So even though it is only January and the freezing cold has us paralyzed every time we step outside, you do need to be thinking about open shoes like these. They are selling out now. So if you want the perfect Laurence Dacade sandal or de platform flats from Calvin Klein or Steve Madden, you need to act now. And trust me, you will want to have them when Spring finally blossoms.

You can sigh in relief though, because your legs can stay wrapped up. Do invest in a pair of flared jeans (for example these from J Brand) and make sure you own the perfect pair of cropped trousers. Preferably black of course, but you can keep going with all colors or prints even. Last but not least, the slim fitted black jeans, a staple no one can go without. I don’t care if you already own one, it probably has been worn so much it needs to be replaced ;-).

Let’s talk bags. Nowadays they tend to reside under my eyes. All the more reason to distract from those bags with some eye-catchers (ooooh the irony) that you carry in your hand or around your shoulders. The mini bags will reign this coming season, which means we need to drastically cut down on junk we carry around. But with beauties like these, from Calvin Klein, Zign and Sophie Hulme, we’ll gladly start sifting through the mess that weighs us down every day.

Let me know what you think…

The almighty Sacré-Cœur.

It is always impressive to look at. Day and night, during a hot summer day or a foggy Sunday morning in fall. Walking through small alleys or standing on top of a Parisian building, it rises over the city and gives it even more grandeur.

The Sacré-Cœur.

Being a relatively young church, the construction was only finished in 1914, it is located on the picturesque hill of Montmartre in the north of Paris and landmarks the highest point of the French capital.

This Parisian Postcard was taken from insight the Musée d’Orsay which is famous for its collection of impressionist paintings. Many of these impressionist, like Monet and Renoir, actually painted the sceneries at the hill of Montmartre just before or during the construction of the great Basilica.

Many of these artist gathered on Place du Tertre, a small, beautiful square near then construction site of the Sacré-Cœur. Probably not surprisingly with such a great history the Place du Tertre has become a tourist magnet, just like the Sacré-Cœur itself.

Definitely worth a visit when you are Paris. However for those who do not fancy queuing up with other tourist to climb the stairs to the church, it is also admirable from many locations in Paris, especially on the right bank.
