| Neck Duvet . If you are watching my Story these days then you know I've started dating in Paris. One of my dates asked me how I felt about the French scarf culture, he said it was as if they all wore "duvets..." . Neck duvets. Oui! What do I think? Sounds parfait to me! Especially today, it was 9 degrees... . Just one more week and I'm trading in my duvet for a bikini for the holidays...and just the thought of this, and the duvet, make the chill bearable. ___________________________ 📍Paris, France | #paris#parisjetaime#frenchfashion#parisstreetstyle#parisisalwaysagoodidea#babyitscoldoutside .
