarons, etc.) and I can also tell my style lately has been very influenced by our visit. I’m finding myself gravitating toward scarves (a staple in French fashion), especially after my lovely mother-in-law gave me this gorgeous one. She gave it to me the week after we got back and I immediately knew exactly how I wanted to style it. I have been dying to get this tulle ruffle skirt from Chicwish and even thought about buying it for our Paris trip. It didn’t seem practical for sightseeing, so I decided to wait. There is just something about the French style that is so chic, like adding a scarf. I love that this one is neutral and has metallics which make it dressy. It’s pretty oversized, so I had to fold it in half to make sure it didn’t cover my skirt up. This scarf can be styled many ways and I cannot wait to wear it in the winter, too.
I thought pairing the skirt and scarf together was the perfect touch. The pearl hair clip is really in right now, and I thought it was the perfect way to style this look. This beautiful photo location was a bit windy, so note to self: don’t wear a scarf for a windy shoot. If we were going to Paris in the late spring, I would would have had to pack this skirt. Like most Chicwish items, this skirt runs a little on the small size. I was glad it was fitted in the waist though. I highly recommend paying attention to the sizing charts. The quality of this piece is amazing and it’s worth every penny. This will be the first of many times I style it here on my blog and Instagram. It gives me major Carrie Bradshaw vibes. I can see myself styling it with a striped top, or I could even see it being worn in the fall with a leather jacket.
What is your biggest fashion inspiration right now?
I love this skirt so much!!
Thank you so much, Jennifer.
Beautiful Courtney!! European fashion makes for such great inspo. Y’all’s trip seriously looked amazing!
Thank you so much, Annaliese! The ladies really are so stylish in Europe, so inspiring. Aww thank you, it was truly amazing.
The skirt is very Carrie Bradshaw in the last episodes of Sex and the City, in Paris!
Thank you so much! I was very inspired by her.
You did amazing putting this outfit together Courtney! The skirt is SO PRETTY!! Gotta love tulle and the layers are a fun detail. The scarf goes well with the top and pulls it all together. I like the pearl hairclip and the camera bag matches so well with the skirt. I am sure you are taken back to Paris many times as you go about your back in reality!! Parisians know how to dress and inspire us. Have a nice evening, Terri xo.
That is so sweet of you to say, Terri! I love anything tulle and ruffled. 🙂 I am so glad you think so. I really am, I day dream of Paris now. Parisians are so chic and I love their style. I hope you have a wonderful week and hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day! Xo-Courtney
Aww you are welcome Courtney!! Tulle is a lovely fabric and ruffles are a favorite also! I can imagine you day dreaming, of the Eiffel tower, champs Elysees and the cute cafes!! Mothers day was so nice, we had a nice day at home and then went out to a bucket list restaurant . I am sure you got to talk to your Mom Yesterday. Take care, Terri xo.
I completely agree! Ahh yes, Paris is so dreamy. I am so glad you had a nice mothers day at home then went to a bucket list restaurant. I did 🙂 My mom and I talked for a while, it was nice. Sadly I didn’t get to see her though.
