The last of my photos from my Paris trip in May and this time I’m posing near another tourist hotspot, the very pretty Place des Vosges. Essentially this is a park, with many water fountains, lots of lovely trees, a statue and gorgeous tall iron railings all the way round. I remembered this park as being fairly quiet, but it’s definitely not on a Saturday when the sun’s out!
Continuing the theme from part 1 of these posts, this is another example of staying comfortable while doing lots of walking around and generally being a tourist. Here I owe my thanks to a stretchy tube skirt, a pretty but again stretchy cotton cardigan and the comfy leather flats that saw me through the whole holiday. Clarks are a good idea if you want cushioned flat shoes that are going to let your feet breathe. Go for leather styles and whatever you do, make sure you break them in pre-holiday (carry blister plasters on all city breaks just in case)!

A denim jacket helped to keep this outfit casual while adding an extra layer of warmth and wasn’t a problem to fit into my suitcase as a second coat option… And I couldn’t resist adding a belt to help cinch in a waist that wasn’t particularly well defined, encased in all that stretchy material!
