Paris on the Brain

Remember that Grange Furniture contest I won? Well that prize was a trip to Paris and I leave next week for it! I can;t believe I’m headed back there and get to show my Dad around Paris for his first time ever! I’ve been so busy that I have not had much time to think about it, but beginning yesterday my brain started floating towards all things en francais. French style always inspires me, and the images from L’Hotel Particulier have haunted me for months (chock out the site).  Located in Provence, it’s style is so amazing and simple, traditional yet modern and totally ME!

Images via Cote de Texas & Mr. & Mrs. Smith

But back to the City of Light- I really love the images I found by Etsy photographer Vita Nostra. Fantastic scenes from various parts of Paris.

As I panic about what to pack (it’s going to be cold!) I put together two outfits I wish i could bring with me!

For daytime walking (which I did about 8 hours of daily the last time I was in Paris…)
