the city of light.

Remember when we went to Paris two months ago? Remember when I still haven't finished my trip recaps? I know it may be fall in Paris now, but I thought a few snaps of summer in the City of Light would be good for the soul this Tuesday. These photos capture a few of the little moments from our walks through the streets of Paris...


Most of you know I love cobalt blue--this city just furthered my obsession.


If every day could start with Nutella, it would be a good day.


I have--and always will--love neon. Multiple examples can be found below...


Our hotel was just up the street from the Musée Rodin, so we had to make a stop. {cv} and I really enjoyed this little oasis in the city. Make time for it if you can! {The first photo in this post is from the sculpture gardens there too. Imagine The Thinker in person, surrounded by flowers!}


Sacré Coeur and Montmartre are favorite stops for us. I loved this gorgeous fence along the basilica. 


I loved the simplicity of this sign...


In 2010, we spent our Parisian honeymoon on Rue Rivoli. When we went by our old hotel this summer, the ferris wheel in the Tuileries was hard to miss.


Embarrassingly enough, we spent the first night of our honeymoon and the last night of our latest French adventure at the {touristy} Le Champ de Mars--a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower. 



A post about Paris wouldn't be complete without a photo of the Eiffel Tower. We picnicked 
and sipped champagne while waiting to see it sparkle on our last night {as seen here}.


I'm ready to go back. NOW. {Want more from Paris? See my other posts here and here!} These photos have me craving another vacay...maybe Santorini this time? sigh. Enjoy your Tuesday, friends! 


P.S. Remember these pants? Make them your own for less than $35. Thank me later ;)

  10. When we were in Italy a few years ago, I ate a Nutella croissant everyday for breakfast. Definitely a good way to start the day!

    Also, Paris has been on my dream travel list for most of my life. It almost hurts seeing these photos because I want to go so badly!!!

  17. I'd love to do a long weekend in Amsterdam cause I've never been! But we've agreed not to do any honeymooning in Europe because if (when) we move back to London it'll be easy to do all the continental holidays we want - we feel we should be adventurous somewhere else for this occasion! we just can't agree where. haha - what a problem to have, I know!
