Anyone remember I spent my birthday in a certain famous theme park in Paris a few weeks ago? That’s not all folks, I also did some token posing by the Eiffel Tower (of course).
I think when you’re in Paris, it doesn’t hurt to dress a little bit Parisian…
Bag: Oasis (old)
Scarf: Next (old)
Lipstick: Revlon Really Red (get at Boots)
When you’re on a city break and walking miles each day from one tourist spot to another, I always think it’s wise to prioritise comfort over style. But I also think there’s ways to be comfortable and still a little bit stylish – I’m just not the outdoorsy/sportswear kind.
A waterproof trench coat not only looks wonderfully French, but is also great protection if there’s a sudden shower (and boy was there a sudden shower on the first day!). A light-weight jumper dress is a great way to look ‘put together’, be warm enough in the breezy European Spring weather and eat many, many crepes without form-fitting restriction (I’ve thoroughly tested this theory). A headscarf is a good idea as once it’s secure, your hair basically looks exactly like it did first thing, all day long. Doesn’t matter how windy it gets, or if it rains, everything’s nice and hidden. And of course, some flats are sensible, but don’t have to be sportswear to be comfy (just good quality, padded and ideally let your feet breathe).And as you might have guessed from the title of this post, we’re not quite done with Paris yet…
