Perhaps 'bichon' would be a better title for this post - less confusing anyway, but 'frenchie' sounded cuter and I suppose I'm really thinking more about myself and how putting on black and white with just a pop of red triggers a thought in my mind that now I'm Parisian.

I'm looking forward to a restful weekend, which is looking like it might be chilly and grey, so all the more reason to stay inside bake something.

  3. Posts with Chloe are my favourite :) Also, I totally got where you were coming from with the post title even before you explained it. Admittedly, I know that Parisian style is not at all what we North Americans picture it as but... but... Okay, I'll admit that I often like the idea of Parisian style that we all have, the dream of perfect black and white looks and red lipstick and tulle skirts, better than the reality (which is that everyone has their own sense of style, and because Paris is a city full of regular people, a lot of them don't give a fig about fashion.)

  4. You know I am a Chloe fan - and yes, it totally get the French feel here - I think a scarf would have totally situated you in Champs Elysees! Hope you have a not so cold weekend.

  5. Loving this outfit! The print of the skirt is so fun! And yep, I have a busy weekend, but it will still be fun! Birthday party tomorrow, pumpkin patch and grandmas on Sunday :)

  6. so nice skirt and i like the combo with your heels..

  7. I feel the same way when I put on blue and white stripes with a pop of red. Love the look, the bichon and that bag -- still!

  8. I always love a good Frenchie. Your skirt, necklace, pumps and bag are all beautiful as is that fluffy dog of yours. I need a few dainty necklaces like that which still make a statement! Enjoy the weekend Lydia!

  9. Chloe looks so cute. The picture where you show your heels and the dog is lovely and classy.:)

  10. So classic and chic! Chloe looks perfect with this outfit. :)

  11. Bichon would've been a great title. It's different. You and your little dog look great.

  12. I love black and white with a pop of red and this is a great look. How cute is your dog!

  13. Your polka dot skirt is so cute! And the red heels are a lovely way to add some colour.

    I'm the same, "Parisian" for me makes me think of black white and a bit of red also! :)

  22. I want that skirt! I've been crushing on a similar Kate Spade one and I think I need to take the search to eBay. I haven't stopped thinking about it in months!

    I love that your pup is rocking a black and white collar too!
