I’ve always dreamt of having my very own flat in Paris. However, at this point in my life with a baby and a growing family, I doubt that will happen anytime soon. But come on, a girl can dream right? So when I found this place, it allowed me to live out my Parisian dream for a minute. From the intricate crown-molding on the ceiling to the gorgeous detail on the walls, I felt like I had been magically transported back to Paris! My outfit couldn’t be any more perfect for the setting. Although this looks like a dress it’s actually two separate pieces: a sweater and a skirt! My top is this sleek black turtleneck that I’ve been wearing constantly. You all know how much I love turtlenecks! I love this one in particular because it’s light weight, which is perfect for California winters, and perfect for layering! I paired it with this a-line wrap skirt and of course my favorite lace-up Aquazzura shoes.

Everyone knows that you need a little black dress but I believe that everyone needs a little black skirt too! What I love about this skirt is that you can pair it with some gorgeous heels for a dressed up look, but you can easily make it look cool with some sneakers or a pair of flats. Although this is a simple black look, the detail from the silhouette and shoes makes it a very strong and bold outfit. It had me wanting to twirl around in my (make-believe) Parisian flat all day!

    Yes, a girl can definitely dream (especially if it’s about a house as gorgeous as this one) <3 Loving this elegant all-black outfit! And totally agree – an LBD is essential to the closet, but so is a little black skirt 🙂 The outfit options are endless! You look beautiful as always!

    Love this outfit and all the outfits you made in your video. I wouldn’t do the jeans one though but just because I don’t really like jeans. Turtlenecks are one of my favourite staples 🙂 Grew especially fond of them this season but I currently only own thicker knit versions. I don’t feel too confident buying a thinner one like this because I don’t know if I can currently pair it with stuff in my closet.

    “Sometimes the biggest statement is not making a statement at all.” <- Loved this line in your video.
