Hey guys! Some of you guys may already know from my other blog posts that I went to Paris very recently. I surprised my boyfriend Jay with the trip, you can watch the video from our trip here. We had a really fantastic time and I also go to meet my best friend out there who was holidaying with her boyfriend.
One of my favourite places in Paris is the Jardin du Palais Royal. It’s such a serene and cute little spot that not too many tourists crowd at any one time. The Jardin’s are in a huge courtyard surrounded by a gorgeous Parisian building with that typical Parisian architecture. The gardens themselves are manicured and are littered with benches and the odd fountain and statue. I love that you see local people enjoying a coffee reading whilst the tourists fawn over the gardens beauty. I would argue that one of the most popular little photo spots in Paris are the white and black stands in the Jardin’s. That’s definitely where you’ll meet the most tourists there but it isn’t busy at all in comparison to the other sites. There are a few shops, one restaurant and one cafe in the Jardin. I highly recommend Cafe Kitsune, their coffee is excellent!

So, onto the outfit. I reviewed this blouse in a YouTube video last week because I really wasn’t happy with the haul. The blouse I’m wearing was supposed to be a dress but it was so see through I just resolved to make it a shirt. It’s still pretty see through but I’m trying to make it work!
I paired it with a pussy bow from Missguided that I bought a few years ago. These pussy bow’s give me such Parisian and Blair Waldorf vibes so naturally I love them. I definitely take a lot of my style inspiration (or try to) from Queen B, Blair Waldorf herself. I feel like a lot of girls really loved her style in Gossip Girl. The denim skirt I’m wearing is from Forever21 and it’s super comfy, it was only £15 too. I’m wearing my trusty Vans because of the sheer amount of walking that’s involved with being a tourist in Paris! I definitely cannot hack Blair’s dedication to Manolo’s when walking for miles. Let me know what you think of the outfit. How would you style the blouse?
I’m going to be sharing some more pics from Paris so I hope you’re reading for some Parisian spamming! If you’ve been to Paris before let me know down below. It was my fourth time so it feel like it’s a home away from home. I’m currently in Crete but can’t wait to read your guys comments when I’m back. Thank you so much for reading, following and engaging. I really, truly appreciate it.
