Paris Mon Amour


So I've just spent an extended weekend exploring the beautiful streets of Paris - and I am in love!

It has been a couple of years now since I last visited Paris, and I couldn't wait to go back. The fact that I spend most of my days pinning travel inspiration has meant that I have accumulated ~quite~ a large portfolio of Parisian inspo. So in true blogger style, I have a hoard of photography that I will be posting over the next week or so - covering all of the important topics, from my outfit choices to the best hangout spots and restaurants in the city. 

We were really lucky weather-wise, as I had checked my phone before we went (that sounds casual - but I think my updates were hourly) in desperate hope for a sunshine forecast. As luck would have it - this is exactly what we got. Hoorah for sunny strolls and non-frizzy hair!

So it's really rare that I am snapped head to toe in black, right? I definitely tailored my outfit choices to my surroundings. I'm not sure if this was conscious or subconscious. Actually, who am I kidding? 

This frilled dress was ideal for the setting, especially the intricate balconies that lined every street across the city. I am an absolute sucker for a tie waist as I think it can be really flattering (it also gave me the flexibility to loosen after my cheese and wine intake). Sue me. Another confession - this hat was literally glued to my head the whole trip. I genuinely felt like all I needed was a string of garlic around my neck and I would become French. Hey, a girl can dream.

I teamed this cute SilkFred tea dress with my hat for brunch at Angelina. Why we decided that a chocolatier would be the best idea first thing in the day, I just don't know. IT WAS SO GOOD THOUGH. I don't think I have ever tasted hot chocolate like it. If you are visiting Paris I can't recommend this spot enough. It gets fairly busy later in the day but the inside is just like that of a retro musical box. 

I don't think I am quite ready to hang my baker hat up just yet (pun intended) - so stay tuned for more Parisian posts!
