I'm kind-of obsessed with old French posters, like this one from our Parisian apartment. They reflect that certain French 'je ne sais quoi', a mix of classic, almost careless beauty, and a nostalgia for simpler days gone by.
I must find a way to get my hands on some next time I'm back...
Strolling slowly through the streets of Paris is pure bliss to me. Le Marais is one of my favourite areas, full of cute cafes, shops, and narrow, cobbled streets.
As for the outfit - these slouchy leather trousers are a new obsession! I love the relaxed fit, perfect for a day out and about. Worn with this neon bright Cos sweater - part of an effort I'm making to bring more colour back into my wardrobe. Can you say #bringonsummer?
Although I've visited a handful of times already, my heart always skips a beat when I round the corner and see the Eiffel Tour suddenly in front of me, in all it's glory. While the Parisians may not be particularly enamored with it, to me it is the epic symbol of Paris - a city synonymous with love, and romance.
Is it just me, or does it seems like only the French can make neglected and weathered buildings looks so incredibly beautiful?
The peeling paint and broken shutters somehow add a romantic air to the facade of this building, which totally captured my imagination. I could just imagine someone leaning against the window frame, gazing out at the city, cigarette in hand, with Edith Piaf crooning from a record player in the background...
I love the Southbank skatepark. It adds character - and a different perspective to an otherwise pleasant-but-predictable riverbank. Often accompanied by bouncy summer music, it's colourful, entertaining, and provides a place for the young to express themselves. I hope they decide to keep it.
Throwback to this time last year. When the frenzied fashion troops were swarming around Somerset House, bathed in delicious sunshine. Unfortunately, it's blustery winds and flashes of icy rain this time around... but I won't let that keep me away!
