Inevitably, when I wear a striped top and a pair of black jeans I feel a shift in my attitude. I know it’s weird; clothes have that effect on me. Or maybe I’m just imagining having a type of sartorial elegance that I normally don’t feel. Certain pieces of clothing like black jeans and a basic striped top have a je ne sais quoi about them. Why you ask? It’s the French Girls uniform and honestly, who doesn’t want to covet a little French girl swag?  Since I’ll sadly never be a Parisian I can at least emulate their style ethics by investing in basic pieces and accessorizing around them.

    omg, your shoes are so cute!! I love the little perforated design! And French style is so chic. One of my favorite Parisian looks was worn by Carrie in SATC season 6 when she goes to Paris. Stripes are the ticket! <3

    Aww I love this! Such a cute casual outfit! I love how black and white and denim go together so well! I can definitely feel the Parisienne touch here! :)
