Paris, Paris! Countless times in this city and yet I’m still as in love as the first time. The pretty houses, the typical cafès, and the unique Parisienne lifestyle – this mix always makes me smile. Even though it has rained continuously in the last days, we have been walking around Paris for hours and enjoyed the atmosphere of the city. This time, our apartment was located at Bastille, just a few minutes walk from my favorite area in Paris: Les Marais. The many cute cafés and boutiques are an absolute must when in Paris.
These pictures were taken after a short shopping tour through the Galeries Lafayette, near the Opera. To adapt my look to the city, I decided to wear a classic Parisienne outfit which is also a typical Valerie- & Simple et Chic-Look. I’m wearing a classic black trench coat from Jake*s Collection and a super cute striped sweater, also from Jake*s. I love these basic pieces, which can be combined in a variety of ways and which fit into any occasion. Those two pieces are definitely my staple pieces for this season. To give the look a special something, I’m wearing red shoes and red lips – so Parisienne, hihi :-).
The ones of you that already know me for some time, may have noticed over the past few years, that I’m a huge basic-lover. This look, for example, would also work perfectly as a day-to-day look- just wear sneakers instead of heels and you will have a sporty and casual everyday look. That’s why I like the Jake*s pieces so much. The brand focuses on great staple pieces that you can wear every day. Jake*s collection, on the other hand, has a great selection of elegant pieces for chic events. I love to combine simple & chic together! How do you like my typical Parisienne Look?
