Montmartre in August was beautiful.
I always love this part of Paris. Apart from the tourist crowd around La Basilique du Sacré Coeur, the rest of Montmartre behind the Basilique was gracefully quiet on a summer afternoon in August, where I walked uphill to rue Caulaincourt to see all the beautiful stairs and passageways.
I never thought of wearing suede in summer weather, but I did. (En plus I had never worn any piece of suede on me before, except for my shoes!) I always found suede a little bit sauvage, this material contradicts tremendously with my love for elegant flowing garments.
But who said suede couldn’t be elegant? When it’s loose-fitting, minimal and no fringes 🙂 I love the simple cut of this top, suede is such an unusual good idea whereas it is normal to do a minimal cut like this on cotton or neoprene.
It couldn’t be anywhere better than Montmartre for me to experiment with this nature colour palette: grass green, brown, yellow and beige. I’m sure this palette would work very well if your skin has a bit of colour, like me in these photos which resulted from lots of tanning effort this summer. (or even better on darker skin tone)
I hope you enjoy these photos of spontaneous moments I caught on this beautiful afternoon: A little train passing through, colourful doors and walls, bicycles on a side of a passageways, fruits and flowers hiding in a private garden, ambiance of a leisurely summer afternoon in Montmartre….
