Tuesday Paris Street Fashion
Hola from Espana! For those who have traveled around Europe, you now know how easy and accessible travel here. There is a train,plane or bus to get you to another country faster than finishing your grocery shopping. The best part about this accessible travel is how inexpensive it can be. This week, as i was desperate to feel the sand on my toes from a real beach, I took advantage of a 33 euro plane ticket on Ryanair to Barcelona, Spain.
Only an hour and 20 minute flight from Paris, Barcelona is one of the ideal beach getaways in Europe. It’s stunning colonial architecture, beautiful beaches, parks, lively nightlife and fantastic shopping makes it one of the top summer destinations for all age, especially for the bachelor and bachelorettes.
As the weather was not letting up in Paris I wanted to enjoy some of my beach gear and show off the last of my summer fashion before the year was over. The cold rain in the city has lasted for an unusually long time this summer and I wasn’t able to give my summer wear the proper time they deserved.
This week’s Tuesday Paris Street Fashion brings more Paris street fashion from the road. Highlighting two looks that represent the essential Parisian summer skirts and dresses but giving it the beachy feel we only dreamed about in the city this summer. Bright colors, floral patterns and light fabrics all fit well not only with the women of Paris but in Barcelona as well.
I was extremely impressed with the women of Barcelona. As any beach city, locals have their sandals and dresses ready all year round but I loved the particular style here. Women were always ready for a shopping trip, lunch date or evening out. A lot of tropical floral print dresses, pant suits and skirts were overflowing these gorgeous streets especially in Passage de Gracia.
Passage de Gracia is the host to many high fashion names such as Chanel and Dior but also to some our more affordable brands such as Mango and Zara. If you are a fan like me of these two Barcelona based stores then make the time to spend an afternoon enjoying this fashion for a lesser price. I found all of the outfits I have been eyeing in Paris to be 20 to 30 euro less expensive here in Barcelona. There is so many beautiful things to see here which includes good prices.
If you have not visited Barcelona before, ensure to put it on your European tour. Clean and uniquely designed streets, fantastic sangria, beautiful beaches and so much history, you will make you want to come back again and again. This is one of my favorite European cities and I love it even more knowing it is just a 33 euro plane ticket away.
