Paris in the Springtime

I am really looking forward to a little break coming up in my favourite city, Paris! We booked the mini hol a while ago in the middle of the bleak wintery weather. March seemed a long time away, so I was dreaming of floaty florals, sunglasses, cardigans, sandals and other Springtime wearables. These have been tucked in the back of the wardrobe for a loooooooong time behind the daily layers of jumpers, wooly tights and scarves and I was looking forward to rooting them out again.

Well holiday time has rolled around quicker than expected and weather wise I'm not quite at the bright & flowery stage as the clouds and cool breezes are still hanging around, but luckily inspiration from Saint Laurent's A/W14 collection has arrived!

These gorgeous 60s style pieces are right up my street, making me want to pack my suitcase with my own sequinned treats, collared shirts, metallics & bows with black tights (with my newly acquired ox-blood go go boots). Usually the sparkles are reserved for my party-time wardrobe but I'll be paring these down in the day with a navy oversized coat, woolly scarf and maybe still get a chance to get the sunglasses out if the clouds part occasionally...

Chanelling Nico! I could definitely see a Breton top worn tucked under this cherry sparkle.

Vintage style Gogo boots look rad back in the 60s they often had a comfy mid-heel to dance the night away so also great for wandering round the City's sights!!

I'll be listening to them on the Eurostar. C'est parfait!
