If you follow me on Instagram or twitter you may know that I recently went to Paris. I had been wanting to visit ‘The City of Love’ for so long so it was the most perfect 21st birthday present from my parents. (Thank you, thank you, thank you!) As you can probably imagine, I took so many photographs. (I also took quite a bit of video footage but that’s a story for another day…) I have a lot of Parisian blog posts up my sleeve – think travel, food and fashion – and I can’t wait to publish them in my little corner of the internet. Here is the first, enjoy!
One of the things that I love about Paris is the fashion. I feel that the Parisian style is sophisticated, effortless and extremely timeless. It is the kind of place where you could live simply in your wardrobe staples. Pair of jeans, a white shirt, a trench coat and you’re good to go!
One of my go to pieces for between-the-season weather is my trench coat.
I actually purchased it from eBay.
A Zara trench coat for £10? I think that’s a pretty good find.
I love how versatile they are. You can literally pair them with anything and they look good! You can wear them open and loose, like I have done here, or buttoned up with the cord pulled tight which creates a different look entirely.
Underneath my coat I am wearing a polo neck top from Next. I absolutely love this piece. It is so tailored and makes even a pair of jeans look sophisticated.
Over this I am wearing a dress that I purchased from Carrie (WishWishWish) at The Bloggers’ Market back in January. Made entirely from velvet, it was such gorgeous addition to my wardrobe. I love it. Thank you!
Throw on a pair of sunglasses (for that extra sophisticated Parisian vibe… yes I know the sky is grey but shhh) and my favourite ever River Island boots and my outfit is complete.
