Pont des Arts

What I Wore: Dress – c/o Desire (on sale!), Shoes – c/o Vagabond via Zalando, Bag – Vintage 

Finally, the very last post from Paris! The three of us (mother, sister and me) decided we’d spend our Saturday evening in the nicest restaurant we could find, with a three-course meal and an outfit to match. Which explains the slightly fancier-than-usual dress and earrings (I never wear earrings) in this outfit post. I love the detail on the skirt of this Desire dress- a little skin peeking through the lace design makes even this straight-up-and-down dress ever so slightly risqué..!

And typically I took a few photos while out and about by Pont des Arts, the famous love lock bridge. It was more than humbling to walk across the bridge and try to get an idea of just how many locks were on it-  it’s beautiful to see love displayed in such a strikingly visual way. I have seen news stories about there being too many locks on the love lock bridge (eek!), so maybe it might not be the best place to show your love in the coming years, but as it stands, it’s wonderful to see people being so in love to solidify it in this way. Maybe next time we’ll declare our love on more solid ground though, eh? ; ). ‘Til next time Paris! x

 

Disneyland Paris

What I Wore: Top – ASOS, Skirt – c/o Next, Shoes – c/o Next, Minnie Mouse Headband – ASOS (on sale!)

There’s a surprising amount of colour in these photos, but what can you expect from an outfit post all the way from Disneyland Paris; I had to dress for the occasion! You might have spotted the Minnie Mouse headband on ASOS back when the collection launched a few months ago and I’ve had this stored away just waiting for my trip to Paris. It only seemed right to compliment the headband with my favourite white off shoulder top from ASOS and a few new Next-shaped additions to my wardrobe- making sure I stick to my comfort zone of matching and similar colours (hey, I wore a bright orange dress the other day!).

We saw the Princess Parade and I felt like I was 5 years old, watching my favourite Disney films on tape and rewinding it to start it all over again, except none of their shops had a single Pocahontas item- she’s my all-time favourite Disney girl! Stay tuned for my very last post from Paris, and it’s a soppy one ; ) x

Bardot In Paris

What I Wore: Bardot Top – ASOS (similar), Skirt – Topshop (similar), Sandals – c/o Zalando 

Aaand we’re back to Paris! What better place to sport my favourite Bardot-inspired top than in the French capital. This outfit was worn on day three, where my mother, sister and I played typical tourists and visited (aka took selfies with) the Eiffel Tower, and stopped for a sunny rest at the Tuileries Gardens.

For me, baring shoulders makes an outfit so much more somehow, that I felt overdressed in anything but a simple denim skirt. Topped with my sandals-of-the-summer (seriously, they’re the best) from Vagabond and my cat eye sunglasses, I felt like Bardot herself might have liked this getup for a warm Parisian afternoon! x
