Crowned as one of the most beautiful palaces in the world to visit, Versailles Palace is definitely a true gem. Known for it's sumptuous and lavish rooms where each room was crafted uniquely to suit the needs of the French Monarchy, this palace has been made into a museum where thousands of tourists visit daily situated in the outskirts of Paris. As this being my first outfit post (In case you haven't noticed, Eli has been doing all the outfit posts), what could be more perfect than having it in the beautiful Versailles?
Scarf: A gift from a friend/ no brand
Leggings and Boots: Topshop
*note to my fellow readers: my hands are in my pockets in basically all the photos because the weather was so cold that if I lifted my hands out of my pockets just for a few minutes, they would feel extremely numb- this is not me trying to do somewhat of an awkward pose haha.*
As for my outfit, this was the best I could do to keep warm in the absolute freezing weather of -2 ( This may seem average to you, but coming from a tropical country where it averages around 40 degrees, I felt like a waddling penguin lost in Antarctica). I love my newly acquired coat from Asos, which is currently one of my favourite online stores to shop +shipping is free (double bonus). This coat was my life savior around Paris, and without out I really don't know how I could have survived. I opted for subdued colours in my look as my coat had dark tones of black and brown and with brighter jeans and shoes, the outfit would look almost tacky and overly bright. Although my outfit was quite toned down, I could resist adding a pop of colour to brighten up the mood. This is definitely something magical about this location- matching soft hues of pink adorn the marble pillars and checkered black and white tiles, I'm sure even Grace Coddington would pick this location as a photoshoot for Vogue.
+There will be several more posts of Paris to come!
