Au Revoir, Paris


This is my last official post from Paris, but worry not as I still have Italy to visit before I head back to the States (and mundanity consumes!). It's hard to wrap-up how I feel about Paris; I guess it is mostly because life, impressions, and memories don't fit into neat little boxes. I certainly enjoyed my time there and I think its a lovely city, but those statements don't really express much.
I'm glad everyone else has enjoyed my posts. It has not always been easy blogging while traveling (and well, that journey isn't quite over!), but it's nice to have a virtual record of these times. When you are traveling the time flies by and you tend to so much in a short while that it all quickly fades from memory. I think I would be happy to put up with every inconvenience to do it again; I'd be just as happy if my blog was a travel blog as a style one since I think I care more about new places than I do about new clothes! Lately, I've been eyeing dresses and thinking "that's a plane ticket to the west coast!" So, I suppose as I leave Paris I'm more excited about seeing new places than sad to leave this one...








Outfit details:
UO jacket
secondhand leather skirt
Deux Lux purse
*all pictures by me at Parc des Buttes-Chaumon

I would like to hear more about this park/waterfall: never heard about such a place in Paris. It's beautiful.

So chic and lovely Rebecca! You are such a stylish woman! Your pieces are classics and originals...maybe for 6 months you can travel and blog instead of shop and blog :)

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@amberly, I wish I could! My typical shopping is actually way cheaper than my traveling and I'm a budget travel--hostels, street food, and price comparison the whole way! I think it's partly b/c the pound and euro are stronger than the dollar. But I do hope to do more traveling this year. Just need to sit and collect a bit more cash again. :)

lise stevens said...

your a gorgeous woman, and love the yellow leather skirt ... very classy

Nicole said...

Did you alter the neckline of your Morrisfits tee? I have the same one, but the neck on mine is very tight! Just curious!

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@Nicole, nope, not at all. Actually never experienced tight-neck syndrome with it, but it is loose all over on me. Also, now I've worn it so much it's looser!

the Baby said...

Jenna said...

What a goregous waterfall! Lovely photos.

I hope you enjoy Italy as much as you have Paris, but I am sure you will. Once you are bitten by the travel bug you are infected for life as my sister and I can attest too!

xox,
bonita of Depict This!

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@b. don't I know it! My first flight was at 6 months and since then I've lived abroad and studied abroad (3 times), and wandered all over in-between those. I don't think I'll ever stop.

Fatiha Faulzi said...

Why stop travelling?! I wish i can trade places with you and explore those gorgeous countries you've visited.
