Can you believe Paris Fashion Week is over? It seems like it literally flew by! I wanted to talk to you guys a little more about the amazing look I wore to the Chanel SS17 show because it’s so important to me and it deserves its own post. I know I mentioned this yesterday, but I will never forget that exact moment I received my invitation to see the collection.

When choosing the right outfit to wear, I knew I wanted to go with something classic and timeless but I also wanted to add my own modern take on it.   And…what’s truly more classically Chanel than its staple bouclé jacket? My entire look included a matching tweed skirt that really showed how you can take a piece and make it more formal or you can throw on some chic jeans to give it more of a casual spin.  A good pair of denim can instantly make something classic feel extremely cool and approachable.

I personally love the juxtaposition of something extremely formal to something extremely casual. Originally, I was going to wear the matching set to the show but thought pairing it with jeans would be a bit more unexpected and more true to my own personal style. Thank you, Chanel, for having me be a part of this special day. I was left inspired and it will be a day I will forever remember.

This photo of you and Aimee with your words of encouragement and how you went in Paris together 3,5 years ago really melt my heart and brought tears to my eyes! It was a huge dose of inspiration for me! You both deserve it!

  • This tweed jacket is so chic, classy and timeless! Paring with these jeans was just perfect! Are these Chanel bangs coming in a set or individually one of each?

  • Dee says:

    What a gorgeous Chanel look! I am glad you went with the jeans for the bottom, they really are more true to your style, even though the skirt is beautiful as well! It’s been so much fun following your adventures at Paris Fashion Week, thanks for sharing all your outfits and experiences!

    Every fashion enthusiast deserves his/her Chanel moment. Reading about yours was fun. Live the idea of incorporating jeans to the look. Nothing better than adding a hint of personal touch to a look, especially when it’s Chanel and Paris Fashion Week.
    You looked great! You already know that. 🙂

  • Natali says:

    Incredible and inspiring moment! Your rock! Beautiful outfit too, the one for the books! 🙂

  • Thuy says:

    I’ve been gradually noticing how great Chanel makes their jackets! I like the juxtaposition you mentioned mostly because it represents balance to me. I like polish – a little elevation – to any casual outfit. And, especially if we’re talking everyday, if you have more elevated pieces, dress the rest down. It’s only unless it’s a specific type of event where I may want to go full one way. Like a gala – I got to go sultry, sleek, simple, and show-stopping while not being too overcomplicated. Always want a strong woman vibe. 🙂

    It’s always interesting to see how one matches Chanel jewellery to the outfit. And it’s really a statement to put two bangles on your blouse on both hands! Interesting!

    Love the patchy jeans look … I guess the all torn & tattered look is now all sewn up style! 🙂
    The sweater sleeves are so cute! A great Chanel moment look! 🙂
