It’s official. I’m a francophile. Ever since going to Paris a year-and-a-half ago, I’ve been obsessed with Parisian style. It’s timeless, classic, but still feminine, fitted, and always beautiful. It’s the style I’ve been searching for all these years. I’m planning to go back to Paris in August and I’m already doing my shopping research, and at the top of the list is Anne Thomas, an accessories store in Le Marais. Not only does the store offer gorgeous, feminine jewelry, but it also showcases a collection of stunning footwear, including these Mimo Boots in Winter Leaf (light brown suede), which sell for $412. You can buy them online here.
I’m heading to Europe this summer for a month, and of course, I’m already getting organized. In addition to researching my trip, I’m also organizing my organizational methods. Try to say that three times fast. At the top of my list is finding the perfect type of purse, something that’s travel friendly, secure, sturdy, and will fit all of my daily essentials. I have the similar cross body black on black confetti purse from Lee Coren, but in more of a clutch style with a thin strap. This Box Crossbody is exactly what I’m looking for. Made of vegan leather, it’s a solid deal for $130. Find it here.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve ended up in a planner’s nightmare: You bought the wrong calendar for the year. Maybe yours is boring. Or it’s a little big ugly. Or it doesn’t inspire you. Or it’s too small. Or you’re sick of the same old turn-the-page calendar with pictures of sunsets. If that’s the case, it’s not too late to do an organizational overhaul, even though January is nearly over. Hey, I feel for you.
My solution? Go for something big. I finally did this year, and it’s paying off in huge ways. This Perennial Wall Calendar from Poketo ($48) is a fill-in-the-date kind of thing and there’s an enormous poster-size page for each month of the year. Attach it to your fridge and you’re good to go.
Not only is it modern and colorful, but there’s room enough for everything you have going on for the month. You’ll never forget to pay your rent again.
