Paris Fashion Week 7 years ago

My Chanel Moment

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.
