From Paris, With Love

When I booked our tickets to Paris, I had this vision in my mind: a beautiful red dress and the Eiffel Tower standing tall behind me. I've partnered with Lulu's for this post, to share a series of images that Marco and I took during one of our mornings in Paris. I know it's all so cliche, the dramatic red dress, color of love in the city that people will say is one of the most romantic places in the world. But that's what it is. It's all that they say and so much more. It's why I came back a year after seeing it for the first time.

This post is inspired by the city that I fell in love with, with the person I fell in love with many years ago. It's hard to explain exactly what it feels like to be in Paris when you're with the one you love, maybe because it's really supposed to stay a feeling that is so overwhelming that it's hard to describe. It's funny to look back and know that we went from two kids playing in the park together after school to two young adults traveling around the world, little by little, slowly but surely.
You taught me how to live freely, to not take life too seriously. You've taken the serious parts of me and showed me how to laugh more and to just allow life to happen. We both had no idea what adventure we were about to embark on over six years ago when you asked me to be yours and only yours, but I am so thankful. To be able to see the world with you, with eyes that know love and what it's like to know to be loved in return is what makes all our adventures together so special.

I can't wait to see more new cities with you, to travel with your hand in mine, as we walk through new neighborhoods, our ears hearing and learning new languages. I look through the pages of my passport and I'm so glad that half of those stamps are from places I've been able to see with you. Wherever we are, I find myself staring at the views, but then back to you. Thank you for everything and I can't wait to see where our next adventure takes us.

Sunsets in Paris

So happy to have been able to bring along something classic on my return to Paris, France. I've partnered with Lulu's to share my moment with a Parisian sunset and this was the perfect piece for a summer evening.

I fell in love with this city before we even met. I read about her, I've seen her in movies. When I finally made my way to Paris for the very first time last year, the city did not disappoint. I wanted to come back because I missed it too much. I love the way the city streets look, I love the way everything sounds when it's said in French. I loved the way the sun didn't set until late, and when it did, it left me absolutely breathless.

Traveling With Eurostar

It's been on my list to travel from one country to another by train. Luckily for Marco and I, we were able to experience traveling with Eurostar as we left London and headed to Paris. We had arrived at London St. Pancras Railway Station to catch our afternoon train to Paris. In just about 2.5 hours, we went from one country to another. Marco and I travelled with Standard Premier tickets where we were able to sit comfortably and enjoy a lunchtime meal during the ride. The train comes with Wi-Fi so I was able to get a bit of work done during the ride.

As someone that often rides trains in New York City or going into New Jersey, I was pleasantly surprised by the smooth ride with Eurostar. The next time I'm going between countries in Europe, I'll definitely be traveling by train again. Be sure to check out Eurostar to see what travel options you have on your next trip!

A Special Thank You To Eurostar For A Wonderful Experience

Lovers + Friends + London

Being able to see a new city with your significant other is an incredible experience. Traveling is something that Marco and I love to do together and I'm so happy we were able to cross London off our list this year. When we started dating, we were kids in college, going on road trips, visiting new cities in other states, etc. Once we got older, we were able to save up and travel to new countries. I can't wait to see where the next trip will take us.

Do It In Black

You can never go wrong with an all black look. In fact, it's my go-to when I have no idea what to wear. London's neighborhoods were so charming and I just couldn't get enough of the facades of the flats and local shops. For a day that we were wandering around one of the fancier neighborhoods, I knew an all black look would be just right. Shop this look down below.

Seeing London

They say the best way to see a city is on foot, so that's what we did. Exploring a new city is always so exciting, charming corners, meeting some incredible locals and hearing their own personal suggestions, it's one of the best things about traveling to a new city. London has been on my list for quite some time so I'm thrilled that Marco and I were finally able to cross it off our list. Don't worry, I've got an itinerary to share with you all soon. Shop this look with the links below!

Bold Back with Lulus

I'm back with another look that I've put together by partnering with Lulu's! Lucky for me, London's weather was fairly warm for a good amount of the trip. If there's one thing I love in a top, it's a great back detail. Keeping up with my typical black and white scheme in South Kensington, this Lulu's top was the perfect way to make a statement. When something has a detail about it that you want to be the focal point of your look, it's a good idea to keep all other pieces pretty simple. For me, black skinny jeans and simple black pumps are the way to go. Shop this look in the links below!

Lulus in London

I know I've been running a bit behind but I'm so happy to finally start sharing my outfit posts from London with you all! I partnered with Lulu's for some looks on my trip and the first one that I just fell in love with is this striped jumpsuit that is perfect for summer. If you know me, you know I don't typically wear color but I just fell in love with this piece and knew I had to wear it in London. Paired with my go-to white sneakers and my nude Gucci bag, I was ready to wander around London Town. Stay tuned for more outfits from this trip and shop this piece below!
