I’ve always loved fresh starts. Whether it be a blank canvas in the form of a new apartment or a Monday morning, I always feel so inspired and clear-minded when I give myself those clean slates. I did a closet refresh this week (as I do every few months), and instantly felt inspired by the self-reinventing that starts now. Today, I’m choosing to be French! Like the Parisians, I believe that basics are the building blocks of a wardrobe and firmly stand by the mantra, less is more. I will wear flats over heels any day, and I hate getting ready. Thus, I align with their effortless/undone attitude when it comes to getting dressed. Oui oui!

When dressing like the French, there are a few rules to follow. When in doubt, wear black. Less is more. Flats reign supreme. Quality over quantity. 

I’m already getting excited for spring (like clockwork every single new year right when the ball drops at midnight), and am starting to map out what I want to invest in as the weather warms up a bit (you can keep an eye on my S/S Closet board as I add pieces I love here). Although it takes awhile for San Francisco, I like to start transitioning accessories (hello my straw babies, I missed you!) and bookmark the other pieces for future purchases.

I still have yet to meet my *perfect fit” leather jacket. The shape and how it lays needs to be just right and it MUST feel smooth like butter. If you have any recommendations, please send them my way– this is No.01 priority on my shopping list! I came across this one, it seems like the brand gets wonderful reviews… will report back!

I’m excited to bring back these style roundups a bit more this year. It’s a way for me to share what pieces are inspiring me and what are high up on my wish list. Do you enjoy these posts? What do you want to see more of? Let me know in the comments below, ideas/thoughts are always welcome!

Bon shopping! (top ph. by Lucy Williams other two via)
