Our third day in Paris was a little slow to start after our extremely long and tiring second day. We had a pretty full day planned for this day as well but ended up skipping a couple of spots on our list. It was the best thing we could have done. We still ended up seeing quite a bit and wearing ourselves out again but we did manage to sit, people watch, and take in the city at a more relaxed pace. And we’ll just have to go back to see what we missed!
What could be better than a spur of the moment trip to Paris? I have always wanted to go to Paris. Growing up, it seemed like such a beautiful city full of glamorous people doing glamorous things. I couldn’t imagine a place much more different than the Phoenix desert. I watched all of the French movies (A Very Long Engagement is one of my favorite movies ever), listened to French music, and took French classes in high school and college. But I never visited! C’est la vie.
Fast forward to this spring. G and I had some vacation time at the end of April and we originally planned on going to London. We had the perfect itinerary planned and were so excited… until the flights filled up! So naturally our only option was to go to Paris instead (quelle horreur!). It was a little crazy- I only had a few days to plan the trip and we ended up booking an Airbnb while sitting on the plane! But we made it and spent five amazing days in the City of Lights.
So… it’s not exactly coat weather in Phoenix right now. But, I have been searching for a pink coat for a long time with no success so I’m totally justified in getting this pink wrap coat now, right? Plus, I’ve got a vacation coming up, what if I visit someplace cold? I totally need this right now. In all honesty, I probably don’t but can you blame me for getting it? I love the shape and it’s the perfect spring coat- if you actually need one. And if you’re on the fence- just wait until you see the price!
I’ve been on a bit of a boot kick lately. I know, boots aren’t exactly what you expect to be buying in early spring but I’ve been finding such good deals, it’s been hard to resist them! I’ve been wanting over-the-knee boots for awhile and I was so excited when I found these ones on super clearance. Not only are they tall enough on me but they are also flat (a major plus as I hate walking around in heels all day). I love the slim fit and so far they’ve been comfortable to wear. I’ve been wearing them over skinny jeans and I think they’ll look so great with dresses as it warms up.
I’ve never been super into sporty clothes. Sure, I love comfy clothes and fun sneakers but you’ll never catch me running around in workout gear or tracksuits. But when I saw this velvet bomber, I had to have it. I’ve been into velvet and burgundy lately and I love how this jacket took a sporty silhouette and dressed it up a bit. Paired with a berry lip and glitter sneakers, it made the perfect outfit, even for someone who never envied Sporty Spice’s wardrobe.
It’s funny how there are certain articles of clothing we are drawn to over and over again. For me, it’s always a good tunic top. I think it stems from growing up, when I was super tall but living in a world of low-rise jeans- it was impossible to find a top that was long enough. Now I love them to be as long as possible and frequently wear mini dresses as tops (mostly because, again- really tall). This gray draped tunic is perfect. It has plenty of length and it also happens to be super comfortable and versatile.
