I am typing this article while on the plane to Romania, after a short stop in Paris. Having such a sweet tooth, I couldn’t resist some delicious Parisian macarons, this time from Dalloyau. Even though it was just 10 days ago when I was in Paris, I cannot believe how much I miss it already. During our stay last week, Julian and I were blessed with great weather that allowed us to stroll through the city, shoot some lovely outfits, be amazed once more by the lovely attractions and enjoy some relaxing moments while indulging ourselves with yummy food and macarons.
As promised in the previous post, I will talk about shopping and suggest few great places where you can find anything from souvenirs to designer pieces. There will be one more post from Paris in the near future and then is when I will talk a bit about places to visit. This H&M blue dress I’ve chosen set the scene for a relaxing time and at the same time added femininity, elegance and a dreamy touch. The soft cotton and chic cut would make any woman feel classy and comfortable while wearing this beautiful dress. It was a bliss to shoot this outfit by the Louvre Museum.
Galleries Lafayette (40, Boulevard Haussmann) is one of the key shopping spots in Paris, along with the vibrant Champs-Élysées and Printemps (64, Boulevard Haussmann). Apart from infinite choices when it comes to gifts, clothing, shoes, make-up, jewellery and anything else you could think of, these places combine art with shopping so that the perfect ambiance is created. If you visit Galleries Lafayette, you will definitely be amazed by the cupola with all the colours and details it contains. And don’t forget to go to the last floor (7th), where you’ll find an open terrace, with cozy chairs and the view of Paris to enjoy. A similar view is from Printemps’s terrace on the 9th floor. What can be more relaxing?
If you prefer enjoying the nice weather, walking along a street with shops and cafes on each side and not being stuck shopping in department stores, then Champs-Elysees is the choice for you. It is one of the most famous streets in the world, delighting people with its cinemas, cafés, luxury specialty shops and clipped horse-chestnut trees. Not only this, but several French monuments are also on the street, including the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde. There are plenty of other places to shop in Paris, depending on what you are looking for, but for first time visitors, looking to go on a shopping spree, the places mentioned above would be most suitable so that you combine visiting with shopping.
As I like to say, fashion is about living out our dreams and making other people want to do the same. Have a lovely week, life lovers! Keep smiling until next time!
