We shot this look on a particularly magical morning at one of my favorite places in Paris: Le Café Marly. Though I definitely have a few favorite cafes in Paris, I must admit that Le Café Marly is particularly special because it offers the most amazing views of the Pyramid and the Cour Napaléon. So whenever I find myself in Paris, I always try to carve out some time to spend an hour or two enjoying a cup of coffee and a croissant on its shady terrace, though Cafe Marly’s Napoleon 3rd dining rooms are equally impressive.
Fact that my outfit seems to match the decor perfectly is rather incidental, although this gorgeous Akris coat I wore to the show somehow never felt out of place. Always a fan of the classic black and white color palette ( similar option here & here ), what I love about this particular one is the slightly oversized fit perfect for pairing with cropped denim, or in this case, lace-up leather pants and embellished mules.
These embellished Manolo Blahnik mules ( similar here, here & here ) are a fairly recent find but definitely one of my favorite pairs at the moment. Love the way I can wear them with distressed denim, sleek leather or pretty cocktail dresses. Love the crystal embellishment on the front, because as you well know when it comes to shoes, I live for those special little details! Love how surprisingly comfortable they are! Wore them all day long and my feet were perfectly happy! Basically love absolutely everything about them!
