Jardin des Tuileries & Le Meurice, Paris
Paris is one of my favourite cities in the world. It’s.just.so.beautiful. On our recent flying visit to the city we were lucky enough to have bright skies, and mild temperatures (us Brits really do love to talk about the weather don’t we…) After an early shoot with Romain, I snuck back to the room and let the light stream in through the floor to ceiling windows. Up on the 4th floor, we had a glorious view of Parisian rooftops, shining in the early Autumn sunshine. After a quick change I headed out to my next appointment and took the opportunity to stroll through the Jardin des Tuileries en route. (What a stunning way to get across town!)
I couldn’t resist this beautiful skirt on a recent trawl through ASOS. The ruffles, pin-tucks, and asymmetric hem… It’s a real beauty and quite the steal. I live by LK Bennett heels – they are the most wearable shoes, even for hours on end – and these are my favourite sandals from this season’s collection. I paired them with my go-to accessories of the year – rose gold sunglasses from Quay Australia, and a choker, which just seems to make any outfit “an outfit”. Having left the perfect top at home whilst hurrying to pack my bags, I rifled though Carl’s suitcase and nicked his favourite t-shirt – this embroidered number from Maison Labiche. I’m a little bit obsessed with their emblazoned collection and their personalised collection in particular make the best presents. (Following my online spree Carlito now wears his name on his chest.)
Heading back through the park, I made my way over to Hotel Costes to catch up for lunch with my dear friend Sarah who works for the ultimate… Chanel. We spent our crazy days as partners in crime in London, and on our many trips to St Tropez, but after her move back to Toronto we now get to catch up on our travels around the world, and where better to meet during fashion week than Paris…
