A quick journey through Paris. Part I.


«Paris is always a good idea.» 
- Audrey Hepburn 


Okay. I'm literally, deeply, madly, crazy, hopeless in love with Paris.
If you've read the "Lory's Story' page"  on my blog (well, I don't think you did) you might know that my aunt lives there directly on the Champs Elysées, and I visit her once in a year. 

Paris is the biggest inspiration I've ever seen in my life. I love the buildings, the people, the mentality, the chicness, the fashion.. just everything. Except the food and the weather of course. The food is awful. 
When I first visited Paris a few years ago, the love to fashion as a real art grew inside of me. 
I don't really have the words to describe what this city does to me, but it's the reason I'm obsessed with fashion and books about fashion.
So if my parents ever complain about me spending a fortune for books about the story of fashion.. well.. blame my aunt with her apartment on the Champs Elysées.

Anyways, I went there several times now, but I'm amazed by this city every. single. time.

So I'd like to show you my few days in Paris with this (and other one or two posts which will come later).  The weather was actually amazing (30 degrees every day, it was unbelievable hot), which was a real surprise because it rained everytime I went to Paris except this time.

First of all I wanted to give you a little sneak-peak of my aunt's apartment. She's currently moving to another big city for work so it is all a bit messy perhaps.











It's really just a sneak-peak, because the apartment is really big and really beautiful!

But anyways, on the first day we went visiting the Opéra de Paris. I went there already last year but it's just so enormous and impressionaly and great that I had to visit it again.












I'm wearing the famous new Zara skort I bought on the first day in Paris. Love it so much! The shirt is also Zara (Trafaluc), the bag H&M, and the sunnies Ray-Ban. I don't remember where I bought the gladiator sandals.. somewhere in a little boutique in the South of Italy I think.



After visiting the amazing and breath-taking opera we went eating under the roof of the shopping-centre Printemps. How you can see on the following picture, it has the same roof as the famous department store Lafayette


Restaurant at the mall "Printemps"

After this little lunch we had a really quick stop at a beautiful terrace to look at the stunning Tour Eiffel (although this tower is even more spectacular by night.. you'll see it on my next post!)




..After the Tour Eiffel we headed to see the Notre-Dame. But we didn't enter it, because the queue in front of the entrance was huge(!).





And of course we walked through the beloved "Pont des Arts" which I adore!



Of course I also added a small lock. It's pink and quite in the middle, the centre, of the picture!


So I hope you liked this quick journey through Paris - my aunt's house on the Champs Elysées, the Opéra, lunch at Printemps, the Eiffel Tower by day, Notre-Dame and Pont des Arts.

You will see more on the next posts! At the end of my "A quick journey through Paris"-Posts I will do a complete post about all the outfits I wore.

Stay tuned!

I'm looking forward to your comments/opinions!

Merci for reading!

Bisous, Lory xxxxx

  2. Dearest Lory, I immediately discovered your lock! Looks really like you had a fantastic time in Paris and I like your simple but stylish and edgy look <3

    Das Appartement Deiner Tante ist wirklich extrem sehenswert und sehr stilvoll eingerichtet. Der Stuck an der Decke - unglaublich. Und wenn ich sehe, wie die Einrichtung so zusammengestellt ist: liegt Stilgefühl bei Euch eigentlich in der Familie und wird das jeweils weiter vererbt? Denn wenn ich Dich so anschaue, dann bin ich ehrlich gesagt felsenfest davon überzeugt!

    Auch die Bilder von der Oper gefallen mir außerordentlich gut. Die Farbenpracht ist wirklich phänomenal.

    Of this cause I´m looking forward to your next post about Paris with great pleasure.

    Wish you a wonderful rest of the weekend!

    Big hugs and kisses from Bavaria

  47. C'est bizarre comme les gouts sont différents d'une personne à l'autre. Moi j'ai habité à Paris l'année scolaire passée et j'ai détesté. Les gens, leur attitudes, le bruit, les transports, la pollution, la ville et ses habitants quoi ^^

    Replies
    1. Oui tu as raison - c'est vraiment bizarre! Mais si tout le monde avait les mêmes gouts il serait très ennuyeux. Je peux imaginer que le bruit etc. pourrait être très fastidieux avec le temp.. mais je simplement adore passer mes vacances à Paris! x
