Finally, we have arrived at the last look I wore while I ventured around Paris! Before I left, I knew I needed an outfit that was going to keep me cool in 100+ temperatures, but wasn’t going to sacrifice style. A chic mini dress would have been a perfect option for heatwave temperatures and running around the fashion capitol of the world. However, I planned to do a lot of walking, and with that, comes chub rub. I know I could have used an anti chafe balm, but those wear off so quickly on me—especially when it’s so hot outside.
I was so stuck on what to wear that I turned to Dia & Co. and wrote a note to my stylist about my upcoming trip. I told her that I needed something very chic, but practical for me to be in all day, and versatile enough that I could dress it up or down.
And sure enough, Dia & Co. rose to the occasion and sent me a dress that I would have never considered on my own. The Cary Fit and Flare Belted Dress from City Chic was perfect! It wasn’t too flashy, and the length was modest and long enough that I could wear anti chafe rub shorts! And sure enough, when I walked through Montmartre and up to La Maison Rose, the dress didn’t disappoint. I accessorized with this gorgeous Wood You Date Me Bag from Fashion Nova, which fit so nicely. I am so so proud of myself that I didn’t put on sweat pants and a tank top to hike up Montmartre—although that’s all I wanted to do. Honestly, if I go back to Paris, I will allow myself to wear whatever I want—even sweatpants. However, I would have felt really bad if I wore gym clothes during my first trip to Paris only because I have always dreamt of dressing up in this beautiful city and having all of the chic moments.
