Turning a bit brown and energetic for today’s post! Both of us wanted to see the Defense area again, because we both remembered it as being this sci-fi new area that was immaculate and new. Now, I don’t really know why, but as I’ve mentioned in our first Paris post, this city seems to get dirtier every year. This area makes no exception. It was a far cry from what we remembered it to be. The entire area was quite dirty, but I have to admit that it still is beautiful and imposing so we really wanted to have a photoshoot there. And we actually couldn’t find a better spot that this rusty-coloured urban sculpture. It matched our clothes perfectly.
I actually have no idea why I went for a beige-brown combo for Paris. I mean, when choosing colours, I knew exactly why I was channeling my inner hippie in Milan, but for some reason, I have no idea why I opted for this brown dress. I do love it, make no mistake, just like I love any wrap-dress – I think they are the best! This one I got from Debenhams ages ago, so naturally, there is no way it’s still available online, but I will do my best to find an alternative. The great thing about a well tailored wrap dress is the fact that it tends to be quite forgiving if, by some error you put on a few kgs, as a matter of fact, They tend to look better on curvier figures. For more on that just search Taylor Swift in a wrap dress and compare her with Eva Mendes in one and you’ll immediately get what I mean.
Back to the outfit and away from the catty comments. I paired the brown dress with the newly acquired brown platform sandals from Bata that are no where to be found online – I don’t know what’s going on with these store exclusives… I paired everything with my greige – I love that colour – DKNY bucket bag and my Dior shades and I was ready to take on dirty Paris in a rusty manner. As for the bling, you’ve probably noticed that while I am away, I tend to wear the same stuff everyday, but that’s only because I love all my jewellery and I tend to wear them everyday for days without changing anything. Hence, I wore my Pandora bracelets and ring and my Tomorrowland ring.
D also played nice and went for a beige/greige colour theme. He chose his beige H&M shorts and decided to combine them with his grey palm printed t-shirt from Mango. I just loved the way he mixed beige with grey, but he did take his brown bag from Barcelona that matched my dress perfectly. I can say that my bag matched his outfit, while his bag matched mine. He finished his outfit with his Tommy Hilfiger boat shoes that he seems to take with him everywhere, but I suppose that’s what happens when you have a pair of very comfortable shoes that also look nice. As usual for this short trip, we both wore our Longines watches and D wore his Fossil and Constantin Nautics bracelets.
I know that it seems like these Paris posts are going way slower than usual, but the truth is it’s summer, and during summer everyone seems to have a lot of stuff going on and we make no exception. I promise there will be no more breaks in this set of posts.
