The January Edit

January Edit
Is it too early to shop for spring? I kept gravitating towards lavenders and yellows originally but decided it's just too soon, at least for me. It's so cold and dreary here in Philly and I doubt we've seen the worst of winter yet. Plus, there are quite a few winter finds I'm still feeling. Think black turtlenecks (shocker), maroon skirts with fun zip details, metallic booties (NEED), a scarf that could essentially be a blanket and a pair of chunky black boots and, of course, I can' forget a pair of racer striped riding pants (that are on super sale!!) and a striped turtleneck tee. I found myself inspired from a trip to Paris that I took in January 2017 for this edit. I've been to Paris during just about every season but there's something so quiet and magical about it in the middle of winter.  Maybe it's because the first time I ever went to Paris was in February with my boyfriend, Derek, for "spring" break. (Yes, spring break was in February). I could just imagine myself - walking around Marais in the maroon skirt below, an oversized sweater and the chunky boots with a pair of sheer tights, heading out to a cafe to catch up on reading and sip a cafĂ© au lait and indulging on a buttery croissant. A girl can dream, right? What are you feeling inspired by this month?

PS: Speaking of Paris, look out for a post on Versailles this Friday!

PS x2: The Paris photos are from this post.


  1. I recognize that January is not an inspirational month for me. I'm always inspired in spring and in fall. But, I've been loving lately colorful suits, tweed and everything that is pink. Wonderful post, thanks for sharing it! xo

  3. Its never to early to shop for spring clothes.

  4. Love this inspiration! Always so great to be inspired by a city that you have fallen in love with.

  5. I keep trying to predict the weather, but I don't do a very good job at it haha. Now that the holidays are over, it feels like winter should soon be over, but from past experience, winter weather can drag onto May :o so I'm also predicting that we haven't seen the worst of winter yet haha. Love the racer stripe pants! When I think of Parisian inspired clothing, my first thought goes to Sezane. I don't own anything from them though! (Yet!) -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
