Our trip to Paris

If you are like me, the thought of Paris pops into your head daily. When planning a month long trip to Europe, Paris was the first destination that we knew we wanted to visit. I had been years before while in high school and Thomas had never been, so I couldn’t wait to share it with him!

Everything about Paris is so romantic- the charming cafés lining the streets, the vintage attired street performers playing French tunes, the abundance of marble, chandeliers and antiques, the wine and never ending delicious treats, the museums and impeccably designed gardens, the list goes on and on. But make sure to do yourself a favor while in Paris and throw out any diet that you might have- bring on the baguettes, crepes and escargot (maybe not the escargot, but you get the point).

You could easily spend months exploring Paris since there is so much to see and do. This can make it very overwhelming, so planning ahead allows you to utilize your time wisely and see as much as you possibility can. We researched and researched so much before we left for our trip and planned our days around which areas we wanted to spend the most time in like Le Marais, St. Germain and Champs Elysées. It was so much fun to meet up with Carin from Paris in Four Months and have her capture this embroidered cream dress and this lace purple dress in true Parisian fashion.
