Travelling to Paris is high up on my bucket list and one fashion trend I adore is classic french girl style. This look is completely inspired by this chic trend and can be worn this fall and again in the spring. Instead of the usual little black ballet flats I switched them up for  these on-trend Sam Edelman horse bit loafers and I added a splash of colour with this red Saint Laurent leather shopping tote bag (check out this more affordable option here). I may not be headed to Paris this fall but that doesn't mean I can't dress like a french girl until I do!

Fall Outfit - Preppy Style

A month into the fall season and the air is finally starting to feel crisp & cool and the leaves are in their full fall foliage. One of my favourite looks for autumn is this classic preppy ensemble. The combination of a Gap cream cable knit sweater under a J.Crew navy puffer vest, with a Burberry camel plaid scarf, brown leather riding boots and dark wash high waisted skinny jeans is the perfect autumn weekend look to head to the local pumpkin patch, go apple picking or stroll through the fallen leaves.

Embroidery Trend
ZARA EMBROIDERED JEANS (similar style here) | CONVERSE SNEAKERS

The sun is shining and the flowers are blossoming - spring is finally here! And if you look at fashion today you are probably noticing that flowers are also popping up on our clothes in the form of intricate embroidery. It is one of the hottest trends in women's fashion and one trend that I am fully on board with. I am especially enamoured with floral embroidery on jeans and tops. It is such a pretty feminine look and there are so many affordable options available to help you incorporate this trend into your wardrobe. These beautiful embroidered jeans from Zara are under $50 and I can't wait to pair them with a white off the shoulder top (like this one from Banana Republic) and my pink Converse sneakers. Shop more embroidered jeans below.

BALLET FLATS | CHANEL PIN (Vintage; similar available here and here) | LIPSTICK (Shade: Creme Cup) | SUNGLASSES (Versace; similar style here)

I love the classic, elegant look of Chanel. To me this look is perfection and reminds me of Audrey Hepburn and Breakfast at Tiffany's... two-toned ballet flats, a vintage gold pin, oversized tortoise shell sunglasses and pale pink lipstick. Chanel pins have seen a boost in popularity in the last few years after Beyonce and Rihanna were spotted wearing multiple Chanel pins on denim jackets. I found my vintage quilted Chanel pin years ago and it's one of my most coveted accessories. I've linked a few similar vintage Chanel pins below. Just like the pins, Chanel ballet flats have also seen a resurgence among top fashion bloggers and fashionistas alike. I love the cream & black two-toned design, but if Chanel flats are out of your budget I found these pointed toe ballet flats (pictured above) for a fraction of the cost. Have a wonderful (elegant) week!

There may only be a week and a half left of summer but someone forgot to tell Mother Nature! The weather is still hot & humid so I am not putting my lightweight linen clothes and sandals away just yet. This white linen sun dress from the Gap has been on heavy rotation all summer long and paired with suede strappy sandals it easily goes from summer to early fall. We often associate suede with the fall season and these sandals are the perfect way to incorporate suede into your early fall wardrobe before the weather cools down.
