A few years ago I wouldn’t be caught dead in brown and a few months ago I couldn’t live without a wrist full of bangles … but so much has changed since then and my style has evolved along with it. So when I needed a new coat to handle the NY chill (especially since I walk everywhere), I choose a fawn pallet which is coincidentally the same scheme as the four-leg French Man in my life: my frenchie, Sir Waffles!
peplum: h&m // turtleneck: j.crew // basic leggings // Bag: Coach // Sunnies: Karen Walkers (black) // Jewels: Threads // Boots: Bacio 61 // Socks: Zara // Pup: sorry, not for sale :]
I’m an Arizona native, so besides for the few trips to Wyoming over the years to visit family, I’ve never needed a really good coat … until I moved to NY. When I first stepped foot in the big apple early last year, I picked up a puffier coat for rainy/snowy days but I’ve found myself dreading pulling that giant monster of a coat on in the morning and in need of something classic, chic and most of all warm! So after a week of online shopping and a day store hopping in Flat iron and Soho, I think I found the perfect coat.

I love paris in the rain

a little summer shower calls for bold stripes, a pop of color and spending the day with a hansom frenchman. 

 bubble umbrellas are perfect for nyc! i first fell in love with them on an episode of gossip girl and have been obsessed ever since! you can cover your head completely while still being able to see where you’re going! and there are closer and therefore less obnoxious for sharing the sidewalk. 
peter pan collars were all the rage last fall, and even this spring! If you picked up one of these darling blouses, try layering it under your favorite dress for a pretty Parisian look!

incase you didn’t know, i took this post title from the lyrics in this long. beware, it’s very catchy and i sing it all day everyday every time it even sprinkles!

todays outfit is a homage to waffles as i step out in my favorite new frenchie top

this top is fairly casual, so i keep it low key with a comfy skirt && a layering long sleeve. i gave myself the heigh i so desperately need with black booties (if you’re short pair booties with black tights or leggings to elongate your legs, otherwise they can chop you up).
i kept it courtney by piling on the pearls (are you surprised?) && chincing with a black bow belt! oh yeah && waffles strutted his stuff in his signature “w” pin.
