There is something just so Parisian about a striped top. Or at least that’s what I like to tell myself, because I long to be one of those impossibly chic ladies rolling around Paris on a bike with a baguette and some flowers in the basket. It’s my fantasy image of myself, and I refuse to let it go. This Billabong sweater sort of makes those dreams a little bit closer to reality, even if I’m still stuck in Los Angeles, miles away from France.
I paired it with my new faux leather skirt from TOBI for something a little bit tougher. Just a little bit – I’m still never going to really command an image of intimidation, but a little leather never hurt nobody. Especially when it’s cruelty-free vegan leather! I win and the animals win too! Win-win.
As a final touch I added my trusty Daniel Wellington watch to make sure I kept all my weekend appointments. I didn’t used to be much of a watch-girl (cell-phone clocks work everywhere) but now I find that I really like them. There’s something so classic about being able to raise your wrist and check the time. So mature! Something about always reaching for an iPhone feels so juvenile to me, and I’m trying to break myself of the habit of always having my phone in my hand.
