This week it was decided that in July, I'll be taking a trip to Paris. I'm ashamed to say, I've never visited France in anything other than a 'school trip' capacity. (In fact, I remember distinctly - I stayed in a youth hostel where the walls were so atrociously sticky that you could unpack, press your clothes against the walls and voila.. no wardrobe needed. Sadly I'm not joking for comedic value.) Despite this rather 'unpleasant' experience, my own idea of paris is marginally more artistic, inspiring and romantic. Even though it's barely February and the temperature in the UK is struggling to rise above 8 degrees, I've found myself collecting a few extra Parisian-inspired pieces. If I can imagine myself wearing it whilst ambling down L'Avenue des Champs Elysées (possibly wearing a ridiculously big hat and cat-eye sunglasses) then I'm powerless to resist.
Dress : ASOS. Belt & Earrings : Topshop.
As well as the fact that this dress was justifiable when set up against my criteria, I also think it's extremely wearable, day and night. I appreciate that some people might consider it a bit dressy for the day, but I'm sure you'll know by now that the fear of over-dressing isn't really an issue for me. I've already worn it out for dinner and will definitely be wearing it on days out during the warmer months!
