It’s not so quick that you fall in love with a new city. At first it’s like a shoe that you’ve got to break in, squeeze in a little here and squeeze in a little there. It takes a few strides in those new shoes until they fit like a glove, if ever. Luckily, Paris for me was one of those cities that took a little breaking in to feel just right. For a day of shopping in one of the most prestigious areas in town, Place Vendôme, I chose an understated, yet elegant look. This peplum top adds a feminine touch and the skirt is my go-to for a sleek effect. The small cross body bag gives this outfit the pop of color it needs, while still retaining its sophistication….
Paris is always a good idea – you know you’ve heard it more than once.
Spoiler: They were right.
Growing up my mother forbade me from visiting Paris until I could visit with my love. “Paris has to be experienced with the love of your life. It’s the only way.”, she’d tell me. Anywhere else in the world was my oyster, but not Paris. Definitely not Paris.
