Polka Dots in Paris

One of my close friends thinks that I should be a bit more model-esque with my outfit posts and I thought, “what better backdrop than the streets of Paris to be modely on?” I LOVED my outfit and the weather was so beautiful and perfect for it. We spent the day browsing art museums, eating at cafe’s, strolling the Champs Elysees and watching the ducks at the Tuileries Jardin… I found this caftan at a thrift store for $3 and I knew it had some special quality to it. I had also stocked up on a bunch of tights on sale at the BX (they rarely have anything good there) and when I pulled these on I noticed the dot pattern and was like “OH YEAH!” They went perfect! So stoked… I rarely wear head to toe black, but this worked for me. I added in my favorite belt to work it in with my Longchamp bag and gold accessories. Uggs are necessary when spending about 12 hours walking.

These bushes matched my Caftan

 I could not get over how spectacular the weather was.  Paris in the fall really was just beyond words, beautiful.  It was funny how much more of the city I saw this time.  We walked a lot more than we ever had before and wound up seeing views of Paris I had missed riding the metro everywhere.

Thats all for now... more pics and stories to come!
