Outfit: Village Life


Lately, I’ve become a huge fan of Mode and the City, an impossibly chic lifestyle and fashion blog based in France.  It’s run by a lovely young woman known only as Daphne, and while I can’t read what she writes, I can definitely admire her style!  It’s exactly what I’ve always imagined Parisian style to be–simple, chic, perfectly tailored, and classic.

DSC_0149 I wanted to incorporate some of those design elements into my outfit today, but do it in the Mox and Socks way.  I can’t see Daphne wearing a fuzzy blue sweater covered in hearts (and dog hair…), but I certainly can envision her in cigarette jeans with a ribbon in her hair!



What are some of your favorite blogs?  I’d love to check them out!

Coat: London Fog (sold out)

  1. Oh my gosh…I LOVE Mode and The City soooo much! I am always so inpired by every one of her posts (I can actually translate her posts into English on my computer). I must say that this post definitely exudes the look and feel of Mode and The City….great job!
    The Clothes Horse is another one of my ALL time favorite blogs!

  3. This photo set is so gorgeous — you found the most perfect backdrop for this adorable outfit! I love the ribbon, and the fuzzy sweater. Strings of lights like those are one of the prettiest things, too.


I'd love to hear from you!
