It’s been a long time since I actually went outside in Paris to take some photos of the city I love. No matter where I go here, every photo turns out to look like the backdrop of a movie poster in the cinema and it feels amazing being able to appreciate that again.
Something I can never get enough of about the city is the thrift stores here. Two months ago we found this fluffy white coat in a vintage store and I’ve been smitten with it ever since. It’s so soft and so stylish. It makes me feel like both an ice princess and a girl in a hip hop music video at the same time and if that’s not a mood then I don’t know what is.
The Place Vendôme is one of the most expensive areas in Paris. It’s a luxury fashion hub and people from all over the world come here to visit the haute couture fashion houses and to buy rare jewels from them. If ever you’re lucky enough to afford diamonds from the most exclusive luxury brands, this is the place to go to.
At Christmas every year the decorations here are always stunning and the glimmering lights on the trees always reflect the glittering gold jewellery and diamonds that you’ll find in the window displays.
Anyway here is my outfit…
An Autumn Outfit of the Day Shot in a Graveyard
Halloween may be over for another year but my obsession with the colour orange certainly isn’t. Even the makeup I’ve been wearing all month has been bright orange!
Basically the Same Pair of Jeans 3 Different Ways
When I was shooting the outfits for this blogpost I unintentionally managed to wear the exact same pair of jeans in all three of my outfits…but can you really blame me? Light wash jeans are just so versatile for summer so for today’s post I’m going to show you three different looks I’ve been loving for this late summer weather.
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.
Class of PrettyLittleThing
Summer is here which means that the time for champagne and celebrations during warm nights has arrived. For today’s post I teamed up with PrettyLittleThing to show you some amazing occasion wear that is perfect for weddings, classy soirées and also graduations. Their graduation store has so many beautiful dresses to choose from and I couldn’t be more thrilled to show you guys a few of my favourites.
Graduation is unfortunately not celebrated in France and it’s something that now, living away from Ireland I’m pretty sad to be missing out on. The way it works here is that you get your degree in the mail and that’s that. There’s no big celebration where we wear the robe, the hats and do the photographs while holding the degree but that doesn’t mean that we should skip out on the chance to dress up every now and again!
Life in Paris as a Local
There is so much to do and so many things to see in Paris but what do you do once you’ve already seen the Champs Elysées, The Louvre and the Eiffel Tower a thousand times? In today’s post I thought I would take you with me on this very normal day in my life in Paris.
