A Day in Pink City

So, yesterday myself and my friend Kate, who's back home over here for Easter, went galavanting in Toulouse for the afternoon. For those who don't know, Toulouse is a French city located in the south-west, aptly named 'La Ville Rose' for its famous pink stone buildings. The weather's so hot at the moment so I was able to go out in public with bare legs for the first time this year. Not bad for March. First of all, we went to Nespresso to stock up on capsules and get our caffeine hit in the process. Then we stormed the shops. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by Zara, in years of shopping there I've never been as impressed as I am this season, they've absolutely nailed S/S 2012 on the head. The racks are filled with pastel hues, delicate white lace and broderie anglaise which are near identical to the current Louis Vuitton collection. I need some mint green pieces in my life right now.

 We took lots of snaps and cooled off with some refreshing kiwi and sanguine sorbet. Bloody tourists. I was wearing a simple outfit, teaming my white, buttoned Zara shirt with some loose, high-waisted grey silk shorts, metallic leather sandals, dove grey Longchamp tote and Ray Ban cat eye sunglasses.

I just hate Kate, putting me to fashion shame on my own blog, how dare she. Bringing sexy back in her new net-a-porter dress.

    1. Yes! So good this season. I've never been as enamoured with pastels as I am right now, they remind me of Jackie O. And thankyou :)
