Stripes in The Paris Cafe

When I found out I was going to Europe for 5 months everything changed when looking at what I wanted to bring on my trip! I couldn't help but want to buy a few new pieces that fit the European aesthetic that I had in my mind! Yes...I think of my life in movie clips. So naturally when I waltzed into Banana Republic and saw this hot fiery romper I knew that foreign fashion dreams were about to be made! I loved...I mean...LOVED the stripes! They are so bold with these black and burnt orange colors it certainly makes this outfit a show stopper. The structure is super chic yet sexy. I can't wait to wear this romper in the baltic! I'm traveling to Russia during my job as a youth counselor for Norwegian Cruise Line and I can't tell you how many times I've envisioned wearing this romper in front of Saint Basil's Cathedral in Russia or out at a cute little cafe such as this one!

Ya'll one thing I can't get enough of in New York City is all the hole in the wall places that are diamond's in the rough. The day of this shoot we started (Sydney and I) on the Brooklyn Bridge, I was researching restaurants in the area to eat lunch at in between outfits and this cafe popped up! And isn't the outside just out of a French magazine. I mean talk about color coordinating too! It was an absolutely perfect backdrop for this romper giving these pictures an extra bold look. Also this restaurant is soooo good! One of my all time favorite foods is Mac and Cheese and this place has some of the BEST Mac I've ever had! So yummy. I can't wait to take my hubby there when we go back to NYC. I recommend this place for anyone looking for a calm but cute spot to grab lunch after you take a stroll on the bridge. 

Sale Tip: This romper is now in the "women's sale" section online at Banana Republic. Now $80.00 but sure to note that most weeks their sale section is having an additional sale. Usually it's 40% off the sale price making this romper . That's how I can afford this store. I've rarely bought an item full priced here but I shop their sale all the time! Or shop their sales on full priced items as well. 

Note: I wore the same BCBG sandal clogs below but in yellow in a previous post. They're $60 and super comfortable! Love these! 

Outfit Details: Striped Belted Romper from Banana Republic and burnt orange pumps (no longer online) also from Banana. I did get these heels on clearance for $20. For those of you who want shoe choices check out the ones I featured below for some affordable options similar to what I'm wearing!
