Off-the-shoulder tops and I have a very special relationship... Of course by special relationship I mean that I am completely and utterly obsessed, and could probably wear off-the-shoulder tops ( another lovely option here & here ) for the rest of my life and be perfectly content! So, I am taking full advantage of the warm weather we're still enjoying in LA by wearing as many as I possibly can before it gets cooler! Though I have spotted a few off-the-shoulder jacket & coat options, so if all goes well, I may not have to part with them entirely even during fall & winter! So, I'm afraid this particular neck line may remain a staple on this blog a while longer, hope you don't mind! :)

If you read my blog on the regular, you probably know that lip color happens to be a huge obsession of mine! Aside from the fact that the right shade can really bring life to your face, I love the way you can transform your look just by playing with different shades of lipstick and take your make up from day, if you're opting for a soft nude, to a full on glamorous look, if you choose to go with a bold red for example!

Though I fully admit that thinking about Holiday dressing in October may seem a bit premature, I actually prefer to shop for Holiday dresses early. You see, there is absolutely nothing I hate more than running around trying to find something to wear last minute for important occasions and having options available ahead of time, gives me a peace of mind and makes me feel prepared in case an unexpected Holiday event pops up!

I've always believed that accessories make the outfit! They can transform an ordinary outfit into an extraordinary one, and for me, the one accessory that plays the most important part in this transformation is jewelry. Why is jewelry so important to me? Well, I always felt that jewelry and clothing work together to define the look and the feel of an outfit, creating that perfect finishing touch that gives your ensemble polish and sophistication. In fact, jewelry is such an integral part of my sartorial identity, it is often a starting point when I style a look, and today's outfit is a great example of that.

Though I am always happy to be in Paris, I feel that this year we were particularly lucky because the weather was absolutely beautiful for the entire duration of our stay! Sunny and warm, it was precisely the kind of weather I always dream of when I go to Paris because it gives me a chance to indulge in all my guilty pleasures, like catching some sunshine while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate at the corner cafe and walking around Paris, exploring! :) October in Paris does tend to be a bit unpredictable. I remember last year, I was quite chilly while wearing sweaters & coats, so I can't begin to tell you what I delight it was to be able to go bare-leg & open shoulder without freezing!:)

I've been back in LA for less than 2 days now, and I already miss Paris dearly! Didn't think I would miss it so much and so quickly, yet ever since I got back, all I can think about is the fact that just a few days ago I was strolling down the beautiful streets of Le Marais, and enjoying breakfast at what's become our breakfast staple in Paris - Carette! Oh, what I wouldn't give for a cup of espresso and a fresh-baked croissant right about now!:)

I always believed there is something incredibly romantic about trench coats, and as soon as I spotted this beautiful denim number from Miu Miu, I knew it was just the perfect thing to wear in one of the most romanic cities in the world! Aside from the fact that I have a weakness for this season's elevated denim trend in general, what attracted me to this particular trench is definitely the slightly looser fit, luxe velvet panels and of course the rolled-up sleeves, which reveal just a pop of white lining underneath. For today's look I paired it with a few jewels from VivaLuxury collection, a velvet saddle bag & platform sandals, which were surprisingly comfortable to wear, and since we've done quite a bit of walking that day, I definitely appreciated that!
