Arrivé à Paris! After 2 years of talking about visiting Paris and the French Open we finally got round to organising a trip.
My treasured item I always have packed or ready, (especially living in England) is my mac! A loose, lightweight but fitted mac with large buttons can pretty much go with everything and can be a life saver if you ever get caught in a shower!
I have a black and cream mac both from Zara which I mix and match depending on the weather and my outfit for the day. This trip I decided on the cream, and my basic, comfy classics; light, soft denim jeans, preppy navy polo shirt and pumps.
To keep the rain away for the weekend I wore my We Positive leather bracelet for good luck!!
So my sister is officially my best friend when shopping! We walk into every shop and nearly always pick up exactly the same pieces. This petite denim dress was one of those moments in Topshop.
Perfect for spring or autumn when the sun is only just showing its face, a denim dress is a timeless piece. Slightly heavier material than a cotton or silk, the denim keeps a great shape. Arriving in style, with no wrinkles or ruches.
Keeping it casual, choose a pair of leather brogues, pastel loafers or print skate shoes. Office, Russell & Bromley, Kurt Geiger and Massimo Dutti offer a brilliant selection.
Kent my home county, where the fields are filled with rapeseed this time of year. I always pass this field and public footpath when driving to work and I think this just sums up why we are traditionally known as "The Garden of England".
My sister wore this bright top out last week to dinner and I instantly wanted to steal this! I love my bright, mad colours and this teamed up with a statement necklace catches anyone's eye straight away. The bright orange instantly lifts the pair of neutral strides and wedges.
Blouse: Miss Selfridge

For those of you that know me, I love my statement prints and bright colours. These blue and white pleat trousers were a must from the moment I saw them! Offset with a plain 60's style white blouse and plain navy leather loafers I like to stick with similar colour schemes.
I always try to tie a pattern with plain. Sometimes less is more!!
Parfois Crocodile Bag - One of my favourite bags at the moment! Not too small or too big.
