If you read my stories regularly, you'll know I'm a French woman at heart. I've always dreamed of living in Paris ever since I fell in love with the French language and culture back in high school. I'd jump on the Eurostar (from London where I was living) and visit the city regularly, always coming back home with a stack of L'Officiel magazines and a charming find from one of the many vintage stores I frequented. I eventually landed in the City of Angels rather than the City of Lights, but I'm still drawn to the Parisian way of life, especially when it comes to their style. I always favor the nonchalant, effortlessly chic outfit formulas that embody the French-girl aesthetic.
If you love French style as much as I do, I'm sharing some of my favorite effortlessly chic pieces I found, from chic trench coats to ballet flats and slip dresses, that will make you feel like you live in Paris through the simple act of wearing them!
