Oh, Paris!

Bonjour de Paris!

I’ve been living the Paris dream for the last couple of days and I’ve been loving and enjoying every second of it. I arrived two days ago and although it was such a long trip; 15+ hours of traveling, a layover in Montreal and a missed flight, it was all worth it. We settled into the adorable Thoumieux Hotel, which is only a few mins away from the Eiffel Tower, and were greeted by the lovely Morgane from Sézane. Our room was the cutest, most charming room ever filled with clashing prints on the wall, curtains, carpet.

Morgane was very sweet to welcome us with a cool vintage luggage filled with goodies (see below) which would be helpful during my stay in Paris- like the mini polaroid camera and scrapbook to document my trip in. After a quick rest, we got ready and headed to have lunch then walked to the Eiffel Tower to see the view from the top! Being as it was my first time in Paris, I was completely thrilled to 1) be in Paris and 2) visit the Eiffel Tower. It was magical. Only real word to describe how I felt, really.

After a couple of hours taking photos of the Eiffel Tower and being up at the top, we walked to a cute little street to get some ice-cream to wrap up our first day! We ended the night having an amazing French dinner!

Always dreamt of visiting Paris and my dream is finally came true! It’s beautiful and beyond. Excited to share my diary of Paris with you as well as my time spent with Morgane and the shoot we are having! Enjoy.. Au Revoir!

Hello there my loves! I know, I know.. I went missing for a couple of days! I’ve been bummed I haven’t been able to update the blog but it was a crazy week/end last week! I feel like I say that all the time, no? Well it was. I had to work on some projects, design new tees, ship orders to Shopbop, meetings, and pack for my trip to paris! Whew!

It was crazy! Thankfully I was able to complete everything before I left for Paris. So now I’m writing from my cute little Parisienne room overlooking the beautiful flats and narrow streets! Beyond excited to be here right now as it has been a long time dream of mine! Will tell you more on my next post but I’m very happy and blessed to be here with the lovely and beautiful Morgane and her team from Sézane. Amazing people!

Stay tuned for more from Pareeeeee! xo

Quick post to say hello! I didn’t get a chance to properly shoot photos yesterday so this iPhone photo will have to do for now.

Posted this photo last night on my instagram and got a lot of inquiries about both the tee and skirt! The tee is the perfect gray tee; it’s slouchy, feels worn in and super comfy! Definitely a staple piece that I always talk about. Paired it with the neon floral mini to dress it down and make it more laid-back.

Busy day ahead again; shipping a bunch of tees to Shopbop today, yay! (stay tuned for the new ones they will be receiving as well as restocking and putting online), meetings, designing new tees for SJ shop and for a special collab. Excited the weekend is here!

What do you guys have planned? Happy Friday! xx
