Harbour, Kites, Cakes and Cathedral

PALEFor our final full day away, I wore the white Gap 1969 legging jeans, ivory Mango linen jumper layered over a Gap viscose tee, Hermès gavroche, vintage Gucci belt and Sam Edelman patent slingbacks. We had a big breakfast again, packed, checked out and headed straight back to the harbour. PALE2Details.

      Thank you so much for dropping by and comlimenting! This style is from more than a year ago and the most similar are the legging jeans they offer now. I’m aiming to find some in black.
