Summer escape: Paris


The summer holidays are in full swing (even if the weather is not always up for the game), and day after day, I find myself daydreaming about amazing getaways to fabulous destinations. Sadly, there is no "vacation" sign on my agenda this summer, but that doesn't prevent me from imagining all those amazing destinations I'd love to visit (or visit again) one day. That's why I've decided to start new summer series: every week I'll share one perfect day & night wardrobe for one glamorous summer escape.
And I couldn't start with any other city than my beloved Paris. When I think of Paris, I always think of striped tops, polka dot accessories, glam oversized sunnies and Brigitte Bardot-inspired Repetto ballet flats. This is a go-to day uniform of every fabulous Parisienne. It's the perfect outfit when you want to discover museums, hit the most stylish boutiques and enjoy your baguette, croissants and café au lait. In the evening, opt for a chic flowy dress and classic pumps, spice it all up with some sparkling jewelry, and you're ready to dance the Parisian night away!  

Day


4. DKNY sunglasses, $89

Night



Something extra:

A few things that should definitely make it to your suitcase: an original and unique city guide, nude & red nail polish for perfect Parisian mani / pedi, a small umbrella (afternoon showers are never too far away), a classic black eyeliner (for that perfect cat-eye look), a great black mascara and red lipstick. Très chic!


Don't forget to follow Macarons and Pearls for more chic updates and inspiring pictures:
