Bonjour from Paris! We took the train here for a brief visit before heading home for Christmas. Thank you guys for all the thoughtful and detailed London recommendations in the comments of my recent post! If you’re planning a visit, definitely check them out. I can’t wait to share a few pictures from there soon and more info about our lodging, as a few of you have asked.

I always love the classic fashion in both Paris and London. This was my first time visiting during winter, and I noticed a lot fewer puffer jackets compared to the US and more tailored and sleek wool coats. Mostly in darker, neutral shades like black and navy, as well as black mixed with navy which inspired this casual look. While in London, Nick wanted to pop into one of the myriad of Ted Baker stores and I was happy to oblige. He likes that their pieces have timeless silhouettes and just a touch of whimsy, like an unexpected print lining or piping. I ended up trying on several pieces as well, and found a coat that I really loved!

Unfortunately it was one of their pricier coat options (however with current exchange rates, Ted in the UK costs at least 25% less than in the US, so definitely stop by if you’re a fan of the brand and visiting) but it was also the thickest and warmest in a bouclé-textured 100% wool, plus with a gorgeous floral lining and rose gold metal accents. The collar can also be worn two ways – folded down as a wide lapel like how I’m wearing it, or buttoned up across the chest which lends an elegant, military-inspired look.

With my two dresses (see here and here) I have a size 0 and had them taken up by the shoulders. For this coat, a size 0 is a little longer on me which I don’t mind, so the only adjustment needed will be shortening the sleeves (I have them folded under 1 inch). I did snap fitting room photos of their other more signature coat styles and will post in a bit.

As you can see I did a bit of shopping already in Paris – no surprises there! I’ve been taking lots of notes about my experiences (and the price differences) and can’t wait to share about them soon in a Paris shopping roundup!

    Dear Jen,

    You have the most amazing style, I wondered if you could do a closet organization post. I live in a small uptown apartment with very limited real estate and could use some of your incredible insights 🙂

    Thanks!

    I was in London right after Brexit and got the Chanel Classic for about $1100 lower than in the states.

    Nice pics! I think one reason there are less of the "puff" coats is because generally the winters are milder compared to winters in certain US states where one would not be warm enough in a wool coat. I remember when I used to live in NJ I would definitely have to wear "puff" coats in order to not freeze in sub zero temps (especially with wind chill).
