My Go-To Casual Outfit

Happy Friday! The weather has cooled down again since last week - it started with high 80s but has now dipped to the low 60s. However, San Francisco bay area is known for it's Indian summers so I hope it warms up a tad bit. It was nice having warm weather, since it made me feel like I'm on summer vacation again.

I want to share one of my go-to casual outfits that I often wear on vacation, but most importantly I also want to share more eye candy of my Paris trip! If you haven't noticed by now, I wear a lot of maxi dresses. I wear them all the time as casual outfits because they are casual chic with a touch of elegance. Check out some of my other posts to find out where you can get budget friendly maxi dresses here and here!

Elegant Black Maxi at Eiffel Tower

Happy first day of Autumn! With the transition into Fall, it got a little bit colder these past couple couple of days around San Francisco and I definitely felt the cool Autumn breeze. It's supposed to get warm again this weekend though, so I hope everyone avoids getting sick with the sudden temperature fluctuation!

In continuation of my trip to France, I wanted to let everyone know that the black maxi dress I wore to the Eiffel Tower is now on sale at Banana Republic with extra 40% off (here)! Also, the Rebecca Minkoff sandals I wore are now on sale, although in a different color (the color I'm wearing is butterscotch). For those who are traveling to warmer places in the winter, these are very comfy and stylish sandals to walk in. They'll also come in handy when Summer rolls around next year!

Chic Romper at Palace of Versailles

Outfit: LOFT off the shoulder black Romper ( here), Soludos Espadrille flats ( here), Brixton Joanna hat ( here), Street Style Shoulder Bag ( here)
Welcome to French royalty! Originally built by Louis XIII as a hunting lodge (as mentioned before, the French LOVE their hunting), it was later enlarged by Louis XIV into a royal palace to be a "showcase" of France. The magnificent garden was my favorite as it was beautifully maintained and I was glad there weren't any restrictions in roaming around because that's exactly what I did! I wore my Soludos espadrille flats again (I wore it on heavy rotation throughout my trip) and a chic modern black romper to offset the French classic architecture. It was a really sunny day and as there were a lot of grounds to cover, so my Brixton Joanna hat came handy to keep my face protected.

Fairytale Loire Valley - Baby Blue Midi Skirt

Outfit: Topshop Midi Skirt (here), Soludos Sandals (here), Ann Taylor cardigan (similar here, extra 40% off), H&M T-shirt (here), Street Level Beige Tote (here)

When I think of fairytales, castles definitely come to mind. A couple weeks ago we went to the Loire Valley, located in central France, and toured Chateau de Chambord and Chateau de Cheverny. They were both breathtaking and felt like I was in a fairytale myself! To dress the part, I wanted something flowy and pastel and this baby blue midi skirt did just the trick (I think I was trying to go for a modern day Cinderella). My princess sandals gave a feminine touch as it wrapped around my ankles, and it was also very comfortable to walk in!
