Citrus-chic! If this lemon print midi dress doesn’t screamsummer, then I don’t know what does. This fresh mellow yellow ensemble was perfect for a casual out and about day in Paris. I paired it with my light blue Prada crossbody bag for a fun pop of color!
On my recent trip, I visited the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens and walked the lovely Seine River with my family. The weather was fairly mild in May but the sun shining made all the difference. I always found sightseeing in Paris to be very charming. The buildings are historic yet elegant. Sometimes you can’t help yourself but ooohhh and ahhhh at the exquisite architecture. I also love to people watch. I noticed that most Parisians have an impeccable sense of style that is effortless yet composed. There’s no denying that Paris is simply a timeless chic city, one of the many reasons why I am so enamored by it. ~b
Of all of my European travels thus far, I think I will always have a soft spot for France. Perhaps, it’s because I’ve been blessed to be able to experience so many beautiful places in this lovely country. From idyllic beach days at the French Riviera to wandering the rolling countryside. I adore and feel a connection to France.
This past May was my third time visiting Paris. However, it was my first time being here with my family. In some ways, it was kind of surreal. I never thought I would be able to take my parents on a trip like this, or at least at 25. The older I get, the more I just want to give back to them. They made a lot of sacrifices for me growing up so they rarely allowed themselves the leisure of a vacation.
During our Paris trip, it was the 130th birthday of the Eiffel Tower! In honor of the anniversary, there was a laser light show put on at night. The colors would “dance” and change with the rhythm on the tower. It was a really cool celebration to witness! Unfortunately, I didn’t get any good pictures at the event because of lighting….but I did get my family up at the crack of dawn to take some photos at the Eiffel Tower. ( See my mother and me down below! ) Early mornings at the Jardins du Trocadero are the best times to take pictures of the iconic structure without people in the background.
All in all, I love the city of lights and it means the world to be able to enjoy it with my family. I know Paris is a destination that I will continue to return to in the future and I can’t wait until then. ~b
