First time I visited Paris, I didn’t really enjoy it. I don’t really know the exact reason, but I wasn’t blown away. Maybe it was the fact that I didn’t take that much picture (yes, it is a pleasure for me) or maybe I just didn’t choose the right activities for me, but it just wasn’t love at first sight.
I had the chance to go back in 2016, in December. My first 24 hours in Paris were awful- I was sick for a good 24 hours and wasn’t able to leave my hotel room, yet my bed. I hated it already. Then, I got better and had the chance to explore a bit more, the way I wanted to. Coffee shops, boutiques, librairies, the bouquinistes, brunches- I discovered MY Paris, the Paris I should have known the first time. I also met with great photographers there (Hi Ariane) and we took a bunch of memorable photos for my site.
Here is the first outfit we photographed together, while wandering around the city. We went for brunch, then hit Uniqlo, discovered Librairies. It was a real, great fun time.
