Let’s start here, just for the sake of art. We saw 2 exhibits of this artist when we were in Paris – there was 1 small room in the Centre Pompidou, and then a much larger exhibit in the Musee Cernuschi (which is just outside of the Parc de Monceau, and is well worth the search!).

Even just bringing the scarf into existing outfits gives a much more “cool weather” feel…
As always, this is a pretty neat way to pull together a travel wardrobe – start with a dozen of your core, stand-by, always important neutrals, and add literally a handful of accents!
