Look Du Jour: City Slicking


What: H&M suede shorts, Whistles jacket (c/o), scarf & jumper, Pollini boots (c/o), Alice + Olivia bag (c/o), Alberta Ferretti for Cutler and Gross sunglasses (c/o) & Anne Bowes Jewellery necklace.

Where: Paris

As you all undoubtedly know, and are possibly very bored of hearing about, the past fortnight have seen me mincing off to Paris for two whirlwind 24 hour visits. This was perhaps unwise given that I have roughly a month to finish my thesis (#FML) but come on, who says no to swanning around that city? My first jaunt was with the lovely H&M for their fabulous AW14 show at Le Grand Palais. I’ve already regaled the details of the trip at length (catch up here) but after very carefully planning two, in my opinion, banging outfits it seemed silly not to shoot and share them. First up, my day look. I spotted these green suede shorts when I was in H&M back in February and actually used them for the window display I curated. Naturally, I then returned and bought them. Paired with green croc boots and my oversized aviator jacket I dare say the whole thing had a whiff of Phillip Lim AW13 about it. Or at least that’s what I like to think anyway. I won’t lie to you, only taking very high heels with me wasn’t the wisest decision ever especially when it came to making the return journey by which point I was feeling less than fresh following a late night champagne session at Hotel Costes. But pain is beauty after all and any ankle agony inflicted was totes worth it.

Love Ella. X

    You can never say no to Paris and you specially because that’s where your hear lies.

    The good thing is that it’s just 3 hours away. Still on my bucket list and hoping to cross it off by the end of the year (fingers cross).

    H&M’s show was amazing, loved Miranda Kerr’s dress. How does she pull it off every single time?

    I love your croc boots and the leather jacket, screams perfection. Next time remember to slip in some flats Ella :D

      Thanks :) I’m a little obsessed with them even if they’re not exactly comfy x
