If you are a fan of my blog, and have read my Top 3 Destinations post, you will already know that I love Paris. So when I heard Travel Supermarket are looking for bloggers to create a look for one of five different destinations, and one was a parisian theme, I had to take part. The prize is a trip to the location you have created a look for & £200 spending money (to spend on the outfit – eek).

I choose to work with a monochrome trend, and whats more parisian than stripes? I picked a basic striped dress from Topshop and also a pinafore. I have mixed feelings on pinafores, I probably wouldn’t wear one in the UK, but Paris definitely. It’s a cute preppy item and it dresses the outfit down, for a day of sightseeing. For a night time look, I’d dump the pinny and pop on some chunky heels. As you can see, for the daytime look, I’ve picked a pair of white boots which compliment the dress. I think these boots will also look great with black skinnies!

I choose to inject a pop of colour by choosing a red half pint bag. The closest nail varnish match was Chanel’s ‘617 – Holiday’ – how apt of me! When I see moustaches, I think of a little french waiter. Like the ‘Go Compare’ man, however I’ll hush on that, seeing as thats an indirect competitor of Travel Supermarket.  So yes, moustaches = Paris.

I would love to see some other submissions, so comment me below with your Travel Supermarket entry. If you would like to take part visit: http://www.travelsupermarket.com/c/holidays/worldwide-wardrobe/

My Favourite Places

Dubai Burj Khalifia

1. View from Burj Khalifa, Dubai

This is the view from the tallest building in the world, which overlooks the Dubai skyline. The observatory deck is on the 124th floor of 160 levels, so the view is out of this world, quite literally. The building stands at 828 metres, over double the size of the Empire State, New York. If you don’t mind heat, or heights, Dubai is for you! Tom Cruise was seen swinging from the Burj Khalifa in the newest Mission Impossible. It without a doubt, is my number one location!

Paris

2. Padlocks on Lovers Bridge over Seine River, Paris

Paris is known for the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Arc de Triomphe, but what’s more romantic than the Padlocks on Lovers Bridge? Its the perfect place for those who love everything to do with love. It was a full gone conclusion, before even crossing the bridge that I just had to have our names padlocked on. It’s just so cute seeing the amount of padlocks and lovers out there. A little bit mushy of me, but I just love this bridge. I am really eager to go back, just to find our padlock 2 years on. That in itself, may take days.

Times Square

3. Times Square, New York

My last location is Times Square, as there is nowhere in the world, in my opinion that has a bigger buzz. I loved the large billboards, bright lights, amazing restaurants and foremost, the view. It’s a great place to just stand on the viewing platform and people watch. The crowd is made up of New Yorkers and visitors. I think there was just something truly magical about Times Square.

So that’s my top 3 locations, what’s yours?
