Paris & Rome Street Syle

Bonjour! Hola! Buongiorno! I’m back from my dream trip to Paris, Barcelona and Rome. It was an amazing adventure visiting my daughter who is studying this semester in Rome. She met me in Paris and we were able to see all of the sites on our wish list while also taking time to just sit and observe everything around us whenever possible, including the fashion. Many cafe stops throughout our days provided these opportunities. I tried out the role of street style photographer and it’s not easy! You have to be quick and obscure which is tough to do without a zoom lens. Hence the reason my shots are mainly from the back. Nevertheless, I think you’ll see what we found to be common themes among the women’s outfits. Always perfectly tailored coats or leather jackets, lots of black, gray or muted tones, always a chic scarf draped just so and for footwear, we saw booties about 60% of the time, tall boots 30% and ballet flats or sneakers 10%. The sneakers were usually black Nikes or the Adidas Stan Smith. (see below) By the way, my travel dates were March 18th-April 6th and the temps varied from 42 degrees to mid 60’s. My first day in Rome was rainy so I wore my black trench, scarf, black leggings and black booties and did not carry my camera so I definitely fit right in and was flattered when Romans spoke to me in Italian. (I’m sure my Italian heritage had something to do with it too!) I just wish I would have been able to reply in Italian. ┬áCiao! {click on pictures to enlarge}
