I was lucky enough to meet an amazing Paris fashion blogger on my last walk around Paris. The outfit that Anne-Laure, the founder of the blog Adenorah, wore on the day I met her was no exception to her great style.
Her Oakley blue reflective sunglasses were gorgeously futuristic. These shades are an excellent way of adding a flash of color where you wouldn’t expect it. I saw a few mirrored aviators on my walks, and they all worked best when worn with complementary pale or muted colors.
Anne-Laure wore a hue that complemented the blue in her trousers and of course her achingly cool navy blue pedicure. Red lips added a pop of contrast, and the white shirt sat nicely underneath her long ombré hair, another trend that looks like it is here to stay for a while. My favorite piece was her Zara shoes: so chic in black yet perfect for letting your toes breathe in summer and for walking easily around a big city.
I also saw another pair of shoes perfect for the sun: cork wedges in tan leather, paired with a tangerine manicure and ever-popular skinny jeans. Wedges are a beautiful but comfortable alternative to spindly heels, and this pair came from Oysho, a shop that sells mostly lingerie, with locations throughout Paris.
Summer has hit the city, and Parisians are hitting the streets in beautiful creations, all as polished as ever.
