A Hot Flash of Outfits For Summer Weather
With red hot temperatures on the rise this summer we all need the perfect sweat-proof outfit that’s going to be perfect for chilling out and cooling down.
Being an autumn baby who lived almost my whole life in Ireland, coming up with summer outfits that are both comfortable and cool can be an impossible task at times, especially because I’m not used to having to go about my everyday life while sweltering under the extreme heat. It’s only really now after two years living in France that I’m getting used to dressing comfortably under the blazing hot sun so for today’s post I came up with three summer outfits that are perfect for staying stylish no matter how high the thermometer may be.
A Week of Parisian Outfits
It’s funny how the more time I spend in Paris the more people back home in Ireland comment on how french my look is becoming.
While I certainly don’t make any conscious effort to dress like a french girl, there are certain fashion rules that apply to Paris and that I have adopted in my look. Stepping out onto the streets here can feel nothing short of stepping out onto a movie set. The buildings that surround the cobblestones and arcades here are famous for being among the most beautiful architecture structures in the world, in the springtime the florists pay extra attention to put their most colourful flowers on display at their doorsteps and if you go out at the right time of day, the cafes and boulangeries greet your nostrils with the fresh smell of bread and hot coffee; but above all the city is home to many of the top fashion brands that the world has ever known from haute couture to prêt-à-porter. In a city as copious in culture as Paris it can often feel like many of the girls here dress accordingly to their heritage. Also when life gives you a movie set why wouldn’t you dress like a movie star?
When it comes to my own personal style, I’m all about attitude and self expression which is why often on our blog you’ll catch me wearing a lot of outfits that raise some eyebrows. However I can’t deny that living in Paris and absorbing the French culture has definitely had a heavy impact on my dress sense and the way I put my outfits together.
For today’s post I thought I would share with you guys some of the latest outfits that I have been loving to strut my stuff in around Paris be it for a casual day with friends or for a romantic date. Let’s begin!
Back in Paris
2019 has just started for me in Paris and today I’m coming at you guys with another outfit that has some serious badass vibes. I guess my newfound style must be a side effect of the new year because whenever I have a lot of things coming my way in life, I always love to dress as fierce as possible so that I can take on new challenges with confidence.
I was so happy that when I was back home in Ireland for the holidays I got to pay a visit to the massive TopShop store on Stephen’s Green. I’m not gonna lie when I say that I’ve been building my wardrobe primarily from TopShop ever since I discovered it in secondary school and it’s a place I miss shopping in a lot since moving to Paris. Today’s outfit is all about two key components of the parisien outfit; simplicity and quality. Let’s begin!
