MY OUTFIT: JEANS RIVER ISLAND(SIMILAR)/ TOP ETAM/ BAG LOUIS VUITTON

Here I am back in Paris and back to my daily routine of taking the metro, climbing a million steps as I run up and down the streets of Montmartre and drinking my weight in coffee just to stay awake as I strike the balance between running my blog, working and studying all at the same time. For today’s post I wanted to talk about some goals I have laid out for the content I want to put out this year!

Notre-Dame and the square surrounding it may be inaccessible after the fire that happened in April but that doesn’t mean that you should skip out on visiting the quartier of Saint Michel next time you find yourself in Paris.

What is it that makes Montmartre so charming?

Though it may have a rather sordid past, the architectural beauty of Paris’ former red light district is undeniable.

Pigalle is an area in Paris where pretty much anything goes. Located right in the middle of the hill at Montmartre, this quartier was once the playground of artists and musicians alike all throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. Some of the biggest names in western art and culture such as Picasso, Renoir, Ernest Hemingway and Van Gogh frequented the many local cafés there including La Nouvelle Athènes and the world renowned Le Chat Noir. It was the district where Rimbaud frequented with his lover Paul Verlaine, where Edith Paif sang and of course where brothels and cabarets were commonplace.

Out of all the culture that exists across the area of Pigalle, The Moulin Rouge is the most show-stopping monument of all. With it being the birthplace of cabaret and the epicentre of burlesque, I just had to stop by last time I was strolling around Montmartre.

Is It Too Cliché To Wear Stripes in Paris?

A little post on the iconic marinière

Known in France as la marinière, a trusty striped shirt is as cliché as croissants, fromage and the colour navy blue. But as with many french clichés, where there is smoke there is fire and la marinière is a cult classic that is as common in every parisienne’s wardrobe as her little black dress.

For today’s look I’m going to be sharing this classic Parisian look with you guys and share with you how I pull off my stripes and keep the look chic and stylish all at the same time.
