A Karen Millen Fall Coat in Jardin des Tuileries: bonjour Paris!
When it comes to coats and jackets, I love Karen Millen, like this wine Karen Millen coat I bought for my trip to Paris last month. Autumn was setting in and the trees were turning from green to dazzling hues of gold, ochre and red. My friend and I took a walk through the Jardin des Tuileries (the public garden located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde) before stopping for lunch at the Café des Marronniers. It was a beautiful day with the sun shining brightly and golden, crisp leaves falling softly from the trees, making a rustling sound beneath our feet, as we continued with our walk through the garden.
The Jardin des Tuileries has been transformed over the centuries from being a private, royal garden to one of the most elegant promenades of Paris today. We were lucky that it was not crowded at all when we visited there, so we could really enjoy the beauty of the place.
I styled my Karen Millen coat with neutral boots also from Karen Millen, Gucci sunglasses and a black Burberry bag. I wore it over a Talbots skirt and a polo-neck sweater from Ralph Lauren.
Autumn is one of my favorite seasons of the year. There is a certain inexplicable feeling in the air that makes me want to pause and go within, and reflect more deeply on life and where it is going. The changing color of leaves in their extraordinary beauty and eventual decay, reminds me of a deeper purpose of life that must exist and give meaning to all other transitory experiences of life. In a certain sense, I slow down and unburden myself to the Universe, while attending to my daily duties, knowing that this is not the ultimate answer.
