Ahh Paris, the city of love, shopping and best street style imaginary. Parisian girls have got it down to perfection with their effortless ‘I just chucked this together’, but still superbly stylish looks. And here I am in a bodysuit and shorts with a backpack full of items that don’t scream street style. Definitely an uncomfortable feeling, but then again the whole point of this trip was to get out my comfort zone, some I suppose I’m still winning, kinda. Anyone want to send me a parcel of the chicest, on-trend clothes? Pretty please.
3 days in this city and it successfully broke my bank account. But, without a doubt, it was totally worth it. From serene evenings sitting under the Eiffel tower watching it’s light twinkle over us, to exploring behind hidden doors into gorgeous vibrant passageways, Paris lived up to it’s picturesque, timeless beauty.
3 days was not enough. Even if we were here for a week, we’d probably only just scratch the surface of what this city has to offer. From new attractions, so many chic cafe’s to sip coffee, to weaving through cultural markets, it could take lifetime to see all of Paris.
Even though I’m not on a romantic vacation, doing no shopping whatsoever (trying, anyway) and definitely not in my street style element, it’s practically impossible not to fall in love with Paris.
