(H&M Top, F21 Cardigan & Jeans, Sam Edleman Boots )
Wore this outfit because I was anticipating it to be 65 degrees in Paris the other day, turns out weather.com lies and it only reached 60. Bummer. I'm so sick of rainy and grey weather, I'm ready to bust out some summer clothing, and not freeze my ass off whilst wearing it!
Today was one of the most fabulous days I've had in a while. I went shopping - FOR CLASS!! We were talking about Haussmanization and the introduction of the department store to Paris, and we actually had class in the stores! A little tip for those heading to Paris in the near future - at the department store Printemps on Boulevard Haussmann there's a rooftop terrace cafe with AMAZING views of the city. I never knew it existed until today!
After our glamorous outing to the Saks & Neimans of Paris, I went to a dinner party in the ultra chic 7th arrondissement. The apartment itself was like something out of my dreams. Penthouse, of course, with an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower, and decorated with the most phenomenal antique furniture I've ever seen in my life. Golden sunlight was streaming through the floor to ceiling windows which led out to a balcony. The chairs were covered in the same kind of silk that Marie Antoinette used for her walls in Versailles. He even had sets of SEVRES porcelain! (Sorry going into my nerd mode). But it's like something out of a dream, never did I think my Parisan excursions would lead me to such an amazing apartment.
But what was EVEN MORE impressive than the furniture and the apartment was the food. We had perfectly sliced foie gras, impossibly thin prosciutto, fine aged French cheese, a HUGE box of Laduree Macarons, and bottles upon bottles of really wonderful red wine. The host was ever so nice and it was really one of the most enjoyable evenings I've spent here in the city. I can't believe how lucky I am!
Pictures from that to come!
Also, I'll be in Germany for the next four days, I'll be back in Paris for 24 hours, then I'll be going to Barcelona for the Primavera Sound Festival!!! I'm so so excited!! Let me know if any of you are going to be there, I'd love to meet up!
