The Pastel Parisian

Our second day in beautiful Paris began almost dreamily, waking up early to find the city shrouded in fog and grey light. We headed straight for the Eiffel Tower, hoping that if we got there early enough we would be able to to snag a couple of snaps without hoards of tourists in the background. 

Luckily, we found the area around the tower completely isolated and we were the only souls to be seen.

Paris also gave me the perfect excuse to bust out this gorgeous outfit from New Look, which was kindly gifted to me as part of their new #ThisIsNewLook campaign. If you use the hashtag when posting on your social media then you are in for a chance of winning £200!

Despite the tower being topped with a hat of fog, it still looked just as, if not more beautiful than ever, hauntingly leering over us and the rest of Paris like a protective parent. 

Let's just chat about how much I love this skirt. It's the most gorgeous scuba material, meaning it effortlessly flutters out without the need of a petticoat. It also feels amazing to touch, which sounds very weird but if you've ever squished scuba material with your fingers before, you'll know what I mean! Paired with this ballerina style top, I felt like the perfect combination of princess, 50's movie star and ballet dancer. 

Unfortunately this was my final day in the beautiful city. I'm so happy I got to go back and explore it properly, visiting all the places I wanted to while still managing to appreciate the beauty of it all. If there's one tip I have if you go to Paris, it's "look up!" 

But, I will be returning very soon! Stay tuned for that! 

I'd love to know what you thought of my Paris blog posts, and if you would like to see more adventures from my travels. I've really caught the wanderlust bug again.
