When it comes to style, I'm a keen observer of how French women wear it well. And thanks to my French husband, I frequently get to visit that magical place called Paris. It is a place where art, history, fashion and style come together.
Here are my favorite Instagram pics from my recent trip to France. You can follow me on Instagram at coquettenatalie.
Timelessness is everything to me in terms of accessories and I love it when they have a fun twist. This Hermes Kelly bag looks more youthful with its color block update.
Sleek silhouettes are what I go for in what I wear. I also live in ballet flats so those gold-toed black ones are calling my name.
I'm a statement jewelry kind of gal and usually choose one or two pieces to anchor my look. On a visit to the Louvre, I was inspired by these tribal necklaces made B.C. and their wonderful soft pale neutral blue/green/turquoise colors.
My heart belongs to crafts. The French have a huge history in needlepoint and embroidery. I love these stylishly cute embroidered shoes on tote bags.
Artist Yayoi Kusama dots seemed to be everywhere in Paris. You couldn't help but smile at the beautiful polka dots and vibrant colors. So cute to see her life-like statue in the Louis Vuitton Paris flagship.
My new wallet in pomme d' amour (candied red apples). Red is a classic color that I always go to to make a bold fashion statement.
You can also never go wrong with orange. My favorite thing to do is to punch up an outfit with a colorful printed scarf. It's something I always see Parisian women do. Classic and chic.
Speaking of classic and chic, you can also never go wrong with black and white. Coco Chanel showed us this almost a century ago. I always pack a little black dress for my Paris trips because I know it will work perfectly for a dinner out. For fall, I love the return of the skirt, especially for dressy occasions.
I always have a soft spot for pink and yellow. I love vintage style and sheath dresses are an easy staple to throw on when you want to get dressed quickly.
I saw so many French women carrying different sizes and colors of this sequined canvas tote both in Paris and Bordeaux. To me a tote bag is an essential and I love that the French make it all the more stylized. I'll need to add this to my collection on my next trip!
