Sunday was our busiest day in Paris - I met up with my blogger friends at Laduree, my brother and his girlfriend arrived to spend the week with us and we had friends over for dinner. It was also the day I was the most tired. All of the fun we had on Saturday, running around the city from sandwich shops to my favourite stores to the best patisseries, caught up with me quickly. Suffice it to say, it was one of those days where I stood staring at my closet, knowing I was supposed to put clothes on but without any idea of where to begin an outfit. It's on those days that I rely most on classic basics, like this dace blouse - it's easy, it's comfortable and I knew that no matter what I paired it with, it would look great. That's the essence of effortless dressing, I think - having a wardrobe of pieces that all work together, so that on days when you're not feeling creative, your clothes can do the work for you. With that said, though, accessorising your outfit with a Laduree bag never hurts, either!
