“Wanna know what heaven is? Feeling the sun shine on you….in Paris.” -Rachel Zoe
We were so lucky with the weather on our second day in Paris. It was such a beautiful day with lots of sunshine, but also very very cold! If you’re planning a trip to Paris anytime soon, make sure to bring lots of layers. I wrapped up in my Chicwish Houndstooth coat and vintage faux fur collar. I just adore these type of collars as they really can dress up any type of coat. I have my eye on some similar blue & pink ones on Asos at the moment.
Day 2 was another jam-packed day as we squeezed in so much sight-seeing (and also some vintage shopping!). We started our day with some espressos at the famous Cafe de Flore on Boulevard Saint-Germain which you may have seen me post a picture of the outside on my Instagram (@retroflame). This little spot is definitely a must-see as it genuinely is like something out of a movie scene! Afterwards, we had a quick look in Le Bon Marche where I fell in love with so many Sophie Hulme Bags. From there, we got the metro to Anvers and walked up the big hill to Montmartre. I think that this was definitely my favourite part of the whole trip as the views at the top were just breathtaking and it was lovely to just sit on the steps and take it all in. The whole area of Montmartre is full of cute cafes and even some vintage shops so it’s an area I would definitely recommend visiting. We ate lunch in the adorable Le Maison Rose (the pink & green building in the pictures above) and then wandered around for a little while more.
We then had a quick look in Le Forum des Halles -a huge shopping centre, before making our way to the famous Angelina, another Paris must-see. We picked up some sweet treats and hot chocolate and took a quick break across the street in Tuileries Garden. This garden is truly beautiful and as the sun was just setting, it was the perfect location to take some outfit photos which you can see above. After we had recharged a little (SO much walking), we made our way to the area of Le Marais -which is known for it’s quirky & vintage shops. I think I visited about 7-8 vintage shops in total (which I’ll leave links to in my Paris City Guide Post) and I picked up two really cute vintage clutches and a dark blue faux fur collar. While in this area, we also saw Hotel de Ville where there was an ice-skating rink just outside.
That evening we ate in Chatelet (a really good area at nighttime) and then went for cocktails at the very stylish Kong. It’s definitely not the most inexpensive of bars but it was such a lovely treat while we were in the city :)
Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend!
