Shopping for a Parisian Holiday

When I found out we were going to Paris in the spring one of the first things I thought of was shopping! I need new clothes! I have to look Parisian! :) (Any excuse to shop, right?). Well my husband knows me well because when he gifted me with a vintage map of Paris for Christmas he also included a special note with a French phrase scribbled on it. I discovered the note said that I had an allotted amount of money to spend on a shopping spree for Paris. I was so so ecstatic and began my search for a few little outfits to wear while roaming the streets of Montmarte, Champs-Elysees, and along the Seine. I collected an inspiration board of different looks I loved and kept an eye out for similar styles when browsing online. I thought I would share some of my Parisian style inspiration with you because what girl doesn't love pretty, feminine, adorable things?

My black sunglasses either broke or got lost last summer so I scored some new over-sized ones from Target. They have such a great selection this season! 

I've loved espadrille lace-up sandals for awhile now but hadn't ever purchased any. These beauties were one of the first things on my list! Here is a picture of two of my favorite fashion icons sporting them.

I knew I wanted at least one special dress to wear on a little photo shoot we have planned or out on a
nice dinner date and I loved these numbers. Simple, classic, and minimal but with an element of surprise.


Here are a few more looks I loved and have incorporated into some 
items I've purchased for our European adventure.

Some of my favorite shops to find clothing for Paris or to browse for inspiration are...

J Crew 
Urban Outfitters 

I picked up this classic little beauty from H&M just the other day...


I hope you lovelies enjoyed browsing my Parisian inspiration board. If you have some favorite stores or lines of clothing than I'd love to hear! My friend Christina just introduced me to Maison Jules, a Parisian street-style inspired women's clothing line from Macy's. They have some very cute outfits and their Instagram is fun to browse! 

Have a fabulous Thursday! 

Inspiration photos were taken from Pinterest. All other photos are my own.
