Out of all the outfits I wore in Paris this was by far my favourite and I knew I had to share it first. This skirt from Kaliko is so beautiful with a vibrant hyper-floral print and I was over the moon when the lovely ladies at Kaliko sent it to me. Its also worth mentioning its down to £39 at the moment in their online sale!!! I knew I wanted to pair it with stripes, much to my mothers horror! But I hope she’ll be convinced as I think the clashing prints work really well as does the high racer shape of this New Look vest.  I added this beauty of a necklace also from New Look which has the most vibrant floral design of jewels sewn onto a bib style necklace, I love it so much. Sadly I can’t find it online to link it for you but keep your eye out in store as that’s where I picked it up!
The cute dusky pink handbag is my precious Andi bag by Onna Ehrlich. This bag is real leather and is so soft and such a pretty pastel pink I loved how it looked with the vibrant skirt. Its actually quite roomy so plenty of space for all my essentials, flippin love the little tassel detail on the zip too :-))
As the name of the post hints to one of my favourite Episodes of SATC I did kinda felt a bit like Carrie Bradshaw in this outfit. Maybe a little too dressed up for the laid back Parisians? – possibly! But hey who cares, I honestly loved this look and for someone who rarely wears heels or indeed red lipstick this made me very happy.
I wore this to head out for dinner and we had a lovely meal of salad, steak and tart tatin and a bottle of wine. I love Paris for its food and its little quaint restaurants. Everyone is so social, meals take longer as people chat, an idea I tried my hardest to convert my husband who eats so fast and says hardly a word! I’d love to spend more time in Paris in the future just sitting in cafes, talking and watching the world go by, that’s the dream yeah??
I’ve a few more Paris posts to come including a little haul post of what I bought including Sephora, all to come next week.
Have a great weekend xxx
