Lookbook : Colourshocking in Paris

I was recently telling you about the new trend called Colour Shocking (as oppose to Colour Blocking) and promised to give it a try… I even found the perfect place to shoot it : the Parisian tube ! Each station has a different design and some of the colored walls are incredible.

Je vous ai récemment parlé de la mode du “colour shocking” et avais promis de tenter le look très prochainement… C’est désormais chose faite et pendant mon périple parisien j’ai trouvé l’endroit parfait pour les photos : le métro !

– Neon trousers / Pantalon fluo by Zara

– Silk blouse : used to belong to my Mom / Chemisette en soie : Anciennement à ma maman ♥

– Pumps / Ballerines by H&M

– Nail polish / Vernis à ongles by Accessorize

– Tube station / Bouche de métro : Havre-Caumartin, Paris 9

10 photos of Paris my way

I often travel to Paris and so don’t necessarily visit all the expected spots when I’m there. This time I actually would have liked to visit the Tim Burton exhibition, but unfortunately didn’t have time. I did make the most of my stay, however, in my own special way !

I arrived in the evening and shot straight off for my favorite walk from Paris 3ème (photo 1) all the way to Opéra Garnier (photo 2). I then grabbed something to eat in a nearby sea-food restaurant (check out their takeaway booth photo 3). Then I did some nighttime shopping in Monoprix – Mavala top-up time (photos 4) ! The next day I took a stroll across the center at dawn, loving having the city all to myself (photo 5). I even came across a “pop up shop” (photo 6). What a good idea to give smaller brands a bigger chance : ) I came across some beautiful street art that morning too (photos 7, 8, 9) and bought some delish choccy from Newtree (photo 10).
