...or perhaps more appropriately, bonjour!
I'm back. Do you still remember me? You may have seen from my twitter that I spent the last week in beautiful Paris and it was absolutely wonderful. I'm also sorry for being a very naughty blogger and not scheduling any posts to pop up while I was away. Slap on the wrist for me, but I hope you'll enjoy the series of Paris outfits to come, of which this is the first. I particularly like this one shouldered ruffle dress because it's 100% cotton and so perfect for hot weather! The only downside being it's ever so slightly see through and I was informed by a reliable source that you could vaguely see my knickers in the sunlight. This is obviously not ideal when trying to look all cool and parisian. Let's just hope my usual massive necklace detracted from any flashing possibilities.
On Monday, we arrived on the Eurostar and did the usual check in and unpack, or in my case - open my suitcase and stir the mess around a bit. Lets just say I'm not an efficient packer. Unfortunately, upon entering France my phone announced 'sim invalid' and has been broken ever since - so I'm having instagram withdrawal. Carl and I then ventured out onto the scorchingly hot Champs Elysees Avenue and made the obligatory trip to Laduree for macaroons, cakes and non-alcoholic cocktails (it was only 5pm afterall.) After that, we made our way to the Arc de Triomphe (oh good grief so many steps to the top) stopping along the way to take some outfit pictures.
I thought it might be quite sweet to include some scene setting holiday photos along with the outfit ones, so please let me know if you enjoy these and I'll keep including them with the accompanying outfits!
