Miltary details are everywhere at the moment and with Balmain cementing a collaboration with H&M, this further enforced the trend. What I love about this suit in particular is the gold details on the blazer and the fluted hem of this skirt... oh so elegant, plus the wool fabrication is just perfect for Autumn. I wore this outfit in Paris for PFW which was probably not the best time to wear a wool suit and turtle neck during the late summer, but I just knew it would serve me well during the cooler months to come.
Styling military details always works well with stripes and being in Paris definitely gave this ensemble a parisian feel. Mixing with a contrasting print in the leopard clutch and boot duo keeps my look fun and relaxed. To complete of course another fedora to add to my never ending collection, and this one comes in at a mere £29.... J' adore!
Whilst in Paris I stayed at the stunning and unique Napolean Hotel which was a absolute pleasure. Located literally a stone's throw away from the Arc de Triomphe, it's in the ideal location for sight seeing and shopping. I stayed in a complimentary junior suite which consisted of a spacious large bedroom with a king size bed and seating area, a closet to unpack and hang all my outfits plus a ensuite bathroom and separate toilet. Upon arriving to the room I was welcomed with a bottle of champagne and note.
If you love Paris as much as I do then this is definitely the perfect hotel to stay in as the Parisian theme is carried throughout the hotel from the lobby into the bedrooms.
The staff were extremely friendly and polite which truly made my stay in Paris a memorable one. Much needed to ease the hectic scenes of fashion week!
