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. 

Be sure to follow over on Instagram and Tiktok for the looks of how I style everything below. 

ONE // TWO // THREE // FOUR // FIVE // SIX // SEVEN // EIGHT // NINE // TEN // ELEVEN // TWELVE // THIRTEEN // FOURTEEN // FIFTEEN

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…

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! 

ONE // TWO // THREE // FOUR // FIVE // SIX // SEVEN // EIGHT // NINE // TEN // ELEVEN // TWELVE // THIRTEEN // FOURTEEN // FIFTEEN
