The Great Escape

The Great Escape: Patrick Watson
There's no denying it, I'm a classic kind of girl; I love love love timeless pieces. I feel most comfortable in the classic items that my mum (and possibly grandma) would have worn. A trench and a brocade scarf fall into this gorgeous category. So, on my day off this week, between packing, calling hotels and washing many (many!) loads of laundry, I snuggled up in my cozy camel trench and felt completely at home. 
Camel Coat: Le Chateau, Brocade Scarf: Smart Set, Beige Sweater: J Crew, Black Jeans: Gap, Nude Heels: Aldo
And with that... here I go! I have my whirlwind trip ahead of me, I'll try to stay in touch (I'd miss you all too much!)  and I have a few posts lined up. Also, if anyone knows any good French sentences for me, please comment, I need all the help I can get!
Au Revoir! 


  1. Ah! I disappeared into the blogging abyss for a week and missed so many of your posts!
    I am loving all your looks (as usual) but especially like this one! I'd have to agree that I am definitely more of a classic girl at heart and in your camel coat and scarf you look so chic and ready for Paris!!!
