Flying to Paris was a spontaneous decision on my husband and my part as we disliked the idea of travelling on a plane for more than ten hours. Nevertheless, we decided to go ahead with the trip as my interest to visit was piqued after reading about Paris from posts such as this one from Kayture. After about sixteen hours of total travelling time, we finally reached our cosy one bedroom apartment rented through Airbnb! I have hoped to blog about my trip sooner but as it took me a couple of days to recover from jet lag and getting accustom to our new environment, I was only able to work on the first post today!
A casual plaid button-down top with a comfortable pair of pants is my idea of a great weekend outfit! To add a unique touch to the whole look, I matched this ensemble with a wide fabric belt for a more fitted silhouette.
The top is actually part of a two-piece set consisting of a matching skirt which I had previously featured here and here. As I find that putting these two plaid pieces together may be a little overwhelming visually, I prefer to style them separately with other designs.
Wishing everyone a great weekend and hope you like this look! See you again next week!
I am someone who does not believe in spending a fortune to look stylish so I do not own many luxury brand products. Those that I do own are usually gifts from family and the Burberry polo top featured in this post was a Birthday present.
The plaid trend is all the rage this season and I have seen this print on all sorts of fashionable items including tops, bottoms, scarves, bags and gloves. However, I have yet to see plaid on just the collars of a top and I really like it that this piece is designed this way. It exudes more of a minimalist vibe compared to a fully plaid top.
To create an overall feminine style, I used a silk scarf to tie a bow over the top’s collar and paired it with a pretty plaid skirt which was also featured here.
