An Outfit a Day

Okay ladies... I have TEN minutes to do this post and I'm out the door.  I find it so difficult to reenter my life after being in Paris.  Still adjusting, but wanted to do a quick post.

For some reason... I decided this year to have Scott take a picture of my outfit for each day.  I was thinking that if someone hasn't been to Paris, and they are planning a trip, I wanted them to know they don't have to invest a lot of money in new clothes... unless of course, they want to... in that case... go for it!

I almost always dress in solid, dark colors or white.  Not sure why.  I like to fade into the background.  I always felt appropriate everywhere we went, but then again, we don't hang out in the fancy places :)

So... I feel a little silly now, but without time to plan a lovely post, this will have to do.  I'm already down to 7 minutes!

I knew this wasn't the most flattering, but I love this vest and it was warm!

Scarf... 5€ on the corner.

I swear this was crisp and ironed at the beginning of the day.
This was flea market day.

If you click on the pic you can see these cute flats I bought. 
Everyone wears flats in Paris!

And here we have... drum roll... the Leopard coat!

So... as you can see... only on the LAST day did I take a risk.  I guess Fashion Week and the shop windows got to me.

Will blog again soon.

P.S.  I'm not MaiTai that's for sure! Her way of dressing is my dream!

Oh my gosh, is that the leopard coat you got? It's stunning. Love the use of scarves and fitted long sleeve shirts. This was a great idea for a post!

and you look perfectly lovely in each and
every shot.

love the new coat!

Cute! Love all your "Looks". Your scarves work!

Do we get to see Scott's "Looks" next?

The "what to wear" question is hard for a lot of us.

How to get to Paris every year is even harder!

You will get Scott's Looks when I do the Dior fashion show post... remember... "beige!"

Will keep the others in suspense until the time comes.

OH MAN! I love that coat! Though you look fab in each photo - that coat rocks!
Get really daring and wear the green scarf with it... at least that is what I would do!

What a good idea to take photos of each outfit!

Patricia said...

Teri, your outfits are just lovely, especially the stunning leopard coat. However, I am also interested in your apartment - it looks lovely!!

Cathi said...

Love all the looks and the leopard coat is fabulous!! xxoo :)

You look fashionable and chic. I bet you blended right in. Your flats are wonderful, and I am glad that in the last few years there has been a better selection.

Wish they would stay 'in' because they are so practical.

I think you look FABULOUS!!! You have such a way with scarves! I prefer your look over Mai Tai's even though she looks stunning, too! I feel so short in flats. You pull it off really well. Love this blog!

A Tale of Two Cities said...

You were definitely very "a la mode" with your scarves, your French basket bag, your flats, and that "wow-factor" coat.

Well done!

Diane said...

Teri, You look amazing in all your looks, but your LEOPARD Coat look is my favorite!!! (I bought a leopard trench coat last year, but somehow it doesn't have the same appeal as yours. It might have something to do with the one wearing it -- You wear yours very well, my dear.)

Can't wait for Scott's photos :)

I can't wait for it to get cold so that you can wear that coat.
