Paris....Beautiful, Chic, Cool

Style Theory: Weekend Away in the beautiful city of Paris, sightseeing, shopping, drinking and eating.... here are my top tips and a little peak into our weekend!

We stayed - Hotel Malte Opéra just a short walk from the Louvre, the Seine and Notre Dame Cathedral.

We visited - Musée d'Orsay, walked along the banks of the Seine, wandered through the Tuileries Gardens, shopped our way along the Champs Élysées and found shelter from the late afternoon showers in the cosy, sweet smelling, pastel interior of the Ladurée café.

Champs Elysees and La Duree

We ate - the best of Italian cuisine, spicy sausage pizza and buffala mozzarella salad in La Briciola in the trendy Marais district on Friday night followed by wonderful cocktails in an experimental cocktail bar called The Little Red Door. Then on Saturday night indulged in the French classic steak and frîtes in the legendary, timeless brasserie La Coupole in the heart of Montparnasse, followed by more fabulous cocktails in the 1930's style speakeasy, basement bar and club, Le China.

We wore - an eclectic mix of clothes, practicality ruled for daytime and a little glamour for night. I stuck to a palette of navy and black with a splash of pink and my little sister was a riot of colour and so she should be it was her 30th!

    1. Thanks so much for reading, I am a rose pink lipstick girl too so I bought a super cheap red lipstick to try it out! It is Rimmel Kate moss no.1 I also bought a cheap lip liner to keep it contained and stop smudging. The lipstick comes out pretty dark so you have to blot a lot! Xxx
