Zara Jumper (similar here) and Skirt (similar here) / Sophia Webster Heels / Valentino Bag / Alexis Bittar Ring

During my time in Paris I didn’t have a chance to peruse through the retail stores. Not that I usually do, for many reasons that seem logical and responsible, but on one grey afternoon in Paris after one wrong turn to the next, Carin and I found ourselves wandering through the marvellous and mouth-watering selection of Parisian boutique stores. I was in awe, and I came home with two new purchases that happened to be two new pairs of shoes I just couldn’t imagine leaving behind. My reasoning was at least I can fit these in my suitcase, unlike Luke or my cat who are always so hard to leave behind.

This powder blue pair of Sophia Webster heels caught my attention immediately. Quirky yet quintessential, just like my love for nearly every pair of Charlotte Olympia Heels I come across. Perhaps it was the lack of powder blue sky in Paris that day but I was already envisioning how I would wear these heels. Styled with a simple white on white outfit with a fairy floss textured jumper and a box-shaped skirt, I let this pair of statement heels do all the talking whilst I rolled around Paris in a sugar and eclair induced coma.
