I’m all about effortless style but it’s not just how you look, it’s also how you feel. Lately my fave bag to carry is a small crossbody bag. Aside from the fact that they’re really cute (they are!), but they’re also so convenient! Large enough to carry essentials (phone, ID, money, make-up), a small size crossbody is lightweight and gives you the freedom to move handsfree without fussing with a bag. Love that!
Earlier this fall I was in Paris for fashion week (check out some of my posts here, here, and here). Walking around the neighborhood of my hotel in St. Germain des Prés, I couldn’t help but notice, as usual, how chic the women looked. I know this can sound cliché but at least from what I’ve experienced, Parisian chic is real! This time though, they all seemed to have one accessory in common… a crossbody bag. Of course, I mostly saw the small classic Céline box bag (I was in Paris after all…), but that may be because I have ‘eyes’ for that bag. Regardless, it was the overall look that caught my attention. A minimal/sophisticated outfit was topped with a moto jacket or blazer (it was a little cold) and a small crossbody. The style looked confident, understated and easy…in other words, effortless.
Full disclosure, I also admired this look, because it is “my” look or so I like to believe… 😉 My primary bag I used for Paris Fashion Week was my small Valentino crossbody bag. So practical when rushing between shows/events and/or when lugging around my heavy camera!

I love white shoes in the fall/winter so I especially love that they’re totally on-trend this season. Love the look of these white booties, and they are so comfortable… 🙂 Not many sizes left of this style, but here are some other ones to consider:
Also love white pumps, especially in the winter!
This is another crossbody bag look I love. If you’re still considering an over-the-knee boot for this season, get it now before your fave is gone or it’s spring! Love this one for its more sensible block heel.
