Bonjour Paris!

After staying for a couple of days in Venice, my husband and I took the Thello Night Train and headed for Paris. We traveled overnight and arrived in the French capital's Gare de Lyon Station the next morning. So where did we go first? To the Eiffel Tower, of course!

Amazing, isn't it? I recall standing in the middle of the platform for a few minutes and just staring at this architectural  marvel. Paris is really beautiful and The Eiffel Tower is just one of the city's grand attractions.

 It was a bit chilly that day so I covered up with this white coat from Zara. I love incorporating white pieces into my wardrobe because they make my outfits look clean and chic. I know it's quite difficult to wear because it gets stained easily. But personally, white is more striking and I will always prefer it over black.

I love the print and how this pair of trousers fit me really well. Because of my petite frame, it can be such a nightmare looking for clothes that don't need altering. I'm so pleased SM GTW carries stylish apparel in my size. They're extremely comfortable to wear and perfect for a busy day like this.

Visiting this romantic city was a first for both of us and we were really excited to walk around and start exploring.

 I went for a minimalist look and paired my trousers with a plain white blouse. When I was getting dressed that morning, I initially thought of wearing a gold collar necklace. But then I realized that sometimes outfits look complete already even without accessories. So I took off the necklace, grabbed my coat and I was out the door.

 Honeymooners

We couldn't just look at The Eiffel Tower and leave without going up. So we got our tickets, went to the entrance gate and headed for the lift.

 The ride up was incredibly breathtaking and it was the best way to see the city.

 My husband is really the sweetest. When we got to the top, he went down on one knee and proposed to me again. I swear it was really overwhelming especially since there were a lot of tourists in the area. Even though we are already married, it still felt like the first time he asked me to marry him.

Waking up in Paris and seeing The Eiffel Tower was definitely the best way to start our day. :)
