Whoops! The week got away from me there.

Coat, vintage.  Jeans, J.Brand. T-shirt, Madewell. Boots, Kenneth Cole. Backpack, vintage. Ray-Bans, vintage.

We had so much fun taking photos this week! I gotta hand photo creds to my friend Sara- she’s a natural. We did a chunk of them in the courtyard of my apartment building, but the best was running around the streets in my neighborhood on a beautiful afternoon.

I love wearing white jeans in the winter. Fashion “rules” be damned- they’re totally antiquated anyway. Wear what you feel. I paired them with this beautiful coat I found thrifting last weekend. Thrifting in Paris deserves its own post (coming soon)- it’s just bananas. I found this beauty amongst dozens of others that were all, at a minimum, a third of what they would cost in New York. I scooped up another one, too,  for another ridiculous bargain.

The backpack is a little treasure I found in my attic a couple years ago. I believe it belonged to my Mom in the eighties, and it is in beautiful condition. But the cherry on top? Those sunglasses. I bought them in London on Portobello Road. They’re a Ray-Ban style called “Firework”, which was discontinued in the sixties, so they were a pretty amazing find. I also got a great deal on them because the arms are a little broken- an easy and cheap fix. They’re so much fun!

An Outfit a Week | The Pursuit of Hippieness

I’ve been keeping things au naturel beauty-wise, save for the occasional swipe of dark red. My curling iron also broke a week after I came here, so rather than spring for a new one I just decided to let things be.
