French Style

I’ve just spent the last ten days in Paris, France. And had a wonderful time. Sometimes tourists get a bad rap from Parisians. Making fun of their white tennis shoes, capri pants and crossover bags. Today in my post I’ve put together some wonderful outfits that even a tourist could pull off in Paris. Enjoy your travels.
