OUTFIT: dressing parisien
Bonjour de Paris! Even though I had 4 years of French in school, my language skills barely manage to get me a café au lait and croissant for breakfast. Which is why I thought: If I can’t speak it, I might as well dress the part. While I was packing for a short 2-day trip to the city of love, I literally grabbed everything that screamed cliché. Striped shirt, check. Trench coat, check. Red lipstick, check. I am actually surprised that I didn’t bring my “How to be Parisian” book just for the fun of it. After a quick stop at the hotel, I threw everything I found in my suitcase into one outfit and added a dreamy pair of Aquazzura heels from Farfetch to the mix, ready to explore the French capital. I’ve always dreamed of shooting a typical Parisienne look, and today was the perfect opportunity for that. Now, if I have any readers from Paris, please feel free to leave me a comment how completely ridiculous my train of thought that went into this outfit is from a French perspective. At least I managed to contain myself before I almost took dressing parisien to the next level and bought a baguette just for the sake of the pictures… instead I settled for a bouquet of white roses, which our hotel casually placed on the bed. Best welcome ever!
