As some of you guys may already know if you follow me on Insta
or have seen my previous street style blog post
I was in Paris last week on a work trip. I went over on the Eurostar and didn't feel the best when I arrived, so I wandered through the streets of Paris, camera in hand taking in the sights and some much needed fresh air!
I love wandering through places I've never been before and despite Paris being only a stones throw away from London, I haven't been there since I was a kid and that was on a trip to Disneyland!
I really enjoyed my little wander and exploration of the shopping districts, here are a few of the pictures I took on my way to Galleries Lafayette.
During my walk I came across some lovely little independent stores, book shops, retro stores and a billiards only store, now niche! I managed to capture some of the street art too. It always interests me, a cities street art, it says a lot about the people and the culture of a place.
I'd never been to Galeries Lafayette before and was totally mesmerised by the huge space, amazing visuals and all the brands and designer stuff they had on offer. It really is massive and their Christmas centrepiece is incredible! It's ginormous, there windows are definitely worth a look too, full of character and colour. A great destination for a spot of holiday shopping.
After work, I managed to catch a few of the Parisian sights, the Louvre, Notre Dame and wandered down the River Seine after filling my stomach with delicious French cuisine and a glass of red!
It was a short but sweet trip to the French capitol and I hope to be back soon to discover some more, hopefully next time I'll fly and feel a little bit better!
