SEPTEMBER! You’ve been so good to me. This month was the best I’ve had in a while because not only was it #NYFW — I went to Paris for the very first time! Okay, well not the first if you count airport layovers I’ve had in the past ;) — but it was indeed my first outside of Charles de Gaulle and man, was I so glad. Paris is everything I’d expected it to be and more — the lights, the ambiance, the food. I cannot wait to go back over and over, because I have a feeling that I’ll be planning my next trip sooner than you’d think. Ahead, here are some purchases I’ve been loving this month, as well as a little recap of Paris at the bottom. Lezzgo!



superdown Alice Off The Shoulder Dress — I gushed about this dress in my latest post but I love it so much it’s made its way into my September faves as well. Honestly, such a one-time piece for only $66 (now on sale for $30!) and I was so impressed with how silky and luxe it looked. The cherry pattern was so cute and out of the box for me, and I don’t know when I’ll wear this again, but man I can’t wait!


Zara Cropped Denim Jacket — Let me just say that a major re-discovery this month for me was remembering how amazing Zara is in Europe. It’s super inexpensive, has about a million options, and I went pretty ham and brought back a bunch of cute stuff for my Fall wardrobe. One of my purchases was this cropped denim jacket that I can’t wait to wear over some chunky sweaters as the weather gets colder.. it’s seriously the perfect transition piece. And it’s timeless, too!



Diamond Headband — I picked this baby up at a shop in Chinatown when I got back from my trip — and it was only $6! I swore I’d never be a headband person, but honestly this one was just too pretty to pass up.


Zara Heeled Leather Square Toe Sandals — Another Zara buy from abroad, these square toe sandals are my new favorite shoe, hands down. They’re super comfortable, go well with anything (from jeans to a cocktail dress), and I’ve worn them almost every day since I bought them. Best purchase on my trip, hands down.

Of course, here’s a little round up of photos from the trip!
