Monochorme in Versailles

Monochrome in Versailles

This being my third trip to Paris I thought it was about time that I visited Versailles. It is so spectacular but also very overwhelming. To think that people actually lived there blows my mind. My favourite part about it all are the gardens, they are so beautiful and maze-like gardens are just fun.

You cant help look at the Eiffel Tower and feel so much happiness. Or at least I can’t, it is my favourite piece of art (in stiff competition with Jackson Pollock) and its beauty will never get old for me. So, I thought I would dress up for it a bit today with my new Zara eye print dress. But, I still had to wear my comfy sneakers because, lord, I have done a lot of walking.

Pastels and Leather in Amsterdam

Leather in Amsterdam

Today was my last day in Amsterdam. On the rest of my days in this beautiful city the weather has been quite indecisive, which is something I am very used to living in Cape Town. Often when the temperature is going through all the seasons in one day I tend to do the same with my clothing. So, I wore my birks for the times in the day when the weather is hot and then I wore my favourite coat for that chilly wind that creeps into the streets of Amsterdam from time to time.

I love structured pieces, which means that I have been very attracted to collared shirts these days. They are so easy to wear day through night and can be a part of a casual or chic outfit. With my outfit in this post I have tried to add elements of both styles – the pony hair bag and Mui Muis adds a bit of chic while the jeans and slip ons tone the outfit down a bit.
