(Outfit Diary) Square Paul-Albert

February 12, 2011

Urban Outfitters blazer, Gap tank, NafNaf skirt, Aldo heels, La Vie Parisienne earrings
 
We live on a very busy street in Paris, with two grocery stores, three produce stands, a boulangerie-patisserie and countless kebab stalls within ten feet of our front door. But just a short walk down the road is a noiseless side-street that leads up the side of the hill to Sacre-Coeur Cathedral. Rue Muller is the beginning of the picturesque, romantic Montmartre seen in movies, and at the top of it, Place Paul-Albert is a haven of adorable cafes and cobblestones nestled between Haussmanian apartment buildings. Just around the corner is my favourite restaurant in Paris, l'Afghani.

I felt like a true Parisienne sitting at L'Ete en pente douce in my tutu and blazer... but back on the street I raised quite a few eyebrows. At this time of year, most Parisians wear a strict uniform of scarves, coats, skinny jeans, ankle boots and oversized purses. My tutu was the only one in sight. But I've never been one to shy away from making a fashion statement. Happy Saturday, my lovelies!

  10. Thank-you all again for continuing to visit my little blog. Your comments mean a lot to me :)

    @Rebecca... Thanks. Honestly, I realised after the fact that this was not the best idea I've ever had, but it was fun while it lasted :)

    @Natalya's Closet... It's such a fantastic place to live; it's a shame we can't stay there forever. My home in Vancouver isn't nearly as exciting :P

    @Charlotte... I can't wait to see your take on the blazer and tutu :)

    @Jennifer... Aren't these shoes the best? They go with everything! And considering the 6-ish inch heel, they're really quite comfortable.
