If you were to ask me to list five telltale signs of ‘growing up’, I think that an appreciation for a nice hotel would be at the very top. Gone is my tolerance for a cheap mattress and ugly carpets, replaced with a desire for eight pillows, unnecessarily large bathrooms and plush dressing gowns. I am old now, and I find as much joy in a nice hotel as I do in the city I am visiting.
With that in mind, Georgia and I booked ourselves on the Eurostar and popped across the channel for a night in Paris at the beautiful new Hoxton Hotel. Needless to say I loved our ‘biggy’ room (we got upgraded!) very much and would move in tomorrow if I could, so before we cracked open the wine and chucked our stuff everywhere I popped on this lovely new frock to take some photos. I was lusting over a similar Topshop Boutique dress a few months ago but didn’t want to shell out £160 on it, and this £28 version from Nasty Gal has filled the hole nicely. I paired it with some new lace up ankle boots and a bunch of necklaces for the perfect dressy-but-not-too-dressy dinner-and-drinks outfit. Check out what we got up to in Paris in Georgia’s vlog, if you like!
