 As promised in yesterdays post, here is day 2 of my travels to Paris. I spent most of the day with audrey as she showed me around her neighborhood Les Marais. It’s a quaint little area with lots of cafes and beautiful boutique shops. We spent the day visiting the yummiest of bakeries and macaron shops (Laudurèe being one of them).  The outfit I wore this day actually  reminded me of a macaron. The pastel mint color is and pastels in general are something I’ve always been drawn to. Maybe it’s due to my love for sweets? Whatever the reason is, I am always drawn to it.

The skirt I’m wearing is from Philosophy and I was suppose to wear this outfit for their New York Fashion Show but  I ended up getting into a car crash on our way to the show with Aimee.  I chose this outfit for the show because I thought it would be perfect for Paris. It was feminine, flowy, pastel and romantic. All of the things I think of when I think of Paris.

Another thing I think of and have been completely inspired by in Paris is the architecture. No matter what side of town you are in, there is so much history at every corner. I just love the fact that even the simplest of buildings have different shades of color and flowers everywhere.sig logo 9

    Thanks Deena!! <3

Oh my, sorry to learn of the crash!

This outfit reminds me of Easter, light, fresh, and hopeful. It is Love. Thought the boots were the new legging boot things that Kim Kardash wore in black last month, verdict is still out on those I think.

Thanks for another wonderful outfit and post, Chriselle.

Paris offers the best backdrops for photos, doesn’t it? I read this post yesterday in a hurry, and now that I have taken the time to scan it better I have to say: you look amazing! I would have never thought to pair those boots with such a skirt. That’s why you are an inspiration! ^^

Dilek ( March 12, 2014 at 11:59 AM )

I love how soft & understated the sweater is. It’s pastel shade is perfect. Not too mutes & washed out but not overly strong either.
