NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Off Duty Paris Attire

Following on from my go-to "feel good" outfit I posted a few weeks back, I thought I'd give you a little glimpse into another outfit which I sport incredibly regularly. This one is my go-to for practical situations rather than dinners and lunch meetings. From traveling to work - you can be pretty sure I'm wearing an outfit like this. Having this as my go-to made packing for Paris pretty darn easy too...

Let's get the bag out the way - the Zara Office City is a classic for lugging the kitchen sink around with you. I often have it with me to carry my work note books/tripods/anything that doesn't fit in a standard handbag. It can get mighty heavy, but for traveling or London-bound working days you can be sure i'll have this with me. 

Then we have my ASOS Adverse Chelsea Boots - another old favourite. These are super comfortable and keep my feet at just the right temperature (is that a weird thing to love about shoes?), making them perfect for exploring cities (or, the less glamorous alternative, dashing for the tube/bus).

I purposely wore tights to Paris as they're super comfy but also dry off very quickly after getting caught in the rain. I'd checked the weather in the days leading up and a shower or five looked pretty certain. So tights it was. I also wore my (p)leather jacket as it doesn't get overly wet in the rain, but is also light enough to stop me getting too hot whilst walking around. 

And then we have my Zara crop jumper, this comes in a variety of colours at a wee £15 and hides a food baby better than any other top I own, and when you're surrounded by creps and macarons this is very important! To finish off the outfit I couldn't not wear my Zara skort - it's the perfect cut for my figure and is a shirt but without the worry of a Marilyn moment. I always feel comfortable in this so I regularly throw it on - whether I'm traveling or working it's just perfect.

Bored of an all black outfit? Don't fret, there will definitely be some colour coming up soon, and you might even see some denim that isn't black... *shocked face*.

  6. Obsessed with this look. I'm a monochrome girl, black + grey + white. I think layering one color in multiple pieces allows you to play with other things, like texture and shape. I'll be recreating this one :) Hope you had a wonderful time in Paris!! xx

  7. Totally agree with you though, black is my uniform. It's so easy to look good and feel good in black when you havn't got much time to get ready or just can't be bothered with effort. haha.

    Also.. that's the ultimate back drop for an OOTD. Werk. Haha.

  20. I have a habit of carrying everything with me too. I just like to prepared! And with all black outfits I find it easier to coordinate makeup you know? I can put on any color of lipstick and look good with an all black outfit!
