Paris: Day 3

Monet's famous lily pad gardens where he painted many of his paintings. 

Sorry for the flower overload! Day 3 was spent in Giverny where Monet's house and gardens were. It was such a beautiful sunny day and I spent hours just roaming through the gardens. I do have to apologize for the lack of "outfit" photos from my Paris trip, most of my photos were very touristy pictures of monuments or me cheesily standing in front of monuments. If you ever go to France, I would take the opportunity to go to Giverny. It's not too far from Paris and it is beautiful. I think it would have been even better in summer.

Paris: Day 2

Deciding which pictures to post is so hard when you have so many! I spent most of my second day running around Paris like a mad woman going to Rodin's museum/garden, going to Cézanne's exhibit at the Luxembourg garden's, then wandering around the gardens and staring at the beautiful chateau while having drinks at a café. We made it to the Eiffel Tower just as the sun was setting and I think that is when it is most beautiful. Lovely how the gardeners were there to ruin my picture at Rodin's museum, huh? I'm just dreaming of going back already...

not quite autumn

I can't believe it's in the 70s in October in Chicago! I have no idea how I have gotten nothing done since I've moved back (still have 15 boxes lined up in my foyer needing unpacking) but I feel like I have had no free time. I'll try to post a little more before I leave for Paris and I promise to unload you with photos when I get back.

Outfit: T-shirt: Chaser / Skirt: Lush / Shoes: Converse / Necklace: House of Harlow
