OOTD: A little nautical nonsense

Hi everyone!

I am back with an outfit that features one of my favourite trends that has been kicking around for the last year or two – nautical and mariner looks. Stripes, blues, reds, blacks and whites with cropped tops and pants – it’s all very fun and comfortable. Considering that the weather in Paris has been beyond beautiful the last couple of days, I have been taking full advantage of not wearing socks or coats, sticking to light cardigans and flats… oh Spring, how happy I am that you are here!

I got this great little shirt from New Look (in the standard size collection), and the pants (which I rolled to give a more cropped look) are from M&S mode.

The navy anchor earrings I bought at a little shop while in Berlin and they have no name or creator on them… mystery earrings.

My bow is from H&M and the black flats are also from New Look (available now!).

So will you be bringing out your Spring wardrobe soon or is it still too cold where you are?

Shoes shoes shoes…

Hey everyone!

So as our cold non-June weather continues here on the Parisian front, I decided to show you the new shoes that I have acquired since being in this fine new country. I love how inexpensive and cute things are here if you know where to look. With a little help from friends and some exploring I have searched out and found some new places. If you are looking for shoes and accessories check out Rue Saint-Denis, there are little boutiques all along that have mostly the same things but run very cheap. Look around first before you buy as you will find that the prices vary by a couple of euros from one store to the next. Ok so enough talking – check these three beauties out!

The first pair – black and white vinyl flats, I found on Rue Saint Denis in a little shop for 9 euros, the second pairs, which look like black men’s dancing shoes, I bought at the popular shoe store, Andre. The third pair were another Rue Saint Denis find and despite their height, they are actually quite comfortable (they cost just under 18 euros – not bad if I do say so myself).  The last pair, I found at New Look for about 29 euros and they feel like fake suede or something of that sort. Since I am still a noob with heels, I will be saving these for special occasions and walks around my apartment for practice. Since it has been humid and rainy and the lineups for change rooms have been horrendous I have taken solace in trying on shoes. I especially like trying on shoes at places where you don’t have to ask for your size. I am getting all giddy about organizing my clothes and shoes in my new apartment next week. I should be moving soon but don’t have a for sure date yet. I’m always up for a day of shopping so if you’re in Paris and want to join me, or me to join you pop me a message at curvykatieblog@gmail.com. (PS I speak French fluently so don’t be shy if you are French! I could always use the practice)

I have more photos to upload so stick around.
