Bonjour, Paris

Bonjour, mon ami!

I went for a little trip to Paris recently to do a bit of book research and otherwise explore the city. It’s only a few hours away from London by train and I don’t go that often so figured I’d go on a little adventure.

I filmed a video for my daily vlog channel (youtube.com/everydayjim) where you can see what I got up to, but for those of you who just want to see what I was wearing, this is the place to be.

This look consists mostly of bits from my #ChapmanXLewis edit in John Lewis.

The coat is a gorgeous, textured, salt’n’pepper epsom that is really easy to wear and will look good on a lot of people. It’s one of those wardrobe staples that looks just as good with knitwear or a suit underneath it.

The jumper is a textured knit from Reiss and the scarf is by Barbour (also in my #ChapmanXLewis edit). It’s super soft and brings a bit of colour to an otherwise fairly muted outfit. Grey is your best friend this season and I’m wearing it twice in this look, so it’s nice to add a little something to break it up.

I got the leather gloves from New York a year or so ago in the sale at Bloomingdales. They are Bloomingdales own brand and are lined with something (I’m not sure what) super soft on the inside.

Both the jumper and the coat are textured and I think it would be quite heavy without the scarf to break it up.

Guess where the boots are from; That’s right, my #ChapmanXLewis edit. They are also Barbour and are very-easy-wear, slip-on Chelsea boots that sway to towards┬áthe more casual end of the spectrum making them perfect for trekking around a city.

The jeans are Levi’s 512’s, a slim taper, also from my Chapman & Lewis edit.

I was actually in Paris for 2 days so have another post to get up soon, until then, Au Revoir.

Thanks for reading,

Jim
