25% Off Paris-Inspired Fall Essentials / by Alaina @ Live Creating Yourself

My recent trip to Paris confirmed one thing... everything I packed last fall worked again this year. With the exception of two new fall trends, slouchy pants and fancy sneakers (preferably Nike), Parisians are still rocking the black and white, classic silhouettes. I actually also noticed the men seem a bit more put together and accessorized while the women look extremely casual. More of a thrown-together look complete with messy hair and little make-up.


Fortunately for all of us, J.Crew does a pretty great job of designing these basics worth investing in and right now everything is 25% off with code #TGIFALL. So here's a list of my Paris-inspired 2014 Fall Fashion Essentials. And I'll be sharing photos from my trip this week and next! Stay tuned!


the accessories:
a great hat
a simple catch-all tote
barrette to pull your hair back
chunky jewelry to jazz up your simple clothes like this necklace and bracelet
hints of leopard like a belt and a scarf 

the clothes:
collarless coat
sexy silk blouse to go with everything
classic white button-down
