Hello - and welcome to part two of the Parisian posting.

I say part two as though this is the final part. HA let's be real here. For those of you who missed part one (frankly I hope your excuse is good) don't worry - you can catch up on all of the frivolities here.

First and foremost though; outfits by day. 

I mentioned in my last post that we really dropped on with the weather, but I had definitely packed for the cold as I am generally quite a nesh person. I rarely wear gloves at all and then BAM - I spend the whole weekend gloved up in leathers! I felt like I was constantly on hand to step into the role of designated chauffeur upon request (especially when I paired them with my baker hat - which was always). 

Of course I didn't travel without my trusty ALLSAINTS black leather jacket, which I pretty much threw on at every opportunity. It is one of my all time go-to pieces when I need coverage for both day and night, which for short breaks when I am restricted on baggage allowance, I often need! 

I alternated my outfit choices between chic frilly dresses and casual ripped jeans. Naturally by day two my feet were feeling the pain of stomping around in my favourite black biker boots (totally worth it) so vans were the hero of the day. A dash of faux fur and some of my favourite sunnies were an easy option for wandering around the city in search of my next wine stop. 

Before I went to Paris, I ordered THE cutest military style Missguided coat! It was actually an absolute steal in the sale at the time - which made me love it even more. I also ordered the cutest faux fur stole too (yep - I almost have as many of those as I do leather jackets) but it added the extra layer of warmth I needed when exploring the shaded streets. All in all, comfort was key for me on this trip as I had actually been suffering with my back (story for another time) and I do try to explore as much as I can on my short city breaks as I am limited with time. 

It is only fair that I also give a very special shout out to my trusty handbag that was GLUED to my hip for the entirety of the trip. Rhyming oooooh. I can't find this exact bag online to link but it's such a great find from Zara. It's sturdy gold handle and option for an extended strap gave me the versatility and femininity that I want whilst I'm away (especially in one of the world's top fashion capitals).
