Not long enough! Paris was awesome, I wish I could’ve stayed for a few months. The cobblestone streets, amazing history and grand buildings, combined with the French people made for an unforgettable time. Our two nights was not long enough but definitely enough time to gobble too many croissants!
We shopped Rue de Rivoli, Le Bon Marche, Champs-Élysées and Printemps Haussmann plus around the Pont Neuf area where we stayed.
Prints were quite subtle in colour and had a bohemian feel
Paris confirmed the oversized cosy knitwear trend and the French made it look good. The capes and cowl neck were being worn and selling in most shops. A shop called COS, is H & M’s more upmarket chain. COS has oversized clothes in all styles, with the androgynous style. After seeing it more and more I am starting to come around to this idea and even purchased a top. Amazing what only two more days of fashion influence can do! I can see this direction making its way to NZ in a more subtle way. Perhaps jumpers with flared waists or very loose sleeves. Get ready cowboys.... tassels and suede are making a huge comeback.

I’m super excited with my Sweaty Betty grey marle casual jumpsuit. Yup I’ve bought a onesie!
#10 Rue de Duchampe – Ches Nous had a vibrant ambience and I recommend a drink there. It’s renown for its wine and Dad ordered the only beer – typical.
En route to NEW YORK. I’m hoping to spot a few stars.
