Parisian Outfit Inspiration With Maison Jules

Outfit Details: Maison Jules Sleeveless Maxi Dress, JCrew Red Strappy Sandals (similar style in black and nude), Rocksbox Bracelet & Layered Ring, Gucci Bag

What's the secret to looking effortlessly and incredibly chic? Channeling your inner Parisian girl, of course. The truth is, French women do it best and it's because they focus on the finer details. Even if the item is not expensive, they tune into quality. French women have also mastered dressing for their body type. Their style is feminine and never excessive. As a result of all of this, their overall appearance is seamless and sophisticated. It's a style that we all long to achieve (and some of us obsess over, ahem...me)!

A few weeks ago I was in search for the perfect rehearsal dinner dress for a friend's wedding. I spent hours going in and out of each store in the mall and was certain I was going to leave empty-handed, until I decided to quickly browse Macy's dress department. Which, I am so happy I decided to do because I discovered this Maison Jules heart-printed midi dress. It combines all the elements I love in a dress- a feminine print, a fitted top, and a loose pleated bottom. After doing a little research about the brand when I got home, I discovered the influence behind their designs is Parisian street style. Which perfectly explains why I adore their collection so much! 

Maison Jules is exclusively available at Macy's and all their styles are budget-friendly (another win). The midi dress I'm wearing above is now on sale for $54. I purchased it for $80 because I was too love-struck and couldn't rationalize leaving the store without it. Now, I'm kicking myself for not waiting a few weeks for the discount.

Happy shopping!
