under paris skies.








cynthia steffe jacket, american apparel tee, oysho silk shorts, martin + osa scarf, prada crossbody bag.

Apologies for being gone longer than I projected, I didn't envision getting sick twice in the week after I came home, which isn't very compatible with unpacking and sifting through over 3000 photos. But now that I have achieved the ability to semi-breath through my congested nose, here we go.
These are from the last few days of my trip, which I spent in Paris. After deciding our feet were going to fall off one afternoon if we didn't stop walking and take a break, my sister and I sat down at a cafe near our hotel, had crepes with nutella and espresso, and people-watched. It was so lovely and relaxing, I had fun checking out the streetstyle especially. While this wasn't my first time to Paris, a few days was nowhere near enough for me. Especially not when it came to shopping...I didn't buy a single item of cloting in Paris, if you would believe that! I did get the shorts I'm wearing in another city-the first pair of paperbag waist shorts I've ever found that fit me.

not a single item of clothing bought? no, it's almost impossible to believe, lol :)

on a different note - that jacket is so cool - and, trust me, cool is the best adjective here because it's both pretty and ...ee, laid back (as much as a jacket can be) and it's not over-the-top :)

Alecto said...

that type of shorts in particular never look good on me. i end up looking like a pillsbury dough boy. i like the combination of textures, patterns and colors you combined. and whatever you're eating looks scrumptious.

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Your Prada is of the perfect color and I love the size. Also, you are right, those paperbag waist shorts fit you so well. I'm so jealous of your trip =)

I hope you are feeling better!

Hayley Golightly Style said...

I love those paper bag shorts! I have the same problem with finding a pair that fits me (they make them too paper bag sized! haha)
