An entire year (it feels like yesterday!) has passed since sauntering the streets of beautiful Paris and sipping on sangria in Madrid. We often find ourselves reminiscing about the vivid memories we have of both cities, and how we wish we could relive the incredible moments we experienced.
Being a ‘girl’s holiday’ meant planning our outfits for the trip was a full- time task; it consisted of daily back-and-forth whatsapp messages, email lists, wardrobe capsule plans, a few (okay, many) shopping excursions and several discussions around every possible scenario we may encounter and how we could ensure we looked semi-decent and not-so-tourist-like in the style capital of the world!
It’s common knowledge that Parisian women know the true meaning of effortless style; it was incredibly daunting for us newbie bloggers – planning to showcase the entire trip on our new blog – to ensure that we managed to look somewhat chic throughout the trip. We will admit: it definitely resulted in over-packed luggage for both of us.
Without going into too much detail, we aimed at making sure that we were dressed appropriately for each occasion of our holiday; whether it was climbing the Eiffel Tower, sipping red wine in a Parisian bar or enjoying some casual tapas on the bustling streets of Madrid.
Prior to leaving for our trip, we posted an article on what we would be packing for our trip and – with a year to prepare ourselves for this moment – we have created a photo flash back of what we actually ended up wearing. We posed during some cringe-worthy moments of taking these ‘style’ pics (on that note: how do style bloggers do it all the time?!) in the hope that one day we may end up posting these pics on the blog…
No – we are not fashionistas, but we did have a ball playing real life ‘barbies’ on this trip – we loved paying attention to each outfit and considering the overall look we were trying to achieve. Travelling with our better partners has never let us indulge in make-up, hair and outfit trying on sessions to this extent!
So without further ado – our look-book from the streets of Paris – we would love to know what you think: love the post, or “ladies, don’t go here again!”?
