Be forewarned before you go any further into this post: it's a lengthy one, please forgive my inability to edit myself. I love these shots so much that I couldn't cut down any more than this. Tee hee.
There's something about being in Paris that energizes the daylights into you. Not just that, but it also inexplicably alters your mind frame into rethinking what you once considered to be a good outfit. What you'd previously believed to be perfectly acceptable attire on any given day or night out simply won't cut it for gallivanting about the historic streets of the City of Lights.
In that case, what does one wear to not feel sub par in fashion's capital, the place that's renowned for effortless style, nonchalant chic and endless beauty? Gahhhh.
I'll tell you what: there's never been a better excuse to wear pretty flowy dresses. It's not in my habit to be overly feminine, but I never shy away from avoiding an inseam. It's best done in that French girl way: paired with contrasting elements that balance each other out, in this case an insanely pretty and minimalist dress accompanied by a tough girl biker bomber.
This is one of my favorite looks ever, and I happen to have worn it in one of my favorite cities ever, making this blog post one of my favorites ever. What a time to be alive!
PS the dress is Cienne (I've talked about them before) and you can get it here.
