What I Wore: Floral Jumpsuit – c/o Fashion Union, Necklace – c/o Links of London, Sliders – New Look
After the heat of our first day in Paris, we took to exploring the city as best we could. Day two was spent wandering the streets of Le Marais, a neighbourhood containing Victor Hugo’s home (Les Mis fans will know this man!) and close by to the Notre Dame. Our time was dedicated to swooning over vintage boutiques (with price tags I couldn’t quite afford) and admiring wonderfully-scented food popups courtesy of the Jewish quarter.
It might have been a little too hot for an all-over number, but this floral jumpsuit from Fashion Union felt right at home in Paris. And because walking around lots in summer means getting away with wearing shoes so comfortable they’re more suited to indoors, these sliders more or less stayed on my feet (or were packed cleverly in my bag for later). But just in case this outfit started looking unusually casual, in steps my Links of London necklace! From their Effervescence collection, the necklace has small silver bubbles along the chain, which won me over in seconds- tiny bubbles on a necklace? Too cute! x
P.S. I announced the winner of my Jarlo giveaway on Twitter yesterday, thank you to everyone who entered!
What I Wore: Lace Top – c/o Glamorous, Shorts – Beyond Retro, Bag – c/o New Look, Shoes – Bertie, Sunglasses – ASOS, Watch – Olivia Burton
Okay okay, so I’m not wearing delicate French lace, nor am I prancing around in a Parisian fairytale (with oven-baked baguettes everywhere, obviously) but I am wearing my new Glamorous lace top in Paris, that’s basically the same thing! …Maybe not, but it was the only thing I could bear to wear on our first day in Paris, which just so happened to be the hottest day of our trip! I visited for five days with my mother and sister last weekend, and have been in a cheese-induced lull ever since (for real).
Cream and white aren’t necessarily the best of friends when it comes to outfit combos, but with a barely-there top I didn’t think much of the off-tone white accessories, especially not since I’ve been using my handy backpack-style New Look bag daily for work. We spent the first day in Paris getting to know our neighbourhood better, and with it being located in the steep Abbesses district (where the Moulin Rouge and Sacré-Cœur are), everywhere you turned there were amazing views of the rest of Paris, like the lucky spot I found to take a breather and shoot a few outfit snaps!
Don’t forget, you can still enter my Jarlo giveaway, open til Friday 18th! x
Dress – c/o Jarlo, Floral Headpiece – LouLou Loves You (similar here), Shoes – ASOS
You might find it hard to believe, but the location for my third and final shoot with the wonderful Amber was literally a stone’s throw from Lancaster Gate station, in Kensington Gardens! The gardens are so beautiful, and so well hidden from the buzz of the cars and throngs of people just outside. Amber suggested this place once I’d told her about my new Jarlo dress, and it’s the most perfect place to wear it. The dress has a figure-hugging fit with a high neck and enough material in the skirt that made me want to swish about like a princess- or at least try to with my (very high) heels on…!
And if you like the dress and fancy it for yourself, you’re in luck because I’m giving one away! All you have to do to enter is follow me over on Twitter and comment on this post. I’ll pick someone at random next Friday and will make sure your dress is on its way to you ASAP, hurrah! : ) x
Thank you Amber for the photos!
