Parisian Chic – Street Style Summer 2016

parisian chic stella asteria

I am so excited about posting my first blog post in Paris! If a year ago one could tell me that today I would be doing this, I would have found it too amazing to be true! Yet it happens. 🙂

Oh Paris! There are no words to describe how I feel about this city and the beautiful memories I have there. Those of you who follow me on Instagram and Snapchat, probably have seen photos of my impromptu trip to Paris last week. It was a quick, yet so refreshing escape from work during the high season in Mykonos. I found a new reason to recall that the best things in life are the ones you didn’t make plans for, don’t you agree?

I was really looking forward to wear my high heels and walk jaunty in the streets of Paris center. The first day I wore this look to go for shopping and to surprise a few friends. A pleated skirt with a camisole top is a perfectly Parisian chic outfit. Actually two French women stopped while we were taking photos, and told me how “très chic” I was. What a compliment, coming from two of the most elegant ladies I have ever seen! 🙂

[quote]“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”
― Coco Chanel[/quote]

This pleated skirt is one of my favorite pieces on my vintage collection. I really love how new it looks and its satin trim that adds a touch of elegance and shine. I dressed down my look by wearing a denim jacket over my shoulders, and accessorized with my Chanel boy bag, and these minimal Stuart Weitzman sandals. Very Parisian chic right? And there’s another outfit below so keep scrolling!

Later that day we went for a stroll around the city, followed by early dinner at one of our favorite Parisian restaurants. As the lack of sleep of the past few days had started taking its toll on me at that point, all I needed was to wear the comfiest outfit that I could. This floral ensemble from Zara (also worn separately as a dress here) was the perfect choice as it is a super comfy pajama outfit, yet a bit more tailored. I paired it with my Adidas Stan Smith sneakers and my new Chloé Faye bag, and voila! My Instagram went on fire with that look! 🙂

    how amazing two French women actually stopped to compliment your first outfit and tell you it is tres chic. That’s priceless! That first combo is really everything I think of when I think of Parisian chic…you rocked that casual yet feminine, relaxed yet dressed up vibe!!!!!!!

    I’m simply in love with the pattern of your second outfit….both of these outfits are visually stunning.

    …and is there a better background than Paris!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    exceptional photography!

    You have such amazing fashion taste! I’ve never seen a jumpsuit like that before, and it looks amazing! I have to agree – the first is very trés chic!

    I’ve always wondered how fashion bloggers took their photos… Did someone else take your photos or did you bring a tripod?

      Hi Lizzie, thank you for stopping by and for your kind words. Actually my fiancé takes my photos. Although he is not a professional photographer, no one has ever taken better photos of me so far! 🙂
      We do have a tripod but don’t know how to use it yet! Many bloggers use their tripod and take amazing photos. If you need further information/advice please feel free to email me.
      Have a great day!

    Absolutely in love with both of your outfits!!! I love your style: feminine and chic but with a playful and casual touch to make it wearable for every day! You pictures are also very beautiful!! Xx Susanne – http://bagatyou.com
