Two Ways: A Parisian Inspired Look for Work

May 16, 2022

Parisian street style influencers are some of my favorite accounts to follow on Instagram.  Today’s look comes from one of those accounts, and features a floral skirt look styled for weekend and work.  Let’s have a look.

This floral-skirted look comes from @leasy_inparis.  And it’s so easy to remake it for work and weekend.

For the Street // This look is perfect for brunch, for church, for casual work, or for a dinner with family.  And recreating it starts with a great skirt like this floral choice from Amazon.  The slinky skirt it both fitted and flowy for a very feminine look.  And did I mention it costs less than $30.  Need a plus-size option?  Try this skirt from SugarLips.

The sweater used in both looks comes from J.Crew.  It’s a nice staple piece for warm weather.  This Tahari ASL option is an under-$50 option.  Plus-size?   Try this Alfred Dunner number.

To finish the look, you can add the Hermes Oran sandal (like the inspiration) or this more affordable Sam Edelman pair.  I also love this dramatic raffia tote from Wolf & Badger.  And this silver Kendra Scott cuff that makes a subtle statement (also in yellow-and rose-toned metal).

For makeup, I would keep it simple.  I am loving these Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks for easy summer shadows.  Need a drugstore dupe?  Try these Julep pencils.  For the hair, just wear it down in which every style is easiest for you.

For the Office // To twist this look a bit for work, we need a different skirt.  I found this fantastic Rag & Bone skirt, that gives you a subtle floral look that’s still appropriate for work.  Frankly, I love it.

In addition to the short sleeve sweater above, I added this J.Crew Parke Blazer in white to pull it together.  It pairs well with the white flowers in the print.  The skirt runs from 00 to 24.

To finish the look, I love these Linea Paolo Ciana slingbacks.  Prefer flats?  They also make a chic slingback.  I also added a simple ‘raw pecan’ tote bag from Kate Spade, and these stylish pearl drop earrings from Monica Vinader that take pearls to a whole new level.

Style your hair with this look in low updo, I like this sleek updo tutorial.  As for the makeup, I would use a black eye pencil and a rosy lip color to finish off this look, like this French Girl Lip Tint Stick.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
