What I Wear in Paris...beware of bad selfies.

Before we moved to Paris I knew I 
needed to update my wardrobe.
No more running to 
the corner store in yoga pants and sneakers!
So, while we were home for a few weeks
we all did a little back to school shopping.
Two things on my must have list
for fall...
pencil skirts and blazers.
The pencil skirt is so versatile..and it comes
in so many great colors now! 
During the day I wear one with boots, tee shirt,
jean jacket and my trusty pearls.

....or with boots and a cardi

or flats and a cardi.

...and if Steve and I are going to dinner..
heels and a blazer.

I need to figure out how these 
French women walk around in heels 
all day.
How do they do it?
You should see the blisters on my feet.


  1. Good morning Pam...Love the skirt! You look amazing (as I sit here in nike sweats and an oversized school t shirt!) : ) Have a great day!

  2. i'm wearing yoga pants : )
    you look fabulous.
    i love every way you've styled this skirt.

    question: where are your boots from? ♥

    1. the boots are made by Franco Sarto...bought at TJ Maxx! :)

  3. Love the outfits Pam! That is one thing about Paris, the women are so fashionable. I would love it and hate it at the same time. I mean it would be great getting dressed up everyday, but I would also miss being able to wear my Lululemon pants to the grocery store or to drop off the kids. Sometimes its just easier to dash out of the house in workout gear, it at least saves and hour or so of getting ready and somedays you need that extra hour :)

  4. I love all these looks! Pencil skirts and blazers are on my list too! I have some similar boots I wear all the time with leggings, skinny jeans and I love them with this skirt...tres chic!!

  5. I love Griffin's outfit :)

    Oh Pam, I wish I were there to teach you how to whip up a pencil skirt in under an hour! I bet Paris has fabric markets to die for.

    Your flat, your surroundings, your new style ... Beautiful! What fun :)

  6. The shoes in France are made with REAL leather! And the quality is far beyond what we have in the states.
    :-) That makes a huge difference!

  7. I just found your blog. What cute outfits! And how fun to be living in Paris. I'm going to have to try to get some more pencil skirts in my wardrobe. P.S. I LOVE that you have a Griffin. My 9 year old is named Griffin too. :)

  8. You look amazing!!!! LOVE your boots!!!!! I'm with Catie bug :) Who makes your boots?????
    It's kinda funny....I wear heels almost every day to school. I just feel better; more pulled together. Trust me, your piggies do get used to it!!!!! :D
    Big hugs~
