A Touch of Paris with Blue Illusion!

FullSizeRender 2Stepping into a Blue Illusion store truly feels like a Touch of Paris! The company was grounded in Australia over 15 years ago by Danny & Donna Guest who spend alot of the year up in France gathering inspiration for their collections. This has given inspiration for todays post where my Mum and her dear friend Anne pose for my camera wearing delicious Blue Illusion outfits, pretending to visit a different part of Paris for each outfit. Come and join us on our trip through Paris and be inspired – smile!

1) Visiting Le Sacre Coeur

It’s a lovely sunny day with plenty of walking involved so a good hat is a necessity:


My Mum wearing; Sleeveless Beaded Tunic, Cropped Pull on Pant,  Zoe Flat Shoes, Jaffa Necklace, Weekend Cross Body Travel Bag, Hat also Blue Illusion but currently not available online.


Anne is  happy with her outfit as she picked up some of it on sale already; Centre Trim Shell Top, Pants Blue Illusion from store, Bag same as above, Necklace store only, Shoes Ballerina Flats.


Falling in love with a different hat and top, Anne decides to change her mind last minute – smile – woman’s prerogative right? Janelle Sun Hat, Top and Necklace found in store only.

2) Loving Sweet Treats our next stop is the original Laduree cafe at Madeleine IMG_6782

Time to get out those pretty dresses.


Mum’s wearing a super Pretty Layered Dress, Alegra Crossover Sling Peep Espadrilles, Bag and Necklace also Blue Illusion.


Anne has a super pretty Aztec Maxi Dress on with Pearly Whites Necklace, Bag and Shoes also Blue Illusion.

3) It’s Sunday so we’re doing a Boat trip along the River Seine

Both Mum and Anne literally jumped for joy when I told them this was our next treat 😉


Mum in the Long Midi Dress, Anya Espadrille, Hat and Necklace also Blue Illusion.


Anne wearing the same dress, different colour and has decided to throw over a Long Line Knit just in case there’s a bit of a breeze.

A big thanks to both Anne and my Mum for the great modelling job you did and your patience! xx

Hope all you lovely readers enjoyed our little fashion trip through Paris and do stay tuned, you never know there may be more trips to come as the year progresses!
