When in Paris, designer stores line the streets and nearly everyone has something fabulous on their body or draped over an arm. From the latest Burberry mac to the latest, Valentino handbag and it is slightly depressing (I am not jealous at all, HONEST). A gal has to make the best of what she has; I have the odd designer purchase which is nice to bring a £30 outfit up to an acceptable level in the Paris style stakes.
So I popped down to my fave photo spot at Le Palais Royal and posed till my boyfriend told me he had enough and wanted his own photo. It was a sunny but crisp day and I love this casual outfit, it is a perfect mix of style and comfort with my fave brands. The Zara t-shirt is slightly cropped so it works great with high waisted shorts. My new Lacoste shoes are the perfect shade, a matte, off pink, these on-trend beauties kept me going for over 30,000 steps that day, the cushioned backs were a necessity for that much walking...luxe.
My Michael Kors backpack was not really big enough for a full day of city sightseeing but it kept all my essentials in. I am also building up my jewellery collection at the moment and got this amazing necklace from a Mawi sample sale for £50 and also a few bits from a new brand called Astrid & Miyu they have the prettiest packaging. And oldie but a goodie is Jewellery Box you have probably seen me feature them a few times now and the price and quality is just amazing with prices from £3 you can’t argue. I have also added a bit of bling with my Links of London watch I would never think of them normally for watches but I just love it and its rose gold, hello!
