J’ai pas vingt ans

Hi. How is everyone today? The other day, I wore a dress. It had a high-low hemline. Also, I did not wake up this morning and suddenly know how to speak French. I just named this post after one of my very favorite songs by one of my very favorite artists. (Crazy enough, our driver in Paris on our honeymoon, babysat her as a kid! He was floored that I knew of her and liked her so much, since she’s not well known here in the U.S.)

    As soon as I saw this post title I knew you were talking about Alizée, I love love love her. Now I know why I love your blog so much, you must be my bff in another life or something. What a great coincidence to have met her old babysitter in Paris. Awesome!

    My half of a year of French back in high school was far too long ago so I’ll just have to nod my head and pretend I understand… lol
    And you gave us a French song, and I’ll counter with a classic Rod Stewart tune, because “You Wear it Well”! In fact, you look fabulous!

    I must say that Chanel bag looks awesome with every outfit you’ve been wearing it in!

    There’s something about a chanel bag and black tights that can instantly turn an outfit Parisian! Such a great investment bag, it looks so versatile in all the outfits you’ve carried it in lately!

      Clearly I was feeling very “homesick” for Paris here–and it totally wasn’t thought out! I’m glad to hear that you like the bag–some people just can’t understand. 😉 I don’t know if that makes me wear it even more, admittedly, to drive down the cost-per-wear….haha

    I have recently seen another fashion blogger friend of mine wearing similar booties (hers had gold studs on heel). As a rule I don’t like booties as I think the can cut your leg and ruin your line. However, the way that you (and she) styled them with a black tight is superb. Ultra cute and it looks like the are easy to move it too!

      Thanks Shelley! Yeah with tights is the only way I can wear ankle boots with these ‘cankles’!

    Hi. First let me say love you’re blog. I want to offer unsolicited advice on you’re hair. Girlfriends helping each other out. You’re hair looks very fine. Just like me used to be. I use Wen lavender shampoo. It has made all the difference. I no longer need ANY thicking products. I just use a root lifter. Very impressed that you are a resident physician. And find time to blog.

    • 04.09.2013 / 4:36 pm

      I’ve heard a lot. About Wen shampoo but it seems a bit expensive…not that I can say I haven’t purchased expensive shampoo. I will definitely look into it! Thanks for the advice.

    I just cannot believe you just tweeted “Leave me a comment, I’m bored and will be replying shortly!”. Do you realize how, egocentric that sounds? First of all, a “leave me a comment” plea on twitter is the equivalent of a desperate “FOLLOW ME”. Secondly, I hope you grace my comment with the presence of your reply because you’re “bored”. Hey, when I’m bored, I read your blog because I have nothing. better. to. do. 🙂

    • 04.09.2013 / 4:34 pm

      I’m sorry you felt that way. I’m glad to have you as my reader and hope you’ll understand that it was in no way meant as a plea by any means. Thank you for the time it took you to comment on my blog. Have a great day!

      Sit down Jess and relax.
      Now slowly and evenly take in a deep breath, hold for a second, and then let it out slowly and evenly.
      Do this for a couple of minutes and you’ll feel fine 🙂

    You look gorgeous! I’m loving the new cut in all of your photos lately! I have a high-low hem dress in a maxi, but if been afraid to try it shorter! You are inspiring me to step outside of the box a bit (love the belt too).

    I have that dress in a greenish hue and love it! I want to wear it all the time! Seeing this neutral (my go-to) on you makes me want to head on back to H&M to find more colors so I can!

    • 04.11.2013 / 8:41 pm

      Ooh green, I didn’t see that in my store! Tweet me a pic of you wearing it, I’d love to see the other colors it comes in!

  11. 04.11.2013 / 8:38 pm

    I love the dress and belt! And well of course your bag 🙂 it is gorgeous!

    I really like this look on you. Especially with the tights. Somehow the tights just ground and bring all of the different accessories together. Hey Kristina I just would like to say that you are one of the few bloggers that I have seen that works extremely hard at building your community. I know how much you read your comments and take to heart what people say. With that being said you are nothing but a class act for how you handled that rude comment. I have to say of late some of the comment threads on the blogs I follow have really turned me off from commenting in general. Just keep up the good work with the blog you continue to impress me with how much time and effort you put into it.

    • 04.12.2013 / 6:01 am

      Wow Asia thank you so much. Your comment warms my heart. It’s for people like you that I keep doing this!

    I really love how the look is so simple, yet really gives off a huge sense of style. I think all of the black accessories really pop on the beige dress. Probably my favorite part of the outfit is the stud-bracelet (is it actually a watch? if so even cooler!). There is just an unreal amount of personality in the look!
