Paris { Je T’aime }

Paris was our very first and last stops during our European honeymoon adventure.  What can I say about Paris? The first thing that I noticed is that the Parisian women are so stylish, polished, and beautiful. So much so that they are like artworks, too delicate and expensive to touch. Life must be that much more grande to be able to face the world each day dressing so glamorous. 

There are so many cafes, as if it’s almost sinful to not submerged yourself in one at least once a day to experience the people watching phenomenon. That in itself is stylish! 

We stayed in this gorgeous Parisian architectural B&B only two blocks away from the famous Champs Elysees Avenue (known for pricey real estates and luxury shopping strips) and just mins away from the Arc de Triomphe. Needless to say, the massive Louis Vuitton store made it to our list as the first stop. Hey you got to start off with a bang! 

I made this picture collage of Paris when I had this crazy obsession over Polyvore. Notice our picture in the center of this! We took this in front of the Arc de Triomphe using a Tripod! Yea, people were prob. thinking we’re crazy but hey honeymoon only happens once!

Our place.

Love the wood floors!

Balcony view. 

They didn’t let us take pictures in the LV store so my husband quickly snuck one while I was exiting the store! I mean, shopping at an LV store on the famed Champs Elysees Ave in Paris? Must be documented!

Snuck another one!

Scored! and grinning ear to ear. Believe it or not, the goods were not for me. They were for my sisters. Don’t feel sorry for me, I had my Gucci & Prada moments.

It poured just mins later and my husband captured this as I was anxiously crossing the street. Love this shot, so artful looking. 

Love the green trees lining the streets. This very much reminds me of where I live. 

Later, we feasted on some sandwich and pastry at a bakery shop. So French, eh? 

Light and creamy!

There are so many wonderful Paris moments and pictures that I need to sift through.  I will prob. do 2 more follow up Paris postings. 

Hopefully, we can bring Zoey to Paris one day, SOON!

Til next post, Kellie

  8. Looking forward to more Parisian posts. Going to Paris has been on my bucket list since HS, so loved this post!


  9. I just rewatched Le Divorce yesterday and was remembering how glamourous French women are and it is seemingly effortless for them. I love the simplicity of their style – it is not about complicated pieces but a few great, well made pieces and some beautiful accessories like a scarf or bab.

    We have been to Paris a couple of times and I adore the food, the architecture, the cafes, the people (even though people say they are mean – they are not)! One of my favorite places in Europe.
