a Parisian stroll

I moved to Paris for the next two months and I have been so overwhelmed with everything around me that I couldn’t decide what to write about. You would think that Paris would automatically be inspirational for a fashion blog, but it kind of had the opposite effect-too much of a good thing! 🙂

Well, now I’ve settled in and am really enjoying this truly magnificent city! I must say that the women here are exceptionally beautiful, classy and well-dressed- inspiration from all sides! And there is always something fun to do. If you happen to have a free sunny afternoon here is a suggestion what to do….

You should start at the omnipresent Eiffel Tower and walk down the park. Do not miss an opportunity to take a spin on the carrousel. It is so much fun! (do look outside coz you will get sick, honestly this thing is faster than you think ;))

Cross the Seine and take a walk on the other side. There are nice benches to take a rest and appreciate the scenery.

Then cross Pont Neuf  and marvel at the Notre Dame cathedral.

Voila, a perfect sunny afternoon!

Bags Bags Bags

Yesterday I found my grandma’s collection of bags from the 60′ and 70’s. Let me tell you my grandma had style, and each bag came with matching shoes and gloves (which sadly don’t fit me). For last night I chose the white bag to match my white skirt! In the next few posts, I’ll try to show the other bags as well!

Flea Market Visit

On Sunday I visited the most famous and biggest flea market in Zagreb, called Hrelić. It is a lot of fun since it is very lively and you can buy literally anything- from books, pots, bikes to clothes and accessories. The only two things you need are change and the patience to rummage through piles of stuff. I bought this colorful skirt and a cool vintage watch that I paired up with more modern items such as the white sneakers and a denim shirt.

Military Collar

I love military collars! Such clean-cut lines work especially well with a more quirky patterned skirt to soften the blow.

Also, these “telephone wire” scrunchies are really practical – they look cute as bracelets and you always have something to tie your hair with.
