Minimal Paris...

Those that are familiar with Paris will probably know why I'm laughing/nervous in the photo above… 

….I'm stood SMACK BANG IN THE MIDDLE OF CHAMPS ELYSEES!!! I'd do anything for a good shot :-) A massive THANKS to my amazing friend who pretty much laid down for me to get this shot!! 

So back to it… The weather went from muggy to roasting to borderline Baltic during our weekend away… This day had started off fairly warm (obvs) so I opted for the leather skirt, a plain & Other Stories tank and of course, the 'city safe' across body Gucci Disco. The plan for the day was to cover as much of the city as we could… When in Paris, be prepared to walk, a lot! 

**Sorry for the wonky bag placement, we kinda' had to rush these shots for health and safety reasons**

Leather skirt from H&M, similar here // Black Top from & Other Stories, similar here // Sandals from H&M as featured heresimilar here // Bag Gucci Disco, similar here.

The leather skirt was a buy about 18 months ago and it's one of those things that I kept meaning to wear… Now, going into AW14, I'm so pleased I have it as it's a good season staple! 

Paris Tip…Everyone who visits Paris goes to the Eiffel Tower (or it felt like it)… We got there fairly early on a Friday morning and still queued 45 minutes to get the lift up to the 2nd level… (I took the lift due to the Pleurisy issue, I've done the stairs before and would recommend that!!)  

The views are incredible however, we didn't go past this level as the queue to get to the top was insane!! By the time we got to the bottom I'd say the queues were a good 1.5-2 hour wait!!

Get there early!!

Another Paris Tip…The Metro is so stupidly cheap, runs perfectly on time (and regularly), takes you everywhere and is reasonably easy to negotiate!! We bought a 'book' of 10 tickets for around 14€ and then just used one per journey and had some spare…probably should have shared books…

Anyway, Well Done France!

Do you have any Paris tips to share? Have you invested in a leather skirt yet?
