Some more from Paris

Here's to some more shots from around Paris during our 9 lovely days there in February.  The next 2 posts after this will wrap up my travel photos from Paris and then hopefully soon I'll share snaps from Venice, Italy!

An Ivory Tulle Story (in black and white)

The lighting was a bit harsher than I would have liked when I took these photos (come on Oakland where's the fog at these days huh?) wearing my Alexandra Grecco tulle skirt, but as I was wearing all black and white it made sense to edit a few more of my favorites in b&w even though I don't do that too often.  Since the exposure and high contrast on some of these didn't work so well to fit in with the color photos I posted last time, they certainly worked darn well here together if I do say so myself and I love the more moody feel of these.  Oh, and these were shot outside the Cameron-Stanford historic house here in Oakland by the way!

An Ivory Tulle Story

Interrupting my Paris travel posts here for a 2 part outfit post  Ever since I received Alexandra Grecco's dusty blue tulle skirt that I wore on my birthday (see that post here!) I couldn't wait to slip into another bundle of dreamy tulle loveliness.  So, when I had a very happy mail day last week and this darling ivory number arrived I couldn't wait to wear it.  Initially I wanted to do all white but instead went with a more 50's style approach and paired it with a black peter pan collared blouse, vintage pin, pinned back curls, and black flats.  Simple, easy, but still felt very put together.  And of course anytime I wear one of these tulle skirts it feels like the most adorable adult version of dressing up like a princess or something.

Versailles - Part 2

After a few hours inside Le Ch√Ęteau de Versailles we headed over to Marie Antoinette's estate and her village Hameau de la Reine that just felt like an absolute fairytale to stroll through.  To this day I am still absolutely amazed by all the truly grand beauty we saw that day, felt like a dream!
