I knew that the 48 hours Tiffani and I planned to spend in Paris were going to be all sorts of manic. Though I am by no means an expert, it was my chosen responsibility to deliver her an amazing weekend (after all, it was her first-ever visit to a language-diverse country).
After an eventful overnight coach trip from London, we arrived in Bercy and logged in to the Hotel Tonight app just in time to secure a fantastic deal for Hotel O (a gorgeous, central, and Pantone-hued design hotel).
The following two days were an unforgettable blizzard of adventure, carbohydrates, discovery, accidental seduction, Frenglish, and more.
But enough chat, there’s a vlog to watch…
To satiate your international appetite before I share my video postcard from Paris, I think it might be time to pause for an outfit post.
Though I’d ideally be running around patisseries in a beret and stilettos, tackling miles upon miles of city streets in under 48 hours calls for a more practical ensemble. Casual pleats, bows, and tailoring it is.
What I Wore:
Blue tie-back pleated dress from Closet via House of Fraser
My trusty handbag
Bejewelled city sandals (old, similar here)
Amidst a rough couple of weeks between eye surgeries, my sister* Tiffani finally left the US and made her way over here to join me for two weeks of adventure in Leeds, London, and Paris. Not only that, but two of my favourite Londoners hauled their lovely bums up to Leeds to share in the excitement of her first weekend; an introduction to ‘night’s out’, cathedrals, mystery games, the countryside, latte art, the Great British High Street, and more.
I am a lucky lady.
What I Wore:
Julian Hakes Mojito Shoes from Cloggs (because what better excuse to whip out the coolest shoes I’ve ever seen – plus, they’re on sale!)
Polka dot shirt dress (similar here)
(*Not by blood, but – long story short – after her family took me in and became my family so many years ago, there is no better way to describe her).
This is not a false alarm. This is my promised review of the LG G3 and my return to Youtube!
Zalando is one of those websites I always end up shopping from should I dare open one of their e-mails or linked tweets. Though the products are in the 1000s, a bit of smart searching always lands you a sale deal; one (or two) too good to leave unbasketed.
In this case, it was their festival guide that did the persuading. A girl can never have too many white tees, skinny jeans or shiny boots, AMIRITE?
What I Wore:
Bibi Lou boots in silver (no longer available)
Schiesser Revival vest in white
Just Female black skinny jeans
Mini neon pink leather satchel (handmade)
