I bought this dress at Old Navy back in February, and the weather around here has been so cold and rainy that it has just sat in my closet with the tag on.  We actually had a warm, sunny day this weekend; I knew what I had to wear.

The B. Makowsky sandals are new, I just got them at the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale.  I’d never heard of this brand before, but they are really comfortable, and the leather is really soft.  The sunglasses are Ray Ban, and the purse is Coach.  The necklace is from Claire’s; I bought it back in college, and is the most complemented piece of jewelry I’ve ever had.  Rope bracelet “on loan” from my momma.

The spring weather has been such a tease; sunny but moderate one day, rainy and windy the next.  I am getting very antsy.  I just want to throw on a cute dress and hop on my Vespa!*

I swear on a stack of Girl Scout Handbooks that I will throw this ensemble on as soon as it gets over 77 degrees.

When you live in Paris, you have no choice but to be chic and fashionable.  At least, that’s the impression I’ve gotten from everything I’ve read about the place.  I’ve also read that Americans stick out in an embarrassing way.  Hopefully this outfit won’t get you too many eye rolls Francais.
