#TBT: Paris

I’m really itching to travel again, but working in the real world makes traveling much more difficult than when I was in high school or college. As I continue to figure things out, I love to relive memories and look at old photos. I’ve shared a few of my favorite pics from my trip to Paris in 2012. Ugh, take me back ASAP.

{ All photos taken with my Nikon D3000. One of my best decisions was taking my nice DSLR with me; I handled it and held it like a priceless artifact for a whole 2 weeks, but the photos caught everything amazingly. If you have any questions about a photo or about Paris, feel free to ask :) }


Life Lately: February

Friday, Friday, Friday. Where have you been all my life? After a super hectic few weeks of moving, organizing, and crazy winter weather, I’m ready to slow down a bit. House of Cards binge tonight? YES. In the mean time, here are a few snaps of my life lately through the lens of my iPhone. :)

IMG_0650{ My current reading list includes this book I bought from Shakespeare & Co. when I was in Paris 2+ years ago; I’d say it’s about time I get to reading it! }

Hope you have a fantastic Friday and relaxing weekend! <3

Fashion & Film: Funny Face

[Currently watching]

I certainly have a special place in my heart for all Audrey Hepburn movies. I’ve read biographies, watched her films over and over again, and soak in anything I can associated with Audrey. Who doesn’t? Funny Face is actually one of her earlier (ish) films, a few years before her ultra-fame from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (which might have a shout-out in a future Fashion & Film post). In Funny Face, we follow Audrey’s bookworm character, Jo, as she travels to Paris with a photographer and a fashion magazine editor in order to become the new “face” of fashion. It’s almost enough to watch this movie just in order to watch Fred Astaire and Audrey dance, but fashion seems to be its mainstay. Thin, ankle-length cigarette pants… Colorful, dramatic dresses… Posing in front of the Eiffel Tower.
