This was one of those days on which I did not take much effort for my outfit (it happens often I can tell you..), and that’s when I rely on my best basics.
It’s probably that French thing. Inès de la Fressange and other ‘connaisseuses’ of Parisian style would agree that if you invest in good pieces, they will last you a lifetime.
So I have a few cashmere cardigans in different colours from Zara, and I like to wear them with my striped Petit Bateau shirt (also a classic). Since I wear skinny jeans half of the time, today I’ve opted for a Boyfriend model from Blue Blood. Usually, the contrast of a slouchy pair of jeans with high heels is one I prefer, this wednesday I choose the easy road with a pair of grey Converse All-Star sneakers. My Camelia ring is from a vintage shop in New York (but secretly wish it was Chanel).
You can say this is also the Parisienne uniform. Just don’t forget to add an It-bag and a pair of designer sunnies before you go outside.
