I admit it! I’m obsessed with Parisian women and their style.  It’s simple, chic, sophisticated, and built with a few core pieces that can be mixed and matched to make an outfit for any occasion.  For me, that’s a winning combination whether hanging at home,  traveling state-side, or packing for Paris.  Now is a great time to start or add to your core (Parisian) wardrobe thanks to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale–last day is August 5th.  Here’s my quick guide to a few key pieces (at great prices) which also can be used as a packing list for your next trip to the City of Lights!
