94_02_grid_shirt_jbrand_leather_pants_banana_republic_preslie_black_whiteWhen I first visited the Palais Royal in 2014, I promised myself I would come back and shoot an outfit there. What I didn’t know was that I would fulfill that promise just a year later!

94_03_jbrand_leather_pants_banana_republic_preslieThe black and white columns made such a fun backdrop, and obviously appealed to me and my love/obsession with black and white. They also brought out the kid in me, and despite being in heels, I had to jump off a few just for fun. I’m sure everyone around me thought I was nuts. 🙂

94_04_grid_shirt_jbrand_leather_pants_banana_republic_preslie_black_whiteThere are a few items in my closet that I’ve had for over 5 years, and this cardigan/vest thing is one of them! Vests are a big trend right now (see my last post), and while this piece isn’t a traditional vest, it is a nice nod to the trend. I particularly like how it frames my loose-fitting top and keeps the eye moving vertically, adding the illusion of extra height.

Their heels are amazingly comfortable, and as my coworkers can attest to, I wear a pair of BR shoes to work every day. Be sure to check out their sale items, which include these caged heels, and get an additional 40% off with the code BRSALE! (Sale ends 6/30.)


More Paris-related posts are still coming! It’s been a slow process sorting through my photos… I was pretty trigger-happy with my new camera LOL.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
