Oh, Paris!- Day 3

paristrip00

Day 3 in Paris was probably one of my favorite days. We got started a little later because we slept in a bit; being jet lagged is the worst feeling! We met up with our fam Betty + Mathieu for lunch at Colette- a go-to destination in Paris for tourists, locals and fashion enthusiasts; a definitely must see store… We had a long lunch while chatting about everything and anything then headed upstairs to check out the store full of cool tees, gadgets, books, knick-knacks, sunglasses, wallets, and ready-to-wear clothing.

 

We hung out for a couple hours and before we knew it, it was 6pm already- a bit bummed we woke up late this day as I wanted to take full advantage of my “free day” and do a bit more sight seeing and shopping for my loved ones. We quickly got ready to head to the Palace of Versailles before sunset…. I know, I couldn’t believe I was going to visit the palace!

It was such a dream to walk up to the Palace and prance around such a historical landmark. It was the most beautiful scene I’ve witnessed; it felt magical, inspiring and charming.

Definitely one of the best memories I have to cherish! Below are some photos of what we documented for day 3, enjoy!paristrip9 paristrip2 paristrip8 paristrip4 paristrip5 paristrip3paristrip10 paristrip14 paristrip22 paristrip21paristrip19 paristrip25 paristrip20 paristrip28 paristrip15 paristrip16 paristrip24 paristrip11 paristrip18 paristrip1 paristrip26 paristrip

Oh, Paris!- Day 2.

day2-23

Day 2 in Paris was just as perfect as Day 1! I mean, it really just kept getting better! We had a full day packed with activities with the Sézane team!

We started off with a light breakfast across the street from the hotel and waited to get picked up by a taxi at 11 am. We then headed to Sézane’s studio to take a look at the new fall collection, and play dress up! Seriously, I wanted every single piece- the coats were to die for! Wishing fall came quicker now. After hanging out and falling in love with every piece in her studio as well as her studio as a whole, we walked to the nearest farmer’s market to snap photos and to get inspired. We walked for a couple of hours just exploring the city and it’s beautiful streets, we would randomly pop in and out of stores we thought were cool. We were finally making our way in to the Centre Georges Pompidou museum to have lunch on the roof top of Le Georges restaurant. We were greeted and surprised by my close friends Betty and Mathieu- it was the loveliest surprise!

The Sezane team left us to enjoy lunch as they headed back to the office to work. We caught up for hours enjoying a yummy lunch, drinks and dessert overlooking the whole city (photo above). Soon after, we got ready to check out some cool stores and meet up with some other friends for drinks. It was truly an amazing 2nd day with incredible friends!

Later in the evening, we headed back to the hotel, rested, changed and headed to dinner with Morgane, Coco and Thomas (Sézane team!). My scrumptious meal was accompanied by the best ice cream in town from Berthillon- and that it was! We caught a boat ride that took us through Ile Saint Louis to wrap up our amazing day; it was magical.

Take a glimpse of what we captured of Day 2 in Paree!

Excited to share this collaboration between some of my favorites: Mango x the super talented & beautiful Zanita! A couple of months ago, you may remember I was in Barcelona having my summer experience with Mango … while we had fun exploring the city and following the activities Mango had planned for us, I was getting antsy to work on our shoot after the experience was over!

I’ve been blessed to meet and work with such amazing + talented people throughout my whole blogging experience, but one sweet lady I’ve been dying to work with was with my now good friend Zanita. She’s the total package! Literally. I was beyond thrilled to find out I was going to be shot by Zanita. She really does capture the most sweetest moments and I have always been fan of her keen eye and editing skills! It was definitely such a dream team!

Mango has always been one of my favorite brands to work with and it really dates back to the beginning of when I started blogging; I’ve had such a great working relationship with them. Their new collection is something I’d love my whole wardrobe to be composed of. Animal print and denim? Yes please!

I hope you guys enjoy these photos by the amazing Zanita for Mango! I love them.

Thank you my beautiful friend Zanita, you’re such an inspiration! Mango- thank you for making me a part of this collaboration! #dreamteam. Check out the magazine here.
