Is it only me, or does knowing that Paris is only a plane ride away provide a unspeakable amount of comfort. Wanderlust has gotten a firm hold on me, as it does after I get home from all of my trips, and lately I've been longing for the streets of Paris. I still remember only a couple of summers ago admiring the simplicity and elegance that the Parisienne women possessed in their effortless way of dress. Stripes paired with solids, minimal accessories and no-fuss hair and makeup - take me back! Although my outfit channels more of the fairy-tale Paris that I keep in my head, I still love the look of a striped crop top and black swing skirt. After all, what self-respecting Parisienne women would wear a chunky heel with a short skirt? Mon dieu!

Although it's not Paris, I've sought refuge in the tulip-lined paradise of St. James Park in Toronto. I pass this park every day on my way to work, and it always makes me smile. St. James park only gets more beautiful as the season goes on, so if you're in the Toronto area I definitely encourage you to take a visit!
It's no surprise that I love pairing stripes with floral, but there's definitely a spot in my heart reserved for stripes with leopard. I feel as though I say this every time I post this Clare V Leopard Foldover clutch, but it really was such a great purchase that I get so much use out of.
