One more day of work after today!

I am nearly done packing. The only things left are my shoes, pants, and accessories–yay! It’s a great sign. It means I have downsized enough to the point where packing will have taken just an hour or two.

Today, I decided to dress up a little more Parisian Preppy with some gorgeous brown caramel shorts and patent oxfords. I was looking at the forecast for St. Thomas, USVI and it looks like 80 degrees is the temperature across the board with 50% humidity! I am going to be sweaty no matter what I wear probably. If it’s anything like Florida (duh), I’ll be soaked most of the day.

The stripe top is très Français, n’est-ce pas? No wonder it’s a wardrobe staple, most notably in the French sense. The whistle necklace from J.crew is the cherry on top. It brings a fun sporty-casual vibe. The pop of red is from J.crew of Yore just like the oxfords. Now, I wish I was back on the streets of Paris getting lost.

Anybody visit the new J.crew in Paris yet? It’s on my top J.crew location stores to see. Hopefully, one day soon!
