You may have seen me share my mini bucket list of international travel destinations on my Instagram stories a few weeks ago (it’s a good one if you’re looking for travel inspo). I wrote that post a few years back and am so giddy-with-excitement that Johnny and I are finally going to one of the destinations on that list this week… PARIS.
I haven’t been since I was studying abroad in Prague and interned in Paris for fashion week… and before that I first visited for the first time for my 13th birthday!
Now Johnny and I are going there for a little post-engagement trip, and will only be there a few nights (though I’ve managed to squeeze in two hotel stays, classic 😉). I won’t be sharing any travel partnerships or sponsorships while we’re there, so it will be a chance for me (and us) to leisurely enjoy the sights, food, and magic of Paris.
I will however be capturing everything to share with you sporadically, and in a full itinerary and guide of our trip on the blog afterwards! We will also be taking our engagement photos while we’re there and I may or may not be stopping into a bridal boutique to try on a dress that can only be found in Paris at this time (what is life). Paris just has this way of having everything work out beautifully like that.
One // This bag is all kinds of statement-making fabulousness but is a $43 Amazon find! Comes in a bunch of colors too
Two // I ordered these velvet bows from Amazon to add a sweet touch to my hair styles– get 10 for $12!
Three // How FUN & fabulous are these?! They run true to size & are under $50! Come in blush too…
Four // Of course I had to bring along my new tweed Gucci loafers… I found & linked a pair in stock in a size 36! TTS
Five // I’ve been loving these tortoise Ralph Lauren sunnies from Sunglass Hut… they go with everything!
Six // Going to wear these heels for some of the engagement pictures we’re going to take. They’re giving Cinderella, TTS!
Seven // I packed all of my makeup and toiletries in these block print bags– they’re 3 for $30 on Etsy!
Eight // I swear by these faux fur lined loafers for keeping my feet warm & walking long distances!! $53 on Amazon & TTS
Nine // I recently splurged on this bag that I’ve wanted for forever & it’s so functional as a crossbody + fits a ton!
Ten // My sister gave me this bracelet when I graduated college & I thought Paris was the perfect occasion to pull it back out
Eleven // This light pink braided headband makes such a regal statement! I picked one that’s almost identical
Twelve // I plan on wearing my oversized faux pearl studs with everything– they’re so chic & I don’t have to worry about them!
Thirteen // These $36 heels are the perfect neutral but also have a touch of sparkle to them! They’re TTS
Fourteen // There’s nothing like traveling with La Mer for extra hydration on your face! This is their soften & glow set.
Fifteen // For some height I packed my perfect black booties– they don’t even feel like you’re wearing them because of the platform!
