Rue Legouvé

I ran away to Paris for a few days and it really did feel like a sprint the whole time. Three days is just not enough time. Everyone has always said Paris in the fall is the best, and this was my first taste of that. I was greeted with super crisp chilly air and sunny days. Truly the best.

Rue Legouvé is a narrow street around the corner from Holybelly, and I poked in for a few quick shots one morning after pancakes and two rounds of coffee.


I never thought I could pull off mules (open-toed especially), but I wanted to branch out from my usual and try something new. These suede mules were a kind gift from Trademark and I love them. I walked for miles in them and felt ok! The heel is just about 3-inches and chunky without being clunky, so bring it on, cobblestone streets.

This coat is a Max Mara reversible coat, but I prefer it on the camel side – for some reason, the grey side really makes me feel like I'm wearing a bathrobe! Here's a similar style with a much friendlier price point. I like this oversized coat option too, for under $200.

I mentioned in this post I'd be wearing this mockneck with everything, and I literally have been living in it. It's held up just fine after a few washes too.

Ok, back to the grind!


  1. Really lovely look and photos. The sunlight looks lovely, and the mules are great with that coat!

  2. Mules look good on you. Love the coat! How do maxmara coats run in terms of sizes? The length looks good on you, not overwhelming at all.

    1. Maxmara coats actually fit pretty well off the rack -- I think I usually get the smallest size available. My green one that has been on here a few times, I had to get that altered, but this camel one is just as is!

  3. Beautiful shoes, as well as the coat.

  4. The streets around Canal St Martin and Belleville are so pretty and so quiet compared to other parts of Paris, like Le Marais or St Germain! Love these photos and that light!

  5. Coffee in Paris sounds fabulous :)


  6. Loving the coat! So pretty. Have been looking for one and this is beautiful! Lovely photos as always.

  7. You are looking just awesome as always but more stunning in long coat. You pictures you have posted here with us are so wonderful. Thanks for it and keep sharing.

  8. Mules are such a great transition shoe! Gives a nice casual feel to this outfit.
