“Paris is not a city, it’s a world.” -King Francois I
On our last full day in Paris, the weather was a little rainy but we still made the most of it running from place to place in between showers. I was very thankful for my Fedora Hat as it is super wide-rimmed so it’s honestly better than any umbrella. I was actually wearing two coats that day (it was freezing!) but took them off very quickly for some photos to show you my new favourite dress from Chicnova. I just absolutely adore this colour at the moment and the embellishment makes it extra pretty. Unfortunately, it seems to now be sold out online but I looked for some similar versions and came across these ones here & here.
We started our day by making a trip to the Paris Saint Germain soccer stadium (bet you didn’t expect that one!!) as Tommy really wanted to see it. I haven’t the slightest interest in soccer but Tommy is actually the most patient boyfriend I could ask for when it comes to taking my photos, so I didn’t mind at all going along with him. It actually ended up being quite interesting! From there, we went to the Eiffel tour to take some outfit photos (couldn’t ask for a better backdrop) and then stopped for a quick lunch. It’s so lovely around this area both during the day and of course at nighttime when the eiffel tour starts to sparkle.
That evening, I was invited along to the Nixon showroom to view their new collection. I have a gold watch (which I never take off) from this brand so it was lovely to get the chance to see the rest of their designs. The office was located in the 10th arrondissement where we found the most amazing restaurant, Cafe Pierre. I’m decor-obsessed so as soon as I saw inside it’s window, I just had to go in. I’d definitely recommend this one! After eating, we visited Pierre Herme for some macaroons (the BEST macaroons in Paris) & then visited Opera and did some window-shopping in the amazing Galeries Lafayette. Most things were slightly above my budget but it’s worth the trip just to see the architecture of the building which is out of this world! We also had a quick look in another very fancy department store, Printemps, which is right next door. That night we ate AGAIN (I’m just hoping that all the eating & walking balanced out!) in a very cute Pizza & Pasta restaurant in Le Marais.
I really hope you’ve enjoyed these Paris Blog Posts so far? Stay tuned for a general ‘Paris City Guide’ post coming up also with tips about the best places to eat, shop, get macaroons, stay, etc.
Hope you’ve all had a lovely Monday!
