I admit I was late to jump on the navy train… but now I can’t get enough! Similar to the “no white denim after Labor Day” rule that’s been tossed out the window, so has the fear of pairing navy and black together.
I’ll admit, I had to see pieces like this vest that did the initial work for me, but I think when you’re pairing large pieces together (ex: a sweater and denim, a vest and a dress, etc.), they totally work. This vest is a few years old, but I thought it would be a great layering piece in Paris and I loved how it peeked out from underneath my coat. But then again… when you’re standing in front of the Eiffel Tower, doesn’t anything look good!?
This is a great time to stock up on a pretty outerwear piece because almost everything seems to be marked down. Jackpot!

I loved your comments on Monday’s Guide to Paris post. Now I have a few more things to try the next time I visit!
I’m also planning to dedicate a post to my favorite spots in Orange County, as it’s a question I seem to be getting several times a week, so stay tuned for that. Thanks so much for reading and sharing! XO –
