This week I spent a few days in Paris, making myself at home in the city with two of my favourite girls. Think croissants for breakfast, rosé afternoons and plenty of outfit changes. I have been to the beautiful city plenty of times before and it slowly feels more and more like home each time, somewhere I can imagine myself living and dressing the total undone-chic-Parisian style. I feel I have got to grips with the must have pieces for your trip for the spring season.
Is there anything better than a long lunch in the city? My favourite spot is Cafe Ruc opposite The Hotel Louvre, tuck yourself back away from the road with a truffle risotto, sipping on Whispering Angel and watch the world go by, in your own bubble. an outfit that I go back to again and again in spring for feeling put together but still comfy and relaxed is a satin slip skirt and chunky knit. If I was to change anything about this outfit, in hind sight, I would perhaps bring a pair of trainers with me, so after lunch we could walk around the city with ease. The knit I am wearing here is one of my absolute favourites from Pixie Market, linked below.
There is nothing like shopping in Paris, from the aesthetically pleasing designer boutiques, to the Galeries Lafayette, my favourite department-style-concept store. It also is home to the Jaquemus café Citrôn, which I am just obsessed with. I would suggest giving yourself at least one or two days of your trip, if you are a lover of shopping in stores like me, to wander around the stores stopping for coffee breaks along the way. My go to outfit is a good fitting suit, totally crease free and a chic minimal colour that’s easy to wear. I am wearing a navy blue suit with a matching belt from 4th And Reckless and my favourite boots from Zara. I would recommend bringing a big reusable bag to reduce the amount of carrier bags you accept.
LATE NIGHT DINNER
After spending an entire day walking around the city, a quick turn around at the apartment and we were ready for dinner. One of my favourite spots for a romantic dinner is Girafe. Little bit expensive but amazing food and gorgeous interior. But I would also recommend Miss Ko if you are a sushi lover, more of a glam, cool vibe. I very rarely opt for a dress in the evenings through winter and early spring, so trousers and a statement top is my favourite choice.
