What I wore: skater dress and brogues

This is what I wore on our full day I Paris (we only stayed two nights). The photos are taken in Montmartre where we went for fabric shopping, but also of course to climb to Sacre Coeur and look over the city which even on a foggy day is pretty awesome. I liked Montmartre better this time round, cos it was less overrun with tourists it not being the summer, plus we had just had lunch, so I gave it a fairer chance – last time we visited, we were really hungry and somehow unable to find anywhere nice to eat. It does feel nicely self contained with its own character. I’m still not sure I’d totally choose to stay there if we visit again though, it is a pain to get to places from there, and even in October there was enough tourists to stop you being able to pretend to live there. Ah well, next time we go, it’ll probs be with Milo anyway and then our airbnb choices will be much more restricted, so we may just have to go with the flow.

On a completely unrelated note, you know how sometimes people give advice to take outfit photos from below to make yourself seem taller? I can reliably report that this is not a good idea if you have chunky legs!

Outfit stats:
* dress – asos * shoes – clarks * necklace – my mums * gap trench – charity shop * bag – scaramanga *

    I like your mac! Sometimes it is hard to enjoy very touristy places such as Barcelona so it’s good to hear there weren’t too many people around!

      I’d heard that Barcelona is a bit crazy busy, some of my family went just recently and they didn’t enjoy it because there were just so many tourists. Paris was definitely much quieter in October than last time we went years ago which was in June I think.
