although I’ve never travelled alone, I think I could quite easily. During this Parisian stay, I did find myself alone for a decent amount. Travelling around a city that you can’t really speak the language of, navigating the streets and cultural customs. I found it relaxing. If you’ve read my blog you will know that I’ve been to Paris a few times and felt comfortable being alone in the city, practising my French to waiters and strangers. Walking through the neighbourhood where Hayden and I used to live when we last visited made me happy. Seeing L’Escargot on Rue Montorgueil where I made Hayden try snails for the first time. It was strange to know a city that is in a different country, as though it was your own. I was out solo exploring while Hayden slept after his Marathon. I went to find him the best pastries in Paris. I chose the Patisserie Stohrer, which is considered the oldest in Paris. I returned home with Poisson de Massepain, Cafe Eclair and a Paris Brest. All were delicious and the kind of pastries we were looking for this whole trip. I organized a photo shoot while Hayden was running with a photographer that I had never met before and just went to the location, did the shoot and that was it. I wasn’t frightened, or unsure I just knew that I wanted to experience this city and to meet new people and explore is the best way to do so.

Yesterday I came back from my four day adventure in Paris. The weather was amazing and about 30 degrees which meant that I could fully commit to the holiday outfit look.
This palm top is a high-low but I love it tucked in, gives me a bit more of a shape. I wore this look around Disney Paris on one of the hotter days. My Camo Converse are the most comfortable choice for the day, I wore them the whole trip.
The stone cuff is a nice detail for me making the whole look more tribal. The ring and the layered necklace are both from Naf Naf. Which was one of my favourite brands when I was younger. We stopped into the Champs Elysees store and picked them up.
I added a little blue to my eyeliner, what can I say, holiday fever!
skirt – Oasis
Top – H&M
