I'm French But Live on the West Coast—Here's What's on My Fall Shopping List

We follow a lot of French women on Instagram, so this is saying a lot, but Claire Most is one of our favorite French women to follow on Instagram. One scroll through her feed and you'll see why, but just to reiterate, she has a cool and casual style that it's impossible to not want to emulate, she's constantly introducing us to new and under-the-radar brands, and don't even get us started on her gorgeous hair and makeup looks.

Most is originally from Paris but moved to Portland, Oregan last year. And while she certainly seems to have adapted to the West Coast lifestyle, she's stayed true to her French-girl roots, regularly mixing classic pieces (like straight-leg jeans, white tank tops, and trenches) with more directional ones and pretty pieces with streetwear. (Oh, and we'd be remiss to not mention her epic sneaker collection). 

Since summer is drawing to a close and we all have fall on the brains, we obviously want to know what stylish women (i.e., Claire Most) have on their shopping lists. She obliged and shared with us a variety of fittingly cool pieces that will make anyone wish for fall to hurry up and get here. Keep scrolling to see what she's shopping for this season and get a glimpse of her cool French-West Coast style.
