I bought this Zara knit jumper with cords back in August – because I’m prepared like that. As well as the fact that I feared that for £29.99 it would go out of stock. It hasn’t but the price has increased, but regardless it is a good investment and was one for me to wear to Paris.
I had seen that Paris was about 18 degrees so it was perfect weather to pair this cord jumper with a Topshop checked mac for a more upscaled take on the big knit look. I love that the jumper is warm, oversized, has small holes running through it and also has some uneven rips and holes in it to make it more on trend and youthful. To balance the oversized look, I teamed it with black skinny high waisted jeans from Topshop and my Vivienne Westwood patent boots ( you don’t know how many flat boots I bought and tried, which also made my feet look huge). I decided to wear flat boots for the majority of my trip because ain’t nobody got time to be in pain and mardy!
You don’t need to underestimate a mac when it comes to flat boots because it still works well and in my case it helped balance the oversized sweater out with my boots.
Paris has truly captured my heart and now I understand why people love it so much. As a style blogger, I fell in love with all the architecture and couldn’t help but dream about the possibility to photograph all my photos in this beautiful city. However, we visited; Jardin du Luxembourg which had incredible statues with a backdrop of pure tranquility and the Notre Dame which is up there on my list of incredible cathedrals as it captures gothic architecture perfectly with a touch of romanticism from the intricate detailed stained glass.
In the late afternoon we headed over to the infamous ‘Love Lock Bridge’ which no longer has any locks on it – good job I didn’t rush to Wilkos to buy padlocks eh! The bridge presents a great view of Notre Dame and allowed me to just take a break and just review all the greatness Paris has to offer, such as my favourite things – fashion and food.
Hands down, the Louvre has to be my absolute favourite part of Paris. I love that it has a mixture of gothic and modern buildings which actually work well together. This to me felt truly Parisian as I could just see the history, class and style… sometimes you just fall in love with places! As you can tell, I had to do a mini blog shoot for the #ootd and who can complain about the backdrop?!
If you’ve been to Paris, what was your favourite part?
