Forty plus Parisians with a unique signature style. How to transition into spring, April lookbook.

After a winter that has seen everything from snow storms to chilly rain, we are all itching to wear our spring weather clothing. Here we are in the streets of Paris, with some women still wearing their puffer jackets, while others are sporting more of a spring look. I find that 40 + French women are experts at cultivating a unique sense of personal style. So, these women who have effortlessly found a unique signature style seem to have an easier way to transition into spring. The best-dressed women are the self-confident ones who feel good and natural in what they are wearing. They have mastered the balance between dressing for comfort/season and dressing for aesthetics. They know that as long as they are layering properly, they can pack away that down coat which helped them through the winter. They find a way to pair fresh spring pieces with winter friendly staples. I love several looks here. The lavender statement jacket at 1:17 is perfect. It elevates her total look. I equally like the look at 2:17. The trench and the cuissardes (high thigh boots) combo is the most perfect outfit for the season. The lady at 2:52 with her pink sweater, pink scarf and creme coat reflects a perfect classic look...so does the lady at 3:10 in pale blue coat and red loafers. The leather clad lady at 4:10 oozes confidence with her look, proving a woman's confidence and individuality are her best accessories. Would love to hear about the looks you like and dislike and your own spring transitional outfit suggestions. Have a beautiful Sunday.

Spring Summer 2018 trends and styling inspiration. Key looks to have on your radar.

While for most of us the chilly weather still calls for chunky knits, the time has come to take a look at summer 2018 trends and start getting your wardrobe ready for the coming season. When it comes to the preferred spring/summer palette, the trend is bright and saturated hues such as the jumpsuit at 2:05 and the hot pink outfit at 2:25. Love the sheer, skin revealing dresses 2:34 leaving little to the imagination yet done in sophisticated cuts. Perfect for warm summer days. The flared pants are also show stoppers. The inherent fluidity and lightness make them comfortable to wear all day long. Asymmetrical looks are all the rage...and will add edge to any outfit. The yellow easy breezy eyelet detail asymmetrical dress at 3:09 is the most perfect day to evening dress. The pant suit at 3:34 is perfect for a formal event. I only wish I was taller to rock that look. From bright colors to summer dresses, here are some warm-weather-ready looks to inspire your closet this season. Enjoy and have a beautiful day! À Suivre

Chic Parisians on the school run. Mommies, nannies, and more.

The school day in France starts at 8.30 and finishes at 4.30 with a long lunch break. Some schools close on Wednesday afternoons which is when children participate in extra-curricular activities. The front of the schools can get a bit hectic, especially in the mornings when dropping off students and after school when picking up students at the end of the school day. The Parisian parents just like anywhere else, chat with each other and share parenting woes during drop off and pick up times 2:59, 3:35. They know that having good friends in similar circumstances makes things easier when needed. Some mothers with young children come to school with strollers 1:29, 2:30, 4:04 or toddlers in hand 3:56. Others do the school pick up on scooters, 4:44, 5:58. Others who work full-time rely on nannies 1:46, 3:10, 5:59 who are mostly African. A nanny picks the child up from school, assists to household tasks and runs errands like picking up groceries and completing meal prep for dinner time. There are also dads and grand parents 0:35, 0:45, 2:38 involved in this process. It's not uncommon to see moms and dads running towards the gate when they are late 4:21. Now a little bit about the French parenting style. There are a few distinctive differences in technique between parents in France and their American counterparts. Parents in France are in charge. They have authority over their kids. There are rules and boundaries to respect. Catering to children at the expense of family or work is not acceptable. French parents establish clear expectations for what’s appropriate and expected from children in a variety of social situations: eating, greeting friends, behaving in social circumstances. That does not mean children don't have freedom however. French parents are strict about a few key things referred to as the frame, but inside this frame, they give kids as much freedom as they can handle. American parents often find that their weekends are dominated by their kids' activities, like soccer practice, violin lessons, and sleepovers. French parents on the other hand expect their children to comply with their own schedules. This French style of parenting may be hard to appreciate for some Americans (including myself) who are used to make them their children the center of their world. Would love to hear your comments on this topic. Thank you as always and have a wonderful weekend.

Magazines are full of adverts of women in pink outfits and sandals, yet the weather feels like fall. There are certain items every woman should have in her closet during these transitional times and the trench coat is one of them. Made famous by Jackie O, this lightweight coat is the key piece you need during spring and fall.
If you are looking for a classic trench coat, opt for Burberry. The classic Burberry trench coat 4:14 is an investment that will pay off for a lifetime. Even if this trench coat has been playing in the fashion world for several years, it is always fashionable and appealing. This classic coat comes in mid-length and double-row buttoned. The collapsible at the back ensures that the water runs better.
The oversize trench 3:16 is the trend du jour. A fluid silhouette is a shortcut to effortless ease. The Asian model at 1:20 with her slouchy trench over a long skirt and sheer top looks so effortlessly chic. The nude ankle boots are a great choice to complete the look.
For most women, the complement of a contrasting trench is the most perfect finishing touch to transcend a basic outfit 2:56, 2:50, 2:58. When you don't know what to wear, throw on your trench and make your look look spring ready.
The young woman at 1:57 shows you how to style this coat with sportswear. Her look is the ultimate weekend off duty look. Relaxed and casual yet pulled together.
The look I like most is that of the African lady at 4:01.The warm tobacco hue over a white t-shirt is irresistible. The leopard print scarf adds a touch of femininity to the masculine look. Would love to hear which looks you like and dislike. Thank you and have a beautiful day.
