As you probably know by now, on Monday I leave for Paris (I can hardly believe it myself!). I’m not quite finished packing but I am beyond excited for this trip. One thing my Mom and I plan on doing a lot of is walking. All the tourist books and travel articles I’ve read basically say the same thing, there’s nothing like walking the streets of Paris. So most importantly, whatever I pack needs to be warm, comfortable and chic. I love this plaid skirt, sweater and ankle boots from Talbots because it covers all of that, and is versatile enough to wear different ways during my trip. I absolutely fell in love with this skirt from the moment I saw it, obviously because it’s plaid, but also because it’s classic and at the same time modern, which to me is one of the best thing about Talbots. I was first introduced to the brand years ago by my Great Aunt and Grandmother, but it wasn’t until recently that I really fell in love with the brand. Maybe partly because many of the things I find there remind me so much of my late Great Aunt, but also because there are so many pieces that have that classic feel with a modern twist. These plaid trousers I wore a few weeks ago are a perfect example. When I posted that outfit my cousins and Aunts remarked about how much it reminded them of old family photos of our Grandmother and Great Aunt. There’s something so special about wearing clothes that evoke strong emotions and memories in you. And while the pants nor the skirt were handed down to me, they remind of the style and the women that continue to inspire me.
