{wear in the world: paris...}

for this second installment of wear in the world, i have a really special treat for you all! i got like / want / need to create a paris post! i had my people call erin's people and, after much haggling over fees and whatnot, i got her to do the post. all kidding aside, erin did an amazing job putting together TWO outfits - one for night and one for day - for our trip to paris. erin does a better job than me at explaining the outfit choices. so take it away, erin...


I tried to think of a full day in Paris and all that would encompass: walking around the Louvre and the Musée D'Orsay, eating a picnic lunch in the Tuileries, macarons and afternoon tea at Ladurée, walking the Île de la Cité to see Notre-Dame, and then a late dinner at the Cafe De Flore with glass after glass of wine, multiple desserts, and cognac...one of those truly decadent meals you get to enjoy too rarely in life. My first rule of traveling is to bring pieces that can transition from day-to-night so you're not over-packing unnecessarily (obviously freeing up room in your suitcase for all those souvenirs/French men/macarons you want to bring home). I tried to include a few key elements, like the trench coat, the black shoes (perfect for walking around all day, but still dressy enough - they're suede - to pair with a black dress for a fancy dinner), the simple tote bag, and of course, the ever important red lipstick, all of which work with any 24-hours-in-Paris activity. Stripes absolutely scream "Parisian" to me, and the black dress feels very Audrey Hepburn-esque; the perfect, classic LBD.

aren't erin's picks spot on? is there anything you all would add? any requests on where we should venture next?

thank you so much for playing along, erin! it's been an honor having you here.

  6. Erin did a great job, her picks are so Parisian! And I love the layout.

    So...about the reply button that you asked on my blog. I have no idea! It just kind of showed up one day. I wish I had the answers cuz you're not the first one to ask, lol. It must be a setting somewhere that I already had set up?

  7. Well, trés Paris and trés chic!

    Girl, you rock!!! Great job! Theresa, your blog is truly sexy!

    Fab outfits and just right for Parisian style.

    I went to see Barbara Streisand in concert a few years ago. Yes, she played in London BUT where does one go afterwards? Home? So, we booked Paris, dressed up and went at 1am to Brasserie Flo, where Jean Paul Gautier and others just arrived. It was a memorable evening!

  9. A job well done Erin!!!! I would wear every single thing you picked out and who could turn down a trip to Paris?!?

    Hmmm....where to next?....You have to do New York! And then maybe somewhere tropical?!? I just received the J.Crew catalogue in the mail and all those bright colors in there have me longing for those hot (but not too hot) summer nights!
