...Fashion makes what could be a mudane necessity of everyday life creative, exciting and interesting. Clothes are more to me than just clothes, they are a form of art. Our bodies are like canvas, and when we dress we make a picture in the world! Fashion and personal style for me are forms of self expression and escapism. How we dress is important whether we are choosing to dress to reveal or conceal parts of our personality. It is the way we wish the world to see us, so even if the intention is to dress for the latter it still give us hints to who people are. I love mixing high fashion with vintage. I don't just dress to look pretty and I'm quite experimental..I dress for myself and will wear anything as long as I like it even if others are not quite so sure. It's important that your happy!!

La Douce Vie

Flower cut out dress: Topshop,
White T-bar sandals: Topshop(old),
White lace detailed scarf: Topshop,
White gold studded belt: H&M.

I looked 'Oh so British' walking the French streets in this dress, but it isn't so twee as it looks on first sight with caged cut-out detailing on the side, the reason I liked it.
(Though, this dress isn't something I actually chose, it was a gift.)

This day was all about the french equivalent
of 'la dolce vita';'la douce vie'.

I spent the whole day relaxing, walking, appreciating the beautiful streets and testing cafe after cafe. Indulging in espresso, hot chocolate and bread spices milkshakes..Mmmm!

I admire how the French take their time and make everything so classy.
Sitting to have a coffee is made into a luxurious experience and they seem to show more appreciation to a small cup of espresso than we do to a glass of wine.

Sitting in the warmest air and sheltered by this huge orange parasol,
I watched the rain pour.  Probably one of the most beautiful and romantic experiences I have had while drinking an espresso. I couldn't figure out if this was because of the view of the shower or the sound that accompanied it.
It was all so intense and relaxing at the same time.
