Final Parisian Instalment
I am sad to say this is my final Parisian post. I am already missing the incredible streets SO much! But, I am going to end the posts with a good'un! My most casual look from Paris, but you guys know how much I love a laid back outfit - especially when it's made up of incredible pieces that make even the most simple of combinations exciting! Such as this jacket, another piece from Byond Online, which I am SO madly in love with. Just look at those sleeves!!!
I paired it with a really easy combination of skinny jeans, a knit and my comfiest shoes. And of course with my new scarf in my current favourite colour! Thankfully it was a gorgeous day too, after lots of rain over the previous day it was so perfect for wandering out the city and taking it all in before we had to leave.
I also wanted to briefly share a couple of the showrooms I managed to visit. The first of which was Charlie May, who is an all round fave of mine! I have read Charlie's blog for a long time now, and discovered her collection through her blog and immediately fell in love with it too. Think amazing materials, gorgeous structures and minimal colour palettes - basically my idea of a perfect collection! I fell madly in love with this cream cropped belted jacket which I genuinely wanted to do a runner with there and then.
If you are ever looking for a small investment piece that will play a part in your wardrobe for years to come then I urge you to check out Charlie May's line. Especially her AW collections, which is just a knitwear heaven!
Charlie can also be held responsible for the purchase I made... you will know what I am talking about if you watched my Paris vlog! I am going to have all my Paris spending moments coming up in a haul this weekend too.
The other showroom visit I wanted to share was Lisa King. Lisa creates beautiful silk scarves and swimwear, all digitally printed with her own designs. I was amazed by this! Some of the prints are her own hand drawings, and my favourite was her origami print which she photographed the stages of then symmetrically printed it onto the scarves. You guys know prints do scare me a little bit, but Lisa had so many that I would gladly wear! I really fell for the skinny scarves which were so chic and would be a great way to add a bit of print into your wardrobe!
All in all Paris was an incredible trip and I am already missing it so much. I always feel so inspired by Paris, and to be able to work while I am there is just a dream come true!! And of course to shop in Pairs is always a treat.. but more on that on Sunday!
