So I’ve just got back from my stint at Paris fashion week with Team InStyle and I was there for EIGHT DAYS. Hence the lack of posts here on the blog. I’m not going to lie, it was brilliant. Paris is such a beautiful city that it’s hard to complain about being away from home for a week with all that wine, cheese and the amazing views…but I’m obviously thrilled to be reunited with Mr Brogue.

Happy to have arrived! Coat, Levi’s; top, Marni; jeans, Paige; clutch, Coach; boots, Nicholas Kirkwood

Anyway, here is a little round-up of some of the outfits I wore while I was there. We were treated to some beautiful spring weather which made dressing prettying easy going. Although I only had space for four pairs of shoes, which was a little upsetting. So I bought a new pair of Bata plimsolls (€21 – bargain! You know how I love my cheap French plimsolls…).

  1. I love your Grensons… all of them! Just wish I could afford them myself! Do they ever do sample sales? I’m getting desperate!! Wood Street were thrilled with your shoes, by the way… Can’t thank you enough… Georgina
