Pariser Platz



Jeans, Primark
Bretong T-shirt, Primark
Eiffel Tour Print Bandeau Top, ASOS
Shoes, Primark


LOOK. SUNLIGHT.  Sorry... Didn't mean to get quite so overexcited. I actually don't really like spring, it's my least favourite season, mostly because it's usually so wet here in Cumbria, and highly unpredictable, but the one good thing is that I find it 100 times easier to get out of bed, because my bedroom window is East facing, I wake up with the sun. And it being easier to get out of bed, means I tend to get up a bit earlier, not hours or anything, but an extra 15 minutes or half an hour, which means I have time to take outfit pictures.
(Also, I know it's not what you might usually call a 'good picture', but I couldn't resist sharing as I loved the brightness of the light streaming through the window)

I wore this for a day at uni, as I now only do one day per week of work experience meaning only one 14 hour day per week and I get to go to uni in my usual casual clothes one day per week now.

My trusty Primark t-shirt has now been tumble dried a few times, and therefore is not long enough to wear with anything that isn't high waisted, luckily I also remembered this bandeau top was kicking around in my wardrobe and being as it's practically dress length, it provides the perfect solution, and a nod to a city I have yet to visit.

Despite speaking French, the word Paris (with English or French pronunciation) always reminds me of Pariser Platz (Pah-riss-uh Plait-ts) in Berlin. Perhaps because I've actually been to Pariser Platz... but whatever. For a cool but bright (it didn't last, I got rained on walking home from the Station that night...) uni day, this was a good outfit. Oh, and I'm looking down and wearing glasses because I felt horrific from a cold-y thing, and the bags under my eyes were oh so helpfully magnified by my glasses, great.

Are you a lover of spring? Or like me do you prefer the predictability of autumn and winter? Also, Scottish readers, or just anyone from/living North of Cheshire will probably enjoy this little joke, c/o my Dad

Scotland has 2 seasons. June and Winter.

the eiffel tower print is awesome!

Caroline Mary said...

Absolutely spot on, although June can be a tricky month too, weather-wise! Good thinking with the bandeau, looks great x

Rachael said...

I'm much more a Spring person than any other season - something about seeing all the flowers blossoming again and the waiting for the summer that gets me excited!

Thank you, I've had this top ages, and I still love the print. 

Chloe said...

Thank you.

Chloe said...

Thanks, an old faithful from ASOS.

Chloe said...

Thank you, it was a light bulb moment with the t-shirts. June can be an absolute nightmare. My birthday is at the beginning of the month and it can be 25+ degrees, a week later it can be pouring rain...

Chloe said...

I like the flowers, but summer is always such a let down. And it's so unpredictable here. Pessimistic, much. Me?

I adore your stripes mixed with the Eiffel tower, very French inspired look; super cute <3

Love that eiffel tower print! So cute how it's just a-poking out the bottom :) I love Spring as it means I can get gardening! When does it stop being wet in Cumbria?xxx

Chloe said...

Today has been the perfect example of tricky- I was sweating in a dress and jacket leaving the house this morning, and shivering in the very same on the return journey 9 hours later. 

Chloe said...

Thank you. I was feeling the French theme in a big way, but only when I looked at the pictures and realised what I'd put together. 

Chloe said...

Gladly Paris, but my experience elsewhere has not been favourable. I'd rather take you to my beloved Leipzig! 

Chloe said...

Thank you mon petit chou chou. If I were a gardening fan, maybe I'd get into spring. For now I'm resigned to swapping between sweating, shivering, dripping and dehydrating. It doesn't stop raining in Cumbria. It's kind of always there... in the background almost.
