Very bien. That’s how I feel about the sneakers-with-everything trend I’ve been seeing in Paris! My friends Katie and Maraget Anne, who are both au-pairs here, had posted a few pictures sporting the style and made it look so cute that I knew I needed to try it.

I’d seen these New Balance kicks in J.Crew catalogues over the past year or so, but had never been brave enough to try them out until outfit planning for this trip! The second I slipped them on? Sold. Y’all, they’re dangerously comfortable. I don’t think I’ll ever take them off!

Another “very bien” thing I’m loving lately? This Barrington laptop case! Wanted to put it on your radar, as it makes an incredible Christmas gift. Everyone has use for one (I loved using mine for the flight the other day!) and Barrington gives you the opportunity to customize it in a million ways for everyone on your list!

Love from Paris,


Join in on the fun!


  1. How cute is that laptop case!! I’m loving the sneaker trend too, I’m actually wearing it today! It’s so easy and effortless, so an A+ in my book:) Thanks for sharing Kate!

    Love this look, Kate! It’s very casual chic. I could easily see myself wearing something like this to study in when I want to look put together but also be comfortable. Have a great weekend!
