I got recently engaged so my fiancé and I decided to go for a short city break to Paris -the City of Love- to celebrate our engagement and wind down from a hectic week of work. We had an amazing weekend in France visiting landmarks, museums, galleries, shopping and indulging in French cuisine.
Paris is for lovers, as they say, and it’s true that the city puts you in the right romantic mood, even though Kim and I visited Paris in winter when it was cold and rainy. We went to the top of the Eiffel Tour and watched the city unfolding below us through telescopes. One of my favorite novels is Victor Hugo’s ‘Hunchback of Notre-Dame’, so our next stop was a visit the legendary Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture and a world-renowned monument. Visiting the Louvre and seeing Mona Lisa was also one of the highlights of our trip.
For my style on the streets of Paris, I chose comfortable and soft fabrics in beige, brown, and black tones with golden details. A must to complete the look was my fierce GUESS watch with a leopard-print design and gold, brown and black color touches!
