Graffiti + Sequins

Bonjour de Paris! I’m now on the second half of my vacation in France. Even though these pictures were taken at home, I feel they have a European vibe because of the location. I know that when you think of Paris you probably start imagining all the super chic places, but if you’ve been to neighbourhoods that aren’t in the centre you’ll know that Paris can be just as gritty as it is glamourous. I guess you have to see it to believe it but basically I’m talking about all of the street art/graffiti.

In Canada (or at least in the cities I’ve seen) there is only a tiny amount of it compared to European cities, and it often gets removed. I absolutely adored all of the street art in Barcelona, I think it gives the city a lot more character! This warehouse is pretty much the only place in Vancouver with so much graffiti. When you’re there it looks like a little street just covered in it! I love coming here because not only does it look really cool, it’s also across from the most awesome gelato place in town. In fact, I never would have known about this spot if it wasn’t for La Casa Gelato!

It’s in an industrial part of town where the style is obviously very laid back, so I opted for a simple crop top and shorts combination. I never like being completely plain though, which is why I also wore my matte black sequin bomber jacket. I don’t always like wearing sequins during the day because they can be a bit much, but because these sequins are matte they aren’t too in-your-face. And to me, bombers are the most casual of all the jackets. What do you think of wearing sequins during the day?

    Cool outfit, it’s urban with just the right amount of glam (the graffiti background is so apt!). And I really like your hair!
    I’m not a sequins gal myself, but I do like it on others provided it’s not too precious. Your combo here is unusual, which I really like 🙂

      Thanks! I like sequins as long as they’re not too shiny or bright, which is why I really love the bomber – just the right amount of shine!

    Just wanna note: As I was hitting the comment button on the previous post I saw you liked my instagram pic at the same time. Funny! No? OK!! HAHA.

    I love this bomber. Bombers are usually more laid-back but this one is the perfect amount of chic and laid back!!

      Hahaha what a coincidence! Thanks! Yeah, I had to have this one because it’s so unique and it can easily be dressed up or down! x

    Really love this look of yours! So city chic and young! Is that tattoo a dragon? Very cool! Enjoy your vacation in Pairs! 🙂

    By the way, I started my own link up and it will be every Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop by! 🙂

      Thanks! The tattoo is actually a unicorn, the head is cut off by my shorts 🙂

      Haha I love your confidence! Thanks x

      Thanks! It’s actually a backpack 🙂

      Thanks! Tbh I find that nowadays style is getting less and less location-specific. I think because we all see the same images on instagram, blogs, etc people around the world are dressing more similarly!

    That’s a really nice look! Hope you enjoy Paris. I’ve never seen such a cool place there (and i’m french!), just quite posh as we imagine Paris.
    Btw love your tattoo !

      Cet endroit est au Canada en effet, mais c’est un endroit rare a trouver ici. J’ai pense plutot a Barcelone ou il y a de graffiti partout, mais j’en ai vu en peu a Paris aussi 🙂 Merci! x
