Dreaming of Paris with Chicwish

Dreaming of Paris with Chicwish

Spending the last few weeks sorting through all the pictures from my trip, revisiting memories, places we visited, and all the different sights we saw has really made me miss Europe. But if there is one city I miss more than any of the others, it’s Paris. Paris has always held a special place in my heart. Since as long as I can remember Paris in my mind has been this magical city full of love, the most fashionable people, the tastiest breads and cheeses.. and (as the french would never actually say themselves) that little je ne sais quoi.

When I think of Paris I think of picnics on the Seine, people watching while drinking an espresso from a cafe patio near the avenue des Champs-Élysées, indulging on macarons at Ladurée, and of course drinking wine in the evening with a spectacular view of the Tour Eiffel. Like for most people, the Eiffel Tower for me is the most recognizable and symbolic structure in all of Paris. There is something so beautiful and dazzling about it. Lovers from around the world flock to Paris to get that signature picture, kissing with the tower behind them. It’s become a symbol of love, of culture, of beauty, and everything Paris itself has to offer as a city.

For as long as I can remember I’ve been mesmerized by the beauty of Paris and everything it represents, so when I found this Chicwish skirt I knew I just had to have it immediately. I absolutely adore the beautiful springtime in Paris feel of the skirt, with the two painted lovers admiring the beauty of the Eiffel Tower. From the perfect midi skirt length, to the pleats, the soft blush tones, and of course the beautiful print, this skirt is a piece of art on it’s own. I paired the skirt with the prettiest bubblegum pink bow blouse which is also from Chicwish. If you’ve been following my blog you know I’ve been obsessed with bow blouses for quite some time, and I love how this one has a high neckline and off-centered bow which puts a nice twist on the classic bow blouse style. I don’t think I’ve ever felt quite as girly and chic as I did wearing this outfit, strolling through St. James Park. Something about mixing a pleated skirt, perfect pinks, and a picture of the Eiffel Tower just makes you feel like everything is right in the world.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I was in Paris one evening, while admiring the sparkling Eiffel Tower from the Pont Alexandre III with a close friend of mine, we promised each other that we would be back together again sometime in the next year. And while at this moment I don’t exactly know when that will be, at least now I can feel like I have a little piece of Paris with me whenever I wear this skirt.

    This is such a fun and feminine look! Midi skirts have always been one of my go to wardrobe pieces when I want to add a bit of sassiness to an outfit. That blouse was the perfect choice for yours!

    Paris really is just the most special place on earth – it’s been my home on and off over the years, and I’m always longing to go back. But when I can’t, I love to have it in my life in other ways, even if it’s as simple as an Eiffel Tower print, so naturally, I love this skirt. And I think you styled it beautifully 🙂

    This outfit is so gorgeous! I am loving the print on that skirt, it’s so fun!

    Ponte Alexandre III truly is a great place to both shoot at (if you want a good backdrop with the Eiffel Tower) as well as just sit and ponder upon life on. Paris holds a special place in my heart too and even though I’m a frequent visitor, every time feels unique, like I’m one of them, a Parisian. Maybe one day I will be, or then I’ll just keep visiting the city until my last breath I take. Whichever turn my life takes, my heart will always be in Paris, as i can tell yours is too.

    Hello my dear, you know I got emotional for really no reason reading this, aha. Your outfit is perfect and that skirt is so unique and very special. My love lives in Paris and reading about it made me really wish I was there right now. Sadly as you may know from my posts earlier this year, I can’t leave the usa because my passport was not approved. Anyways, this skirt and post has me missing my other half and wishing I could be in Paris right at this moment. Thank you for this special post.
    Love, Dom
