Paris Photo Diary - Part II

One of my purchases on this trip. It actually took two visits to the store and seeing someone else with the second to last bag in the store to make up my mind. I shall do a post on my new love soon. But for those of you following me on Instagram (user name "fabuloustuesdays"), you probably have a good idea what I added to my collection.

It seems like having a castle or a palace inside a park is pretty common in Europe. The thought of having this gigantic space as one's "garden" is simply mind blowing. This photo was taking in the Jardin du Luxembourg. In my already planned future visits to Paris, I envisioned myself coming back here for a day filled with picnics, strolling through the garden, and reading under the sun.

Notre Dame by day and night. The apartment that we stayed at in Paris was literally across the river from Notre Dame. One of the best views if you ask me. The day and night feel was so dramatically different, that I highly recommend visiting the place on two occasions if time allows.


My very fist visit to the Louvre. There's something about going to a place so grand that made me wanted to dress extra ladylike. I paired my striped top from French Connection with my white skirt from Madewell to compliment the sunny weather. However, the morning temperature was not quite warm enough to go with bare legs. So I added black tights, which happened to "hide" the fact that I was unable to part with my black Sperry in preparation of a very long day of walking.

After the Louvre, we decided to strolled through the Tuileries Gardens. By then, the weather warmed up to be the best weather we had this whole trip. Needless to say, we soaked up the sun as much as we could and treated ourselves to some ice cream during the stroll.

Came across the "Love Bridge" that were filled with locks on our way back from the Louvre. The boyfriend and I couldn't help but to come back for a second visit on our last day there, and put a lock of our own on the bridge. We got the lock from a nearby vendor, and walked back to the bridge to snap some pictures. I kept the keys to the lock with me, hoping that when we come back one day we may find our lock again (how romantic does that sound?).

So, here are the rest of the my Paris pictures. Sorry to have to overwhelm the post with this many captures, but I couldn't help it. The whole trip was just simply amazing. We did our best to soak up the entire experience, the attractions, the people, the food, the shopping, and just everything and more. I just truly loved Paris and already plotting reasons for another visit. Merci beaucoup!
