Jardin du Luxembourg.

Saturday, 20 October 2012

(Cardigan - Ted Baker, skirt - ASOS, bag - vintage Dior, shoes - Jeffrey Campbell)





Oh, Paris. One minute, you're losing yourself in its labyrinthine streets struggling with the indecision of which patisserie to pick for one's morning croissant (I inevitably visited all of them) only to find that the meticulous selection you deliberated on have been voraciously consumed the next minute. And just a few moments later ... you stumble upon a jardin that happens to have a chateaux and then suddenly, you revert to your halcyon days of youth and pretend that the whole landscape is your backyard (climbing fountains in a whimsical mint skirt is completely normal, oui?). 

.... And that's it. In the course of a few minutes, the innate magic of Paris has stolen my heart once again. 

Have a sparkling weekend, everyone!

Much love, Mandy. xx

  1. My goodness, that mint maxi... you look so gorgeous!! I'd love to be lost in Paris, the congested culture of it all, it really wouldn't pose a problem ahaha. Climbing fountains in a whimsical skirt takes grace and skill, so beyond normal but admirable! I think these photos have captured the resonating essence that Paris tends to leave on everyone, just stunning.
