One of our very favorite things to do in Paris was to shop the street markets. You could find everything you could ever want at the market - from fresh fruits & vegetables at the produce market to vintage trinkets and furniture at the flea market. People watching at the market was a sport in and of itself - so it was de rigeur to dress appropriately. For an afternoon shopping the market, the key was comfortable chic - easy silhouettes and shoes that wouldn’t kill your feet. Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with a blouse that makes a statement - a colorful, abstract print blouse that sets the cheerful tone for the entire look.
2. Slip on a maxi skirt for a look that’s effortlessly chic.
3. Grab an oversized tote (don’t you love the classic mini-stripe?) and shoes that you can walk in (the wedge heel makes these heels more comfortable).
4. Add your final flourishes - a pair of oversized sunglasses and a breezy scarf. Tie the scarf to your tote when you walk out of the house; if it gets too windy, you can always use it to tie your hair back.
