A tourist in Paris

I haven’t been a tourist for a while. What a lovely place to be a tourist Paris is?!

You can explore the metro, the cafes, plenty of monuments on the map and some secret ones… I loved the small streets, where you can feel the real French atmosphere, find a tiny cozy cafe, try quirky food that you’ll never have again, see the buzzing people, listen to an old man playing an accordion…

Paris is lovely!

I like mixing clothes and picking my own style. I don’t usually dress in one same brand from head to toe. I like buying things in different moments, moods and places and then just mixing them together knowing they bring me memories about things.

Paris is all about feelings, emotions, flavours, tastes, love and romance… I chose to get dressed in red for the sightseeing day. The weather was nice enough, so I didn’t need a coat and could just jump out in a comfy poncho. I’m so tired of the constant winter cold in London, that I cherish every opportunity to go out without millions of jackets and coats.

I have this poncho from one of my last visits to Bulgaria – bought it in a small boutique shop. I love boutique shops – you don’t need to know what’s the brand, it might be made by a local designer or imported from a neighbour country, but you know that the woman behind the counter has picked a few sized of this particular garment herself, because she loves it and wants to offer it to her customers. I put a belt only over half of it – to show my waist line on the front, while I left it loose on the back.

My favourite brick red jeans from Dorothy Perkins, which helped me win the Instagram competition, add nice popup colour to this outfit. This time I paired them with a red clutch from Next. A bit of jewelry and elegant ankle boots from Capollini.
