The last time I wore this jumpsuit was in June on the very first night of my very first visit to Paris with Sam. We were staying at the utterly magnificent Mandarin Oriental Paris, where we were treated to a sunset cocktail hour and one of the best meals I have ever had the pleasure of indulging in. The entire trip was magical, but nothing compares to that very first night.  I don’t think I will ever part ways with this jumpsuit. Every time I even look at it I am flooded with the memories of our trip.

It’s extraordinary how many of my memories are tied up with the clothing I wore at the time. Whenever Sam brings up a past trip or experience I can vividly remember everything I wore down to the accessories. It’s pretty crazy considering I have the worst memory. I can barely remember my wedding date, let alone birthdays, but inexplicably I remember every outfit I have ever posted on this blog and exactly what I did while wearing each outfit. To me this is the true power of fashion and why I continue sharing my personal style on this blog.

If you love fashion and personal style as much as I do, then I urge you to download the Trove app. It’s hands down the best way to shop and discover outfits from your favorite bloggers. To celebrate my partnership with Trove, we’re giving away the exact Chloé bag worn in this post. Go to my Instagram @LateAfternoon to enter the giveaway.

Lately I’ve been drawn to navy as the perfect alternative to black. The color palette is simple yet slightly unexpected, especially if you’re mostly into wearing black but wouldn’t mind branching out just a bit.

Last week’s heat wave got a little intense, so Sam and I ran away to Santa Cruz. It’s a little beach town where Sam grew up and where we eventually met.
We spent 4 blissful days catching up with family and friends while enjoying the slow pace of a beach town.
