Strolling along Canal St Martin on our last day in Paris in my striped poncho, which doubles as a scarf and a blanket on a plane.  Probably one of the most versatile items in my closet that I try to stock up on ever since blanket capes became a thing. I can’t believe Paris happened almost a month ago, even though this has been a one hectic month for me. Can’t wait to go back as soon as I can, I’ve definitely left my heart there.

I’m wearing:

Poncho – Stradivarius (cool ones here, here and here )
Sweater – Mango
A-line denim skirt – Shein (similar ones here and here)
Suede boots – Zara (similar ones here and here)
Backpack – Leather Satchel Company

black & white

Here’s a black and white outfit I wore on one of my last days in Paris. The venue of a morning show was next to Pont de l’Alma, which was a great opportunity to shoot this outfit only a 10-minute walk away on Rue de Monttessuy – the place from which, in my personal opinion, the Eiffel Tower looks the most impressive.

Too bad this wasn’t at sunset, the light and the colors would be amazing, but I’m pretty happy about how these images turned out, even though on that day I forgot to take a hairbrush with me, and that for me is worse than forgetting my phone and wallet. Need to brush that hair every 30 min, that’s my secret of staying sane :)

I’m wearing:

Sleeveless coat – Shein (tucked the collar in for a cleaner look)
Dress – Front Row
Sneakers – Adidas Stan Smith
Bag – Asos

This has to be my absolute favorite outfit from Paris regardless of the fact I’m wearing a $16 top and my underwear is slightly showing through the skirt, although you might not notice that. I’m obsessed with striped knitwear this season and pleated skirts are sort of fresh and new to me and I felt really feminine wearing this to the Chloe show on my very first day in Paris. And as I mentioned before, these lace up heels (previously worn here and here) are the most beautiful shoes I’ve ever owned, so add that to a perfect combo.

I’m wearing:

Top – Shein
Skirt – Zara (lots of options in this post)
Heels – Asos (similar ones here, here and here)
Bag – Asos
Necklace – Jane Kønig

paris outtakes

October 17, 2015

fashion-blogger-paris-cafeThis time in Paris I focused a lot more on catching some of its beauty with my iPhone rather than my DSLR, for an Instagram addict like me pictures taken with the phone seem to have more life to them, plus all the editing can be done in 10 seconds. I did, however find a bunch of pics on my laptop to show you guys along with a few tips and observations I made while in Paris.

1. If you need to get somewhere fast, don’t take the cab. I made this mistake the previous time, and not only did it cost an arm and a leg, I never got anywhere on time because of the insane traffic. The metro, on the other hand, is super quick and always on schedule.

We were confronted by the metro police on our way out and they handled the situation terribly, refusing to speak English (even though they spoke well) or explain anything, still one of the worst memories of Paris and let’s say I’ve had my share of thieves, scammers and rude waiters during my trips to Paris.

3. The best service we get is always in small cafes away from the main tourist streets. The prices are much better too.

4. I’ve been to Paris a couple of times but never had the chance to visit the Louvre, the queues are intimidating. This time we did manage to see Musee d’Orsay, which has the largest collection of impressionists in the world and a lot of French art in general. We went there on the first Sunday of the month and turns out, it’s the only day in the month, when you can get in for free.

Sure, there’s plenty of amazingness in the center, but avoiding hoards of tourists you’ll be able to connect with Paris on a deeper level. Don’t waist your time queuing at Laduree, there’s plenty of great macarons at every corner and do get up as early as you can to see Paris empty, it’s an awesome experience.

6. I know it’s cliche but the Eiffel Tower is my favorite thing to see and I never get tired of it. Don’t limit yourself to Place Trocadero, there’s at least twenty other places, where you can see it from new amazing angles (Google Maps are your friends).

pom poms

So happy I ordered these shoes just in time for Paris Fashion Week (I actually had to pick them up in Paris), they are the ultimate show stoppers! Since I don’t really like to dress in layers of colors and textures, shoes do most of the talking in my outfits and boy did these babies have something to say. I thought they would be a little uncomfortable, but on the day we shot these pictures I walked at least a mile to find the perfect location for shooting an outfit with blisters from the previous days and felt okay, sort of a shoe crash test in my book.

Too bad it looks like I’ll have to put them away until spring, I still have a number of plain outfits in mind to spice up with these bad boys :)

I’m wearing:

Coat – Asos (on sale!)
Shirt – Zara
Jeans – Asos (similar ones here and here)
Pom poms – Asos Say You Will (true to size, in blue here)
Bag – Saint Laurent
Watch – Michael Kors
Sunnies – ZeroUV
