Outfit of the Day: Parisian Chic

Today I'm downright giddy to be showcasing my new dress from the adorable chic and girly online boutique, Avenle. I recently discovered this boutique and I am in love! All of their clothes are very feminine and chic, with both classic silhouettes and statement pieces. I've been on the lookout for a dress that really allowed me to put together a chic Parisian ensemble (sans all cigarette, but bring all the macarons). Once I saw this adorable dress, complete with lace and ruffle details (and even a bow!), I knew it was the one. All of the details of this dress give it such a feminine air, and despite the multiple patterns and materials, there is a simple quality to this dress. 

Oh and the best news?? It's on sale


I decided to add to my "Parisian Chic" look by accessorizing with black knee high socks and grey Mary Jane heels. I am in love with the knee socks with dresses look! With the weather still being a little chilly in Chicago, knee socks are the perfect way to pull of wearing a dress without freezing.


Of course, what Parisian look would be complete without a large floppy hat and Jackie-O reminiscent sunglasses.


Since the weather in Chicago is still a little chilly, I wanted to pair this dress with my new blush pink trench coat from a local boutique called Akira. I think the blush color is the perfect break up of all of the blacks and greys in the outfit. The pink is still a neutral enough color that it works well, but different enough that it allows for a small "pop" of color.


Now it's time to grab myself some macarons and fresh flowers to complete my Parisian Chic attire.


While we were out taking photos, several passersby stopped and commented on the beautiful detail of my dress! I can't wait to get my next item from Avenle (oh, and there will be plenty!) These adorable beauties are definitely on my wish list: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4
