Is anyone else super obsessed with dark green right now? I feel like I’m seeing it everywhere and I just can’t get enough of it! Green has always been one of my favorite colors but I don’t wear very much of it, although I do love a good mint color in spring. Darker greens are perfect for fall though, and I’ve been loving all the pieces I’ve seen, including this dark green mini dress. I love how this green works almost as a neutral color- it’s great for pairing with so many different colors and accessories.
Our final full day in Paris was a little more relaxing in that we only had one thing on our list but we were still on-the-go for most of the day. I couldn’t go to Paris without visiting a fancy palace and I was so excited when we were able to fit a visit to one in our itinerary. We opted to skip Versailles (and the infamous crowds) and instead went to Château de Fontainebleau.
Fall in Phoenix is tough. Everyone else is breaking out their cozy clothes in dark, moody colors but it still feels like summer here. It’s just not cool enough yet to break out the warm sweaters and scarves. So instead I’ve been buying light tops and dresses but in deeper colors so I still get my fall fix. This burgundy lace dress from Yoins is one of my latest finds. I love the rich color but the short length and lace sleeves still keep me weather-appropriate.
Day four in Paris was probably my favorite of our entire trip. We still managed to do a ton of stuff but it felt a lot more relaxing after the previous couple of days. I think it helped that we didn’t travel across the city as much and the places we visited weren’t as overwhelming as say, the Louvre. Our visits at each stop were much shorter and it seemed like a bit of a lazy day, even though it wasn’t at all. We began the day with a quick coffee stop before taking the metro to the Musée D’Orsay.
For the most part, I tend to stick with solids for my clothes but when I find a really fun print, I can’t resist buying it. Pretty colors always draw me in, which was the case for this watercolor dress. I loved the swirls of blue, pink, and purple and I’d been eyeing it for months. I finally pulled the trigger after our Paris vacation- the print reminded me of all of the impressionist paintings we saw on our trip. As such, I’ve affectionately named this my “Monet dress” and it makes me happy every time I wear it.
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!
