Photography by Karen Chen

These photos were taken in Los Angeles right before I left to Paris. I still remember my excitement that day as I as in the midst of prepping for my trip. As I’ve mentioned in the past, my outfit inspiration comes from so many places. Sometimes I’m inspired by something I see on the streets, or a feature in a magazine. This time around my outfit was very much inspired by the adventure I was just about to embark upon. When I think of France I instantly think of beautiful landmarks, cafe’s, love and stripes with a pop of color. Like I mentioned in my recent video HERE, stripes and a pop of red is actually one of my favorite combinations! It’s a classic mix and it always makes me think of France. But I had to amp it up a bit and add my own twist to it by adding a leopard print with my shoes!  I’m so excited to share with you in my upcoming posts all of the beauty and all that I experienced during my time there. So stay tuned for that. Till then au revoir.

Loving all the stripes recently. And I love this tank. The cut is so flattering. And paired with the pants stripes, they complement well. This coat is such a great slouchy fit. Gives this entire vibe a laid back cool!

Cute tank, love the straps on the neckline and that it’s a higher neckline tank with a loose fit, adorable with the hat fedora ;)

Have a wonderful weekend!
