My Travel Wardrobe Gets A Workout, And Reinforcements…
Have I mentioned that it was HOT 🔥 in Paris?? I managed to do a little shopping as the summer sales had begun. But the heat wilted our resolve to explore much beyond some targeted shops.
Luckily, I stumbled across those linen pants I’m wearing above, and they were lifesavers! They are from Caroll, a French brand that has reasonably-priced classic-leaning styles. (Sadly not available online in the US.) The shirt is a few years old, from Eileen Fisher. It also helped keep me from sweltering.
We arrived in London on Friday afternoon, to temperatures about 15F below what we’d left in Paris. For dinner out to a nice restaurant, I wore pieces from my travel wardrobe, freshened with a pair of red sandals I’d picked up on sale at Robert Clergerie in Paris.
Yesterday we met Josephine of Chic At Any Age and her husband for lunch, a Sunday Roast at Blacklock Shoreditch. Food was terrific, and the ambience was casual and fun, if a bit noisy. We’re meeting up again today to take some photos. Yes, the bag is new, another Paris purchase. (I’d had this one on my wish list for some months. Prices are lower in Paris, plus I get the VAT refund.)
We’re at that point in our trip where we’re trying to squeeze as much as we can into the last couple of days, so posts will be short until I’m back home. I’ll be recapping my Red Leopard session in a few days, as I have dozens of photos to go through. I can’t wait to tell you about it, but I’ll drop a hint…those red shoes are 👍 in my new palette!
