Last summer I went to Europe and I had the opportunity to pop into some vintage stores a few steps from Paris’s Le mur des je t’aime, the mural with “I love you” written in every language. I wish I could remember the name of the shop, but if you’re familiar with the Montmartre area, you may know exactly where I’m talking about.
Anyways, when it comes to souvenirs I wasn’t interested in knick knacks, keychains, or what have you… I saved some space in my backpack for Parisian clothes, and that’s exactly what I flew back with!
This skirt has a happy floral print that looks great with a detailed blouse or a plain v-neck t-shirt. The skirt lands a couple inches below my knee, which is usually an awkward length for me since I have shorter legs, so I rolled the top a couple inches in and threw a leather belt over my waist. I tucked in this beautiful sleeveless top with a deep blue embroidery which is very European to me, so I thought it suited my skirt well.
This skirt brings such nostalgia to me since I bought it traveling, and I like how I am the skirt’s second (or third.. or forth!) owner who has walked the streets of Paris in it. Did I mention it was only 5 euro? 😉
