As you will be able to tell, I’m not uploading these posts on the exact day they happen, so I apologise if my blog says today in Paris, but my Instagram has a photo of me in Lyon. I don’t have all that much time to write/ edit my posts (because I’m in amazing cities of course), so when I get a little time in the evening I try to whip something up.
Today’s outfit is pretty simple, which I like. Dressing out of a suitcase isn’t the best when it comes to options, so I’ve tried to do the best with what I’ve got – meaning simplicity is a must! I love the colour of this pink sweater I picked up in New York from H&M for a grand total of * wait for it* $10. So respectfully quality isn’t the best, but it’s a great throw on when you’re desperately thinking “help me I’m running out of outfit options to blog about”. The colour is almost fluorescent in it’s vibrance, yet still tasteful. I particularly love the ribbed collar, and how the ribbed texture is tied in with the ends of the sleeves. To me it makes it look a bit more expensive than $10. Yet again, pink is the main act in my look, complimented by the tan belt and my blue flared jeans. As much as I wish I could say this belt was worn purely for aesthetic, I do need it to keep these pants from gaping at the back. As for the blue coat, it is the lightest of all my coats, so by default I had to wear it ( the weather wasn’t too chilly). Luckily, it didn’t look to shabby with my outfit, so it was a win win!
As for what we got up to?- not much at all, we got up at about 10:30 am. I know we sleep in, but it’s my holiday, so I don’t feel bad about it one bit! Gracefully stuffing our faces with multiple pastries was up next, followed by a lengthy walk to the catacombs. We took these photos on the way because I saw a green door, and since the stars aligned, I matched the magic watermelon duo. When we finally reached the catacombs, we lined up for a good 45 mins before we were let in and made our way 60 meters beneath the ground like it was no big deal. It was my second time down there, and I must day, it creeped me out just as much the second time. The biggest thought that goes through my head is “who were these people”, because you never know who’s right leg and skull you’re staring at, you know? We then finally reached the light of day after I struggled to walk up the never-ending windy staircase. It was then decided we would walk home for 40 mins in a light sprinkle, so when we got home all we wanted to do was watch Netflix and then binge on some delicious Italian for dinner. Which is exactly what we did.
