{ Gardens of Versailles: Trench coat, Bomber jacket & Lace skirt }

By Thursday, June 2, 2016 29

Ann Taylor khaki trench coat, how to layer with a trench coat and skirt, lace pencil skirt, Adidas 'Stan Smith' sneakers with skirt, Brahmin 'Carrie' crossbody bagDuring the second half of our trip to France, we stayed with family friends in the town of Chambourcy, which is about a twenty-minute drive outside of Paris. Their home happens to be conveniently located near the Palace of Versailles, which was on our list of places to see. My husband had already been to Versailles and was really hoping I’d get to see the inside of the palace, but since there was a line of people that was at least a few hours wait when we arrived, we decided to tour the gardens instead (which still took all morning because the grounds are huge!)

I love layered looks, though, so I think this ended up being better than I originally planned. Palace of Versailles Paris France, travel blogger, what to see in Paris FranceThis shows part of the palace facing the gardens (unfortunately way too enormous to be entirely captured with our camera lens!)Ann Taylor khaki trench coat, trench coat with popped collar, cream lace pencil skirt outfit, layered spring outfit with trench coatBrahmin 'Carrie' crossbody bag linen melbourne, Ann Taylor khaki trench coatThis textured bag from Brahmin completed my neutral outfit and fit right in with the elegant garden setting.

As a wine lover, one of my favorite statues was Bacchus surrounded by grapes (top right).

    Okay, I am seriously in love with that outfit! It is beautiful, every layer! You look amazing! Also, it looks like it was wonderfully not crowded when you went (at least in the garden area!) Your pictures are amazing!! I remembered one of the things I learned when I visited was back in the day, when they entertained guests, the servants would run to every fountain and turn it on and then turn it off and run to the next because there wasn’t actually enough water pressure for all of them at once. It’s a beautiful place! (SO many fountains!)

      So sweet, Serein…thank you! We did get lucky because most of the people were waiting to get inside and we decided to explore the gardens before it got busier. Isn’t it incredible how many fountains there are? The musical fountain was pretty neat, too!

    OMG Meagan, the gardens of Versailles are gorgeous. You always have the prettiest locations. I must say neutrals, nudes and creams have never looked more perfect. This outfit is nothing short of gorgeous. I love that you chose sneakers, too.
