I am now the proud owner of an awesome striped shirt! I looked around for some inspiration and found this outfit from Kendi.


And my take, with smaller stripes:



Ooh la la, this outfit is so French! I feel like I should be sitting at a sidewalk cafe outside of the Eiffel Tower!


Unfortunately, there aren't any restaurants near the Eiffel Tower that aren't ridiculously expensive and touristy. I should know - my friends and I walked around for 45 minutes trying to find something that wasn't insanely priced! There is, however, an unassuming carnival-type stand right across from the Tower that has the most amazing crepes for about a euro. Get lemon and sugar - c'est magnifique!

Also, the walk from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower is about a 5k. It's a little painful in strappy sandals, and is not recommended to do on an empty stomach. Best to just chin up and deal with the rude French cabbie.

Apparently, this is just a French scarf!

  1. The death march across Paris was your favorite part of the trip, admit it!

    P.S. The ham and cheese crepe was better than the lemon and sugar. Meat and cheese will always beat fruit.

  2. I love your scarf. You're adorable.

  3. That would be a long walk!! We took the metro around everywhere -- the cabbies were a little snobbish weren't they?

    Love the outfit!

  4. I think your interpretation is adorable! And frankly, everyone in Paris is a little snobby - it kinda comes with the place! :P

  5. Love your outfit! :) I also think that putting your hair up really added to your adorable french persona. :)

    Mmmm I love crepes. There's a crepe place a half hour away from me that I'm addicted to! Though I always go for the one with cheese, meat, and pesto or the one with strawberries and chocolate.

  6. Ok, now you've got me craving crepes...by the Eiffel Tower, no less! I've got to take my hubby to Paris some time. An anniversary trip sounds like a great ide. I'll have to remember to pack an outfit like that.

  7. I think I like your copy-cat version even better!

    I've made the walk from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower myself, when I was there with my dad, so I totally feel you there. At least I had on good shoes and we'd eaten, but it didn't help that we'd just walked to Notre Dame from Luxembourg Garden.
